Eternal life is ingrained in the collective human consciousness, having been present in literature and myths for [[OlderThanDirt as long as they've been around]]. Literally. ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh'' (the oldest heroic epic known to the modern world) is, in large part, about the titular character's search for a way to live forever.
