Your Immortality Is Now Waiting In A Billionaire's Checkbook

One of humanity’s dreams has been immortality here on earth….when governments fund scientific research there are controls….but currently two/thirds of scientific research is private-funded with no controls…the record shows several Silicon billionaires [from Google, PayPal, etc] have invested heavily in research to push life’s limits to at least 150,,,ideas such as bio-engineering body parts and re-programming DNA are among the driving forces…philosophers and bio-ethicists like laurie Zoloth here at Northwestern U remind these researchers there are consequences that would reach deep into any society’s capacity to manage such populations..
Peter Thiel, a spokesman for the Silicon billionaires, answers the criticsby insisting: “Death is the great enemy!”

is it? I wonder.
