in 'Holy Fire". "Life extension technology increased so the longevity
expectation increaseed more than one year every year. So, on was effectively
imortal. " [paraphrasing...]

What's really exciting about this, is that a sustained rate of .4yrs/yr means a person of 35 years can expect to live another ~70 years, bringing us to the year 2068. Even the most conservative extropian's see radical nanotech by this point. So perhaps in a sense, we have already reached the breaking point, and can now expect to to catch the wave of ever increasing nanotech life-extension returns.
