Scientists are Close to Finding a Way to be Immortal

Immortality is close to being discovered by scientists. Immortal jellyfish (Turritopsis nutricula), so far the only immortal creature on Earth, is the first step to immortality. Cryonics and cryongenics are explained.

Immortality is close to being discovered by scientists. Immortal jellyfish, so far the only immortal creature on Earth, is the first step to immortality.

Turritopsis nutricula.

Turritopsis nutricula jellyfish, have the ability to turn backwards in their life or reverse the life cycle.  The life of a Turritopsis nutricula is like this. Baby- Kid- Mature Teen- Adult. They can rewind into any one those stages repeatedly making themselves immortal. Baby to adult to baby.

What’s left to do is find the genetic structure of the jellyfish and try to copy it. Many of you heard that scientists made their own bacteria/ life (which is now frozen). If they can just make more bacteria with the genetic structure and DNA of the Turritopsis Nutricula to test it out, we might get immortal life.

A video of a scientist explains the means of immortality.

But its not all about the jellyfish. On youtube, a person was found commenting this: 

The UnNerved

Immortality for humans will be this. Humans will pay money to download their brain to a mainframe, they will exist virtually until cloning becomes legal and effective and the technology exists to download the virtual self into the clone. Instant Immortality. Keep a copy of yourself virtually just in case of accidental death. This could also solve deep space travel. Exist virtually during the trip in a machine until you arrive, at some point grow your clone, download and explore.

I heard on several shows that scientists have frozen people so they can be awaken decades later. There is only one problem- unfreezing them. The procedure is called cryonics.

It is the low-temperature preservation of humans and animals who can no longer be sustained by contemporary medicine, with the hope that healing and resuscitation may be possible in the future.-Text from Wikipedia

With the current technology, cryoperservation is irreversible. We hope someday we can revive them with highly-advanced technology in the future. The cost of a whole body cryoperservation costs $200,000. Cryonics first began in 1962. As of 2010, around 200 people have been cryoperserved.

    Michael Jackson + Cryochamber

Rumors are that Michael Jackson wanted to be frozen in a cryochamber, in the hope that he will be revived years later.

But the question’s are: Would it be affordable for us to be immortal? How much would it cost? Would it not somehow change the way of life? And are we meant to immortal?

    No, we didn’t mean to be immortal. But by means of tchnology, immortaliy can no longer be a dream.

    I pity the people who want to immortal. Its pointless. Its stupid. I am a Twilight Saga fan, so I am not saying that to all the vamp stories out there. But seriously? We are born, we live, we recreate, we die. Its the circle of life. People who are fearful of death, get over it! This talk about being immortal is because you crazy people are afraid of death, its the main reason for wanting it. This madness needs to stop. Now no offense to people that want it, but you need to get over it! Life would be boring if we had to live forever. If people didn’t die, then the earth would be overcrowded with people and cramped, we all die for a reason. So get your crazy minds out of dreams of immortality and enjoy the life you are given, don’t risk your life because you want to live forever, it is pointless, life is short for a reason.

    Oh right, so it’s “crazy” to want to live forever because heaven forbid that we’d have, you know, survival instincts or anything… Let’s all do something sensible instead and waste our time using bad examples of Vamp films like Twi-*vomits*… Sorry I can’t type that with a capitol letter. I’d love to be one of these laid back individuals who simply lies down and waits for death (not true!) but I happen to be an animal like any other and not particularly partial to the idea of blinking out of existence, so it’s either immortality, or the idea of a shiny beardy man who lives on a cloud, on that subject, you can’t really say that wanting immortality is crazy without including every single religion that promises eternal life after death (another form of immortality), which is, well, most of them (atheist myself as you may have guessed, for all I know, you may be too, I’m just saying).

    Given the choice, I think I’m gonna have to be ‘boring’ and choose immortality, thanks all the same, enjoy your coffin. ;)

    а я знаю средство как стать бессмертным : я бессмертен потому что я – служу сатане , – всемогущему и непобедимому дьяволу сатане и творю зло и преступления против бога , вселенной , государства , человечества и закона . чем больше я буду творить зло , чем больше я выпью крови со всех людий и со всего мира : тем больше великий сатана , мой дорогой повелитель сатана подарит мне безнаказуемой власти над миром и бессмертия !
