LIO Libertarians  with Life Extension Researchers

 

 

Researchers and activists including LIO Libertarians and advisors have announced they continue a push for effective immortality, possibly in a generation.

 

If a person were immortal, statistically accidents would kill them in about 700 years, according to LIO curator Michael Gilson-De Lemos, who praised the effort and helped change thinking organizing the "Committee for Elimination of Death" in the '70's which met with many scientists and leaders and so changed the paradigm allowing scientists to think in terms of life extension and immortality, not just disease cures. Effective biological immortality would be a great step, and would drive dramatic safety and anti-coercion life-quality  improvements--and is a major interest of LIO in bringing together and encouraging effort in the SMILE initiative.

 

Dubbed the Manhattan Beach project, the initiative works to focus scientists and business on specifics that would lead to breakthroughs, starting with a working group of the top workers in the subject, including in actual aging reversal.
