More "technology" hype.  "Intimacy with one's own body" is what every person should have, but more and more computer technology regarding anatomical and physiological variables and imagery at one's fingertips will only go so far.  Until much, much more information regarding what is going on scientifically and medically in the human body as aging and then the slow, then fast slope towards the ultimate demise is finally known and watched out for, all of that "intimacy" is pretty worthless.  As seen with my own father's passing this June, the mountain of information I had and understood in all of the physiological monitoring, blood work values, radiology, pathology, imaging, and expert reports couldn't prevent my anguish as a medical scientist or the doctors from shrugging their shoulders when I asked what is going on and why he cannot be saved.
