    As a child, when I first heard of the atom and had it explained to me, I wondered if within an atom there might be another universe. Or maybe an object was a universe.

    Has anyone ever looked into a mirror facing another mirror, and then seen what appears to be a never ending series of reflections within a reflection. This music brought this to mind.

    I think that whatever the mind can conceive can be brought to reality. It may take much thought and analysis, possibly by many people, and over a long period of time, but the imagined can become reality. Never fail to dream, consider the possibilities.

      My take?

      Please, be selective and abstain from dreaming about attempting to accomplish certain things.

      Not all things imagined can be accomplished, regardless of resources spent towards that endeavor.

      Cure for cancer? Love it. Sure, let's keep trying, especially that many cancer cases are the result of man-made disruptions to the environment.

      However: Cure for death? — as in "immortality" ? Nah.

      We should work towards living better — not longer.

      There is a fine line between taking care of one's self in order to live a healthier life — which might or might not translate into added years to one's lifespan, which then might or might not translate into such things as more time to enjoy accomplishing a particular project, raising a family, and so on, and obsessing about the fountain of youth.

      By the way: Even the "angels" were ordered not to cross a certain barrier and to venture into the realm of GOD. They failed to abide by the directive and they were all sent to EARTH in the form of Adam.

      I'm just the messenger.

        There are limits!

        I may have gotten carried away, but the answer to some problems, evade solution for a long time. Finding a solution sometimes is a matter of trying a sufficiently large number of varying attempts before the best or only solution is found. And sometimes a discovery can not precede another discovery. Take the mouse trap. Where would it be if someone had not created the metal spring that operates it.

        To consider a cure for cancer, is like considering a cure for the common cold. The common cold, if I am not mistaken, is caused by ever evolving viruses. I once read that it is unlikely that a person will get a cold twice from the same virus. The cold is not caused by a single virus, but from a class of viruses. And they mutate all the time. However, I did find the following item: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/sc...y-2122607.html.

        I have read, in the past, and I don't remember where, that many cancers may start with a virus. Who knows, maybe by limiting the damage caused by viruses, they may find that some cancers may be reduced.

        Too often, medical researchers run in packs. Most pursue whatever is in vogue. Creative and constructive thinking, like unique art, requires individuality.

        As for immortality in the physical sense, it seems to me that the thoughts and concepts suggested by Dr Dahesh, make mortality more acceptable. I'm not in a hurry to move on, because I feel like I have purpose in the here and now. But when the time comes, I think I am better prepared for the next step. Death is just another event, like birth, maturation, having a career. I'm sure I'll be a little nervous when the time comes, but I try to go through each day I am here as though I am preparing for the inevitable.

        And last, parents do not want a child that is ill prepared or too young, to experience sex. I use this as an illustration of why there should be barriers. But the parent should prepare the child for the day that sex would be appropriate. I think, there might be considerable debate about who bears the responsibility for preparation of the self for taking the next step when we are speaking of adults. And this last thing I hesitate to mention, because as a parent, I know I have failed at times to punish or to allow the natural consequences to have the effect that they should. But, the more responsibility the child bares for a forbidden or dangerous behavior, the more severe the punishment. And as adults, both consequences and pushishment become the reward for our acts. There is no parent to blame.
