I read a few days ago, in the newspaper, that a scientist is leading a series of investigations on genes that would
allow to humans live forever.
I guess they're working on how to avoid genes to be destroyed by free radicals, given that we become old because of
OXIDATION, and it's impossible that there could exist "genes of death", because it goes against the main
function of the genes: to live. Plants and lower livin beings breath carbon dioxid and release oxigen, originally toxic,
but when oxygen became more common, we had to adapt to breath it. But at cellular level, oxygen is managed as far away
from the nucleus as possible.
I hope they're not creating a Frankenstein nor a Homo Superior
NOW, DOWN TO THE QUESTION:
To me, it'll be a CURSE to be ATTACHED to LIVING CONDITION forever. I'd be condemned to always lose my loved ones, to
watch the world changing constantly, that would be interesting, but I'd also be watching the places I loves dissapear.
Even if I became beautifull and younger as in Anne Rice's vampires, I asume it'd got to have a cost.
Because of my beliefs, I'd rather see what's on the other side of dead, how is the afterlife, if there's still a path to
walk there or if it's the final, resting destination of a journey.
NOW, SOMETHING WEIRD:
As a catechist, I have to attend some classes about pedagogy and Historyand education in faith. one day, a seminarist
talked to us about Human condition, and also about espirits (angels and demons). But then, he talked about Human
innmortals. "You're kidding us, no?" "You have been watching too many movies" "You talking
about undead, as in vampyres?" (here in Mexico there's no folk tradition about undeads). Well, he refused to
continue and changed the subject. Enigmatic and weird, huh? I don't believe in the "Vatican's numerous
cospirations" theory, much less that they're hiding or watching over "innmortals". Maybe the guy was just
