We are on the path to immortality. Hydrogen sulfide may makes us all immortal. Mark Roth gives a great lecture on suspended animation and the potential uses of such research. The practices are currently being used in human subjects right now!

I find multiple lectures each week that are brilliant, thought provoking, and extremely empowering. If you are not familiar with TED talks, browse through their video selection and sample a few. They may change your life.

I would love to know what you think of TED talks; have you seen any good lectures? Do you enjoy the content? Who else would you like to see giving 20 minute lectures?
