One thing I've realized in the past that's become more and more of a compulsive thought for me these days, is that failure or actually the fear of it is pretty much relative to "time" or a set time's final approach.
That when our perceived deadline looms ever near, we instinctively quicken our biological and physical pace. Psychologically averting to emotions rather than maintain a stoic control, as we critically examine the proper trajectory of our past decisions and corporeal proofs of development. Opening to doubt and losing faith in the foundations of our decisions.
Measuring where we are now to where we should be; an ideal against reality.
If time is what we worry about, be it a period of physical prime to effectively take advantage of, or planning around a once in a lifetime opportunity. Then wouldn't a sure fire way of relief be to make it so "time makes no difference"?
To biologically freeze an epoch of oneself; to be immortal.
If immortality were achievable through science, mysticism or a sanguinary curse, wouldn't the longevity it entails psychologically remove the pressure we as mortals have to accomplish something of value and prestige in a single moment in time. To not die would enable us to take our time, move at a pace not alien to our makeup. To not age would open possibilities for us to live out, learn, witness and accomplish all manner of things without societal barriers of transition and inevitable physical hindrances.
Immortality would remove from an individual the anxiety of making everything count, abolishing moments in life as periods that can never be repeated, and instead remake them as one chance out of a moebius strip of chances.
But then I wonder as we pass through life not having limitations, would this Utopian concept fall under the weight of humanity's track record for decadence. That in having no need to push ourselves in tandem with an acceptable period of accomplishment, would we grow complacent, overtly selfish and self-indulgent - eventually not fulfilling what we desire and thus not contributing to the advancement of the age.
Could our immortal lives bring us an irreversible distance with civilization, remove our anxiety for failure but increase the emotional stress of not being able to relate with anyone or the world at large.
