Is Death Final? Who Wants To Live Forever?

Death has always fascinated me. It is the period in this sentence. Death marks the spot where it ends and my life as I knew it, cease to exist. Or, doesn't it?

Below is a video on Exploring Life Extension from the Immortality Institute.

I want to live forever if such can be accomplished through science and technology. The idea of having my own clone/s on top of being immortal (depends entirely on future regulatory policies) is very attractive to me. I can be out fishing on a given day while my clone is off to a distant journey to our galactic neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy. There are just so many things to do in this observable universe that one physical body cannot possibly accomplish in one human lifetime. I want to meet Van Gogh and shake his hand. Or, meet the clone of Jesus (if he ever existed at all and if fossils can be traced) which is unlikely for he disappeared up in the sky! Oh. well let's just forget about that dude then. :)

Hope you watch the video and share your insights.
