Quote of the Day
If it’s always been your dream to have the ability to live forever, you may be in luck as scientists believe we are just seven years away from achieving immortality.

Humans predicted to achieve immortality within the next 8 years
Quoted in the article:
Kurzweil has also said he believes we will be able to “advance human life expectancy” by “more than a year every year and I think we can get there by the end of this decade”.
In an earlier book, IIRC, Kurzweil claimed we would reach this point by 2024. I hope the goalpost isn’t moved too much further. It is a very tough problem but there are some very promising results in rats and other lower life forms.
As uplifting as this is in a global sort of way, I always think of Eric when this comes up and I get a bit sad.
