Death, most if not all of us fear it. However, it may be possible to postpone death for a while, and hopefully entirely. One major way of postponing death for awhile is through the biological route, I.e, stopping the aging process. Many people think, including me, that this will be achieved in the near future albeit like most medical practices, it’ll get better over time.
Now, for this question, Let’s assume that this is achieved in the next month, people flock towards getting an opportunity to live slightly longer but it doesn’t completely halt the aging process for good. Now let’s assume that this adds an extra 5 years to the persons life span, and each year, this medical practice gets improved, adding an extra 5 years, so instead of adding 5 years to your life span, it adds 10 years instead.
Now we can assume that this medical practice won’t be a one time use, and the person can take it as many times as they want, but with a reasonable time period between each and every one, like taking medication, but much much longer.
This scenario however brings up a good question, even it’d you don’t die of age, what are the possibilities of dying from something else, now this leads me into the question:
if the average person doesn’t die from age, then is it possible for them to live long enough to were technology allows actual immortality, or will they die from a majority of other factors?
Essentially, could the person live long enough to see perfect immortality, or will they die from something else before that happens
