    Everyone contains a protein known as Progerin,that destroys cells and therefore brings about the aging process. I'n individuals with Progeria they have much more then a normal person,and therefore age 10x faster. Scientists have discovered that by supressing the immune system of those individuals they can stop them from aging so fast.

    You do realize that aging is what keeps you alive so many years right?
    Constant destruction and formation of cells is what grants you long term living, cause besides new cells are created with defects (small mutations) and this defects will accumulate over the years, till the point where you became a decrepit old man/woman and die, that process is what repairs and cleans your organism, it takes about 11 years so that every cell of your body be renewed and stopping aging could actually kill you prematurely instead of the other way around.
    Basically aging is good, the key and the advantage would be to find a way to age "better"!

    The cure presented here is not for aging (as aging is not a disease), but for Progeria Syndrome...

    But the research into Progeria Syndrome could end up for a cure for aging,where a person's cells replenish themselves without being mutated.

    With CPU's going 3D which can increase performance by 37% in the early ones and also uses 50% less electricity, the amount of time it takes to fold proteins will go down greatly. Which means alot of advances in medicine coming over the next 10 years,which we probably would not have expected.

    More pills.

    The only cure for aging is death. Who wants to live forever?

    No one thinks about unintended consequences with things like this. Think of all those that will starve because of over population. Don't fuck with mother nature, she will smack you with a shoe.

    Live forever?
    Big Pharma will have none of that!
    Where's the $ for them then?
    These kinds of stories are nice. But I suspect only progaganda to make use think
    THEY actually give 2 Sh&ts for us.(useless eaters according to those in power)
    Soon, freedom to buy vitamins will be gone in US. So, they want us sick.
    Easier to control and siphon $ off.
    It really isn't $ they want IMHO, but the Power.
    Thanks for the link

    But with people not aging,There will be much more inventors and they will be able to develop more,so technology will increase at a much more rapid pace. And we could eventually settle the Moon and Mars.

    As for starvation the answer is simple,stop paying people to not farm,and pay them for food that can be shipped to parts of the world where people are starving. That in combination with more efficient farming methods and modifying foods to create more energy content.

    Why would you want to live forever? Anything material would no longer matter. Why work for the nice car and house when you can do that in 200,000 million years? Infact, why even bother worrying about material things, go steal it, go prison for 50 years. It's nothing.

    I'm a firm believer that the spirit lives on. I am NOT religious. But I'm a firm believer in the reality of DMT (the drug).

    Living forever would contrast with Antoine Lavoisier's law: "nothing is lost everything is transforming". Absolutely everything in the universe is perpetually changing and nothing lasts forever: mountains, oceans, planets, stars etc.
    It's an old dream of mankind to achieve immortal life in one way or another; religion - after life and reincarnation, myths with immortal gods, popular culture: vampires. For the moment, it seems that building pyramids is the most successful way to stay alive...at least, in the memory of the people.

    But he lived in a time in which supercomputers,and protein folding did not exist. Just like Albert Einstein's law that nothing can move faster then the speed of light. There was no technology back then that could even prove whether he was right or wrong.

    Well why do you think I'm here to bank ? So I have the cash when this technology/medicine becomes available. I can guarantee you that it will be very expensive to extend you life to 'forever' and only the richest of the planet will be able to afford it.
    And while i'm at it, yes I want a nice house and a nice car :)

    I don't believe in spirit or religion. I see the brain as the biochemical process it is. Once you die, there is nothing; This scares me a lot. The only comfort that I have is the reality that you will never know you are dead since you are not around anymore to realise it. If dead comes I hope it will be in my sleep so i never realise it (so not a horrible accident or something where you realise in a split second: shit i'm gonna die)

    Furthermore I want to do so much and experience so much that I think life is to short for all this; I don't have enough time and i'm wasting a lot of it here at BHW to bank. So yes, I would love to live longer or even forever, for then when I have banked and don't have to worry about money anymore I can do other things and experience all kind of things.

    And while you can live forever, you would probably not be immortal. So heavy criminal offences could still be punished by a death sentence ;)

    Also; When I think about death, and that I will die in like 50 or 60 years, I get depressed and don't see why I should bother doing anything. Since its all useless; Everything you do has only consequences in the short term. In 200 years nobody will know who you are or what you did. Unless you do stuff that benefits the whole of mankind. But I just don't want to think about death, i would just stay in bed the whole day.

    And maybe I read to much science fiction, but i would like to see how mankind looks like in 1000 years from now.
    Look at how people lived 1000 years ago and how we live now. Wouldn't you be interested in what the world looks like in 3000AD ?
