Obviously we cant have everyone becoming immortal or just the rich people becoming immortal. However being able to cure diseases and preventing birth defects would be extremely useful and helpful.

What's wrong with the rich becoming immortal? Means their money will be all spent back to the people! And they have the option of better healthcare, so they should receive it! /s

The movie Elysium is a perfect example of this. In my opinion immortality is not ideal because if there is no death, sooner or later the world will be over populated.  If there is a single person that gains immortality, everyone will want immortality rich or poor and it will be chaos.

While I don't think that it is possible for any living organism to last literally forever (factoring in all of the myriad variables aside from aging), a much longer life span would definitely serve anyone with the capacity to live a comfortable life.

I think by the end of the century, robotics will have advanced far enough that what we think of us jobs, work, and careers will begin to fade away. So, perpetual retirement.

This is, as it were, a pipe dream.

It shall never happen.

Just like the Byzantine Empire rising from the ashes.

The Byzantine Empire is rightfully concluded, but the Holy Roman Empire shall rise again, just like the Holy Roman Church.

Yes. Just like flying was impossible. Just like instantaneous communication across the globe was impossible. Just like curing illnesses was impossible. Just like cloning was impossible.

Cloning has failed. It is a grave scientific perversion - cloning. It has been attempted, and it has only resulted in deformities and disease.

Have you not heard of a certain lamb that was cloned? It was quite miserable from what I have heard. Obviously, that is because it was conceived unnaturally and therefore it developed improperly.
