Do You Want to Be Immortal? Really?

September 03, 2012



"...it is likely that there are people alive today who will never die.... medical technology is advancing so rapidly that sometime later in this century, Homo sapiens will become Homo immortalis."

 

This is a fascinating question relative to Bob Monroe's perspective that to evolve we must ultimately "acheive escape velocity," that is, move beyond the addictive vibrational patterns of the earth life system.

From HuffingtonPost.com. By George M Young:

According to Dr. Igor Vishev (b. 1933), a distinguished Russian scientist and philosopher, it is likely that there are people alive today who will never die. Just stop for a moment and think about that. Alive today. Never die.

Vishev is convinced that medical technology is advancing so rapidly that sometime later in this century, Homo sapiens will become Homo immortalis. He believes that our current lifespan of up to 90 or, in extreme instances, slightly over 100 years, is not cast in stone or fixed in nature but an evolutionary stage out of which we are now emerging. Genetic engineering, replacement of natural organs with artificial instruments, nanotechnology, and other developing technologies could now extend our lives well beyond today's assumed limits. He proposes that a 200-year-old person is a present possibility, and a person who could live at least as long as a 2,000-year-old redwood tree is certainly imaginable. Such longevity will be self-propelling. New discoveries during the 200-year (or 2,000-year) lifespan would make what Vishev calls "practical immortality" a fairly safe bet. By "practical" he means "realizable" but not absolute. People could still die, accidentally or otherwise, but eventually techniques of "practical resurrection," toward which today's cloning is a primitive first step, would be able to restore life to those who somehow lose it. Vishev's philosophy, which he calls "practical immortology," is an attempt to shift our entire culture and worldview from one based on the certainty of human mortality to one based on the prospect of human immortality.

...The important question now may not be whether remaking ourselves and our universe to eliminate limits to present life is possible, but whether it is desirable....Could many of our best intangibles be lost in the transition from human to "transhuman"?...

HOMO IMMORTALIS OMNIPOTENT


Living in “Infinite Space-Time”! No more “human created secondhand God’s”!

The function assigned to GOD is now available through understanding
the Universe we are part of. We will be the Engineers of our own body chemistry, in the Infinity of Space-Time we can live forever.

Biotechnology will control the “aging process” (we don’t wear out, but are DNA programmed to age), and “involuntary death” will not exist any more.

Science, Gene Engineering, Nano Technology, Epigenesis, Astrophysics
etc. and Extra Terrestrial Migration will allow for “Goal Oriented Evolution”, leading to HOMO IMMORTALIS OMNIPOTENT.

The fact that you are reading this is a good sign.

Many people know that we all have to die, so anything that may undermine that believe will be avoided.

If this would be information confirming that there is life after death, which is something many of us deem possible, we would be more inclined to believe it. The reason is, that once we have formed a believe and have been influenced accordingly, we are more reluctant to reevaluate our acceptance of it.

Since I grew up in a katholik environment I was sure that by following the rules, I would go to heaven and presumable not be dead.

I am now over seventy years old and have lived and loved on five Continents. With the information and experiences I have been exposed to, I have come to the conclusion, that science will make it possible that we can keep on living here, instead of dying and going to heaven.

You may be inclined to believe in some form of life in heaven, because that is the opinion of confirmed authorities. I can assure you, that looking for information based on up to date science, leading to youthfulness and the avoidance of death, will not do any harm, but may give you more time to do so.

You probably ask, what is this about?

It is like a quantum leap. A move to a new state of being. In the material world it would be like the jump from the atom to a mineral. Or from a multicellular organism to a cerebral animal. Or from a culture that depends on an “idealized self projected image (God)”, to provide protection and escape from annihilation , to a society that uses science and technology to solve the problems of sickness and death.

The tools that propelled us from primates to “Homo sapiens sapiens”, will now be developed, so we will evolve to Homo Immortalis Omnipotent.

Of course there will be opposition from institutions that now have the monopoly on “Life after death”. They should not worry, because our need for entertainment will always exist. Even sincere moral and religious disapproval should not divert us from taking this next step in evolution.

Just like the hydrogen atom did not know that it would become the planet we now live on, even though it already contained the basic code leading to the status quo. We will realize that the abilities that we have assigned to our God’s, are now for us to acquire.

The only limit is our imagination! Freedom from death now!

It would be terrible if some could force others to be immortal, maybe to be slaves or be abused, and there’s no way out. Wow, that’s too terrible!!! Oh God, please help me not to be in such a state. Maybe the physical universe with immortality, the two working in partnership, is a creation of the spirits - so that there would be humans with physical bodies living under the illusion of time and have mortality. I think it’s valuable if some, or at least one, of those who have really died, not just near-deaths, could be brought back to tell us how the cosmics work, and how it’s like to have really physically died. Maybe they would tell us and then go back to their non-physical existence and physically die again quick smile. I really wish to live long enough to see something like this but unfortuanately there seems to be slim chance. smile

what a mess… if only the rules and benefits of metempsychosis (reincarnation) were known… who wants to be immortally struck in your ego/emotional disorders/psychological problems , I’d better take a rest sometimes, until everything is perfect smile))) (btw, when everything is perfect down here and you can graduate the next level, you’d want everything but immortality in the flesh in this level… kinda like getting immortal in the first level of super mario ahahahahahahahah )

Perhaps we shoud let a couple of people get to be 200 and then ask them what try think.
