I had a great lunch with James today. I can't believe or even completely understand how he is the age he is. I knew that there was some experimentation with extending human life, but I didn't know that the scientists of the past were so successful. According to James, after DNA repairing experiments had been stopped, some of the knowledge learned at that time, were covered up by the government, and no more people were allowed to do the DNA repair except for the people have already done it. James is the only one left. I wonder how he has been able to adapt all of this time. It must have been hard over the centuries of life to watch as everyone around him died off. I don't think I could do it. I have a great deal of respect for him just for that fact.
We are meeting tomorrow, and I can't wait to learn more about his life. I'm Especially interested in the 21st century. For whatever reason I have alway been interested in that time. A lot of the technology that we take for granted now was just beginning. I mean James would have witness some of the first people to venture into space. Now we travel through space and don't even give it a second thought, but then it was a very dangerous proposition. There are so many things I want to ask about. I guess we will just see how this conversation goes. Wow! I just can't get over the thought of living then!
