Not really it's going to be in your and my lifetime.

life extension is going to be possible by 2030 due to latest advancements if we keep up at this rate and full blown immortality will follow shortly after.

Right now we are deciding on the rights to gene editing and that is where we will go.

there are many investors investing in research companies to cure aging and one of the leading ones is google next to the 2030 project and a russian project i forget the name of.

2030 is a rough average goal determined with the technology we have now and the rate of advancement it might take till 2060 depending on what gets in the way.

With latest advancements in this year in relation to cancer and the revelation that the brain heals itself over time and a few other things are big milestones imo but i'm not a proffesional and i cannot say to take my word on that but i am definitely interested in that field of medicine and techonology.

One of the biggest leaps we could have a few bio-tech companies have a project to basically kick start the brain using brain dead patients to try bring them back.

The reanima project looks like it could have very big potential if results come out positive but we need to see what happens.

Also need a good control system and land map. Taiwan was a dump back then, it is still a dump right now 20 years later. Population density here is off the chart

Kind of ironic how developing countries have large positive growth rates, while developed countries have stagnant or regressive growth rates (think India vs Japan). I think there's a lot of possibilities on how It'll play out.

-There could be a mass immigration from population dense, poor countries, to low population richer countries. (I hear the Alt-Right screaming in horror now)

-Cities get bigger (most likely and a possible dystopian outcome as well, less land for crops and such.
Soylent Green, anyone?)

-Large war, wipes out millions, maybe billions. [not a favorable option, but it might happen due to current politics (please don't open that can of worms here!)]

-New pathogens. (stated before, but I have faith in R&D. As long as it's not done by Umbrella...)

-Someone mentioned machines. I don't personally think robotics will help, nor do I think it will be at the level needed at that point. Mechanization might help if cities get bigger, but then unemployment will probably skyrocket, too (at least, in the short run).

-Someone else mentioned space travel. I find it HIGHLY unlikely that colonizing Mars will help. The amount of time and resources it would take just to send a small crew to Mars is still a complex logistical problem to solve. It's also going to take a long time for us to start making Mars an easily livable place. Even by 2030, I doubt there will be the infrastructure in place to start exporting humans to Mars in order to help levy an increasing population. Besides that, you also have the problem of selecting people who would be able to survive a place like Mars, they would have to be highly educated and physically fit enough to go there.



TL;DR Humanity is doomed and we dun goof'd.




1. Cities getting bigger is not neccesarily bad as less land from crops etc can be offput by genetic engineering of crops and vertical farms and new ways of growing crops and even growing meat.

2. Wars can happen valid point

3. Pathogens are a valid worry

4. Unemployment isn't inherently a bad thing with automation unemployment skyrockets however this is where we are heading with a valid system of universal basic income and an overhaul of the current economic system.

There is no other way to get around it unemployment is going to be something that impacts 90% or more probably in the future and we have to and are starting to open up to the idea so have hope.

5. Mars is unlikely but it's infrastructure we need.

We aren't as doomed as you think.

If we do become immortal how will you spend your 1000s of years of life?

Let me be dramatic.





If we don't fix our problems, we might as well be doomed.



Anywho, rebuttal points:

1. Genetic engineering is a controversial topic, and I don't think we should be manipulating foods past the point where they would be at if we did it naturally (i.e. inserting animal DNA into pant DNA). Growing of cities also increase pollution and waste, so there is also a large problem there (look an New Delhi for an example of a large population and a large city, Hong Kong is another good example of the problem with large cities)

2. pew pew

3. T Virus!

4. I did say short run. I can't argue here.

5. Mars will be a while, and we don't need it for survival. Think of it more like when the Eastern Hemisphere came to the Western Hemisphere. They didn't need to go, and it wasn't necessary for survival, but it was an opportunity for exploration and for expansion of themselves. I find it to be the same with space exploration. We don't need to go, but there is that want of exploration and the expansion of ourselves as a species to go out farther.



VR Waifu simulator is best way to live out 1000 years lel.

All valid points but whether we should or shouldn't manipulate food is up to debate and we will probably do it even if it's bad :(

No,... it won't,

there is war scheduled before then, along with a global Pandemic.
both of which will reduce the population to about half what it it is now...

so,... no worries!

No no, I absolutely refuse to grow to be 50+. I will not become an old person.
