Apple and Eli Lilly studying use of iPhones and Apple Watches to detect signs of dementia

Interesting and important work, no doubt.

I do wonder if I’d like to know if dementia, or Alzheimer’s is coming my way. For me, it’s similar to the question of knowing the exact day I’m going to die. I do think there’s value for those around me, no question. And if there’s a treatment, of course, it’d be critical to know so I can maximize my chances and my quality of life.

But there’s a psychic toll to knowing something is coming for me, something relentless, dark, and inevitable.

Would you want to know?
