Extropians are among the most intelligent people I know and I want to see us all make the most of our knowledge and abilities to better ourselves by improving communications and collaborating on projects which bring us closer to our shared goals. I am most interested in doing PRACTICAL research and development work towards immortaliism and transhumanism through tissue engineering and cybernetics.
Theoretical topics are exciting, but I really enjoy information that can be put to good use, that's why I focused my attention on cutting edge diet and exercise regimens for this past year, ALL year. My specialties are general, practical, and low cost alternative therapies for intelligence augmentation, and life-extension, such as: Calorie Restriction , the Anabolic Burst Cycle of Diet and Exercise system by Torbjorn Akerfeldt at , the Evolutionary Fitness system by Art DeVany at , Eat Smart, Think Smart by Robert Haas, and the Eat Right 4 Your (Blood) Type system by Peter J. D'Adamo at That's why I haven't been participating on the list much. I learned that most people should fire their blood-sucking doctors, not that I have anything against vampires; vamps are cool, but most doctors suck, except when it comes to critical care. I know the power of a focused mind.
That's why I want to be part of a focused group. So what do you say?
Let's get down and dirty.
