What Is Immortality?
Immortality is simply the absence of the aging process in a biological being. In most cases, this only begins once said being has matured to adulthood. In the world of the supernatural, there are a number of known Immortal beings that don’t age and live forever. These include some superhumans, vampires, demi-demons, mermaids, demigods, and various creatures with some level of higher dimensional lineage. In the future, all humankind will become Immortal courtesy of technological advancements! Unfortunately, Immortality doesn’t mean complete invulnerability from death. Depending on the variety of Immortal they might be killed by any normal means, or only in a certain set of limited scenarios. Often complete destruction of the body via fire or beheading guarantee death for most Immortals! In this way, they are mortal at heart.
The Death Of An Immortal
Immortal beings often have advanced healing and extra immunity to deadly diseases. Even the lowest level Immortals have cells that don’t degrade as easily as mortals. It is said they can never acquire conditions like Cancer. The immortal cells of Cancer are overwhelmed by an entire body of healthy immortal cells. Despite this eventually, the odds dictate that an Immortal will fall prey to an accident so destructive it will be beyond any means of repair. Even if that never happened they would meet their maker someday when their atomic structures eventually come unglued in the final trillions of years the Universe experiences its own swan song. Although the Macroverse and this Omniverse may live on forever without end, this particular Parallel Universe will someday cease existing unless some awesome higher dimensional power intervenes! Of course, they may find a way to beat this through future technology or even magic.
What Does It Mean To Be Amortal?
Amortality refers to not only being Immortal but also having the inability to die. Generally, these are beings never born into the physical Universe and therefore were technically never alive, to begin with. Although, there have been rumors over the centuries of a race of Amortals born into this world who walks among us! Unfortunately for Amortals their status doesn’t grant them invincibility. They may be weakened, badly injured, or bested in a fight by certain limited means. Despite that, they still can’t be technically killed by any means. This even includes beheading or complete incineration of their physical bodies! If the Universe came to an end they would theoretically just float about the dark five dimensional void of nothingness for all eternity! Most of the known Amortals are enchanted entities from higher dimensions of reality or special parallel dimensions. These amazing amortals include Angels, Demons, Jinn, and Poltergeists along with virtually all Gods and Goddesses.
The Granting And Taking Away Of Amortality
There are isolated circumstances where these metaphysical energy entities may take a pure physical form, on purpose, or against their will, and in essence downgrade to Immortal status. A state where their spiritual form is solidified in their physical body. If extinguished they would be blinked from existence without any higher dimensional soul to fall back on. Some of these supernatural beings also possess the power to bestow Amortal status on anyone they so choose. Certainly, Genies, aka caged Jinn, are able to grant wishes of amortality, and even invincibility! Selling one’s soul to the Devil, or a demon, can also imbue one with amortal powers. Some ultra powerful human practitioners of magic may give themselves, or others, immortality along with amortality to an extent!
Ultimately All Humans Are Technically Amortal!
As human beings, we have an armada of higher dimensional souls multiplied into parallel realities in each plane of existence. This is the ultimate consciousness back-up that guarantees we will have a never ending amortal existence. We may die here but our souls live onward in the great beyond! Various other higher dimensional entities such as Angels, Demons, and Nature Deities don’t have this same exponential level of duplication. Outside of this reality, their amortality may then technically be immortality as eternal extinguishment is a possibility!
