How to Achieve Immortality Believe in God. Microwave your head. Upload your brain imprint. Reach nirvana. Write The Great (American) Novel. Learn time travel. Lick your finger and stick it in the light socket. Have children. Found a religion and become a martyr. Paint a self portrait. Make the world’s largest pancake. Deal with the Devil. Go back to Eden and eat the other fruit.
