    and how did you gain what you have?

    given to you?
    self endowed?
    accidental?.....and the result is not guaranteed?

    I'm afraid if I take the Hindu view I'm reading about, it gets a bit too detailed for me to sum up in one or two posts.

    I guess it depends on what is meant by "eternity." Presumably, the molecules that make up my body will still exist in some form or another. Whether *I* will personally exist as a unique lifeform, forever and ever - who can say?

    I doubt homo sapiens will achieve immortality but man may give birth to something that does.

    Eternity is bestowed on all but memory of the path to get there is not.

    Why would anyone want to live forever???

    Pass things onto your children and future generations, your time will end.

    Just one, MYSELF. Because you too are me (or you can say you are me/I am you, it acts both ways). Aham Brahmasmi. Eko Brahm, dwiteeyo nasti (Brahman is one, there is no second).
    Even void is me only. I have two phases - Existence and Non-existence. It is only a difference of perspective. :D

    maybe I should have mentioned a division.....
    eternity in body
    eternity in spirit

    we did not choose to enter this life

    many of us want to continue after the last breath

    either way.....I don't think the choice is ours

    so.....back to the choices I posted in the op

    I think it is quite simple, person must be righteous to get eternal life:

    These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.
    Mat. 25:46

    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Romans 6:23

    .......difference of perspective........
    outside or inside...all percussive is linked,
    each atom, every single atom, linked to all.
    But....Frisco is a stretch.

    Did I miss my bus ?
