Hard work and hard-wired

I am working on a mini-treatise on immunosenescence for this blog – age related decline in immune functioning.  This is a very important topic insofar as longevity is concerned.  It is a knotty topic with a lot to say about it.  So it may take me a day or two more before the next heavy-duty post appears here.  In the meanwhile I am passing on an item my wife sent me proving that we are hard-wired in ways we do not know.  Here is what I got via a chain e-mail:

HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT? You have to try this please,  it takes 2 seconds. I could not believe this!  It is from an orthopedic surgeon............. This will confuse your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can out smart your foot, but, you can't.  It is pre-programmed in your brain!1. While sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right
foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.  2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction. I told you so! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how
stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

Makes me wonder about what other response patterns are hard-wired in my body.

About Vince Giuliano

Being a follower, connoisseur, and interpreter of longevity research is my latest career. I have been at this part-time for well over a decade, and in 2007 this became my mainline activity. In earlier reincarnations of my career. I was founding dean of a graduate school and a university professor at the State University of New York, a senior consultant working in a variety of fields at Arthur D. Little, Inc., Chief Scientist and C00 of Mirror Systems, a software company, and an international Internet consultant. I got off the ground with one of the earliest PhD's from Harvard in a field later to become known as computer science. Because there was no academic field of computer science at the time, to get through I had to qualify myself in hard sciences, so my studies focused heavily on quantum physics. In various ways I contributed to the Computer Revolution starting in the 1950s and the Internet Revolution starting in the late 1980s. I am now engaged in doing the same for The Longevity Revolution. I have published something like 200 books and papers as well as over 430 substantive.entries in this blog, and have enjoyed various periods of notoriety. If you do a Google search on Vincent E. Giuliano, most if not all of the entries on the first few pages that come up will be ones relating to me. I have a general writings site at www.vincegiuliano.com and an extensive site of my art at www.giulianoart.com. Please note that I have recently changed my mailbox to vegiuliano@agingsciences.com.
