The dream of eternal life is certainly as old as humanity. In fact, we have come a little closer to it over the years, as medical advances and improvements in circumstances have already significantly extended life expectancy. And now the next decisive step is to come.
Futurist and technology expert from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) José Cordeiro and his co-author David Wood (mathematician and transhumanist from Cambridge University) are certain of one thing. Everyone interested will soon be able to live radically longer and even have an unlimited life expectancy. The corresponding technological revolution is taking place right now. Cordeiro explains this in an interview with watson.de.
Ultimately, he says, the main question is how to repair the damage that the ageing process does to the body. Co-author David Wood emphasises:
Research is making progress in finding ways to systematically replace, repair or reprogram this damage.
