Reasons for rejuvenation

Rejuvenaction talks a great deal about objections to rejuvenation and provides rebuttals to them. To be honest, though, it talks perhaps too much about objections and not enough about the advantages that a comprehensive rejuvenation platform would bring to humanity—and when it does, these positives probably get buried in the rebuttal of potential negatives. For this reason, I thought it would be a good idea to have a new section of the website focused specifically on why rejuvenation is a goal worth pursuing. Some, perhaps even many, of these arguments you’ll find also in the answers to objections, so you might think I’m repeating myself a bit here, but I think it is important to highlight the pluses separately from any discussion about objections. Especially if you are an advocate, this may be useful for you because you’ll always have a handy list of all the benefits of rejuvenation, just like you have a list of objections and rebuttals in the objections section. A short summary is available here.

I thought the best way to organise this section of Rejuvenaction was to split it into four subsections, namely the reasons why…

Finally, the fourth subsection isn’t so much about why rejuvenation is good; rather, its contents are somewhat in between a reason for rejuvenation and a rebuttal to all objections. If you’ve ever watched a video featuring a certain long-bearded chap, you’ll surely understand why I decided to call this section

  • Aubrey’s trump cards: Why rejuvenation is a must, for two simple reasons that plant the final nail in the coffin of all objections—the way your favourite biogerontologist would put it.
