Different than animals, every human has a choice in making long-term predictions and thus decisions. No reason exists why the disciplined human mind could not ultimately control anything imaginable which it fully comprehends, including its own nature. As people can and do increasingly create knowledge and values to experience earned prosperity and life, they may extend their biological lives by new technologies with no theoretical or proven ultimate limit. All essential advances of our past and present culture have been deeply entangled with the basic goal of extending quality and quantity of life, in the form of business, science and art. The sole possibility of the endeavor of radical life extension, beginning with the remediation of degenerative diseases, makes it a primary moral imperative for humanity. Hence, it must be carried forward unstymied by ambitions of repressive lobbyism and politics or fundamentalist religions to force any individual what she may or may not do with his/her body. It should also not be discouraged by conservative science regarding feasibility, especially since most critique reduces often to speculative and unfounded pessimism, camouflaging deathist traditionalism. As long as theoretically feasible, a most radical and ambitious schedule is important. Even if any schedule particulars should turn out to be too optimistic, each successful step toward the high goal of eliminating aging-related disease and death will have major impacts on many lives.
We look forward to a long and fruitful association!
