A Pill That Will Help You Live to 100 ?

From a recent article by Donna Bowater in the Daily Express of the UK:

"A pill to help people live to 100 is set to "revolutionize" aging, experts said

The breakthrough has come after scientists identified three “super-genes”. People born with the genes are 20 times more likely to reach a century – and 80 per cent less likely to develop the senility disease Alzheimer’s."

...

"Life expectancy for men in the UK is 77, for women it is 82. At the same time nearly half a million Britons are affected by Alzheimer’s."

...

"Professor Judith Phillips, president of the British Society of Geron­tology, said the discovery would change how people look at growing old."

...

"Dr Barzilai, from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, said: “Because our centenarians have ­longevity genes, they are protected against many effects of the environment."

Obviously scientists are still interested in extending our lives; yet they are refusing to look into the "non-physical" aspects of achieving immortality. Perhaps if they could combine all the known knowledge into achieving immortality into a single "program" instead of a pill ...

Hi Ben,
I feel that science has a significant role to play in this unfoldment for humanity - although so do many other areas of knowledge. You may enjoy a quote from Robert Coon's book 'Question and Answers on physical immortality' re the science perspective.


'In order to create an Immortality pill, science will need to first understand the causes of death. Only then can you concoct a cure. Eventually all the genes within the DNA structure will be mapped out and understood. This should result in a healthier human race that lives longer, but it won't guarantee physical immortality. The principle causes of death are not genetic. If an immortality pill was available, to whom would it be given? Would it be freely available to millions of starving people? Or would it be restricted to global VIP's? Who would determine whether one life is more important to preserve than another? If science can help to build a healthy world civilisation, then it will be easier for individuals to blaze their own Immortal trails. Physical Immortality is not an elitist thing. Remember, social justice and liberty come first; only then can an Immortal culture expand and flourish.


While I welcome any contribution from science which improves the quality of life for all species on earth, I doubt whether a true Immortality pill could ever be possible. The science of Physical Immortality is very ancient, and it has clear principles and laws. So everlasting life is available now. No one needs to wait for some future discovery. All the immortal discoveries were made a long time ago. Anyone can begin to utilise this information now.


Our modern society likes to have a pill for everything: If you have a headache, take an aspirin, if you have the flu, get some antibiotics, if you have death in your physical system, take a pill and it will go away. We tend not to go to the doctor unless we are ill. Immortal doctors in the future will have a different purpose: They will remind us of the principles of vibrant, abundant life. Then we won't need to take any pills to rid ourselves of any unpleasant conditions. Death is unnatural, and disappears whenever Immortal laws are practiced.


The primary cause of death is loss of the Will to live. Strengthen and energise the True Will for Greater Life at all times. If you do this, then the Will is able to create changes in the physical body, in the heart, and in the mind. Among the many physical changes you may provoke is the phenomenon of genetic alchemy. If you are born with any weak or defective genes, inherited from your ancestors, it is possible to purify, strengthen, and structurally alter these genes until you completely regenerate the body and arrive at perfect health. We are born with an "Immortality pill" already within us. When we discover our true wills for everlasting life, then the capsule begins to dissolve, and death begins to disappear from the physical system. When the elixir of the Immortal Will completely permeates every atom and cell of the body, then the cure is permanent.'


Fascinating, isn't it?

many blessings Janni Lloyd

Ben... More on how to become Immortal... can physical immortality be gained in human form... how dominating kundalini shakti and practicing celibacy human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... became immortal... gained omniscience for all practical purposes!

Who becomes immortal? One who after intense meditation is able to live longer compared to a normal human being or one, who does not have to manifest a body again and again and rests in peace in kingdom of god (termed Baikuntha in Hinduism)... not kingdom of heaven! Negating karma forever is reaching stage of immortality in human form!

Thank you godrealized for the interesting comment.

None of the real life immortals that I have researched practice intense meditation or celibacy. In fact, they all believe that both is destructive to their human logevity.

We all have many beliefs as to what will extend our lifespans, which is why I went looking forthose who actually accomplished extending their own lives and finding out what they were actually doing.

I too was surprised at what they actually did and how simple it was to become a physical immortal.

Stay tuned for more info to come on what I learned from these super centenarians.

Blessings!

Ben Abba... you got me wrong... my fault! What I actually meant to say was... physical immortality is only gained in human form by reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... never before! Enlightenment can only be gained by traveling path of spirituality as ordained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!

How difficult reaching stage of enlightenment is can be gauged from fact that in last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over only two persons reached stage of enlightenment... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Reaching stage of enlightenment means our soul atman regaining its lost original pure prime pristine primordial form!

Liberating self from cycle of birth and death is what enlightenment is all about! Having gained enlightenment... the human being gains salvation (moksha) and liberated soul atman finally reaches kingdom of God (termed Baikuntha in Hinduism)... a place of no return!
