What's the more likely key to eternal life?

Biotech or engineering?

But biotech only focuses on keeping our rotting carcasses alive, and one might argue that it's a losing battle.

There's literally a million things that can go wrong inside and outside our bodies. Muscle tissue, CNS, bone structure, inner organs, circulation - if just a one or two things are compromised, the entire organism is at risk.

On the other hand, biomechatronics GUARANTEE eternal life on one simple condition - that we can safely connect our nervous system to artificial receptors. That's just one simple discovery and bam - eternal life.

We could take the cognitive part out to not make stomach bacteria feel left out. But eternal life just wouldn't be as fun as a vegetable.

The question should be, whats more likely key to eternal life, faster?
With enough time we may be able to develope bio and eng enough to achieve eternal life.
There are important questions:
Is it possible to produce artificially the shell to host our "memories"? (talking about machines here).
Is it possible to keep our bodies alive forever?, if not, can we "clone our memories" into a biological host?

>can we "clone our memories" into a biological host?

That seems bleak.

You would still die, so you wouldn't get to enjoy eternal life.

Your clone would be a stranger to you, so why would you care if he got to live forever as a computer or cyborg.
