Immortality, Part 1

I've been thinking a lot about mortality. Perhaps it's because I have kids now. Or perhaps it's because I'm turning 30 next month.

Immortality, in the sense of immortal fame, is hard to come by. Regardless of one's present fame, a few generations generally suffices to erase one's memory.

The question is, what kind of greatness is best suited to bringing immortality? Politics? Science? Art? Business? Entertainment? Sports?

Ponder for a bit, and I'll be back with my thoughts.

I have to go with Woody Allen on this one: "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying."
