Humans have been trying to cheat death right from their beginning. Have they succeeded. I should say "somewhat". well, we have invented organ replacement, which was unthinkable a hundred years ago. So, a person who had some kind of problem would certainly have died at that time. But, now we are able to replace the organ and are on our way in making artificial ones too. In that way, we really cheated death. At least we were able to stop death and postpone it , right? But, as always, there is an argument other way around also. By, inventing lot of medicines and all, the health rate never actually grow up, but we invented new diseases also. By, inventing new ways of transportation, war, entertainment we actually inventing new ways to death as a byproduct. But, we cannot simply discard the concept of cheating death. What we thought impossible, 1000 years ago, is possible now. Who knows?, after a 1000 years, if we survive, man kind will be able to cheat death and actually stop death. So, whatya think?
