Ray Kurzweil thinks we are close to immortality. So, with this in mind he wrote a book called The Fantastic Voyage where he outlines the 3 steps to becoming immortal. It was written nearly 10 years ago now, but the principles are still sound, I am sure.

 

The first one is to take steps now to ensure you live long enough to benefit from the medical breakthroughs that are coming in the near future (say the next 10 years). They will hopefully provide significant longevity benefits that extend your life long enough to benefit from the next batch of revolutions and so on.

 

So, with this in mind, what specific steps can we do today to improve our chances of staying alive to benefit from future breakthroughs?

Don't do anything you know will definitely increase your chances of getting cancer!

 

 

But the trouble is if what we know of cancer may turn out to be misguided... so the very things you are doing to avoid cancer may turn out to be the catalyst for cancer to materialize!

 

So much variables to keep track. Tons of research is needed.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

There must be a whole batch of things we can do, that will statistically boost our odds of living longer. What about things like becoming vegetarian, juicing, raw food, exercise, low glycemic foods etc? And can supplementation? What about meditation? Improving social interaction?

By all means, do things you believe will help you live more, and avoid those you think will cut your longevity. But don't obsess over it! You can control the big picture, but you can't control every single risk factor. If you try to, you'll only stress out, weaken your immune system and make yourself terribly unhappy.
