Well, I for one would love an eternal life; at least for now. Maybe
when I reach 734 065 years old, I'll feel different. If there is any way
that I can attain eternal life, I will. I will be happy to live 150 years
if there is *no chance* of me living least I'll know that I tried.
As for feasibility, I cannot accurately say. Something seemingly miraculous
could come up tomorrow that ensures eternal life. The only thing I can do
is hope, and try to succeed. "...For he on honey-dew hath fed, and drunk
the milk of Paradise."
