Google is known for many things and while most of them are based on a computer every so often they will pop up with an idea that can only be associated as GoogleX. Calico as it’s called is Google's new science project that looks to bring advancements of life's longevity into the tech era. Arthur D. Levinson is leading the charge and is also a chairman over at Apple, showing that even two companies such as Google and Apple are no match for nature and time.
23andMe is another one of Googles investments that goes about banking the human genome in a database to focus on finding age related disease form and mutate through a persons life. people who are scared of your data being stored though should not risk it, I mean your data is way more important than your health or even life. 23andMe will be a huge step into helping provide Calico with a starting database and then with Google's cloud services and massive data centers, it looks to make vast improvements in helping people live longer in most of our lifetimes.
Though Calico is still in the exploring phases of it’s intended goal, the idea seems hopeful to say the least, unless you are a bit paranoid like an unnamed journalist at TechCrunch. The stride to live forever is nothing new in our short story on this planet to quest for it, but in order to travel the distances of stars and learn the possibilities of the universe we will need to gain a few extra years of life, to say the least.
The question always comes down to after reading something like this, would you live forever if you could? Really think about it for a second, this is forever. Then ask yourself, what would you do with your free time?, all forever of them. Personally I would call myself a time Lord and figure out how to make an old school blue Police Booth bigger on the inside than it was on the outside and travel through space and time, but that’s just me. Leave a comment below with what you think about having Google search for a possibility to live forever.
