Health, Tech + Philosophy: Upgrading Medical Care In The USA

How can medical or healthcare in the USA be upgraded? By incorporating the latest non-invasive technologies, with some of the oldest concepts and philosophies. Western [colonized] medicine has been held back and stunted by nonsensical institutionalized barbarism against biology and nature. What strikes me and many others I’ve talked to, is the small mindedness ofContinue reading “Health, Tech + Philosophy: Upgrading Medical Care In The USA”

Bio + Evolution: Human Stem Cells Are Infinitely Regenerative

Human stem cells contain the potential of infinite regeneration and pluripotency means they can become any type of cell. They do so by mitotic cell division, and mitosis is asexual. So, asexual reproduction occurs within the human body. Mitosis is run by a cell cycle system; the phases are activated by advanced interactions of enzymesContinue reading “Bio + Evolution: Human Stem Cells Are Infinitely Regenerative”

Environment + Space: The Importance Of Bacteria & How Cyanobacteria Create Habitable Atmospheres

We are here thanks in large part to microbes and bacteria. And Cyanobacteria, of blue green algae, are among the oldest organisms around, known fossil records dating back billions of years. Cyanobacteria created oxidation, or photosynthesis, which in turn formed Earth’s atmosphere. Accumulations of cyanobacteria even helped shape the terrain. We are here because ofContinue reading “Environment + Space: The Importance Of Bacteria & How Cyanobacteria Create Habitable Atmospheres”

Bio + Health: Noninvasive & Sonic Stem Cell Therapy

Non-invasive longevity medicine is the new frontier. And life wants to LIVE. We’re populated and supported by *trillions of microorganisms. And if they couldn’t learn and adapt, we wouldn’t be here. Breaking down the word “Mesenchymal” as in Mesenchymal stem cells, reveals the Ancient Greek words for middle, tissue and infusion. Stem cells, often referredContinue reading “Bio + Health: Noninvasive & Sonic Stem Cell Therapy”

Olympic Lifting & Beyond: High Performance and “The Hard Deck”

The title here is an unabashed Top Gun Maverick reference. The hard deck is the zone below 10,000-5,000 feet at which a pilot is flying close if not fatally close to the ground. I’m using the hard deck here for some humorous hyperbole, comparing this with pushing oneself in athletic performance past previous limits orContinue reading “Olympic Lifting & Beyond: High Performance and “The Hard Deck””

Biochemistry + Health: Hair Is Made Of Valuable Elements Including Stem Cells

Check out this structural diagram. Looks like something alive and important to me. Looks like a muscle fiber diagram! Perhaps because hair contains nucleic acid and mitochondrial DNA. And DNA is some of the most advanced technology around. Hair is no more dead than the soil. It’s composed of fibrous keratin, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogenContinue reading “Biochemistry + Health: Hair Is Made Of Valuable Elements Including Stem Cells”

Health + Performance: Taking The Cold Plunge

On the first hot summer day here in Boston, Cryomed on Boylston Street offered a cold plunge tub on the sidewalk in front of their store and after I saw the e-mail decided to go for it. I’d never done a cold plunge or ice bath before but I’d heard and read about many healthContinue reading “Health + Performance: Taking The Cold Plunge”

Bio + Philosophy: Human Physiology Is Technology & Voluntary Evolution

The new modern idea of voluntary evolution is available by making deliberate choices. Yet for all my enthusiasm about this new frontier, one area I’m at odds with is the literal fusion of electronics with the human body. I mean, we’re already fusing with our daily interaction and tech habits — Think on the molecularContinue reading “Bio + Philosophy: Human Physiology Is Technology & Voluntary Evolution”

Bio + Philosophy: Debugging The Death Program By Increasing Intracellular Intelligence & Mitochondrial Performance

“Death is optional.” — Yuval Noah Harari The key to immortality is evolving beyond death. That means first treating it as a possible and optional outcome, instead of an inevitability. This could be a powerful step that causes physiological, intellectual and emotional change, like meditation alters brain chemistry. The mere fact that this concept isContinue reading “Bio + Philosophy: Debugging The Death Program By Increasing Intracellular Intelligence & Mitochondrial Performance”

RE-POST: “Sound waves convert stem cells into bone in regenerative breakthrough” — RMIT

“Regrowing or replacing bone lost to disease is tricky and often painful. In a new study Australian researchers have found a relatively simple way to induce stem cells to turn into bone cells quickly and efficiently, using high-frequency sound waves.” — Read on newatlas.com/medical/sound-waves-stem-cells-bone/ YES! I’ve been writing about sound tech the past couple years,Continue reading “RE-POST: “Sound waves convert stem cells into bone in regenerative breakthrough” — RMIT”

Maximizing Human Regenerative Processes, Part 4: Deep Learning Biology To Realize Immortality

The pieces necessary to live indefinitely are already in place. Each of us inhabits a powerful vessel, the human body, with vast potential. After all, look at how far life has come. We can continue knowing ourselves even better in the 21st century and beyond, and appreciate the fascinating intricacies of our composition. This PartContinue reading “Maximizing Human Regenerative Processes, Part 4: Deep Learning Biology To Realize Immortality”

The Longevity List — What’s Working For Me

1. Experiencing Timelessness. Be on a timeless scale. Live as if life is all. Clocks, schedules and dates are merely tools. Have an open-ended mindset. 2. Meditation, Affirmation & Prayer. Believe and re-program, say what you want, atone, give thanks, purify, connect to outer and inner cosmos. 3. Stellar Self-Care & Self-Talk. Enjoy the maintenanceContinue reading “The Longevity List — What’s Working For Me”

On Cellular Immortality: Reverse Transcriptase Lengthens Telomeres

First of all, Telomeres are located at the ends of our chromosomes, coiled DNA in nuclei, and contain repeated nucleotide sequences. They are the end cap data sequence and lengthen in response to cell division. How so? An enzyme dubbed “telomerase” aka “telomere terminal transferase” cues the repeat. I say ‘dubbed’ because in a seaContinue reading “On Cellular Immortality: Reverse Transcriptase Lengthens Telomeres”

Re-post: Biologists unravel pathway for cancer cells to become immortal | Iowa Now

Biologists at the University of Iowa have unraveled a second pathway by which cancer cells multiply without end. Using baker’s yeast as a model, the biologists explored Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres, a second pathway that cancer cells use to become immortal. — Read on now.uiowa.edu/2021/03/biologists-unravel-pathway-cancer-cells-become-immortal ME: Let’s get this straight — renegade Cancer cells becomeContinue reading “Re-post: Biologists unravel pathway for cancer cells to become immortal | Iowa Now”

Maximizing Regenerative Processes Part 3: The Human Circuit, The Infinite Self

Transformation from archetypical self to infinite self is both philosophical and physiological. The infinite self is multifaceted and maleable. To be experienced, one must allow it. An archetype is a model or example that can be copied or emulated. In mythology and literature, a common archetype is the Hero, and a classic Hero’s Journey isContinue reading “Maximizing Regenerative Processes Part 3: The Human Circuit, The Infinite Self”

Maximizing Human Regenerative Processes Part 1. Sun Up, Sun Down

The earliest known forms of timekeeping, which is an expression of long term thinking, were found in the Semliki Valley of the modern day Congo, as a “hash-marked” bone dated 18000 BC,¹ and from later in 8000 BC, moon-shaped pits dug in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.² More elaborate forms of timekeeping came with aboriginal and Meso-American cultures,Continue reading “Maximizing Human Regenerative Processes Part 1.
