Consider if I removed human death from earth, but still people will get older. If we find a way to stop human death, we could face a lot of problems such as increased crime (since no one can die), population issues, food problems, etc.

I removed only human death from the earth and now I want to make earth more holy.

What are the necessary rules/action that should be taken to achieve this?


Since we are removing only human death from earth people still people will get hungry, wound, pain. Except human death everything else is same I.e heart attack, cancer everything is same as now. So degree of inconvenience, pain will increase but no death for human. In that case how can we act effectively to decrease the inconvenience, pain that caused by immorality.

Holy - here I'm referring it as a less crime, less inconvenience world.

In short, we have to bring back life balance like the current situation. Only change is there will be no human death.

    $\begingroup$ 1) You need to clarify. Is death impossible, i.e., cut off head it regrows, or simply no death by old age, or no death by natural causes, i.e., no more death from heart attacks, cancer, etc. 2) What do you mean by holiness? Define it for the question. $\endgroup$ – Gary Walker Dec 19 '15 at 20:53

    $\begingroup$ @celtschk not really, though you wouldn't die, you would still lose body mass and be in pain from the hunger. It would be a unending torture that you couldn't be released from. There are also diseases and weaknesses that come with old age, which would build up making you wish you were dead. $\endgroup$ – Necessity Dec 20 '15 at 3:50

    $\begingroup$ If you want more help you might consider posting in the sandbox in meta or posting another question here about "What would be the physical consequences of a world without death?" with most of the information from here. As stands, I think there are too many ways of implementing a world without death. So answers may come from different assumptions. $\endgroup$ – Brythan Dec 20 '15 at 7:16

I'm not at all certain what you mean by "holiness", or how you would quantify it, but the most obvious action is to suppress the production of sex hormones, particularly testosterone. This will have two effects. First, it will cut down the birth rate enormously, and we need that to avoid winding up standing cheek to cheek over the entire globe as we starve. Second, it will be make everybody much less aggressive, and I assume you associate that with being holy.
