Death is one of the few certainties in life, but there are many ways to overcome it.
There are some scientists who believe that immortality is attainable for humans.
This could be the exchange of human bodies for machine versions or a miracle cure.
The timeline of how to get there is also hotly debated.
HUMAN IMMORTALITY BY 2030
A futurist has predicted that humans will become immortal by 2030.
Ray Kurzweil is a computer scientist and former Google engineer who has a history of correctly predicting future technologies.
In his book The Singularity Is Near, the famous futurist suggests that by 2030 we will have the technology that will allow humans to live forever.
He believes this technology could come in the form of nanobots that can repair the body from within.
Become immortal by 2050
The futurologist Dr. Ian Pearson previously told The Sun about his own immortality predictions.
He believes the hardest part will be surviving until the technology is widely available.
Back in 2020, Pearson predicted that the wealthiest in society could have access to this technology by 2050.
He said: “By 2050 it will only be reserved for the rich and famous.”
“Most people with middle-class incomes and decent working-class incomes can probably afford that in the 2060s. So everyone who will be 90 or younger in 2060.”
“If you were born anytime in 1970, you would be 48 this year.
“So anyone under 50 has a good chance of getting it, and anyone under 40 will almost certainly have access to it.”
The technology that could keep us alive could involve android bodies that human minds upload to, the expert said.
He also believes that biotechnology could be used to renew and rejuvenate the human body in ways that are currently impossible.
