About Nicola Bagalà

Nicola is a bit of a jack of all trades—a holder of an M.Sc. in mathematics; an amateur programmer; a hobbyist at novel writing, piano and art; and, of course, a passionate life extensionist. After his interest in the science of undoing aging arose in 2011, he gradually shifted from quiet supporter to active advocate in 2015, first launching his advocacy blog Rejuvenaction before eventually joining LEAF. These years in the field sparked an interest in molecular biology, which he actively studies. Other subjects he loves to discuss to no end are cosmology, artificial intelligence, and many others—far too many for a currently normal lifespan, which is one of the reasons he’s into life extension.

With February behind us and spring approaching, it is again time to look back at the highlights in the field of aging research and rejuvenation during the past month. LEAF news Team and activities LEAF to host second webinar: Following our first very well-received webinar, which saw the participation of around 30 people, we’re going…

When debating life extension, or debating in general, it may happen that participants commit logical fallacies—that is, their arguments contain logically invalid reasoning. In practice, this often means that people incorrectly come to certain conclusions that do not actually follow from the premises; if they appear to follow, it’s indeed because fallacious reasoning was used….

(Death is in the “cryonics patients” section of his collection, a temporary exhibition, in the company of a young woman. They are sitting at a chess table, surrounded by the frozen display cases of the rest of the patients.) — That was a real nasty move, Miss Colomar. — If I really must play, I…

(The intercom buzzes in Death’s office.) — Mr. Death, sir, Mr. Flores is here. — (Slightly surprised, Death takes a look at his wrist hourglass.) Already? I wasn’t expecting him so early. Well, let him in anyway, Miss Coffins. (Miss Coffins shows Mr. Flores in. He cautiously looks around, confused.) — Ah, Mr. Flores! Welcome….

Many people are at the very least iffy about the idea of extending human healthy lifespan through medical biotechnologies that prevent age-related diseases essentially by rejuvenating the body. Even people who accept the possibility that such therapies can be developed are not convinced that developing them is a good idea, and there are only a…

The intercom in Death’s office buzzes. With a slightly frustrated sigh, Death lifts his skeletal head from the newspapers he was reading, takes a puff of his cigar, stretches out a little, and presses a button on the intercom. — I swear, all this work is going to kill me one day. I said I…

I would like to share a story about an encounter I had a couple of years back, when I was nearing the end of my university studies. At the time, I lived in a student apartment pretty much on the outskirts of Helsinki, Finland. Like most of Finland, this area is beautiful and brimming with…

As the new year begins, we approach one of the most awaited life extension events of 2019: the Undoing Aging conference. Starting off with a success The Undoing Aging conference series started off in 2018, with the first being held in Berlin, Germany, in mid-March. Especially when you consider that UA2018 was the inaugural event…

Imagine this scene: you, a life extension supporter, are with a group of people talking about this and that, and, at one point, the opportunity to mention life extension presents itself. You expect people to react to it with “Yay! Longer life in good health! No more aging!” but reality doesn’t quite match up to…
