Human Beings to “Live Forever” in 30 Years With Immortality New Plastic Surgery

Human beings to ‘live FOREVER in 30 years’ with immortality ‘new plastic surgery’

IMMORTALITY is on the horizon according to leading transhumanists, who believe in the future people will be able to live forever.

Biological immortality — or, more accurately, never growing old — has been studied by scientists who think it could be achieved with advanced genetic engineering.

But the technology to live forever will be incredibly expensive once it is available.

Transhumanist and futurist Dr Ian Pearson predicted “the rich and famous” will be getting the treatment by the 2050s — similar to how the stars have access to plastic surgery today.

NEVER GROW OLD: Humans could change nature (Pic: DS)

“There always has been, but the difference now is tech is improving so quickly, lots of people believe they can actually do it.

“No one wants to live forever at 95 years old, but if you could rejuvenate the body to 29 or 30, you might want to do that.”

Dr Pearson said celebrities and millionaires like the Kardashians would have first dibs on the technology for eternal youth — with people on normal incomes having to grow old and die naturally.

It is believed humans grow old due to an inefficiency in the way our cells replicate.

Bits off the end of our DNA are lost every time it replicates.

The protective “junk code” at the end of DNA eventually runs out, leaving older people more vulnerable to cancer mutations.

The junk code is known as “telomeres” and the oldest animals on earth naturally have longer ones.

American lobsters can live for more than 100 years with no sign of ageing and have a telomere-lengething enzyme called telomerase in every cell.

But in a review published in Rejuvenation Research, “Telomeres and Telomerase: A Modern Fountain of Youth?”, researchers found the anti-aging therapy caused an increase in cancer rates in mice.

But with constant breakthroughs in biology and the first ever genetically-modified babies born this year, many futurists believe the technology is within grasp this lifetime.

Another theory is that humans will have “electronic immortality” by fusing their consciousness to a robot.

“By 2060, people like you or I will be able to buy it, and by 2070 people in poor countries on modest incomes will be able to buy it”, Dr Pearson told the Sun.

“You wouldn’t want to live in a world where there are millions of Kardashians walking around, where they can afford to do it and nobody else can.

“Everyone will have a chance to have immortality, a sort of electronic immortality.

“After 10, 15, 20 years, the price comes down to hundreds of pounds, rather than millions. It could be provided as part of the NHS.

“You might be able to buy premium offerings on a private subscription, or you might get a basic presence on a network and be allowed to use an android body.”

But with an exploding population, other futurists worry about the ethics of making humanity immortal.

Though others pointed out if you could stay young forever, humans might put-off having their first child until they were 200 years old or more.

Ray Kurzweil – Physical Immortality

Ray Kurzweil:

Kurzweil is one of the world’s leading minds on artificial intelligence, technology and futurism. He is the author of five national best-selling books, including “The Singularity is Near” and “How to Create a Mind.” Raymond “Ray” Kurzweil is an American author, computer scientist, inventor and futurist. Aside from futurology, he is involved in fields such as optical character recognition (OCR), text-to-speech synthesis, speech recognition technology, and electronic keyboard instruments. He has written books on health, artificial intelligence (AI), transhumanism, the technological singularity, and futurism. Kurzweil is a public advocate for the futurist and transhumanist movements, and gives public talks to share his optimistic outlook on life extension technologies and the future of nanotechnology, robotics, and biotechnology.

Kurzweil admits that he cared little for his health until age 35, when he was found to suffer from a glucose intolerance, an early form of type II diabetes (a major risk factor for heart disease). Kurzweil then found a doctor (Terry Grossman, M.D.) who shares his non-conventional beliefs to develop an extreme regimen involving hundreds of pills, chemical intravenous treatments, red wine, and various other methods to attempt to live longer. Kurzweil was ingesting “250 supplements, eight to 10 glasses of alkaline water and 10 cups of green tea” every day and drinking several glasses of red wine a week in an effort to “reprogram” his biochemistry.

Lately, he has cut down the number of supplement pills to 90. ——-
