LONGEVITY

Dreams of long life and extreme old age. But also, the occasional dream of the flip side: ephemerality. A good example of this is the film version of "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" which has close parallels to Meteor or Star? or Am I Immortal? below. What happens when you just don't know, when you have no predictable lifespan--no way to plan?
