### In a recent interview he said he is against extreme longevity because
it could result in an ossification of the society due to old ideas not
dying, and would welcome his own death as a "relief".

I must say this is where I parted ways with Mr Musk. Using death as the
prime way of getting rid of old ideas does sound rather harsh to me. There
are interesting neuro-technical and socio-technical challenges that would
have to be solved in the Methuselah society to avoid ossification but I am
pretty damn sure we don't have to kill old folks just to get rid of their
boomer bullshit.
