I just called one of my Senators and left a voicemail telling them we must defeat aging. I mentioned that he should attempt to increase public funding available to organizations like SENS Research Foundation, Methuselah Foundation, and Life Extension Advocacy Foundation. I called one of my Senators and requested that he read the book Ending Aging by Aubrey de Grey and Michael Rae, and that he do...
Internet social media technologies and cryptocurrencies together have recently enabled a new sort of human organization to emerge, decentralized autonomous organizations. Decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO’s) are a new ways for humans to collectively achieve worthwhile goals. DAO's can be for profit or nonprofit, or somewhere in between, like benefit corporations. Getting started and cr...
I went to Egghead Software stores when I was young. This was a manifestation of technologies. Medical technologies related to defeating aging will be good. They will be a manifestation of technology. Read the book Ending Aging by Aubrey de Grey. We must defeat aging. Aging kills about 100,000 humans every 24 hours. This is approximately 1 human per second. This must be reduced significantly....

What countries are ICO's legal in? How can one run an ICO in USA and offer it to USA citizens and not violate US securities related laws? Is it legal to be in USA and run an ICO to countries that allow ICO's? I think these are interesting and useful questions to ask. Can ICO's fund a decentralized autonomous organization? I have an idea for an ICO to fund the creation of open source soft...
Social media sites that share net profits with content creators need to exist. They should have self serve advertising that accepts cryptocurrencies for payment.   Perhaps Honest.cash can offer self serve advertising that accepts Bitcoin Cash for payment.  Perhaps readers could pay a small fee every month to not see ads. 90% of net profits from advertising could be rewarded back to content cr...
Tenqido is a DAO effectively. A DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization. As far as I know, I, Michael Ten, founded Tenqido. Perhaps it already exists in other universes, if those exist. Perhaps the idea of Tenqido has always existed. A Course In Miracles has inspired Tenqido. Aikido has inspired Tenqido. Qigong has inspired Tenqido. Snowboarding has inspired Tenqido. Anyone can be par...

Are there any websites that offer self serve advertising, and accept cryptocurrencies for payment? Twitter, Google, and Facebook all allow for online self serve advertising. They seem to only accept national fiat currencies for payment. Are there any popular websites, probably social media websites, that accept offer self serve advertising features, and accept cryptocurrencies for payment? I h...
To coerce or commit someone and to psychiatrically “treat” them involuntarily is either or both selfish and an imposition of a theological belief on another. That is, involuntarily committing someone is selfish and/or does not respect freedom of religion. It implements a theological position by positing that a human may not be better off after they die. It seems that if there is nothing after deat...
Presuming humans evolved and what not, if we could simulate the universe, and then create a digital representation of a humans exact body and brain at a certain point in time, and then use molecular manufacturing to create that body and brain in space and time, then would not that person / human have been resurrected? Perhaps the questions is if you find raising the dead desirable. Why would any...
Currently, in many places, when someone poses “an immediate danger” to their-self, police and in turn psychiatrists can detain them for treatment. This is despite not having broken any laws. If someone’s life is so miserable and weary of life that they want to end it, should not they be allowed to? Should not they be allowed to do this in as peaceful a way possible? It seems they should be offered...
For those in a psychiatric unit voluntarily, being in a psychiatric hospital can be comforting and helpful, potentially. Although, many individuals are not given a chance to give authentic informed consent much or most of the time. For those in a psychiatric unit involuntarily, such a nonconsensual experience can feel like abuse and even like torture sometimes. The psychiatric survivor movement ...
In the ultimate sense, reincarnation is impossible. There is no past or future, and the idea of birth into a body has no meaning either once or many times.  Reincarnation cannot, then, be true in any real sense. Our only question should be, “Is the concept helpful?” And that depends, of course, on what it is used for. If it is used to strengthen the recognition of the eternal nature of life, it ...
I remember when the term “compassionate conservative” was introduced, or at least when it was introduced to me, maybe 15 to 20 years ago. In retrospect it seems what was really meant was “mildly compassionate conservatives” or “sort of compassionate conservatives”. What is being presented in this short piece is theory and opinion, and potentially subject to change and refinement. Perhaps it is j...
Part of the reason why there is a stigma related to staying in a psychiatric unit is because there may be coercion involved when staying at a psychiatric unit. Some individuals are in psychiatric units voluntarily. Some are not. Law abiding individuals who want to leave a psychiatric unit, but are not allowed to are effectively having their human rights abused. I think this is part of what fuels s...
Self serve advertising is when individuals and organizations can log into websites and apps and purchase advertising that will be shown to users of such sites and apps, and this can be done without having to wait (in any significant way) on any response from any human agent in order for the ads to be served to users. This is dedicated to learning, teaching, and researching about self serve adve...
Is there a burden on society to “protect” adults who are planning to end their own life on Earth? That burden is manufactured and morally deficient. That burden probably ultimately prevents us from actually reducing suicides, and probably worsens suicide rates since suicide prohibitions make it not possible for many individuals to talk about suicide openly and honestly with any potential helpers i...
