Foryngelse i fiksjon.

Presentasjonen i denne videoen tar for seg hvordan foryngelse (forlengelse av liv) representeres i filmer.

Kjedelig å leve lenge?

Det første svaret jeg får når jeg sier foryngelse bioteknologi kan gjøre oss ung igjen, er “Ville det ikke vært kjedelig å leve lengre?”. Så jeg skal ta for meg denne hypotesen kort.

En samtale om aldring.

Dette er en kort samtale jeg har annenhver dag.
Jeg: Har du lest om gerontologi og foryngelse bioteknlogi?
Annen person: Nei.
Jeg: Slik funker de syv aldringsproduktene som aldringsprosessen lager, og slik kan vi fjerne de, og gjøre folk yngre.
Annen person: Gjøre folk yngre? Det er jo umulig.
Jeg: Du sa jo du ikke hadde lest noe om gerontologi (aldringsvitenskap) og foryngelse bioteknologi, hvordan kan du rasjonelt mene det er umulig når du ikke vet noe om det?

Roten til alt vondt.

Årsaken til alle aldersrelaterte sykdommer kan spores til syv ting som akkumulerer over tid. Jeg skal forklare hva de er og hva forskere har planlagt å gjøre med saken.

Viagra er mer viktig enn å kurere kreft?

Vi bruker mer penger på å forske fram bedre viagra enn vi bruker på å forske fram hvordan man kan utføre denne kreftkuren som ville kurert ALL kreft. Er det et tilfelle av “ikke tenk på helsa så lenge du får den opp”?

Her er et bilde som viser hva aldring er:

Mitt liv som dødssyk.

I dag har hjernen mer vansker med å aktivere minner. I dag pumper hjertet mindre blod på hver pump. I dag har jeg større sjanse for at celler vokser ut av kontroll og danner svulster. I dag er immunforsvaret svakere. I dag tar lungene opp mindre oksygen.

Kan man kurere kreft?

Å kurere kreft har lenge vært et mål. Er det mulig, og hvis det er mulig, hvorfor har det ikke hent til nå?

Hvordan blir man gammel?

Når man går fra befruktning til å bli voksen rundt 25 år alderen, så vokser man. Hvordan vokser man? Cellene signaliserer mellom seg på en måte som instruerer cellene til å dele seg fortere enn celler dør. Det blir derfor flere celler totalt og man vokser. Men hvordan eldes man? Sier cellene “på tide å bli gammel og slutte å fungere”? Sier hudcellene “på tide å danne rynker”? Sier hjernecellene “på tide å lage plakk for å få alzheimers”? Nei.

Den eneste årsaken til at kroppen eldes over tid er at cellene mister evnen til å gjøre sin jobb slik som når de er helt friske. Men siden aldring er å miste en egenskap, kan man bli yngre med å gi cellene tilbake denne egenskapen! Les mer…

What is the meaning of life?

What is the meaning of life? The right thing to do? The right choice? And so on, are questions that bother many, and rightly so.

I realized just now that I have thought about this problem quite extensively for 7 years, and would like to share my current thinking on the subject.

Extending life is the only thing I have been unable to argue against as the right thing to do.
Finding “the best stuff” or “the right stuff” and experiencing “the best stuff” or “the right stuff” can always be argued against. But if one extends life enough, at some point you can do it all. You may have to extend life for a decade every decade for a trillion decades, putting off old age by ten years every ten years, but sooner or later you have extended life enough.
At that point you can have all property, and you can do everything that is to do. And by extending life so much you cheat, because by proxy you do the right thing, the perfect thing, the meaningful thing, the meaning of life, sooner or later. Its just a matter of time before you do it, you don’t even have to know what the meaning of life is to be sure you will one day fulfill the meaning of life, even though you can pass the moment not knowing it was the meaning of life moment.

This is a feature no other option has. There’s no guarantee the right thing to own, the right house or the right car, exists today, it may exist a thousand years from now. Same goes for the right thing to DO. It may be something that will not be possible for another million years. And how much does that suck? Knowing the meaning of life could exist a million years from now, or a billion years ago, and that all the time I have to do the meaning of life- if there is a meaning of life -is 81 years.
That sucks. But luckily I stumbled upon a tiny fact; It is scientifically feasible to reverse age within yours and my lifetime if we put a few billion dollars worldwide into it annually.
Age is not coupled to growth, so don’t worry, you won’t become younger than your 25-30 year old self. But you will have the cancer and stroke risk of a healthy fetus. How is not as complicated as you would think, its no small feat of engineering, but its far from impossible. There are only 7 types of accumulating factors that lead to aging as it occurs from age 25 onwards (the main changer before that is growth, not aging). If you then remove all those accumulated things every now and again, you reset age to zero (while not resetting growth to zero, so you’re 25 with perfect tight skin and a perfectly working brain, even if you were born 150 years ago). Read the book Ending Aging by Aubrey de Grey, PhD, if you wish to know more. And send e-mails and letters to the government about putting rejuvenation biotechnology on the agenda with a billion dollars annual budget (foryngelse bioteknologi in Norwegian).

The case for Rejuvenation Biotechnology in 872 characters.

Growth stops at around age 25, after that decay is the sole changer of your body. Seven types of decay, one of them are akin to rust on cars. Rejuvenation biotechnology is to remove this rust after it has occurred, without having to know how the rust is made.
The case against rejuvenation biotechnology is often “but its good that people die of aging to make room for new people”. But is it good that the car rusts and eventually have to be scrapped in favor of a new car? Perhaps for you, but the car ends up being crushed into a cube, so its not a good thing for the car.
Similarly, aging and making room for the next generation is very bad for you, because you end up in a box-shape whether you want to or not.
