There's a concept called Longevity escape velocity. That Ray Kurzweil has popularized and I write about in this upcoming book and it's the notion that today for every year that you're alive. Science is extending your age by a quarter year. Now. The question is, when will we get to the point where for every year? Oh, you're livescience is extending your life for more than a year, Ray, Kurzweil predicts, its the next 12 years. And his predictions are pretty (expletive) good. George church has said, you know, he thinks it's within the next 10 to 15 years. So the same time Prime. So this is where we're going. And ultimately, you know, I don't think what wouldn't you pay for an extra, you know, 2030 healthy years of life. Now, this is not slobbering in a wheelchair. This is where you have the Aesthetics, you look great. The cognition, you're thinking clearly the mobility or will move around to enjoy those extra years. And what would you do with an extra 30 years of healthy life or more? No, I think I mean David brings it up in his book or the societal implications of all these extra years.
