#53: The Longevity Dialogues Part 2, Selling the Science, with Aubrey de Grey, Nir Barzilai, and Keith Comito

“Ageing is, simply and clearly, the accumulation of damage in the body. That’s all that ageing is.–Aubrey de Grey

It’s that simple. Or so say Aubrey de Grey and his many followers in the gerontological and biotech communities. But the sixty-four dollar question is: how does the message disseminate to the rest of the world? Regulators…legislators…the public at large…they all need to understand the viability of this research, and the very real benefits that humanity could gain if it succeeds. No, it’s not there yet, and no, there are no guarantees that it will ever get there. But the probability of success grows with every passing breakthrough, day by day. In this episode of The Longevity Dialogues on Seeking Delphi,™ we discuss the ins and outs of Selling the Science. The panelists:

  • Aubrey de Grey–chief science officer of the SENS research foundation and author of Ending Aging.
  • Nir Barzilai, MD- founding director of the Institute for Aging Research, at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. Author of Age Later.
  • Keith Comito–Founder and president of the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation.

Podcast #51: The Longevity Dialogues Part 1, The Long View, with Sergey Young, David Wood, and Jose Cordeiro

“What I’m after is not living to 1,000. I’m after letting people avoid death for as long as they want to.”–Aubrey de Grey

It’s all so complicated. Back in January I hosted a panel entitled The Dawn of Superlongevity: Scenarios for a post-aging future. I hoped to address many of the issues involved in getting to radical life extension–and dealing with it. We barely scratched the surface. In that light, this is the first in a series of Longevity Dialogues. In this installment, we explore some of the challenges and logistics involved in implementing radical life extension, as well as the implications for the very meaning of human life, should we attain it. Our panelists:

  • Sergey Young–XPrize innovation board member, founder of the Longevity Vision Fund, and author of The Science and Technology of Growing Young.
  • David Wood–Chair of the London Futurists and author of The Abolition of Aging
  • Jose Cordero–Author of La Muerte de las Muerte (The Death of Death) and former candidate for the European parliament.

Podcast #40: Scenarios for a Post-Aging Future, with Aubrey de Grey, Elizabeth Parrish, David Wood, and Keith Comito.

“For me, the key to longevity – and immortality, in a sense – has to do with transformation.”–Marilyn Manson

Is transformation the key to immortality?  A better question is: will radical life extension–the end of aging–in itself be transformative?  I believe the answer to that second question is a resounding yes.

In this special Seeking Delphi™ podcast, four of the world’s biggest thought leaders and advocates for ending aging discuss implications and issues involved in achieving human rejuvenation therapy, and begin the discussion of what a post-ageing world might look like.  We only scratched the very surface on the latter issues–there will be more to come on the subject.
