Want to know something scary? It's actually already just right around the corner.
But not in the physical sense we think of, I have read some interesting articles (awhile back) on this and Nano-tech. It's getting closer and more advanced to the point where small robots can scan different areas inside your brain for neural pathways or all sorts of things then essentially upload your consciousness into a computer, all your memories, personality, everything. Of course, this is still fairly far away from being reality.
So in a sense, when this is possible which could be in 10-25 years, everything that makes you up (not physically) can be uploaded to a computer and ta-da, immortality. Mind you, viruses, hardware damage etc can end that in a flash.
Now more on point, would I want to live forever? No. But If I could live 50-100 years longer? I think I would actually want that. So long as after 100 I still look and feel relatively young lol
