    Dave Asprey's (BulletproofExecutive.com) Full-length presentation from BIL Conference 2011 in Long Beach (BIL is the Unconference equivalent of TED Conferences) Learn from a NY Times-published Silicon Valley entrepreneur/executive/angel who hacked his own biology to gain an unfair advantage in business and life. This presentation talks about real-world techniques I used to upgrade my brain by 12 IQ points, lose 100lbs, radically reduce sleep, and fit 40 years of Zen meditation into one very long week. This talk leverages years of nonprofit work with leading anti-aging physicians and researchers like Aubrey de Grey and Gary Taubes, along with extensive research (1300 references) completed for The Better Baby Book, my upcoming (Wiley & Sons) book about how to have a smarter baby by hacking your environment during pregnancy. I'll introduce the exposome, explain why it's bigger than your genome, and why it's infinitely easier to biohack at any age than your genome. We'll cover the top 5 things you can do to upgrade yourself, ranging from bio and neurofeedback to hacking mitochondrial function. I've helped hundreds of people upgrade their biology and their careers at the same time.

      • 'Grow Your Own' - from the Policing Genes Project

        Policing Genes Pharmaceutical companies are experimenting with pharming – genetically engineering plants to produce useful and valuable drugs. Currently undergoing field trials are tomato plants that produce a vaccine for Alzheimer’s disease and potatoes that immunise against hepatitis B. Many more plant-made-pharmaceuticals are being developed in laboratories around the world. However, the techniques employed to insert genes into plants are within reach of the amateur…and the criminal. Policing Genes speculates that, like other technologies, genetic engineering will also find a use outside the law, with innocent-looking garden plants being modified to produce narcotics and unlicensed pharmaceuticals. The genetics of the plants in your garden or allotment could become a police matter… _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ This project was done as part of the EPSRC's IMPACT Project. It was inspired by research on pollen forensics at the Centre for Security and Crime Science at University College London.

          Máximo Sandín es Doctor en Ciencias de la Biología y profesor titular de Evolución Humana en la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Lleva 15 años investigando si realmente la Teoría Evolutiva vigente es realmente un fundamento teórico apto para desarrollar toda la Ciencia de la Biología y sus conclusiones no son especialmente favorables. Según Máximo, la Biología se encuentra actualmente en un estado realmente deplorable, textualmente, en una situación esquizofrénica. En esta entrevista podéis profundizar en su investigación y "desaprender" lo que nos enseñaron en la escuela sobre el distinguido Sr. Darwin. Para profundizar en el tema, podéis ver la entrevista que he realizado a dos estudiantes de Biología sobre el MANIFIESTO POR LA BIOLOGÍA DEL SIGLO XXI: http://timefortruth.es/general/entrevista-a-dos-estudiantes-de-biologia-manifiesto-por-una-biologia-del-s-xxi-2/ Para más información, el grupo de docentes La Otra Biología: http://otrabiologia.wordpress.com Libros interesantes sobre el tema: "Pensando la Evolución, Pensando la Vida" de Máximo Sandin: http://www.kreatibestore.com/Pensando-La-Evolucion-Pensando-La-Vida La Crisis Latente del Darwinismo, de Mauricio Abdalla: http://www.kreatibestore.com/la-crisis-latente-del-darwinismo Resumen de esta entrevista: http://timefortruth.es/videos/desmontando-a-darwin/ Y aquí tenéis un resumen de temas, por tiempos: La inconsistencia del Darwinismo (1'20") El viaje de Darwin a las Galápagos (8') El Darwinismo como apéndice científico de la Teoría del Libre Mercado de Adam Smith (11'40") La Teoría evolucionista de Darwin, qué dice realmente (16'15") La Eugenesia (24'30") El ADN y los genes (35'20") El gen egoísta / El ADN basura (39') La Biología en situación esquizofrénica (45'50") Somos virus y bacterias (49') La aparición de la vida en la tierra (1hr 01') La relación de la Evolución con las grandes catástrofes ambientales (1hr 05') El virus de la Gripe (1hr 08') El Tamiflu (1hr 13') El origen del SIDA (1hr 15') El cancer (1hr 28') La Otra Biología (1hr 31') Teorías sobre el origen de la Vida (1hr 38') Acerca del mundo "conspiranoico" (1hr 40') Su experiencia como docente universitario (1hr 43') Otros biólogos disidentes (1hr 49') Acerca del debate Darwinismo/Creacionismo (1hr 51") EVOLUCION UNA BELLA HISTORIA (Conferencia de Máximo Sandin en la Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche el 26/11/10: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb1WA9OEdAI Alish www.TimeForTruth.es

            Over the last 20 years, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has been issuing patents to universities and private companies on raw human genes. One company or university is given a legal monopoly over a molecule that is inside every human being and many other animals. This documentary explores the legal, ethical, and clinical ramifications of human gene patenting.

                Part 2 Genes; Advanced WW. An overview of boofing technique & the introduction of the idea of flaring to teaching advanced kayaking technique. In the years before at Gene17 we had attempted to conceptualise the dynamic movement of the boat and the paddler, through an arcing move. Now this is more about the paddler through both leaning and edging to gain purchase on their paddle blade at an important transition in the rapid, than the resulting product of a boof where it is used in most cases. The dynamic movement of flaring accesses the rivers energy, often through the shape of the feature, like riding arc of a curling wave, or breaking out by driving the boat over a boulders pressure wave into the eddy be hide, or punching a diagonal lateral on a vee hole, it's all flaring not just boffin. On reflection, since the making of this segment in 2005, the coaching of boofin' has moved on, and these days we promote a torso rotation technique that used the core strength of the upper body, rather than a hip thrust, as in Genes. Perhaps time for an update!

                • Dr. Joseph Farrell: Genes, Giants, Monsters and Men

                  Guest: Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Author of "Genes, Giants, Monsters and Men." Dr. Joseph P. Farrell digs deep … deep into millenniums past and controversial ancient texts and deep into the planetary system. He’s a scholar for sure, a forensic one at that — one who writes three books at a time, all done in a pre-arranged sequence. His audience is made up of astute, probing individuals; they are ones who don’t believe the stuff they are spoon fed on the news – “Mostly people that kind of realize there may be more to human history than the standard disciples history and biology will allow,” says Farrell who received a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Oxford. “The substantial majority of the population is in the dark,” he says. “They are doing all sorts of things in the United Kingdom. They are putting human blood into pigs and mice.” Farrell’s digging into the past has revealed the chimera, any number of hybrid mythical monsters comprised of body parts from several animals, often with the tail ending in a snake’s head. As a kid growing up, and into his college years, Farrell wanted to be, first a physicist, then a philosopher and finally, a theologian. These days, he wanders into some dark stuff. He talks of the cosmic war (interplanetary warfare) and the elite with their hidden agenda. “It (the Cosmic war) had a special place 3.2 million years ago. It has become ongoing underground guerilla warfare. It’s going on right now. Most find it far-out, a conspiracy — science fiction. It is fraught with all sorts of danger. In the United Kingdom, they are genetically tinkering with the human genome. It suggests a hidden process – a hybrid species to begin with.” All of this brings to mind the H. G. Wells 1896 classic “The Island of Dr. Moreau” and the 1996 movie remake with Marlon Brando playing Moreau, who sadistically tinkered with DNA, creating hybrid creatures by mating man and animal. It’s right up the alley in Farrell’s sometimes grotesque neighborhood. It’s tough to wrap your brain around the strange stuff he uncovers. How much is real and how much is conjecture? Farrell estimates that 20% is real and 80% is conjecture. “I present my speculations and argument and try to leave it up to the reader,” he says. Giza Death Star (The Website of Dr. Joseph P.
