Telomeres help us understand how old we can live till. Its part of the genetic code perhaps and is something that academics in Cambridge have been studying for a while. In this post we look at the truth about how its all going. Just for reference its called the Methuselah Project (1963) and I found out about in a philosophical book which mentioned the study very breifly. The book had a great page about the truth in general suggesting that anything set down as factual truth is leading and often inaccurate with the passage of time. That name of the book is 'Truth: Philosophy in Transit' by John D. Caputo published by Penguin and is available in all good book shops.
