What would you do if you lived forever? Don't you think you would be bored?

It depends on the effects on humans and whether or not the positive gain outweighs the negative consequences
I came here initially with my family. Yes I do like it alot.
Think of it this way: if life is boring, then death is even more boring.
What if humans could survive (but obviously be worse off) but it will prove fatal to most other life ?
How can death be boring ? You aren't around anymore.
No I am not inferring that life is boring. What I mean is since there is a natural progression of things which make life interesting for example being a child (innocence), a teenager (new physical and emotional sensations), adulthood (taking responsibility), Old age (the passing away of worldly interest). All these are 'new' experiences in the stages of life. If we lived forever it would be a stage of stagnation and there lies the boredom, everything would be a repeat if you know what I mean of one stage in existence.
If we're going to be worse off what's the point?
The way I see it: if it's good for humans, that's what matters.

What do you mean what's the point ? It happens, it's inevitable..
It's not like humans are destroying the natural world just for the hell of it.. although, I have some real doubts.
We do it for our own benefit, and I don't see anything wrong with that if that is what you're asking.
Also what would you do with about population growth if everyone survives? Or do you think there would only be a few thousand people, the same people, who would populate the earth forever?
Also could you please look at my clarification on post #86 and respond to it.
You make a good point but it's assumed that you'd live forever and remain physically fit. Then you can just enjoy life.
But we cannot expand past 6 billion without being...well you know crowded. Wouldn't it get boring if there were only the same people everywhere?
Do you still beat your wife?
haha, that's the oldest joke in the book, couldn't resist, sorry.
but seriously, do you?
Enjoy the same things over and over ad infinitum?
You don't see what's wrong with destroying the natural world ??
I'm not married, and no:bugeye:
There's plenty to do.
No, I don't see what's wrong with altering the natural world if it benefits us.
lmao, so I take it your wife got tired of getting beat and divorced you? Just as I suspected.
Somebody please let this guy in on the joke, I'm laughing too hard.
