Can We Control Aging?
I found the video below fascinating. While claims of reversing aging or achieving immortality may still seem far fetched, Dr. Sinclair’s theories suggest that we can take a large degree of control over the aging process if we understand what causes it. He believes that very far back in evolutionary history, bacteria developed two modes of existence. In good times with comfortable temperatures and abundant food – bacteria responded to the consistently easy life by steering their metabolic resources towards division – reproduction. In stressful times of minimal food and poor environmental conditions that made survival questionable, the bacterial genetics told the cellular metabolism to go into repair mode, turning off the energy depleting reproduction and devoting everything to maintaining quality genetic repairs.
For most things in life, a 99.9% success rate is great. If we correctly answer 99.9% of a thousand question test we probably got the highest score. If 99.9% of our investments were profitable we would be doing way better than Warren Buffet – we would be scrutinized as a potential time traveler from the future! But if damage to our cells is only correctly repaired 99.9% of the time, then we experience significant epigenetic damage over the decades. This affects the DNA codes – the biological software – that tells our individual cells what to do.
Imagine thousands of identical desktop computers produced with more possibilities than any of us will make full use of. The software we run on them makes them do different work. Likewise our cells, which all have the same DNA, but are activated for very specialized functions, are assigned different tasks. At a very early stage, cells differentiate into bone, muscle, skin, brain, and other specialized forms as very long strands of DNA are folded and marked with activation proteins that tell each cell which functions to perform. Much like a magnet can erase crucial information stored digitally, toxic chemicals and radiation can break protein strands in our DNA. Most of the time they are repaired correctly. Sometimes mistakes are made and the DNA no longer functions. Over the course of a lifetime, this accumulation of non-functional cells grows until the entire organism suffers an increasingly obvious loss of potential.
Dr. Sinclair suggests a two-fold method of vastly reducing this problem. The first step is avoiding unnecessary exposure to radiation and chemical poisons. Eat healthy, and avoid long exposure to extreme sunlight. Eliminate DNA damage by drugs, artificial foods with lots of chemical preservatives, be aware of plastics that can release hormone-like molecules into our foods and beverages, avoid constant air (or space) travel in poorly shielded vehicles and work with X-rays or other sources of radiation – and avoid tanning beds and long summer days in the sun.
The second step in reducing aging is tricking our bodies (which have inherited many traits from the earliest bacteria) into thinking we are barely surviving in an extreme environment. Remember, bacteria in great conditions put energy towards reproduction. But when food is scarce and temperatures are extreme they focus on cellular maintenance. If we eat less food, exercise rigorously and often (as if there are frequent threats to our survival, such as predators) and expose our selves to extremes of hot and cold – then our genetic programming responds with self-protection and higher quality epigenetic repairs.
In addition, other doctors typically suggest that modern people don’t get enough sleep. With electricity comes all forms of entertainment beyond sunset, and we often stay up far too late reading, watching TV, and surfing the internet. But our body does most of its repair work while we sleep. There’s a big difference between averaging 7-9 hours sleep per night, and getting by on 6 – or 5 – or less hours. Our bodies let us know it isn’t enough, but our brains want entertainment, so….
We tend to do the exact opposite. Most people are sleep deprived. Most people eat far more than necessary, far more than the recommended caloric intake. Most people live in a climate controlled house that makes sure the temperature is comfortable and stable. Most people enjoy a long day at the beach, recreational chemical and pharmaceutical products, and factory-made foods with amazingly long shelf lives that should make us question what chemicals are in them…. because if those preservatives are harmful to bacteria and mold and fungus then the only reason such things don’t kill us instantly is because the concentration is diluted in our much larger bodies. And as for drinking lots of water to help dilute and flush these toxins out…. most of us are chronically dehydrated as well.
Who among us is ready to live a longer, healthier life – if it means less food, more exercise, less chemicals and radiation, more exposure to extreme hot and cold, and less comfort? I’ll admit, eating too much pepperoni pizza in a room temperature environment sounds much more enjoyable than joining the polar bear club for a swim in ice water followed by a tiny portion of spinach for dinner. Will this reverse aging and make us young again. No, it won’t – though Dr. Sinclair does believe there are methods to reverse the cellular damage we think of as aging, and there is at least a road map into future research and experiments that have a real chance of achieving this in the future. But the question for right now is: could profoundly different habits make the difference between feeling old and decrepit at age 60, versus being alert and energetic until age 90? Obviously the answer is a resounding yes. The question is, can we extend the good, healthy, functional years even further – to 100, 120, or 150? Dr. Sinclair says we can.

Before the flood men lived for hundreds of years. After the flood, God gave man 3 score and 10 years (70 years) of life and 4 score (80 years) for reason of strength. What changed this life span of man? Was it a shift of the poles that changed the radiation exposure on earth? Whatever God did to change the life span, He will reverse it during His 1000 year Millennium Kingdom.
I heard drinking young, virginal blood can keep you young. There was such a movie, ‘Vidocq’, which was built around this theme. All these vampire myths must have some source 😉
Plus all that child sacrifice in Carthagine… what did they do with flesh and blood? Also, you must ask, why only child sacrifice, and not adult sacrifice too…?
Ha! Has anyone recently read Daniel 9:26 ? Wasn’t the Temple Mount recently stormed by ‘the people of the prince’ (I bet it is ‘the prince of Tyre’)…?!
It looks like Damascus Gate is to be the gate of Messiah 😉
The Turks sealed up the Eastern Gate in case Jesus would return and seek to enter as foretold.
Yes, the Eastern Gate is sealed. Also known as the Golden Gate. Must be pretty special if it is Golden, and we will see why. Maybe sooner than later!
Apparently they did mistake.
Damascus Gate is actually North East, so can count as East too.
Eastern Gate is just Talmud opinion, but Talmud is just that, opinion.
As we know from Bible, Messiah is simply ‘Son of Man’/’Ben Adam’ (not a descendant of the alleged first freemason, the king Salomon) to come on the clouds actually.
Maybe the official UFO disclosure and its time (coming in June, as we know) has something to do with Daniel 9:25 too. You will know in June.
It looks like the entire ‘Davidic line’ stuff was fake (the Biblical ground for it are rather weak), other ‘bloodlines’ being just as fake, too. Well, the concept which generated so many false Messiahs (how many of them were already in Judaism?) cannot be really true.
JtA, you make an interesting point re The Messiah being the Son of Man. The Son of Man is Aquarius, and the message brought is thus “God’s Judgement is nigh”, i.e. cataclysm.
Ben Adam, son of Adam, describes bloodline only in the most general sense, simply excluding sons of fallen angels, and likely sons of Cain too.
Therefore, the ‘son of Adam’ concept does not glue too well with the Davidic line. Just looking at the genealogy of Jesus, Ruth, the wife of Boaz, is a descendant of Moab, a son of Lot and his daughter, she being a descendant of Sodom through her mother. It follows that any ‘Davidic’ messiah other than Jesus would have the same problem.
To compare, the Dead Sea Scrolls simply say about ‘the Messiah of Aaron and Israel’.
Most people who are not elderly or infirm do not have to worry about this aging problem. We are in the Age of the Beast and it’s horrors are fast approaching with the multitudes of people that have and are taking the Mark of the Beast thru the Fake Vaccine. It is not a vaccine and I saw with my own eyes today of it’s effect and presence in the human body. A worker mentioned to me that he had taken the Jab, so I offered up a kitchen magnet to see if it would stick where the Jab was delivered. The magnet stuck quite firmly on his injection site but nowhere else on his body. His friend was watching and totally freaked out. This unfortunate man has Nano-bots assembling in his body and his prognosis is grim. These Nano-particles will migrate to the back of the hand and or forehead by Quantum Computer programing for the Beast System. Foretold in the Book of Daniel, thousands of years ago, that in the latter days humans would be a mixture of iron and clay, hence the magnetic properties. The Devils Pharmakia!
Well, some rabbi said ‘Mosiah, do not take the vaccine!’. But the hidden takeaway from this story is obviously not about covid (and anyway, the rabbi addressed Mosiah, not you), but about the fact that some rabbis apparently feel that Messiah is to be their Golem.
Which may tell you something about former Messiahs, as there was no Messiah as of yet who wouldn’t be surrounded by rabbis. Examples: Sabbbatai Zevi, Jacob Frank, Lubavitcher Rebbe (that was a tad too obvious, hm hm).
In other words, no messiah without a priest, messiah is a king but not a priest; a truth well expressed by Dostoyevski in his story of ‘Jesus and Grand Inquisitor’ , a part of ‘Brothers Karamazov’ novel.
This has nothing to do with Biblical ‘ben Adam’ Messiah, of course.
This sounds like a very odd interpretation, Julian.
I was targeting a popular rex et sacerdos idea of Melchizedek king-priest, realized also by Roman emperor aka pontifex maximus (well, to be precise, he was pontifex but not rex and yet deus). In some distant way the idea was reflected by nicknaming Donald Trump as ‘God-Emperor’, in the way of deified Roman emperors.
The idea of unity of earthly and heavenly powers used to be popular in medieval times and was responsible for emperor-pope conflict too.
However, the idea apparently is not a part of Messiah concept, at least not of ‘Messiah ben David’, which points to the fact that it is actually a limited concept. Such a Messiah is rex. But who is then sacerdos/pontifex…? Some circumvent this problem, proposing rebbes as messiahs, but this is obviously wrong.
Maybe a pun:
Chevron shuts Tamar. = Chevron shuts Messiah.
Tamar, the heroic prostitute of the bloodline is of course the essential element of Davidic line.
Note Askhelon is an old Phoenician city, not a Jewish one.
This Tamar platform is 23 km away from the coast. A hint 😉
How much of a war can be staged…?
‘The IDF attempted to trick the terror group into believing that two soldiers had in fact been injured in order to prevent Hezbollah from conducting additional attacks on Israel by making it believe it had settled the score.
To do so, the IDF flew two men covered in fake blood and bandages in a helicopter to Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center — a scene that was filmed by Israeli media.’
I could post lots of pictures of faked, posed photo-ops to gain sympathy for a cause from Israel… and from Arab Palestinians… and from Syrians… and from Americans… and pretty much everybody. No army or nation is innocent. And specifically in the area near Jerusalem… Everybody acts like their group has the most ancient and meaningful claim. Well, the Arab claim at best goes back just over 1300 years. The Jews’ claim goes back over 3500 years. And somebody else was there before that. Same thing everywhere. We could call Texas the Occupied North Bank Territories after Americans took the land by force from Mexico. Of course there was someone else there before Mexicans… It never ends.
