Scientists are hard at work finding ways to prolong human life, or even eliminate mortality in general. Most of this work can’t protect humans against things like being hit by a bus or slayed by a psychopath (Happy Halloween, all!), but they could stop cell decay and aging as we know it.

So much of how we build our lives, pace our activities, create goals for ourselves, and interpret information is based on the knowledge that we will someday die. Imagine if that just…went away. It’s almost impossible to comprehend all the parts of your life that would touch. And it may not be as pretty as you think. Here are reasons you actually don’t want to live forever.
