To keep in line with chronology it would have to be some ratio of language handover from oldest living to youngest to whom it must be relevant and socially worthwhile to care about maintaining a massive mountain of health care records.

As an example, would a 5,000 year old have anything in common with a modern day English speaking teenager and need to maintain any interest? Chances are if they are 5,000 it is probably because they grew out of all that young retarded shit and left it behind for good.

Without intervention 140 seems to be a reasonable limit.

With intervention, there's nothing stopping us, thanks Aubrey

Hypothetically, forever. But the odds aren't in your favor.

to ~140-150 at most if you can afford all that tech. Beyond that, I would say we can't go longer than that without recreating brain cells and maintain the same memory.

Your body stops aging at 90+. The problem is your body is such a worn down useless piece of shit by that point that the common cold can knock you out, and your brain has probably turned to mush so there's no quality of life.
Theoretically you could put someone into a hermetically sealed bubble with access to top tier medical experts and you could potentially live indefinitely as a grumpy bed ridden skeleton.

>> No.11986630

>Your body stops aging at 90+.
Yes, before 90 your chance to die increases each year, but after that it stays the same. You die simply because it is already very small. Lift it up a bit, and you will easily get to 140 or even 200.

>> No.11986641

The real question is, what is the quality of life like. If you're 110 years old, but blind, deaf, toothless, and retarded from advanced dementia how much are you going to look forward to another 90 years?

>> No.11986646

Is there a chance of someone like me, 27 years old, living to 300+?

Also, everyone keeps forgetting that we want to extend the healthspan as well, so you might be biologically 30-40 at 80-90 years old.

>> No.11986661

>Your body stops aging at 90+.
Slows down maybe, but stops?

>> No.11986666

I think if you will live to 150, you will also live to 300 and 600 because if you fix the most important breaking point, then improving the technology further would be easier.

>> No.11986670

Roughly a few hour.
Then that person go "asleep" and die. Hours later a new person similar to the previous one will wake up.

Roughly 7 years.
Beyond that every single cell of your body have been replaced like Theseus ship.

Scolastica Oliveri lived in Bivona, Italy, 1448–1578 (age 129–130), according to the archive of Monastero di San Paolo in Bivona located in Palermo.

>> No.11987076

Indefinite. The most damage that we suffer is currently:
Iron accumulating and replacing manganese. This turns MnSOD, a protein that protects from oxidative damage into a protein that oxidizes. Also causes obesity, diabetes and brain damage.
Copper deficiency. Causes dementia and iron accumulation. Copper is needed in iron and manganese regulating proteins and manganese is needed in copper regulating proteins, so deficiency in both may sem better than deficiency in one.
Calcium overload, leading to calcification. 300mg is sufficient and Mg seems to be necessary for Ca export from cells. Death from cardiovascular disease in the 60s is usually from this.

120 is a cultural number that has been tossed around a lot. Somewhere early on in the bible, after Methuselah and a bunch of people live anywhere from 300 to 1000 years, god says okay this is ridiculous, nobody lives over 120 now. The pleasure of the OP is that she disproves this, while at the same time validating the range as an approximate natural upper bound.

In the action flick T2, the decidedly inhuman terminator robot indicates that his power cell lasts for 120 years.

>> No.11987501

Naturally, I think it's 120. I don't think Jeanne Calment lived that long. If you look at past revisions of her wiki it was stuffed with images of her daughter. Aubrey thinks so too.

Consciousness is present in sleep. For example if the tv is on they don't wake up, but if you say someone's name they wake up. It's just different to waking consciousness.

>> No.11987699

Cool. All according to plan.

>> No.11987705

So as soon as you are asleep, the body host a different less-able person capable of understanding only basic stimulus related to the memory of the previous deceased person. Then when the body wake up it's another whole person again.


>> No.11987733

77 is a better number.

I disagree. 63 is the optimal age of death.

149 seems to be the biological limit. Physically, your cells can only last so long before they literally break down and kill themselves.

It's the manganese->iron mismetallation what kills them. Once iron gets into superoxide dismutase in place of manganese, the enzyme starts destroying cells instead of protecting them. There is nothing programmed about it, the body only fails to keep the iron away.

>> No.11993842

Then we just need to take iron out of our diet

>> No.11993888 [DELETED] 

Basically yes.

>> No.11993915 [DELETED] 

We'd need some other metal that will replace iron in hemoglobin (it seems Mn would work in myoglobin, but not hemoglobin), but basically yes.

>> No.11993954

Basically. At least the accepted levels are wrong, and likely based on people suffering iron overload (the "latent iron deficiency" is in fact normal). The problem is that not all proteins could work with Mn instead, especially hemoglobin, which mean we would still need some iron, unless the iron can be replaced with yet another metal.
