Likewise. I agree with you Eli.

But what no one has answered, and which was my question, do you or does
anyone know anything about the research performed in Germany at the
Tuebingen University and Gesellschaft fur Rationelle Psychologie in Munich.

If the author, Casey Walker, is using this research as a pivot point in
discussing biotechnologies flaws and the flaws of those who are ardently
pursuing extending life, then I'd like to know if anyone is familiar with
the research. Anders?
