As far as I'm concerned, I did a test some time ago and will come into limbo. I don't know about Your way of live, whether You behave Yourself or not, but, well I'd welcome You in limbo, of course. Most of our fellow humans, methinks, wouldn't make it into the next intelligent species. But, I dunno if I for myself could do it.
If You read up on Greek tragedy, or the myths about Tantalus, You would know that there's no way to cheat death - or Death, that is. But, "when bargaining with her, every year can make a difference."
