In our collective understanding getting older equals losing. Losing youth, flexibility, beauty, memory, and what not. We believe that illness is inevitable, just a question when it begins and then never stops – until the very end. No escape.
But we want to escape death and, collectively, we are engaged in the immortality project. We are already living longer, statistically, because of better healthcare. But lately we have found out that many drugs first seem to help and then bring us nearer to illness and death. What to do?
If we don’t immediately become immortal, at least we can examine our beliefs and our practices we are eagerly engaging in. Do we really only LOSE when we get older? Or do we gain some things which were not available before? What new possibilities arise when we leave the attempt of remaining young for ever?
