Peter and Dan discuss having a Longevity Mindset and how that affects all aspects of life. How long you live is a function of many factors, including your mindset. You can actually “Will yourself to death—or will yourself to a longer healthspan.” How long do you think you will live? 80 years old? Maybe, 90? What would have to change for you to believe that you could live to 120 years old?
In this episode:
- Peter gives evidence of exponential medicine, and why you don’t have to accept the cards you’re dealt. Technologies like genome sequencing, RNA transcriptomics, Wnt pathway modifiers, vaccines, CRISPR, liquid biopsies, CAR-T cells, Gene Therapy, exosomes, and stem cells are just some of the technologies in development.
- Dan explains when and how he chose the goal of living to 156 years, and how this has shaped his mindset over the years.
- Peter and Dan agree that many things contribute to a Longevity Mindset, including what you read and watch, your community, your diet and exercise, and ultimately what you believe the future will be like.
