For myself I couldn't imagine choosing immortality. Maybe it's because I am a depressed person whose ability to experience joy is very diminished. I'm not sure that if technology were so advanced that I could be "fixed", if that would change my aversion to the thought of life going on and on. In the book, when people get tired of living, some choose euthanasia, while others choose to be put into storage and woken up when certain conditions are met, such as their society sublimating, or when some other personal event occurs. I don't know if I'd want that "wait and see" option, instead of finding out with lies beyond death, even if it is oblivion. It all feels like hubris to me... perversely turning away from what we were all destined for.
On the weekend I resurrected my old raspberry pi and got the pi-hole ad blocker working on it. Also was successful writing a python program to count letter frequencies in Wordle. Really rudimentary stuff but it felt good to have a little success as a perpetual sucky noob at programming. Think next weekend gonna check out python data visualization to hopefully make some useless graphs. If I lived thousands of years like those sentient ships I would still probably be doing neophyte computer stuff and writing shitty blogs.
