Bio-robots And Biohacking Your Way To Longevity.

No Comment 83 Views

We’re getting older, but we’re getting stronger, as advances in health technology are raising expectations for an elongated lifespan. Getting older no longer means an inevitable decline as a booming bio-science market fuels longevity as a lifestyle choice. The near future holds the promise of genetic treatments that cure diseases rooted in our DNA, as well as diagnostic machines that travel through us, or remain inside us. There will be nano-machines that repair at the cellular level and neurochemistry that can slow or stop the biological clock as it relates to brain function.

Dave Asprey, (Founder & CEO of The Bulletproof Executive) whom we sat down to dinner with at the last SXSW, is an interesting example of someone successfully biohacking his own body. Having spent between $250-300K and 15 years practicing, he has discovered how to achieve a “state of high performance where you take control of and improve your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control your decisions. It used to take a lifetime to radically rewire the human body and mind this way, if you were lucky enough to even know it was possible. Technology has changed the rules.”

On the flipside, Robert Freitas, author of ‘Nanomedicine’, states that Nanoscience is already producing bio-robots. “Hybrid robots built from engineered structural DNA, synthetic proteins, and other non-biological materials are expected to emerge in the 2020′s. Finally, by early 2030′s or before, researchers will construct completely artificial devices; nanorobots guided by computed software, capable of protecting every cell in the body from disease and injury.”

The question is, all of these advancements will help us to live longer, but will we prosper?
