Home > Press > 150 Year Life Spans Becoming Likelier Says Noted Futurist

Abstract:
With each new scientific discovery, it becomes increasingly more likely that we will be able to achieve an average human life span of 150 years or greater. And better yet, people will be doing so in bodies that are youthful, physically vibrant, and mentally sharp.

150 Year Life Spans Becoming Likelier Says Noted Futurist

MORRISTOWN, NJ | Posted on April 1st, 2008

So says internationally-recognized sociologist and futurist Dr. Michael G. Zey. In his recently published book "Ageless Nation" Zey describes in detail the many breakthroughs in fields such as genetic engineering, stem cell science, bionics, and more mysterious technologies such as nanotechnology and caloric restriction that are enabling us to live longer, healthier lives. And Michael Zey also shows how this radical extension of the human life span will impact our lives in ways that we can only imagine.

One of the first commentators to seriously discuss the possibility of radical life extension, Dr. Zey's globally-disseminated statement of several years ago that "mankind is on the threshold of immortality" is looking increasingly prescient. Over the last year or so he has been heralding the onset of the Superlongevity Revolution on TV and radio programs and in the press on such outlets as ABC Radio network, KNX-AM in Los Angeles, the LA Times.
Reached at his offices in Morristown NJ, Dr. Zey was adamant about the real chances of achieving the 150-year life span. "As people routinely live to ages of 150 or greater, every aspect of society will radically change." Every aspect of our lives—marriage, careers, childbearing and childrearing—will be impacted by the Superlongevity Revolution, says Dr. Zey.

Zey claims that future historians will regard the radical extension of the human life span as one of the most significant achievements of the 21st century.
