What if immortality was possible?

Motherboard explores a unique church in the heart of Hollywood, Florida where the parishioners believe that immortality is attainable through the progression of science and technology. In addition to physical eternal life, they also believe that technology will advance to the point that humans will no longer have to endure the setbacks of a biological body through having their consciousness digitized into a computer.

We spend time with Bill Faloon, the founder of the church and former embalmer who feels that mankind's biggest initiative should be defeating aging and death.
