Death is very dreary, dull affair, and my advice to you

is to have nothing whatever to do with it.

-W. Somerset Maugham

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been a fan of Death.  For years I’ve amused myself with (what I thought to be) the completely unattainable goal of defeating senescence and downloading my consciousness into a silicon body or drinking some magic fluid and stopping the aging process in its tracks.  Apparently, I wasn’t too far off.

Aubrey de Grey, a biogerontologist at Cambridge University, believes science will unlock the secret to eternal youth and maintained health… and this can happen in the near future.  Building on the premise that growing old is a disease, he is determined in learning how to combat the key features of the body’s self-destructive linear path and stave off the infamous Last Nap.
