Ageing and the Status Quo
The status quo is challenged by rejuvenation, but this is only a good thing.
The idea of reviving people doesn’t sell well because it challenges the status-quo. We’re used to our health deteriorating over time, whether it is for good or for bad.
It’s not the best certainty, but we are planners and prefer uncertainty to bad certainty. Some people prefer to know that they will retire at a certain age and not be able to work.
It’s not just the reason. Radical change would require a radical rethinking about everything that would be affected by it. This would include our social contracts, job markets, future planning and our ideas of milestones in life, family, old age, and much more. Humanity is not known for its willingness to rethink things.
