the differences arent that big actually. travelling via ship vs aircraft..yeah whatever. but defeating death is the fucking endgame, its the ultimate goal for every human. you really think we gonna have this in the next 50years lol? thats ridiculous. lets just look back at what we had 50 years ago and what we have got today and evaluate the progress. 50 years ago we had television - today we still have the same shitty tv only with a higher resolution. 50 years ago we had cars - today we still have the same shitty cars only with better motors etc...
Those ships were made out of wood that rotted, it took months to travel, and it was pushed by GUSTS OF WIND. Supersonic jets take hours for the same distance, and powers itself in any direction, and can shoot missles out of the sky with smaller missles automatically. Maybe they are similar because people ride in them? Sorry that is not good enough for you.
We have self-driving cars, electric cars, connected to satellites 24/7. There are 3d holographic TVs you can walk around, TVs connected to infinite streaming internet media that are controlled by voice.
If you want to think very generally, these things are alike because people like those products, but if you think about the engineering progress there has been tons. And all this progress is adding up more and more. 50 years ago it was just imagination that someone could build robots smaller than atoms and control them when they are in the body but now its real. The science we need to end death is around 20 years old, but those years were spent in introduction and perfecting understanding. Now we can put it use. We are at the end game thats why I made this thread and said your mind better be blown. Our tools are fucking with the very base of life nowadays.
