At this time the movement for indefinite life extension puts most of its focus on aging. As we grow and acquire world support the movement will start doing more and more to cover every conceivable angle on what it takes to achieve indefinite life extension.

Beyond aging, the facilitation of the development of all strategies that can create indefinite life extension in other ways, (ways that are already in practice, or new creative approaches) is underway through the movement for indefinite life extension.

Genetic diseases, existential threats, war, violence, accidents everything will eventually be fully addressed. For now though you’ll see a lot of focus on aging, or what philosopher Nick Bostrom calls the Dragon Tyrant, (from a paper he wrote called The Fable of the Dragon Tyrant.) In it, the dragon is an analogy to that monstrous beast known as aging that is devouring 100,000 people every single day. No other phenomenon holds a candle to the level human destruction of this murderous monstrosity is responsible for.
