      Ageing is not just wear and tear in the body, this is wrong. Think about a turtle, who can live up to 300 years. Or a dog, who had ageing problems at age of 12, like joint problems, grey fur, deeper voice. A 12 years old human is fine at this age.

          Years ago I decided that I'll live for 666 years. So far so good. ~630 more to come. I just counted that it will be a good age to see and learn more. Cheers!

                  i would want to live for 100 years because in 2080-2100 there may be a way to not age at all and even become younger

                    It's funny, the ability to live forever does indeed exist but that gift was given to a small jellyfish. The thing that was given the ability to live forever doesn't even do anything with it besides eating reproducing and jellyfish stuff. Its like something or someone is playing a joke on us. You either live forever and do nothing. Or do something and die at some point

                          Your just immortal somehow but doesn't mean you can get back your lost limb and decayed teeths, scars and loneliness as you watch your life getting worse by limited resources.

                                      Absolutely not, the entire point of human progress is to defeat the cycle of life and death! No healthy person in this entire world would choose death, would choose to have an expiration date when eternal life is available. Unless that is, if the individual is severely depressed and hates life to begin with.

                                              It come down to a matter of living space & food.

                                                actually that wont be an issue.


                                                1. the longer you live the longer you can delay child birth which in turn means population growth wouldnt actually increase that much at all. thats what is happening today. birth rates are declining as life expectancy increases and we have access to birth control and better health and education


                                                2. technology will likely increase resources as we develop better agriculture and also the development of artifical meat etc

Basically reincarnation in an advanced human way. Because if you were to remember everything it would be kinda boring wouldn't it? So if I was to not age and if I was to not die in billions of years to come...That'd probably be my solution to solving it. But it also means forgetting your loved ones and memories you had together. Yea I know what I said in the second sentence, but think about it... You could lose the machine where you had your memories... But still, that means you start a new life... Infinite reincarnation anyone?
