Is That Really a Question??

Abstract

Reality is almost always wilder and more complex than we imagine. And as human society evolves, more and more opportunities open up. This is likely to include the possibility of earthly immortality. No analysis will be made of the progress in biotechnology and genetics that will ultimately allow this – since reality is almost always wilder and more complex than we imagine. What is investigated is what the understanding of immortality may be. Is it central for immortality to have continuous consciousness, or would we be happy just to know that the substrate of our spirit will not perish, merely be transformed? But also, if we achieve earthly immortality will we be challenging god? Will earthly immortality mean that we might lose possible eternal life with god?
