New findings featured on the British Web site, Nature Chemical Biology, indicate a way to block the aging of cells. Prof. Kim Tae-kook at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology explained:

“All cells face an inevitable death as they age. On this path, cells became lethargic and in the end stop dividing but we witnessed that (our) synthetic compound,CGK733, can block the process. . . We also found it can reverse aging, by revitalizing already-lethargic cells. Theoretically, this can give youth to the elderly via rejuvenating cells.’’ the 41-year-old said. (Korea Times )


  1. OMG!
    Oh my GOD! That EXACT THEORY was first postulated by this doctor fellow in an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine! Lethargic cells” is the same as his description of “cells getting bored

  2. Sci-Fi or Fantasy
    I was just talking to my kids yesterday about whether the Matrix is Sci-Fi or Fantasy and what the difference is.

    I guess we concluded they intermix a lot, but Sci Fi comes from humans developing new technologies (and then, meeting other civilizations in space — once the humans get far enough away from Earth.)

    And we concluded that some of the psychic abilities portrayed in the Matrix are not out of the question. Just because we don’t have the tools to measure something doesn’t mean the FIELD is not there. Quantum physics and Chaos Theory are giving us a glimpse of just how far down the rabbit hole we can go.

    Thanks for the observation, fayanora… Great picture, btw, it looks like it was taken for this occasion! (cool name too!)
