By the early 2020s, we will have the means to program our biology away from disease and aging.

Fountain of Youth

–  The Bottom Line  –

For the longest time I have been saying to my friends and family; ‘if you stick around long enough, you will start to get younger!’  Of course they thought I was just kidding or maybe just a little crazy – which of course I’m proud to be…

All kidding aside, this is what the world has dreamed of since the beginning of modern man.  Does the name Juan Ponce de León ring a bell?  You’ve heard of this guy.

A Spanish explorer and conquistador. He became the first Governor of Puerto Rico and led the first European expedition to Florida, which he named.  He is associated with the legend of the Fountain of Youth, reputed to be in Florida where you ‘just drink the water and you will stay young!’

Well maybe Juan was delusional but Ray Kurzweill is not.  The time has come so like I’ve said many times; just stick around a little longer.  A new world is about to be born….

We can stop aging by reprogramming  –  Stunning predictions for humanity’s future

Posted on December 10, 2013 by  By futurist Ray Kurzweil, Special to CNN

(CNN)By the early 2020s, we will have the means to program our biology away from disease and aging.

Up until recently, health and medicine was basically a hit or miss affair. We would discover interventions such as drugs that had benefits, but also many side effects. Until recently, we did not have the means to actually design interventions on computers.

All of that has now changed, and will dramatically change clinical practice by the early 2020s.

We now have the information code of the genome and are making exponential gains in modeling and simulating the information processes they give rise to.

We also have new tools that allow us to actually reprogram our biology in the same way that we reprogram our computers.
