Humankind has made countless achievements and overcome endless obstacles since the beginning of its existence. There are many more incredibly gracious opportunities and grand challenges ahead of us. This movement works to defeat aging and achieve Unlimited Lifespans.

Much of the world still believes that nothing can be done about the traditional death that aging has imposed upon everyone that has ever been born. We can now combat aging, and are already successful in similar cases.

As we all know, these are rapidly advancing times. Science and biology have been continuing to perfect their abilities, working on our bodies, then within them, and now within our very cells themselves. Science has defeated many forms of affliction and damage that accumulate in a variety of cellular diseases. Now, science is working to defeat the types of affliction and damage that accumulate to cause aging.

Achieving Unlimited Lifespans is now only a matter of the speed at which the world works to accomplish this.

We all have a chance to benefit from Unlimited Lifespans. Join us at http://www.longecity.org/ and help us get the word out. We need all new incoming support like there is no tomorrow.

What you can do:

-Register at http://www.longecity.org/ and then answer the questions that are pinned in the introduce yourself section.

It’s as simple as that. Our staff then takes this information and contacts you to help you get in where you fit in and are interested.

Longecity Projects:

Some notable past projects include the documentary, Exploring Life Extension – the book, The Scientific Conquest of Death – and hosting International Conferences.

Many of our present projects can be found in the Action section of our forum, and are too numerous to list.

Our future projects include the continued development of plans to inform the world, and help see this causes research through to fruition. Developing of local groups of enthusiasts and advocates for life-extension is essential for its success.

Regional Chapters


Longecity Regional Chapters are here to facilitate you with regular online and/or real time meetings for the purpose of helping to advance our cause of Advocacy& Research for Unlimited Lifespans.

As this cause continues to grow toward a movement, and eventually a mainstream item on the world’s agenda, it is inevitable that we will not be able to maintain an almost wholly online presence alone.

Here is your chance to help pioneer some of the first Longecity regional groups and help us continue to grow into all that we can and will be. Click on your area at http://www.longecity...egional-forums/

And join your local group. Staff will be here to help guide you through anything you may need help with.

There are no commitments and we can coach on you getting going and becoming a successful regional group if you request such assistance.


We can help by providing things such as sample agendas, project ideas, potential grant packages, and flexible scheduling that works for your group. We are also here to help you build these groups.

If you wish you get involved in Longevity Advocacy at a Grass Roots level please sign up below, or just join the discussion at Longecity Regional forums. Posts and articles in national languages are especially appreciated! http://www.longecity...egional-forums/


Through local groups we can facilitate real action around the world.

What do local chapters do?

-schedule chapter meetings
-schedule your own agendas or choose from suggested agendas

There's already a life extension group in Belgium, France and The Nederlands called Heales. We meet in A La Mort Subite, a pub in Brussels.


Our achieved actions include:
* Various lectures by dr. de Grey
* Life Aid Against Aging (music festival)
* Creation of a peer review journal called HJB (work in progress)

And we are now working on a new promotion campaign.

"Heales" gives 404

There was a temporary problem. It happened a few times, we are working on this very annoying problem.

At the moment, the site is online again.

This is strictly a casual meeting space for technoprogressives, singularitarians, transhumanists, futurists, speculative idealists, technofetishitists, cry-enthusiasts, hackers, activists, utopianists, life extensionists - what - e - ver.

A (somewhat?) close associate of Aubrey myself, I welcome anyone who favors the life-extensionist ideals. Most meetings so far have been small, I am just there reading a book in case no one shows up. In the long run I'll slowly evolve it in another format.

From the above post:

Meeting here at 1900 (though we may decide to change the location, please keep tabs here!). I'll wait from 1900 till 20:30. The topic will again be "emerging technologies with a bite; low hanging apples to crowbar in change between 2012 and 2022, threats and opportunities".

Saturday 19 November

I did not follow this to accurately, maybe this is already done, but I think we should team up with Heales. Not in the least because of the name of the venue that they are (or were?) meeting in.

I did intend to join a meeting in Den Haag some time ago, but that failed due to a busy schedule. Are the Heales people still meeting on a regular basis?

Name or Alias:
Tim Suetens, aka TimothyParadox or MentalParadox

Country and town:
Belgium, Wijnegem

What is the most miles you can travel to meet? (suggest 50 max)
Due to a motorcycle accident I can't go anywhere at the moment, but I hope to have a car within the next 6 months.
I'm okay with 50 miles, I guess.

Biggest town with in 50 miles of you:
Antwerp, Brussels

What got you interested in life extension:
My interest in transhumanism in general was sparked by a silly television show on NBC, "Heroes". But it was when I accidentally
stumbled upon a TED lecture by Aubrey De Grey that I saw the value of ILE. No, not the value - the necessity.

Skype User I.D. (its free to download):

Would you be willing to host a meeting, or know of a suitable meeting place in your area, i.e. coffee shop, pub, etc:
I'm willing to try, but of course I'd like to know more about the actual nature of the position - I mean, what am I *exactly* supposed to do?
Is it within my abilities? I graduated high school and studied english and dutch for a year, but I have no expert knowledge on Biotechnology
or nanotechnology whatsoever. I've never done anything like this.

How much time can you commit to working on this, going to meetings, putting up flyers, etc:
Currently I have a fulltime day job: 7-18 from monday to friday. But on weekends I tend to have plenty of free time.
