that song is the best on a blue bird day,
although i know what you mean and although i guess that most people would agree with you, i am sure a lot of people would literally kill for an eternal life.
its like king midas, it seems so great to have so much gold, but at some point you recognize how bad it is, and i guess not much people would think in advance.
for me, i have a total fear of my life passing by without getting the best out of it. i turned 21 in the meantime and there is so much that i want to do. but it helps me, when my mother tells me (who has had the absolute standard life, nothing spectactular from "our" point of view and is 48 right now) that she doesnt want to be young again. and she always says that she managed to do too much and she wished that she could take back some of it.
what i wanna say is: it seems good to live long, but when we all are somewhat like 40-50, i guess we wouldnt like to go for another 100-200 years. there is this timeframe in our heads and it is totally unimaginable to live for 300 years or even longer
wow, i had a economics exam like a week ago and you have a point. i would say that marginal return is negative, like for almost everything, especially at very large amounts.
i expect that by the year 300 you would sit around at home and count the hours and slowly get dumb, crazy but it is more likely that you would kill yourself at around 150 or so (even without an aging body)
