Of course its something we should address. But we will have time to. What we shouldnt do is halt all research into anti ageing. That would condemning future generations to death and not giving them a choice.
Lets get the research done and have the tools in place. Then we can decide or future generations.
First of all you wont live 1000 years all at once. You live 1 year at a time. So think about it like this;
I myself feel good this year and I dont feel like I want to die right now. If I feel the same way next year then I probably wont want to die then either. So aslong as you are Healthy in your mind and body. Then you probably will not want to die. You will just live 1 day at a time, 1 year at a time.
You will still be able to retire, but it will be for say. 10 years. Then after that you may want to start a different career. Maybe you want to be a rock start for 20 years, then take a break and become a computer scientist.
Productivity will go up, Older people will not be a burden on society as they will be healthy and active.
This has got to be a joke.
As for the aging thing, I personally dont think this guys going to come up with reasonable solutions but someone will extend our life to the point where we have very long lives and personally I dont want to live past 200.
Personally I would like to live for a 1000 years if possible..... depending on circumstances... the real crappy thing about this is that everything will cost more, instead of saving a year for a car you now have to save for half a decade.
Pull the planet over, I want to get off!
Okay, maybe the Science category is a stretch for this one.
