Bill Andrews on Singularity 1 on 1: Ageing is not going to cure itself!

Thumbnail image for Bill Andrews on Singularity 1 on 1: Ageing is not going to cure itself!

Some will say that Bill Andrews is totally crazy – at 61 he runs an average of 10 miles per day and at least one 100 mile marathon per month. He also wants to “Cure Ageing or Die Trying”. No wonder Bill is one of the 2 main protagonists of a new documentary about life-extension aptly titled The Immortalists. As to whether he is crazy or not, I myself hope that he totally is. Because, if we are ever going to defeat ageing, we are going to […]

In my opinion The Immortalists is a the most frank, open-minded and uniquely personal documentary about life-extension in general and Aubrey de Grey and Bill Andrews, in particular. I was privileged to attend its international premiere during the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto, Canada and instantly knew that I have to interview David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg on Singularity 1 on 1. I believe that everyone interested in life-extension – whether they think we should or we should not even attempt it, must see the […]

Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist, bestselling author, acclaimed public speaker, renowned futurist, and popularizer of science. As co-founder of String Field Theory, Dr. Kaku carries on Einstein’s quest to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into a single grand unified theory of everything.

During our 90 […]

Digital  crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin are the singularity of money and, after spending some time educating myself, I have turned from a skeptic into a fan. If you are not familiar with the topic then I suggest that you start with my interview with Andreas Antonopoulos. In that conversation we lay down the basics and discuss why “Bitcoin is not currency; it’s the internet of money!” If you are already intellectually comfortable with Bitcoin, then it is time to talk about Bitcoin 2.0 and the best candidate so […]

During our conversation with Stuart we cover issues such as: his transition from hard […]

This is my second interview with Steven Kotler. Last time we discussed Abundance: The Future is Better than You Think – the book Steven co-wrote with Peter Diamandis. This time we are here to discuss reaching our optimum state of performance or what many of us call Flow. During our conversation with Steven Kotler we cover issues such as: the definition of flow as an optimal state of performance; his profound personal experiences of being in flow; the likelyhood of putting flow in a pill or video […]
