I'd venture it's an immature endeavor. What ever anyone will experience at that age, let's say 1000, it won't be anything similar to how they experience life now when they're thinking about it. We weren't made to live that long, period. My conceited self, shitpostting my opinion here, says if anyone wants to believe such an idea is possible, then they have a child-like umderstanding of the cycle of life and death, creation and destruction, balance, and all that mumbo jumbo. Immortality isn't sustainable, all things staying the same. In some lights it reminds me of those attempts to bring back mammoths...

Anywho, I'd be interested if you could dig up your source. Hope this doesn't sound too harsh, I'm actually more in agreement with you.
