best summed by his wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Bezos

In September of 2021, Bezos co-founded Altos Labs with Mail.ru founder Yuri Milner. Altos Labs is a generously-funded biotechnology company dedicated to harnessing cellular reprogramming to develop longevity therapeutics.[5] The company has recruited prominent scientists such as Juan Carlos Izpisúa Belmonte (known for work on rejuvenation through reprogramming), Steve Horvath (known for work in epigenetic aging clocks), and Shinya Yamanaka (the Nobel Prize-winning inventor of cellular reprogramming in mammalian cells).[5] In his final letter to Amazon shareholders, Bezos quoted geneticist Richard Dawkins thus: “Staving off death is a thing that you have to work at…If living things don’t actively work to prevent it, they would eventually merge with their surroundings and cease to exist as autonomous beings. That is what happens when they die.”[5]

Clinical immortality sounds so great until you realize that you're going to be the generation that began passing their rulers down to the next.
