Let’s formulate the task of life extension slightly differently

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, sex

Something like this…How can we extend sex appeal?

Gyms and beauty salons are in charge of this question now. There is some success, but it’s mostly superficial. Plastic surgery only masks, but doesn’t delay the processes of aging.

Expanding sex appeal is a complex task. Its aspects include both beauty and the activity of the brain. To be sexually attractive we have to be smart and fun. One cannot solve the problem of dementia with makeup.

Gender Sterotyping? —Not so Fast!

Posted by in categories: education, journalism, sex

There is a stark contrast between the cover stories in current issue of Boys’ Life –vs- Girls’ Life. [see it here]. The Boys cover effectively urges males to learn, build, think and question assumptions. But, the Girls cover wonders “Oh My! What will you do with your hair and nails today!

Although I am a feminist—and readily jarred by the juxtaposition of contrary messages—I am giving editors at Girls’ Life a ‘get out of jail’ pass this time. It may not be the sexism that it seems.

[Originally published at AWildDuck under my pen name, “Ellery”]

Jennifer Wright (@JenAshleyWright) kicked up a firestorm last week, when she tweeted a photo of two side-by-side magazines on a newsstand. The contrast between cover features of Boy’s Life –vs- Girl’s Life is startling. With characteristic sarcastic wit, she tweeted:

“Why are you feminists always complaining?
We treat boys and girls exactly the same.”

Scientists Argue the US Ban on Human Gene Editing Will Leave It Behind

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics, law, sex

As the biotech revolution accelerates globally, the US could be getting left behind on key technological advances: namely, human genetic modification.

A Congressional ban on human germline modification has “drawn new lines in the sand” on gene editing legislation, argues a paper published today in Science by Harvard law and bioethics professor I. Glenn Cohen and leading biologist Eli Adashi of Brown University. They say that without a course correction, “the United States is ceding its leadership in this arena to other nations.”

Germline gene modification is the act of making heritable changes to early stage human embryos or sex cells that can be passed down to the next generation, and it will be banned in the US. This is different from somatic gene editing, which is editing cells of humans that have already been born.

Sony has filed a patent for contact lenses that record and store videos with the blink of an eye

Posted by in categories: energy, sex

If you’ve seen the dystopian nightmare fuel that is BBC’s Black Mirror, you might be getting the “No no nos” about Sony’s latest patent application — ‘smart’ contact lenses with a built-in camera that can record, play, and even store videos right before your eyes.

With Google and Samsung having already filed patents for contact lenses with tiny, built-in cameras, these things seem inevitable, and they have the potential to change everything about the way we interact with each other… for better or worse.

So yep, that means in the future we could all be playing back recordings of old conversations to our friends and family to win an argument, or, you know, watching a ‘greatest hits’ compilation while having sex with our significant other. But we have more faith in the good of mankind than that, right?

How Forgotten Baby Memories Rewire Learning in the Brain

Posted by in categories: neuroscience, sex

Interesting article on toddler memories. I was actually speaking with my mother on Sat. and shared with her 3 distinct memories that I had before age 3. One in the crib seeing my grandmother, second was my first rocking horse, and 3rd was 2 pet birds.

She (my mom) thought that I would have remember building a step staircase out of my grandmother’s drawers of her 6ft chest, and climbed up to sit on top of the chest so that I could throw down my grandmother’s powder on the floor. They saw a cloud of smoke from the powder coming out of the room; and found me.

Just sharing because I am always amazed at how brain sensory and memories work.

You may soon be dating a sex doll

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI, sex

Your next sex-buddy may be made of silicone, designed to your specifications and willing to put up with even your most outrageous quirks – much to Noel Sharkey’s chagrin. The emeritus professor of robotics at Sheffield University in the UK is blowing up over the proliferation of realistic sex dolls.

According to the Daily Mail, Sharkey and other academics are voicing concern about the dolls and a new generation of sex-bots that may one day have full-blown speech recognition.

At that point, the profs warn, fabricated mates may become as prevalent as Internet porn and wreak havoc with our love lives. “What if it’s your first time? Your first relationship?” Sharkey asks. “What [will] you think a man or woman is? It will get in the way of real life, stopping people from forming relationships with normal people.”

Sex robots to become a reality

Posted by in categories: ethics, law, robotics/AI, sex

The debate over them highlights one of the more controversial aspects of the increasingly social nature of our interactions with robots as they move from factories into our homes and someday, our bedrooms.”

“‘How we treat robots — it’s a mirror of our own psychology in a way,’ said Kate Darling, an expert in robot ethics at MIT’s Media Lab.


Advancements in machines that can mimic human beings are raising a host of new ethical, legal and moral questions.
