Now, a couple of thoughts just to put this in context for folks, and I spent a lot of time, I 80% of my investments are in this. Place I run a community called the abundance 360 Summit, where I coach some four hundred CEOs and leaders. And the most popular topic there is longevity. Every year, I sort of say this is on the Leading Edge. This is on the leading edges and what you can do. Now, this is what you do. This decade ahead. So the question is, why do we age? And there's a few things to point out. First of all, back a hundred thousand years ago, a million years ago when we were early on It's evolving on the Savannahs of Africa. You would go into puberty at age 13, no birth control back then. So by the time you were 14, you were pregnant. And by the time you were 26, 27 28, you are a grandparent. Your kids were having kids and back then food was scarce right? There was no McDonald's, no Whole Foods. And the worst thing you could do for the perpetuation of the species was steal food from your grandchildren's mouth. The best thing you could do. Was like die and give back your bit. So we, we didn't live really past age, 30 past the late 20s back then. And so, if you were, if you had a disease that would kill you in your 40s 50s or 60s was never selected against. And so we didn't promote, we didn't have evolutionary forces for a long live life. That's the first thing to point out the second thing. Interestingly enough. You know, I'm 60 now. I have the same gene. As when I was 20 and the question is, why don't I look like? I was 20 and it turns out, it's not your genome sequence. It's not the 3.2 billion from your mother 3.2 billion from your father. It's which of those 30,000 genes is turned on in which is turned off. And the that is called the epigenome Epi meaning above the genome. It's controlled and your epigenome determines, which genes should be on in, should be off and the challenges as you get older. Some of the wrong genes are on and some of the wrong genes are off and that's principally. What's driving aging. And so there's a lot of different approaches to addressing addressing that and No, when I think about the biggest markets for entrepreneurs or investors on the planet, it's Ai and Longevity or biotech. There's no bigger markets on planet Earth, right?
