Sigmund Freud and Michel Foucault believed Death and Sex are deeply intertwined - the carnal act is infused with the death instinct — this is signified in the French idiom la petit mort, “mini-death.”
With death eliminated, will the self-forgetfulness we presently enjoy in cathartic climax… just seem silly?
Will removing our fear of death - wipe out our need for distraction, via libido?
Or will we be… hornier than ever - because we’re not stressed out about the Grim Reaper?
Will romantic relationships increase, or decrease - because we might be more relaxed?
Or… is the notion that Immortality will eliminate stress… incorrect?
Will anxiety remain at today’s levels?
