Is this a good way for rich people to spend their money? To extend their lives and possibly live forever? We live in the strangest of times. Half the world's population has barely anything to subsist on while the elites get together to figure out how to become immortal! Make no mistake, living forever, settling on Mars, becoming one with the machine, etc. are all rich peoples' fantasies. Meanwhile mother Earth is having a fever that is not about to go away anytime soon. Why don't they spend some of their money to slow down climate change?
