Now, as you mention, there's life expectancy and healthy life expectancy... If we can keep the body alive but cannot do something against, say, brain ageing, what we'll get in the end is 120 years old living deads who cannot move, eat, or remember their names by themselves. What would be the point ?


the point is that these living deads are worth their weight in gold
at least for the pharmaceutical industry
