Ep 59: The Candles Blew and then Disappeared

In this solo episode I do a deep dive on the social and political implications of indefinite life span extension. This is a followup to my interview with Aubrey de Grey where we spoke about achieving “escape velocity” and people become effectively immortal. I suggested that eternal life this might have negative consequences at a broader level, Aubrey dismissed these concerns. I go through probable scenarios and the game theory implications if we begin to see a realistic chance of this happening.
