Okay, I've been back to watching, my 'role model' Michio Kaku.
And he supposed the question theoretically upon manhattenese'. lol.
That if there was an elixer, that promised them the ability to live forever blah blah blah.
I blah for a reason.
I wonder, sadly at that, (for the sake it would never happen
