Death is quite tragic, quite an unfortunate consequence that comes with the fragile circumstance we call "life."

But that may change soon. With the help of multiple bright minds working on projects, it's only a matter of time before the key to immortality is unlocked, and the tragic permanence we call death is put to an end. By 2045, or even earlier, we as a civilization are expected to reach the point of technological singularity - where revolutionary advances in tech become exponential. This gives way to the creation of artificial intelligence, cybernetics, genetic augmentations, and much more developments that allow us to achieve immortality - or at least extend our lifespans.

All hail the Transhumanist Initiative!

The tragic effect of death was eliminated by this fellow called Jesus almost 2000 years ago. I have no desire to be inside of a computer, which by the way won’t last forever.

This ultimate evolution of the human body is not just restricted to AI, cybernetics, or computers. There's also the route of genetic enhancement, as well as designer babies.

AI will already be advanced enough to keep up continual upgrades and maintenance.

is there a question?
life expectancy has increased
so much since antibiotics and
advanced surgical techniques.

something else might drive
this trend into the realm of
relative immortality.

Thanks for the tip, Nostradamus Jr. Now I can begin my day.

Not sure our natural resources sustaining life will last that long so for those (and zillions of others) wanting to live ever longer lives, better pin your hopes -and put your money on - NASA.
