That is a stupid statement
... the universe is almost infinitely vast ...

The human brain has two centers of consciousness. The inner self is the center of the unconscious mind. The inner self is also the center of consciousness that animals use; instincts. Humans also have a secondary center, called the ego, which is the center of the conscious mind. The brain participates in cellular differentiation control, through sensory nerves near all our cells; two way communication, with the inner self in charge of that task; mainframe part of the brain. The energy needed for the secondary; ego, comes from the inner self. The ego sort of diverts energy from the inner self, that could theoretically be used by the inner self, to extend life, through better cellular differentiation control. As an analogy, say your car; inner self, gets say 30 MPG and you can make it to Disney on 3 tanks. The ego is like a trailer you are pulling. This trailer is important because it has your supplies for camping; individuality. However, you can no longer reach your goal in just 3 tanks, because the trailer lowers your range. The last frontier will be how can you make it to Disney on three tanks, while still pulling the trailer? This may extend life to 150-500 years. Maybe we should not take as much stuff or use more compact stuff. We may need to make sure the tires are new and properly inflated. Maybe we can add aerodynamics to the trailer, and eve tweak the car so it is more fuel efficient. Maybe we can even create hybrid technology where the trailer is built into the car.
