Well, to be honest with you, I'm not afraid of death. I AM afraid of experiencing the horror of watching as someone hijacked my metal body and went on a killing spree.

So ultimately, "immortality" offers little that I want-- and a lot that I don't.

Like I said, being the "biological computer" that I am already comes with enough risks... at least they are familiar risks that I feel comfortable with.

The idea of immortality is actually one of my biggest FEARS, not hopes.

I suppose if one were terrified of death, this would seem like heaven to them. But if one is not afraid of death at all, it just seems like a lot of risk for little to no real reward...

I can already access the internet, I can already do most things I want to do.

I don't want to be a superhuman, I just want to live a simple, happy life. I want to feel my daughter's cheek, in a real way. I want to cuddle her and I want to enjoy life as it comes.

I don't want my body to go berserk one day and me not be able to feel her and crush her because my sensors malfunctioned.

I don't want to wake up one day with part of my body not working and a repair bill of millions of dollars because that particular servo-mechanism went out of style 200 years ago.

It's bad enough to have medical bills. Repair bills on an ailing mechanical body, or the worry of how to "upgrade" to the latest model...

All of that sounds kind of terrible to me, honestly.

I'd rather die. And I'm not saying that in a "OMG, THE HORROR" kind of way. It's like saying that I'd rather drive to my vacation than go through TSA's brutalities.

Just not worth it to me.

No interest at all in immortality.
