Forever Young

Updated: Aug 12, 2021

Forever young, I wanna be forever young, Do you really want to live forever? Forever and ever, Forever young…Hoping for the best but expecting the worst …Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip…I wanna be forever young…Do you really want to live forever? Forever, forever young…

As I contemplate my mortality in this iconic decade, I cannot help but face the inevitable…as I leave my footprints on the sands of time…I truly want to live forever young in the memories of my loved ones.

As I turn another year older, my potential leading to my mortality seems more real than ever. The 20s were a breeze, the 30s were rocking, 40s was been there done that … and 50s is planning the after-life!


A crisis faced by our species as a whole if anything has made us realise one thing…that in most times of uncertainty one thing that is certain…is death.

In theosophy and anthroposophy, the Akashic records is a compendium of all universal events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future in terms of all entities and life forms, not just human. They are believed by theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the mental plane. It is believed all thoughts, words, intent etc. generates its own unique “frequency or vibration” which is stored in the Akashic Records.

AI or artificial intelligence is the closest we have come to Akashic records on the human realm. It will enable us to encode an endless stream of data which can be accessed by ones we live behind someday.

It’s quite clear from the work of many experts in the fields of robotics and AI that it’s only a matter of time until the reality of Black Mirror’s digital afterlife becomes not just an option but also the norm all across the world. That gives you two options: will you carry on living the way you do now with no regard for what might happen to your digital rendition, or will you better prepare for your death by releasing as many bits and pieces of yourself — in the form of photos, messages, and other information — as possible online?
