I think that the goal of our generation is find the mechanism that cause the age progress and stop and reverse it ( see the research of University of Berkeley, about the Sirt3 ), to extend our life maybe forever. I'm a musician, I can only play my synth, but all the Presidents of the nations of the World that can do mutch assigning resources to this kind of research to find the meds that can reverse aging-associated degeneration. This is not against the religions, because I think that if God exist and have give us life, I imagine he want we take care of it.

Personally I think that the stimulation of brain's stem cells is the right way. Also interesting is the scannering of the brain for the digitalization of the mind and successive upload in a digital platform. The following is an article on the immortality of november 2018.
