Future News and Interview with Attorney Douglas Gillies on the Future of Law

Listen Now to the Dr. Future Show 9.16.14

Mrs. Future and I share our thoughts and feelings of Bliss Camp 2014 and talk to one of the artist musicians, Hannah Thiem, from last weekend’s musical tribal event at the beautiful Camp Navarro, in sunny Mendocino County.  It’s a big week for Mars Exploration as two spacecraft approach the Red Planet.

We then spend most of the show talking with visionary attorney Douglas Gillies about the future of the legal profession, as we hurtle in a new world of rapidly changing boundaries and needs.  Douglas speaks  as a biographer of UN pioneer Robert Mueller.  Assistant Secretary-General for 40 years, his ideas about world government, world peace and spirituality led to the increased representation of religions in the UN, especially of New Age Movement. He was known by some as “the philosopher of the United Nations.”

Douglas speaks of the transition from competition to collaboration as we move to a global world view and his efforts to educate  businessmen, lawyers, and other professionals in creating such win/win scenarios.

News - Samsung VR, Secret Google Drones, Mysterious Nationwide Cell Towers, UAV UFOs, Laser Canon, Apple's latest Creations 

Lots of very mysterious news this week, with secret drones and mysterious cell towers, but the big news comes from Apple, with their new iphones, the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, and the groundbreaking Apple Watch.  For the second half of the show we have Apple tracker and afficiado Taylor Barcroft to help us take a closer look at these new offers from Amercia’s favorite tech company.

The Futures appear on KSCO's Morning Show with Rosie, demoing and chatting about robots, thermal cameras, Glass, and singing "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life."

Listen Now to the Futures on KSCO’s “Good Morning Monterey!” with Rosemary Chalmers

We had a fun morning in the KSCO studios, chatting about robots with Rosie, who has been exploring the topic all month with the morning commute traffic audience.  Now it’s our turn.  We brought to the studio some fun toys, including the personable smart phone driven RoboMe, a FLIR infrared imager camera for the iPhone, and Google Glass.  Hulu, the station dog, was a bit wary of the robot, and took a pretty mean thermal image with the FLIR iPhone attachment!

And because we were the last guests of the week on the “Good Morning Monterey!”  we were recruited  to sing the Mony Python song, “Always Look at the Bright Side of Life!” with the KSCO staff as our signoff.  Enjoy!

A Dr. Future Show Report from the Rejuvenation Biotech Conference in Silicon Valley by MIHAI

The SENS Research Foundation’s flagship Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference: Emerging Regenerative Medicine Solutions for the Diseases of Aging took place Aug. 21 – 23 in Santa Clara, bringing together leaders from the Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular, cancer, and other age-related disease communities to discuss preventative and combinatorial strategies to address the diseases of old age (the SENS acronym stands for Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence; senescence is the progressive slide into sickness and frailty with age). The goal is to expedite the development of truly effective therapies to postpone and treat human aging by tackling it as an engineering problem.

One of the highlights was Saturday’s rousing keynote speech by Peter Diamandis, MD, founder of the X-Prize (http://www.xprize.org/) and co-founder of Singularity University, along with Ray Kurzweil. Even diehard skeptics would have to agree with Dr. Future that Dr. Diamandis’ grand ambitions to make the impossible possible are worthy of support. His strong commitment to anti-aging science led to the recent launch of Human Longevity, Inc. - his joint venture with human genome pioneer Craig Ventner, Ph.D. and Robert Hariri, MD, Ph.D. The San Diego-based company is using its initial 70 million in capitalization to build the largest human sequencing operation in the world to compile the most comprehensive and complete human genotype, microbiome, and phenotype database available to tackle the diseases associated with aging-related human biological decline. They are also leading the development of cell-based therapeutics to address age-related decline (http://www.humanlongevity.com/). 

The San Francisco Bay area’s vital contributions to the field were represented by researchers associated with UC Berkeley, UCSF, Singularity University, and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. UC Berkeley Professor David Schaffer’s presentation on his group’s work with gene therapy for regeneration conveyed the profoundly transformative potential of these approaches.

Also in attendance were iconic figures Aubrey De Grey, Ph.D. founder and Chief Science Officer of SENS, and George Church, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical Schooland Director of PersonalGenomes.org. SENS has previously organized six biennial conferences in Cambridge, UK, and this was their first US conference. Truly an inspiring launch, and we are already looking forward to next year’s journey into the future of regenerative medicine, a science likely to impact most of us in significant ways. We also plan on inviting one or more of this year’s participants to visit us on this show, so stay tuned.

The Dr. Future Interview - Better than Sex ~ A New Book by Awakening Coach Founder Arjuna Ardagh

Listen Now to Arjuna Ardagh

Even more than usual, our species is hurtling into the future on the brink of mass planetary destruction or some kind of mass planetary flowering or awakening.   Coming from the later camp, we introduce you to Awakening Coach founder Arjuna Ardagh, who believes that through the proper wielding of some very powerful mind tools, we can awaken into a life of personal empowerment, living the dream of being a self-actualized human.   

In this hour we speak with him about his enlightenment process, of asking core questions of yourself, like “What is my deepest longing?” in the search for discovering who we REALLY are.  Tired of being a bit player in someone else’s movie when you can be starring in your own feature?  Leave that old patricarchal world behind and check out this new paradigm of inspired certainty, of living what til now was just a dream.
