    This is the only way I have to contact you. My Seeking Delphi(tm) blog and podcast should be one of your sources. To Whit: I write for Age of Robots magazine, and host the futurist podcast, Seeking Delphi™. I am sure you are aware that Elizabeth Parrish, the CEO of Bioviva, is the first person to ever undergo genetic editing therapy to attempt to reverse some aspects of aging. In an exclusive Seeking Delphi™ podcast interview released this evening, she calls bioethics “the least ethical thing on the planet right now.” She does this in the context of implying that bioethics impedes research progress and personal choice. Please credit Seeking Delphi™ if you use any of this.
