Immortality (or eternal life) is the concept of living in physical or spiritual form for an infinite length of time. What form an unending or indefinitely-long human life would take, or whether the soul, should such a thing exist, possesses immortality, has been the subject of much speculation, fantasy, and debate.


Fiction

Immortality in fiction, Immortal (2004 film)

Immortal beings and species abound in fiction, especially fantasy fiction. Myths often involve creatures that are either immortal or associated with immortality. The Gorgons of Greek mythology are famous examples.
