“And this holds immortality?”
Cahaya shook her head.
“Not immortality. You can still die from illness or accident. It just reverses and prevents the degeneration of natural ageing.”
Dalca made a dismissive gesture.
“Immortality in effect. But is humanity ready for it?”
“Of course. It’ll make people value life more as it is no longer ephemeral. It will make them consider how they treat the planet as they themselves, not their descendants, will be living with the consequences.”
Dalca smiled and put down the vial.
“You really don’t understand people very well do you?”
