You are definitely a longevity advocate. We will add you to a private chat, where I will post all of the best new info on RLE available. Also, you will meet like-minded people and I believe we will have one of the brightest communities here.

About Alex Kadet

Some time ago I decided to dedicate 100% of my time to bringing radical life extension (RLE) here as soon as possible.

After that, I have found out that a bottleneck in case of RLE is not a physical impossibility of RLE. It is people's deadly worldview praising death. (FYI: US market expenditures on basic aging research is around $200 million against $9 billion spendings on Halloween)

According to the Pulitzer Prize–winning book The Denial of Death, cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker explored the hypothesis that civilization is based not on the suppression of sexuality, as Sigmund Freud believed, but on the suppression of the inherent human fear of death.

Ernest Becker’s theory has been further developed and experimentally confirmed in the framework of terror management theory (TMT). Combining that and the lack of funding in RLE (or longevity, whatever you want to call it), I believe that the general lack of interest in radical life extension comes from a lack of fear of death, as humans tend not to be consciously afraid of death.

Thus, in case of longevity, the lives of the minority of people who already came up with the idea that they are certainly want to live more are in the hands of those who do not. So I am using science to change that.

My research in the field of social experimental psychology (where all hypnotizes should be falsifiable and therefore must be experimentally tested) has a clear and practical goal: to identify the best way to deliver the message about possibility and plausibility of RLE to the rational decision-makers and to bring to the RLE as much money, resources and talented people as possible to eliminate diseases, aging and suffering on Earth.

There is no doubt that aging and even death itself will be conquered one day. The only question is whether it is going to happen during your lifetime or not. Finally, there is a chance for any one of us to be a part of something that really matters. I invite you to join me on this way, where any dollar matters and any human life is invaluable. 

My activities at the moment are:

1. I write pop-science articles about RLE, this is the first one:

2. I am starting the research with my collaborator who had his Ph.D. in Social Psychology under supervision of Jeff Greenberg, one of the creators of TMT, to find out if my hypothesis about fear of death and public RLE desirability is correct.

3. Together with my team at Open Longevity, we are creating the diagnostics of aging and the Longevity School at Montenegro.
Goals
$9 of $1,000 per month
I won't tell you that the research will be started only If I secure such and such funds from here. Sooner or later, I will find a way to do it, because this is life and death question for me. I invite you to be a part of it for all of us
