Five Ways To Become Immortal

There are many living creatures that are considered to be immortal yet I am starting to believe whether man will one day find immortality?

Well, good news guys. Science has finally given us the deets on an eternal existence. Lets twist some connections in our brain and find out its possibility and what will be the consequences if our dream comes to reality. Scientists say in about 20 years we will have the technology to not only prolong life far beyond what it is today, but, possibly, allow human beings to live forever!

There are several ways to reach immortality. Find out how this can be done.

1. Nanotechnologies that can replace our vital organs

Nanotechnologies capable of replacing many of our vital organs could be available in 20 years time.

There are already ways scientists can create artificial pancreases so this isn’t as crazy as it sounds. This means that we will get to replace any organ in our body with a new one. We will get to do this over and over again until technology is advanced enough so that our actual organs can last forever.

2. Neural implants

Neuroprosthetics aren’t new. They have been around commercially for three decades, in the form of the cochlear implants used in the ears (the outer reaches of the nervous system). They can help stimulate the brain for people who have had strokes or head injuries. They can also ease the effects of Parkinson’s disease and depression. In addition, they can be used as a pathway from brain to computer.

While scientists are a long way from being able to read people’s innermost thoughts, brain-interface technology has advanced rapidly. Neutral implants are devices that restore or supplement the mind’s capacities with electronics inserted directly into the nervous system.

In the future you will be able to control machines with your mind. Perhaps you could even control other people! This technology will most likely ensure that our brains will never degenerate and our memory will never delete or get destroyed. Any brain damage will be automatically repaired (or transferred into a machine).

3. Nanobots that replace blood cells

These will be used as a supplement for our natural blood cells and they will be thousands of times more effective. Also, they will allow healing and repair to be nearly instant and will ensure that the cells in our body never decay, allowing us to never age or maybe we could even grow younger instead of older!

4. Cyborg technology

A cyborg, short for “cybernetic organism”, is a being with both organic and biomechatronic parts. In fact, for some of us that future has already arrived. Cyborg technology has advanced to the point where it’s safe to say that bionic humans are no longer the stuff of science fiction.

In the future instead of replacing body parts with biological copies, we may be able to replace them with mechanical copies. We will then become super human biological cyborgs. We will live forever and be nearly invincible.

5. Cryonics

Cryonics is an effort to save lives by using temperatures so cold that a person beyond help by today’s medicine might be preserved for decades or centuries until a future medical technology can restore that person to full health.

Currently, around 200 people have had this procedure since 1962. In the United States, only people who are pronounced clinically dead can have cryonics performed. The only problem, the technology does not yet exist to bring these people back to life, without killing them. But it is possible that someday this will change.
