[ 9/9/20 Lifeboat Foundation Facebook Page – Eric Asked “Why do you want an unlimited lifespan?”]
Having a personal stake in long term security seems to be the easiest way to ensure long term viability of complex systems.
I already have enough projects sketched out to keep me busy for the next 5,000 or so years, and that is with the technology I know about now – without all the interesting stuff that is sure to materialise along the way.
The idea of dying has never really appealed to me, even in the worst pain of aggressive cancer, I still wanted to live – I wanted rid of the pain, but not by dying.
There is just so much that seems to be both possible and interesting, why wouldn’t you want to stick around and try it?
