    Ending aging is a horrible idea. Can you imagine if people live forever. dictators and world leaders who never die would hold onto power forever.

    Not aging seems good on the face of it however. Once you have experienced all major life events there is not much to look forward to. I think most people would become tired of the same thing for years. Other then older people who say I’m ready to go it’s not all about them being old. I feel it’s about they have just had enough saw enough and did enough

    The biggest reason why I want to keept living for a few hundred Years is because I want to really see how everything pans out for humanity in the future. Will we be able to colonize other plantes ? Will climate change end us ? There are so many questions that won't be answered in my lifetime....

    Without death, life has no meaning. The fear of leaving this world somedays is what drives people to leave a mark, to be remembered.

    I think human lifespan has very little to do with the human condition, as we still perceive time the same way and our brains still will only plan till the next high, the next reward or the next day. Of course we are widely capable of "delayed gratification". Some of us better than others. But this will not change much with an outlook of 20years, 80 or 200 years of living

    Aging or Genom decay is a fluke in our biology. In fact there are people with a genetic mutation that let's them not age past the age of 30 or so but they all die from the other side effects of that mutation. Namely profound bleeding from the skin.

    It’s impossible to stop aging. Because a child being born will remains a newborn forever. An old man will remains old forever. Then no evolution could happen, everything just stop.
