Genetic engineering, stem cell technology, nanobiotics, renewable energies, lab-grown foodstuffs, all technologies working for the benefit of mankind ( and the odd multinational ). Some of them are still pipe dreams, some in development, some already working, but it is possible that ( assuming were are not wiped out by some calamity ) that some SFN readers may benefit from fit and extended lives.
So, if say in the next 20 to 30 years you are given the opportunity to live longer, say for a 1000 years what would you do? Would you want to? Could you afford it? In such a scenario would we have to instigate a Logan's run type of cut-off, to allow new blood to have a go? Would we have a world where only the rich can afford to live? ( sound familiar? ) I'd be interested to know.
Me? assuming I'd still retain my good looks, I'd give it a go, but truth be known when hit say 750 I'd be getting a bit cheesed off with it all…. mind you it would be interesting to see how the Renault drivers cope with roundabouts in the sky!
