Firstly, the radiation resistance. I've been reading up on a study that was working on a new way to treat radiation sickness. In the study, they took a sample of e. coli and subjected it to radiation. After 99 percent of the sample died, they let the population grow back. After twenty iterations of rinse and repeat, the team created a sample of e. coli that could reverse the effects of radiation. Then, you take a sample of your blood. You then bind the e. coli to the sample and inject it into yourself. Now, you have a bigger radiation tolerance than most people.

I think it's mainly a very complex translation process for 1) useful functions, 2) frameworks for patterns, geometry, compression, etc. 3) shared abstract memories shared at the species level or a sub scope of some sort 4) check systems 5) a merging system that's specifically adapted for the potential of mutations and maybe tries to harness "mutational noise" 6) ... I could think about this more but I got work to do.

What do you all think?

I wonder if A.I. systems & genetic algorithms incorporate this today.

Real & theorical symbiosis usage in bio/gene modifcation http://forum.biohack.me/discussion/1931/real-theorical-symbiosis-usage-in-biogene-modifcation Tue, 07 Feb 2017 17:01:04 -0800 SymbiosisIsKey 1931@/discussions media take off in many ways since the 1940s sci-fi boom. Whether it be the idea of alien creatures
from other worlds bonding with people(The Venom family of Symboties, Guyver Units and so on). Or plants, parasites and biomedical made
creatures hybridized with humans to something more(Metal Gear's The End, Parasyte). But we also have rather real
possibilities for symbiosis, as shown by microbiota, already available in the real world. For those unaware we
have an ecosystem of things living within or on us that make our life generally
easier and we are keeping them fed, sheltered and safe for lack of a better analogy. As my name and the title suggest, I believe deep down bio and gene modding can be improved if we push elements of symbiosis further, we'd just need to bio and gene mod other creatures as well as ourselves. Imagine if we could improve the proteins a medical leech(Hirudo Medicinalis) produces to increase better blood flow through out more of the body while still feeding it. Or taking any of the many elements of helminethic therapy (using what is normally considered parasitic creatures as helpers to tackle issues) and modifying their genetics to improve other things within us; namely to the point they become mutually beneficial to us and no longer a hazard.

Have you had thoughts of this? Do you know anyone actually trying to do this?  Ever catch a glimpse of someone possibly on to something and want to share? I've read a few topics on here that dip into on this subject and wanted to unify it with one topic and get people who have had it on their minds.

We should have them ready soon. Basically, I'm just making sure that I can get the amounts right and not scorch your eyes. The papers and patents we have access to are very specific in some regards and very vague in others. As @Cassox mentioned, this chemical is used in lazering cancer cells (my paraphrase) so obviously, exploding your eye bits by tiny molecular focuses of daylight would... suck.

Progress is being made. It's just me reading and then mixing things together and measuring light bits.

For those who are ready to chip in and talk about that patent, their amounts are theoretical and were used just to lock the patent down. Got get this right so nobody gets hurt. Eyes are important

Anyone have any questions, let me know.

Has anyone shot yourself with Capsaicin? http://forum.biohack.me/discussion/1646/has-anyone-shot-yourself-with-capsaicins Fri, 22 Jul 2016 11:27:48 -0700 opi 1646@/discussions
I'm interested in its effect on systemic pain nerve degeneration to become a pain-free-forever cyborg, but I also heard it can give you a sense of "high". So yeah, for recreational or whatever other purposes, I'd like to hear your adventures with Capsaicin! :)

Some stuff I think I know about Capsaicin:
- desensitize TRPV1 nerves by destroying them
- better to inject intrathetically to minimize systemic side-effects while killing main spinal pain nerves
- systemic temporary side effects include bradycardia, apnea, body temp decrease

Since I can't inject in my own spine, the most practical way seems to be into a vein.
My hypothesis is that if I inject very little each time, it will affect the heart and respiratory functions minimally, and some Capsaicin will end up in the CSF, killing a few pain nerves there, and if I repeat this many times, I can eventually get rid of most pain nerves.

We ended up take an older iPad that has basically been put away and wiped then added baby apps to it (simple games and such) she seems to target one game and one other app which is basically a kids version of youtube. she has mastered the game and will scroll through the youtube app looking for the video she wants.

This too me makes me think about memory or knowledge being passed on to our kids, not through teaching but genetically. I know she likely learned how to navigate by watching us and by trial and error but it just seems too fluid and quick. 

Is it possible that a baby actually has this innate knowledge from what their parents have done or even their ancestors? why wouldn't, if its possible, they be able to hold onto that knowledge from further back? we see it in animals who instinctively know how to survive and what danger is from a young age.

If I'm right could baby speak really be something more then just gibberish? There is plenty of people ( and videos) of sibling babies having conversations with each other. could it really be a combination or remnants of previous languages that existed before?

I know this is a pretty out there thought (even for me). Thoughts?

Hypothetical Data Storage in B Cells http://forum.biohack.me/discussion/1755/hypothetical-data-storage-in-b-cells Sun, 02 Oct 2016 08:14:31 -0700 Jupiter 1755@/discussions
I was thinking about how one could tell the immune system to ignore a certain material or other organism (which goes back to my idea to implant an independent organism to serve one of many functions). In thinking about all this, I thought about how the immune system in most mammals had a sort of "memory" that identifies previously encountered diseases. I thought, "what if we could 'identify' a custom made disease, thereby remembering the disease structure and using that method to store data".

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I'll admit that the whole process by which B Cells go about remembering diseases is somewhat complicated and I don't understand it very well. I did think that it's a wild idea that I doubted anyone here had come up with before, so I bought I'd bring it up for discussion. I'all point out that I tend to feel that inorganic technology is easier to scientifically test and experiment with and as a result easier to develop and more reliable to use, so if given the choice, I'd rather have some sort of implanted electronic mass storage device, not my immune system idea, but... discussing it anyways. ]]>

genetic modification ethical and moral issues http://forum.biohack.me/discussion/1679/genetic-modification-ethical-and-moral-issues Wed, 17 Aug 2016 17:49:41 -0700 Jordygordy 1679@/discussions obviously no one is going to be modifying their genes in their garage today or anytime in the near future (and if you are, please message me because i want in on that action). So as a community I would like us to stay a bit ahead of the game and open up a discussion now on what we think is and isn't ok and maybe consider forming some sort of community guidelines; obviously we won't be able to enforce anything, but recommending and discouraging possibly dangerous modifications should be considered. 

For instance, I suggest we don't edit any genes that can be passed down to future generations, so that means nothing in the testicles/ovaries and nothing with eggs/sperm. 

The complications of this are unknown and risking the lives of our children and future generations isn't worth the risk especially if enough people screw up their genes, they could ultimately alter the evolution of humanity.

Another issue, making sure we don't accidentally create anything lethal that could cause some sort of disease or something.

With that being said, I would say any other genetic modifications are ok. Everyone here is ok with stepping into the unknown and risking danger and harming their bodies for the sake science and be so go at your own risk. 

so lets open this up and add in what else we should try to discourage or what we should encourage /  what direction we should go in.

New biotech DNA company http://forum.biohack.me/discussion/984/new-biotech-dna-company Fri, 10 Jul 2015 11:20:19 -0700 Instant_Chemistry 984@/discussions Hi Everyone,

This is my first post to the community.  

My wife and I started a biotech company in 2014 that uses genetic and
psychological testing for the dating industry. We have expertise in genetics
and neuroscience and a passion for making DNA testing accessible to everyone.
We've recently launched a new product called Gemetrics which will allow you to
explore three neurogenetic variants that have been strongly linked to
behavioral traits (for under $50).

My longer term goal is to develop an inexpensive a la carte platform
that will allow you to anonymously test and compare your genetic traits to
everyone else on the database and discover what makes you unique. When that
platform is ready, you'll be able to find your genetic uniqueness and then
exploit it as much as possible.

I'm coming to you to explore which other ideas or tests you want to see
created?  We've got the lab and the people to do it!











Would love to hear from you...
