Immortality in Sci-World is now on everyone’s wish list.
Radical Life Extension Technologies (RLETs) are now hot topic in Universities, Old Boy Clubs, even mainstream media is openly sharing updates.
As the world moves onto the blockchain, with new and freeing systems of governance emerging, fraud being solved and eliminated, taxes being made wholly redundant, quality of life rising, people are now beginning to wonder… how good can life really get? And how long can I really enjoy it for to the max?
The commercial drive for biological immortality is now picking up steam.
The money flooding into life extension research is now huge.
Death is becoming public enemy Number 1.
In the words of Timothy O’Leary
Death is the final stupidity. Death is the only enemy of life.
Within 5 or 10 years if we gave the emotional, political and economic backing, our scientists would wipe out death.
Are you ready for that?
The interesting thing is that a lot of people want to die. And i you tell them they don’t have to die, they get mad. They say: “you can’t say that, death is what life’s all about!”.
Yeh that’s what they told you in the old Bibles. If you want to die, go ahead. But the option is there if you don’t want to. You don’t have to walk blind-folded and backward into the future that judeo-christian religion gives you of death.
You can live as long as you want, in these bodies.
– Timothy O’Leary
“If the genius of invention were to reveal tomorrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought.”
― Nikola Tesla, 1907
Although technology has created more leisure, it has also created more docility and slavery. The collision between insectoid values and the human forebrain has so far been won by the insects. Every new device remains in the service of the hive. This is so because nothing has been created which puts an end to fear and trembling. Death has not been conquered. When death is conquered (which in my view will happen within fifty years), a tremendous change will take place.
― To Lie is Human, Hyatt, 2004
The conquest of death is the single transcendent triumph which in one sweep will defuse all other human problems. When we attain physical immortality we will automatically have defused such age-old problems as violence – crime – wars – disease – poverty – hunger – competition – alienation – anxiety…
Once we attain immortality everything will be possible. The Upheaval we are launching against death is therefore the most urgent. Until the early 1960s immortality was still a metaphysical concept. Then it began to move to the domain of science.
We must begin to comprehend that living in other worlds and living eternally are no longer metaphysical or theological concepts. People are now actually traveling to other worlds people are now actually striving for physical immortality.
What if I don’t want to live forever? That is your privilege. Immortality must not be an imposition. Nor must death. We want to strive for our individual right to live as long as we want. Ten years one hundred years a million a billion – forever. Or to suspend life for an interval then go on living. We want to win the right to self-determination about life itself. We cannot make decisions about life so long as we do not make decisions about death.
It is precisely this ancient orientation to death which hinders us from launching a global crash movement to overcome mortality. Humans are still too death-oriented too guilt-ridden too submissive and fatalistic to demand immortality. To even hope for it. The Future will look back on our times amazed that humanity was so close to attaining immortality yet having done so little.
― UP-Wingers, Esfandiary, 1973
From ancient times, three powerful forces have converged to shape our view of life in this world. The first such force, largely unique to the human species, is our profound capacity to love one another. The second is death, the greatest enemy of love, the stark reality that our lives and love will end in shipwreck and extinction threatens all that we hold dear. Love and Death are entirely incompatible. But the human brain is resilient, therefore virtually every known culture in the history of mankind has devised strategies to escape the labyrinth of the of the despair of death. Regardless of the ethereal nature of these escape plans, they provided the basis of the third force, hope. And so the hope for immortality was the direct consequence of the titanic collusion of the forces of human love and death.
― Dr. West
The idea of immortality, that like a sea has ebbed and flowed in the human heart, with its countless waves of hope and fear, beating against the shores and rocks of time and fate, was not born of any book, nor of any creed, nor of any religion. It was born of human affection, and it will continue to ebb and flow beneath the mists and clouds of doubt and darkness as long as love kisses the lips of death. It is the rainbow – Hope shining upon the tears of grief.
― The Ghosts, Ingersoll
