I imagine the large perk to being a billionaire is the ability to put millions of dollars into fantasies around shaping the future. I’m glad to read that Peter Thiel has turned his attention to research on aging, which may well result in some good science getting done, even if it doesn’t achieve his dream. That’s a much better target for his fortune, than building a floating Galt’s gulch.
