Diwali 2023 Bank Holidays: Check the complete list of holidays here.
Living in Venice, California, is a man who thinks he can live forever. Yes. Forever. Bryan Johnson, 46, is a tech entrepreneur who is currently a centimillionaire spending all his time focusing on just one goal: not dying. Mentioned in Time Magazine, Bryan Johnson claims he’s here to bring an evolution for humans and ‘Death’ won’t be a part of it.
All through this time, Bryan has successfully hired a team of doctors who help me to reduce his biological age. His ways are peculiar but it is believed to be working. According to some sources, Bryan has spent 4 million dollars on what he calls a ‘Blueprint’ –a life extension system.
This system involved gulping up 111 pills everyday, wearing a gadget on your head that throws red light into your scalp, collecting your own stool to examine it and sleeping with tiny airpods like devices to measure your erections every night. Not just this, Johnson also believes in not eating unhealthy and less than eight hours of sleep per night is an act of violence.

Just like elite athletes and celebs try to soften the age blow by taking therapeutics therapy to keep their young bods from hyperbaric and cryotherapy chambers to recover sleepwear. Many of these known names also support Unity Biotechnology, a company devoted to developing therapeutics to slow or reverse diseases associated with ageing. But not Johnson, he isn’t following a restricted routine to just tone his muscles and stay wrinkle-free, he is doing it to avoid old-age problems but to eliminate them entirely. He believes ‘death is optional and he won’t do it.’
He has outsourced his entire body to a team of doctors who believe that by following this rigid routine, Johnson wants to achieve organs and body parts to function like that of an 18 year old. The team also recently studied that Johnson, who is 46, has the heart health of a 37 year old and bones of a 30-year-old. His research has shown that this system is better at managing human bodies.
Redefining the term ‘Human’
Johnson says that his strict regimen for diet and body is somewhere near to the Italian renaissance and invention of Calculus in the pantheon of human achievement. In search of answers, Time sent their team to his house– not looking to find out whether his system works in reducing age or not but to actually figure out what a human life would look like if it was run on algorithms. It’s not astonishing that some tech savvy is finally trying to figure out how to minimally live a life that does not end like everyone else– in death, what’s really consuming the train of thoughts here is even if we could ever find a way to optionalize Death, will it be worth it? So, if you could live on forever, would you do it?
