Some life extensionists, such as those who practice cryonics, have the hope that humans may someday become immortal through technological developments that may be used to correct the cause of "death" of the person held in cryonic suspension.
Biogerontologist Marios Kyriazis suggested that biological immortality in humans is an inevitable consequence of natural evolution. His extreme lifespans through perpetual-equalising interventions (ELPIs) theory proposes that the ability to attain indefinite lifespans is inherent in human biology, and that there will come a time when humans will continue to develop their intelligence by living indefinitely, rather than through evolution by natural selection.

Famous quotes containing the word life:

—Elizabeth Cady Stanton (18151902)
