Actually this is not so far fetched as some might think.
When we started out on our journey to extend our lives and improve ourselves one thing became very clear.
Ageing is not uniform across the animal kingdom. There are many instances of life forms that live far in advance of their size or likely life
Though aging is caused by many factors, they all have a common theme.. Cellular degradation. I personally believe that the biological aspects of
cellular degradation can be solved, but I don't think that is what the OP was getting at.
A computer's computational speed is derived by the number of of cycles per second it can reach. The more cycles the more calculations it can do
within a given time frame.
If we were able to some how augment our brains to operate at a higher rate in cycles per second, then time would indeed appear to slow down.
However, I can't see this as being a way to perfect immortality... I think this would be a short burst process and not one that could be simply left
I believe that in the not too distant future this kind of brain implant will be all the rage for sports people, military applications and possibly
But I give you a BIG
For some intelligent thought... You wouldn't believe how many people out there just don't understand how our brain
measures the passing of time.
All the best,
