Note Note: Anyone not familiar with the general nature of a "wiki" may benefit from reading the Wikipedia wiki article before proceeding.

LERDIT Purpose and Organization

  • The LERDIT (Life Extension Research Development Information and Testing) wiki was created in March 2012 and is being used to accomplish the research, information presentation and organization necessary to provide comprehensive and complete scientific information and services via the website, which information and services are intended to enable a Subscriber to, who totally follows our regimens there, to live in good health and function to the age of 120 years or more.
  • The individuals doing this work have organized themselves according to the arrangements detailed on the LERDIT Partnership operation page and any use of "we", "us" and "our" herein refers to the LERDIT Partners unless otherwise specified.

Access to the LERDIT Wiki

  • The LERDIT wiki is a private wiki no part of which is viewable without being explicitly registered by the wiki owners - the LERDIT Partnership.
  • No part of the content of this wiki is in the "public domain" and any duplication of that content in any form will be viewed by the LERDIT Partners as a "Responsible Harm".
  • The fact that you are reading this page means that you have been registered and given reader access (at least) to this wiki. Reader access does however mean that you can modify your preferences (see "My preferences" in top-right page horizontal menu) and that you will have your own writable User and Discussion pages. In order that all parties see the wiki pages in the same manner and can therefore more easily explain any usage problems to one another, we strongly recommend that you ensure that your "My preferences" settings are the same as those detailed on the screen-shots at LERDIT.ORG:Default_"My_Preferences".
  • The major purpose of reader access only is to enable you, as an invited prospective investor/funder or content/software contributor, to examine the activities and operations of the LERDIT Partnership for the purpose of deciding whether or not to become an investor/funder of the project or a content/software contributor, as either a Partner or an Associate. Such examination time is limited to the number of days that was communicated in your invitation, which time should be sufficient for you to make your decision. If you have questions and/or require additional time, then please make appropriate comments with reasons on your User discussion page.
  • If you are an External Investor, a Partner or an Associate (or in some other special relationship with the LERDIT Partners) then you will also have write access to all LERDIT wiki contents so that you can ask pertinent questions, make pertinent suggestions and generally enter into the Partnership discussions regarding any of the content.

LERDIT Partnership Methods of Operation

  • Selection of the "Community portal" button-link (top-left side of page vertical menu) will take you to the area of the LERDIT wiki which describes the methods of operation of the LERDIT Partnership and contains links to all subpages involved with those methods (all within an area that is called a "namespace" with name LERDIT.ORG).
  • Also indexed on the Community portal page are several pages of implementation plans for completion of the subscriber website -

Pages of Live120Plus in various stages of completion

Note Note: This project has turned out to be much more work than it was initially thought that it would be, partly because as we got into the project the initial plans changed to encompass more and more as those additions were seen to be necessary to accomplish the goal in a complete and scientific manner. For this reason most of the pages are still incomplete, barely begun, not yet planned and many are named, but not yet even created (shown by a red link, as per this example).
However since there will always be new scientific findings related to pages that we have completed, some findings even requiring the creation of pages on new life extension methods, we will be constantly updating the LERDIT wiki and transferring those updates to Live120Plus for the Subscribers there to read and use.
