The Ever-growing Reality That we Might be Able to Live Forever
In particular, if you’re a millennial — i.e., if you’re 40 or under — you have a good chance of staying young and healthy forever. Experts and futurists call it longevity science. What once was science fiction, now looks more like our near future.
Just don’t call it immortality. The leading minds in the field of life-extension medicine and biotechnology hate that term. They’re not chasing immortality. That’s impossible. Immortality is the province of gods and monsters, not us mere mortals.
Instead, researchers are busy inventing and innovating new medical therapies that will allow us to stay young and healthy for possibly thousands of years. In fact, last year, a paper published in Nature promised that there may be no natural limit for a human lifespan.
