Having a way to visualize microRNA interaction with the cell or the mapping of active and inactive genes on the DNA has a profound impact on how microRNA is regulated in the body, and eventually, a way to reverse aging to achieve true immortality.

Possibly in the far future... But first I think we would need to increase our understanding of how cells age and how it can be combated. Currently we're only just at the stage of being able to grow artificial limbs so I think it's going to be quite a while before anything like that happens but even then it's only going to be available to thos ethat can afford it.

Right but once you have the device at a molecular scale, you can see everything. You can pinpoint the observation of the cell to the smallest unit because you can see everything. What is left to do is to reset the cell's DNA's active gene to the previous state or year with microRNA.

Not everyone needs to be able afford it, we can distribute the data like NASA imaging of Mars, where everyone can take a chunk of data and attempts to visualize or analyze it.

The problem is building such a machine. My idea is an attosecond laser scanner that can detect molecular changes of the DNA and microRNA. The video clip is posted below. The scientist suggests it would be done in year 2030

From what I understand they've found that giving young modified blood to an older animal has some rejuvenating effects. There's also a claim that this isn't the case but who do we believe? There may be older vampires preying on youngster in the future.
