No. Good grief. That would be stupid, to begin with, even if they could. Theyd have to outlaw births too or theref be serious over crowding worldwide. Birth and death rates barely balance out as it is wil longer and longer lifespans. Cant stop death anyway. Its a natural fact of life. Can prolong life maybe but cant make it last forever.
Yes, science is constantly developing and moving forward. You never know, if the solution would be to hook up all your organs to machines, it is still a solution. However, I imagine that if the solution was a pill or something else simple, the information would never be released to the public. We already have problems with overpopulation now, imagine how bad it would be if people never died. People have to die.
Yes. It is inevitable. Each cause of death is merely a problem awaiting a solution. Notice people do not drop dead of Polio or Small Pox anymore. Nutrition is improving. Access to health care in the US is about to be much better. Traffic safety has improved by leaps and bounds (although that will be the greatest cause of accidental premature death.) Eventually, we will reach a point where we can engineer our bodies back to age 25 or something. Or download our brains into a 25 year old avatar body.
We would eventually need to cultivate Mars, most likely, and master intergalactic travel. But making more of our earth's surface livable would go a long way already. Don't worry too much about overpopulation. Without death around the corner, birth rates will go way down. And the hydra is immortal, and we're not overrun with hydra. So are certain jellyfish.
I've heard the first person to live to be 1,000 is already alive today. Although we have no idea how old this individual is. I hope it's Aubrey de Grey.
maybe one day when we begin to venture out into space and colonize other planets, when we are sufficiently advanced enough to do so, but it would only be preventing death from old age, disease, sickness etc.
