It was a triumph. The greatest marvel that the world has ever seen.
At least that’s what they said. It changed the world, and I fear that it did for the worst.
What good is it to live forever? It can still be ended by a terrible accident. The world has become a prison. A prison full of unaging people in an aging planet.
I have seen it all. I’ve been there since the beginning. I have seen the thrills people get from receiving the treatments. It always starts like that, but it ultimately ends in boredom. You can become younger and then older again. After a few lifetimes of aging up and down, just living becomes nothing new. It’s just another day. Another decade. Another century.
I have seen it all because I was among the first to receive the treatment. I was there when the “latest discovery” was discovered. While it seems like forever ago, I can still remember it fresh in my mind. I remember the first announcement on the news. I remember being injected with the stem cells. I remember my first day as a teenager – again. I remember, because I have kept a careful record of it from the beginning. The scientific community called it “The Infinity Code”, and I can remember being one of the first in line to try it.
That’s about all I have for the introduction. I might need a new name for the story. Thanks, Emma Young…. 😛
