Do You Want To Live Longer?
Surveys show most people do, but only a little bit longer. 75% do not wish to live to 100 and very few want to live to 120 even if that were possible. I am among the minority who want to live as long as is possible.
I think the key is where the emphasis lies; whether it is on the word live or on the word longer. People are concerned about quality of life in old age; things like losing their health, losing their mind, and losing their ability to live independently. I don’t want to live like that either. Those humans who live to a very advanced age, like the current record holder Jeanne Calmet who died in 1997 at the age of 122, don’t just live longer; they age slower. They stay healthy, vibrant, alert, and independent into advanced ages. Jeanne was still riding her bicycle at 100, a good 20 years after the average woman has already died.
