This presentation, a spin-off of the research for the techno-thriller, A REMEDY FOR DEATH, explores the growing investments by today’s “smart money” in Radical Life Extension–a blanket term for an array of bio-science and neuro-science approaches to extending human life and reducing the effects of aging and illness.
As a character in A REMEDY FOR DEATH puts it, “What we’ve built here is a Jurassic Park for rich old guys like us who want to come back into healthy, horny 21-year old bodies complete with all our accumulated savvy from this lifetime.”
And life is imitating art: TIME magazine ran a cover story “Can Google solve death,” and in BUSINESS INSIDER, “These tech billionaires are determined to buy their way out of death.”
The infographic provides a brief overview of some of the research actually being done now: growing human organs in labs; growing human “spare parts” within both humans and animals; using new three-dimensional printers to build bits and pieces of human organs from living tissue and human stem cells; generating replacement human organs made-to-order using scaffolds and “spray-on” cells derived from patients’ own tissues, then multiplied in test-tubes; even research on growing and grafting human brain cells into humans and chimps.
And good news! This infographic IS NOT a plot-spoiler for A REMEDY FOR DEATH!
