TED-talks on the longevity revolution: Age as a potential


Today we live 34 years longer than our great-grandparents did. Yet, we are still living with the old paradigm of age as an arch: we are born, peak at midlife and then there is nothing but decline. In this TED-talk Jane Fonda (76) talks about old age as the third act: a developmental stage of life with its own significance, as different from midlife as adolescence is from childhood. Instead of an arch, she uses a staircase as a metaphor for life: an upward ascension bringing us wisdom, wholeness and authenticity. Age as a potential instead of a pathology. That older people feel less stressed less anxious, less hostile, and sometimes even happier than younger people also becomes clear from Isabel Allende’s (71) TED-talk. In her talk she reflects upon her fears as she grows older and shares how living passionately is her solution to keep on feeling young.

“Today we no longer have the right to pretend that we command a unique position from which we can view the truth about the world. We must learn not to judge different areas of knowledge, culture, or art, but to combine them and to establish new ways of coexistence with those who enable us to meet the unique demands of our time.”
