One day we realize we will die.
Bias: Where we get things wrong.
4 stories of Immortality:
Story 1: ELIXIR – [Myth of the Fountain of Youth] We want to avoid death. Science can cure death.
Story 2: RESURRECTION – I am this body. I can rise up & live again. [Reincarnation] Cryonics is having yourself frozen.
Story 3: SOUL – Leave body behind. Live on as a Soul.
Story 4: LEGACY – Live on through your work. Live on through your echo fame.
Be skeptical of all these stories we believe because we are biased. Because we are afraid pf death. Fear of death is natural but not rational. Too scary to believe we will be gone.
Quote from Ludwig Wittgenstein: “Death is not an event in life. We do not live to experience death.”
Our lives are bound by birth and death.
You just make it a good story – your life.
