Abstract: THE DESIRE TO LIVE FOREVER may be hard-wired as part of our selfish gene makeup but we can have no true knowledge as to whether such a state would be desirable in the long term or not. This paper investigates the intersection of infertility with immortality, and attempts to do so by including all available narrative forms. Common tropes and excessive scientific errors are highlighted with an interdisciplinary leaning as the author is a medical doctor.
