Death: The Ongoing Search for a Cure

Intracellular Cleaning Enzymes

Special enzymes can be designed to ingest the cellular garbage that builds up inside cells during aging process. Bacteria should exist that has the enzymes to break down these substances. All we have to do is find these bacteria and extract their enzymes and put the enzymes in our bodies. The proper place to find these bacteria could very well be graveyards because graveyards are full of human remains. So in theory graveyards should be full of these bacteria that are consuming the things that we would like to get rid of living tissue.

Cryogenics

Alcor Life Extension Foundation will freeze the bodies of their clients in liquid nitrogen until science finds a way to bring them back to life. The first stage of the operation occurs at the patient’s bedside following death. Prior to pronouncement setup is done, and after pronouncement and Alcor team takes over. Open-heart bypass surgeries done to remove the blood and replaced by a substance called a cryo-protectant. This protected remove as much moisture from the body tissues as possible to prevent damage during the freezing process. The goal is to reverse the freezing process at a point in the future when medical scientific advancements have been made that can cure them of their illness or disease. The patients are stored in cryo-stasis in temperature sensitive metal containers. Alcor preserves whole body patient as well as heads of patients referred to as ” neuros “. The intent of preserving only the head is to restore the personality and the identity of the patient at a later date. Neuro preservation is cheaper than a whole body cryogenic preservation.

DNA cloning

In the popular film, Jurassic Park a woolly mammoth was found fully preserved beneath the ice. The mammoth’s tissues were preserved within the ice and discovered by scientists later on. The premise of the movie played upon modern medical advancements in cloning. In the cloning process a tissue sample is taken from one organism for the purpose of growing an entire separate organism from the DNA of the original tissue sample. The movie of course is classified as science fiction but only because we had no viable DNA of a prehistoric creature. The structure of the DNA must remain undamaged by the ravages of cold to be viable for cloning. Given a viable DNA sample, scientists would prove to a very skeptical public that cloning of any creature that has ever existed on the face of the earth can be replicated. This does not exclude the human being. In this respect, at least biologically, mankind has already invented immortality.

So how close is science to achieving viable immortality? The answer is closer than you may think. Portions of scientific research on stem cells and DNA are banned by most nations in the testing phases due to the question of ethics they pose. One thing is most certain. The answer to this question of immortality will remain top-secret. It will most certainly not be made available to you and me.
