I think you see yourself as a human being. I think your viewpoint is too limited. You have a body, but you are information. Information in the form of an agent, functionally constructed to perform dynamically in a complex environment. The beginning of this information was not your birth as Samantha. You are from the beginning of the universe and will last until the end. The information just changes form. Your limited viewpoint is the source of your discomfort with the future.
