In videos Part 1 and Part 2, Aubrey discusses the current favorability of – and reservations around – such rejuvenation technologies. Aubrey explores the disconnect in which society celebrates the fight against the diseases of old age – and yet polls show most people are against the idea of fighting aging itself. He then discusses his techniques to urge the public to reexamine its reservations around biological rejuvenation.

Thanks to Aubrey de Grey & the SENS Foundation for having us.

Part 2 coming soon…

  1. “polls show most people are against the idea of fighting aging itself”

    If that’s true, the proof of the pudding will actually turn out to be in the eating I think: Once the treatments are available and affordable, how many people will choose to use them!

    That’ll be the only important metric. Everything else is conjecture.
