sometimes I think why should I care about what happens to humanity after I'm dead

but most causes I believe in probably couldn't succeed in my lifetime

it's a real trip

Nothing you believe in will come to fruition in your lifetime.

There’s no reason to care beyond our lives it’s true but still I do and I don’t want not to so I’m just not going to overthink that one.

if there's some kind of medical breakthrough on cancer in my lifetime we could feasibly live a long ass time

you also have to dodge heart disease

but it's actually crazy how rare it is for someone to die of "natural causes", meaning to a point, everything we die from is not a forgone conclusion

Cancer is almost as unbeatable as death itself.

Cell division never going astray is like a perpetual motion machine or a tire that never wears away. It’s not going to happen. Over a long enough timespan every form of cancer is a certainty.

that may be true, I have no idea

I think there will be a few discoveries that'll reshape how we approach extending life somewhere tho, seems to be the trend

Perhaps but scientists know

if clinical trials go well
means that what it’s really about is figuring out why it doesn’t work and building from there

Life expectancy can go up another decade or more but the limitations of our lifespan aren’t going anywhere and haven’t gone anywhere.

but if I'm thinking I'm going to live to 80 but then the posts get moved to 100, that's probably good enough for me
