In January of 2017 the first two episodes of Seeking Delphi™ featured David Wood, chair of the London Futurists, on his book The Abolition of Aging. Wood’s newest effort, Sustainable Superabundance: A Universal Transhumanist Invitation, is an apt follow-up. It deals with the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead; it maps out his preferred scenarios for a better world, while warning about the dangers of making a worse one. David joins me in this episode for a discussion of some the key ideas in his new book.
In episode one of Seeking Delphi, the podcast, I spoke with David Wood, chair of London Futurists, about his book The Abolition of Aging. Specifically, we talked about his bold forecast of a 50% probability of widely available, affordable rejuvenation therapy being available by 2040. In part two of my interview with David, we discuss a few of the wide ranging implications for society, should radical longevity extension become a reality. Retirement, work, sustainability and the meaning of life itself are all in play.
“I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying. I don’t want to live on in the hearts of my countrymen; I want to live on in my apartment.”–Woody Allen
