Life Longevity via New Technology May 25, 2009

Posted by William VanHouten in 1.
1 comment so far

With current and new technology the aging process will begin to slow down. When cells wear out, cloned and cultured stem cells can be used to replace them, or if cells are diseased or “unwanted” they can be eliminated through a variety of evolving techniques. Some scientist hope to extend life 50 years or more by the year 2100, and expect eventually an average life expectancy of 1,000 and perhaps even 5,000 years. Your generation may be the last generation to die!

  1. If this proves possible, is it desirable? Why? Answer with 30 words or more!
  2. Are these advances unnatural? Why? Answer with 30 words or more!
  3. Does certainty of death give life definition of meaning? Why? Answer with 30 words or more!
  4. Or do you want to live forever? Why? Answer with 30 words or more!
  5. Will the rich and poor equally share in the possibility of living much longer lives? Why? Answer with 30 words or more!
  6. Identify, research and explain new technologies that will allow people to live longer. List five technologies with a 30 additional word description of each technology.
