Les âges de la vie

De 0 à 102 ans




Texte de la vidéo :

Right now you are aging. That should be both obvious and totally remarkable to you. Yesterday you were 12, today you are 22, tomorrow 33, 43, 44, 54, 64. At 70 you'll have been alive for over 25k days, and been asleep for more than 8k of them. You'll have eaten 86 million calories talked for over 2 years watched over 2 million commercials and gotten sick or injured over 300 times. The average amount spent on US healthcare over a lifetime is 316k. One third spent in middle age and half during our senior years. So as we discover new methods for living longer we’ll need to develop new means in which to pay for the luxury of it. Just think: At 5, one year was 20% of your life at 50 it’s just 2%. Is it any wonder time seemed to drag when we were kids and turned into a blur as we got older. Even as each second, minute, hour, and day adds to the meaning of our lives the significance of that time is also reduced to smaller and smaller percentages. If we can eventually live to 1000 (as theorists like Aubrey de Grey insist will someday happen), a year will leave the same kind of impression as a few days did when we were 10, and someone who reaches 102 will still be considered a child, years away from adolescence.
