Reverse Aging Fri, 13 Jan 2017 07:08:22 -0800 gpfraser 1900@/discussions George Church is suggesting that within 5 or 6 years age reversal might be possible.  I think more money effort and focus should be placed on this effort.  I am concerned that the religious and the elites will prevent those not in the small group $$$$$ from achieving improved lifespan.  

George indicates they are working on 65 different tests in which they modify the epigenetic via crispr.  The epigenetics are modified via crisper to have the expression more similar to a young cell.  Thus the time clock in our cells is reset.

At what point does a person lose their status as a rightholder? Sun, 20 Nov 2016 14:37:20 -0800 tooandrew 1825@/discussions

1)Do you consider a Human life to be more valuable than that
of another species? If so, what makes them more valuable?

2)If an artificial intelligence achieved self-awareness (or,
at the very least, appeared to have achieved self-awareness), and expressed
unhappiness about being forced to do whatever work we had previously been using
it for, would it be morally wrong to continue forcing it to do that work? Would
it be morally wrong to wipe its hard drives, thus snuffing its consciousness out
of existence? Is its consciousness more, less, or equally important as that of
a biological human being? That of a dog?

3)Would it be immoral to do the same to a human intelligence
and personality that had been transferred from a biological body into a
computer, or a cluster of computers?

4)If you believe that a digitized human intelligence with no
links to its former body holds greater weight than an artificial intelligence
that never had a body, what is the distinction you see between the two? If they
experience the world in the same way, experience the same emotions, and have
the same capabilities, why would one be more valuable than the other?

5)If you believe that a self-aware artificial intelligence
holds the same moral status as a digitized human being, at what point of
sentience did the computer achieve its moral status?

6)Assuming that the human in question must have been heavily
modified in order to even interface with the computer that was soon to house
his or her consciousness – perhaps even already having their mind linked online
to a sort of artificial intelligence before the transferrance of consciousness -
did that individual have moral status before the procedure?

7)Do you believe that it is truly possible to translate a
human’s consciousness into ones and zeros? If so, what parts of that human, if
any, do you think would be lost in translation? If not, why not?

8)If we could copy one being’s consciousness into a computer
without killing them, does the digital copy have the same moral status as the
physical being? Are the two of them the same person, given that an identical
copy was successfully made? Does the divergence of the experiential aspects of
each of their lives cause them to become different people in the future?


CALL TO ACTION: Magnetic Injection Procedure Fri, 29 Jul 2016 09:29:01 -0700 Zerbula 1655@/discussions
I'll willingly admit that I don't have a ton of exposure or experience here in the biohacking community, but I still appreciate being an active member. I love learning and researching and understanding ideas, and helping to educate others and encourage their ideas, providing critiques and new ideas to explore, the like. ^^

Injection of magnets is a recurring set of questions that has popped up over and over. To site the extent of some of my own personal encounters on the forum,  

This is a call to action itself. I would love to see the Injection procedure made an 'official' method for implanting of magnets. So far, the only method that's explained in the Wiki is the scalpel method, which does work, but... The injection method appears to have many benefits and differences, giving more options to grinders, new and veteran, prospective and established. 

I understand elements of this procedure, But I still am not quite as well versed with the process. I intend upon starting the wiki page and establishing what I can. Please help me fill in what I can't. :D
Papers behind paywalls Mon, 19 Dec 2016 07:55:04 -0800 Aeris 1877@/discussions If any of you need papers, but dont have free access, I might be able to help. I should be able to get most engineering papers out there and some medical ones (mostly medical engineering) with my uni's access.

Just ask and I'll try to get them out here.

On a related note, are there plans for a file repository of some sort?
Power Generation with Polypropylene Ferroelectret Nanogenerator (FENG) Sun, 18 Dec 2016 15:38:38 -0800 ChrisBot 1876@/discussions So I was browsing the interwebz, and I saw this in my feed. 

They have demonstrations of the researchers pushing on the device and lighting up 20 leds just by pushing on it (admittedly quite forcefully). What do you guys think?

Also if anybody has the means to tear down this paywall it would be much appreciated!

Parylene Coated Magnet Implants Tue, 06 Dec 2016 01:58:55 -0800 masterjasper 1860@/discussions I found some magnets on SuperMagnetMan that look pretty good, they are a good size for implant and are rated N52. I was previously planning on coating a magnet in rhodium, but I haven't found a jeweler who is willing to do this. Parylene should be safe to implant though, right? As long as there is no defect in the coating? These guys seem to think so. 
I would of course examine the magnets under a microscope and test them in a saline solution before implanting. Just wondering if anyone has had much success with this, and if it is safe.

PM me if interested, or have any questions. I can ship anywhere.

Anyhow, I'm speaking at the austin thing in jan. Also anyone who wants to help plan grindfest let me know.

The biohack village at defcon was fantastic last year! We were talking about doing more planning and such amongst the grinders so there's that. 

Chironex and Glims have their thing...

So what else is coming up in 2017?
