Would you like to have your rate of physical aging slowed by a factor of thirty so as to give you a life expectancy of about 2000 years? How hard would it be to outlive and lose each person you grew close to? If you lived a greatly lengthened life, would you experience so much that you’d soon feel surrounded by children? Would you be able to adjust to the dramatic social changes? Would you soon grow jaded feeling there was nothing interesting left? Does feeling that life is too short increase the intensity and passion of it in a desirable way?
