One point to consider is that all the damning information we have about Oxadrenals comes from Oxadrenals. However, this does not necessarily excuse him — it may be a form of deliberate confession intended to neutralize our judgment and/or expunge his guilt. Still, I agree with Stephen that we need to hear his side.

I wonder why he hasn’t responded yet to our requests for an explanation. I understand that he’s under stress, but as I understand it he isn’t literally under attack. — Kate

    I’m still wondering if we are being tested. After all, nature hasn’t seen fit to make this trait universal; in fact it is quite rare. So, for those who have the trait of never aging, they have a conundrum. If it does become possible to extend non-aging to others, why should they? What about us would make a compelling argument in favor of their passing it along to anyone who was not born with it?

    Right or wrong, they seem to be possibly giving us a test, and to me it does make sense. Aside from the aging issue, the biggest difference between them and us would seem to be a matter of perspective. So, if given the chance to be like them – do we have the capacity to see things from their perspective? Or, would we rather continue to be the same snappy little curs they have delt with for centuries, or even millenniums? The type of cur that now stands of the cusp – with the ability to destroy ALL life on the planet with the push of a button, including the True Immortals! Must we adhere to the notion that we need everything our way, and we need it now, or can we learn to calmly wait?

      SWe have more experience, to be sure, and a longer perspective. But, friend, let us call no one “cur.” Mortal humanity has done many wise things; that button, amidst all fears and temptations, has never been pushed. Nor are we more deserving; we received this gift without prior earn, nor have more right to it than any other. Our reasons for protecting others lie elsewhere. More on this subject shall appear in a full post soon.

    Hello, S.
    How have you been?

    I look forward to seeing that post. :)

    Sort of relating to Merlin’s comment, I adhere to being the ‘hopeful skeptic.’ That is, I like the idea of the foreseeable future of immortals & think people can learn to deal with it if & when it comes. People in general can be surprisingly adaptive.

    However, I’ve seen/heard of too many times where people try & hope for one thing only to receive/discover something completely different or nothing at all in these sort of endeavors.

    That being said, I tend to think not much will come of a DNA sequencing of a single individual…The probability of actually pinpointing the ‘immortal gene’ is somewhat slim in my opinion. What I think this will show is a very complicated map that can only be read by very few people in very small portions. The likelihood of picking out the ‘right’ something unknown within something so complex is astronomical. (Chances might go up if there were many samples from many immortal individuals, but as there is only one sample…)

    So, basically, I think something may come of this, just maybe not what everyone here seems to be expecting. (maybe there might be a happy gene or something located…lol) I still will remain hopeful the endeavor is successful, regardless of how improbable it may be.

    The ‘hopeful skeptic’ ;)

    i’m touched and humbled by your answer, S.

    i supposed if people do get “immortal” , this will affect every system of governments of the world. The consequence will most probably be violatile with reactions from religous groups, the central eloominatis created from the first place – contracts(with vatican?) that must not be broken.

    Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth
