After having refuted the argument that immortal people would have no motivation to act in the immediate present, Mr. Stolyarov turns the entire motivation argument around and explains why there is a greatly diminished motivation to act for human beings who believe their lifespans to have an upper limit and no recourse for lifting that limit. After all, why act if all the fruits of one's labor cannot be enjoyed by one after one is dead? Most people today, in fact, are motivated to act because they consider themselves to have a form of immortality - an afterlife.
In the background of the latter part of this video, you will be able to hear Mr. Stolyarov's original musical composition, Man's Struggle Against Death, Op. 57. You can find out about this work and download it for free here: http://progressofliberty.today.com/20...
