Age-Old Origins

Seedling-of-Two-Thoughts

We trace our scientific origins to two little-known but seminal moments in exotic biolog:

 

“In [Sardinia] certain people were said to sleep among the Heroes, i.e., among the gods. … These persons, returning to themselves, were not aware of the time which elapsed while they were thus absorbed; because that first instant in which they began to sleep they joined to the instant in which they awoke as if it were one instant – but the time that elapsed escaped them.” – Thomas Aquinas, Commentary on Aristotle's Physics (c. 1270)


... life ... is prolonged by means of cold ... a fact which deserves particular attention."

- Jan Swammerdam, The Book of Nature (1673-80)


... a paradox because cold can just as readily, easily, extinguish life. Together, these two early observations speak volumes about the metabolic life-equation & the latent human biological potential. 

The Great Leap of Imagination

Aquinas' & Swammerdam's observations were followed-up by the keen eye of a certain Monsieur Réne A.-F. de Réaumur, in Paris, France., in 1736. De Réaumur was the first to corner & catch nature in the act of tinkering, more like tampering, with life's metabolic dimmer-switch. The aim, to give the metabolic machinery a well deserved & more-than-skin-deep time-out, a spring clean: a deep systems cleanse, a detox, a defrag. In short, timely repairs & maybe even a makeover. Already then, it was understood that some organisms could realize longer & better quality lives, as well as skip over those less interesting or just plainly too hard metabolic times that come to pass in certain seasons. 

Timeless Universal Laws of Survival

Human animalesque bio-enhancement tech know-how existed well before the dawn of Western science, & so we trace our history much, much further back, to yonks & the Dreamtime, to c. 50,000 years ago & the beginning of a most special time, the formulation of systematic body of esoteric knowledge on how to live harmoniously in the world & a time in which fundamental & timeless laws of universal survival, & gateway to "everywhere", were formulated.
