We all want a good life. We want to flourish. We want to be free to pursue our own choices. But what does it take?
Would you like to live forever? Silly question? Could eternal life be boring or impossible? Or could it be wonderful? And is it possible?
It was just a short conversation over coffee….. …. when the conversation turned to brains. “My neurobiology lecture this morning was pretty challenging.
