Survive as what, though? And in what condition? I know from personal experience that 
one does not always experience oneself in that world-branch in which one is in tip-top 

Reminds me of the ancient Greek myth of the goddess whose mortal lover was granted 
immortality at her request by Zeus, but not eternal youth, because it didn't occur to 
the goddess to ask Zeus to grant her lover that too. So the lover never died, but grew 
ever older, more wrinkled & bent, till he became a grasshopper.
