    i was thinking if you waited until ur birth to see if another you appeared if then the same thing will happen to the other you and create an army of you's or i would wait until the me is the same age then kill them and pose as the you of that time then repeat the ability of rewinding time

    If I was immortal I would wait an see what new animal comes to the top of the food chain or just search for aliens and discover new world since I cant age while traveling forever in a space ship, they say they could get people to those super world but they would die before they get there that wont be a problem for me and it would be so cool to explore and it might never end, I'll call it my immortal space travels

    The idea of time being a path that could split into branches is best if talking about time travel. Because otherwise you would probably delete yourself from existence.

    The only way I would accept that is if:
    1.- My immortality consisted in Deadpool-like regeneration, because if I was invulnerable people would notice it pretty quickly.
    2.- I could control the rate of my regeneration. Because it's fine if I instantly regenerate from a wound no one saw, but they would notice it if someone saw me take a huge amount of damage but then they see me walking just fine the next day. If someone saw that I was injured, I would regenerate just enough to not die and then heal at a normal rate.
    3.- Have a way to die. Because it would be amazing to experience so many things for so many years, but I know it would eventually become living hell, and having a way to die will become essential.

    How about I never age so that I can't die of old age, but I can be killed with fire or extreme heat yet nothing else. I don't want to live forever. I need to be able to die, to end. Or perhaps I am put back 3,000 years and won't die until I progress 3,000 years and then start to age.

    it all depends on what kind of immortality will be granted.
    if it's just eternal youth but still be able to be murdered like in Highlander, then count me out. 3000 years ago you will be killed by wild animals the first time you attempt to hunt for food.
    if i additionally get invulnerability (can't receive physical damage, as in blunt force or slashes) than i will think REALLLY hard about it. cuz i dont want to spend eternity buried in a cement shoe underwater and constantly drowning!
    if i get additionally superpowers like basic super strength and speed - HELLS YES PLZ!
    there are very many other different types of immortality...

    I would accept, and I would lay dormant until 0AD, at which point I would kill Jesus (which is possible because he never had big boy powers) and I would pretend to be Jesus and claim all the future religion, being constantly living as I’m immortal and have the worlds literal true religion based around me. I would then be ruler of the world and do whatever I want including stay up past my bedtime to play fortnite (lol jk I’d kill a few thousand people idk)

      @Anonymous i wouldnt affect history at all untill 1612, where i would force the king of Poland to send his son to Russia immediatly after the capture of Moscow which would allow us to control Russia.(idc how i would force him to do it, either by bribing him or threatening to kill his whole family, as long as he does it.) After 4hag i would abolish the king and the ideology and instead implement an absolute monarchy, this would give us full control over the center of the earth(east europe, west asia). Then become the king and lead the Winged hussars to global domination muahahahaha

      *eu4 intinsifies*
      (But seriously who would be stupid enough to try to fight against us if that happened. Entire armies already fled the battlefield when thw winged hussars were seen in the area even without my changes, so with thwm no one would stand against us muahahaha:P)

    Well, with this immortality. I have several mobiles. I can generate parts of my body or all. I have youth of the age of 23. I have muscle mass that is twice as strong as a normal human. Perfect shape. I can still have children.
    During my time on the planet. I will gain a unlimited amount of information to create a new world. A empire for the purpose of human evolution. I will have 13 children. First generation can live only 3000 years, but lifespan is cut 5% of each new generation. Then will stop aging at 23 but becomes human after 3000 years then will continue to age as a human again. The only way to have the same immortality of me is for my children is to drink the pure blood of immortality.
    The humans will learn about my immortal gene and gain immortality in 6000 years. Humans population will be 11 billion by 4500 then 2 billion by 4600 on the planet earth. Humans will travel the stars and other planets by 4596.
