You have stumbled onto the home page of a life-extensionist and an inveterate scribbler. I love life and I want to prolong it as much as possible. I am intensely interested in almost everything. And I love being able to eloquently put my thoughts and feelings into words.

This site mostly contains writings since 1990. The only material written before 1990 consists of a few essays in the history, philosophy, political economy and travel sections — by far the largest contribution being my history book. Although I list copyright dates below of 1990 or later, many of the pages on this site cannot be ascribed a particular date. In particular, my Mechanisms of Aging essay was begun in the mid-1990s and has probably been revised every year since — sometimes on a daily basis — and I expect to keep revising this essay for the rest of my life.
