I'm not sure if I do or if thinking the idea of living forever as a "good thing" was just something that was planted in my mind like a lot of the other stuff. Is the desire to live forever something that I really want or have I been taught that it is something that I should want? I know I don't want to die, especially a violent death, but I can't imagine still wanting to be here 10 million years from now just because back in 19XX my parents concieved me. The fact that I'm even here seems so random. If they had gone to bed an hour sooner my mom might have gotten pregnant with some other baby.
Wouldn't you run out of things to do or things that seemed interesting? Wouldn't you feel trapped by life after awhile? Even when I'm having a nice vacation there's a part of me that wouldn't want to be on vacation forever.
For it to work I'd have to have some other mindset than what I do now. I'd have to be more like my dog who after 16 years, when I let him out into the back yard, he is as curious and excited as if it were the first time he ever was out there.
Also: If there is no sickness or death in the New System, what would happen if you were walking along in a grove of trees and a Coconut dropped out of a tree and landed on your head. Wouldn't it still crack your skull open and possibly kill you instantly or at least cause you terrible pain ?
Since no one will be unhappy, will I miss hearing a good "Cryin' in your Beer song". It seems like some of the most amazing human feats are borne out of misery and pain. (art,music,stories etc)
Will there be sad stories or will everything have a happy ending ?
Will I be dissapointed if I were to meet King David or someone like that and find out he's kind of a Dork?
Will the Watchtower Corp. or GB be running the show in the New System ?
What do you think??
