Can Internet logic work its magic on human bodies?
Google engineering director Ray Kurzweil, 65, is hoping so. He takes a whopping 150 supplements a day, which he calls the "first bridge."
Kurzweil is hoping he can build enough "bridges" to keep his body alive until life-lengthening technology becomes a reality.
In a recent interview with Maclean's, Kurzweil described the three bridges that would lead, in theory, to immortality.
"Bridge one, stay as healthy as possible with diet and exercise and current medicine," stated Kurzweil.
"The goal is to get to bridge two," stated Kurzweil. "Bridge two (is) the biotechnology revolution, where we can reprogram biology away from disease. And that is not the end-all either."
Kurzweil says that bridge three "is to go beyond biology to the nanotechnology revolution. At that point we can have little robots, sometimes called nanobots, that augment your immune system. We can create an immune system that recognizes all diseases, and if a new disease emerged, it could be reprogrammed to deal with new pathogens."
According to the Daily Mail, the Google executive once predicted that someday humans will be able to eat as much junk food as they desire because everyone will have a nanobot inside their bodies that will regulate nutrients and fat.
