  • Yes, that's why I recommend being discrete about these things are at worst going to a third world country to get testing done. Curing colorblindness though doesn't seem like it would be illegal so testing might possibly be done under that loophole.
  • Exactly. But think bigger than that. We are colorblind compared to many species of birds, but with gene therapy we could potentially negate that. Some of them (such as pigeons) even have five cones! That would be too much of a jump, I'd rather spend a year or so as a tetrachrome before making the jump to five, if I even…
  • What about certain genes from the immortal jellyfish? They used jellyfish genes in mammals before with glow in the dark pigs and cats so immortality could have potential. 
  • Well that's a shame, you two seemed to be a great team and know what you're doing. 
  • I'm pro-immortality myself but am greatly aware of anti-immortality academics whose opinion policy makers highly value. People would still be able to die due to the laws of physics however, just not from old age anyway. Not being able to die would suck, imagine being given that kind of immortality as a punishment then…
  • Al Jazeera huh? They're a real news organization (as opposed to FOX and MSNBC who filter their news through an upper middle class lens and neglect mentioning very important topics that effect people.) so be careful. Good luck and don't forget to practice canned responses to hardball questions. Get ready to handle questions…
  • If such a discovery were to be found then it should be kept very secret for obvious (to me, since I've read arguments by academics against that kind of thing) reasons since if it's too open then so many people would want it done, exacerbating overpopulation. If it's known but the method is kept secret then accusations of…
  • @TheGreyKnight I looked up the extraction process for Ce6, you need very specialized (presumably very expensive) equipment and a long time for it. " The following procedure was reported in Oncology Reports, 2009, 22(5). 1085-1091 by Korean scientists Yeon-Hee Moon et al. Live chlorella (Chlorella ellipsoidea) 100 g (dried…

  • If computing power is needed for something I can contribute. I have a Haswell i7 and have used Boinc before. Just in case it's needed.
  • It's okay. It's fun to speculate on the effects though. I put Congo blue gels behind my sunglass lenses because even during the daytime some cars now have their lights on and it's annoying so it greatly cuts them down and vastly reduces the distraction. One can't see green or yellow with them but yellow looks like a weird…
  • How could it effect athletic performance? Deep breathing is important for things like weight lifting and breaks during cardio. 
  • I want to help but don't have technical knowledge but can do some research. I'd volunteer but I'm far away from the lab as I'm on the east coast. I have experience with making manuka honey, MSM, and even lemon eyedrops (heavily diluted in distilled water of course, but if there's no very minor burning sensation you've…
  • What are the visual effects and what nm range are the eye drops sensitive to? Sometimes I do infrared photography with a Sigma camera and trees look pinkish red and more stars can be seen and am wondering how they'd be similar and different to the eye drops. 
  • I'd stick to the guide's recommendations for now, bioproofing and all that too. I'll implant soon enough myself. 
  • I don't know if this will be useful but this talks about sensitivity to near IR: I was looking for information on tetrachromatic and pentachromatic animals and I've…
