When the first person can live to be in their 80s for 20 years, we'd have made progress.

When they can live to be in their 40s for 80 years, I think we may be close.

When you're 15 and 2100 and 20 in 2200, we've probably gotten immortality.

I'm a pessimist, and thus I voted for 2150-2200. However, I want to be proven wrong in a positive way in regards to this.

We already have many threads about this topic that could be used but i will play along.

 

In my opinion, we will have the first age treatment before 2070 for sure. By that date medicine will be so advanced that the chance to die from a disease is really, really small.

 

So, people who are under 30-40 today, as long as they don't die of a cancer or an accident in the next few decades, may probably be the first generation to live forever.

I often question if, perhaps, a supercentenarian born in 1950 might become the oldest person alive. If they live to 110 and get anti-aging treatments that should exist by 2060, then they could live forever.

I am not going to say it is impossible to achieve non-biological immortality, but I strongly believe that it will never be in the interest of world leaders to let their people live forever.

Maybe, IF it is possible to reverse most or all of the aging-related damage which already occurred to his/her body BEFORE 2060.

That and religion always delay things a bit, not forever tho.

I think the first person to totally live forever will be born after 3000. I know I'm gonna get a lot of flack for this, but barring something radical (which might just happen) I don't see it happening until then.

 

On that note, though, it wouldn't be impossible for one of us to live forever. Just get some good cryogenics and see what happens. If not, I still think we have pretty good chances of living 100+ years very happily and healthily.

DallasCowboysFan, i cant agree with you. If you look at our timeline and other futuristic websites you will see that by year 3000 many say we are in the verge of being a type 2 civilization. By 2300 a updated human, can't be killed by diseases, accidents, bullets or old age let alone 3000.

 

Just think where we are at 80 years ago. The TV and electricity were just babies. People with cancer had like 0% chance of living. Now in 10 years we achieve more than we did in 80. By 2050+ we will progress amazingly quick. Think exponentially.

We've already made progress with life extension (at least in mice anyway). I bet people would live forever by 2050-2060 at least.

I think that anyone alive right now under the age of 40 has a very real chance of a lifespan extending hundreds of years.  By 2030 or so I expect that technology will increase lifespan by greater than 1 year every year.  At this point anyone alive could technically outrun death.

You would consider that to be pessimistic? Really? I think humans will never be able to live forever!

This is a bit of a crumby question, really. Do you mean when will the technology for immortality be available, or when will the first people to live forever be born? If you meant the latter, then I think that some people already alive today will live forever.

Even when we do become immortal, we can't say we will live forever because by saying forever you assume you've always existed. Everyone was born, so...

There is an enormous difference between living "forever" and living for a "really, really long time". This is another reason I believe we will never see a human, or any entity for that matter, live forever. Even the universe has its demise. On top of that, the amount of information needed to store an eternity's worth of data is, in fact, infinite. So, even if someone miraculously manages to outlive the universe, they would be an entirely different person. Their identity would change so drastically over time causes them to really be more of a near-sentient computer program than a conscious being. Data would need to be erased to make room for an infinite amount more of information.

A good restatement of this question would be, "when should humans become biologically immortal?" or "when, if possible, should humans become capable of transferring themselves to a digital state without destroying their original consciousness?" The answer to both of these questions, with current technological trends, should be sometime in the next two centuries. The answer to both of these questions weighted in with political, economic, social, AND technological trends would point more towards a time in the next three or four centuries.
