The Quest to End Aging

If you could decide how long you want to live, how would you answer? The longer your life is, the more likely you will spend the later years in illness and disability. Would it be worth it to add years on the end, or could we ever stop the effects of aging? This is a two-part video; the first part by Kurzgesagt, the second by C.G.P. Grey. That what they tell us, although they could easily work as two videos by two different video producers on two different subjects.l  

The idea of living a lot longer than we do now opens up some philosophical questions. Would longer lives make us wiser, better community members, or encourage us to take better care of our planet? Or would it lead us to take time for granted? C.G.P. Grey looks at death and the meaning of life.

So what if we could conquer death? What would be the downside? (via Laughing Squid)
