Biopoints of Failure

Just like JWST (James Webb Space Telescope) teams enumerated all possible signle-points-of-failure to compute spacecraft risk, enumerate all human organism (or bio-organism) points of failure, and strategize to reduce its failure risk.

It may be not so hard to start optimizing human organism for longevity as it seems -- simply start making a list of possible bio-organism points of failure to systematically eliminate with redundancies. This could start as a free web wiki ( say, smth like http://points.of.failure.bio ), where are elaborated on.

[failure] - meaning "brain-death or incapacitation" -- as long as brain can function socially productively, consider one not brain-dead.

FIC - Family of International Classifications https://www.who.int...rds/classifications
Contains: ICD-11, ICF, ICHI - big lists of issues, but not critical points of failure. [Mindey, Dec 30 2021]

A gist of what I mean: both a "lets..." and a "list..." but yet, I need to check, if there's something like that out there. Maybe should do it on Wikipedia? Could do this on Wikipedia, but it is not as easy to arange and move things around in there. [Mindey, Dec 30 2021]

       How will redundancy help with your telomeres?

       // Needs better explanation of how, less wishful thinking.   

       [a1], give me an hour, I'll try to explain more specifically, what I mean.

       Does "failure" here mean specifically death, or does it include anything going wrong? If it means death, then you could start with the causes of death on death certificates; that would give you a list, quickly, and some statistics for the purposes of prioritization.

       [failure] - let's consider it to mean "brain-death or incapacitation" -- as long as brain can function socially productively, consider one not brain- dead. In fact, this removes a swathe of IDC-11 table, essentially, requiring only blood with taking metabolites, providing nutrients and synthesizing antibodies.   

       // If it means death, then you could start with the causes of death on death certificates   

       I had in fact started with that, a publicly available list (death certs, see link)

       [a1], check the link ( failure.bio ), it's not a "let's all ...", because it's not something that people are already really doing.   

       It provides a little bit new regarding the focus of these "bio-failures". I just don't know a better (more convenient) way to keep a list of such an important thing, and involve others, like doctors, etc. to contribute.

       "Chilton's Guide to the Human Body, for models produced between 1973 and 1976, containing D141A, E143A, A485L mutations on 9°N polymerase."   

       I imagine this could take some time.

       Regarding "Aortic dissection", there are probably (I'm not a doctor...) supplements or proteins that will strengthen aorta walls, reducing the risk of them spontaneously failing. That sort of thing.
