Immortality is the most cherished dream and the biggest wish of any person. People seldom think about it while they are still young, healthy, and full of energy. But when they get some incurable disease or become old, then there is no bigger wish for them than to live longer, put off the inevitable end. No matter what heavenly existence in the after‐life is promised to them by religion, the vast majority of people want to stay and enjoy life here, on Earth, as long as possible. In this paper, one possible way of personal immortality is discussed.
