What is this blog about?

If you’re like me, you want to live longer than the precious century we humans are given at best. Imagine what our species might accomplish in a thousand years, the technology we will possess, the secrets of the universe we might uncover.. This blog is dedicated to bringing you the latest news in technological advances relating to our understanding of aging, and what we can do to prevent its accompanying diseases. In the future, these advances may be the beginning of a global society that doesn’t age.

There are many ethical and moral questions that arise when talking about the ramifications of a global society that doesn’t age. What will happen to our global population? Will it spike uncontrollably or will it decline? Is impending death what makes life so special? Perhaps in the future, time will become our new currency in order to deal with these issues. We will completely eradicate age-related disease but to control our population level and to keep life special, time will have to be earned and spent. As was entertained in the dystopian science fiction movie ‘In Time’.

Only time will tell..

Once we near the end of our lives, many debilitating diseases makes our finals years not worth living. We might loose our most precious memories, forget whom our loved ones are and become unable to take care of ourselves. Many people think of aging as an inherit property of reality, however, this perspective is changing. We’re now beginning to look at aging as more of an engineering problem. If we’re able to maintain our youthful health indefinitely, the logical inference points to an indefinite lifespan as well.

Over the course of our lives, we accumulate dysfunctions in our cells. We become increasingly unable to replenish ourselves as we age. Fortunately, we are getting closer and closer to understanding why we age and how we might be able to stop it, perhaps even reverse it.

Perhaps, if we’re not under the continuous pressure of not having enough time, perhaps, if we have all the time in the world, our perspectives of what’s truly important might radically change for the better, and so too would our world.
