After Shock, Podcast #19 redux: Ending Aging, with Aubrey de Grey

“Your future self is watching right now through your memories.”–Aubrey de Grey

 

The newly released volume, After Shock, features 50 of the world’s most renowned futurists reflecting on the 50-year legacy of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock, and looking ahead to the next 50 years.  Seven of the contributors have been guests on Seeking Delphi™  This is the  sixth in a series of repeats of these podcasts, which will lead up to panel discussion with some of the authors, on the book and the Toffler legacy.

Aubrey de Grey is co-founder and chief science officer of the SENS foundation, and a leader in the global research effort to end aging.  This program from 2017 was the first of four appearances for Aubrey on Seeking Delphi.™  All of his previous programs are linked below this first one.

The day I read Future Shock, just a couple of years after it came out, was the day that started me on the course to becoming a futurist.  Here’s what I wrote on this blog when Toffler died in July of 2016.

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.

Podcast Special Edition Mini-Cast: Preview of The 2019 Ending-Age Related Diseases Conference

“As far as I’m concerned, ageing is humanity’s worst problem, by some serious distance.”–Aubrey de Grey

 

 

If we could prevent the diseases of aging, we could prevent aging itself.  We could empower “older” people to work like younger people for as long as they want to–if they want to.  In this Seeking Delphi™ special edition mini-cast, Life Extension Advocacy Foundation (LEAF) presidnet Keith Comito joins host Mark Sackler to discuss the upcoming Ending-Age Releated Diseases conference, to be held July 11 and 12 at  Cooper Union, New York, NY, USA.  The biggest names in ending research will be there to present, including Aubrey de Grey of SENS Foundation and George Church of Rejuvenate Bio and Harvard University.

Podcast Special Edition: Highlights of The 2019 Undoing Aging Conference

“A gracefull and honorable old age is the childhood of immortality.”–Pindar 

 

The returns are in.  The 2019 Undoing Aging conference, held in Berlin, March 28-30,  was a smash hit.  500 attendees (a sellout) heard the latest on dozens of lines of research to slow, stop, or reverse the ravages of aging.  At 68,  I can only hope that the progress accelerates.   In this podcast special edition, we;ll hear, once again, from Aubrey de Grey, as well as Nir Barzilai (Albert Einstein College of Medicine), Vadim Gladyshev (Harvard University) and José Cordeiro (author of La Muerte de la Muerte, and candidate for the European parliament).

But as science progresses,  we need to be looking ahead to the societal implications of radically extended life span.  To that end, I’ll be attending The Future of Longevity Impact Roadmap workshop at the headquarters of the XPrize in Culver City, CA later this month

Podcast Special Edition: Previewing The 2019 Undoing Aging Conference

“I think science has begun to demonstrate that aging is a disease. If it is, it can be cured.” 
― Tom Robbins

 

Being in the category that society generally classifies as “old people,” I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry when I look at the cartoon to the left.  But if the science progresses fast enough, and I live long enough, maybe I’ll see the day when I can just ignore it.  As the increasingly global movement to reverse human aging gains momentum, we might see the day when everyone works like they are in their 20’s, no matter how old they are.  In this special edition podcast Aubrey de Grey returns to Seeking Delphi™ to preview the 2019 Undoing Aging conference, to be held in Berlin, Germany, March 28-30.  Aubrey previously was on Seeking Delphi™ in December of 2017, episode #19. 

I’ll be attending the conference, look for me if you go.
