I'm not really getting the 'it's selfish' argument. How is it any more selfish than extending life by normal means?
Extending life != Immortality
death is a motivation, but it's not the only one, and if i was going to live forever, why would i spend eternity metaphorically jacking off?
a) it's not the only one but it is the ultimate one
b) you would have no choice, humans are not designed to live eternally
Also, please try not to resort to ad hominem just because you don't agree with someone. It's natural not to agree with someone, but it is really immature to try to insult them because of it.
And I think the scope of how you live your life must be pretty damn small if you insist you cannot be affected by the death of someone or something else.
You are affected by anything that happens around you. Death is a part of the world just like anything else. Trying to avoid death is like trying to avoid air. Remember that without death there can be no life. The two are interconnected.
imagine the future internet where minds are transferred on computers
I can already feel the giant wave of haters coming my way but this is impossible. Mind is not a procedural state machine.
