Seeking Delphi: Podcast #19, Ending Aging with Aubrey de Grey

“Aging is mostly the failure to repair.”–Gregory Benford

One man who agrees wholeheartedly with Gregory Benford is Aubrey de Grey.  He’s the author of Ending Aging, and chief science officer of the SENS Foundation, a 501-(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to researching the reversal of human aging.  His approach focuses on 7 areas of cellular and molecular damage, the repair of which he believes are be the keys to effective rejuvenation therapy. He joins me in this episode of Seeking Delphi™ for a lively discussion on the present state of the anti-aging art.

Cosmic Quote #93

“We view ourselves as separate from the cosmos, and separate from each other. The truth is, we are a continuum.  One line of code in an enormously  complex computational system.”–Gray Scott

 

Let’s just hope that code isn’t corrupt.  I have my doubts.

Cosmic Quote #92

“I tell you, we are here on earth to fart around, and don’t let anyone tell you different.”–Kurt Vonnegut

I always knew Kurt Vonnegut was a class guy.  As for the kid in the cartoon? I think that’s an 8-year-old Benny Hill.
