TagLast edit: 13 May 2020 23:01 UTC by Raemon

Life Extension is the theory /​ practice of extending human lifespans – for decades, centuries. or much longer. This includes advice that applies to individuals, research projects that might extend human lifespans as a whole, or philosophical discussion of the concept.

See also Cryonics, a particular life extension technique that has received a lot of discussion on LessWrong.

Do not miss the cut­off for im­mor­tal­ity! There is a prob­a­bil­ity that you will live for­ever as an im­mor­tal su­per­in­tel­li­gent be­ing and you can in­crease your odds by con­vinc­ing oth­ers to make achiev­ing the tech­nolog­i­cal sin­gu­lar­ity as quickly and safely as pos­si­ble the col­lec­tive goal/​pro­ject of all of hu­man­ity, Similar to “Fable of the Dragon-Tyrant.”
