How Long is Long Enough? March 15, 2009

Posted by Matt Brown in Human Enhancement.

In a recently written post up on wordpress, one writer asked this question.  The post was in reference to the now oldest living man in the world, Tomoji Tanabe, who was born Sept. 18, 1895 and is celebrating his 113th birthday.  The article didn’t really attempt to answer the question but it got me thinking.  How old is old enough?

There have been many arguements against the idea of extending human life but one of the primary ones has been the belief that a long life equals a meaningless life.
