Impossible? Not necessarily according to Aubrey de Grey, scientist, editor-in-chief of the journal Rejuvenation Research and co-author of the 2007 book Ending Aging. His ideas challenge the most basic assumption that aging is inevitable. He argues instead that aging is a disease — one that can be cured if it’s approached as “an engineering problem.” His plan calls for forestalling disease and eventually radically pushing back death.

Aubrey de Grey
A true maverick Aubrey de Grey, the editor-in-chief of the journal Rejuvenation Science and co-author of the 2007 book Ending Aging, challenges the most basic assumption underlying the human condition â€”that aging is inevitable. He argues instead that aging is a disease --one that can be cured if it's approached as "an engineering problem." His plan calls for identifying all the components that cause human tissue to age, and designing remedies for each of them â€”forestalling disease and eventually pushing back deathâ€¦providing for an indefinite lifespan. He calls this approach Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS).
Biomedical gerontologist Aubrey de Grey says although he doesn't know whether or not he would want to live to be 1000 (or even 100) years old, he does know that he would like to be able to make the choice when the time comes. "It's not about longevity," insists de Grey.
Biomedical gerontologist Aubrey de Grey shares insight on how to prolong ones life. "Do not generalize, do not just buy a book and believe what it says," says de Grey. "Pay attention to your own body, listen to what works for you."
Gradual change in an organism that leads to increased risk of weakness, disease, and death. It takes place in a cell, an organ, or the total organism over the entire adult life span of any living thing. There is a decline in biological functions and in ability to adapt to metabolic stress. Changes in organs include the replacement of functional cardiovascular cells with fibrous tissue. Overall effects of aging include reduced immunity, loss of muscle strength, decline in memory and other aspects of cognition, and loss of colour in the hair and elasticity in the skin. In women, the process accelerates after menopause. See alsogerontology and geriatrics.
Aubrey is a greater man than many think! He is more than correct, aging and even sickness itself is an infection we are all born into! Go to the end of aging and sickness at google search and examine all films and calls, there is an organization that has found the cause of aging, and even contacts and gathers men such Aubrey De Grey....

And you will find out that you want a building with 50000 cubic meters of space after you have a 40000 cubic meters of building. This need to have more does not tell anything about if it wise to have 50000 cubic meters of space for your personal satisfaction only.
