I agree that this is one possible scenario, although the picture won't be
monolithic: Some places will allow most, if not all life extension
technologies to be developed and practiced, many will ban one or more and a
few will ban all new biotech. I would like to know that someone is
organizing a well-funded, well-staffed and well-equipped clinic and research
facility where "wide-open" life extension and other transhumanist technology
can be carried forward. I've done quite a bit of thinking about what would
be required, from a legal and business perspective, to accomplish this. If
you're interested, I'd be happy to discuss it with you.
