    Politics, a Charitable Endeavor for Successful Individuals 

    I’m a fan of the answer below.
    Johnson: “What was your greatest reservation saying yes?” Rex Tillerson: “Senator when I went through all of the analysis, all of the reasons for saying no, which was your question were all selfish reasons so I had no reason to say no” – Rex Tillerson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaM2QKpwY7I
    Also, I’m a fan of Rex Tillerson’s skills in diplomacy and building a friendship with potential partners.

    Consciousness 

    Questions:

    • Can consciousness be backed up?
    • Can it be transmitted?
    • Can it be preserved?
    • How can it be modelled/mapped?
    • How can it be duplicated?
    • If someone is frozen and survives upon being unfrozen, what is their consciousness like (eg. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/frozen-man-revived-brink-death-found-snow-pulse/story?id=36380318)

    Approaches to Keep a Healthy Body 

    What is the most promising method to replace all organs in the body?

    a) Is it to use gene editing in combination with stem cells (eg. http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/46810/title/Using-CRISPR-to-Edit-Genes-in-Induced-Pluripotent-Stem-Cells/) to rejuvenate all organs or b) is simply harvesting new organs through a backup body and replacing them all periodically the better approach. c) combine human body parts with non human body parts to maximize lifespan (eg. use synthetic hearts, lungs, livers etc)

    I think the likely best long term approach might be c).

    However, the major challenge is preserving the brain, which would need to be backed up and perfectly copied to ensure the person was the “same”

    Why are Priorities Not Followed? 

    It appears that many people are unwilling to drop out, “cancel plans” or make sacrifices in order to focus on solving major problems. It appears like inertia.

    I think it’s useful to make change a habit to progress/move forward.

    Get in the habit of change.
