We must demand a total mobilization of humanity for the extension of healthy life:
Declare biology as a priority science. Train biologists en masse, build laboratories, declare war on death, make lots of people aware of that – as many people as possible.
I am; that’s enough for me. I am, I want to continue to be, to be as I am, better than I am if possible.
Aging and death are abominable. And we accept it. Denying it won’t solve this essential matter. We think of something else. We fight. We eat, we work, we love, we hate, we philosophize, we hope to leave a name in the dictionary for some, we adorn our minds.
We lie to each other. We lie to ourselves.
The truth is this: any life that knows it must end is just an agony.
We have consciousness. We know that no longer being, when one was, is the worst thing, the only real curse.
We could only observe, and submit. We had no way to act on the duration of our existence. For millennia.
We followed along the scientific grind, without this question having more importance than thousands of others; whereas it is the question, the only essential one, the one on which all the others depend.
There is no doubt that humanity will come to know the vital mechanisms well enough to suppress aging, that is to say, to prolong life, and even, theoretically – I mean barring accidents – to prolong it indefinitely.
The objections, who cares. We’ll see when we get there. The stakes are enormous for me, for you, for your loved ones, for everybody. No delay… No putting off.
It is impermissible, given the change, to let it pass.
Life is too short compared to what humans can do. Aim high. What has a limit, a predictable limit, is always too short. When one is existing, it is too stupid not to exist one day. Too stupid, that’s it.
Today, all that can change.
All of this needs to change and will change.
The question is: Do you want to be in the game?
Do you want to be in the most important human adventure ever?
Do you want to participate and make it happen faster?
The goal is to remain alive and healthy as much as we want.
