Who Wants To Live Forever?

Who wants to live forever? I don’t. I’m interested in a healthy last 15-20 years rather than being enfeebled or suffering from dementia-related conditions. However, on my last day, I might want to withdraw the statement, but that will depend on my circumstances. Rationally, I …
