Search For Immortality Gaurav Ojha Religions are preoccupied with what happens to us after we die and the religious ideas of heaven, hell, paradise, judgment, resurrections and eternal life are all rooted in a belief that there is more to human life than just life and death.
Even after death, religions remind us that human life survives in some capacity or dimension. Besides, religions for thousands of years have sustained human desire for everlasting life and as an important cultural artifact religion still maintains this hope for millions of people.
Fear of death is perhaps the greatest emotion, all of us human beings share together and this fear has also generated a hope for eternal life in human beings.
In our eastern religions, for example, we have a concept that drinking somaras divine nectar makes us forever young and immortal. In the past, people have also experimented with alchemy and magic to remain alive for ever. Moreover, in a secular society now this hope for everlasting life has shifted from religious imaginations to science.
However, modern treatment of religious quest for after-life seems bizarre. Many people are ready to keep their dead bodies deep-frozen until science sufficiently develops technologies to restore life back unto to them. Sci-fi fantasies for after-life death seem bizarre, but the progress in scientific research for bringing back extinct species to life through altering genes and creations of artificial organs that prolong life has at least given us a hope for immortality.
Our desire for survival and fear of death pushes us human beings to find cultural artifacts that give us hope for immortality. Compared to different views on immortality that are both symbolic and literal, my own view on search for immortality is rather realistic. I acknowledge all the progress science has made regarding artificial intelligence, creating artificial organs for curing diseasing and introducing technologies that prolong life.
It has been hypothesised that human beings with the life span of years are living right now. However, I find it bizarre to keep dead bodies in frozen state for years in our quest for personal immortality.
I think of immortality more as a social, natural and ecological phenomenon. My own search for immortality focus not on surviving after death rather than becoming part of this universe by giving my body back to the earth after I die and more importantly by becoming part of the past, as an ancestor for the future generation to progress.My own search for immortality focus not on surviving after death rather than becoming part of this universe by giving my body back to the earth after I die and more importantly by becoming part of the past, as an ancestor for the future generation to progress.

Preparing for Immortality. Qin Shi Huang was laid to rest in the mausoleum that, according to Sima Qian, he had begun to build when he ascended the throne of Qin. Somewhat surprisingly, the historian writes about the emperor’s magnificent mausoleum without mentioning the impressive ranks of attendants discovered outside.

In mythologies around the world, humans who achieve immortality are often regarded as gods, or as possessing god-like qualities. One of the earliest works of literature, the 22nd century B.C.E. Epic of Gilgamesh, focuses on a hero’s quest for immortality.
In some traditions, immortality was bestowed by the gods themselves. A misfit ant, looking for "warriors" to save his colony from greedy grasshoppers, recruits a group of bugs that turn out to be an inept circus troupe.
