Do You Want to Live Forever? - Wandering through the quadrangles and medieval bastions of learning at the University of Cambridge one overcast Sunday afternoon a few months ago, I found myself ruminating on how this venerable place had been a crucible for the scientific revolution that changed humankind’s perceptions of itself and of the world. The notion of Cambridge as a source of grand transformative concepts was very much on my mind that day, because I had traveled to England to meet a contemporary Cantabrigian who aspires to a historical role similar to those enjoyed by Francis Bacon, Isaac Newton, and William Harvey. Aubrey David Nicholas Jasper de Grey is convinced that he has formulated the theoretical means by which human beings might live thousands of years—indefinitely, in fact.

We are all going to live forever. WHERE we do it is another topic all together.

Right folks?!?!

Certainly, I don't think Florida or California is going to be around for a long time. It'd be a waste to move there after getting eternal life only to die in an earthquake or flood.

Hell, I wouldn't mind living forever, if I knew I could end it at some point, sheer boredom may kill me watching the human race destroy itself over and over
