It is said that the conceptions of automata
and even the attempt of creating lives through technologies
appeared as early as over three thousand years ago in ancient Greek mythologies.
So if you were to ask whether I believe in it,
I would say, consider their perpetual search for the meaning of life by ways of philosophy and what not,
they should well have been intrigued by immortality.
Thus, it would simply be instinctive of them to go about understanding human’s ability to attain eternal lives
via different means including that of science.
Perhaps in the near future,
robots will supersede mankind and emerge through some form of immortality.
