Scientists are saying that immortality (the beginning stages at least) will be possible within 30 years. Even though it will take longer to achieve full immortality, it will still be coming. This Immortality will mean no more death, for anyone, in a short amount of time. The world will change, for better or for worse.

Life is special
Welcome to this article. If you are reading this, you are most likely in the journey known as life. You have probably been told at least one cliche about life and how precious it is.
As people, we have become jaded towards this insight, and made it into a cliche. There is a reason why life is special though.
Most people hate and fear death, and for a good reason. Death is usually classified as an end. In dreams, when you die, you wake up. One idea as to why this happens is because your brain doesn’t know what happens after death, which makes sense. Is this “End” or “limit” good though. Many people reading this right now will be saying “you don’t know what I’ve been through, the pain, the loss, the suffering, the fear. How can you write this.” I tell you the truth, I’ve been through it also. You can see my story here – http://9words.ca/2016/09/a_neophyte_faith/ – I’m not saying that losing someone is easy, or that you won’t, but at the same time, What makes life life? Death is a limit, it’s the stopping point of this life, it indicates when someone is going to end the race of life. This limit causes us to evaluate and cherish every moment. We experience wonder, joy, beauty, along with the pain, death, and depression. Death keeps it in perspective. Death is what keeps life life, and not just survival. It encourages us to go out, and fulfill our dreams, finish our bucket list, get around to the things we have been putting off for far too long, before we are forced to stop.
To be clear
I am not saying that eternal life is bad. I mean Christians get it after we die. Sure, we could advance much faster after we live for longer. We will probably finally get actual hover boards and find a cure for cancer and colonize mars, but for what. We will be living in a time full of sin, pain, despair, disinterest. The quality of living will go down, wars will break out, and many of us will be here, living through all this.
Personally, this “limit” or “restriction” called death is much preferable to living in flawed everlasting life. As Christians, I think that we are called to keep living until He calls us home. Then we will experience true (everlasting) life.
