Do you really want to live for 500 years?
New research suggests that scientists are getting closer to unlocking the secrets of aging. Some claim to have extended the life of a worm to the human equivalent of living 400-500 years.
The question is: Do you really want to live that long? You'd probably get to knock a lot off your bucket list, but at some point it's unsustainable, right? We'd run out of resources if there was no natural death rate; however, long-term space travel might be made feasible.
I personally would not want to live that long, & there's is a huge difference between a worm and an aging human. I'll be happy if I make it to a healthy 80 years old.
I want to live as long as my body is healthy and I am not dependent on others. I think that would be around 70-75 if not for an accidental death before that.
