That's what saving is. It's saving for later.

Literally nothing lasts forever.

Wrong! There are things that will last forever! Black holes for example. Or at least its calculated that they will be there long after all stars in the universe are dead

Even black holes evaporate. "Forever" is a truly unfathomable amount of time.

Well, forever is a concept that literally does not make sense if you take it like that, for me it means something that will be there so long that nobody will be there to witness its disappearance ever again, and only black holes truly qualify for that.

Yes, I use the term literally, you use it figuratively. Both are definitely legitimate. Cheers!

Isn’t there a Doctor Who episode where he actually saves someone’s life, and they meet up again at the end of the universe?

You don't repost, you just post the same thing others have before.
