I've read pronouncements by scientists back in the 1970's (the Disco-era versions of Aubrey de Grey) who predicted that we'd have treatments to slow down the aging process by that far-off, mysterious year 2000 or so. A lot of these scientists have died by now, ironically enough. So don't get too emotionally invested in de Grey's ideas for SENS. If his ideas don't work, we need to find out sooner rather than later so we can move on to potentially better ideas.

He's not blowing smoke about "they'll have better technology in the future". He's naming specific problems and suggesting how existing modern medicine could be refined to fix them.

I said I want scientists to test SENS to exhaustion, and quickly. The strange cult of personality around the Bearded One makes me worry that he'll lead anti-aging research into a cul-de-sac for yet another generation.

No other time in modern history has aging been understood in the molecular and cellular level. No other time in human history has something like stem cells been a legitimate miracle treatment.
It turns out aging is not that complicated to understand after all. And the treatments are in the horizon.
Think: genetically engineered embryonic stem cell treatments

Millions now living will never die.

God's had long enough to work on this, let the scientists have a go...
