Seeking Delphi Special Edition Podcast: Preview of 2019 Undoing Aging Conference featuring Aubrey de Grey

“I think science has begun to demonstrate that aging is a disease. If it is, it can be cured.” 
― Tom Robbins

 

Being in the category that society generally classifies as “old people,” I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry when I look at the cartoon to the left.  But if the science progresses fast enough, and I live long enough, maybe I’ll see the day when I can just ignore it.  As the increasingly global movement to reverse human aging gains momentum, we might see the day when everyone works like they are in their 20’s, no matter how old they are.  In this special edition podcast Aubrey de Grey returns to Seeking Delphi™ to preview the 2019 Undoing Aging conference, to be held in Berlin, Germany, March 28-30.  Aubrey previously was on Seeking Delphi™ in December of 2017, episode #19. 

I’ll be attending the conference, look for me if you go.

Cosmic Quote #96

“One human data is worth a billion mice.”–Bioviva CEO, Elizabeth Parrish**

So what about goldfish data?  And don’t even ask about the mice’s point of view on human data.  All they care about is the cheese.

**Don’t look for this quote anywhere else on the internet–yet.  It comes directly from my interview with Parrish that will air on the next Seeking Delphi™ podcast, and appear in the March issue of Age of Robots.

Cosmic Quote #79

“If Stupidity got us into this mess, then why can’t it get us out?”–Will Rogers

Here’s a hint.  You can’t fix stupid with stupider. Maybe the biotech industry can come up with a solution.  But then, who am I to argue with Will Rogers?

You can check out my lame attempts to make the world a little less “stupider” on my futurist blog (and accompanying podcast) Seeking Delphi.

(Frozen) Cosmic Quote #77-3.0

“Cats are smarter than dogs. You can’t get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.”–Jeff Valdez

Jeff Valdez obviously doesn’t know our dogs.  We can hardly get them to go outside to do their business when it snows.  Pull a sled? Hah! We used to have a nasty little Spitz named Miles.  The Spitz is also sometimes known as The American Eskimo Dog.  Miles was having none of it.  We literally had to pick him up and throw him outside when it snowed.  Dogs are smarter than you think.

(Frozen) Cosmic Quote #77-2.0

“A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.”–Carl Reiner

Call me freezing.  A few minutes ago–never mind how many exactly–having no life at home and little to keep me in the house, I thought I would set out and see the snowy part of the world.  That lasted exactly 15 seconds.  Home Sweet (and warm) Home.  This weather sucks.  Stay inside, my friends.

Cosmic Quote(s) #34

“I hate Disneyland.  It prepares our kids for Las Vegas.”–Tom Waits

My first ever trip to Vegas was an inadvertent one, way back in 1978.   Driving from LA to Zion national park on our honeymoon,  Cheryl and I stopped on the Vegas strip for lunch.   Today I am headed directly there–no side trips, nothing inadvertent.  Normally, I would not write about a trip until after I take it.  I’m making an exception for this as, after all,  what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.    I’ll see you when I get back, assuming I don’t stay there.

Cosmic Quote #15

“If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”–Emma Goldman

If this election changed anything it would probably be ignored, which wouldn’t change anything.  Anyway, we are nearing the mid-point in the hotly contested vote to bestow a BLAHS in the category of outstanding lady blogger with an attitude.  It appears that Essa Alroc has pulled out to the early lead, thanks to her followers taking to heart my encouragement to stuff the ballot box.  Richard J. Daley would be proud.  Voting ends this Sunday afternoon EST, or sometime around then, assuming I remember to close the ballot box and name a winner.  You can vote here, or on the original post.  Or you can hack poll daddy and give new meaning to the term voter fraud.
