CAN THE HUMAN CODE BE CRACKED, HACKED AND MANIPULATED

CAN THE HUMAN CODE BE CRACKED, HACKED AND MANIPULATED

By:  Alexander Stone

Not only is our metacapital economy affecting our global economy, it is also affecting our scientific economy, efforts and direction. Amidst the direction of earth or man, the longevity of man, the quest for the elixir of life, the fountain of youth  has long been sought, and now the question is, is it an elixir or have we had the power within our closed, human system all along. Moreover, can the human code be cracked, hacked and manipulated.

Individuals, as the driving factor in our metamodern society, have taken science into their hands, along with the key incentive, funding.

Hedge funder and investor, Joon Yun, an individual, a true metamodernist, has founded and is funding, “$1 Million Palo Alto Longevity Prize”.  Launched in 2014, it was formed as an incentive to for the enthused all over the world to be able to compete to see if they could hack the human code. The code basic to every life which, if cracked could, elongate our lives by 50%; at least that is the hope of the “Longevity Prize”.

Not only is there a million dollar prize, but there is access and partnerships already in place for further funding for this holy grail to see if the human code can be cracked, hacked and manipulated.
