what's your view on aging
personally, i'm against it
I don't mind it, I feel comfortable with not looking like a teenager anymore. It's nice
I think it shouldn't be tolerated.
It's p cozy
I used to be scared of aging but to be honest I have so much life ahead of me that I'm excited to live it yk
I don't want to live forever, but I want to age how I want and live for as long as I want. Natural aging and age-related disease is a denial of my will, and I oppose its every move.
>And live for as long as I want
And how long do you wish to live?
Three hundred to one thousand years is my ideal, roughly speaking. Past a certain point I expect my memory to hit fundamental limits, and I don't want to keep living after my brain starts to overwrite my most important memories. Mind uploading might help to extend that somewhat, but we'll have to wait and see.
>Three hundred to one thousand years
And are you gonna be the only person on earth with this power? Or will your girlfriend and a few friends also be able to live from three hundred to one thousand years?
>Past a certain point I expect my memory to hit fundamental limits, and I don't want to keep living after my brain starts to overwrite my most important memories.
i like to imagine if you can live that long there are some ways to maintain memory long term
i think one of the hardest things about aging and the mind is how do we make sure our minds "remain young"
older people think differently, it makes it harder for them to form new memories or something
but i don't know
I would think that the decline in neuroplasticity is related to aging, so I would expect that to be fixed by a comprehensive age reversal treatment.
a lot of it probably is related to aging, but there still might be some natural consequences of forming memories and brain stuff
Fine with it now. Was gonna kms at 30 before I decided to start hrt instead. My life is pretty much normal and I'm trying to decide what 40 year old lady stuff I'm going to get in to
>Was gonna kms at 30 before I decided to start hrt instead.
god i wish i could convince myself to start hrt before 30
>i like to imagine if you can live that long there are some ways to maintain memory long term
yes, any respectable aging treatment will also include ways to defeat dementia. the issue anon was talking about was not that, it was fundamental limits to how much information a human brain can store. we don't run into those now because we don't live long enough, but eventually we would. at that point it's not enough to maintain the existing machinery indefinitely, you need upgrades.
That In Time (2011) is only barely a dystopian film
It's a damn sight better than dying. We should fix it though.
I didn't want to age more after 20 because that's when the horrors of being a teenager are over and eventually the horrors of the body breaking down start. But then I remembered that I only have my lazy gamer lifestyle to blame for my back problems and started to do sports and I'm happier now than when I was 20. I feel more confident than when I was younger and talking to people got easier too. The very old people I know are really nice and sweet, I want to be nice like that too when I'm really old. My grandma had cancer and was in pain when she died. I hope I won't die in pain. I cried at her funeral. If only I had spent more time with her and helped her in her last days the ways she helped me all my life... I'm sorry, grandma.
it's just another manifestation of entropy, the principle upon which this universe is built on. everything is made to die, and be recycled into something else. does it need to be this way? probably not. yet it still is. cui bono?
it is inevitable
Turning 30 is funny. Nothing changes. You're more mentally stable and this threshold that made you so anxious is just over. Freeing in a way.
I'm not really scared of aging besides 65+ stuff. That's when things actually get bad.
>this threshold that made you so anxious is just over.
but if you still aren't where you want to be in life it feels like overtime? speaking for myself since i'm not even on hrt yet
we're going to "run out of space" since our brains don't store data like that but yeah there will be some decay
>point it's not enough to maintain the existing machinery indefinitely, you need upgrades.
that was what i was saying by "maintain memory long term" even if the answer besides adding more capability is just to make sure your brain can adapt and only keep the memories that are most important
Same. I do wish I was allowed to transition sooner, but I try not to dwell on it, plus I have it a lot easier than a lot of trans ppl just bc I'm short and didn't really masculinize much past 20.
nothing worse than this
she’s pregnant, how old could she be?
I'm afraid of it, one day I'll be old and wrinkled and it scares me
it's cringe and i refuse
if you fear ageing it's because of arrested development. grow up. no, you should not be enabled to be a mental baby all your life
when eternal youth becomes real you can die with those thoughts if you wish
if it's available i will refuse to take it
>if you fear being riddled with dementia, brittle bones and having the nursing home staff change your diapers. grow up
so you forget everything, whatever. get over it.
MEN AGE LIKE WINE
women like cheese
If only. Lots of men start balding, while the women I know seem to age more slowly. Most men also won't put on make-up to accentuate things, unless they're actors on TV or something.
>Old male celebrities are popular tho
The fact that they're rich is a major attraction point. Powerful women aren't seen as as attractive to men as powerful men are seen to be to women. Hetero law says men are tops and women are bottoms, so it's more socially acceptable to simp for old ppl when you're a woman. Most of the women I know simp for 20something korean pop stars tho, although most of the fanfics I hear of still center around 1 direction.
With old people I mean 40 year olds, not the elderly
The only really bad part of male aging is balding. Losing fat on your face usually makes you look more masculine, while for women it's less flattering. This is a transitory stage though. Men who glow up in their late 30s are kinda like women who peak in their early 20s. A few years of sublime beauty until the clock is visibly ticking again. Tragic. No more gender wars. We should kill this beast called aging together.
used to be scared about it, realize my 30s are going to be my best years, don't mind it anymore.
I just turned 18 and still look 14. I love being this neotenous and fear againg.
