Want to become Immortal? You’re in luck because scientists say in about 20
years we will have the technology to not only prolong life far beyond what it is today, possibly allow human beings to live forever!
How can this be done? Here are 5 of the methods we may use in the future to
1. Nano technologies that can replace our vital organs: There are already ways
scientists can create artificial pancreases so this isn’t as crazy as it sounds.
It won’t be long before this technology is perfected. This means that we will
get to replace any organ in our body with a new one. So if your heart is failing,
you can go to the doctor and order a new one! It’s like replaces old parts with
new ones. We will get to do this over and over again until technology is
advanced enough so that our actual organs can last forever.
2. Neural implants : These little chip-like things that can
attach directly onto someone’s brain. They can help
stimulate the brain for people who have had strokes or
head injuries. They can also ease the effects of
Parkinson’s disease and depression. In addition, they can
be used as a pathway from brain to computer. In the
future you will be able to control machines with your
mind. Perhaps you could even control other people! This
technology will most likely ensure that our brains will
never degenerate and our memory will never delete or
get destroyed. Any brain damage will be automatically repaired(or transferred
into a machine).
3. Nano bots that replace blood cells: These will be used as a supplement for
our natural blood cells and they will be thousands of times more effective. For
example, oxygen will be supplied much more effectively and you will most
likely be able to run at a full sprint for 15 minutes and stay under water for
hours without a breath. Also, they will allow healing and repair to be nearly
instant and will ensure that the cells in our body never decay, allowing us to
never age or maybe we could even grow younger instead of older! Sounds
pretty cool huh?
4. Cyborg technology: This is pretty self explanatory. In the future instead of
replacing body parts with biological copies, we may be able to replace them
with mechanical copies. We will then become super human biological cyborgs.
We will live forever and be nearly invincible.
5. Cryonics: Cryonics is a technology that uses vitrification instead of freezing
for the preservation of humans and animals. The idea is you can have yourself
preserved until medical technology is available to heal you. So even if you die,
you can be restored at a later date. Currently, around 200 people have had this
procedure since 1962. In the United States, only people who are pronounced
clinically dead can have cryonics performed. The only problem, the technology
does not yet exist to bring these people back to life, without killing them.
I recently watched the movie titled (Zardoz) and found out it was an interesting move talking on immortality. In the movie, the humans were begging to die!
Would life really get that interesting that we don’t want to die?

Are you sure you don’t want to die? Even if you could live forever, are you
really sure you would want to?
