Or how different your life would be between playing it safe and going out all wild. The end result being that you make multiple copies of yourself, that if their life turns out succesful you plan on recombining again into yourself into the future. Now imagen you choose a particulairy career and are offered to join up with a professor in that field, would you do it?
A similar story ones happens in warhammer where a strong warrior is allowed to soul bond with the emperor becoming one single being, however this is like a single photon being added to the sun. It would be suicide that said, look at pictures from when you where a child, what happenend to the kid in a way it died to make place for you, sure it is still in their somewhere but not completly and now you are more. To be alife means you change and inmortallity will change people a lot.
Onces we have inmortality the next question will probably be how much do we allow ourself to change. Because eventually we become something unrecognisable, would a cave men recognize us as human dressed in textiles on our computers fridges filled knowing what we know?
No offense, but I am having a hard time understanding your perception on LCL. Are you trying to say that because Evangelion is a timeline that repeats itself, when humanity accepts instrumentation, they experience or perceive infinite timelines of themselves simultaneously?
