Singularity is Near. Medical advances will allow people to protect their bodies from the effects of aging, making the life expectancy limitless. Technological advances in medicine will allow us to continuously repair and replace defective components in our bodies, prolonging life to an undetermined age. The next step will be to apply new gene therapy technology replacing human DNA with synthesized genes.
Beyond merely extending the operational life of the physical body, a new form of immortality called "Digital Ascension" will emerge that involves "people dying in the flesh and being uploaded into a computer and remaining conscious".
We must remain vigilant. We must prepare ourselves for the coming age.
Singularity is near.
