Thoughts on the profession

Live Forever?

Even after a few weeks, I am still thinking about this article from the New York Times’ Sunday Magazine.  Billionaire David Murdock is doing everything he can to live to 125 years old.  While I admire him for being a model of healthy aging, I find his stated, numerical age goal a little disturbing. 

Take a look at this article.  I find the sections where he talks about his wife (deceased) very touching and somewhat sad.  He strikes me as a man touched and hurt by the loss of someone close, and trying to heal that hurt by conquering death.
