Google unveils its next big project: Immortality — or at least radical life extension

Prophecy Sign:  Manipulation of life's length

Well, like Google doesn't have enough on its plate already, (internet search engines, mapping the entire globe, working with national spy agencies), the giant corporation now wants to help bring about human immortality, or at the very least, extended life.  Very interesting considering that the book of Revelation records an odd prophecy which suggests that some people during the Revelation will simply not be able to die, though they seek out death.  Rather sounds like a zombie scenario doesn't it?  Which may explain the recent Hollywood infatuation with anything Zombie, (The Walking Dead, World War Z, etc).

During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. Revelation 9:6 NIV

Google unveils its next big project: Immortality — or at least radical life extension
Google has created a new company, Calico, with a mighty task: beat back death, or at least ensure that people live in better health for longer. Calico will focus on health-related issues, specifically aging and related diseases. Art Levinson, the former CEO of Genentech, will serve as Chief Executive Officer. In a posting on his Google Plus page, Google CEO Larry Page acknowledged that a medical-research firm is well outside Google’s usual focus. “But as we explained in our first letter to shareholders, there’s tremendous potential for technology more generally to improve people’s lives,” he wrote. “So don’t be surprised if we invest in projects that seem strange or speculative compared with our existing Internet businesses.” Any investments in Calico, he added, will remain small in comparison to Google’s core business operations. Aging is something that affects every living organism, of course, and it seems as if Calico will tackle the host of degradations that come along with it, from decreased mental acuity to the inability to physically move from Point A to B. In a separate press release, Page summarized the project as “moonshot thinking.”
