Scientists have released some good news and some bad news. They are on track to eradicate death. Unfortunately they will have only cracked it a few seconds after you die. That’s right, you. You, specifically.
They have found a way to keep people living forever, but they won’t have finished getting to grips with it until shortly after you hit the hay permanently, (and yes it will be too late to bring you back).
After hearing the news, one man laughed and pronounced, “I wouldn’t want to live in this garbage town anyway, the environment is going down in quality if you ask me. It will be too crowded too!”
A scientist replied, “Ah, but we’re also on track for leaving the earth and travelling the universe at faster than light speeds, until we ascend to a high state of blissful consciousness.”
The man laughed again and responded with, “sounds shit.”
However, scientists have urged you not to worry. Or worry, but do not worry about worrying. Death isn’t something you will ever have to worry about, because after you die, you will be dead. Or rather, you won’t be dead, because there won’t be a ‘you’ to be dead anyway. In fact, what you call ‘you’ is really just an expression of the universe in its current form, so you shouldn’t worry about that too much either. In fact, whatever ‘you’ is, will be free of everything, including death. Actually, ‘death’ is only a word we give to an experience, which isn’t really an experience at all.
But you will probably miss out on flying cars.
