We have been hard at work advocating, writing and supporting the development of life extension technologies, or as we call them, rejuvenation biotechnologies. During the course of our activities, we have found that many people new to the topic have lots of questions and are naturally curious about the science behind it.

As great as giving talks at events and shows about life extension is, nothing beats talking to people one-on-one so that they can share with us any concerns they may have, or ask questions that might be on their mind.

A place to be among like-minded people

Since we began we have been very keen to interact with people on a personal basis and foster an active and engaged community. To that end, we decided to create a life extension discord community where our fellow supporters of rejuvenation technologies and all people interested in science can meet and get to know each other. To us, this is also a place where we can be among like-minded people and rest from that constant pressure of a mainstream culture that life extension supporters often have to bear with.

We had already been using Discord operationally to coordinate LEAF/Lifespan.io activities (and it is great!), as well as in our personal lives for video gaming, so we knew it was a solid platform. With the recent introduction of video chat adding to the wealth of supported features it made sense to make Discord the home of life extension discussion. You can find our Discord life extension server here, and you are welcome to join us!

We have regular discussions about rejuvenation biotechnology, gerontology, aging, longevity, life extension, radical life extension, immortalism, how to extend our own healthspan, what geroprotectors to take, and other related topics. Yes, there are no restrictions on your ambitions or your desire to learn, we talk about all kinds of things that you might wish to discuss (including policies but not politics!) there. We are also planning some cool live events in the future too.

A place to get more involved

As well as discussion and events there is also the opportunity to get involved and join in with our activities and even become a volunteer. We sometimes post our “10 minutes to help Lifespan” activities that anyone can help with. If you are interested in taking a more active role in advocating for science while also acquiring new skills and testing your capacities in a new field, the friendly atmosphere on our Discord life extension server will help you begin.

We also share our views with our Discord community on the best approaches to engage and inform those new to the topic, discussing ways to speak with people about the typical concerns related to longer lives, from immortal dictators to overpopulation, and issues with human rights.

These tips might make your life a bit easier and could help you turn your friends into supporters. We believe that the more minds that are engaged in finding the path to healthy longevity for all, the better, and we are here to support you!

The Discord life extension server is the ideal place to introduce yourself, get to know the LEAF team and see how you might like to get involved, so what are you waiting for? Come and join us today!
