Senão a imortalidade, um tédio pra mais de 100 anos.

By 2020, we will be testing drugs that will turn off the fat insulin receptor gene that tells our fat cells to hold on to every calorie. Holding on to every calorie was a good idea thousands of years ago when our genes evolved in the first place. Today it underlies an epidemic of obesity. By 2030, we will have made major strides in our ability to remain alive and healthy – and young – for very long periods of time. At that time, we’ll be adding more than a year every year to our remaining life expectancy, so the sands of time will start running in instead of running out.

O futurista Ray Kurzweil escreveu um texto sobre a tecnologia ao fim da próxima década deveras interessante. Vale a pena.
