Prospects and Consequences of Defeating Aging

Aging is humanity’s oldest enemy. Probably since the emergence of consciousness, humans have been aware that they undergo an unavoidable decline in health as they age, eventually leading to inescapable death. A vast proportion of human behavior and culture, including most of our religious traditions and huge aspects of our economic and political norms, are underpinned by the phenomenon of age-related ill-health. Humanity undoubtedly faces many other problems that limit our ability to savour the most intense joy that the mind is capable of, and we must tackle those issues too if we are to create the truly idyllic world that few of us can even yet imagine. But I feel that aging comes first. We are on the brink of truly decisive breakthroughs against aging, breakthroughs that will bring it under the same degree of medical control that already exists for most infectious diseases. Once we successfully implement these therapies, humanity’s attitude to hard problems in general – climate change, world peace, poverty, the lot – will change fundamentally and permanently. We will know that we can aim high and succeed.

Dr. Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist based in Cambridge, UK, and is the Chief Science Officer of SENS Foundation, a non-profit charity dedicated to combating the aging process. He is also Editor-in-Chief of Rejuvenation Research, the world’s highest-impact peer-reviewed journal focused on intervention in aging.
