It strikes me as absurd and rather obscene, this whole cosmetic and medical industry based on the lust for youth, age fear, death terror. Who the hell wants to live forever? Most of us, apparently; but it’s idiotic. After all, there is such a thing as life saturation: the point when everything is pure effort and total repetition.
