A timely essay on this thing of ours from the National Review.
That would depend. Give me a perfected body, then, okay.
Not sure I would want to stick around forever in my 82yo body.
Based on what I can tell, your 82 yr old body is pretty darn good!
(I think I’d rather have yours than mine when I get to 82!)

Depending on the technology involved, you might have a robotic body.
How much time you’d agree to spend in your 82yo slowly growing old body if eventually you’d have a chance to fully rejuvenate?
Dragging anti-aging investigation is all the rage now.
Haters always hate. They should be against finding a cure for cancer too. They’ll trash the concept up until the point when they realize they need it too…
My own view is that my objective is improved cellular health and as a consequence of that improved somatic health. Hence the target is improved healthspan which is likely to result an extended Lifespan even if not significantly.
Fit and trim at 75, I’m a runner who specializes in the hundred-meter dash. On a good day, with the wind at my back, I can do it in 17 seconds. But there are 80-year olds who can run it in 15, and 75-year-olds who can do it in 13. If rapa can get me down to 15 or less, I would be ecstatic. Running is the big top, length of years a sideshow
Most people even those that dont admit it do think they want to live forever. However they usually dont have the inclination of pursuing it. Just look at the type of stuff being bought at the grocery store lines. People may want all kinds of things, but it only matters if they have what it takes to achieve it.
So which comes first? We find a way to keep the human body running for a couple hundred years, or we find a way to upload a person into an android?
Either works for me!
