The so-called immortality, which is said to be able to live forever without aging.
The concept of immortality has been dealt with in comic books, movies, and video games, so I’m sure you’re familiar with it.
When I was a child, I used to genuinely envy immortality.
I wish I could stay young forever!
Oh no, who wants to be immortal? There are so many hard things in life, right?
Well, I think it makes me work harder because I know there’s an end.
I’m sure there are many opinions, but right now I personally do not want immortality.
I also believe that immortality is not necessary not only for me as an individual but also for humanity as a whole.
In fact, I believe that immortality is harmful to humanity.
Now, I will explain in detail below why I think immortality is harmful to humanity.
The world will be dominated by old values and human progress will stop
When you get immortality, it is obvious that no one will die and everyone will be healthy forever.
Normally, people born in the year 2000 will have already retired from the front line by 2070 or 2080.
However, I think that whether it is the year 2100 or 2200, those people will still be living normally and will try to stay in their high positions.
In other words, that means that opportunities will not come around for new people, and the system of trying to get things done by the older generation alone will be maintained.
Because of this lack of generational change, it will be difficult to change the old ways, and humanity will be stuck in a situation where the old inefficiencies and irrationalities will be difficult to improve.
When this happens, it is usually a good idea for young people to unite and speak out against their superiors, but in the case of immortality, the number of old people outnumbers the number of young people by far.
Since no one dies, the more time passes, the more people who are set in their ways of thinking, who don’t want to change their ways, who want to maintain the status quo and benefit from it, become much more numerous than the young.
If this happens, no matter how much the young people unite, it will be extremely difficult for the minority of young people to improve the situation because the old people are overwhelmingly the majority.
Currently in China, ethnic minorities are being oppressed, and I think something like that will happen.
In addition, people who have lived a lot of time will have more feelings of pride and prestige as a senior in life, so the probability of making strange decisions that are not rational will be higher than young people.
By not listening to the opinions of those around them and sticking to their own opinions, they are more likely to make mistakes.
On a national scale, if there is a little trouble with another country, they will say, “That country insulted me!” and the probability that they would try to launch an armed attack would be high, as they value their pride and honor.
In my opinion, this is a serious harm to humanity by immortality, because it is not good for society as a whole to have old people sitting in certain high positions.
However, I think it is human nature rather than an individual’s fault to become stubborn as one gets older, so I think this is something that cannot be helped.
And I think that immortality will exacerbate those negative aspects of human nature.
So I am afraid of immortality.
I remembered that I was not allowed to try something new by my professor who had old values when I was in a university lab even though I said “I want to do this research!”
Hmmm, it would be nice if there was someone in a high position who would understand our proposal……
The role of the youth is to destroy the old world
I think it is a problem when old people stay in a certain position for a long time, and at the same time, I think the role of young people is important.
Young people are not yet tainted by anything, which means they can see the world from a flatter perspective.
And when they look at the world from a flat perspective, they will often find things that seem strange.
The questions that the young people feel are the inefficient, irrational, and unfair things that the older generation has been doing, and if we can change those things, we will be able to make the world more efficient, rational, and fair.
The older generation has been doing things their way for so many years that it’s second nature to them and they don’t particularly question it.
And even if they do have doubts, they are often too lazy to change the way they have been doing things, so they leave it at that.
And even if they do have doubts, they are often too lazy to change the way they have been doing things, so they would usually leave it at that.
This is not to say that the older generation is lazy, but I think that’s just the way human beings are.
I think I’ll probably be like that when I’m 60 or 70 years old.
However, the world will not improve as it is. Inefficiency, irrationality, and unfairness will not make the world a better place.
I believe that it is the young people who have a flat perspective and energy that can change that and make the world a better place.
I believe that the world will become a better place if young people question and change the way things have been done in the past.
In the French Revolution, young people led the revolution, and by breaking down the old system, a new world took shape.
In Japan, too, young people took the lead in moving Japanese society, breaking down the old system and subsequently creating a new world.
Looking at this history, I believe that the role and mission of young people are to destroy the old world and build a better world.
However, I believe that the power of young people can be fully utilized in small companies, small local communities, etc., even if it is not on a large scale as in these historical examples.
I believe that the honest questions and opinions of young people should be listened to, because if a group’s strange traditions and practices are improved, the improvement will ultimately benefit the group.
If the inefficiencies and irrationality continue without any improvement, the new generation of young people will not accept them.
And they will be left behind by the times, and their inefficiency will make it difficult for them to achieve results, which will eventually lead to the demise of the group.
As you can see, the situation in the world has been improving thanks to the presence of young people, and I think that the current world is the result of the repetition of these improvements.
However, there are still many things that need to be changed in various situations, and I think that we are living in a world with a lot of room for growth.
I see. Young people have their own roles to play.
Maybe we should be more confident and “be young“!
I think the reason why people who are different from others break the rules and change the world is because they can quickly realize what the world needs from a different perspective
The principle of this world is that where there is a beginning, there is an end
Those that do not follow the principles of this world will be eliminated from this world.
Creatures that could not conform to the principles of this world disappeared without mercy.
In fact, 99.9% of the species that have ever been born are now extinct.
It’s the same with products.
Products that we do not want will eventually disappear.
We have to develop products according to certain rules that we feel we want.
Everything in the world operates under certain principles.
And just as there is a beginning and there is an end, I think it is also a principle of this world that when you are born, you die.
I wonder if human beings can continue to live under the new principle of immortality that ignores that principle.
If creatures evolve too much, they will become extinct.
So, if humanity evolves too much and acquires immortality, as I mentioned earlier, I wonder if people with old values will run amok and lead humanity to the end.
I think that the principle of immortality, which is contrary to the principles of this world, will eventually be eliminated from this world.
So far, I have explained why immortality is harmful to humanity.
As the times change, I believe that the world will not improve if the generation with the old values continues to dominate the top positions, and that the world will gradually improve if the younger generation with flatter values can exert their power.
On the other hand, I don’t think that the older generation is completely unnecessary.
After all, they have more life experience than the younger generation, and I don’t think we can completely deny that young people can get out of control.
In short, I think balance is important.
That’s why I think immortality is a problem if the balance between the younger generation and the older generation is upset.
Sure, maybe we don’t need “immortality”, but we definitely need “agelessness”!
But moms, dads, grandmas, and grandpas are all young, you know? I don’t know, I don’t think that’s healthy……
Well, but even if immortality is possible, maybe humanity can live well by making rules that force the older generation to leave certain positions after a certain age in the future.
By the way, I’m currently thinking that I’ll be satisfied if I live for about 80 years, and if I have to live for a long time, I’d like to be reborn again instead of immortal lol
Incidentally, I have also posted my theory on reincarnation, so please take a peek if you are interested ↓
So, thank you for reading this far! 🙂
Thank you very much! 🙂 🙂 😉
