Terence Mckenna’s ‘cyberdelic’ predictions for Virtual Reality 25 years on

Posted by in categories: computing, cyborgs, life extension, neuroscience, transhumanism, virtual reality

Cannot wait to hear Mckenna’s perspective on BMIs for brain connection to all things digital, and microbots used to extend life as well as bionic body parts.

Famed psychonaut Terence Mckenna envisioned a very radical approach of bridging psychedelics with virtual reality to create a supercharged version of consciousness in which language, or rather the meaning behind what we speak, could be made visual in front of our very eyes.

In Mckenna’s “cyberdelic” future of virtual reality, artists and the revival of art, would be at the forefront of innovation, according to a talk he gave to a German audience in 1991.

How genetics regulate ageing

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

“Finding that GDF11 levels are under genetic control is of significant interest. Since it is under genetic control, we can find the genes responsible for GDF11 levels and its changes with age,” said the study’s senior author Rob Pazdro, assistant professor at University of Georgia in the US.

Scientists have shown that a hormone instrumental in the ageing process is under genetic control, introducing a new mechanism by which genetics regulate ageing and disease.

Now this is an “outsider candidate”: Zoltan Istvan, a Transhumanist running for president, wants to make you immortal

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

A story from Salon on transhumanism:

While we have a rare combination of candidates with a real chance of taking the White House — a woman, a Jewish socialist and a real estate magnate — there’s another you probably haven’t heard about: a Transhumanist.

Zoltan Istvan, 43, the leader and founder of the Transhumanist party, has entered the race as a third-party candidate promising the “facilitation of immortality.” Istvan, who lives in California, first made headlines when he set out on a cross-country campaign tour in a bus shaped like a hearse last September. His main philosophy: enliven America’s technological advancement by combining humans with machines, to improve and prolong life.

The Major Mouse Testing Program

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension


What is the MMTP? The MMTP is an ambitious project, designed to radically speed up the rate of progress in the field of regenerative medicine and aging research.

The project is the brainchild of our parent organisation, The International Longevity Alliance, a nonprofit foundation for science advocacy and research. The testing and discovery of compounds and treatments to delay or stop the processes of aging is a slow affair, with very few high quality, high impact studies conducted each year.
