Long-term medicine

Abstract:
Chris Phoenix: Life extension researcher Aubrey de Grey has an interesting article on a concept he calls "life extension escape velocity." He starts by asserting that it's easier to understand the effects of aging--the chemical changes in the body--than the causes, and that it may be possible to fix many of the biochemical effects even without a complete grasp of the causes.

In the last few paragraphs of his article, he invokes molecular manufacturing: he expects we will need general-purpose nanotechnology--"machinery that we can control as precisely as we control computers."
