  1. Talk about coincidence. I just finished watching New Moon. Personally, I’d be okay with both as a two-for-one special. Sorry, not that I’ll glorify vampires, but I’d be okay with immortality and a touch of mind reading on the side.

    Hummmmmm???? peoples minds are so deep and same old same old …..think I would rather live forever…just sitting in a rocking chair on wrap around porch on a beautiful farm ….watching the world evolve around me …as things grew and things moved forward or maybe backwards …. yes I would have to say living forever would be my pick ….

  3. Read someone else’s mind?….No thanks, I’m fine….I have been “working” so hard to stop reading MY OWN!
    The goal here is to find silence… go IN, meet one’s self… and then my friend, you live forever!! =)

  4. I think reading someone’s mind would be helpful sometimes I suppose! But then I guess it would be scary to know everyone’s thoughts & Living forever…? wouldn’t want that either we all have to leave this world at one point..

  5. Ooh, this is a great one. Leave forever,how long ? I wander what will become of you when there are nobody on earth.

    Read people’s mind am sure you will seek death at the end.

  6. I’d rather be able to ‘read minds’ than live forever. Immortality is overrated, and it doesn’t make you appreciate life since it’s ‘forever’. If you could read minds you have a definite advantage on swaying situations to your advantage. Call it unfair advantage or manipulation, but I hate the mind games that come with human interaction.

  8. Neither!! I would never want to live forever. I believe in life after death. I truly try not to care about what other people think of me and even when I do I probably don’t really want to know the answer.

  10. I would rather be able to read minds! I wouldn’t want to live forever because, when you think about it, it’s pretty miserable! After a few decades, everyone you know will be gone, and you will be old and alone, but never get to move on. That sounds very sad to me; the human mind is much more fascinating!! πŸ™‚

  11. You have to know darkness to appreciate the light. You have to know that you will sometime die to appreciate every living moment on earth.

    Imagine life without losing. Imagine life without failure. Imagine every Christmas with no surprises. Reading another person’s mind is not it is all it is cracked to be. It would be novel at first but I think a person would become bored rather quickly.

  12. Either choice has implications I don’t like. To read minds, no way. Wouldn’t even wanna go there. Live forvever? Only if I knew my body would not deteriorate with the passage of time! πŸ™‚ I wouldn’t want to see everyone I know pass “to the other side” either. Scary.

  13. i don’t like either of the two. reading minds loses challenges in everyday’s life, neither is living forever. nothing to hope, nothing to cherish, nothing to be happy. some kind of a boring life it will be.

  14. Living forever seems to be enough time to know yourself and perceive what is the real cause of living. But it also could be troublesome period of time. Person who could live forever sees that other people are dying, life is changing or becoming to an end… he could might forgot the true values of living… Either way I would rather read minds, because this is my utmost dream! When I was a little girl I allways imagined that I could read people minds. Sometimes I told them what they are thinking at that moment. The truth was coinciding sometimes. Because of this I become me more imaginative and brave person wihout any communication barrier. And I believe, that everyone can learn how to read minds.
