    The Ultimate Purpose of Life

    This is the best thread ever, every time I forger what am I doing here (in this reality) . I come back and re-read it 😀
  2. I'm half way though it, and it is amazing. He explains why CR is not as good as Periodic fasting as it lacks the refeeding part. (where the magic happens). This encourages me to continue with my Fasting and Feasting approach Here is the interview:
  3. This is a great talk, Probably the best video content I've stumbled upon, probably since Rhonda interviewed Longo. Goes through problem definition, strategy (mostly) and some tactics.
  4. I've found it via his website: https://peterattiamd.com/start-here/ Which actually has some quality information. I haven't, does it add something that wasn't covered elsewhere? Enjoy!

    The Singularity May be Closer than It Appears

    They've found that a simulation of particular effect is exponential is the number of particles participating. Thus, concluding it will be impossible to simulate a large number of such particles. But, Quantum computers in theory can work with exponential time: https://cs.stackexchange.com/questions/12892/quantum-computers-parallel-computing-and-exponential-time Thus, if our simulators have access to those computers, they can simulate those kind of interaction in linear time.

    Basic income -does anybody see another sustainable solution?

    Gordo, Indeed basic income is different that food stamps. Compare those two scenarios: 1. Getting $1000 food stamps (or other social benefits). Now you start working for minimum wage and get paid $1500. Your total income is $1500 --> no incentive to work, as you loose benefits. 2. Getting $1000 basic income, Now you start working for minimum wage and get paid $1500. Your total income is $2500 --> there is an incentive to work as it adds to your basic income. A small but very important difference.

    Dysfunctional US Politics

    First I'll start by saying that this is indeed a topic with great importance. I would not join the debate here, but I think I share mostly Gordo's views on the topic. Meaning, both parties will have to re-think and reorder themselves as most of people understand the current way of doing things isn't going good. This will lead to better options in the future. Dean - You are indeed doing an important task with your connections at Facebook/Google, I wonder If you can elaborate on the response you get from your colleagues?

    Gordo, Amazing shot (and jump!)

    Introducing myself [newbie alert]

    Hi all, Dean suggested that I've introduce myself, and how can you refuse this guy Lets start with boring facts, I'm 30 and I live in Israel. (Am I the first Israeli representative here?) This implies that my English is not my first language, but I'm working on it continuously. I'm practicing a mild CR, mostly via IF(24 hours fast once a week) and TRF for the paft few years. I've done my share of experimenting with different diets (Paleo, Keto, Vegan), and currently I'm following a Mediterranean diet. Which easy to follow in Israel, And suits my taste buds My background is in Physics and Engineering, and currently I'm the CTO of a mobile health startup company named Healthymize: Currently we are doing clinical trials in order to collect sufficient labeled data. If you have more specific questions, I'll gladly answer them. In general I'm interested in longevity and quality of life, Thus I also do weightlifting to preserve my lean mass and hopefully would be able to fight off sarcopenia. Also I'm interested in Stoicism, as it gives practical tools for daily use. Funny anecdote, I had a discussion on the Facebook group of Stoicism with Massimo about longevity. He was against us (the human race) trying to achieve it, and I was in favor. His ending words (I've tried my best): Nice to e-meet everyone here!

    Introducing myself [newbie alert]

    I've visited the colorado last month for a family re-union. Done some nice CE, via swimming in the sky pond.
  13. Indeed it gets hot in this area. As someone who also working in this realm, those are exciting times

    Fasting

    Observer, Don't forget that he is looking through the lens of "Circadian rhythm". So Coffee or tea indeed affects it. But if you switch the lens to fasting, I believe that zero-calorie beverages are OK.

    Caloric or proteic restriction?

    Josh made a series of posts on this topic recently: http://joshmitteldorf.scienceblog.com/2016/09/05/nutritional-geometry/

    Amazing work Dean, it is great that you are keeping us posted with the latest research on this topic. Funny fact, I've looked at your paper and who cited it, and surprisingly enough it was a work on HRV

    Valter Longo interviewed by Rhonda

    Thanks for the reference, I already know this work (As most people here I guess). My question was regarding if it is better (health wise) to do a 5 day full fast compared to 5 day FMD? Let's assume I don't have an adherence problem And if Longo actually compered those two in a clinical trial.

    Valter Longo interviewed by Rhonda

    Got it BTW, I wonder if Longo compared the FMD vs Full fast in one of his publications.

    mccoy, Where did you find Longo's diet recommendations? As I understand his book is in Italian.

    Dean, You made me laugh, and reminded me the "Keanu reeves immortal" meme My avatar is actually my "lost dad" Luis CK. which everyone claim that we look alike.

    Regarding Elon Musk and Cars, here is an interview with him back from 1999: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSHUha9ABNY

    Valter Longo interviewed by Rhonda

    Sthira, yes you are correct. The refeeding is when the magic happens. Actually I've discovered that it is much easier for me to CR utilizing fasts (24 hours, few times aweek), and this also allowed me to feast on other occasions (Friday dinner, which is a Jewish tradition).
  23. I've ordered it now, the shipping to Israel was $30 It will arrive mid October. Gordo - Do you have a nice guide for the HRV? how one converts the readings to the biological age?
  24. I would like to participate as well. I've tried to order it, but as I live in a kibbutz in Israel eBay would not approve my address. I'll try to order tomorrow to a friends house, who lives in a big city.
