what bothers me about that is, it's like email - only a -copy- of the
-original-, which still dies. the fate of me - the original - isn't
changed just b/c the -copy- lives forever. nor does it matter if 3rd

you could maintain the health one normally enjoys at age 10, you could
live to be 1000.
i don't want to achieve immortality through my work, i want to achieve
immortality by not dying
