Ethics and Immortality

Title of a 2054 book released by Zoran Cephalus; existentialist philosopher and radical thinker who pioneered the school of Eternal Philosophy.

Eternity.8 has had profound implications for our understanding of the world. Freeing humanity from the bonds of mortality — removing the expiry date that had both terrified and inspired us – has meant that our mortality-based system of ethics, once considered immutable, was revealed to be contingent upon negative freedoms.

Once Eternity.8 freed humanity from death, other negative freedoms – freedom from poverty, from pain, from suffering – began to topple from their vaulted place within our consciousness, replaced by the positive freedoms that Eternalists yearned for – the freedom to pleasure, to unlimited self-expression, to self-autonomy.

Several Eternalist societies, commonly known as Freethought Hubs, have evolved from this desire to experience True Freedom, and are characterised by a flowering of self-expression that has been rather unkindly called Emergent Sexual Deviance.

Pro-death activists have viewed the evolution of this new system of ethics with deep suspicion, championing death-based Christian ideals in response.
