To humans, tardigrades are "cool", we can stretch out our lifespan if we want to.
That is something they strive for.
To them a life of 90 years long is not long enough,
I am quite content with my lifespan of 2 years.
I don't need to stretch it out, I would if I have to.
Then I enter a dormant state, which is called cryptobiosis.
When I enter this state,
I am neither dead nor alive.
I am just there,
not really being aware of it all.
This could take some years,
maybe 20 if my habitat
continues to be inhabitable.
