“Spring Return Pill?!”
Hearing these three words, Fei Jianzhong’s entire body was stunned for a few seconds and asked tentatively, “What is this? A medicine?”
“Yes!” Lai Qinghua said, “The Spring Return Pill is a medicine, a divine pill immortal pill that incorporates a great divine power.”
Feeling a little absurd, Fei Jianzhong asked him rhetorically, “Then what company is this medicine from? What are the ingredients? What is the principle of the drug? What are the pharmacokinetics and clinical trial reports?”
Lai explained, “There is no company, the ingredients are unknown, and the principle of the drug is not something that someone of my level can understand, and as for the pharmacokinetics and clinical trials, there is even less.”
Speaking of this, Lai Qinghua said, “By the way, for pharmacokinetics, I can tell you through my personal feelings, after this miracle drug enters your body, you will feel like time is turning back in your body, allowing you to find the kind of state your body was in ten years ago, or even twenty years ago.”
“As for clinical trials, I am an example of a clinical trial.”
When Fei Jianzhong heard this, he felt more and more that this matter was too mysterious to be true, and immediately said in exasperation, “Lai Qinghua, Lai Qinghua, you have nothing better to do than to make fun of me. …… I am over ninety years old! You told me to find the elixir? Do you think I haven’t read the Journey to the West?”
Lai Qinghua said smilingly, “How do you know there are no immortal pills in this world?”
Fei Jianzhong said discontentedly, “Isn’t the so-called immortal elixir just some mythological stories and legends recorded in feudal superstition? Do you think I’m a three-year-old child who believes in these ……”
When I took it, the feeling of being transformed into a new person was engraved in my bones! If you want to be like me and find a chance to prolong your life, the only thing that can help you is the Spring Return Pill. As for the medical research you have invested in, I can tell you clearly that although they are very useful to society, they are no longer useful to you.
When Lai Qinghua said this, Fei Jianzhong was momentarily speechless at the other end of the phone.
How could he not be clear about the latter part of what Lai Qinghua said.
Human brain research was being done by many rich people all over the world, including those young tycoons in the internet industry, who also hoped to achieve immortality of consciousness by interconnecting the human brain with computers, but there had not been any real breakthrough in this field so far.
As for organ transplants, global medicine has developed for so many years, and although the level of organ transplants has been greatly improved, a human being is not like a car or a machine where every part can be replaced, so even if organs can be kept young by constant transplants, the brain, bones, blood vessels, nerves, all of these, cannot be completed completely replaced.
Therefore, organ transplants can save a patient’s life when one or more organs become diseased, but they can hardly prolong the patient’s life.
What can a 100 year old body do with a 20 year old heart?
It is likely that the blood vessels throughout the body have long since reached the end of their useful life and have become extremely weak.
It is likely that just one slightly violent beating of the heart will cause a brain haemorrhage and rapid death.
So, this route is also currently not feasible.
As for cryonics, it’s even more bullsh*t.
There is simply no certainty that a person can be successfully revived after years of freezing.
This option is tantamount to putting the unknown on hold and leaving it to the future.
If there is a way to resurrect him in the future, he will be awakened from the freeze.
If there is no way to revive him in the future, then he may remain frozen until the end of the world.
It was precisely because of the multiple directions in which he had invested that there had been no substantial breakthroughs, that Fei Jianzhong was even more eager for Lai Qinghua’s chance.
Only, how could he have imagined that Lai Qinghua’s secret would sound so ridiculous?
However, the tone of Lai Qinghua’s voice did not sound like he was joking at all, so he looked at it squarely and asked seriously, “Qinghua, you and I have been close friends for many years, let me just ask you one question, is this really true?”
