Scientists report that when the common things that kill humans are taken out , the human body’s capacity to restore equilibrium to its counrless structural and metabolic systems after disruptions still fades with time.

This progressive decline pegs the maximum life span for humans at a region between 120 and 150 years (full report at Scientific American).

This means that death is still inevitable, isn’t it? But should we worry about death? Since there is a ceiling to the longevity of flesh and blood, 150 years scientists believe, shouldn’t we turn our attention to learn as we were to live forever and learn to create immortal legacies?

We should and we can create the greatest legacy anyone can bequeath. That’s the legacy of love. Lionel Richie sums it up beautifully in the following words;

“I think the whole world is dying to hear someone say, ‘I love you.’ I think that if I can leave the legacy of love and passion in the world, then I think I’ve done my job in a world that’s getting colder and colder by the day.”
