Why is it that people are obsessed with immortality? Why did Juan Ponce de Leon spend his life searching for the Fountain of Youth? Why are people still trying to figure out how to time travel and space travel and somehow live forever?
As Sarah Brightman puts it, “Who wants to live forever?”
And you know where all this has gotten us?
I’d like to say nowhere, but that’s not true. It’s gotten women around the world addicted to skincare lines and botox to try to look younger, since they know it’s not possible for them to actually stay young forever.
That’s just not how I view life. For me, it’s all about getting older. Or, rather, growing older. Life is all about growth.
