The 22-Year-Old Who's Racing Against Death

Jack Jay of Los Angeles, California, has devoted his life to defeating aging and genetic related diseases. He says this change in how he views life has made every single part more magical and meaningful. Jack was at his residence in the Crypto Castle in Beverly Hills when we sat down to hear Jack’s story.

Jay Said “In elementary school, a question I remember being asked multiple times what I would do with one wish, and I was always the smartass to say I would wish for more wishes. With my life, I am doing the same thing. I have one life, and I am going to spend it attempting to multiply it. Not only in length but in quality of many who live in chronic pain from birth, or who never make it past being a teenager for some genetic bug.”

He relayed that he sees life as a racing game. “The checkpoint is uncovering our genetic code’s underlying language, enabling us to edit it effectively. The technology is there. It just requires an understanding of the processor our body uses”.

What are stress levels like every day while viewing every action as being life or death?

“It’s funny you ask that; I did, in fact, burnout at the end of my teens with a lack of progress. I wanted to do a million things at once. I came through that state with a new perspective, which is all too obvious now. I won’t regret not making it, or making enough progress, or doing the wrong thing. The only thing I would regret is not trying. That is the best I can do at the end of the day.”

What made him come to this conclusion of aging being the thing to fight?

“Well, I come from a family of engineers. My brain is optimized for optimization. My parents raised me as Christian, but at a young age, I concluded that I was only Christian because my parents said they were, and my friends were only Muslim because their parents were, and so on. I thought this was a silly way of choosing something so important.  I started looking at optimizing my life. Following stoic philosophy, I asked myself what I knew to be true and what I could do about it. I didn’t know much, and so I went searching to learn more. Access to the internet-enabled interaction with plentiful amounts of people older and wiser than me. I looked into many different religions and life philosophies. For example, Buddhism encouraged detachment from everything, including friends and family. This, to me, was suicide without bodily death. Buddhism displays many great values, as do all religions, and I do not mean to put anyone or any perspective of life down. Rather I am sharing a transparent viewpoint of my perspective and growth into it. No religion ever really made complete sense to me. They were all TOO SURE of what was, and not dynamic to the point of knowing that we simply DON’T know. I took everything I knew and condensed that down to the base principles, which makes up my philosophy and view on life today. The core conclusion is that we will not have all the answers within my lifetime, and thus any conclusion, even acceptance of death, would be subject to being wrong. Thus my entire goal is to fight nature’s planned obsolescence for my consciousness and, along the way, grant humanity an ability to cure all genetic diseases that exist. Completely changing the quality of living for every human on this planet.”

What if he was wrong? What if there is an afterlife or a god?

“I don’t deny the existence of a god or higher power. I follow the principle that if that higher power or God is good, it will base my entrance/acceptance into the afterlife/heaven on my actions, my morals, and how I treat people. If God is evil and only cares how much I worship them, it is not a god worth worshipping in the first place. And hey, maybe that’s a bad idea. Maybe I should bow down to the all-powerful evil God, but that’s not my style.”

How exactly does he plan to attack aging?

“This is no easy answer. It shouldn’t be either. With such a complex system happening with our DNA and such a complex world, there is an incalculable number of factors deciding the optimal path forward. The path that leads to the highest success rate is not as simple as going to college to study biomedical technologies and working in a lab researching. Suppose one wanted to produce as many gummy bears as possible. They should not start making gummy bears right away but build capital to buy the machinery, which will automatically produce gummy bears. When I meet people who believe they could enjoy life for many years and have no religious belief, It does not take long before I can bring the rational conclusion of defeating death into their day-to-day thinking. Now the scale at which people then put this information into action varies greatly, it’s one thing to understand a concept, and it’s another to live by it. It’s still a struggle I fight with myself regularly. I live in a house of entrepreneurs. Half of them understand and agree with my motives, but we are all young, and the current strategy is to nurture their careers before embarking on a larger life quest like defeating aging.

“My transition from work to wisdom is one I look forward to. Currently, the opportunities for currency are grand, which will be spent to help spread the belief system of defeating death. It makes more sense to increase the reach of my words more than to start spewing them.

“Why do I want to spread my words and belief as the main thing I believe will help? Words are like spells. They change the person who hears them. Returning to our metaphor of gummy manufacturing, I am not just going to help in producing gummy manufacturing machines, but I will convince a certain percent of the entire population that making gummy bears is a life and death situation. And I don’t even have to lie to do it. This literally is life and death, and you should be scared for your life. Your operating system doesn’t know how to fear such long-term rot. Survival, when innate fear is driving your legs away from a tiger, is easy. Survival in using your free time to help the world in micro-amount that affects the macro to yourself living in a reality where we defeat aging before you die is a mindful thing.

“I don’t mean you should be scared every second. But the fear can be an excellent motivator when no motivation is to be found. I meditate and imagine my body dying, my memory fading, shitting myself, and having my son have to clean me up, knees failing, being confined to a wheelchair, taking ten prescription drugs, and fading to black. But I’m not scared on a day to day basis. The only thing I would regret is leaving this world without having tried.

“This article may save my life, and if not mine, it will save a certain number of others. This is a bold statement, and I want to break it down because this understanding made me more in tune with how the small actions I take have a large effect on my and humanity’s future.

“This is completely based on the law of averages.

“Imagine a society where every person read this article. I can then state that you and every person on this earth would have a higher average lifespan.

“Our view of the world creates the future of it. Nothing humanity has done has not been believed to be able to be done by someone. It takes someone believing in something for it to even have a chance of happening. This essay is persuasive towards a belief system of longevity and living a life aligned with that goal. On average, it will increase the attention, hope, and drive towards this field. You only need to influence one person to change the world completely, and you only need to influence them one tiny bit. The smallest change now could be the difference between you living in the reality where aging is cured. My plan though, is to create a tsunami by growing a religion for defeating aging. Some people say you will only live in a timeline where that’s the case, this is called Quantum immortality, and while it intrigues me, it’s not something I feel I can entirely rely on.

“It’s a theory that as long as there exists a universe in which you continue living, that you will live in that universe. That means I would essentially have to commit suicide to force a reality where I for sure die. For the believers of Quantum immortality, I propose this. Is complacency or lack of action a form of suicide? My answer is yes. Imagine a man in the middle of an Olympic swimming pool. He is full of energy and can easily make it to safety. If he does not swim, something that requires direct action, but something he can do with ease, he would be committing suicide. If he locks his arms to his side and does not utilize them, he is committing suicide.

“This story is my way of swimming to the edge of the pool, making sure I do my part to live in the reality where I continue to exist here. And hey, it’s not that bad; in fact, it’s hard for me to imagine a better starting point than being one of the people who understood where the world was going and helped the first mortal humans become immortal.

Well, that answer gives a lot to think about and process. The feelings are quite evident from the answers. Thanks for the time.
