Our generation has been handed the most exciting opportunity in the history of humanity. We might be amongst the first to overcome aging or at least extend our healthy life spans for an extremely long time.
It's a unique opportunity that we want to use to our full advantage.
... immediately improve our health and well-being
... directly reverse chronic diseases
... be as healthy at the age of 70 as we are at 30
... stay free of the diseases of civilization and aging for all of our life
... extend our youthful lifespan by decades or even longer
Almost unnoticed by the general public an incredible scientific revolution is in the making.
The vast and often unused medical and biological knowledge available today provides exciting opportunities to immensely improve our personal health, to reverse chronic diseases, to dramatically lower the probability to fall prey to the diseases of civilization and to extend our healthy lifespan.
In labs around the world, new drugs and advanced therapies like stem cell treatments, gene therapies, and medical nanotechnology are researched. The first generation of true rejuvenation therapies like young plasma therapy and senescent cell clearance is currently under development. These awesome technologies already aim at slowing or even reversing some aspects of our aging process and might become available soon.
In the future, a multitude of molecular and cellular repair technologies, which are by now on the drawing board or are even already under development, will allow us to undo the damage caused by our aging process bit by bit. They will help us reverse and eliminate the root causes of the diseases of aging and slow down, halt or even reverse our aging process.
Using these three exciting developments in the right combination can have an extremely positive impact on our healthy lifespans.
Given the right strategy and a lot of dedication, we might be amongst the first to overcome aging or at least extend our healthy life span for an extremely long time.
This will greatly benefit us and our loved ones on an individual level, as well as our economy or society as a whole.
On top of the immense personal benefits extending our healthy lifespan will allow us to spare our loved the suffering caused by the often year-long burden we would eventually place on them should we fall prey to the gruesome diseases of civilization and aging. Quite the contrary: It will allow us to take them along, let them access the same level of extended healthy well-being.
Our knowledge-based economy can thrive on engineers, managers, and scientists. Instead of losing their youthful energy and mental capacity as they age during their career, they will still be as physically and mentally as fit at the age of 65 as they were at the age of 30, albeit with 35 years of training and experience.
It will remove the pressure from our pension systems since people do not have to retire at a certain age but can decide to continue working in the job they love.
Due to improved and prolonged health, particularly in old age, the cost of our healthcare system, which is currently accelerating out of control, will become financially feasible again.
Above all, dramatically extending our healthy lifespan by decades or even hundreds of years will profoundly change our outlook on life. It will foster long-term thinking and allow us to take on worthwhile projects that last for decades or even longer.
All of this is within our reach ...
