People have searched for the fountain of youth everywhere from Bimini to St. Augustine. But for a steadfast group of scientists, the secret to a long life lies elsewhere: In the lowly lab worm. By suppressing the function of just a few key genes, these scientists were able to lengthen worms’ lifespans up to tenfold, while also controlling the onset of many of the physical problems that beset old age. As the global population ages, the potential impact of this discovery on society is vast - as is the potential for profit. With The Longevity Seekers, science writer Ted Anton takes listeners inside this tale that began with worms and branched out to snare innovative minds from California to Crete, investments from big biotech, and endorsements from TV personalities like Oprah and Dr. Oz. Some of the research was remarkable, such as the discovery of an enzyme in humans that stops cells from aging. And some, like an oft-cited study touting the compound resveratrol, found in red wine - proved highly controversial, igniting a science war over truth, credit, and potential profit. As the pace of discovery accelerated, so too did powerful personal rivalries and public fascination, driven by the hope that a longer, healthier life was right around the corner. Anton has spent years interviewing and working with the scientists at the frontier of longevity science, and this audiobook offers a behind-the-scenes look at the state-of-the-art research and the impact it might have on global public health, society, and even our friends and family. With spectacular science and an unforgettable cast of characters, The Longevity Seekers has all the elements of a great story and sheds light on discoveries that could fundamentally reshape human life. 1.

Webster´s Dictionary Definition of Metamorphosis: In Biology. a profound change in form from one stage to the next in the life history of an organism, as from the caterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adult butterfly. There also comes a time, in the evolution of a species where Metamorphosis of the entire genome of a species due to sudden and radical environmental change must take place in order for the species to survive in the new environment. There have only been a handful of such times in human evolution. This is such a time. In just a few short years, the Human Race will create the AI Cocoon. This is a Quantum Computer that is able to be the first Artificial Intelligence on this planet and it will be capable of storing the Human Consciousness. Many people such as Ray Kurzweil, research scientist at Google, are lining up to be the first to achieve immortality by actually leaving their fleshy brain behind and move their entire being into the realm of the AI Cocoon. I coined this term for what everyone else is calling the Artificially Intelligent Quantum Computer because the reality of the situation is that the human animal will go into this device as a caterpillar inhabits its cocoon. But, as we all know from childhood, the lowly worm emerges from the cocoon a few months later and takes the form of a beautiful Butterfly. When human beings enter our own cocoon, in the next few years, we will bring with us enough knowledge and technology to turn ourselves into anything we want to be, beautiful or horrible, for better or worse, each with earth shaking implications. The choice will be ours to make. We need to start asking the right questions and making the right decisions based on those answers before we we go down the wrong path that may be irreversible. In the billions of years of Evolution on this planet, there has never been such a sudden time of species Divergence as this. Even when humans made the divergence from the apes, t 1.
