If you could live to be 150 yrs old would you want to?
I recently read that 20 yrs from now modern medicine could have people living to 150yrs old. I just don't see how you could have much quality of live at that age.
Sometimes it seems it will take me that long to get all those 10,000 little things done that for some reason we all seem to have to do.Having said that - I would only want to live that long if others I know and care for can live that long - otherwise I think I would just roll over and die from loneliness.
As medicine advances, quality of life at an older age should get better. If I could live to 150 and still have my wits about me and a reasonable level of physical ability, then yes, I would.
I would want to live to 150 only if I felt a whole heck of a lot better than I feel now at 60. It sort of snuck up on me all at once - and OUCH
Yes, why not. In any case the maximum life span of 80 or 100 years was not decided by me anyway. The world and all that it has to offer cannot be experienced fully even in 150 years. Moreover modern technology takes us beyond the limits or our very solar system.
I wouldn't want to live past the age that I can physically get out and play, whatever age that may be. A good wonder drug that takes all your aches and pains away would be great.
Yep no doubt about it! I'ss find a way to have a lot of quality of life.
That will give me more time to do that.
By that time science and innovation may have found a way to help us have a better quality life at 150.

Do you feel that people that die at a younger age have it better?When you age and your body starts to betray you, and you know you can no longer do the basic things that you need to live, You are basically waiting to die, do you feel dying before this happens is better?

What's more important to you, quantity of life or quality of life?It seems like everyone is only concerned with living longer. Quality of life issues (especially at old age) aren't often discussed. Would you want to be kept alive even if your body couldn't function anymore?

Do you feel we need to try to stay young forever or age gracefully?

Today I learned, "scientists believe they will have a drug within the next 5-10 years that will extend the average human lifespan to 150 years. Given the retirement age is 65, that would give you an extra 85 years, meaning you would probably have to extend the average working life to 100 or...

With increasing age related problems, the concept of retirement age requires to be re look into. Their is no point in working till 60 when there shall be limited scope of enjoying the retired life after that.

Do you think that in time, to live to 150 years or more will be the norm?
