Viva forever, where comes the feeling of wanting to live forever?

Hits: 0

I remember when I was a bit younger around the age of 24 or 25, A person came to me and asked me:

-Do you want to live forever?

my response was somewhat like a response which is common between younger people. I said, why should I want to live in this world more than I need to. I mean with all the misery and pain in life, I felt that one life would be quite enough.

Most of the suicides among elderly people, at least in Sweden, is the result of loneliness and feeling of not finding meaning with life. otherwise, as older a person gets, he appreciates life more. There are lots of elderly who have a wish to live forever. To be honest many people wish to live forever.

This raised a question in my mind. I wanted to know where this feeling comes from. I mean we have some examples and understanding of almost everything we wish to have, If I would wish a brand-new car, I must have seen it somewhere or maybe test drove one. I would then get a wish to have the car for myself.

The situation gets more complicated when a person to wish to live forever.  I don’t know anyone who has experienced or understood the meaning of eternity, yet many people want it.

In our reality, which is composed of the materialistic objects around us, nothing is forever.

The claim above is not exactly accurate, there is something that we have experience of and exists for eternity. Let’s go scientific, what I am talking about is energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Energy can be converted from one type to another. One can also convert matter to energy and opposite (Of course we still don’t know how to convert energy to matter, with this of course, that mainstream scientists don’t know how to convert energy to matter).

Does the wish for living forever comes from the fact that we know energy exists forever?  In that case, many people who know this fact could get this idea, but the reality is that many people who don’t know this fact also wish to live forever.

To be honest, I have never met a person who claimed that he would like to wish forever because he found out that energy can exist forever.

Let’s consider our consciousness. I cannot claim I know exactly what consciousness is made of, but I can say that it is not made of matter. If we consider that consciousness is some sort of energy and both energy and matter are made of vibrations (According to string theory), then we have another situation. Every person has consciousness and if this consciousness is made of energy then we can claim that we have been part of eternity.  I mean this is not as crazy as it sounds. Even if you consider religions like Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The belief is that humanity was created by Almighty God and then given energy or a soul if you wish.

Maybe subconsciously we are aware of eternity. In that case, it would make sense that people wish to live forever. If one has an understanding about something, he can wish it as well.

I mean we came from eternity and will go back to it. Now in between and what will happen after death, is another story.

That story is composed of different belief and is different for each and every one of us. What I mean is that it depends on each person and his belief for example what happens after death. Different belief doesn’t necessarily need to be correct according to you and I but that is the point, a person’s belief has to make sense for him.

The thing that it doesn’t make sense for me is, why all these cruelties between different nations and people? 

Aren’t we all coming from the same source? That is of course another discussion.

I was born and raised in 1968 in Tehran, the capital of Iran. At the age of 18, I was enlisted for the mandatory service in the military. At that time Iran was in a bloody war against Iraq. I had to endure the two years at the military. Soon after my service was ended, I got a job as a bank teller. I worked at this job for 4 years. 1992 I moved to Sweden to continue studying. At the same year, I met my lovely wife and married her. We got two children shortly after. I started university in 1997, and at the year 2000, I got my BSc degree in electrical engineering. After my education, I have had many jobs, Software designer, programmer, project manager. I am fluent in three languages, Swedish, English, and Persian (mother tongue). To sit in one place and not do anything, is a concept which I am not familiar with. I am active all the time. I like fantasy, Sci-fi books. To discover the unknown always fascinates me. Any mystery which is worth investigating captures my interest. It is always fascinating to see how people turn their imaginations and experiences into art which people can share.
