No this is not the plot of the latest James Rollins or Steve Berry book, although in his latest book- BLOODLINE, James Rollins did use this as a plot. He did push it a little further by saying that being immortal is already possible.
This short blog will not try to answer whether immortality is possible or not, I leave that to the scientist, neither will I answer whether it is good or bad.
As a Buddhist, I’m feeling quite ambivalent about the issue of immortality. I don’t know whether it is good or bad in trying to achieve Buddhahood. In a way, it will give us more time to achieve Buddhahood in our current life time but also it may hinder our ‘urgency’ in attaining Buddhahood.
