We may find the ability to read our ancient lives and unlock our past.. what could the future you become?
It makes me wonder if this is why TPTB are accelerating their depopulation efforts?

All seriousness though, immortality with population is begging for regulation (unless they teraform mars, which i can't see happening for a couple more centeries)...

Something big? You mean like thousands of years of medical advancements coming to a head? Sounds about right to me.
And to say "you can't cheat death" seems pretty shortsighted, like telling the Wright brother they'll never fly. Or telling Neil Armstrong he'll never walk on the moon - or at least bounce around in front of cameras in a studio
