This was pretty interesting. I did a little research on life expectancy and made some quick calculations. currently the global life expectancy is around 67.23 years and the maximum age for humans is 122 years. So if we manage to increase the global life expectancy to 100 years, the new maximum could be around 182 years. I know you guys strive for indefinite life span but it is still pretty exciting since this could be the short term.
