A human desire to explore all the frontiers of nature, space and our own biology takes its form in the practice of biohacking.
A lot of individuals get motivated to biohack themselves when they are diagnosed with something that will take their health or their life in a short time. The practice of biohack then becomes a quest to beat the odds and stay alive and healthy, as a challenge to the laws of nature.
Biohacking manipulates one’s brain and body to ‘hack’ it, outside the realm of mainstream science and medicine.
Biohacking, or doing biological activities on oneself, is a broad term and covers stuff like performing ‘Young Blood Transfusion’ or tracking one’s sleep patterns. It took wings from Silicon Valley, where people started broadcasting their intermittent fasting, crazy diets, DNA injecting and the popular dopamine fasting.
Biohacking differs from traditional medicine based on why it is being undertaken. Medicine is to cure a certain ailment, but biohacking may be an experiment to go beyond our bodies and minds shortcomings.
Some people claim that all of modern medicine and cosmetic surgery is primarily biohacking. Most people who try the extravagant and high-tech stuff are trying to break the barriers of human existence, like old age, loss of memory, or death. They see it as a technical problem waiting to be solved.
When people experiment with other people to challenge the limits set by nature, the question of the risks of biohacking arise. Humans have been altering nature since the beginning of time, with animal harvesting and agriculture to name a few examples.
Biohacking may be controversial but its root cause of fear is the fear of the new, the fear of the unknown. Humans have been evolving as fast as they can since thousands of years and new technologies always help in making the transformation and the evolution happen at a faster rate.
It can be described as citizen or do-it-yourself biology. For many, this consists of making small, incremental diet or lifestyle changes to make small improvements in your health and well-being.
It does have some merits, but experimenting on yourself without taking all the proper precautions can lead to unexpected side effects.
We have ways to hack anything nowadays. Neurohacking is a broad term involving the manipulation of brain functions or brain structures to enhance our experience of the world around us.
Neurohacking treats the brain as a piece of hardware that can be upgraded and modified using several mind-blowing techniques!
Fasting means abstinence of some or all food for a period of time.
