And what about the overpopulation? And after they impose forcible limits on the number of children per family, what will we do with all of those teachers and school buildings?
I know, I know. I'm not even sure how a world would work with increased (or almost perpetual) lifespans.
I never thought they would "cure" aging. I expected it to remain an elusive dream for at least a few hundred years if not thousands. But with the latest advances now I'm not so certain they won't at least make a big dent in it within the next generation.
Before my grandfather passed away he reminisced once about how much the world had changed while he was alive. He was born before anyone he knew had a car or a radio or electricity or running water, but by the time he died we had moon landings, computers and the internet. I grew up in a world already humming with electricity and computers, but before I die will I reminisce about a time when people actually grew old and died. And will my daughter have a hard time imagining what that might have been like.
