by asking to one of the beasts:

"If you were the other beast, what would you answer if I asked you 'Are you
in front of the longevity gateway?' "

Then you'll know which door to choose ;-)

PS: sorry for my english, it's not perfect ...

Make me think of;

You walk down a staircase and come to a hallway. There are two beasts, each
guarding one entrance. You are told;
1. You have to pass through one of the entrances
2. Beyond one entrance is a great treasure and longevity, and dismay,
suffering and death behind the other.
3. One of the beasts always tells the truth, the other always tells a lie,
you are not told which one does what.
4. You are allowed to ask ONE question to either of the beastes before
your choice.

What question should you ask, to ensure you choosing the right entrance?
