Actually, dragons only live about 6 millenia.

I should save up the money so I can be frozen when I choose to be. Of course that won't be soon. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif Are any of you with me on this? Lol

The only trouble with freezing is it kills all of your cells,so i guess i'll give it a miss.

Cryogenics are farfetched. Odds are greater that biological suspension fields will be invented before we can create a blood replacement that works like anti-freeze.

Thorn

Well I hear Alcor has a way/plan of replacing your cells with a substance but I don't know much about that.

I think they were talking about our blood. Lol, it sounds convincing in a sense. Anyway, I won't lose hope. Ha http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Yes, 120 years would be about enough.

Yeah I intend/ed to live forever( :D ), but at first I have to change the code of genes to stop its internal ageing clock. :D Yes it is possible! (If I'm correct it was already possible somewhere in 1995 - 2001, not sure...it's a confidential information for as all of course. Perhaps all in all itwouldn't be gainfully for someone(s)) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

...a voice from the darkness.....

I would like to quit from this horrible World what usually just depresses me as soon as possible (but not by myself, if You understand me), so actually no, I'm not planning long/eternal life. At least not in here. However, I'm afraid, I'll be suffering here at least for 100 years or more (I've no idea why, and I'm not impressed at all)... :D That's my luck... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif Sorry for this sweet-bitter post... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Cybornetics is around 10years away from becomming a mainstream reality.

There is currently a chip under development, that is implanted in to the brain (can't remember the region) that tells you body not to slow down or stop the cells from regenerating.

If you think of it like this your body is constantly replenishing your Cells as they die.
Until your mid-20s your body is producing more cells than are dying off. In order to have it as a shock to your system once you hit that peak of cell production, it caps off slowly. This is what produces the signs of aging.

Current creams are designed to rejuvinate these dead cells and lengthen thier lifetime from something like 12hrs to 24hrs (can't remember the exact specifics), meaning that you skin looks smoother for a short period while the cells are still new.

There is an argument over this chip right now, mainly because theoretically it can be used to tell the body to produce a second layer of skin as tough as the first. This would provide those who have it with a much higher pain thresh-hold, harder to wound, and also be able to regenerate themselves far quicker.

In other words.. the prototypes to creating super-soldiers. It's the same with the Cybernetics research. This is still primarily in it's infancy mainly being pushed forward in the South of the UK, for people who've lost limbs and such.

They have already successfully created a Cybernetic Eye, Leg, and Arm implants that while not *as* good as the originals yet, do provide the user with more mobility and ability than before.

Personally I see myself dying at the current life-length (60-70).. but I would like to be given the chance to live longer. If only to make sure that my family remains cared for.

Well that and I fear for what lies after, not that there isn't a heaven. More of what will happen to me personally.. History is a cruel mistress, but Jehovah has a worse temper over failiar http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I don't like the idea of dying, but it might become hard to cope with the world when you become irrelevant to it. Unless one was very creative I think it would get to a point one would become suicidal.

Anyway, even if the immortality technology is available in my life time, I'm sure I won't be able to afford it.

Thorn, have you thought cryogeny will put you in a funny situation? You need descendents that will care for you. You will have no money or any other possessions in the future. You probably had to go back to school and get some future compatible qualifications to make a living.
