Privilege Has Its Rewards — How Longevity Will Become The New Class Inequality

Privilege Has Its Rewards — How Longevity Will Become The New Class Inequality | shubush augment | Scoop.it

Here’s a news flash that isn’t really new: the rich live longer than everyone else. Now, on the surface, this seems like a no-brainer. The ability to afford the best of everything should translate into better health while the inability to pay for even basic care, not to mention preventative medicine, is going to cut a person’s life short. For the threshold of the average human life span to surpass say 100 years, everyone should live like the rich do. The upper class has access to better resources, such as quality food and health care. They are also more informed, have the best education and have access to more opportunities. As a result, all of these factors collectively contribute to an improved quality of life. And if infomercials for juicers have taught us anything it’s that a better quality of life extends longevity.
But the proof is in the pudding…and that pudding better be full of statistics to back up this kind of claim.
Fortunately, studies have been going on for years to investigate the longevity gap.

Learning to See in 3-D: A Neurobiologist Rewires Her Own Brain

Learning to See in 3-D: A Neurobiologist Rewires Her Own Brain | shubush augment | Scoop.it

As a professor neurobiology at Mount Holyoke College, Barry herself taught students the conventional wisdom that the human brain is malleable “during a ‘critical period’ in infancy but loses the capacity to rewire in adulthood” -- using her own story to illustrate the point. Then, when she was 48 years old, she saw a developmental optometrist, and began training her eyes to see differently. She spent months practicing visual therapy exercises.

Becoming Ourselves - memetics

Becoming Ourselves - memetics | shubush augment | Scoop.it

Our biological limitations often make us feel uncomfortable with our own humanity but at the end of the day we are forced to admit that we are human. For some of us this may be easier than others. Despite how we may feel mentally we are biologically human and we might as well embrace it. We are seeking to transcend into something greater so we will have more potential as human beings. We are finally in a position where augmentations are becoming a reality.

With our brains being capable of so much It would be a shame to limit them to our current biology. We can start out with the basics like tattoos and piercings and remember how the first time we were modified we felt ourselves transforming. While some of us got tattoos and piercings for subcultural reasons there were those of us who got tattoos and piercings to look and feel like the people we truly were. I feel that this is what augmentations are all about and that we will continue to transform ourselves in the future to push our physical boundaries and become what we desire.
