My birthday question: do you want to live forever?

It is an unbending, an unending and an unassailable fact that me, you and everyone else you know will die. However some scientist believe that death is a technical problem and a couple of geeks in a lab will one day find a solution. In 2013 Google even launched a company (Calico) to cure death, or a life extension company. They invested 1,5 billion in the research company.

Admittedly, now it is possible to cure or control some deseases which were once considered deadly. The likes of AIDS, Cancer and so on but will they find the elusive immortality solution? My dentist said “I wouldn’t want to live forever… I want to do my part and go to pave the way for the next generation”. And the question is,would you want the option to live forever?

Above all should mankind pursue these technologies, particularly creating immortals- super humans called Homo Deus. Some argue that it’s immoral and that we need a more natural approach. Yet others thinks this is vital and should be pursued doggedly.
