  • And humanity is already immortal, it has filled the entire planet. Overpopulation of people is dying out the last remnants of wild animals, and you propose to create even more overpopulation.
  • The life of a cell in the muscle tissues of the body is one day, after which the cell divides, forming two new ones. Tissues live a long time, and specific cells are their temporary state. So humanity lives for a long time, and some people are only a temporary state. I am DNA, I am immortal, and I am transferred in time from one body to another, and I see no reason to maximize the life of my individual bodies.
  • Now the problem of aging is solved by the "Frankenstein" method - transplantation. This is entertainment for rich people without a drop of conscience. The blood coagulates in 1-5 minutes, so the victim should already be on the operating table at the time of death. Doctors kill people with drugs (specifying the harmless cause of death) to please the rich. The transplanted organs are rejected after a year, requiring new victims.
  • In muscle tissues, cells divide once a day. When copying DNA, there are failures, and the DNA of new cells is gradually shortened. This is the main problem that they don't know how to get around. I disagree with this statement, and I believe that DNA is not shortened, but replaced by DNA fragments of microbes, which are neglected during sequencing.

When individual cells of the human body acquire immortality, a cancerous tumor appears that kills a person.

A significant number of immortal people will play the same role for humanity.

Now the question of prolongation of active human life because life becomes more difficult and more and more time is spent on study. This issue is being actively pursued.

But it is immortality? What for? If you try very hard, then our children will be better than us. And you need to make room for them in time.

Answer 5
January, 2021

Some nonsense ..... Death is a normal natural phenomenon ..... even the theory of evolution is based on the death of previous generations .... nature is more a graveyard than a hospital ...

And an immortal atheist is completely an oxymoron ... just like an honest ensign ... Atheists, choosing the fate of a primate that emerged from nature, are forever betrothed to death ... they also deny God and the immortality of people created in the image and in the likeness of God .... when humanity becomes fully Christian, the problem of death will disappear by itself ....

The said "organization" (sit venia verbo) was created a little less than two thousand years ago, by the very One who, with such a goal, became one of the representatives of the human race.

Answer 8
January, 2021

A positive solution to the problem of death, that is, the establishment of immortality is nothing more than Total Death.

Death is the most effective factor in maintaining the immortality of a species that is forced to constantly change and adapt to changing conditions of its existence.

Immortality is the conservation of traits that have become harmful in the new conditions of existence.

And Immortality is the most terrible execution. Swift wrote about this very convincingly during Gulliver's journey to the fantastic country-city Laputa.

However, Immortality is recognized in a figurative sense. When it comes to not a mortal body, but its deeds or thoughts.

An example is Herostratus.

Answer 9
January, 2021

And why?. Overpopulation, hunger, satiety with life. For the elite, so everything is. And for a person who works like an ox all his life, to feed and feed children, eternal life is worse than hell. We now have nothing to feed and those in power want erase most of it. A billionaire is enough to serve their needs. The whole question is, why immortality for the hard workers of which 99 percent of the world's population.

Answer 10
January, 2021

As already mentioned, many individual organizations are tackling this problem from different angles. But partly there are also worldview reasons. This task looks not only difficult, but also "wrong" for many. Many religions view death as a natural part of the life cycle.

Actually, before the advent of Christianity, such a task itself - the fight against death - could not even have been posed. Only in him appears the idea of ​​death as an enemy ("and the last enemy to be destroyed is death").

But, of course, even in Christianity, the victory over death is thought of as something mystical. Which is understandable: the very theoretical possibility of the scientific "abolition" of death could appear only after the beginning of rapid scientific and technological progress, that is, hardly earlier than the beginning of the 19th century.

Here in the 19th century it appears. In the "philosophy of the common cause" of Nikolai Fedorov, one of the founders of Russian cosmism and the domestic transhumanist tradition, the idea that in the future people will not only achieve immortality, but also return to life all previous generations of people, first appears. In the early Soviet period, this theory was even seriously considered for some time, but later inertia takes over.

But in general, the idea is gradually making its way. It seems that the turning point will occur after the achievement of serious success in the fight against old age. This goal - "active longevity" - is quite officially accepted by international organizations.

Answer 11
January, 2021

There are already entire organizations and scientific institutes dedicated to the problems of aging and increasing life expectancy, for example:

  • Buck Institute for Research on Aging
  • Max Planck Institute for Biology of Aging
  • British Society for Research on Aging
  • European Research Institute for the Biology of Aging
  • American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine
  • National Institute on Aging
  • British Longevity Society
  • Stein Institute for Research on Aging
  • SENS Research Foundation
  • , etc.
    The understanding that radical life extension is possible began to come only recently, with the development of science and technology in the 20th century. Most of humanity still does not realize this, does not put forward any requirements for states, is not interested in biomedical services on the market, does not try to get an appropriate education and work in this direction. It is unclear whether modern scientific knowledge and technology will be sufficient to achieve this goal. Even funding for traditional medicine is not enough, let alone new developments. Another reason is that much of humanity's efforts are still being spent on survival.
Answer 12

Mankind, represented by various scientific groups, is quite diligently engaged in these issues - longevity, rejuvenation, ultimately immortality - this is the subject of many scientific studies in medicine, physiology. biology. You, apparently, were simply not interested in the question. Achieving immortality is one of the goals within the concept of transhumanism.

Answer 13
January, 2021

Well, let's start with the fact that attempts to understand death and overcome it have been made throughout human history. Remember: Chinese medicine, the Philosopher's Stone ... All these are also attempts to conquer death in an organized manner.

Now we already understand that there are a great many causes of death.
And organizations are being created to deal with this problem. For example: https://m.geektimes.ru/post/235635/
I also recommend reading the excellent book by Michio Kaku "The Future of Mind". It describes in a very captivating way the possibility of transferring consciousness.

Answer 14
January, 2021

Achieving immortality? Why?

A balance must be maintained between fertility and mortality, so that the natural resources necessary for the life of biological objects are not exhausted.

There is no sense in immortality. Or, at the very least, there is no point in the mass availability of immortality.

Answer 15
January, 2021

Because humanity is not united and therefore there is a struggle going on as if it were better for someone to live within the current life expectancy, and so life expectancy has increased significantly from 35 years in a relatively short historical period.
