Assuming that you remained healthy—imagine the vitality of a 30-year-old—would you want to live for 200, 500, or 1,000 years? Sloane Crosley, bestselling author of I Was Told There’d Be Cake and How Did You Get This Number, isn’t so sure. (Video courtesy of ReadRollShow.)

How dumb, selfish and greedy are we that we would wish to live forever? Where do the perils of the planet come into play here? How does this help our population explosion problem? People are living in poverty and starving, and the earth is suffering because of our massive resource extractions. When will we realize more is not better? What is wrong with us???? Are there not many more pressing problems than trying to live longer? I just don’t get it. We need to free ourselves from our fears of death and dying and learn to accept them. Why not leave the Earth to the next generation?

How long will it take for man to realize he is searching for Life and length of Life on the wrong road!! Obviously, decades – it’s not working. You just don’t keep going down the same road over and over -you finally stop and say – “This is the wrong road.” BUT, there is a right road and a right way but much more difficult than the wrong road — but it will work IF you are willing to recognize that in our present state – flawed and ego driven -we are losing the battle against aging and dieing. If we can come to the realization that in order to live we have to die – die to our ownselves and our own egos — IF we can find the power to overcome the fallen and broken state in which we are all in – then we will step into another realm – a NEW realm with NEW bodies — but still MEN still walking on this planet -still breathing the same air that the first man breathed but finally changed – after many trials and much processing – we become the NEW CREATION MAN. This, my friends and fellow seekers of life , is the real EVOLUTION – as a butterfly emerges from his cocoon we will fly and not crawl , we will have become the — NEW CREATION MAN over which death has no power.- It will confound the world, confound the scientists and it will change the world!!
