The latest bout of asking myself was generated when I saw part of program on research to help extend human life to possibly 200 years—with the goal of limiting illness and degenerative disease for an easier life. Really, 200 years? Should we?
I started thinking about some possible unintended consequences. What about population growth? Harm to the earth for an explosion of population with out humans learning to live more lightly on her? Jobs for all these people? Where would everyone live?
Then, I asked myself something else. If part of life on earth is some struggle so that we learn and grow, what would all this mean if part of the struggle is eliminated because the “trials” of aging are limited or even eliminated?
Another question that I had is what would this mean in terms of soul growth if everyone is hanging around, so to speak, for 200 years and not moving on?
So, just because we might some day be able to live to 200 years, should we? My inclination on this one is no.
