“Immortalism is a worldview that sees Disease, Old Age, and Death as humanity’s most basic existential problems and so it advocates their scientific cures. It sees mortality as the source of our major problems and evils. It explains that short-lived mortals don’t really care about the planet enough to do what it takes to fend off the apocalypse of Global Warming, Climate Change, Biodiversity Collapse, and the specter of a Nuclear Holocaust.”–Elixxir, author of The ImmorTalist Manifesto & Cure Disease, Old Age, and Death

Despite more a century of biomedical research on Cancer, Heart Disease, Stroke, Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, why are there no cures?

The National Institute on Aging was created by the U.S. Congress in1974. Why have there been no anti-aging breakthroughs? Nothing to save the older generations facing or struggling with Old Age.

Will the breakthroughs for cancer, heart disease, stroke, obesity, alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and other aging-related killers come in time for you?

How can we speed up the arrival of the Breakthroughs so they come soon enough to save us?

How can we make sure the Breakthroughs will be affordable or available to all who need them or want them?

Last but not least: How do we fend off the nightmare scenarios of Global Heating, Climate Crisis, Biodiversity Collapse, and Nuclear Holocaust?

These are the existential questions for every human and for our species. Unlike Industrial Capitalism, Immortalism sees these questions and issues as fundamental to our lives and to our times. And Immortalism provides the best answers to them.

Why are the United States (US) and the European Union (EU) so cheap in funding aging research to save us from aging-related diseases like cancer, heart disease, stroke, alzheimer’s, and obesity, but so extravagant when it comes to budgets for the military and needless, reckless, losing wars? And let’s not forget when it comes to tax cuts, subsidies, and bailouts for the rich and for big business, paid for by the middle class and the poor, the sky’s the limit.

If you think government should fund aging research much more so we can alleviate the degradations and indignities of old age, which will happen to you sooner than you can imagine. If you are very concerned about Global Warming, Climate Change, Biodiversity Collapse, and the specter of a nuclear Third World War and wonder why the government is not doing what it takes. Then you might be a closet Immortalist.

Discover what Immortalism say about these existential threats to you individually, and to us collectively. After all, you and your loved ones’ future is at stake.

Unlike Capitalism which is an 18th century ideology, Immortalism is the worldview for the 21st century and our new millenium.

The ImmorTalist Manifesto by Elixxir was first published in 2001 and ushered in a new era in Immortalism. It presents the most compelling case for Immortalism and it offers the most trenchant critique of Industrial Capitalism. In addition, it provides the roadmap to cure Cancer, Heart Disease, Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Obesity and other major aging-related causes of death, to slow, stop, or even reverse human biological aging, and to fend off the worst of Industrial Capitalism’s toxic “by-products”–Global Warming, Climate Crisis, Biodiversity Collapse, and World Wars.

Until Elixxir’s Immortalist Manifesto, all Immortalist worldviews and schemes were either Religious Immortalism (based on belief in a heaven or afterlife), or Utopian Immortalism (founded on faith in the inexorable exponential progress of Science and Technology under the aegis of Capitalism).

Where does Transhumanism, Cryonics, Ray Kurzweil or Aubrey de Grey, Caloric Restrictionists, Life Extentionists, and Forever-Youngers fit in all this?

Discover the difference between them and Elixxir’s 21st century Immortalism–scientific, not science fiction; realistic, not hyper-optimistic; and astutely political, grasping that cures for cancers, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and other aging-related killers will not happen quickly without government-funded research being dramatically increased and without the correct research paradigm. And Elixxir points out history tells us this will not likely happen in time to rescue us from the jaws of Disease, Old Age, and Death without at least a powerful immortalist movement.

Even better immortalist parties able to gain power. And best of all, at least one major economy with advanced biomedical research and pharmaceutical complex becoming an Immortalist State. This means it makes biomedical research funding to find cures or preventions for major killer-diseases, including most of all the Human Aging Syndrome (H.A.S.), a top state priority. This is reflected not merely in lofty rhetoric but in annual government budgets.

Only then can we maximize our chances for success in this most ancient and most undying of mortal quests. The only game in life worth playing. And for the first time in human history, the prize is within sight and within grasp.

Why Immortalism? Because we love Life and demand more of it!
