It's no secret I'm no scientist, but I'm fairly convinced that the universe
as we know it (call it the "usable" universe) will one day play out. I
don't have a problem with that. For me "immortality" doesn't necessarily
mean living unto infinity. I have a hunch that after a few billion years my
curiosity will be pretty much satiated, and I'll be ready to "give up the
ghost." So I guess I'm not really reaching for forever. But a couple
thousand eons or so would sure be nice.
Life is good. Refuse to die (at least for now).
