Made me laugh!
 
laughter is free medicine, it releases endorphins in the brain, relaxes us :)   lol.   Lesson of the gif:  if you are not nice to your fellow humans, nature (the bush) turns against you. lol

http://www.everydayhealth.com/columns/grossman-a-healthy-longevity/laughter-and-longevity/ has a laughter article written by the doctor who co-authored a book about Physical Immortality with Google Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil ► http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Nine-Steps-Living-Forever/dp/1605292079.  

Happiness is a choice to a great extent ► http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/09/scientific-proof-that-you_n_4384433.html.  There are always 100 reasons to be happy, if we look at life from different lenses.  :)  ☻♥☺  Ron Gutman: The hidden power of smiling is a 7 min TED talk video explaining more on the hormone chemistry of smiling/laughing and being happy. :)


More laughter will lead to World Peace, as we take ourselves less seriously, and then it will lead to PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY, as we overcome all diseases, aging by using the trillions lost in wars for longevity.

Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  

Calico is not alone.  Other billionaires have started Immortality efforts.  There are scientists within these projects who even talk of connecting the soul body (not all believe in it though) with the immortal android bodies of the future. Mystics and emperors have sought physical immortality for millennia.  Modern astral researchers and mystics (vallalar.org) have thought of Immortality for many decades.  
ASPR OBE Experiment 1983 is a 25 min video about some ESP experiments.  In the video Alex Tanous explains at 7min22sec how the scientific understanding of astral energy will enable us to attain physical Immortality - just like understanding electricity brought us a lot of progress in medicine.  

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health. One day the trillions spent on war (that shortens our lives) will be used for nano robots and quantum computers that help us stay youthful for centuries.  :) 

Over time, more and more people in governments and private sectors will allocate hundreds of billions of dollars towards Immortality related projects.  Some billionaires have given already hundreds of millions of dollars to stem cells research ($100 Million Gift from T. Denny Sanford Launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center) and other anti-aging ventures.    This process of shifting the societal focus to constructive Immortality endeavors will be done in hundreds of ways, even thru Departments of Immortality at the Government level and University Level, thru new startups that focus on anti-gravity belts or nanobots and apps able to extend lifespan.  Video games will often be about how people help each other, how they find Immortality technologies and cures for aging, how they bring a World of Peace and Immortality.  A culture of Immortality will emerge and pervade the contents of movies, songs, TV programs, radio, books, and all media, thus enabling us to create that reality of Immortality.   Life will be valued more than anything else. :)  Millions of people will dedicate their entire lives to manifesting this great Immortality future because inside we are all beings of compassion. :)

Lord's is the home of Cricket and what a fantastic place it is. So good infact, that companies hire the terrace bar for parties. My steel drum band has performed there many times and you can guess which tune is the most requested. If visiting Lord's on foot, you can easily walk to the nearest tube station (St John's Wood) in less than 5 minutes.

Fanhams Hall is one of the outstanding venues for weddings or corporate hire in Hertfordshire. My steel drum band has performed there many times. From the moment that you enter the long drive you can see that the grounds are well maintained and the building has lots of character in and out.

The Lancaster has an excellent location. Hyde Park is across the road and there is a tube station under the hotel. My steel drum band has performed there for some corporate parties during the conference season. The service is first class, as expected in a luxury hotel and they make your life very easy as a guest.

I use the Park Plaza Victoria many times as a social hangout because I like the bar area and the service is good. My steel drum band has also performed in the function suite downstairs for some corporate parties. Overall, this is a good choice of hotel as it has a very central location with a main line station around the corner and a new shopping centre nearby.

For me, the most important thing at a luxury hotel is the staff who deliver the services. My steel drum band covered a luxury wedding at the Savoy recently and they made it really easy for us. They treated us like guests, so imagine how the guests get treated. It was incredible. Also, I have to mention that the acoustics in the River Room are perfect for any live ensemble.

The InterContinental on Park Lane is a superb luxury hotel. I have had drinks there many times and dinner in the Cookbook Cafe. My steel drum band has also performed there on two occasions; one was a grand Indian wedding and the other was a private party in the conservatory. The staff at this hotel are amongst the most polite and helpful that you will find at any luxury hotel.

I like the grounds at Gaynes Park, the perimeter has the most beautiful flowers. My steel drum band covered a wedding reception there last year and it was very nice.
