Nanotechnology, Quantum Physics, Etc.

Live forever, disease-free. We have the technology, we've been given just one chance. Will you take that chance?

In the project linked here, you can get started with one-qubit quantum circuit operations using QASM. Yeah, go ahead. Then run the code. Due to the probabilistic nature of quantum mechanics, make sure to play with different numbers of iterations. 10 or more work well, but try also 1 and 100. Think of this as your one-qubit sandbox.Play With (just) One Qubit

Quantum computing is the biggest revolution in computing since… computing. Our world is made of quantum information, but we perceive the world in classical information. That is, there is a whole lot going on at small scales that are not accessible with our normal senses. As humans we evolved to process classical information, not quantum information: our brains are wired to think about Sabertooth cats, not Schrodinger’s cats. We can encode our classical information easily enough with zeros and ones, but what about accessing the extra information available that makes up our universe? Can we use the quantum nature of reality to process information? Of course, otherwise we would have to end this post here and that would be unsatisfying to us all. Let’s explore the power of quantum computing then get you started writing some of your own quantum code.Understanding quantum computing through drunken walks

The future is here! Check out CRISPR.The Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) Type II system is a bacterial immune system that has been modified for genome engineering. Prior to CRISPR/Cas9, genome engineering approaches, like zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) or transcription-activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), relied upon the use of customizable DNA-binding protein nucleases that required scientists to design and generate a new nuclease-pair for every genomic target. Largely due to its simplicity and adaptability, CRISPR has rapidly become one of the most popular approaches for genome engineering.

“I wanted to make a dent in the suffering and death caused by aging. It seemed like the SENS people were the smartest, most resourceful and best organized among those ambitious enough. Of course, there are also DIYers with no ambitions to save the world, who are content to ‘make yogurt glow‘ in the basement for their own personal satisfaction.”Finally! The age is here where open source nanotech life extension research can be done at home!!My new lifetime hobby!

This is funny, Billie Jean's long-standing claim. I'll say that's been going on for a while!Billie Jean Jackson [CNN], another woman claiming to be the mother of Jackson's children, also was in court, but her long-standing claim was not heard.

I've never had such conflicting diametrically-opposed thoughts then that I fully agree with the project, and think of how many great things this project has the potential to produce. Possibly a cure for cancer. Perhaps a flawless man-machine interface (Recursion alert) A flawless man-machine interface and the potentials for both extreme good and extreme evil. But in that case, for a certain percentage of these people, there may be generations of my descendants cursing my act. With a perfect man-machine interface, and a public copy of my DNA, bad bio-hacks could be done by nefarious individuals to me and my descendants. (But then, the "noise" induced into the DNA by each generation of reproduction that "mixes down" the individuality of the "original copy" (aka, me) would make it nearly impossible to gain any "hacking" advantage.) But on the other side, the knowledge we'd gain by "datamining" 0.1 Megapeople would be tremendous - it could cure cancer/aging/disease and the idea of "immortal till killed" would have to be considered. I must consider this recursively...

But surveillance systems - such as the one involving the p53 protein, called the "guardian of the genome" (New Scientist, 18 December 2004, p 38) - detect almost all such errors and direct the affected cells to commit suicide.

03/07/2004: Overheard by the interplanetary radio data exchange:A small field containing ancient human-like skeletons was unearthed today in the northern hemesphere of Mars. Scientists speculate what many suspected to be true among the scientific community: The human race originally evolved on Mars. All humans living on the third planet, Earth (Terra), are descendants of emergency survival missions launched in desperation from the fourth planet, Mars, after an environmental disaster caused by an accident handling genetically engineered microbes designed for use in metropolitan waste handling that had mutated due to the thinning of the atmospheric shielding layer.More news soon!

A recent spate of dead microbiologists who worked for research firms with links to U.S. weapons development is raising some eyebrows.Exclusive to American Free PressBy Christopher BollynA string of microbiologists appears to have died under strange circumstances since the anthrax scare surfaced last fall. From Nov. 12 through Feb. 11, seven world-class microbiologists in different parts of the world were reported to have died of 'unnatural' causes, while the cause of the seventh's death is questionable, according to Michael Davidson of From The Wilderness, an Internet news journal.The seven microbiologists that Davidson reports to have died under strange circumstances are: Benito Que, Don C. Wiley, Vladimir Pasechnik, Robert Schwartz, Set Van, dean of the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical Faculty.Benito Que was a cell biologist at the University of Miami Medical School, involved in oncology research in the hematology department, which relies heavily on DNA sequencing studies.Que worked for medical research facilities that received grants from Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), which is headquartered in Chevy Chase, Md. Que was found comatose in the street near the laboratory where he worked on Nov. 12 and died on Dec. 6.HHMI funds a tremendous number of research programs at schools, hospitals and research facilities, and allegedly conducts 'black ops' biomedical research for intelligence organizations, including the CIA, according to Davidson.Three of the five American scientists who have died, Wiley, Schwartz, and Que, worked for medical research facilities that received grants from HHMI.Don C. Wiley worked with HHMI at Harvard University and was one of ...
