A key theme I write about in RetirementSingularity.com is the idea that we are, I believe, not too far away from being able to extend human healthy life spans well beyond age 120. In my mind, an important unknown is when this will become an accessible and practical reality. My best guess is that the science that will enable this will start showing up in about 15 – 20 years. Since this is not that far away, and likely within your life expectancy, don’t you think it should be something you pay attention to?

cast your mind into the future when advances in science, nutrition and health care begin to take hold and extend our lifespans. It will be a time when age 80 won’t mean falling prey to the typical decline of mind and body that we normally associate with old age. Instead, he suggests we’ll be healthy, energetic and willing and able to keep learning – and keep working.

“It’s the idea that if everyone would just, in a one-time event, dedicate one percent of their net worth to life-extension science, that would be something like a trillion dollars- we would almost certainly be able to, in say ten to fifteen years’ time, conquer most diseases and probably eliminate human death itself.” Zoltan Istvan

Have enough to retire? Some leading retirement researchers have shown that how much you will spend on health care in your retirement, and how long you will live are huge swing-factors in how “retirement ready” you are. Of course your life span and health costs in retirement are unknowable – so what can we do about this? Do we just throw the dice?

Towards Real Progress in Healthy Life Extension – Update On Google’s Calico and the Importance of Mouse Rejuvenation
Will proof of concept of anti-aging therapies in mammals be enough to turn the tide in public ambivalence? Personally, while convincing proof of concept will help, the reluctance of a large part of society to see healthy life extension as desirable will likely take much more. A large amount of grass-roots discussion, debate and communication at all levels of society, led by those who have thought it through will be needed.
