Thank you for such an eloquent and heartfelt post, Revolution9. I concur wholeheartedly. There is an inherent grace in aging naturally.
I think we as a society would go a long way to embrace the beauty of our differences, rather than to seek the status quo. Aging is not something to
fear, and when discounted on the job front, much wisdom and experience is also forsaken. The need to conform to our enhancement culture, means that
we lose something valuable in the process: acceptance of ourselves, and acceptance of others, at the core level.
Beauty is so very subjective; for whatever flaw one perceives in themselves, there are many whom would find your aesthetic pleasing. I am saddened
that nose jobs, for example, are so commonplace; I find large noses to be regal looking, and a face loses a certain "je ne sais quoi" when this
striking feature is modified.
I would rather appreciate the myriad of expressions that we humans consist of; than live in a society of carbon copies simply because the tech exists.
