How To Live Forever

Recommended Posts

If you exercise for 15 minutes a day you can extend your lifespan by three years:

I worked out, that if, say you take a total of half an hour all in to get ready for exercise, do the exercise, cool down etc....then after 50 years you spent approx. 1 year just doing the exercises....so you only gain 2 years.

Maybe not worth it.

LOL!

There was a bit on R4 last week saying that any health deficiencies we experience are pretty much determined in the womb. If the foetus doesn't have the right nutrition etc to develop at the appropriate stages, then the pattern is set. Exercise and diet as we grow up is important, but mostly as a way of managing the deficiencies rather than curing them. I think it was from some specialist doctor in Southampton who's considered a world expert.

Radio 4 also advised pregant women to drink artificially sweetened drinks (How about, I don't know, water? Tea?) and eat low fat. I don't put much faith in their nutritional advice now.

It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive - to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.

We are born and designed to move. That's about it. If you do not do this you will shrivel up and die.

You could always do what the character (forget his name) did in Catch 22. He disliked a particular activity and time dragged so much when he had to do it, so he did it whenever he could. Although he wouldn't live any longer it felt like his life was being extended.

Just googled it.

thing is, those extra years - you don't get them in your twenties or thirties - when you want them - you get them when you're old and fúcked and can't decide when you want to píss and shít anymore. Why strive for that?

But even so, even at that age surely you'll still want to stay alive, no? It's easy for youngens to say they'd rather be dead. But in reality, I suspect we'd all put off the final day of reckoning.

If you look after yourself when you are 60 or even 80, you will be in fairly good condition to carry on as before. Consider it this way, the DZO CCI is 79 years old, he started skydiving BEFORE the BPA even formed. He is fine.

depends on what delightful illnesses, diseases etc you are going to inherit from your parents though. I have some absolute doozies coming my way.
