what would happen if we never die? A kayos or a heaven?

Imagine  what would happen if we started living forever! You could spend more time with your loved ones, master a variety of races, and travel the world! If everyone on Earth were immortal, we could recover from our mistakes and it would also save us a lot of money that may have been used for healthcare. This is what would happen, if humans were immortal. 

First things first, like it is shown in movies that you jump off a high building and survive to tell the story is very unlikely. However, immortality where people don't "die of old age" could be just around the corner. Which planet can handle a population of people with increasing life expectancy?

 In Silicon Valley, there is a movement of billionaires and biotech companies that are developing drugs to eliminate aging and extend life expectancy indefinitely. In your opinion, playing around with genetics and reducing calorie intake has already been shown to extend the lifespan of flies, worms, and mice, so why couldn't it work for humans?

What about population?

Regardless of whether these efforts are successful, the real question is: are we ready for a longer lifespan? There are almost 8 billion of us on this planet, and if we all start living for centuries, life will look very different. Just think about the social implications that would entail.

For starters, the idea of ​​being married to someone your entire life could become a thing of the past.With a lifelong union that potentially encompasses more than 1,000 years together, we could begin to see marriages as a bunch of long-term commitments that we make throughout our lives. Living longer would also mean that we would all be working much more. No pension plan in the world could support him if he stopped working at 65 and then lived to 500. A longer career would be a blessing and a curse.


Considering the positive side:

On the positive side, with so many skilled workers remaining in the workforce, our economy would be more productive than ever. But on the other hand, if people remained in their jobs for hundreds of years, then young people would have no room to find work and advance. This type of stagnation would become a problem in other areas, such as social progression. If the leaders of the old thought of the eighteenth century never died or retired from power, who can say that we will ever be able to progress in previous problems such as racial segregation?

Won't life become meaningless?

Even if our society found a way to regulate itself, what would the experience of immortality be like for you as an individual? If we had practically endless days ahead, wouldn't it take away a large part of what makes life special? There would be less incentive to make each day count, and as a result, we could end up with a lot of unhappy people on our planet.

Oh, and by the way, that planet is not getting bigger, it will just keep getting more crowded. Earth already has an overpopulation problem, and if the death rate stops, our resources will quickly begin to run out. Suddenly, the idea of ​​immortality doesn't seem so good after all. Eventually, we would not have room for new generations; Maybe we should start sending people to settle on other planets.
