Biological immortality (sometimes referred to as bio-indefinite mortality) is a state in which the rate of mortality from senescence is stable or decreasing, thus decoupling it from chronological age. The rate of mortality may cease to increase in old age, but in most cases that rate is typically very high.[2]. See Mind uploading in science fiction.) In a four-year study, 3 cohorts of hydra did not show an increase in mortality with age. We have the form which we are stating. All hydra cells continually divide. Do we run out of space on earth or even in the spirit realm? ", Current Biology: Volume 23, Issue 19, 7 October 2013, Pages 1844–1852 "Fission Yeast Does Not Age under Favorable Conditions, but Does So after Stress." Congratulations on this excellent venture… what a great idea! This sort of experimentation has been extended to humans in recent years. "The old mouse and young mouse cells are indistinguishable", David was quoted. Turritopsis dohrnii, or Turritopsis nutricula, is a small (5 millimeters (0.20 in)) species of jellyfish that uses transdifferentiation to replenish cells after sexual reproduction. To get to the long answer about genetically engineering immortality, we need to think about its enemy: aging!

As people get older, their bodies change. DISCOVER YOUR GIFTS to THRIVE. When you get the answer then you are to go through it, without hesitation. Biological immortality can be defined as the absence of a sustained increase in rate of mortality as a function of chronological age. [21][22][23] Contrary to popular belief, lobsters are not immortal. They are aligned, alighted and renewed from the light at will. Homeostatic telomerase activity observed in both asexual and sexual animals is not sufficient to maintain telomere length, whereas the increased activity in regenerating asexuals is sufficient to renew telomere length... "[26], For sexually reproducing planaria: "the lifespan of individual planarian can be as long as 3 years, likely due to the ability of neoblasts to constantly replace aging cells". Yes. It’s implications from a practical and spiritual perspective will be explored. This would make your consciousness free from the biological challenges to aging. When you no longer fear physical death your consciousness had evolved to eternal life. The primary killer today is degenerative diseases related to aging. A cell or organism that does not experience, or at some future point will cease aging, is biologically immortal. The principles of Eternal Life requires the soul be complete and the body is a subset of the soul. So you are a soul Laura. REVERSE AGING SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGHS 2017: Give the Gift of Youth At the Holidays! Some life extensionists, such as those who practice cryonics, have the hope that humans may someday become biologically immortal. Biologists have chosen the word immortal to designate cells that are not limited by the Hayflick limit (where cells no longer divide because of DNA damage or shortened telomeres). The source code for the WIKI 2 extension is being checked by specialists of the Mozilla Foundation, Google, and Apple. Hydras are a genus of simple, fresh-water animals possessing radial symmetry and no post-mitotic cells. I am talking about living forever in the physical sense and they are answering me in the figurative sense. One evolution affects the other. Who Wants it? Immortal cell lines of cancer cells can be created by induction of oncogenes or loss of tumor suppressor genes. For a Master to evolve they must not fear death. Lobsters don’t have this problem thanks to a never-ending supply of an enzyme called telomerase, which works to keep regenerating telomeres. However, this practice may not actually allow for one to continue their life through the backup, and since two (or more) beings with identical minds have never existed before, it is unknown whether or not they could share consciouness on any level. There will be no pestilence, death or sadness at this time and humans will have bodies … As stupid and childish as that may sound, can it actually be true? Is BIOLOGICAL IMMORTALITY for HUMANS even possible? [citation needed] Similar cases include hydrozoan Laodicea undulata[18] and scyphozoan Aurelia sp.1.[19]. [16] In these conditions, when a cell splits symmetrically to produce two daughter cells, the process of cell division can restore the cell to a youthful state. The idea was incorporated into Feynman's 1959 essay There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom.[47]. Biological immortality is possible and we will achieve it in incremental steps although you could still die through an accident, getting shot, eaten by a bear or just looking the wrong way crossing the street. Every time a cell divides, the chromosomes are copied, but they aren’t copied all … [39], In 2016, scientists at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and the Mayo Clinic employed genetic and pharmacological approaches to ablate pro-aging senescent cells, extending healthy lifespan of mice by over 25%. Biologists chose the word "immortal" to designate cells that are not subject to the Hayflick limit, the point at which cells can no longer divide due to DNA damage or shortened telomeres. Hydras are a genus of the Cnidaria phylum. Lobsters grow by moulting which requires a lot of energy, and the larger the shell the more energy is required. They will have the ability to live to forever but that is when humans have evolved to such a point that their physical form is united with their spiritual form. As 2018 arrives there are new advancements in science which are bringing the human race to extending biological life. (1998) "Mortality patterns suggest lack of senescence in hydra. One way to achieve biological immortality is to transplant the brain (and perhaps the spinal cord and parts of the nervous system) into an artificial carrier or synthetic body. [27][28], Although the premise that biological aging can be halted or reversed by foreseeable technology remains controversial,[29] research into developing possible therapeutic interventions is underway. This effort was widely criticized. HAPPY NEW YEAR! (1998) "Mortality patterns suggest lack of senescence in hydra. We are not simply saying that you cannot evolve past life. There will be no humans one earth that can live forever until they understand the principles of eternal life. Nanotechnology, and more specifically nanomedicine, has recently questioned the possibilities for biological immortality in humans. Many unicellular organisms age: as time passes, they divide more slowly and ultimately die. [36] The goal of current cryonics procedures is tissue vitrification, a technique first used to reversibly cryopreserve a viable whole organ in 2005. Before I begin the channeling I need to explain that now science is in the middle of a profound revolution, near to providing a way to extend lifespan by 30%. That’s about all one can say about this session.
