Can Life Extension and Death Reversal Become A Reality by 2017?
edited April 2016 in Everything else
I have studied many aspects of Transhumanism and one that really intrigues me is the Renanima project on which I had the privilege of interviewing Bioquark CEO Ira Pastor. With 30 years of experience in the industry, Ira said that life extension and death reversal can become a reality through reanimation. Can gene editing work? What is the scope of neuro-regeneration? Can we create the perfect world? Live Longer? These are the big questions that are coming up even as CRISPR gene editing makes the impossible possible. It's a bright, brave new world alright!
Death reversal or stopping the aging process well nothing good can come from it. The world has just about hit carrying capacity now imagine what happens when we stop dying all together....a world of pollution and tightly packed people is going to cause so many other problems that I wouldn't want to be alive to see that day.
But the extended life really is happening every year people keep living longer and longer I really do think this way of expanding life is going to keep going because it's based on the way we are living. It's just going to keep improving.
Over population will still be a problem the difference is we could go some place else but that isn't going to fix the fact that there is still going to be more and more people with less and. Less resources.
even a one kid rule won't help. How many rules have you actually broken? How many times do you break the law? What's gonna stop people a fine? Did a fine stop you from speeding?
Also people tend to have kids with intending it....sex is fun after all.
I don't believe that it will stay that way. Human population fluctuations are the same as any animals they go up they go down and the middle ground is the true number. There have been countless surveys on woman who are choosing layer age (late 30s early 40s) to have/start their family's.
I'll try and find articles if you need me too.
As for later ages to start having families, currently, there is a steep spike in offspring having genetic issues the closer you get to and the more you pass 35...
I agree populations flux. I just think it's weird to make a declarative statement about one thing without evidence and then make another declarative statement about another thing contrary to evidence.
I wonder what kind of I'll effects might happen if your looking at people having kids even later?
Would you need to change every cells DNA?
