The first part of this series is called Transhuman1: Immortality and can be found here

http://www.debate.org...

It discusses the bridges we need to pass over to achieve an indefinite lifespan. The Bridge theory is from the writings of Ray Kurzweil particularly from his book titled Transcend.

This section s going to cover bride 1 or the practical approach we can take now to achieve immortality.

Calorie Restriction

Calorie restriction is the only scientifically proven way to extend human life span and is a must if you are taking to this pursuit of immortality seriously.

http://www.annualreviews.org...

A lot of CR (calorie restriction) adherents consume as few as 1,000 calories a day and it's a lifestyle that in my opinion takes an extreme amount of willpower. I have a few other alternatives, which receive slightly inferior results but with far less willpower needed. For more information on tradition CR type diets go to the following link. http://www.crsociety.org...

Intermittent Fasting

I think IF (intermittent fasting) is the best way to go. It takes a lot less willpower and gives you the freedom to pig out occasionally. There are 2 popular methods of IF that I've personally had success with.

It should be noted that a few people put on weight the first month of IF but it usually goes down after that and it's only the minority of people who practice IF that get the initial weight gain.

Every Other Day Fasting

This isn't as bad as it sounds. You can still eat every single day. Let's say you fast from Noon until Noon. On day 1 you can eat breakfast and an 11:00 lunch and when your fast ends on day 2 you can eat a 12:00 lunch and dinner.

So with every other day fasting, you can still eat every single day. It's eazy peazy. The toughest part is the social conventions that makes it seem as if you're doing something wrong if you refuse food.

Eat Stop Eat

This method I got from an overhyped book that actually works great, from Brad Pilon of eat stop eat. http://www.eatstopeat.com...

You fast for a couple of days a week and eat whatever you want the rest of the days. The 2 days are probably better off separated by a gap of a few days.

Leangains

This method of fasting is one that can be done by anyone but is only really here for the fitness buffs. It's basically a 16 hour fast, similar to the warriar diet but with 4 extra hours of eating and with workouts timed around your eating schedule for maximum benefit.

http://www.leangains.com...

As you can see IF offers you plenty of options and just like an extreme change in diet you'll want to consult with a doctor before trying this stuff out. This type of eating isn't for everybody and can be extremely harmful to some people such as diabetics.

Food Pyramid

IF comes before eating right because it's benefits have the biggest impact on life extension, but here is a food pyramid as recommended in Ray Kurzweils book Transcend co authored by Terry Grossman. A link to the life extension food pyramid can give you the information you need for proper nutrition. http://www.fantastic-voyage.net...

It's typical advise for the most part. Eat a well balanced food with a low GL rating and that is nutrient dense. Drink plenty of water and get some light aerobic exercise everyday.

Aggressive Supplementation

I could go on all day about supplementation but I'll refrain. If there is enough demand I'll do an entire post dedicated to supplements but for right now let me just show you a transcript of a short speech by Kurzweil that covers the essentials.

"Ray Kurzweil: I take 150 pills, which is maybe 70 or 80 different things; there's a different story with each one. Although people find that a very aggressive program, it's actually very conservative, because everything I do actually has a lot of evidence. Aging's not one thing; it's many different things.

1) Coenzyme Q10 is very important, particularly at my age, as an antioxidant.

2) Phosphatidylcholine addresses all by itself a major aging process because that substance depletes from your cell membrane and that's why the skin in an elderly person loses suppleness and your organs don't work very well.

3) I'd throw in Vitamin D. It's very important"maybe the most important vitamin to take. There's tremendous amount of research and a consensus that that really does help prevent cancer and other diseases."
http://bigthink.com...

Again be sure to consult a doctor before doing any sort of aggressive supplementation regime.

Miscellaneous Bridge 1 Advice

Some stuff to keep in mind is that I've barely covered or haven't yet covered at all. You need to see a doctor regularly. You really have to be proactive about your health. Get breast exams or prostate exams when you're supposed to. Visit the Dentist regularly. Do some light aerobic exercise on a daily basis. Marathon running and lifting heavy weights may make you look good now but can actually be counter productive to extending your lifespan.

I might do entire posts on these things in the future but I doubt it. This is the health section which is generally ignored by most of DDO.

Emergency Back-up Plan

The emergency back up plan would be to have your body frozen for $200,000 or just your head for $80,000, at the Alcor facility in Arizona. http://alcor.org...

This is actually a lot more affordable than what people think. A small life insurance policy can cover the costs of cryopreservation. It's your best bet at being brought back to life after dying but it's unfortunately still pretty unlikely for the reasons I touched on in part 1 of this series.

Conclusion

I hope somebody gained something from this. Questions, criticisms and advice is much appreciated. If there is a topic you'd like me to dive a little deeper into let me know and I'll do my best.

There will be more parts to this series but they'll cover a wide range of topics. I'm sure to have something for everybody. Unfortunately this isn't a topic I ever get to debate about. Hopefully this series will open up some doors in that regard.

Calorie restriction inevitably results in nutrient restriction which causes, potentially, health risks such as underdevelopment experienced with the brain and bones, especially the micronutrient content. Fasting also pertains to the above mentioned.

Avoiding foods that offer little to no valuable substance, such as soda, burgers, or even rice a roni, and selecting ideal foods such as, yams, walnuts, and quinoa is a far more successful avenue to take in regards to obtaining micronutrient substance and simultaneously attempting to reduce body fat and improve the bodies fitness.

Not disputing that as I have seen that that elsewhere as well. Yet the question to ask is, "do you want to add years to your life, or add life to your years?" Restricting caloric consumption, depending on the person, can hinder performance.

The ideal in Transhumanism is to survive until bridge 2. The goal is to become immortal.

So yes while it may reduce performance and diminish the quality of your life, it may be worth it. If it carries you over to bridge 2 and then you just need to survive after that until science helps you achieve immortality.

The goal is bridge 2. Looking good and feeling good are just distractions.

The idea that people who eat less live longer might explain the gap in life expectancy between men and women. I'd be interested in your reproducing the study that proves this.

Men in general are more physically active (i.e. demand for males in the physical labor market) and thus require more sustenance to sustain their energy consumption. Thus men probably eat more, potentially explaining why women have statistically longer life spans than men.
Senpai has noticed you.

The life span disparity is explained via many factors, but not limited to an avoidance or surplus of calories. Risky behavior, occupancy hazards, and unique health factors are reasons as to why men face a fewer life expectancy. Supplementing the fewer calorie argument requires that the calories you avoid are of little to no value to begin with.
