    >Digital Immortality is bad
    Tell me you didn't understand the game without telling me.
    It's basically making the exact opposite argument:
    >Digital immortality is the only form we will ever achieve, is completely desirable and potentially achievable within our lifetimes. While that may suck for our meat bodies, we should strive towards it if we have any desire to transcend.

      the game is not making that argument you retarded pseud, that's just what you got out of it

        >Main character consistently elated or relieved when they found out they survived.
        >Entire game's plot is about ensuring digital immortality survives.
        >Every single bad character in the game resisted or straight up hampered the progress towards that goal.
        >The dark pre-credits scene pre-empts the most common arguments... only to immediately tear them down with the post-credits scene.
        >Literally every single time the story directly addresses the issue, the characters conclude "Sucks to be that guy, but I'm not him anymore".
        You're so fucking slow it hurts to listen to you struggle to express your thoughts through mechanical keystrokes.

        Truly antisocial. Enjoy posting on the internet about how "Big Alive" conned everyone into leaving the planet before the coal runs out and your computer switches off.

        ~~*digital immortality*~~ is just suicide. Also biological immortality is achievable within our lifetimes.

        >Also biological immortality is achievable within our lifetimes.
        Man, we can't even make immortal cells let alone immortal people. We're so far removed from biological immortality, there are people chasing lobsters because they think that the lack of cellular senescence is the same as immortality.
        We're so far away, we're hitting bees with hammers to get the honey out.

        I'm sure the soma trapped at the bottom of the ocean for all eternity is having a great time

        Sucks to be that guy, but I'm not him anymore.

          Trust me, I spent plenty of time with social groups for myself and 10 others. I learned that you can be happy alone and don't need the bad choices of others weighing you down.

            Why are you convinced that any version of digital immortality means forced interactions?

          We have been able to do that consistently almost 100 years ago. Try google next time.

            An immortal cell line is not an immortal cell by a definition practical to humans, you sponge.
            Lack of senescence isn't the same as biological immortality - it just means the cell doesn't trigger autolysis or flag itself for endocytosis/apoptosis.

            Immortal cells are virtually impossible because cellular mechanisms become damaged. Such an immortal cell is basically just a cancer factory, or it never reproduces and in which case is never replaced.
            There's a reason every "immortal cell" was taken from a tumor.
            Maybe try something more useful than google next time.

            Oh, I get it. You think the protagonist is the voice of the message.
            No, dummy, the protagonist is the voice of the naive player - slowly educated by everyone else.
            That's why he's so clueless and that's why every version of him learns that digital immortality is the only way to survive and only the older, dumber versions of himself think otherwise.
            It's about growth.

      NASA sponsoring and sensationalizing clickbait articles of "near misses" to push their garden gnome garbage is never going to phase me.

    Call me when digital immortality doesn't involve making a copy of my consciousness. I want MY consciousness to be preserved.

    Wouldn't the ark get pulverized by space junk before too long? There's probably loads of shit in orbit by the time the game takes place.

    The amount of people who could not comprehend the idea that the game is lying to you and expects you to come to the right conclusion without it holding your hand is incredible.

    Did all of you guys miss the part where it's not immortality? They get 1,000 years of battery time on the Ark, assuming the hardware even lasts that long.
    Also everyone on the planet still died, the ones on the Ark are electronic copies. The game trolls you into believing that the mc's consciousness is transferred across every time you copy him. He's not, you're the copy, that motherfucker is dead and the human race's legacy is a fixed-time electronic circlejerk of losers in space who will probably go nuts after a while.
