Hypothetical: Extension of Lifetime

If there was a drug that extended your lifespan to 150, then another advancement a few years later to 400 and exponentially from there, would you take it?

Assume this drug has no side effects. Or if you must have them for the hypothetical, they are like any other drugs with small headaches and things. Minor is the key.

So, would you take it?

I voted "YES" under the assumption that the extension was going to be a pretty good quality of life as opposed to 400 years in a nursing home or on a respirator.

It would depend on the state and body of the mind. Would your physiological state be the same age as your chronological age? If so, why bother?

And then too, there is the ethical questions of overpopulation. Do we want a shift from being overpopulated with young to ancient?

I'd be inclined to say no but without the answers to theses questions then I wanted to keep my options open.

A few questions...
Would my quality of life be decent at all?(If it's horrible, like those we extend nowadays, then hell no)

Would my wife have access to the same pill? (Couldn't live that many years without her)

WOuld I be able to work for a higher percentage of years? (If I can't work, then how wold I support myself?)

Fair enough and something I should have clarified.

I think this is the same as patteeu's question, and I forgot to clarify it. You'd stay the same, aging nonetheless but VERY VERY slow.

I knew this would come up. ACtually, this is one of the reasons I'm surprised that NASA or some other private industry isn't getting the funds to get into space. Imagine the 70Billion on Iraq going to getting us off the planet.

Fair enough. If you had a gun to your head, what would you choose?

Yes. Everyone has access.

As for your last question, I'm not sure. I think society would figure itself out.

If my Family and Friends have access, my answer is "Yes".

If not....probably not. I'm not cut out to be the next Lazarus Long.
