Evolved sentient such as human species, being part of the process of intertwinement and entanglement with and in the local and non-local cosmos or the greater whole, is endowed or embodied with infinite potentialities of possibilities, including eternal potentiality. And which implies that the greater whole is of infinite potentialities of possibilities and eternal or the whole is far greater than sum of its parts.
And as such, in the search for immortality, scientific distinction need to be made between immortality in the known physical world and immortality potentialities of possibilities beyond the known physical world. Otherwise, the quest for immortality in the known physical world could diminish or damage not only immortality or existence potentialities of immortality beyond the known physical world but also quality, meaningful, and well being in the known physical world. And as well as potentially existence in the known physical world due to harmful environment to nurture and develop body-mind as well as wrong practices such as improper biologic and genetic alteration. And or human and machines integration.
However, in reality, the scientific quest for immortality in the known physical world should be the quest for known physical life longevity since the chemistry, physics,, and biology of immortality in the known physical is impossible due to the essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature. And which is why the nature of immortality potentialities of possibilities is beyond or transcends the known physical world across immaterial realms and worlds. And hence, the nature or existence of the subtle body-mind. In simple words, in order to achieve immortality or eternity, essential meaningful form-formless are needed or required as had briefly simplified and discerned in diverse ways in past discernments. And which clearly implies that life and existence are beyond the known physical world as discerned in most recent discernment https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/philosophy-and-science/on-philosophy-and-science-of-form-and-formless.
Therefore, upmost caution need be taken. And as such, preventive and safeguard actions or implementations and solutions can be found through the scientific quest for the essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature. The efforts would be essential to enrich and elevate life in the known physical world. And beyond.(or would be beneficial to ways of life and practices for quality, meaningful, and well being life as well as the betterment of all in the known physical world. And beyond).
However, without meaningful scientific quest for evidence or empirical data, they can be found within or through self inner transcendent and naturalness-spiritual experience whether through spontaneous experience or skillful means. And through recorded transcendent and naturalness-spiritual empirical experience of the collective throughout history. And including correlated empirical data through modern medicine and science. In simple words, the evidence or empirical data potentialities of possibilities always exist within the greater whole. It just a matter of how open mind, inspired, and aspired the individual and collective want to know them. Knowing required meaningful heartful care and mindful care actions and efforts whether through the scientific method and or naturalness-spiritual practices.
In other words, based on the greater whole essence and nature of being and becoming which implied such as inspirations, aspirations, imagination, creativity, emotion intelligence, free will, and Dharma or embodiment of sentient heartful care and mindful care, nothing prevent the individual and collective from knowing other than themselves. And in particularly, as already mentioned, when the individual and collective are embodied with the greater whole essence, nature, and ground that are being facilitated through the process of dependent and interdependent origination. And dependent and interdependent arising of being and becoming (i.e. universal process of intertwinement and entanglement with and in the local and non-local cosmos or the greater whole). Again, in simple words, the structure, function, and potential for knowing exist. What are needed are meaningful heartful care and mindful care inspirations, aspirations, resources, actions, and efforts.
