On  cycles, there are so many, the life/death/birth mysteries wouldn't go anywhere.

What if they did?  What if death becomes optional?

I am not sure if I buy into what some of my transhumanist friends posit...that eventually, technology will advance to the point where we can all choose when and if we want to die.  I have friends (very educated, down-to-earth friends) who honestly believe that they will some day have the option of having their minds uploaded somewhere and having their individual, personal consciousness persist indefinitely. 

It's entirely possible that these folks have read too much science fiction, but what if they're right?  What if the cycles of death/rebirth no longer applied to us?

I hope this doesn't divert from the topic too much.
