Kind of a funny presentation with these covers. I wasn’t necessarily planning on posting them to the channel but that’s how it goes sometimes! The sun was out and the mood was right. The supplement I’m goofily sipping on is Ginseng.
The next instruction of the Ageless Algorithm is to eat and supplement intentionally. Supplements should be regarded as augmentations and not dependencies.
There is a plant for every ailment and attribute. I have a growing collection of botanical extracts on my shelf. For maximum benefit, shelve any illogical skepticism about the fruits of spaceship Earth.
The overall shift to noninvasive medicine and healthcare that gets back to nature will support longevity and immortality very directly through vital nutrients.
Consider the immortal Hippocrates quotation “let thy food be thy medicine” with the photo of the grapes above. Grape skin contains Reservatrol, a substance linked to numerous benefits including brain health. Although it is found concentrated in supplement form, the benefit and easy (tasty) access of whole foods in general is clear.
Another compound identified in connection with longevity is NAD+ or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, associated with adult stem cell production. That too comes in supplement form, yet it is also available in foods like fish and mushrooms.
[Aside] And by the way: “Research into adult stem cells has been fueled by their abilities to divide or self-renew indefinitely and generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate — potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells.” — Science Daily. This is kind of funny to extract what we already have inside of us and put it back in, which implies that perhaps what we also need is a new level of awareness.
In my previous article “Examining Biological Immortality in Nature” I identified the disaccharide sweetener Trehalose as possibly beneficial, given its production by some plants and animals as a protective crystallization against the elements or in a period of dormancy.
Deliberate choice of intake, rich in vitamins and minerals, enhances bodily processes and therefore quality of life.
In support of the adage “you are what you eat,” having as many live foods with active enzymes as possible is the way to go. You may already have many beneficial ingredients on hand, like turmeric (curcumin) or apples and onions (quercetin). This is naming a few of millions. Knowing and learning the usefulness and value of plants makes them even more effective. Such is the power of intention plus understanding!
Way of life, the Tao, flow — this next instruction of the Ageless Algorithm encompasses daily habits and manner. As mentioned in the previous instruction, having an open-ended life span de-stresses one’s manner and culture significantly.
To live like an immortal would mean free enjoyment of all life has to offer without the pressure of an ultimate deadline. It would mean open-ended achievement, the rethinking and revamping of healthcare, the stewardship of environment. All in all I think, a great idea. I happen to believe we live in a benevolent universe, because everywhere we look there is proof of that. Why death, then? Why indeed. It’s been done. So perhaps the time is nigh for something new.
Time is a tool and system of measurement for scheduling! It does not have to determine life span, though. In this way we can begin to experience multi-dimensionality, like the quantum world. One on level, the measure of time applies; on another level, other qualities are timeless. You may have experienced a taste of timelessness during the pandemic. I sure did, during which the names of the days and sun-ups and sundowns blurred together, a whole year that felt like a time warp!
The immortal being would get plenty of sleep for recharging, without any regard for missing out on something or “FOMO.” There are plenty of plants and animals that do this and live a very long time. We can continue to learn from them without dissecting them, and make no mistake — they too continue to learn and evolve. Consider the city birds that have trained us not to mess with them, and to feed them instead!
The immortal being would not engage in cruel, murderous or torturous behaviors. Having gained infinite sight, like the sloth in the photo, there would be little point and much less existential angst. Above all, engaging in death or destructive activities leads to more death, focusing on death leads to death. You can guess the flipside of the coin: Focusing on enjoying life and living, experiences and exploration, leads to more life.
Rest periods would be expected. The pace of work, however one sees fit for one’s occupation. To each their own. Live and let live, and on and on. After all, here we go expanding to other planets thanks to aerospace giants. The only sense of urgency here is excitement and that we’ll need more room.
To summarize this instruction, way of life converts from survival, or fight or flight, to **arrival. There many ways of saying this in different idioms. If you go ahead and live that way you may find that your health & your quality of life vastly improve.
“…discover first hand the eternity of Life, Light, and Truth, as well as the illusion of Death, Darkness, and Sin… Though the modern world may know a million secrets, the ancient world knew one–and that one was greater than the million; for the million secrets breed death, disaster, sorrow, selfishness, lust, and avarice, but the one secret confers life, light, and truth. The time will come when the secret wisdom shall again be the dominating religious and philosophical urge of the world… The Dying God shall rise again!” — Manly Hall
“Get busy living or get busy dying.” — The Shawshank Redemption
An algorithm is a set of instructions implemented for problem solving or computation. Let’s examine some logical instructions for immortality.
Let’s start with the deepest instruction. Many philosophers and other figures of note have agreed, that the power of belief is potent. Affirmations and meditation then affirm the belief, as well as way of life. Focus on life and joy is based in faith; focus on death is fear-based and generates anxiety and pressure. Could death now be the greatest modern farce and irony. That we have the gift of life and then focus on supposedly inevitable death and “heaven.” It looks to me like we live in the heavens! Just look at the sky, or photos from the Hubble telescope. Yes though, there are layers we can’t see. What I’m saying is — I believe we have options.
Humanity seems to be at a point both technologically and spiritually to opt out of death, as determined by the individual, to be able to upgrade and transform within the same life cycle (although many came before to get to this point). And the individual must of course love life and cosmos in order to want to continue. Rest? Bodiless travel? That’s what we have sleep for. For youthfulness and quality of life the individual must be in a regeneration mindset instead of a degenerative one. This implies faith in the body / the self’s ability to heal and learn/evolve. Biological immortality is a great quantum leap and inevitably creates new culture.

For water content, vitamins & minerals, fruit is great recovery food in between workouts or after time out in the sun.
To avoid mindless or binge-eating keep vitamin and mineral (whole food) content high, drink plenty of water, stay active, minimize or eliminate alcohol.
Binge or mindless eating is often caused by vitamin or mineral deficiency, and if binging on food without much relative nutritional value, you’re more likely to just keep eating as the body searches for whatever need. Like, “Hey! Where’s the magnesium?” (Find it in the dark greens for one, or in cacao!)
At times it could just be a matter of drinking more water — a large percentage of us is water & it helps us run smoothly. Adding a slice of citrus makes drinking water even more healthful and interesting, or adding a splash of grapefruit juice. The bitterness of grapefruit has been known to curb mindless eating.

This evening at Boston College Club, Chef Stefan Jarausch (formerly of Top Of The Hub) and Bartender Mauricio provided my Vegan dish and Mocktail du jour. The eggplant was a fresh, spicy combination of flavors and *very filling. The mocktail was uniquely delicious, featuring grapefruit, grenadine & almond syrup.
