“Your future self is watching right now through your memories.”–Aubrey de Grey
The newly released volume, After Shock, features 50 of the world’s most renowned futurists reflecting on the 50-year legacy of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock, and looking ahead to the next 50 years. Seven of the contributors have been guests on Seeking Delphi™ This is the sixth in a series of repeats of these podcasts, which will lead up to panel discussion with some of the authors, on the book and the Toffler legacy.
Aubrey de Grey is co-founder and chief science officer of the SENS foundation, and a leader in the global research effort to end aging. This program from 2017 was the first of four appearances for Aubrey on Seeking Delphi.™ All of his previous programs are linked below this first one.
The day I read Future Shock, just a couple of years after it came out, was the day that started me on the course to becoming a futurist. Here’s what I wrote on this blog when Toffler died in July of 2016.
