I have many projects in science and engineering I'd like to complete before I exit this planet.  I really do like my current incarnation, and that of my girlfriend!  The non-space-time component survives the death of the body and the mind; unfortunately we lose our physical memories. However, I imagine that there is some sort of non-physical memory storage in the non-space-time component which does survive.

In order for reincarnation to have a purpose, there must be some sort of improvement with each incarnation.  Therefore there must be some sort of non-physical storage of what was learned each time (and added to that from previous incarnations), so that performance can be improved for the next time.  Of course our physical brain and mind dies each time.  The basic purpose of human (and humanoid) existence is ethical character development.

Great topic as I prepare to turn 70.. I've set a goal to live to 100 so I have a good 30 years left. My dad made it to 97 and my mom is still going strong at 92 so there's longevity in our family. Of course, Life Extension vitamins/supplements have played a major role in all this along with diet and exercise and a positive attitude. I don't see myself as 70.. I see myself the same way I did 30 or 40 years ago. So maybe they're right when they say that 70 is the new 40! YAY!

No, jomic, I've never watched "The Dead Files" on the Travel Channel.  I gave up Dish several months ago after they upped my price per month from $88 to $94, and I switched to Netflix--where I mostly watch Star Trek reruns.  What I like about Star Trek is that it celebrates science, engineering, and management--and especially human ingenuity to solve problems.

Dear Jiomic, Is that an up to date photo of you ? If so what are your YOUTHING recommendations ? Life can be good if your body is up for it as your`s SEEMS to be. But I could put up old photos of myself and do wonder if that is what you have done.   ...Oscar

For me, honestly I would like to live as long as possible, as long as I am not decrepit or suffering. I think most of us don't want to suffer like we've seen loved ones go through. My Dad is 84 and has had type 2 diabetes for 50 years. He is suffering and struggling miserably from day to day. Just about every meal I injest I think about what he goes through.
  I am now 59 and I think thanks to a healthy diet, supplementation, and balanced hormones I'm on track to live a long and healthy life. The longer the better!

Oscar.. the photo was taken on 7/25/14.. one day before I turned 70.. an early Leo by birth therefore ageless(according to an old friend who dabbles in astrology). Aside from that, I have some built-in genetics which I am grateful for. My dad lived to 97 and didn't look a day over 80. A lot of what we are and how we function has to do with our life choices. I've often thought about writing a book about this but I wouldn't know where to start. It's a lifelong commitment. Got to cut this short.. time to get to the gym. ~Jo

I am more focused on health span rather that lifespan. While technically these are separate, there is no meaning to live in sickness, pain or with a broken brain for a long time. I voted 3, but could also have voted 1, as I feel I am here for something and wish to complete the projects I have and develop new ideas into projects. I also wish to be close to my family, see my nephew and niece growing and be a helpful, living example and guide. I am also fundamentally optimistic about the future and very curious to know how well humanity is going to manage it. While there will still be huge suffering and catastrophes, as history keeps witnessing, my vision is in a positive evolution of the human being in the long run. Technology will continue enhancing us, in particular for cognition. I just would like to see that happening, the huge suffering of aging and body/mind degrading eliminated and would like to have in my hands the power to die when time has come, on my free will decision and when things are done!

It is our duty as men and women to proceed as though the limits of our abilities do not exist.
