ABSTRACT
Immortality is the indefinite continuation ofa person’s existence, even after death. In commonparlance, immortality is virtually indistinguishablefrom afterlife, but philosophically speaking, theyare not identical. Afterlife is the continuation ofexistence after death, regardless of whether ornot that continuation is indefinite. Immortalityimplies a never-ending existence, regardless ofwhether or not the body dies (as a matter of fact,some hypothetical medical technologies offerthe prospect of a bodily immortality, but not anafterlife).
