Could we condemn criminals to suffer for hundreds of years? Biotechnology could let us extend convicts' lives 'indefinitely'
Life extension tech could mean prisoners will serve longer sentences
Time distortion pill could make people feel like they were in prison longer
Another suggestion is uploading the criminal's mind to a digital realm
It would then possible to speed up the rate at which an uploaded mind run
Running it a million times faster than normal would enable the uploaded criminal to serve a 1,000 year sentence in eight-and-a-half hours
‘Some crimes are so bad they require a really long period of punishment, and a lot of people seem to get out of that punishment by dying,’ Dr Roache told Ross Andersen in Aeon magazine.
