Best methods to live like immortals


Are  you scared stiff of dying ? and want to live more than you live ? Here are some magnificent methods which gives you eternal living. The only ways one can cheat death (biological and digital)

CRYONICS


Cryonics is a science, involves refrigerating the body in fluid nitrogen, procedure starts after stopping heart of the patient, replacing the blood with a cryo-protectant fluid to avoid ice from forming in the cells as the temperature is lowered to minus 196 C. The body is then held upside down (Head to have the lowest temp), in a massive steel container, which can hold up to 4 people.  The brain is like a hard-disk and it could finally be associated to another body. We don’t have the technology yet to revive the bodies. However, there are over 250 people preserved in this way and if someone wants their body to be preserved , $200,000 have to pay.


BRAIN EMULATION


Uploading your brain along with thoughts and memories on to a computer. Its non other than creating a digital you, alive in a computer. if a person’s mind can be effectively uploaded, that means it can also be downloaded  into a robot. The human brain is transformed into a digital brain (with a conscious mind and all previous human characteristics) and attached to a robot’s body. That certainly means immortality, numerous animal brains are being researched and have been somewhat simulated.

CYBERNETICS


Science has succeeded in creating prosthetics that look real and can do better than even the real thing (Oscar Pistorius’ extremely fast legs). As a substitute of biological organ transplants, humans will be given mechanical organs, transforming the mere mortal into a cyborg. A special apparatus will drive our hearts and a flamethrower could be attached to our left arm. we will acquire massive strength and live forever. 

NANOBOTS


Nanobots are microscopic machines designed for repair and rebuild body cells. visualize millions of these crawling inside you and fixing all “mortal” issues your body might experience. Its true, Scientists have successfully used nanobots to restore optic nerves in blind hamsters by building a custom synthetic molecule that, when injected, arranges itself into a nanofiber to repair the nerve. In near future, scientists want to send the little bots on a cancer cell killing binge

SENS


Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence. The term negligible senescence was first used in relationship with lobsters and hydras to mirror the reality that these creatures don’t be evidence for any signs of aging. SENS biogerontologists wish for eliminate all diseases caused by aging. scientists develops multiple therapies targeting distinct types of age-related damage, resulting in personalized treatment.

PANACEA


Panacea was the goddess of universal remedy In Greek mythology. Her name, reassign to the medical world, implies a drug that can cure all sicknesses. Alchemists were seeking this remedy in connection with the philosopher’s stone, in order to prolong life for an indefinite period. Life in a small pill or a glass of syrup might seem far- fetched, but so did a cure for the plague in Victorian-era.

TELOMERASE


The Telomerase enzyme has the character of being “The source of Adolescence”. Invented in 1980’s. Chromosomes have caps of repetitive DNA called telomeres at their ends. Every time cells divide, their telomeres shorten, which ultimately prompts them to stop dividing and die. If the enzyme is reawaken in these vanishing cells, normal human aging could be slowed, stopped or even reversed. Scientists have effectively studied the telomeres in decrepit mice, 

CLONING


Cloning in biotechnology refers to processes used to create copies of DNA fragments (molecular cloning), cells (cell cloning), or organisms It was first experimented  in animals , asexual reproduction of sheep and cows. Through reproductive cloning, a new multicellular organism is created, genetically identical to another. The body is the same, the mind is not. If there’s no need for an entirely new organism, just the organs can be reproduced and placed in the original body. Scientists have made major achievements with cloning
