In today's world it is normally assumed the average person will live to be about eighty years of age. Because of modern medicine and lifestyle changes, our life span has risen tremendously over the last several years.
Many of the illness of the past no longer affect us, smallpox, polio, tuberculosis,and many other diseases are no longer a factor in most peoples live. For the most part, women no longer die during childbirth, and because of safer work environments, many are no longer killed due to work related accidents.
All of these factors have lead to a more enjoyable and longer lifespan for the average human being. But my question is, why do we die at all?
Scientific evidence has proven our body rebuilds itself at least every seven years. Many organs and cells, such as the stomach replace themselves much more often than that. The stomach, for example, replaces itself every four months. If it didn't the large amount of acid in the stomach required to digest the food we eat would destroy it in little or no time.
If our cells replace themselves this quickly, then why do we ever die? It only makes sense that if every cell in our body is continuously renewing itself we should live forever, nothing in our body is over seven years old.
There is a fly in the ointment for a couple of reasons, our cells retain a memory from the previous cell, it remembers the pain or injury that was brought to the particular part of the body, thus the new cell takes on the identity of the former cell and continues on the path of destruction.
Also, death has become a natural part of life, gone are the days of Methuselah and other biblical characters who seemed to live forever. We all assume we are going to die after a certain amount of time spent on this plane of existence.
Our subconscious mind or super mind only obeys the commands we give it, thus our subconscious believes we need to die after a certain period of time spent on this planet. We are continuously sending it messages concerning our health and other beliefs we may have. Thus it becomes ingrained in our subconscious what we believe should occur in our lives.
If we would want to live forever, we would need to consciously train our subconscious mind to the possibility of living forever, that it would be a certainty and would be the expected outcome. As a result our bodies would never age and we could live forever or as long as we wanted, enjoying perfect health as we traveled along life's path.
After thousands of years of believing to the contrary, it would probably take some evolving to make this come about. But perhaps in some far off future we will learn to live forever, but is that what we really want?
