David Tian, Ph.D.: And try to live longer, to find immortality, literally. Everything we do is going that direction; trying to live longer. There are always these outliers who are weird, all the daredevils.

David Tian, Ph.D.: Oh yes! If our lifespans get shorter, I think we’ll put more stock on the now. If your A.I. robots take over, and we have a terminator situation, and there’s no food and water easily gotten, I think we’d go back to primitive times when it’s a bit better.
Well in terms of, enjoyed the now. But then we have, objectively speaking, a horrible life.
