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


The queen of the Nile did just that, Cleopatra use to bath in man batter in order to keep her self looking young.


SUUUUUREEEE. That's why she did it.

Well, at least I understand a good bit of the Jap-Fap now.

Genetic Engineering may be the answer.

I too, look into potential life extension with telomere. The problem is telomere isn't the only factor at work, there is also what people considered to be DNA damage and mitochondrial damage. Lengthening telomere might lengthen the life span by a small degree, but your life won't go on forever just by adding more telomere. Now what I looked into further is the ability to revert any cells back to its stem cell state using four transcription factors as shown by a Nobel winning scientist from Japan. By reverting any cells back to its stem cell states have reverted the DNA damage, mitochondrial damage, and ultimately the telomere length. Don't ask me how it does it, this result is still being studied, it is just presented in an article. So does reverting cells to stem cells really is the key to reverse aging with transcription factors? I further looked into the regeneration ability of lizard, think of it as a side project on wound healing, and what I found is that a set of microRNAs are triggered during the wound healing of lizard. This same response, I believe, is also triggered by the wound in humans. What microRNA is is an RNA strand capable of activating or silencing of gene expression. For lizard, the wound site triggers the change in microRNA, and change the cells at wound site to a blastema or I refer it to as lizard stem cells. So could it be that for human wound healing the same microRNA is triggered at wound site and create stem cells to heal? Well the human regeneration ability isn't as good as the lizard, and lizard isn't by far the best out there, some scar tissues would form instead of regenerating the tissue. My original idea is to trigger wound healing at a specific site, let's say the brain, and have the microRNA works out at replacing the tissues. Now keep in mind that the gene expression is still being studied, simply because there are too many combination of genes and there is really no way to test it, what would happen if we turn on this gene and disable the other one, you wouldn't be able to tell until you actually run an experiment on it. That is the frustrating part of unlocking the mysteries of DNA. Now to take this one step further, by observing the immortal creatures in the world, leads me to someone who suggested the immortal jelly fish. How the jellyfish does it is it transdifferentiate itself back to the younger stage when it becomes too old or being wounded. As for how the jelly fish does it, again my guess would wound or old age trigger the release of microRNA and begin the transdifferentiation process. You would argue that, why can't we just do the same transdifferentiation process in humans. Well, we are not sure if human cells are designed to do this, other than that, again the many combination of genes are still be studied. If we can design a mechanism that would mimic the immortal jelly fish and transdifferentiate all the cells in our body back to an earlier stage, well, that just might be what we are looking for. Until then it is going back to experimenting what microRNA can do. My idea is to study an entire organism using laser spectroscopy in molecular detail. Think is there isn't a detail image of molecular DNA in action, most of the animation we see are not real as I've heard. So well, if anyone here in Crunchyroll has a better idea as to study DNA and cellular differentiation let me know

As long as we can be young and virile forever, that is all that matters.

days would probably become more shorter, humans would become more violent

increase chance of human race species going destruction

technology and products would be more efficient then ever

people would probably get fatter and lazier

some people will strive for pride, jurisdiction and destruction probably

animes might change and stream for 50 hours, movies might change to 100 hours

people would probably change their minds to live on the internet

other species such as dogs and lions would probably over run human species

addiction and crave would probably increase, government and society would probably be a disaster

Uh yes not dying?

There is no reason to want to die imo

OVERPOPULATION BABY! WE ARE ALREADY GROWING SO FAST, LETS GROW 12x FASTER.


or make those who become immortal sterile.

No need to not allow immortality due to people who have kids.

Well, topic like this is brought up because we are getting close to being immortals

Being alive for 23 years is torture enough, 1000 years is out of the question. Also, the world will end eventually so everything that you could gain in that time frame would be all for naught.

Well its worth it living imo and eveything we gain already is all for naught.

The other way to achieve this is digital immortality. You can turn into anything, become anything. Have unlimited food, adjust your own weight, your appearance.
