It won't be in your lifetime, pal.


if i die in 20 years sure but it will happen in the next 60.

We are very likely to extend the human lifespan by a great deal within the next 60 years.

I'm only 19 i'll be alive by the time we are augmenting humans or genetically modifying body parts.

To say i won't be around is to say science will slow down somehow at the rate we are going 60 is year is at max.

But your welcome to your opinion that it won't happen in the next 60 years im living specifically so i can modify my body and hopefully extend my lifespan to the maximum and not be stuck with this pathetic body.

Honestly though if i did find out that it wouldn't happen in my lifespan i honestly just say screw it and start doing hard drugs till i die i mean no point in going on if your just going to die in such a small lifespan :P


However i have hope the rate we are going is sufficient and i plan to dedicate my life towards making sure some form of modification to humans exists in my lifetime.

prolly not though.

Who knows.

Augmentation possibly. Genetic modification unlikely.

You're confusing yourself. Science is slow.

I'm sorry.

Doubt it.

The point of life varies by the individual.

ok

1. Very likely if it doesn't something would have stopped our progress.

2. Science is slow but its moving at a rate that's fast enough for such things in our lifetime.

3. I have already tried to commit suicide multiple times when people convinced me of what you are trying to say but luckily in the end i didn't believe them as i saw enough to give me faith that we will make it.

I think you're overestimating the rate of progress in medical technology, which is glacial at best. Ineffective 'medicine' is much more profitable in the presence of ridiculous regulation and IP laws.

And the fact that while technology in general may seem exponential, it's more likely to be sigmoid in nature. See Moore's law, at first growth was slow, then it picked up as we learned to advance efficiently, and now as we approach the limits of the technology, it's slowing down again. The car is another good example. Cars today are actually *worse* than they were in the '90s, despite (slightly) better technology.

1 and 2 makes seem the most likely. 1 likely harder to control but also shown it can be done. 2 likely would work similar to number 1 but more control though their are other risks as well i'm sure.and both could possibly cause a immune response which number 3 wouldn't.
