If it ever happens where Humans have the technology to prolong their natural deaths indefinitely through any method, they would use it and be Immortal
in one sense, yet killable by the force of arms with inflicting a wound too grievous where the person dies before any regenerative procedure could
Now think about Ancient Religions. In all of them, there are "Gods" that interact with each other, and are indeed Godly in their abilities and seem
to have never-ending lifespans. That is, unless they are slain by another one of the "Gods". Is that not one of the most common schemes in
the Pagan Religions where there are multiple Gods, particularly the ancient ones like Egyptian and Babylonian and so forth?
In this, there might be some truth. There could be Humans out there, somewhere, that are more advanced by thousands of years than we, who
actually seeded the place, and over such a long time we forgot our origins, and through calamities and lack of support we couldn't maintain our
technology. And so you may have a valid argument there, that maybe these "Space Humans" are advanced enough already to do the things you are saying
that we Homosapiens are "becoming Gods" by just beginning to learn the basic levels of these things, like cloning and organ generation?
Or, a slightly more realistic idea would be that we came from Mars, the Highly Advanced, Godlike Human population there escaped in small numbers to
Earth, which at the time probably looked alot different; surely Mars used to look like the Earth at some point billions of years ago? And then over
time the origins and technology were both lost. I'd like to think that if this happened, they'd be from some place farrr away, and that we're a
part of some distant chain of colonized planets under a benevolent ruler (God), and that his army will come and destroy the army of evil (like in the
Bible), the army of evil being Humans on Earth which are trying to maintain their nationhood and sovereignty even after these superior-Humans landed
on the planet and explained the truth, and that they were here to reintegrate us into the "galactic empire" if you will, lol.
In this scenario, if the superior-Humans from outer space can keep themselves alive for thousands and thousands of years, and they came to Earth to
investigate what happened with their Colony making ship(s) which once came here, they'd interpret any world government that didn't step down
immediately as a "rebel entity" and obliterate said country.
Gee this is sounding so Star Wars.
