Many scientists are now funded by large groups like Google to conduct research on eternal life. And this unimaginable challenge is starting to be tamed by science.
Immortality has fascinated people for a long time. Magic potions, spells, preservation of bodies, etc., have been tested in order to achieve eternal life. For the time being, none of these methods has been able to give results ... But in silence, science is advancing on the subject.
Here is the result of research carried out until today, in order to achieve eternal life.
This discovery would be so important that all financial means are now deployed to finance various research on the subject. Here is where we are today:
- At Northwestern University in the United States, scientists have mastered the deactivation of the " genetic change " responsible for aging on worms. Obviously, there are many differences between a worm and a human, but the work is progressing!
- Scientists have succeeded in making an elderly mouse younger , by injecting it with the blood of young mice. They believe that such a process could also work on humans.
Silicon Valley is the cradle of this research, as are some of the big names in scientists.
A global contribution
To think that only the United States is looking at the subject is a mistake. Many other countries are as well. And some of the world's largest fortunes are also contributing to the building, such as:
- Larry Ellison , businessman and owner of Oracle, ranking in the top 5 richest men on the planet
- Sergey Brin , co-founder of Google and the Calico Foundation
- Aubrey de Gray : a scientist and a researcher, in particular on regenerative medicine
Many celebrities (businessmen, stars, etc.) admit to being afraid of death and aging in general. This is why some subsidize or participate in this type of research.
7 factors of death
Aubrey de Gray, renowned English scientist, published in 2007 a book called Fining Aging . Currently, his job is to find a method to exclude death from our genes. It also looks at the 7 deadly senses, causing cellular aging . It is :
- Carcinogenic nuclear and epigenetic mutation
- Mitochondrial mutation: concerning the cellular components involved in the production of energy
- Intracellular waste caused by proteins not "digested" by our cells
- Extracellular waste which are proteins accumulated outside cells (e.g. the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease)
- The loss of cells due to lack of regeneration by the body
- Cellular senescence: what happens when cells no longer know how to divide
- Extracellular connectors cause loss of elasticity of cells and tissues
Modern science offers 5 methods to achieve immortality
Who wouldn't be intrigued by immortality? Many science fiction films feature people with eternal life. By digging into it a little more, it is possible to find some interesting work on the subject.
Wolfgang Fink is a researcher at the University of Arizona. He believes that the key to immortality lies at the biological level. For him, it would be enough to prevent cell death, as well as aging by known methods such as cryonics or possibly donation, in order to extend the lifespan.
But most scientists agree that there are 5 ways to strive for immortality:
- Unleash the power of the gene, by unraveling the mysteries around genetics and finding the gene of immortality in order to implant it in humans
- The cloning of certain parts of the body or the whole body. The cloning technique is the one that has been the most studied and the results of which have been the most convincing concerning eternal life.
- Cryogenics which preserves the organism more than it makes it immortal. It is about plunging a body into "cryogenic sleep", the time to find a cure for a disease with which it is infected, for example.
- The cyber-brain which consists of switching your mind to a hard drive when you die. This allows you to keep your "soul" intact without having a body. This project is called Russia-2045 and the scientists working on it claim that in just 17 years they will be able to create Immortal Men.
- Cellular repairs: nanotechnology is evolving and could provide support in bodily modifications and treatments for patients. Nanobots may be able to target and repair dying cells with healthy ones
Meditate to live indefinitely?
But this scientific sphere seems unattainable for the moment. What about the average person?
Have you ever heard of Buddhist monk Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov ? Born in 1852, he has not stopped meditating and seems to be still in a state of meditation even though he is believed to be dead. His death remains enigmatic. At one point in his life, he asked his brother monks to start the meditation process and the various funeral rites, while he was meditating in the Lotus position. According to him, death was near. That said, he never woke up from his state of meditation and still remains in the same position to this day, showing no sign of decomposition!
Some people claim that he is in a state of hibernation or that he has successfully achieved nirvana. This is why we hear that meditation can bring immortality through the liberation of the soul.
That said, meditating is good for your health, it has been proven. The benefits are multiple, such as the production of endorphins, rebalancing sleep and relieving stress, etc.
There are many centenarians, both men and women. Here are the most famous:
- Jeanne Calment (1875-1997) reached 122 years and some 164 days
- Shigechiyo Izumi (1865-1986) who lived 120 years and 237 days
- Sarah DeRemer (Clark) Knauss (1880-1999) who reached 119 years and 97 days
- Lucy (Terrell) Hannah (1875-1993) who died at the age of 117 years and 248 days
- Marie Louse Febronie (Hunting) Meilleur (1880-1998) who passed away at 117 years and 230 days
Today's centenarians are, for the most part, vegetarians, but others also eat meat, drink wine, smoke, also consume chocolate and do not exercise. What do they have in common? Happiness. These people tell you how happy they are to be surrounded by their family and take life as it comes.
What do you think of immortality? Do you really think science can find a way to do this? We would like to know your opinion, do not hesitate to discuss the subject, in the comments.
