Valhall When most people hear about anti ageing, for some reason they think that all it does is keep the person alive...while they continue to grow old (LOL and when i say "you can live to 200" they think theyd look like a corpse. But this is wrong. the anti ageing drug resets the "body clock" gene, causing the body to start reproducing cells, throughout your body, of a child, young man, dpending on how much of the drug is put into your system. SO your wrinkles etc would disappear, your organs would be like new, and you would physically be young young again, inside and out. BUT you wouldnt turn into a baby or anything, just things that constantly produce new cells all the time would just produce baby cells, your body structure would remain the same.



Okay - I'm all over that. But you've got to promise me I'll still know who I am and where I'm at. If you'll do that - I'm all over your future!

I pity the fool who lives forever...

Dyin' aint so bad..in fact, it's the most pleasurable experience of your life, medically speaking. Your brain's last gasp is a doozey..you know how some people say heroin is better than sex? Well..death is better than heroin, if you absolutely must rate varying degrees of bliss.

That being said, if anyone gets a good source for this treatment, shoot it my way. Never said I wasn't a fool...

I suppose the shut off valve is built in, in the sense that a person could make the decision to stop receiving treatments at any time...

The telemorase should return if the inhibitors are not restocked...

Then there's the concept of body switching...

If we had the technology to regrow brain cells, or rather, to insure that they continue to multiply past the limit, then you could conceivably have a VERY large brain after not too long...

We might have to pluck those big squishy lobes out of our craniums and deposit them in robots, or mainframes, or networked bank vaults...

Ahh..the future is going to be amazing. It never fails to impress.

I'm old enough that I'm amazed at the present, never mind the future.

And to realize that the future's unpredictable. Look back at the old sci-fi magazines of the 40s and see what they say about the year 2000. Most of the "projections" didn't come true, but lots of things NOT projected, did.

For the over population thing, there's an idea to populate Mars by sending robots to make the planet hospitable for humans.
There's also an idea to aim an ice comet at the planet to make water, and then wait to see what happens.. but these plans would probably take thousands of years for a hospitable Mars to even happen.

No silly! if that was the case then even normally we'd have huge brains if they kept growing! when cells reproduce they REPLACE dead cells, and the old ones probably decompose, flake off or come out in our poop or sumat.....

Scientolgy, the answer to all on man's mental ills, but you have to get a lot of people to read the book dianetics.

Also Nasa seems to be making several breakthroughs in the exploration of space. Limited again because of the War on Terror. The chinese appear to be copying. Japan seems limited because of political disputes with China.

Iran even though are advanced seem to be at a stand still, because of the War in Iraq: more people dispatched to protect the borders from Iraq refugees. Also with their unique government which seems to be making remarkable progress since the Iran Iraq war, is still a little behind in and too caught up in controlling its citizens.

I see all religions dated around chist and mohamad, as being detrimental to human society. If you think about it, religion in todays world has outlived its use. Not being hypocritical as scientology is more modern as in it was created in the 20th century, therefore being more relevant and more beneficial to human survival.

But to get off the planet, or find another energy source other than the sun would require more funding in NASA's direction, but at the same time there are other factors such as the economy. Also the economy comes first, without an economy there's no NASA and no space exploration for that matter.

The real question is whether the economy can hold, and withstand the test of time to bring us into the future.

Ermm technoligies seem to do the most improvement during the wars... And seeing how in the last few decades we went through like 2 or 3 I know we went through WW2 and desert storm... But with all the conspiracies of the endtimes coming it probablly wont matter... 2012on like dec 26th i think were all supposed to die... Not to mention the North Korea and Iran threat of Nucclear capabbilities right now... If i were to guess within the next 100 years we all will either be surrounded in nuclear waste or dust floating in the wind lets just hope it isnt true...

Peace not EZ

i doubt we will see past 2020. weapons will get too advanced for us we will probably blow ourselves up mebe the mayan thing is an advancement in weapons. Mebe we won't fully understand the advancement and instead will kill ourselves from the many labs. Then there is the terrorism issue it is only a matter of time 'til they get their hands on this kind of shtuff. we can't get rid of them all.

Depends on how old you are, and for some reason I don't think you're under 30 (no offense or anything I know how Women can be about the Age thang
) Those Under 30 will have a good chance at seeing their 200th birthday...if they can afford it. You see the more technologically advanced we get and the more of us that live in cities the less children we will have, it's not a theory its a proven fact gleaned from over a 100 years of declining birthrates in every single western country. Japan is a great case study of what increasing urbanisation and an aging population will have on us all. There will be less young people in societies that value knowledge over brawn. The average amount of children in Canada is something like 2.1 children per family(adjusted for immigration same stat as that of the USA) that is barely enough to keep our population stable, we might HAVE to extend our lifespan if we are to strike a balance as most estimates I have read say that the Earths population will level out somewhere between 7-10 billion people and then start to fall quite rapidly after that.

The ONLY way to combat overpopulation without resorting to genocide is to bring the rest of the world to our standard of living and in a couple of centuries(should we survive that long) we will all be talking about the lack of children and plummeting birthrates worldwide. In the Country Children are an asset as they are more hands to help on the farm, in the city it's the opposit as they become a financial liability in the end which is why it's odd to see families with more then 2 children nowadays in North America. A 100 years ago 4-5+ kids was the norm my how times have changed.

Stuff that! If they hurry up with anti ageing tech then people under 60 will get to see their 500th birthday!


Also already great measures are being planned out to combat the inevitable overpopulation crisis. Their is plans for a cone shaped building which, if you can visualize the size, can hold an entire city, it has its own habitats, malls, schools, infrastructure etc within the walls of the great tower. their is also plans for a huge (HUGE) pyramid structure with pods at each intersection and levels etc. (think geomag - (google it)

Trust me the ONLY way is up........or perhaps WW3.......then when we rebuild 4.......etc

Do a search on "city inside a pyramid" japan is looking into making a manmade structures off various coastal cities, each will be able to house 400,000 people including workplaces, parks, everything.

There are a number of problems associated with it right now

* sinking into the ground with the immense amount of weight involved

* actually constructing it is beyond our current technology - nanotech might provide some solutions here

* can we mass produce these things or create even crazier structures on land to spread people out?

How is nanotech going to relieve construction difficulties on such large mega strucutures. I don't seem to understand, what solution do they offer to which problems?

means more refinement of automated machinery, and stronger materials, its not even my opinion, its what they said in the documentary, go argue with the japanese scientists hehehe.

Hydrogen fuel cell powered car...not water.

also...about the whole agre thing...just because there is a small breakthrough in a lab doesn't mean that it will soon become common place.
I have very high expectations for the future...and I know that we wont wipe ourselves out like some people here seem to keep on predicting.

Also...even if terrorist get there hands on a nuke or 2 and blow it up in a big city...that wont stop anything...meaning the human race will survive, and we'll keep on getting more and more advanced.

oh...and WyrdeOne...it seems your a little to anxious to die, personally I prefer living.
