Abstract

Ageing is as inevitable as the sunrise and taxes, right? Well, yes, if you are unlucky enough to be born as a human. We get made, we live our lives, we wear out, we croak. It’s sad and depressing and there is not much we can do about it, so we might as well get used to it. ‘I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work’, Woody Allen once said. ‘I want to achieve it through not dying’.
