Getting older drastically increases your chances of DYING so I would say that YES, IT IS THAT BAD and the fear of aging is entirely rational. But aging doesn’t HAVE to be bad if we could medically repair all the damage that aging causes to our bodies … We could have eternal youth with the strategy proposed by Aubrey de Grey (SENS Foundation) … But until we effectively CURE AGING, then getting older is nothing to celebrate.
Many people are trying to minimize the problem of aging so they can feel better about their own aging. These people are in a state of denial. Looking honestly at the situation of aging, how can it be considered anything else but horrible? Instead of lying to ourselves for comfort, we should admit that Getting Old Sucks and we should make regular donations to SENS (http://sens.org/donate)
It is definitely possible to cure aging. Common sense should tell us that it’s only a matter of time before science can achieve Indefinite life extension. The real question is, will the cure come in time for you and me? We must MAKE IT HAPPEN and we must refuse to fail. via Eternal Life Fan Club http://ift.tt/1InlM3r
