Longevity, Immortality & Transhumanism
Buying time & becoming superhuman
[TL;DR You can meaningfully extend your lifespan]
As of 2021 the global anti-aging cosmetics market is valued at US$60 billion. The desire for youth is evidently ubiquitous. While you can superficially seek a more youthful appearance, we can go beyond the skin using science. Longevity is a huge area of discussion among many online communities from Reddit to Youtube. Topics range from physical aspects such as muscle growth to more physiological aspects such as sleep optimization. Here I will go into detail about the resources you can use to educate yourself about these topics. You may not desire to live a particularly long life, but living a more youthful life is always great. For those who desire to live past your natural limits, the era may be here.

Many sci-fi movies imagine a world where our organs or limbs are artificial. With these technologies we could solve a variety of problems like organ failures and missing limbs, as well as further enhance natural human ability.
A Fundamental Problem
The innate immune system’s job is to detect and attack foreign materials found in the body. This problem leads to many complications for those with donor organs and implants; the same may happen for artificial organs and limbs. However, one potential strategy is to program the patient’s DNA into the artifical cells.
Nowadays our lives involve many digital devices. Using breakthrough technologies we could theoretically increase our bandwidth to computers beyond our fingers to keyboards. Facilitating more rapid access to information may enable superhuman cognitive powers. What implications this may have on society are unknown.
