So, What’s Aging?
Aging is a shift in our
reality!
So What’s Reality?
Created by Dr. Edward Lakatta, Dr. Harold Spurgeon, and Dr. Victor Maltsev

Reality emerges from a mutually coupled
(enslaved) system of DNA and its
environment

Reality Is A System of Mutually Enslaved DNA and its Environment
Sun, planets, Moon, asteroids, Sputnik
O2, CO2, smoke
Geographic, climate, radiation,
pollutions, gravity
Traditions, Religion,
“Mandates”
Friends, Relatives, Pets,
Plants, Bacteria, Viruses
Soma, Psyche, and emergent
characteristics: Personality,
Cognition, Innate Brain, Behavior,
Lifestyle, Nutrition, Exercise
DNA
Organ-to-organ communication:
Brain-Nerves, Cardiovascular–
circulation, Endocrine-circulating

Extracellular matrix
Organelles, mitochondrial DNA, microRNA
Chromatin, Transcription factors,

SO!
Is Aging, per se,
A Disease?

“Aging and disease
are not
synonymous. There
are processes of
aging and
etiologies of
disease. The
relationship
between the two
are important, but
not inevitable”
Nathan Shock, Ann. Rev.Physiol. 1961

“... to draw a
distinction
between disease
and normal aging
is to attempt to
separate the
undefined from
the undefinable”
J.G. Evans, Research and The Aging Population 1988

So
What’s Reality?
THIS is REALITY!
