All the logic for indefinite lifespans being physically possible are compelling, but here's a song that disagrees...if it's in a song, it must
be true. ;)
-contains coarse language.
It's a strange reality we find ourselves in, with no beginning possible (what caused this 'event'?)...nor an end,because if something existed once, it will again given an infinite amount of 'time'/change.
The idea that everything decays, and stays that way forever seems strange to me. We've mastered fire, computers, manipulating individual atoms...how long until we solve entropy? (if that's the fate of the universe) we've got a lot of time, look at how far we've come in the last few hundred years.
If we lived an indefinite amount of time, how good would the pro sc2 players be? imagine that. Perfect macro/micro, Machiavellian strategies...
how good would you be after a few thousand years of playing?
