Immortality is not a super-power, it is a curse, amirite?

That's based on the haver's perspective! Maybe they want to outlive all of their friends and family

Immortality with the ability to end your life whenever you wanted to is what would make it not a curse.

Live forever, but everyone around you that you love dies.

@Squintygibberoses4jt Live forever, but everyone around you that you love dies.

Also if you live forever, but don't have everlasting youth you'll just keep growing older and older until you're just a vegetable that can't move or speak, but also can't die.

The immortal will see every friend die over the years. Imagine meeting a person and knowing already that you will outlive her and because of this you will see her die in the future

i guess anyone who's played god of war would kinda agree to that

If they could solve dying from old age they would have to do something about the population. I see something like Star Treks "A Taste of Armageddon" happening.

Depends on the type of immortality.

If you will not die of old age but could die by other means, it wouldn't necessarily be.

That depends on the perspective. For most yes, but there are plenty who are more attached to their work and would like to see it through and see the effects. But eventually I guess even that would grow old.

I can see your point of view, i do think that after some time the immortal will just get bored

Imagine living forever, but also getting old forever. Eventually you would just be a meat bag on the floor too demented and writhing in pain to do anything. Yay immortality. No one said immortality meant staying young forever.

I dunno about that, i would take immortality over dying any day. Assuming my body and mind were still properly usable for the whole time

Idk, thats the way movies try and portray it as, that its a lonely living hell. But im sure shut ins would love it. They're already lonely and they have no friends. So since they have no attachments i think they'd take pretty well to immortality. Working just enough to have an apartment, food, internet, and video games, but for 100s of years. Maybe occasionally getting a wild hair up their ass and changing their life for a couple decades before becoming a shutin again.

...floating in space where the earth and the sun used to be is no proper existence
