The Human Memome Project
|Presented By||The Human Memome Project|
|Goal||Explore possible correlations between human memes and lifespan.|
|Task||Complete an online survey about your memes.|
We want to be able to find correlations between people's ideas, behaviours and aspirations (all of which we are calling memes) and their health, wellbeing and lifespan.
If we can find ideas, memes, behaviours and aspirations that could potentially increase health, wellbeing and lifespan we use this data to create an academic dataset, educational tools and further citizen science and quantified self practices.
We are not just interested in finding associations with increasing average lifespan, or reaching the current maximum lifespan, but finding ideas and behaviours that may be correlated with increasing maximum lifespan as well as maintaining mutual health and wellbeing.
The dataset will be analysed using inter-disciplinary methods including linguistics, bioinformatics, omics, statistics, machine learning, computational modelling, memetics.
We would like to get at least 1000 participants, and many ideas, behaviours and aspirations per person.
I am a PhD student who has so far funded this project personally to following my passions (longevity science, science outreach and empowering people to be healthy, happy and long lived). I would really appreciate if you could take part and share this project with your friends and family.
What we think and do effects how long we will live and could potentially live - let us work together to find the best thoughts and actions to create a better world!
