In case it isnt obvious, the one on the right is not very good.

This is DNA from lampreys in Southern Indiana.

I may not be making any dramatic contributions to anti-aging science yet, but I am having fun and doing as much science as I can.

Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage against the dying of the light.

By Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Envisioning Technology

 

The foundation of my education & career will be built upon the idea of the exponential growth of technology. Made famouse by Moore’s Law.

(From Wikipedia) Moore’s law is the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years. The law is named after co-founder Gordon E. Moore co-founder of Intel Corporation, who described the trend in his 1965 paper.[1][2][3] His prediction has proven to be accurate, in part because the law is now used in the semiconductor industry to guide long-term planning and to set targets for research and development.[4] The capabilities of many digital electronic devices are strongly linked to Moore’s law: processing speedmemory capacity, sensors and even the number and size of pixels in digital cameras.[5] All of these are improving at roughlyexponential rates as well. This exponential improvement has dramatically enhanced the impact of digital electronics in nearly every segment of the world economy.[6] Moore’s law describes a driving force of technological and social change in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.[7][8]

It is this idea that gives me hope that many of the miracle cures and therapies I dream of, could actually exist in my own lifetime. Could actually be applied to lengthening the time I will have with my parents and other loved ones. This image represents possible emerging technologies for 2012 and beyond. Many of these are already in developmental stages.

Although the site has been up and functioning for a few weeks now. It is set to go live on April 1st. I will then be promoting the site and adding content much more frequently. Here is a list of Information I plan to organize and present in the near future. These are screen grabs from Dr Andrews talk at the Pharmacy Development Services Business Growth Conference.

It would be quite foolish if I said the goal was to live forever. Life is fragile and there is countless natural things that can end it no matter how much progress is made in biology alone. So when I stumbled upon this picture today. I thought it would be fitting to post it here with this blurb.
