Sonia Arrison is the author of “100+, How the coming Age Will Change Everything, From Careers and Relationships to Family and Faith.” She explores how the possibility of life extension through technology will affect society and identity.  Read Sonia’s full bio here…

“Was it natural to only have a life expectancy of 43? Maybe we should have stayed there? And the answer is no, so that kind of argument is an appeal to the status quo, not to anything inherent in nature. In fact, it’s natural for humans to want to try and make themselves healthier and better.”

“If you can live to 150, can you imagine, you wouldn’t get married, well you might get married at 20, but would it last until death? “Til death do you part” would mean a much longer period of time at that point, wouldn’t it?”

“When people can be healthier longer, they can be productive longer. So health actually generates wealth. So as a society, we should be better off when people are living longer and healthier lives.”
