So isn't cancer by that logic; the opposite effect of immortality?
Cancer - Infinite bad cells
Immortality - Infinite good cells
But, not quite, IMO. It's more like Cancer is uncontrolled cell replication which results in DNA flaws happening much more frequently, and faster
than the body's natural defenses can handle. Whereas, Immortality would be a regular reproduction of failing cells, resulting in less DNA replication
damage, and at a pace the body's natural defenses can cleanly handle.
I'd much rather follow a group of dogs in a parade, than a group of elephants, if you know what I mean.
