Rejuvenation and second life
How to feel old and lonely? Do you have old parents? Is it a way to change this? Is it possible to live a second life and have a second youth?
What about plastic surgery?
‘But there is also a big difference between looking young, feeling young and being young. What about the hoarse voice? Feeling weak in the mornings?’
Rejuvenation, rejuvenation, rejuvenation – I am often telling myself. Deep Rejuvenation with transplants and special hormone drugs such as somatropin – is it an answer? Testosterone, epinephrine or adrenaline, new young glands does it work? Is it possible to achieve this with multiple transplantations, blood transfusions? What about face transplantation?
Well. And then what to do with old brains, with dementia/senility, degenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease and other brain disorders?
And now it turns to ethical questions. What about cruel dictators, change of power and progress of humanity?
‘Great temptation lurks in your proposal. Nature wants to preserve the life of the species and for this reason limits the life of its individuals. Herein lies its truth. And it’s not worth arguing about this with it. It might as well happen that with your help or without it, on this matter, nature will be changed slightly. But mankind will lose much from this.’
‘I believe that people should die in their time. Therein lies the guarantee to progress.’
