Project Gilgamesh and SENS

Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS), the brainchild of British biomedical gerontologist Aubrey de Grey, represents the most audacious initiative directed at the elimination of ageing. The SENS program rests… Read more »

The Policy of Minimal Interference

As previously discussed in Aging as Error Accumulation and Aging Elimination as Error Correction, it is instructive to view aging as error accumulation and aging elimination as of error correction…. Read more »

Beyond Body Intelligence: Molecular Repair Nanotechnology

As previously established in Body Intelligence, body intelligence is not compatible with aging elimination (in Homo sapiens, for spectacular results have been achieved in the so-called negligibly senescent organisms such… Read more »

Intelligence and Information Vectors

The theory of aging advanced under Project Gilgamesh and shared by the SENS program is that aging is stochastic – characterized by the accumulation of small random errors in biological systems… Read more »

Aging Elimination as Error Correction

If aging is construed as a problem of error accumulation, then aging elimination is necessarily a problem of error correction. The errors which constitute aging have been established under the… Read more »

What is Life Extension?

What is life extension? The term is employed in various ways which obliges a slender clarification. Firstly, it is often used as a shorthand for life extension science (more formally… Read more »

What is Aging?

Masoro, in the Handbook of Physiology, defines aging as deteriorative changes with time during post-maturational life that underlie an increasing vulnerability to challenges, thereby decreasing the ability of the organism… Read more »
