What do you think this could mean for humans? That perhaps, live can last forever?

It means that a new virophage was discovered in Antartica, and it has some effects on other virus as well as the hosts of those virus.

Pretty much means nothing to humans or to the idea that we can live forever (if that was what you were trying to get at, your sentence didn't make much sense).

This virus attacks cells that are infected with another virus....

Since when is aging a virus?

Fair enough, aging is not a virus.

But what about this find?
