Interesting but it won't be a cure for aging in my time. The end of the article does give a good piece of advice for us all though, while we wait to see if this could actually work.

Thanks for the article Bertotti!

Sounds too good to be true.
And it would cause big trouble with the already rapid growth of world`s population.

As long as it won`t send me back to school I personally would like to have a vew years less on my mileagecounter, though.

There was a short lived tv series a few decades, or more, ago that had an anti aging shot but some suffered severe mutations or died and all the people it worked on were isolated in some cities.

Epigenetics is poorly understood, but you can slow degenerative changes. I’m living proof. I had four stents placed in the autumn of 2021. Just in time. I’d never have seen 72 without them. I started cardiac rehab in January of 2022, finished in May, felt better and went on vacation. When I got back I opened a gym membership in a high zoot fitness center. I’m on a six day workout cycle. Even g*d needed a day off. My workouts take about 150 minutes from warmup to post workout stretching. I pay for the trainers. They’re worth every penny. I’m lifting 60% to 80% more than when I started. My conditioning workout is getting more rigorous all the time.

What’s different?

I’m diabetic but my blood sugar is under such great control that I no longer need to check it. My weight is down below what I weighed in college and I’ve bulked up. I threw out most of my pants and belts and replaced them with new stuff from Tommy Bahama and Polo. I bought two fitted shirts. I’ve never worn fitted shirts before. I aced my nuclear stress test reaching and holding the top speed and incline my cardiologist uses for testing.

Aging hasn’t reversed but my health has improved dramatically. I eat less, sleep better, and enjoy life. I’m not into mindfulness, but my thinking has changed. My outlook has improved.

One way my thinking has changed is that I treat the fitness club as my job. I work hard. I don’t take sick days. In fact I haven’t been sick. I can’t defend my days of eating and drinking too much. I was an engineer who lived in hotels and airplanes. There was no time for my current regimen. But maybe I should have retired sooner. I worked until two months short of my 71st birthday. I didn’t need to. I worked to stay out of the house as much as anything else. The gym, the cafe at the gym, and the gym being near Whole Foods and other places I stop in for odds and ends keeps me out of the house just enough.

Food for thought? Maybe.

I don’t have any photos or videos (yet) of my buddy, “Big Wave” Dan. He is 73 years young and (not joking) he catches the biggest waves on his standup paddle board. Dude straight up charges when we get big surf.

Now he’s off to the South Pacific somewhere on a catamaran ocean excursion. He’s not stopping until it’s his time. What an inspiration! 🤩

Energetics (psychosomatic practices) can stave off incremental sources of subtle illness/oxidation/acidity in the body if started early enough and practiced continuously throughout one's lifetime for some people (not me)~ but that's no fun!

I heard Lux Interior say that— and he's no farmer.

There's something else to consider in terms of gradually introduced mental hygienics for purposes of subtle nonpsychological clarification. Did I say that? I did not say that!

Live a lot longer, not sure I’m ready for that. The way the world is going I’m not sure I would want to see that……I do suspect that previous generations felt the same way.

Yea I’m more fantasy and out there scoif with lots of fighting and adventure. Anything to close to real life is generally ignored by me. I read to relax and escape real life not live it more.
