Theme: Bryan Johnson’s Blueprint
Date/Time: Aug 20 @ 4:30 PM
On the surface, Blueprint may seem something about health, wellness and aging. It’s really a system to make tomorrow better for you, me, the planet and our shared future with AI.
Blueprint was born after feeling helpless to stop myself from overeating to soothe the pains of life. Despite my successes: raising three kids and selling my business Braintree Venmo for $800 million; when 7pm rolled around, there was nothing I could do to stop myself from engaging in this self destructive behavior.
I had a Goal Alignment problem within Self. Evening Bryan was causing chaos, disrupting sleep, and ruining life for all other Bryans. Playfully, one day, I revoked Evening Bryan’s decision making authority to eat food.
Now, my body’s 70+ organs speak for themselves, through hundreds of measurements (blood, saliva, stool, fitness tests, and imaging), communicating what they need to be optimal. Freeing myself from the moment to moment chaos of my mind – and opting into a superior system of data + science – has been the most liberating experience of my life.
Now, I feel happier, more alive and fulfilled than any time before. I am nicer to those around me, no longer irritable and my mind is clear. It made me wonder: instead of pointing at others and demanding change, could the societal and planetary change we desire start by changing ourselves from within? Weirdly, could the future of being human start by eating our vegetables and stopping self destructive behaviors?
We all feel it: things aren’t quite right in the world. What’s our plan? Blueprint is the baby step in that direction.
