Live to See 2025
Via Michael Anissimov, the World Future Society -- traditionally not a hotbed of Speculist type scenarios -- has published a list of very interesting predictions for the years 2010-2025. This one in particular got my attention:
By 2025, the Worldwide Average Life-Span Will Be Extended by One year Per Year--Only 15% of deaths worldwide will be due to naturally occurring infectious diseases.
Either way, we're talking about indefinite lifespan. If your life expectancy gets a year longer every year, and you can keep that up, well -- that takes care of the "immortal" part of the equation.
Just sixteen years away! And, again, this is coming from a futurist group that has tended towards a conservative outlook on these kinds of issues.
