Yes, anti-aging is becoming essential for the survival of humanity.
Not just so we can live longer, healthier lives, though.
I am encountering more and more articles about climate change that
refer to ecological overshoot. In effect, saying that there is no
solution to the problem without a wholesale change in the way humans
look at living on this planet. And for the great majority of humanity
that change in outlook will not happen because of the short lifespan
of humans. They just don't think on the long-term scale of the
necessary changes required. No generation wants to be the generation
that has to give up all their lovely shiny toys. So they won't.
Until the planet forcibly takes them away.
By then the very survival of humanity itself will be questionable.
