TheFountain, although you're thinking that he has, for all purposes, stopped aging, that is not the case. He's still aging, he just doesn't look older on the outside. It's mathematically impossible that he would have stopped aging altogether because the amount of mutations that he would have to possess are as big and unlikely as a human female giving birth to a dragon or something.
You are claiming you know whether or not he stopped aging on a mathematical level and yet you don't even know the name of his (as far as we can determine) singularly rare condition? Man, that is arrogance.
Let's just say that, hypothetically speaking, he ages only 2 years biologically for every 5 or 10 chronological years. Isn't that still a significant finding? I just feel like people are brushing this under the rug. Especially when they should be studying his condition.
Give him one or two decades and he will start looking weird, like developing wrinkles and gray hair while still maintaning an overall boyish appearance. If you think about it, most 33 year olds also don't show any signs of aging other than those imposed by their growth hormones.
I am sorry, but you and just about everyone else here who says the average 33 year old shows no outward signs of aging are just plane biased. Period. I can show you vast differences between the average 33 year olds appearance and the the average 23 year old. Some of them are leathery skin, sunken facial features, prominent darkness under eyes, crows feet. Etc. Please stop saying that fundamentally speaking most 33 year olds don't show outwrd signs of aging, because that is utter bullshit. Sorry for being blunt.
