Good morning everyone, I wanted to bring another fascinating topic to light here this morning and it’s the subject of being able to reverse aging. Seems far fetched right? But it’s not and in fact we’re well on our way to being able to do just that. I’ll share some great videos and links with all of you so you can do your own research into the subject.
Personally I’d love to stay alive and healthy as long as possible even virtually indefinitely if the science gets to a point it’s possible which is actually very likely. Another interesting fact since this is a cryto community you’ll find it interesting to know cryto holders and even one very well known creator has been huge in funding this research.
This is also Aubrey’s website for his foundation which is helping fund and do research to help reverse the damage as get as a result of aging. Take a look around the site lot’s of good information there.
What Is Aging?
Listen to one of the pioneers in this industry explain, but there are many players in this field to defeat aging whom are doing amazing work.
Dr. Aubrey de Grey
You’ll see tons of related videos here as well there is a lot to absorb. But I will share as much of what I found as I can. Below I will put a list of some people and companies working on this however not even I know all of them so I will post some key players which when you look into them you’ll find more and more on the subject.
People helping to reverse aging:
Dr. Aubrey de Grey - SENS Research Foundation
Elizabeth Parrish - Elizabeth ( Liz ) Parrish is the CEO of BioViva, a biotechnology company that focuses on developing gene therapies, and other regenerative therapies, to intervene with human aging
George Church - Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard and MIT.
Peter Diamandis - Human Longevity, Inc. (HLI)
These are just a few but more can be brought up as people comment on the post. Another honorable mention due to his high level of accuracy in predictions is Ray Kurzweil currently working with Google. He’s a big supporter of this technology too and predicts within 10-15 years we’ll have this quite close to solved.
Companies/Foundations Working On Aging:
- BioViva Science
- Human Longevity Inc
- Lifespan IO
- Oisin Biotechnologies
- AgeX Therapeutics
I’ll stop there, the list goes on and on really, this is just an example of how big it’s gotten. We’re on the cusp of a new era for all human kind and a very exciting one at that.
Another big question is why would you want to keep living for say 100s, 1000s or even 10s of thousands of years of even far more. It’s a hard concept to fathom for most since it’s alien to most people and something most aren’t aware of as of yet.
Why keep living? Won’t we get bored? Etc.
My answer is because life is amazing and imagine living till we become a multi planetary species seeing all kinds of new worlds. Imagine experiencing all the amazing technologies coming in the future like being able to one day experience true virtual reality indistinguishable from our own in realness where you could go on any adventure you can dream up. There will be so many incredible things to see and do that at least to me would virtually never end. I’d spend time doing what I said above in addition to learning new languages, acquiring a vast array of new skills I otherwise would have never had time for.
The possibilities are endless, all that said of course it won’t be for everyone, I just feel the option to extend healthy human life spans should be available to those whom wish to do it.
Another beautiful thing about this technology is in the long run it’s not JUST about extending life but it could very well mean the end to medicine. In other words the elimination of all disease one day where we are incredibly healthy due to the highly advanced medical technologies and therapies that will be created.
Imagine no more Cancer, no more Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or any other horrible nasty degenerative condition you can think of. Also this technology is aiming to not just reverse aging damage this also means you’d be youthful the optimum age far as health and appearance is generally around 25 meaning once it advances enough you could be biologically say 500 but look, feel and be as healthy as someone who’s 25.
I’ll end with a few videos for you all.
Great channel that uploads all kinds of videos about ending aging and the science of it.
Once you go through those it’ll lead to countless more videos that go over all of this. I hope you all enjoy and give your thoughts on the subject. Oh and also I messaged SENS about accepting ETN for donations earlier today too. If they don’t respond to my comment I will email Aubrey directly and see if I can get them to accept it.
