Immortal Micro-organisms and Human Immortality

Updated on June 9, 2018
SANJAY LAKHANPAL profile image

Life is full of several mysteries and the man has always tried to delve deeper to unravel them.

Death and immortality

The man has always wondered about death and the mysteries surrounding the life after death. He has always tried to find the answers that,

“What is Death?”

“Why a person Dies?”

“What happens after Death?”

“What is Rebirth?”

“Why a man could not become immortal?”

These queries have always raked the mind of the man since ages. Some of the ancient sages and the people with a mission have devoted their entire life to find the Elixir of life. Some of the Alchemists dedicated their entire lives to make a potion to become immortal.

The science is steadily advancing to reveal the mystery of immortality. Several groups of scientists are working in a phased manner to make the man immortal.

It has been found that a tablet could be developed to stop ageing.

Mummies

The people of the ancient Greek and Egypt had developed a special potion which could preserve the bodies of their dead ones for thousands of years. This achievement is not meagre on the part of the ancient people.

Endeavors of the Modern Man

For the last hundred of years and during the recent decades too, the scientists have discovered the remedies for several deadly diseases which took a heavy death toll of man and beasts.

The medical science has given a new direction to the life in general and premature death due to diseases and epidemics in particular.

The man has tried in a sense tried to defeat death, but it has remained inevitable. The science has partially succeeded to delay death but has failed to avoid it completely. The scientists have often felt this helplessness and the philosophers term it a “Destiny”.

So death is the only eternal truth for the human beings and everyone is destined to die.

Some scientists are still busy in their endeavor to defeat the challenge of death. They are experimenting to discover the ways to become immortal. They believe that there are certain micro-organisms on earth which are immortal. These micro-organisms never die. Even some of these exist in volcanoes.

In their pursuit of immortality, the scientists have found that the cells of such micro-organisms survive due to their ability to adjust and protect themselves from damages caused by the ever-changing environment.

Recent Discovery of Immortal Organism

In 2009, the Russian scientist, Dr. Anatoli Brouchkov, the head of the Geocryology Department, Moscow State University, discovered the 3.5 million years old microscopic organisms in the Siberian permafrost.

The discovery was made at a site known as Mammoth Mountain. These microorganisms were found in the ice preserved brain of the carcass of a woolly mammoth.

He was surprised of the outcome of the amazing results of his experiments and sensed that this micro-organism could open new vistas of longevity and the resultant immortality.

These microorganisms named Baccillus F, began their lives a million years before the first human being evolved on earth.

A little amount of Bacillus F could be found in the drinking water supplied in Siberia. This could elucidate the reason why the average lifespan of the people of the region is long.

What is a Permafrost?

Permafrost is a permanently frozen soil, sediment, rock or other deposit, characteristic of arctic and some subarctic regions. Its classification is solely based on temperature, not moisture or ground cover. It is the perennially frozen subsoil. Permafrost with no water, and thus no ice, is termed dry permafrost. The upper surface of permafrost is called the permafrost table.

The Immortal Bacillus F

The ability of Bacillus F to regenerate the cells could hold the key to several miracle cures including death itself.

The scientists experimented on animals and found the fertility boosting power in Bacillus F. The aged female mice injected with Bacillus F produced babies after the end of their reproductive process and the plants healed themselves. Further experiments were conducted on human cells and similar inferences were drawn.

The Miracle

Thereafter Dr. Anatoli Brouchkov injected Bacillus F to himself, and found that “he has not had flu since then, and he has also been able to work harder and longer without even getting tired”. He further says that it has not been ascertained that how Bacillus F works on human body, but its effects are apparent.

This discovery could help the scientists to prolong the lives of human beings, if once it is determined that how Bacillus F endures death and decay.

Why does it happen?

So far it has been found that Bacillus F gives out biologically active substances throughout its life. These substances were held responsible for activating the immune systems of the animals under experiment.

Epidemiologist Dr. Viktor Chernyavsky has termed the discovery of Bacillus F, " A scientific sensation", which could prove to be the "Elixir of life".

Ginsing Herb for Youthfulness

A herb named Ginseng called eleuthero grows in the forests of Russia and Siberia. It has been in use in Russia and Asia for centuries as a medicine.

The people of China use it to retain the youthfulness. A review titled “Puzzle Promise and Cure for ageing” was published in a journal “Nature”. It says that in the coming decades, it would be possible to increase the lifespan of man.


Immortality of Jelly Fish

Tulitopsis Nutriculla, a jellyfish is found in the seas. Technically this fish never dies, unless killed or eaten by others. That is why it is called immortal jellyfish. It has the capability to return from old age to infant age.

The man could also become immortal if the scientists become successful to find the mystery behind the immortality of jellyfish.

Indian Ayurveda and Immortality

The concept of longevity and partial immortality has been achieved by a set of therapies in “Kayakalp” or “Physical Rejuvenation” as explained in Indian Ayurveda.

The treatment detoxifies the body, reverses metabolic activities and nourishes the body by helping in the formation of the new cells faster than the process of decay of old ones. The aging gets reversed when the new cells form faster than the decay of old cells.

This exclusive practice was undertaken only by kings and sages as they could devote time to patience and discipline.

How did it work?

Here the human body is embalmed in special earth and herbs for some time for few days to rejuvenate the youthful charm and glow of the skin. The anti-ageing herbal tonic could also remove wrinkles from the old and withered skin of the person under treatment. It could reverse the physical degeneration caused by aging.

But the actual prescription and the contents of this concoction are not available and at present only partial success could be achieved.

The Process of Kayakalapa

The person is first isolated from visitors and even sunlight in a specially built closed hut.

Then body exfoliation is done by certain herbal pastes, leeches, sweating and vomiting followed by the intake of herbs and certain salts. After complete detoxification the minimal diet once a day or even fasting on liquids especially milk is followed.

Thereafter the tissues are nourished by massages, mineral baths, and oils. The fresh juices boost the immune system. The free radical damage is repaired with an antioxidant Soma, but nobody knows what it is? It is the most necessary herb missing from the treatment.

After morning spa therapies comes the meditation and Yoga for the spiritual and emotional well being. Then the person comes out transformed with new teeth, new hair, fair complexion, supple skin, improved vision, fresh virility, sharp memory, focused concentration. If practiced properly it could give immortality.

Scientific Reports

“Daily Telegraph” reported that during a research at Buck Institute California, Dr Judith Kempis told that there is no doubt from the present results about the simple organism that the lifespan could be either increased or decreased.

It has already been found in several studies that a man could always remain young if the genetic process which reveals the effects of ageing is stopped.

A report published in Cell journal says that the increasing effects of ageing could be a part of a genetic plan and not a result of physical activities.

Could a Man become Immortal

      Thanks, Alexander James Guckenberger for the revisit. You are absolutely right that positive human endeavors should be made, but man developed nuclear power for destruction too. Dr. Anatoli Brouchkov took a great risk by injecting Bacillus F to himself. I wonder what will happen, if the man becomes immortal.

      Sanjay, 3.5 million years is a very long time. I hope that more people apply the potential of such discoveries. There are so many possibilities, but someone has to push human progress forwards with the information we are gathering. You're article is awesome! Keep up the good work.

      Thanks, Alexander James Guckenberger for the visit and the comment. You are absolutely right. Extremophiles are the organisms that can survive in extreme physical or geochemical conditions detrimental all living organisms on earth. They live in conditions like intense heat; highly acidic, alkaline and saline environments; extreme pressure and extreme cold. They are often found on the rocks near the hydrothermal vents. On the other hand, mesophiles or neutrophiles are found in the moderate environment. But the lifespan of more than 3.5 million years of Bacillus F is a miracle.

      Interesting and fascinating article on the discovery of the micro-organism. Being a person of faith, I believe man is immortal - a spiritual being that will live on eternally.

      Extremophiles also lend credence to the possibility of expanding life onto other worlds.
