“Imagining that we’ll live forever—whether physically or spiritually—is an elemental solace. No matter how wealthy we may be, we still can’t bribe our way out of dying. But that isn’t stopping these five ultra-rich immortality financiers.”
Gollner goes on to describe the money that these five fabulously wealthy men are pouring into their quests for immortality.
One of them is a (surprise) California venture capitalist named Paul F. Glenn, who’s a patron of the Methuselah Foundation – an organization funding such endeavors “a regenerative medicine company that applies proprietary technology to ‘print’ new organs.”
Then there’s the Russian multimillionaire who is supporting efforts to back up our minds in cyberspace so we can download them into bionic avatars.
You can't make this stuff up.
“I’m of the anything-is-possible school,” Glenn told Gollner. But apparently that’s not quite accurate, because he and his colleagues appear to be rejecting the simple truth about eternal life.
Someone should tell them all: They already will live forever. The only question is not how, but where.
For the answer, they could start here -- and then simply invest a few bucks, and some serious study, in a good Bible.
