Reverse Aging And Live A Longer, Healthier Life With This New High-Tech Tool

Posted by in categories: life extension, robotics/AI

Tech world innovator and serial entrepreneur, Naveen Jain, has just launched VIOME, a product that has the potential to forever change the way we look after our health. Riding on the growing awareness in the West that gut health is the foundation for all health, VIOME is a tech product with an artificial intelligence component used towards the in-depth analysis of the gut and metabolic flexibility.

What does that mean? It means that you will know exactly what’s going on in the gut, monitor it quarterly via a simple in-home test, and then employ the recommendations VIOME provides to reach your optimal healthiest living to—ultimately—live a better, longer life free of chronic illness.

But, wait. There’s more.

Radicals — Outsiders changing the world

Posted by in categories: geopolitics, life extension, transhumanism

Jamie Bartlett’s new book Radicals features #transhumanism in his opening chapter. He’s on a book tour and discusses his time on the Immortality Bus for about 10 minutes in this video below:

Society is badly served by the limited set of ideas which occupy our cultural mainstream. To cope with the increasing pace of change, we need big new ideas. Where might these ideas come from?

Pensions time-bomb for world’s biggest economies could explode to $400 trillion, says WEF

Posted by in categories: economics, life extension

Future generations are on course to become enveloped in the biggest pension crisis in history, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF), unless policymakers from the world’s leading economies take urgent action.

The Geneva-based organization predicted the challenges of an ageing population could result in the world’s largest economies being forced to tackle a pension time-bomb.

Analysis from WEF showed six countries with the biggest pensions, including the U.S., Canada, U.K., Netherlands, Japan and Australia, as well as the two most densely populated countries in the world – China and India – would face a retirement savings gap in excess of $400 trillion in 2050, up from around $70 trillion in 2015.

Treating Diseases with a Protein Missile System

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

A novel way to target proteins in cells could lead to undruggable diseases being treatable.

Researchers at the university of Dundee have shown that it is possible to target and destroy specific proteins within cells using a new directed protein missile system. This is very interesting as it raises the possibility of targeting aberrant proteins present in diseases that currently have no drug that affects them.

This opens the door to treating a range of diseases as well as potentially being useful in directly targeting proteins involved in the aging process. Before we take a look at the research let’s recap on why proteins are important, what they do and how they relate to aging and diseases.

Zoltan Istvan: How the Immortality Bus Changed Transhumanism Forever

Posted by in categories: education, geopolitics, life extension, transhumanism

In early 2015, when transhumanist US Presidential candidate Zoltan Istvan announced he would transform a 38-foot bus into a giant coffin and drive it across America to deliver a Transhumanist Bill of Rights to the US Capitol, many in the transhumanism community reacted with contempt and ridicule. Two years later, the Immortality Bus–created as a provocative symbol of resistance against death–has become one of the most recognized futurist projects in the world. The New York Times called the bus “the great brown sarcaphogus of the American highway…a metaphor of life itself.”

Today feature films, documentaries, and even a likely final home in a major museum are being worked on for the Immortality Bus. Hear Zoltan Istvan describe his captaining of the “coffin bus”, and learn what really happened during this historic journey.
