→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: RUSTIC: PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY
vertical line Posted on Sep.10.2007 @ 11:16AM EDT by stephen

If death offered you a game of chess, in the present moment, for your self whom your mind could rationalize out of existence, and / or for your soul, which may or may not exist, up against a wager of physical immortality, would you take him on?

 

Rustic:

This is a Buddhist board so feel free to comment on your above post. Physical immortality is not sought by the Buddhist. In fact many wish to put a stop to their constant cycle of rebirth. So playing chess with death is a no win situation. There is no winning or losing with death, death is just what it is. MU

vertical line So this is how you offset your emissions - what a stinker of an unfeasibly large cattle prod.

This is not a Buddhist board - it's not even a chess or monopoly board.

Why are you seeking physical immortality?

That particular post makes sense in the context of its mother and father thread.

Ask a scholar to explain hypotheticals.

I decline to comment further.
