How a human can live to be 1000+ years old.

Telomere
A telomere is a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromosome, which protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration or from fusion with neighboring chromosomes.


Every time a cell in are body replicates the telomeres that protects and acts as a buffer for a cell shorten. Humans Cells can replicate 40 to 70 times before dying do to telomeres in are body being to short to aid are replication.

'Human bodies produce telomerase while in embryo form, if a human is able to re introduce Telomerase to are cells we can revitalize are cells allowing us to prevent cell deterioration and death.

How so? Telomerase rejuvenates Telomere and prevent shortening allowing cells to continuously replicate without deterioration or death.


With healthy Telomere created by introducing Telomerase one can say the concept of Immortality is not out of reach.

Still other factors will lead us to death so wile it would make it so we can live for 1000+ years other outside factors will eventually bring death. But at least we still look to be in are mid to late 20's and not have to fear old age and the failing body functions do to dying cells.


1. If you had the opportunity to test this would you?
2. how would this affect the world as we know it?
3, could you imagine such a world where people live for 1000's or years?

i'll not bother with 1000 -- there's no quality of life + not fond of the idea of being a guinea pig

if most of us live to 80+ i can see we will be running out of resources soon let alone 1000 yrs..

or you can put yourself on ice now and have them wake you up 100 years or maybe 1000 years from now -- if we don't already nuked each other already

If people could live to be 1000 years, I know that competition would become even more fierce, as individuals would compete to have their own long term plans in business, economic, policy, and governance to be adopted. People who say life would get boring do not consider, that many people change careers, hobbies, and lifestyles within our short 80 year lifespans. So, why not compete to be the first to govern a Martian colony? To be the first to lead a corporation to establish mining or manufacture on another heavenly body, other than Earth?

'Yes with the extended life span one would have the time to reach for the stars.. something in are short lives we don't have the privilege of. in so this would lead to humans reaching further than before because the idea that it be pointless because it take to long would become a non factor. Traveling in space, exploring new ideas. even science is hampered do to time. with are short life span so little we can finish before it ends. With the adding of time one could expand are resources far further than we have ever been able to before. We can see the end results of are hard work, sadly most people never get to see the positive or negative results of all are hard work, this is something that I would like to change. that is why I am for extending the humans life span. sorry for my ramblings its 420am I should be sleeping but as I lay in bed I find my mind pondering 2000 things at once and sometimes I need to ramble to help put things in focus to aid me to sleep/ Is that odd?

Ya know, I've often wondered, if we know this to be true, why the telomeres of reptilian species that seem to be able to live to an indefinite age have not been closely examined? Rather, how is it that the cells can reproduce without suffering from this telomere deterioration.

Telomere is largely dependent on telomerase to prevent Telomere deterioration, but do to the fact that very few living things produce Telomerase, such as the deep see Crab, who has the potential to be immortal but still dies do to other factors. So if we are to take one dormant cells and reprogram it (something are scientist have been able to do, just not to stop aging oddly. mostly to create odd effects in living life forms. ) to produce Telomerase within are own bodies. We could most likely prevent telomere from deteriorating. example of programing cells.. Go look up the companies that is working with Biofuels and Biosynthetic.

There's no sensible reason to want to live 1000 years.

I fully Disagree. In this world one could not even come close to doing everything their is to do, nor see every thing their is to see in 10,000 years let alone 1000.

We don't really know that it'd extend our lifespans at all, actually.

DNA damage happens regardless of telomere length due to oxidation stress. So cancer, which is expected to kill around half a million people in the United States this year, would still be a thing.

In fact, unless you can remove or repair all factors that can damage DNA (like the big glowing thing in the sky vomiting radiation on us every day), cancer may become even more prevalent, as telomerase is the enzyme that allows many cancer cells to reproduce indefinitely. The 1,000 year lifespan estimate you refer to actually requires that:

Cawthon says that if all processes of aging could be eliminated and oxidative stress damage could be repaired, "one estimate is people could live 1,000 years."

Source: http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/basics/telomeres/

Animals such as lobsters produce telomerase throughout their entire lives, however their lifespan is roughly half that of a human's.

Mice have longer telomeres than humans do, but live for only a few years.

The Leach's petrel has telomeres that actually grow longer as it ages.

Fact of the matter is that science has barely started to scratch at the surface of aging.

This is the separation of us into parts to attempt immortality. Direct route is to recognize everything is a matter of your choosing. To be truly immortal is to separate yourself from any others as you'll forever be independent. All perception becomes absent of others and we only know our singular self. As we reconnect we start noticing our bodies are less as others say they are and more than anyone ever wrote about in science. All this requires to move on from communicating in the way I am or bridge the divide of these words and actual immortality by learning about everything and making it understandable by others.
Works like this, we're all immortal, more you bond with more you share yourself with, more everything reciprocates longer immortality. From independence, we sought kings but not in current king way rather as someone to judge all. All original kings were immortal longer than all their masses as they were able to support individuals through much to teach all they knew, growing the masses knowledge as a whole in as masses support their king to extend immortality in all ways. Then after these leaders move on, if they were true, individuals all becomes judges once again or another way of saying it, equals. Then more changes occur and immortality became a distortion of first being recognizable similarly as others, we call it human nowadays. After many fought over pretending we're all the same, eventual so called prophets arose and began doing everything all the same except with distance from masses. Each iteration of immortality becomes less the further away from equality we go until back to equality.
Current bible is all of this after original form of choosing a leader to further everyone's immortality becomes less because of too many middle fucktards.
Overpopulation is impossible for immortals as anyone can make anything we already know.

Since telomeres are found in sperm, I just rub that on myself then?

I had trouble sleeping at night, too. I found that blue lights keeps your brain from making melatonin. It's an enzyme that makes you sleep. I covered all of the blue L.E.D.s in my room. I covered the microwave clock display, the computer, and other sources of blue light. Now I can sleep without waking up throughout the night. All I need to do now, is to get into bed at 10:00 or 10:30 at night, and I'll get my full eight hours of sleep.
