    Maybe being in the smack middle of FL gives me a different perspective on this... I get to see a LOT of old people.
    And FL attracts these more active communities of folks... so maybe I'm missing out on all the 65 yr old people who are sitting around doing nothing acting like they are 80.
    (Though my dad is exactly this age and lives in BF sticks TN, and doesn't either... very muscular and fit, works hard mentally and physically, plays hard on cross country motorcycle rides and solo multi-day kayak river paddles... not "old")

    In their 60's they really aren't "old" they are still running around, doing what they want every single day.
    Going to the gym, staying active and fit... drinking, dating, golfing, dancing, karoke, having crazy key parties. You name it they get up to it.

    The noticeable age and infirmities start to hit around 72-75 or so generally.
    Even then, some don't slow down much... but many do. And the die off starts in noticeably.
    Which mostly means there are lots of women and the guys left have the run of the place.
    It's really a wonderful community to watch and interact with. And I think it's nice that they can be together instead of segregated and expected to stay with their younger family members with whom they have less in common. It keeps them more active and in touch with the world.
    “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Time is an abstract of comprehension and consciousness, so, no one is really old, because age is just one's perception. I stopped paying attention to my real age a while ago, and fight hard to keep my appearance and body looking youthful, instead of matching my age.

    This is how I feel anyway(I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys-R-Us kid)

    But there is still that continuum of time between birth and death. It is a finite thing for better or worse. The machine that you currently inhabit will, without exception, suffer total failure at some point. I only hope that I am around long enough to see the technology that will allow one to switch machines.

    Maybe, but is there evidence for that?

    “I have never seen evidence that [human bodies] contain any principle of mortality, and in recent years the suspicion that we contain all the equipment needed for perpetual renewal, given the right circumstances, is seeming to be increasingly plausible.”

    I think just because we do die, and we do age, doesn't necessarily mean we have to, given that our own bodies are very capable of regenerating and healing themselves. In the right circumstances, I think immortality could certainly be possible.

    Like you said, though, we just haven't reached that point of discovery yet.

    It was one apple or one can of tuna plus one cup of black coffee - about 55 to 260 calories a day.
