Immortality

Immortality is eternal life , being free from death, unending existence. [2] Some modern species may possess biological immortality . Continue Reading

Longevity escape velocity

Longevity escape velocity (sometimes referred to as Actuarial escape velocity [1] ) is a term used in the life extension movement. It is a hypothetical situation in which life expectancy is longer than the time that is passing. For example, in a given year in which longevity escape velocity would be maintained, Continue Reading

Life Extension Institute

The Life Extension Institute was an organization formed in the United States in 1913 with the philanthropic goal of prolonging human life through hygiene and disease prevention. [1] Its organizational officers included Many celebrity-philanthropists Such As William Howard Taft , Alexander Graham Bell , and Mabel Thorp Boardman goal aussi genuine medical experts Including William James Mayo , Russell Henry Chittenden , and JH Kellogg and a “Hygiene Reference Board” of Mazenick Porcher Ravenel and dozens of nationallyMajor General William Crawford Gorgas . [2] Continue Reading

Indiafinite lifespan

Indefinite lifespan (Also Known As indefinite life extension or bio-indefinite) is a term used in the life extension movement and transhumanism to Refer to the hypothetical longevity of humans (and other life-forms) under the conditions in qui aging is Effectively and completely Call Prevented and treated. Their lifespans would be ” indefinite ” (that is, they would not be ” immortal “) because of survival. Such individuals would still be susceptible to death by disease, starvation, accidents, or deliberate killing, but not death from aging. Semantically, “indefinite lifespan” is more accurate than ” immortality ” which, especially in religious contexts, implies an inability to die.

Ifood (isotopic food)

iFood ( isotopic food) contains nutrients in which some non-radioactive heats are isotopes (such as 13 C and 2 H , derived from C 4 -plants). Biomolecules that incorporate isotope heavier cells give rise to more stable molecular structures with increased resistance to damage associated with aging . [1]The inclusion of heavy isotopes may be active (selection for heavier isotopes) or passive gold (incorporation reflecting the existing abundance). Consumption of foods relatively rich in heavy isotopes, especially at the early stages of the organism’s development, is linked, so far hypothetically, with enhanced longevity . [2] [3] Consumed with food, some biomolecules (eg, essential amino acids ). Molecules that contain heavier isotopes are less prone to destructive effect of free radicals (which is the key point of the free-radical theory of aging). [4] Continue Reading

Leonard Hayflick

Leonard Hayflick (born 20 May 1928 in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania ) is a Professor of Anatomy at the UCSF School of Medicine , and was Professor of Medical Microbiology at Stanford University School of Medicine. He is a Past President of the Gerontological Society of America and a founding member of the National Institute on Aging (NIA). The recipient of several research prizes and awards, including the 1991 Sandoz Prize for Gerontological Research, he has studied the aging process for more than thirty years. He is known for discovering that humancells divide for a limited number of times in vitro [1] (refuting the contention by Alexis Carrel that normal body cells are immortal ). This is known as the Hayflick limit .

Hayflick limit

The Hayflick limit or Hayflick phenomenon is the number of times a normal human cell population will divide until cell division stops. Empirical evidence shows that the telomeres associated with each cell’s DNA will get slightly shorter with each new cell division until they shorten to a critical length.[1][2] Continue Reading

Gerontechnology

Gerontechnology is an interdisciplinary academic and professional field combining gerontology and technology . Sustainability of an aging society depends on its effectiveness, including assistive technology and inclusive design , for innovative and independent living and social participation of older adults in good health, comfort and safety. In short, gerontechnology relates to the environment , health , housing , mobility, communication , leisure and work of older people. Research outcomes form the basis for designers ,builders , engineers , manufacturers , and those in the health professions ( nursing , medicine , gerontology , geriatrics , environmental psychology , developmental psychology , etc.), to provide an optimum living environment for the widest range of ages.

Digital immortality

Digital immortality (or ” virtual immortality “) is the hypothetical concept of storing (or transferring) a person’s personality in more sustainable media, ie, a computer, and allowing it to communicate with people in the future . The result might look like an avatar behaving, reacting, and thinking like a person on the basis of that person’s digital archive. [1] [2] [3] [4] After the death of the individual, this avatar could remain static or continue to learn and develop autonomously.
