Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Every year human life and history is diminished by the deaths of great scientists, artists... people. But what if someone had discovered a real "elixer of life"—say a hundred years ago? The world would certainly have followed a different course, as Damon Knight details in this slyly funny short story.
