  1. 1. Changes of Character  Williams: If our character changes in the future, it’s unclear why our present selves would be attracted to the projects of this future self  Fischer: What matters is the way that our character changes
  2. 2. Summing Up  Immortality need not consist of a single pleasurable activity to be attractive.  Immortality need not consist solely of pleasurable activities to be attractive.  The standards for immortality should match those for a mortal existence.  An immortal life consisting only of self-exhausting pleasures would be boring—but there’s no reason to think a life of repeatable pleasures, appropriately spaced (and perhaps combined with spiritual and religious experiences) could not give rise to positive categorical desires even in an immortal life.
