If you do appeal to one of these gods for longevity, please let me and the readers of this blog know how it works out.   

If you are interested in some newer longevity-related gods and goddesses, mainly ones to avoid or appease, you can try these: 

1.   Roxxi-Dantiana

Goddess of rust, decay and preservation. Worship her at temples like the Vitamin Shoppe. 

2.   Dnagalurth

Presides over and protects the essence of continuing life.  A very powerful god whose existence has been long concealed. 

3.   Mightykondrian 

God presiding over all energy resources.  You had better pay homage to him if you want to keep your lights on.  

4.   Glycatia

When angry, she can cook you from the inside.  And she gets mad when you do not follow her dietary laws. 

5.   Lipsthickfussia

Goddess of black gunk, demands respect, following cleansing rituals. 

6.   Conflagratamus

When angry, he can consume you with internal fires.  Requires dietary sacrifices to appease him. 

7.   Immcomoron

When not appeased, he can overwhelm any defenses you may have.  Best to pay attention to him. 

8.   Neuroblastus

Stops you from feeling or thinking straight when angered.  God of pain and confusion, requires respect, paying homage. 

9.   Whoremonia

She drains your vital juices unless sacrifices are made to her.  Demands more as you get older.  Can sap your masculinity. 

10.               Onkosukkaris

Easily-angered and heavily-worshipped god that can eat out your insides without you even noticing it at first.  Has his own laws and little respect for late converts. 

11.               Vascocardus

If not thoroughly appeased beforehand, can strike you suddenly dead any time.  This god is angry at how most of us live but leaves those of us who follow the proper rituals mostly alone. 

12.               Telamoranicus

Timekeeper of life.  Extensions may be available, possibly. 

13.               Destinus-rei-determanitus

Manages the great program of life and death.  A very difficult god to reach and not always reasonable. Rituals involve much mumbo-jumbo. 

14.               Selluratus Steminicus Rompatus

God of the essence of life and the cycles of renewal.  May respond to worship but has so-far been largely aloof.  Time will tell.

Of course these gods are my theories of aging, and you can find out more about any of them by clicking on the god’s name above.


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.
