Kaku talks about evolution of brain structure, with human brains distinguished by pre-frontal cortex - the seat of rational thinking. Then jumps to talk about "consciousness" as a "mysterious object". This already dismisses the entire mind/brain discussion/debate.

The key question is whether science's limiting to the study of "objects" can actually fully deal with the question of "consciousness" or "awareness" - a subjective, non-material realm (other than ignore or dismiss it).  There are many interesting contributions to the study of consciousness in brain science, but it remains questionable whether scientific study can completely unravel or explain consciousness without missing the most important aspects.  Maybe "you can't get here from there", but it is fascinating to try.

Check out Part 2 on my interview where we talk about topics like impacts of technological disruption, life coaching, optimizing health and reframing "retirement" as healthy life extension unfolds.  [35 minute podcast]

Great overview from David Wood of London Futurists of how technology will have dramatic and widespread impacts.

Imagine the progress if NIH devoted more than the under 1% of budget towards healthy life extension!

Article in Time Mag reports Google supporting life extension via a new company. (see http://techland.time.com/2013/09/18/google-vs-death/ )

"That Google openly backs longevity science is a tremendous boon to everyone who advocates for greater research funding in this field, and to everyone seeking to raise funding in this field." Reason

Mainstream article on tissue regeneration. I've been predicting that wide acceptance (say 50%+) of likelihood of radical life extension will occur within about 5-8 years based on acceleration of progress. What do you think?

This headline will get much bigger as life extension technologies heat up over the next few years.  This was discussed in my "End of Retirement" free report.  download here=    http://goo.gl/qQjnW
