Would you choose to live forever if you could? There are plenty of people out there who would, and many rich individuals are investing large chunks of their cash on new technologies that could help their name and memory live on well after they do.
If there is anything that is going to help us extend our lifespans and, hopefully, live forever, then it is going to be technology. In fact, many tech experts are sure that they will have the key to eternal life before long. Here are some tech that is being explored in this area.
The technology to be able to cryogenically freeze people has been around for a few years now. After a person has died, their body is frozen using liquid nitrogen. This preserves the body indefinitely. The thinking behind this is that, in the future, the technology will be developed enabling us to ‘defrost’ the individual and bring them back to life. It is also thought that the bodies will be thawed out at a time in the future when cancers and other currently incurable diseases and health conditions will be treatable.
Our genes have a lot to answer for as it is largely up to them as to the age that we die. But there are currently many studies into gene therapies. At this moment in time, these have only been carried on on mice, but they show that removing the genes that affect aging can help double the lifespan of the mice. Many people now hope that this tech can be used in humans as well.
Have you ever heard of mind uploading? This article is a great read that explains the ins and outs of this developing technology. It’s believed that we will soon be able to “upload” all the information in someone’s brain and then use this to make a copy of that person. This research is still in its infancy, but who knows how successful it will be in the future.
For decades now, we have been replacing lost limbs with artificial ones. Thanks to these, amputees are now able to walk and regain use of their arms. Well, it is now thought that this technology can be developed further so that we will be able to create artificial organs. So, rather than dying of liver disease or dying while waiting for a transplant, a patient will be able to simply have an artificial organ placed inside them.
Lots of scientists believe that removing all the toxins from the body can help to dramatically slow down the aging process. Because of this, there are now a lot of studies and research programs looking into rejuvenating technologies. Eventually, the experts hope that these technologies can help people act and look younger than what they really are. And this can keep them healthier for longer.
So, do you think you are ready to live forever? You might be able to soon!
