      Wow this is a good question! Not sure I could imagine living forever! It would mean that you would get to achieve everything you wanted in life because you had all the time in the world to do it! I guess that might be a bit boring though! For me I need goals and dreams that maybe I might never achieve but its the journey you make in life to try to reach them that’s the fun and most interesting part!
      Physically we cant live forever but you can live forever in peoples memories based on the things you do in life and the impact you have on people. So for me the best way would be to do something good that means you will be remembered.

      Hi unclepolly,

      I think in all honesty that there is not a way to live forever. I think you can do quite a lot to extend your natural lifetime, by exercising, eating a healthy diet and avoiding things that are bad for your health such as smoking and drugs.

      But, we don’t know what medical science will find in the coming years so who knows, I think the other good question, is would you want to live forever? I’m not sure that I would want to!
