    I often heard that Moscow are doing many spectacular researches regarding to biology. Who remember a scientist said that he found a way to slow down human aging. In 20 years, human life-span might well be 1'000? Who knows this news? And are Moscow citizens fond of stem-cell cure recently?

    Yeah, in 20 years I'm sure the human life span will be 1000. Where do you hear this crap?

    I would appreciate it when scientists kept to their own field of expertise and shut the hell up about other fields they are not qualified in. Since life-extension is so multi-disciplinary, the sounds of "soon we'll become 1000" should hopefull die out enough.

    From evolution follows that species evolve to make sure the gene spreads. When we pass the age in which we are ripe, and in which we have spread our genes, evolution seizes to be an impact. This is important because it means that the perfecting force of nature seizes to be an impact. In nature, this means these individuals sacrifice themselves for the group (in groups of primates), or they just die because they never reach that age. In humans, it means that our systems seize to function properly. Each and every one of our organs/structures evolved with the purpose to facilitate 'genetic transfer'. After this age, these organs often degrade, or in some way seize to work efficiently.

    There is a break on how many times our cell can multiply. This is to protect against cancer. This is a natural mechanism against cancer, which evolved because species did not have to live forever, but had to be able to survive long enough to spread genes, and thus a protection against cancer provides a higher chance to 'survive', than a possibility to live forever. How can we possibly live to reach 1000 when we can't even make sure everyone makes 80 in a biologically perfect state? It's because we don't know enough, yet, about the complex structure of our body, and probably won't know (enough) for quite some centuries to come. Until than, let's stop kidding each other and realise we are going to die. Soon.
