Human arrogance is actually what led us to think that we were entitled to control fire and everything that came after that. I am nowhere as optimistic as the subject of the thread on the matter, but the steady march of progress and technology should lead to extending our* life spans by substantial, maybe even indefinite amounts.

*by "our" I mean humans as a species, I am not all that optimistic that we will live to see it, maybe our kids or grandkids.
