Achieving Immortality – Becoming a Hologram

Listen with webReader

Dmitry ItskovDmitry Itskov is a Russian billionaire, who founded the 2045 Initiative. This is an organisation that works on making immortality a reality. The idea is that one day the mind will be read into a computer, and receive holographic bodies.

Does it sound like science fiction? Well, he believes it is possible to achieve, else he would not have started it. While today’s computers don’t have enough connections to simulate the brain, quantum computing promises magnitudes greater power, making it a possibility that one day our mind can be read and we can live indefinitely inside the computer’s artificial world.

What if in the future our bodies can be cloned and our mind including our memories can be transferred back into our brand new bodies? Or perhaps our bodies must also go through transformation making it less vulnerable to injuries and with the aging process eliminated. What if all these will become a possibility in the future?

Scientists are also hacking into the universe, cutting into the fabric of space, slicing the smallest atomic components to pieces, and among others trying to understand such things as mass, gravity and time. Perhaps one day journeying back in time will become possible.

What if people from the future will regularly venture back in time and read everyone’s mind into an incredibly powerful computer system?

What if the Near Death Experience is nothing else, but our encounter with them, our experience of entering this virtual world? If that is the case, maybe death is no longer to be feared…

Millions of Stem Cells in Days

Listen with webReader

millions of stem cellsA new way has been discovered to produce millions of stem cells in days instead of months, using a new technique called OPTi-OX, a new platform technology that optimises the way of switching on genes in human stem cells. The produced stem cells can create any tissue, including those which are typically hard to access, such as brain cells. Besides brain cells these stem cells can develop neurons, oligodendrocytes, and muscle cells, but in reality any cell type in a very short time.

This research holds a great potential in the treatment of various diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and heart disease.

Age Reversing Drug?

Listen with webReader

age reversal drugA simple substance had a surprising rejuvenating effect mice, which might lead to a safe age reversing drug. The drug called nicotinamide mononucleotide (or NMN) was added to the drinking water of aging mice. After just one week the tissue samples from the two year old and the two months old mice were indistinguishable.

The NMN boosts the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) level in the cells, which is critical to repairing the DNA.

Human trials will begin in months, and the drug can hit the shelves in a few years.

Electroacupuncture Releases Stem Cells

Listen with webReader

Fletcher A. White, PhDAmazing new discovery has been made by more than 40 scientists at institutions in the United States and South Korea led by Indiana University School of Medicine researchers. According to the study electroacupuncture administered at specific immune points in the brain activated the hypothalamus leading to the release of reparative mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) into the bloodstream, that can help promote tissue repair and relieve injury-induced pain.

The research is still in the animal experimentation stage, hopefully in the near future human trial can began. Is this going to lead us into a revolution in treating injuries?

Thought Communication

Listen with webReader

mind recorderWhat if one day thought communication will become possible. To many people the prospect of reading one’s mind is frightening. How could we possibly live in the world where our most secret thoughts are no longer hidden from others?

But for people who are unable to speak, the ability to communicate by thought would be God-sent.

The technology already exists where brain implants are used to manipulate robotic limbs using thoughts, and now researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, are working on translating brain signals directly into audible speech using a voice synthesizer.
