In the next 20 years with advances in biotechnology and nanotechnology age the way we view it today will be obsolete.

This is a form of transhuman that will allow us to live longer.


A new book by two industry titans predicts that in the near future everyone will have a digital “alter ego”.

One big AI advancement that the two tech gurus predict will be created within the next 20 years is the advent of digital assistants. We are not talking the current versions of Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana or Amazon’s Alexa, but assistants that control all aspects of your life, knowing everything about you (with your permission). Internally, Microsoft uses the words “alter ego” or “a second self” to describe the kind of amazingly sophisticated digital help you’ll be getting.

This is why my top goal is to be transhuman by 2029....

Super humans who are sexier, stronger and smarter will arrive by 2029 as brains begin to fuse with machines, Google expert claims

By 2029 our brains fuse with machines - an event known as singularity

He says machines will exemplify what we value in humans to a greater degree

Machines are already making us smarter and will move inside our brains soon

2 interesting studies on reverse aging:


1) Researchers report promising anti-aging rapamycin clinical trial results

Researchers just reported promising rapamycin clinical trial results in the first of its kind test of the drug’s safety and anti-aging effects on healthy Senior adults. [This article first appeared on LongevityFacts.

A rapamycin clinical trial using healthy adults recently completed and reported the drug to be safe over the short-term when used for anti-aging purposes.

This clinical trial of rapamycin was one of the first testing the compound’s safety as an anti-aging drug in healthy Seniors. The clinical trial consisted of 25 healthy older adults 70-95 years between the ages of 70 to 95. The study participants took either a placebo or 1mg rapamycin daily for eight weeks. The main finding of the study was that the drug was safe, without significant side effects. The researchers published their results on February 3 in the journal Experimental Gerontology and concluded

2) NMN and NAD Reverse Aging of Blood Vessels in New Study

Harvard professor Dr. David Sinclair reports that the NAD boosting NMN compound reverses aging in blood vessels and restores muscle strength in a new study published March 22nd. [This article first appeared on LongevityFacts.

Using the NAD boosting molecule NMN, Dr. David Sinclair’s team reversed blood vessel and muscle aging in mice, while boosting their exercise endurance. As Dr. Sinclair says

“We’ve discovered a way to reverse vascular aging by boosting the presence of naturally occurring molecules in the body that augment the physiological response to exercise” adding “The approach stimulates blood vessel growth and boosts stamina and endurance in mice and sets the stage for therapies in humans to address the spectrum of diseases that arise from vascular aging.”

The team says the achievement paves the way for similar therapies for humans and published the results of their study on March 22 in the journal Cell.

The LongevityFacts link is an online pseudoscience website and is distorting the claims in the actual study.

Here is a link to the actual study: A randomized control trial to establish the feasibility and safety of rapamycin treatment in an older human cohort: Immunological, physical performance, and cognitive effects

The purpose of the study was to see if there would be any toxic effects in older patients. Meaning how well can older patients tolerate this compound. Out of the 11 RAPA patients who were actually administered rapamycin five of them reported adverse side effects.

Additionally:

...statistically significant decrements in several erythrocyte parameters including hemoglobin (HgB) and hematocrit (Hct) as well as in red blood cell count (RBC), red blood cell distribution width (RDW), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) were observed in the RAPA-treatment group.
Does that really sound promising to you?


Also please go back and read post #408...I've already discussed the Sinclair study and what it's purpose was in that post.

With everything going on in biotechnology yes. I suspect we will have reverse aging in the 2020’s and I still think by 2023 but by 2029 at the latest.

I have figured out how to do it but I am not telling.

There are too many people on the planet already and I am stockpiling weapons for when it really gets bad.

There are no credible verifiable sources that you have provided that make such claims. No research is being conducted for the purpose of "reverse aging".

Here are just a few things you can look up:


1)

QUT researchers have developed a new drug that has the potential to dramatically slow the ageing process and delay, or even prevent, major diseases in humans, including cancer, Alzheimer’s, Type 2 Diabetes and arthritis.

The Scientific Director of the Cancer and Ageing Research Program (CARP), Associate Professor Derek Richard from QUT’s Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, said the breakthrough was built upon years of research focused on the ability of single-cell organisms called archaea to survive in harsh conditions, including the boiling, sulphuric acid pools of undersea volcanoes.

Aging Reversal tests in dogs by 2019 and then in human tests by 2022 if that works

6)

A pill that staves off aging? It's on the horizon

7)

Anti-aging products from skin creams to chemical peels are part of a $250 billion industry, but scientists have yet to discover a longevity elixir that stands up to medical scrutiny. A group of researchers believe they’re getting closer, however, thanks to a compound called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+ for short.

“NAD+ is the closest we’ve gotten to a fountain of youth,” says David Sinclair, co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School. “It’s one of the most important molecules for life to exist, and without it, you’re dead in 30 seconds.”

And this:

Aubrey de Grey: Treating ageing as a curable disease
Aubrey de Grey is chief science officer at the SENS Research Foundation, which is trying to develop therapies that will repair the damage that the body does to itself throughout life.

He believes that ageing can be treated as a disease that can be cured.
