Technological development stuns me from time to time.
Well not really. Replacement tissue grown on mice, printed tissue (you all watched The Fifth Element), gene therapy, nano-robots fixing damaged cells. It’s all becoming a reality.
Ray Kurzweil says that technological development will eventually bring us immortality. Typical lifespan of a human being will take a few leaps, to a point, where we’ll no longer know what death is.
Will this bring us a different life style, a new social order, new culture, utopia? Happiness? Or maybe just a bunch of people bored out of their minds living their long lives. Perhaps too long.
Do we need immortality? Do we even want it?
