According to leading “futurist” Dr. Ian Pearson that living forever could become a viable option by the year 2050

In a new report, he suggests that anyone born after 1970 has a good chance of achieving immortality thanks to the rapid advances in technology.

However, he does point out that the rich and famous will get there first.

The rest of us will likely have to wait until the 2060s or 2070s to be able to afford it.

"Most people on middle-class incomes and reasonable working-class incomes can probably afford this in the 2060s. So anyone 90 or under by 2060," said Dr. Pearson.

Dr. Pearson argues that the ability to live forever will come from advances in technologies like genetic engineering and computer simulations.

He suggests that in the future it will be possible to renew body parts that have given out or have your consciousness transferred into a Matrix-like virtual world.

“A long time before we get to fix our bodies and rejuvenate it every time we feel like, we'll be able to link our minds to the machine world so well, we'll effectively be living in the cloud," Dr. Pearson said.

"No one wants to live forever at 95 years old, but if you could rejuvenate the body to 29 or 30, you might want to do that.”
