The best way to advance human life extension is to spread information and knowledge about its feasibility and desirability. Numerous heroic scientists are currently working on many fronts to extend our lifespans – but they need support from the general culture and population to make this happen. This is where all of us come in. We must all acquaint ourselves with this greatest of all challenges (and greatest of all rewards) for human beings to pursue. We must all become intellectually equipped to wage war against the greatest of all enemies – the death sentence that afflicts us all.

To achieve this broader enlightenment about the prospects for indefinite life extension, Mr. Stolyarov has compiled an array of educational resources: from articles and encyclopedia entries to videos, art, music, and more. While an abundance of information about indefinite life extension exists on the Internet, it helps to have a way of navigating it concisely and conveniently. This simple page of links will take you to a variety of sources and authors that offer excellent explanations of both the scientific and the philosophical aspects of the greatest human aspiration of all.

NOTE: This page is intended as continual work in progress. New links will be added as they are discovered and as time permits. While this compilation of resources is intended to be broad and diverse, it will probably never be comprehensive or all-encompassing. Mr. Stolyarov welcomes and encourages suggestions from readers as to new content that could be linked. Since linking is a fair use of any materials on the Internet – including copyrighted materials – Mr. Stolyarov will consider for inclusion any content that is germane to indefinite life extension and offers an interesting and valuable contribution to any of its aspects. To recommend content for this compilation, please e-mail Mr. Stolyarov at gennadystolyarovii@yahoo.com
