Life can be said to be the most mysterious and mysterious thing that has appeared since the birth of the universe. Although there are many mysterious things in the universe, such as the secrets of neutron stars, the secrets of black holes, and the secrets of rapid radio bursts. But the secrets of these things are far from being compared with the mysteries of life. Some people believe that the mystery of life is the ultimate mystery of the universe. Only when the mystery of life is completely revealed can we truly understand the universe.
The earth is very fortunate to become a planet of life, and also gave birth to intelligent life human beings. Intelligent life can be said to be the existence at the top of the world of life, the most complex and mysterious life body in life. Human beings are fortunate enough to become the more mysterious intelligent creatures in the world of life. Uncovering the mystery of the human body may be able to truly uncover the mystery of life and thus the ultimate mystery of the universe.
There are many mysteries of the human body, and the most complicated and mysterious one is the mystery of life. I believe many people know that there is no immortal life. Whether it is simple microorganisms or advanced intelligent life forms such as humans, there will be a day of death. From the day we descended into this world, we will face the fate of death in the future. Whether you are a pauper or sitting on the wealth of the world, you will eventually fall into the embrace of death.
It is precisely because death is the ultimate destiny that everyone has to experience, for most ordinary people, they can face death calmly. But for those who are extraordinary, they may not be able to accept this fate. In ancient times, many emperors sat on the whole world and enjoyed the superior power and wealth. They were very afraid of death.
So some emperors wanted to be immortal in their later years, and sent a team to find the elixir of life, or to find some Taoist priests to practice the elixir of life, but the final result is not believed to be known to everyone. So in today’s technological age, are people giving up about the dream of immortality?
Of course not. The rapid development of scientific and technological power has made some people see the hope of longevity. There are many sciences in the world that have been studying the mysteries of life, hoping to realize immortality one day. I believe that everyone can not stop the temptation of longevity, especially those who are at the top of human wealth and power, and hope that they can live longer, and it is best to achieve immortality.
So here is the question: if one day human beings achieve immortality through technology, what will the earth become? Many people may think that it is a lucky thing for human beings to achieve immortality. But for the earth, it may be a disaster, and for the entire human civilization, it may also be a disaster.
Why do you say that? First of all, we must understand that the area of the earth on which humans live is limited, and the resources are limited. Human survival and development are inseparable from resources. According to scientists’ simulation calculations, the number of people the earth can hold is about 10 billion. If this number is exceeded, the earth will not be able to stand it. Not only will the ecology deteriorate faster, but also the resources. Fast consumption.
When the earth’s ecology has completely deteriorated and resources are completely depleted, can human beings survive? The answer is no. At that time, human civilization will come to an end. Immortality will allow us to live longer and experience a longer period of time, but it will completely destroy the earth and let human civilization disappear in the long river of history.
Scientists believe that if human beings truly achieve longevity one day, then the population of the earth will show an explosive growth. At that time, people will not die easily and will achieve immortality. In addition to work, it is estimated that people are created. The population of the earth may exceed 10 billion, 20 billion, or even 100 billion in a few years.
The side effects brought about by the massive increase in population will become more and more serious. The lack of resources makes us unable to survive, and the technological development of human civilization will also be constantly restricted. Some people may say that scientists have achieved immortality, and the development of human science and technology will inevitably accelerate. When we become an interstellar civilization and are no longer tied to the earth and the solar system, the population pressure for growth will no longer exist.
This is true. If human beings become an interstellar civilization, we can colonize outer planets. At that time, let alone 100 billion years, even one trillion people would not be enough for human space colonization and development. If this is the case, then it seems that human beings are still a good thing to achieve immortality? On the surface, this is indeed a good thing, but if we look at it from another aspect, it is not a good thing.
And this other aspect is the evolution of human beings to higher life. I believe many people understand that there is no end to the evolution of life. Although human beings are intelligent and advanced beings, we are still far from being truly powerful. If human beings become an interstellar civilization in the future and need to go beyond the interstellar development, then they need a very strong physical quality.
It should be understood that the environment of the universe and alien planets is very different from the earth’s environment. Even a habitable planet suitable for human survival will not have the same ecological structure environment as the earth. If we do not have a stronger physical fitness, as long as the ecological environment of the alien planet is somewhat different from that of the earth, we may not be able to adapt.
The evolution of human beings is carried out through genetic mutations, and the generation of genetic mutations continues through generations. But if human beings realize immortality and realize immortality, then the change of human gene pool will be very slow, and the efficiency of gene mutation will be greatly reduced. This is very unfavorable to the evolution of mankind.
Let us give an example. If human beings continue their offspring under the law of life and death, after 10,000 years, human genes may achieve a qualitative leap, allowing humans to evolve and grow into higher-level life, thus adapting to the complex cosmic environment. . But if mankind realizes immortality without the constraints of the law of life and death, then it may take a hundred thousand years or even longer for mankind to grow into a higher life.
In this way, the pace of development of human civilization will be greatly slowed down. In the universe, the development speed of a civilization and the evolutionary growth speed of an intelligent race life form are very important. It is necessary to know that there may be a dark forest law in the universe. If humans cannot grow up quickly, they may completely lose their advantage in the future interstellar hegemony, which will lead to the end and disappearance of the entire human civilization.
It can be seen that immortality is of no benefit to mankind. Only under the constraints of the law of life and death can mankind develop faster and grow faster. Only then can it become a powerful interstellar civilization faster and allow human civilization to continue.
Of course, although we do not expect human beings to achieve immortality, with the rapid development of science and technology, there is no problem in increasing the life span of human beings. In fact, for most people, it is more hopeful that they can live a long and healthy life. As long as there is no disease trouble in their life, and they can live peacefully, that is the happiest thing.
