|I've known a couple people in academia who made it into their 90's still sharp and still productive (I certainly have enough projects to last me another 50 years) but it is incredibly rare.|
The general rule vis aging is "use it or loose it." Very likely remaining productive into advanced years contributed to their longevity. Becoming cognitively and physically inactive at 69 invites the reaper.
