Aubrey de Grey thinks people should ask themselves whether they are sufficiently engaged with their own desires or just sleepwalking through life.
Question: What is a question people should be asking themselves?
Aubrey de Grey: I think people should be asking themselves whether their direction in life is being sufficiently defined by their own desires, or whether they are sleepwalking. But I don’t wanna be too, you know, judgmental on that. Because I know that I’ve had an extraordinarily privileged life. I’ve had an awful lot of luck in being able to get to the point where I could make a lot of money … luck. So a lot of people, you know, they’re sleepwalking through life because that’s all they’ve had the opportunity to be able to do. However some people, I think, are sleepwalking unnecessarily.
