  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

If you can find it the show Curiosity with Adam Savage did a really good job covering this and basicly yes near imortality will be possible.  Great show.
The Myth Busters guy? I'll check it out. Hope it is on Netflix of otherwise online.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Scientists already know that sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone) lengthen telomeres.

For men they can safely upregulate their testosterone production by taking D-aspartic acid with an aromatase inhibitor.
1. D-aspartic acid - This is one of humans essential amino acids. To get a high enough dose you'd be looking at a gym supplement unless you fancy drinking 2 litres of milk a day.
2. Aromatase inhibitors - Lots of Blueberries, strawberries, grapes, cherries, blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrents, cranberries, etc.

The side effects are it makes you aggressive, gives you a high sex drive and makes your genitalia grow. For women you need a source of estradiol or to take D-aspartic acid with aromatase (I dont think you can legally buy it).

D-aspartic acid is turned into testosterone by the human body and aromatase converts it into estrogen.

I dearly hope not.

If we ever manage it, it will be worst type imaginable, as us humans would probably just screw it up. We'd be able to live for hundreds of years, staying at age 75 or so, not in our 20s, knowing our luck!

If we live forever, nothing will ever change, will it? The same people will continue to be in charge, it will never get passed down onto future generations to put right our wrongs.

i've already put my plan to live forever into action.
so far, it seems to be working....

"well we've ruined all the good bits, and cut down all the trees, and dumped the radiation into the deep blue seas.
we've ploughed up so much country just to get from A to B, just to move that little bit faster, in our five-speed luxuries-
just to move that little bit closer, to the world on your tv's."

I think with how far humanity and science has already come it would be silly to say something is impossible.
