I was feeling inspired recently about how people who live physical immortality are a people who know no tragedy. In the story of the human race, tragedy is a constantly recurring theme. Aristotle explored it thoroughly in his Poetics, along with the another very common theme, comedy.
I moved to Scottsdale, AZ, to be in and among the People Unlimited Community. In 2 1/2 years, I have only missed a handful of events. What I have felt is an inspiration, joy, connection, and a free-flowing moving of energy. I have felt this before. But consistently? No, this is a special place. I have been a part of independent self-growth communities that surge and then fade over time, as egos do battle, and burdens overtake inspiration. But here, I have seen Jim Strole, Bernadeane, and the community move through many challenges with joy. There is a theme of deep connection, and deep intimacy, growing deeper over time. When you have that, why would you even want to die?
On the facebook group, I recently posted this video. It begins with a quote from Alan Harrington:
"Death has become an imposition on the human race and is no longer acceptable".
Take 3 minutes and watch it. This is why I am here. This is why I must be around people who feel this way about life.
Joy is a recurring theme of physical immortality. Joy and inspiration.
Also, comedy! And giving to others.
Recently the charitable wing of People Unlimited, People Unlimited Charities, held a fundraiser event called Womanless Beauty Pageant. Its the 4th annual one, and it was hilarious. To be a guy and put on a show like this for a couple of hundred people really takes some balls. This was not a "drag" show. This was for fun. This was to entertain, for guys to step out of the box and explore full out human expression, and it all went to charity.

Here is a clip:
This journey keeps getting better, it's a new model for living. Fun, connection, freedom, and intimacy. Self-selected, and coming together on regularly to face challenges together and spark the body toward limitless self-growth and evolution. Only when growth stops does aging begin. The human body never needs to age. It just needs the right environment. Its a joy to be here.
