Reality is what it is. Everything else is just a model life is just about Transhumanism.
From Plato to Einstein to random humans like myself, we are all trying to figure out what makes this world tick. Transhumanism is an international and intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and creating widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.
Why Death Might Not Be Bad for You?
The “deprivation” account of death says that dying is bad because you are deprived of life, which you would have otherwise enjoyed were it not for your untimely non-existence. The ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus made the first major challenge to this argument by asking when death is bad for you. Death is not bad now, because I am alive. But when I am dead, death is not bad because I am not here. “If death has no time at which it’s bad for me, then maybe it’s not bad for me.” Kagan suggests. The idea that something can be bad for you only if you exist is the next argument Kagan examines.
- Cell death is preceded by severe disruption of inorganic ion homeostasis. Seconds to minutes after an injury, calcium, protons, sodium, potassium and chloride are exchanges between the cell and its environment.
- Simultaneously, irons are shifted between membrane compartments inside the cell, whereby mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum play a crucial role.
- Depending of the type and severity of injury, two manually exclusive metastable states can be reached, which predict the final outcome.
Cells characterized by large increases in cytosolic [Ca2+], [Na+] and [Mg2+] swell and die by necrosis; alternatively, cells characterized by high [H+] and low [K+], with normal [Na+] and normal to moderate [Ca2+] increases die by apoptosis.
The problem with this mentality is that we are already immortal! And there is a reason why our corporeal bodies die. Simply put, we live our lives in this reality in order to our consciousness, one life instance at a time.
If we didn’t die, our consciousness evolution would come to a grinding halt, as we spend the rest of eternity playing solitaire and standing in line at the buffet.
