“…discover first hand the eternity of Life, Light, and Truth, as well as the illusion of Death, Darkness, and Sin… Though the modern world may know a million secrets, the ancient world knew one–and that one was greater than the million; for the million secrets breed death, disaster, sorrow, selfishness, lust, and avarice, but the one secret confers life, light, and truth. The time will come when the secret wisdom shall again be the dominating religious and philosophical urge of the world… The Dying God shall rise again!” — Manly Hall

An algorithm is a set of instructions implemented for problem solving or computation. Let’s examine some logical instructions for immortality.
Let’s start with the deepest instruction. Many philosophers and other figures of note have agreed, that the power of belief is potent. Affirmations and meditation then affirm the belief, as well as way of life. Focus on life and joy is based in faith; focus on death is fear-based and generates anxiety and pressure. Could death now be the greatest modern farce and irony. That we have the gift of life and then focus on supposedly inevitable death and “heaven.” It looks to me like we live in the heavens! Just look at the sky, or photos from the Hubble telescope. Yes though, there are layers we can’t see. What I’m saying is — I believe we have options.
Humanity seems to be at a point both technologically and spiritually to opt out of death, as determined by the individual, to be able to upgrade and transform within the same life cycle (although many came before to get to this point). And the individual must of course love life and cosmos in order to want to continue. Rest? Bodiless travel? That’s what we have sleep for. For youthfulness and quality of life the individual must be in a regeneration mindset instead of a degenerative one. This implies faith in the body / the self’s ability to heal and learn/evolve. Biological immortality is a great quantum leap and inevitably creates new culture.
