Life expectancy is just growing. Predictions say that it could reach 120 by 2050 and 150 by 2100.
And then there’s talk about the stem cell researchers and others working on conquering death.
That’s challenging the one thing that’s said to be certain- death!!
When someone becomes immortal, he’s a god. Well that’s what mankind is looking for, to be equal to gods.
But then these gods die. Scriptures are full with stories of fights among gods and the killings, some in brave fights, some through deceits.
And we have enough ammunitions in the present day world to address the spectre of earth being full with centurions. We have wars, terrorists, famine, natural calamities and even suicides.
Then what we do if peace comes to the world! By 2100, most people will be the retired variety. Social Security, the NHS and the like in developed world crumble, pension funds will go bankrupt, insurance companies just wind up.
Even a life expectancy of 100, which every child born today can safely inherit will have the pension and old age care systems to fail.
Start addressing this spectre, if we are serious about doing something for the future generations……
