FOURTEEN

LIVE TO 100

Break your physical — and emotional — addition to carbs.

The Lancet:

We documented 5796 deaths and 4784 major cardiovascular disease events. Higher carbohydrate intake was associated with an increased risk of total mortality

Intake of total fat and each type of fat was associated with lower risk of total mortality.

Total fat and types of fat were not associated with cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction, or cardiovascular disease mortality, whereas saturated fat had an inverse association with stroke. Global dietary guidelines should be reconsidered in light of these findings.

We got the truth completely wrong.


LIVE TO 500

To remain alive for 500 years we will likely require regularized, if artificial, stimulation of our brain, coupled with nerve, flesh and muscle regenerative technologies.

Scientists are making remarkable progress at using brain implants to restore the freedom of movement that spinal cord injuries take away.

Progress:

(Dr Gregoire) Courtine wanted to prove he could get the monkey walking again. To do it, he and colleagues had installed a recording device beneath its skull, touching its motor cortex, and sutured a pad of flexible electrodes around the animal’s spinal cord, below the injury. A wireless connection joined the two electronic devices.

The result: a system that read the monkey’s intention to move and then transmitted it immediately in the form of bursts of electrical stimulation to its spine. Soon enough, the monkey’s right leg began to move. Extend and flex. Extend and flex. It hobbled forward.

Using monkeys is unsettling, I know, though I suspect that as the world replaces real meat with fake meat, animals will become more widely used as test vehicles for radical life extension techniques.


LIVE FOREVER

“So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.”

I know. You can’t possibly allow yourself to believe in…Jesus Christ. I am not here to convince you otherwise.

Only to remind.

No rational, honest, intelligent, considered human could possibly believe:

“When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.”

And yet, virgin birth — implanting a fertilized egg into a woman — is now so common as to be forgotten.

But the common is not what fascinates me, rather that to come.

Behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

And…

Being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, (the wise men) departed into their own country another way.

And…

When they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt.

When do we still mortals possess this similarly fantastical technology? Inserting dreams into another’s brain, just as we insert the fertilized egg into the virgin?

Could this be a means of ‘living’ forever?

Our words and wisdom, voice and image inserted into another’s dreams.

Until we conquer physical death, this may have to do.

Not good enough?

Agreed.

But imagine those already dead, yet always with you, able to literally appear before you, speak to you — while you sleep. That’s not nothing.
