Can You Live Forever?

I would like to live forever and I want the same opportunity for everyone, provided we take the responsibility of extended lives seriously. Movements such as transhumanism, organizations such as the Methuselah Foundation and scientists based in numerous fields are working to extend human lives and, more importantly, human health beyond the years we currently enjoy.

Tonight I watched an episode of Curiosity that explored, through a futurist lens, whether we will be able to extend human lives indefinitely. It’s an accessible extrapolation of existing technologies and scientific understandings into what might be possible in our future. I believe we have an obligation to support these advances so that our lives and those of people in the future can include more time to enjoy and improve our world.
