If Life Is A Game, Do Immortals Win?

What if life is really a training exercise for higher abilities, and in order to win or graduate, you have to reach a certain level? What if Jesus and the few other humans of legend who could do things similar to what he was capable of had all reached this level? What if when you die, you have to start over?

If someone achieved immortality, they could keep playing indefinitely, until they finally figured out how to win. They wouldn't have to start over and begin completely anew. They could build upon what they already know.

I guess one hitch exists where an immortal could be so lost that the only way to get back on the right track would be to restart, and to do so death would become necessary. But maybe a true immortal would be capable of dying through sheer force of will. It wouldn't be much fun to be immortal against your own wishes.
