A progressively advancing window on life expectancy … immortality?

Today the life expectancy is around 75 – 80 years.

In 10 years from now there will be enough advances in medicine that the average life expectancy will increase to 120 – 130 years.

Suppose that you are now 50 years of age.  That means that you can expect another 70 – 80 years.

But in 70 – 80 years there will be enough advances in medicine that the average life expectancy will have increased to 150 – 160 years.

That means you will have another 30 – 40 years.

But in that 30 – 40 years there will be enough advances in medicine that the average life expectancy will have increased to 180 – 200 years.

Get the idea?

Immortality!
