Can we live for ever?

Quote:We live in an amazing time: we're starting to think of "ageing" not as a fact of life, but a disease that can be treated and possibly prevented, or at least put off for a very long time. Our knowledge of what causes us to age – and what allows some animals to live longer than others – is expanding rapidly. And though we haven't quite worked out all the details, the clues we are gathering about DNA damage, the balance of ageing, metabolism and reproductive fitness, plus the genes that regulate this, are filling out a bigger picture, potentially leading to drug treatments. But the real question is not how we're going to live longer but how we are going to live well longer. And since many diseases, such as diabetes and cancer, are diseases of ageing, treating ageing itself could be the key.

Thoughts? ...

Regarding about this,
I remembered I ever watched a Documentary Movie on Discovery Channel about this.
The Movie is very Interesting.

You can Search on Youtube "Curiosity Discovery Can You Live Forever"

I guess it depends on how fast and if technology can evolve to mimic that of the heart and other fundemental body parts which are replaced with man made parts. Unfortunately, people seem to forget that 100 years is not that long and I do have my doubts if that'll ever be around before we go - I can safely assume that no one will live forever though, even if they were around for thousands of years. Eventually someone is going to start a war or somehow kill them - they aren't protected from that.

We are only one step away from living forever, at this point we can grow from ears, livers and even foods in petry dishes.
The only thing stopping us from living forever is our biological clock which basically means that our cells stop reproducing at a point in our lifes and from than on we just getting older and start slowly to decay...
There have been alot of studyes made on people and animals trying to increase our life expectancy, basically their conclusion is that the slower an organism grows the longer it will take to reach the biological clock peak after which it starts getting older.
If you are in ur 20's or 30's you probably remember when u were a teen that some teen girls were werry "evolved" for their age (u get the point) and there were the other skinny girls that u didnt know if they were a boy or girl :)
Take alook at them when they are in their mid 20's or early 30's and u will see that the "evolved" girls look much older than their actual age, this is the eact opposite for the other girls.


The question is not if we can live forever but if we should...

I know there are some (the rich) that now pay to keep their bodies frozen.
This is done with the hope some day they will be brought back to life.

Pretty crazy really!

I wish they found out way to do it, dying doesn't seem like a good idea to me

Lol, it reminds me of this guy I recall reading: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-...ality.html

He's taking 150 vitamins a day and planning to become immortal - he's the Google engineering director. Interesting, especially considering he's now 63.

I don't think living forever is good. Maybe if everyone is living forever that is okay, but imagine you live forever, and from time to time you loose someone, because they don't live forever. And think about old people. Like they are at the age of 80 when they find out a magic pill that stops aging, then they would have to live in a 80 years old body :S
