From the Author
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to never age? As long as some disease or accident didn't take your life, you could live forever. You would be virtually immortal. Imagine what that would be like.
Living forever seems universally attractive in theory. But some scientists say death is essential to evolution. Others tell us immortals would watch the world decay because of human overpopulation. Trees would all be taken and oceans fished empty. Wild animals would be mostly gone, their habitats taken by man.
Suppose you stumbled upon the formula for a magical potion that stops the aging process, and you became the first virtual immortal. Consider challenges you might face.
Unless you kept it secret, others would find how to achieve the same. Wouldn't your immortality be almost too strong a secret to keep?
Sharing the secret would grant billions spectacularly long lives, making all but the poorest virtually immortal. All would eventually die some horrible death--but never from old age.
Imagine how attractive eternal youth would be. People fork over huge amounts to extend their lives by months. What would those folks pay to live indefinitely in youthful bodies?
The greed unleashed by virtual immortality could launch a tsunami of evil, making the drug wars seem like a mere trickle.
To live as a virtual immortal without sharing, you would need to keep it secret and live a lie. You would have to fake your death over-and-over again and continually live in fear of discovery. You could neither maintain a career nor have a permanent family. You couldn't even keep an identity.
Most likely you would spend your life deterring would be profiteers, steps away from a quagmire of greed, deceit, and unlawfulness.
