The Future Is Beautiful: Company Creates Human Sleeves For Living Forever
A step above plastic surgery
Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, but what do you do when you aren’t satisfied at the reflection looking back at you? For years, thousands (if not millions) of individuals have taken to going under the knife to make preferred changes to their appearance. Whether it means higher cheekbones, fuller lips, flatter stomachs or thinner jaws, it’s been relatively easy to find a doctor that’s more than willing to do the procedure—if you can afford the price tag.
But more often than not, unless you’re really lucky, you don’t get the results you want. Or even if you are thrilled at what you see when the bandages first come off, time still has a way of getting to you. Your the skin on your neck sags, lines appear and gravity takes its toll.
Others who don’t believe in plastic surgery have opted to give the illusion of their ideal look instead. People have learned how to dress in order to hide what they want to hide and highlight what they want to highlight. The shortest girl in the group can look like the tallest woman with the right lines, silhouettes and footwear. A man without a natural jaw can fake one with the right amount of facial hair.
Then, of course, there is the option to work with makeup instead. Your brows not thick? Draw them on. Your lips aren’t pouty? Line outside your lip line. Don’t have long lashes? Glue some on.
It’s not easy to look your best, especially when you aren’t satisfied with what God gave you. But what if you could just slip into an entirely new body—a body that you chose? It seems like now, you can.
Psychasec’s recently introduced the idea of sleeves, which is, to put it simply, a spare body you can transfer your consciousness to. Theoretically, you could have the physique you’ve always worked for, the face you’ve always dreamed of and the life you’ve always wanted. And what’s more, you could live forever—just keep transferring your consciousness, your memories and your thoughts into a different sleeve. Hey, no body lives forever but maybe our minds can.
Imagine waking up the same person, except you’re happier with how you look. Imagine having decades of knowledge and wisdom within you, but moving with the energy and body of a 20-year-old. Imagine the possibilities, what you could do and where you could go. It’s within reach—just grab on.
