Hey everyone! First time posting on here, hope I've posted to the right place. So I've been watching this relatively new TV show called Forever, where the protagonist is immortal. Then cruising the section of science videos on youtube, I came across this one:

It ends with the concept of biological immortality and its worth a watch, but it got me thinking about how feasible it is. I've done a fair bit of reading about telomere shaving and calorie restriction prolonging life by reducing the aging process, but do you think halting or pausing aging all together in humans would be possible and if so, care to venture a guess for a time frame?
