Summer Celebration 2015 – A radical life extension/physical immortality feast to remember

The People Unlimited Summer Celebration, held in Telluride, Colorado was a feast of radical life extension and physical immortality inspiration, information and fun. Led by directors James Strole and Bernadeane, we went deeper and deeper each day of this weeklong event in exploring the lifestyle of living forever.

We were delighted to have People Unlimited member, Dr. Bill Andrews, one of the leading scientists of radical life extension, and a pioneer in the research of aging speak on his over 20 years work in the study of telomeres. Bill’s thesis that finding a way to stop the telomeres from shortening is a key to curing aging has gained considerable acceptance, and through his lab at Sierra Sciences, he is leading the charge to discover the answers. The insight and passion of Bill’s presentation was a true highlight.

People Unlimited member Otto Siegel, biologist by training, gave an excellent presentation on integrating the gut feeling of eternal living with the scientific facts that support our most basic belief that the human body can, indeed, live forever. He zeroed in on the importance of community and environment, citing the example of importance of physical touch from a young age, and how it is essential in creating adults who are healthier and happier.

People Unlimited 5k hosted by Run From Anywhere

Molly Sheridan, ultra marathoner, challenged us all to think about: how far can we go? For an audience committed to physical immorality, it was exactly the right question to ask. In her dynamic and heart-warming presentation, she shared how she evolved into an ultra marathoner, which began after the age of the fifty, proving to herself and all who know her that the potential of the human body is greater than we may think.

Trainer Ilana Arzt, owner of Enerjoy fitness gym in Scottsdale, and a member of People unlimited, spoke on the ability to constantly improve our health and fitness via exercise and physical movement at any age. She emphasized the importance of listening to the needs of your body and pointed out the fallacies of the “no pain, no gain” workout mentality. She detailed the virtues of a workout strategy that is truly designed for living forever, steering clear of over-exertion and injury, and of course, laziness and complacency.

We also had the pleasure of hearing Michael Greve, founder of "Forever Healthy", based in Berlin, Germany, talk about his holistic strategy for actually achieving the present life expectancy limit of 120 years, and going beyond it. Michael’s presentation was refreshingly practical and informative in sharing his comprehensive thinking on how to live long enough to live forever.

Speakers Molly Sheridan, Dr. Bill Andrews, and Ilana Arzt. Performances by Ori Brown, and group West of Berlin.

People Unlimited member, Laurie Handlers, Tantra teacher and intimacy coach, spoke on the topic of Ageless Sex, addressing the connection between sexual activity and bodily health, as well as challenging the cultural norms that view sex through the lens of age discrimination. Not surprisingly, a lively Q&A session followed.

Nutritionist Christi Christiaens, People unlimited member, spoke on nutrition and succeed in providing a clear framework for eating that supports radical life extension and physical immortality, without getting bogged down in the numerous dietary orthodoxies currently popular that tend to degrade such conversations into narrow rights and wrongs. Christi provided excellent insight and information that everyone could use to make smarter decisions on eating.

It should be noted that the performances were the best ever. These included music, singing and dancing that ranged from electronica to Latin to rock and blues. Music and performance play a significant role in People Unlimited’s on-going mission of crafting a complete culture that supports radical life extension and physical immortality. The party, DJed by Kevin Brown, was a blast, as immortals once again showed they know how to have a great time living forever.

Our next week-long special event is the New Year's Launch, December 26th-31st. For more info, and to register, go HERE.

People Unlimited Summer Celebration on physical immortality and radical life extension

The People Unlimited Summer Celebration on physical Immortality and radical life extension was held this year in beautiful Telluride, Colorado. I was very excited to leave 110 degrees of desert heat and drive to the cool clear mountains to immerse myself for a week with 100+ like-minded individuals all gathered for the same purpose of focusing on radical life extension and physical immortality. There is a unique magic that happens when that many dedicated people leave their daily routines for a week to focus solely on the celebration of unlimited living, but I can tell you for sure that I left there transformed, refreshed, inspired and overflowing, as did everyone else who attended. So much happened during the week but there were definite highlights for me. It began with the opening night entertainment by Kevin Brown and company. This was an exciting multi-media production of live music, electronic music and dance, intermixed with visual images on screen of various prominent or famous individuals with their quotes about radical life extension and/or physical immortality. There were quotes dating back as far as Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln and as current as Ray Kurzweil, Woody Allen and Bruce Willis, to name a few. It was very touching to me to feel these hearts. I loved Kevin's passion to present inspiration from many sources to open our event; it was really beautiful and an expansive beginning.

Actually, the daily entertainment throughout the week was outstanding and a highlight in itself. So much variety was offered, truly food for the soul; from rocking it out with the band, to Latin rhythms, belly dancing, lyrical dance, show dance, inspirational singing, as well as an amazing performance of strength and power of the human body by Ilana and Dimitri that brought me to tears.

Dr. Bill Andrews People UnlimitedThe events themselves were also rich in variety and expansiveness, with much emphasis on scientific and physical intelligence content. This is where our physical immortality has led us today - deep into the physical realm. I am excited by the explosion of scientific progress in the field of radical life extension today. I particularly enjoyed hearing the presentations from our visiting scientists, feeling their passion for their subjects and their joy at having such wonderful feedback and communication from wide-open people instead of closed minds in the audience. It was really nourishing to see Michael Greve, Bill Andrews and Molly Sheridan blossom in the warmth of our welcome and to hear their expressions when they left us filled up and enriched from the connection.

People Unlimited Summer CelebrationMolly was such a beautiful woman, so generous and enthusiastic - I was inspired by her story of starting from nowhere to become the most successful female ultra marathon runner in the world just because she wanted to see how far she could go! What a gift she brought to our midst, truly an unlimited body, and I was very touched by her passion to inspire people to have fun moving. The morning of the 5K was special for me because of all of us doing it together. I didn't run, I walked, but felt wonderful being in the flow with my group, and the time went by really fast until I received my medal at the end, feeling like I had accomplished something great!

If I could sum up the whole week and how it transformed me I would have to say it was being in a flow with others. I experienced more joy of intimacy in that week than in all my life before. I felt an ease of opening to the unknown in the presence of my own kind that was so relaxing. I truly felt unlimited, maybe for the first time ever in such a physical way. I felt I was part of an organic biological flow. People Unlimited James Strole BernadeaneIt was palpable to me, like a pulsating organ, a blood flow, a heartbeat of us,that we were one and there was a power of us that could achieve anything - we could heal, we could create, we could expand. I experienced that whatever we would focus on it would come about. And with that feeling came a call from Jim Strole that I heard loud and clear in a new way. He asked us - where is our urgency? I realized that if we could do anything then we needed to do something really big. Why be small when you can be big? Why settle for mediocre when you can change the world?

I realized our physical immortality comes from our being together. It is a by-product of a connected life, not something we aspire to as a lone identity. That is an illusion of the mind. We can't escape the reality of flesh and blood, touch, responsibility, accountability, physicality and change. Physical immortality is not a social revolution, it is a biological revolution. We can't fake being alive and we can't bypass each other. Science may have answers to radical life extension in terms of greater health for the body and ending the scourge of human aging, suffering and disease, but the human being is still incredibly creative and will no doubt continue to find ways to die if we do not open our hearts to one another and remove the sentence of death. To find the courage to search our souls and open to a touch that comes only from another person is our genius at People Unlimited and our unique contribution to the coalition for radical life extension.

I took on who I am in Telluride. I finally received myself. I moved, gave my passion, let my love and wisdom flow and was built in return. My people raised me "so high I can see forever" as Bernie so beautifully expresses, and I am left with a loud call from the deep of me to move with Bernie and Jim to create a future of freedom and joy for all who can live it.

Lorna.

Stand Up for Unlimited Life

Stand up for unlimited life by Joe Bardin, James Strole and Bernadeane.

The Coalition for Radical Life Extension is rallying like-minded people to come together to stand up for unlimited life. We have different views on what that looks like, and even what to call it. People Unlimited calls it physical immortality.Pioneer telomere researcher Dr. Bill Andrews calls it curing aging. Transhumanist Max More prefers super longevity. But what we all agree on is that the deathist paradigm has to go; it’s time to look beyond the past of dying to a future of unlimited living.

Immortality - People Unlimited - Unlimited life

Vigorous debate is a feature of most revolutions, and undoubtedly has its place in ours. But it’s vital that we don’t allow disagreements on the details to stop us from uniting on our fundamental purpose. While passionate revolutionaries dissipate their energy over the dispute of ideological fine points, the dictatorship of death continues. Separation has always played into the hands of old guard, reactionary forces. We have to be sure we come together and stay together to keep our eyes on the prize. We are overthrowing the reign of death, and when that is achieved, it’s difficult to imagine how any of us will care what we called “it” along the way.

We have all been conditioned by an often disinterested, and at time highly critical general public to parse every syllable we express, searching for what is so objectionable about ending death. Like any minority group, we have sought to minimize our distinction, and translate ourselves into terms more readily acceptable, even at the expense of our true spirit and ambitions. We’ve been driven underground in plain sight. And even so, little real headway has been made towards mainstream acceptability.

Now the Coalition is calling for an end to this self-censorship. We will no longer define ourselves by our critics, and will speak out for who we are. We are not  pursuing controversy for its own sake, and will be thoughtful and purposeful in our communications. At the same time, we are not concerned with disturbing or alienating a mainstream audience that isn’t ready for us anyway. And may never be. As we progress, we may well find that in fact we are not changing the world; we are initiating a new one. Time will tell.

Our purpose is neither to confront nor to appease a death oriented society. We are putting out a call to all those who are already interested in unlimited life to come together. If death could have been ended by individuals on their own, it would have happened a long time ago. A new society is needed to support a new way of life. In this new deathless society, our differences are secondary to our primary agreement that unlimited life is our true destiny and that the time to live it is now.

Our first major initiative will be our festival, to be held in 2016. We’re excited about the festival, and have a strategy for making it a significant success. However, we won’t be stopped by lower than expected results. Our mission to end death is the ultimate long-term commitment. In this way, we’ve taken failure out of the equation. We are all-in for as long as it takes, whatever it takes.

Neal Vanderee to Speak at People Unlimited

People Unlimited's Leaders of Radical Life Extension speaker series features Neal Vanderee of the science-based Church of Perpetual Life

Neal Vanderee - People Unlimited

People Unlimited's Leaders of Radical Life Extension speaker series continues in April with Neal Vanderee, who directs the science-based Church of Perpetual Life. The Church of Perpetual Life is the world’s first brick & mortar Transhumanist Church.

“My beliefs are that the human species can stop and reverse the aging process,” says Vanderee. “I view it as a disease that we can cure and believe this will come to pass within our life time. The sooner we get this done, the more lives will be saved.”

Vanderee assisted Aubrey De Grey in organizing the Understanding Aging Conference in 2008 in Los Angeles. In 2012, he met Bill Faloon of Life Extension and began to assist with the creation of the Church of Perpetual Life, which had its first service in November of 2013. The church unites like-minded people to teach scientific rationality along with the Creator’s plan for mankind to develop technologies that will facilitate the transformation of life into an environment of perpetual duration. A founding tenant of this church is that indefinitely extended healthy lifespans are not only desirable and attainable, but what the Creator planned for humanity to accomplish.

Also, a reminder, that in May, Natasha Vita-Moore, PhD will be our feature speaker. And in June, Aubrey De Grey will round out our speaker series, leading up to our Summer Celebration in Telluride, CO in July.

People Unlimited leadership is alive and well

People Unlimited leadership is alive and well

James Strole and Bernadeane. People UnlimitedInaccurate media reporting has left some confused regarding the leadership of People Unlimited. People Unlimited was founded in 1996 by James Strole and Bernadeane who are its directors and day-to-day leaders today. Those who attend People Unlimited events, either in person or via live online streaming, know that Jim and Bernie are very much in charge, engaged and on point. In fact, there’s a broad consensus that their work is more focused, potent and impactful than ever.

While the loss of Charles Brown was a painful one, it made no direct impact on the leadership of People Unlimited. Chuck had been ill for many years and unable to contribute in a meaningful way. Additionally, Charles was never a director of People Unlimited. He had co-founded, along with Jim and Bernie, People Forever. However disagreements Jim and Bernie had with Chuck, led to the dissolution of People Forever and motivated Jim and Bernie to create People Unlimited. While any personal enmity between them had long ago passed, it’s fair to say that those fundamental differences in outlook remained.

Today, under the able leadership of Jim and Bernie, People Unlimited is continuing to provide its on-going program of inspiration, insight and encouragement for unlimited living, radical life extension and physical immortality. Their vision is broader and more encompassing than ever, galvanizing more and more people interested in deathless living to connect, explore and expand this new paradigm.

Charles Paul Brown

Charles Paul Brown

1935 – 2014

Charles Brown

 “Man’s true nature and true heritage is to be physically immortal.”

People Unlimited and the growing global community of immortalists has lost a great advocate in the person of Charles Paul Brown. For over four decades, Charles spoke and wrote on the subject of physical immortality with singular passion and eloquence. Before longevity had even entered the mainstream jargon, Charles was declaring that the time is now to shrug off our old deathist ways and embrace a new and unlimited potential for the human species.

Declaring that immortality was the true destiny of mankind, Charles exhibited a deep commitment to his conscience in refusing to dilute his message even in the face of withering reactionary response. On the Larry King Show in 1991, he artfully dueled over scripture with Reverend Jerry Falwell, showing that death is not sanctioned by the Bible, and in fact, is revealed to be “the last enemy.” At the end of the show, Larry King told him: “I hope you’re right.

It was his great purpose in life to help overcome the superstition and ignorance that have traditionally blocked a deeper communication and more whole-hearted embracing of our immortal potential. He was the great grandson of the famous abolitionist John Brown. Just as John Brown had dedicated his life to ending the slavery of African Americans, Chuck was committed to breaking the slavery of death.

He spoke in 26 countries on four continents and touched the lives of thousands. Along with James Strole and Bernadeane, he founded the first dedicated community of immortals that has evolved into People Unlimited today.

Those of us who knew Chuck personally knew him to be a man of great power and tenderness. He touched us with his beautiful singing and had a true entertainer’s sparkle. We also knew that he struggled with receiving his own words and living his own inspiration. While the ideas of immortality burned brightly within him, the living of it often eluded him. Too much stress and not enough exercise undoubtedly contributed to the heart disease and Parkinson’s from which he suffered.

As anyone who has grieved for a loved one knows, the explanations hardly mitigate the loss. Rather, to honor his memory, we re-dedicate ourselves to living the life he envisioned and so compellingly spoke of to so many – a life free of death.

Is James Strole the Most Positive Man On the Planet?

James Strole. The Most Positive Man in The World. www.peopleunlimitedinc.com I’ll say it plain and simple: James Strole is the most positive man on the planet.  As my friend and mentor, Jim talks about and demonstrates the human body’s innate ability to transcend all limitations of sickness, aging, and yes, even death. In my humble estimation, Jim walks his talk like no one I’ve ever known.

We all have our own take on being "positive", and we are all familiar with positive thinking, but in the case of this most positive man, I’m speaking of something way beyond positive mentality. Jim Strole is passionately, boundlessly and physically positive.

“The body wants to live, it’s not a mindset!”  (JS)

Positive thinking, on the other hand, is nothing new, tracing it’s roots back to the middle 1800’s as the so-called “mind power” movement in Massachusetts and Maine. During the Great Depression, the “prosperity gospel” became part of this mindset of health and hope.  Some of the names involved during this time are now well known: Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Norman Vincent Peale.  Ronald Reagan was friends with many of these pioneer thinkers and introduced positive thinking to the political arena, where it is still practiced today.

As television came of age, the movement continued to transform with entrepreneurs and evangelists taking advantage of instant connection with millions.  Nowadays, we have Dr. Phil and Oprah Winfrey to tell us how we can think better and live better.

“You didn’t come here to be led, you came here to be bigger.” (JS)

If there is one thing that we can generally say about all these illustrious teachers (well, maybe two things), it is that they teach very specific methods and goals that one can eventually attain; and secondly,  it is best to achieve these goals before we die.

“If you aren’t good enough now to live forever, you never will be.” (JS)

This is where Jim Strole makes a radical departure from his contemporaries in the field of positivity.  How would your life change, he asks, if you were no longer obligated to die?  What sense does it make to go through all the torments and blessings of a human life, accumulate a lot of toys and knowledge, and then die, just when you’re beginning to get a notion of how precious your human body is?

“Let’s experience the beauty of being alive without the darkness to have to remind us.”  (JS)

Instead of preparing for eventual death and reincarnation in some so-called better place, Jim’s entire adult life has been a constant movement of expanding and deepening into his own physical form — what he calls the “flesh”. No flesh, no Spirit. No Spirit, no life.

“If we don’t value our bodies more than anything, 
I think we’re really missing what living is all about.” (JS)

The ultimate valuing of our flesh, says Jim, is the discovery that we are all worthy to live, forever!  Think about this (or rather, feel into it.)   What greater self-esteem could there possibly be?  Co-incidentally, the more we value our own life, the more valuable every other life is!  Love thy neighbor as thyself, indeed.

“Take it on that you’re physically immortal now. It's not about being perfect or good enough. It’s about being passionate and alive. It’s about joy and pleasure, and a flow with people who flow with you" (JS)

For arousing the feeling in my heart that separation and war are already over with this valuing of the body, Jim is not only my hero, he is also the most positive man on the planet!

“Physical immortality is about people really wanting to take responsibility for being on the planet, they're not just passing through. They're ready to clean up the mess now and not leave it to somebody else when they die.” (JS)

And for taking a stand for Life, attracting people from all over the world who I now call my friends, and for shining a light into my own darkness of doubt and negativity, James Strole is not only the most positive man on the planet, he is my hero.

"When you’re free from the slavery of death,  you don’t want anybody else to be bound up.  That’s why  immortality is the total answer to peace on this planet.  People stop killing each other because of the value that is created in one another’s flesh."  (JS)

Your natural clock can affect your lifespan.

Did you know the internal circadian clock, our body's natural clock, can affect lifespan? A presentation by Marina Antoch, Ph.D., Roswell Park Cancer Institute, during the 43rd Annual Meeting of the American Aging Association (AGE) held May 30-June 2, 2014, presented the mechanistic link between the internal circadian clock, chronic inflammation and aging. Complete understanding of this functional interconnection is critically important for developing therapeutic and preventive strategies to treat age-related pathologies, said Dr. Antoch.

Our circadian clock, does not only affect our sleep cycles, but also weight, body temperature, hormones and other functions of the body. We live in a driven world, our senses are been (over)stimulated constantly. Paying attention and listening to our physiological needs of sleep and rest, and not operating in a drive, where the body is constantly being pushed, shouldn't be a matter of convenience or vanity.

Being aware of the deeper, long-term effects of a lifestyle that lacks nourishment, not only of food, but rest, peace, and attention, is imperative. Could you then do something small every day, that would help you prevent heart disease at no cost? Be more productive and successful on the long term, have more joy and happiness? Expand your lifespan tremendously by just "listening to your gut"?

When do we stop and take a look?

"Death is a curable disease." James Strole.

The Annual Meeting featured the latest scholarship and research findings in the field of aging research from more than 70 leading experts. The event has long been recognized as a launching pad for researchers to share cutting-edge discoveries into the underlying mechanisms of the causes of aging as well as the possible breakthroughs in finding ways to increase health span.

"The talks at this year's meeting were of exceptionally high quality with really new exciting insights on the role of gut fauna in healthy aging, protein biology, and why our daily rhythms get disrupted during aging and the widespread ramifications thereof in inflammation and biochemical signaling," said Rochelle Buffenstein, Ph.D., president and meeting chair of AGE.

Among the other weekend's highlights were:

  • An in-depth look by Allon Canaan, Ph.D., MSc, Yale School of Medicine, at the newly discovered FAT10 gene and how it might revolutionize the field of aging research.
  • A series of presentations on the role mitochondria, the cellular compartments that generate the vast majority of the energy that fuels daily activities, plays in aging.
  • A presentation by Kenneth B. Storey, F.R.S.C., Carleton University, on why metabolic depression in long-lived turtles leads to an increase in lifespan.

What is living unlimited?

What is living Unlimited? Living unlimited isn't about a life outside us somewhere, It's about people being unlimited together. It's we the people moving unlimited together for the first time. Unlimited movement, unlimited passion, unlimited love, unlimited feelings for one another. Unlimited expansion, unlimited touching, unlimited feeling in our own bodies. Hunger to be an unlimited person. Be so tired of being around limited people. Be so tired of your own limitations!

James Strole. The Most Positive Man in The World.
