Age myths run like a common thread through human history. From the patriarchs of the Bible who were said to be hundreds of years old, to notions of the stone of the wise, the elixir of life and the source of youth.
Today, the pursuit of a radically longer life is a thriving field of research, often funded by stone-rich tech billionaires in Silicon Valley. For them, aging, and by extension death, is another part of life that man must conquer.
Will we be able to stop aging? If so, who will receive life-prolonging treatments? And what happens to our society if death, the framework of our lives, moves further and further into the future?
