Exactly my point. In fact, I can even live with the idea that some
unexpected accident may terminate my life at any point in time (and I am not
so fond of contemporary obsession for safety). What I personally hate is the
acceptance of a more or less fixed time limit, in the fashion that
supermarket products expire no matter how well you conserve them.
I want to finish off my to-do list. Going, doing, and learning everything

In principle, my immediate target would be even less ambitious, probably on
the scale of 800-1000 years. After that, I may well find new interests, or
genetically-programmed survival instincts may simply kick in, or not, but
whatever it may be it is not such a present concern for me.
For the time being, what I find of primary interest is the progressive
extension of potential lifespan (and/or the emulation of my identity on
other biological or non-biological substrates).
