There is no difference between saving lives and extending lives.

“There is no difference between saving lives and extending lives, because in both cases we are giving people the chance of more life.

(…) some people are worried that it would mean playing God and going against nature. But it’s unnatural for us to accept the world as we find it.

We would be going against that most fundamental aspect of what it is to be human if we decided that something so horrible as everyone getting frail and decrepit and dependent was something we should live with forever.

If changing our world is playing God, it is just one more way in which God made us in His image”.

Aubrey de Grey, english author and biomedical gerontologist. “Aging: Concepts and Controversies: We will be able to live to 1000” (2015).
