I never tell anybody this because I know they would think I’m crazy, but most of the time I think that I can probably continue living. Not indefinitely. I don’t think I’m invincible or a god or anything like that. But I don’t think it’s so crazy that I might live for another 150 years or so if I stay on top of my health and informed about innovations in medical technology.
At the library, I read Scientific American, Science Today, Modern Medicine News and even Wired to learn about the newest wonder drugs that are being evaluated by the FDA. I make notes about which internal organs the researchers are having the most success cloning or growing in the laboratory. I also research infectious diseases on the internet for about an hour each day to see what the next big epidemic might be and how a person can prepare for its arrival.
