Major Announcement: Shift In Website Focus, Part II (Important)

I was gone for 11 days in China very recently and I only came back 2 days ago. During the time I was staying there, I did not write many articles or posts. When I was writing the posts, there was always a feeling that for me personally, I was sort of spinning the wheels like a hamster. I have currently 396 published posts and very little of it is really worth of great value.

When I copy and paste long articles I thought people were reading these things and I realized that few people who come to the website do what I thought. So here is the plan. I am going to show all of you want my plans are for the next 365 days, because I realize that the endeavor of height increase feels like it is moving too slowly.

For me, I realized that after a certain point in doing all of these articles and writings, I was getting almost nowhere. This is where it is going to change. For us to solve this problem, we have to really focus our attention on this subject and tackle it.

Here are the avenues that I think are the most promising.

1. Stem Cells and Implants

2. Growth Plate implants

3. Bone Morphogenetic Proteins

4. Mesenchymal Stem Cells

5. Transdifferentiation

6. Gene therapy

Here are the topics or article I was supposed to write on but I will not write about…

1. The Implications Of The BMP-7 AND OP-1 Research On Intervertebral Disk Height

2. The Connection Between Noggin Glycoprotein And Height

3. The Connection Between The Parathyroid Hormone-Related Protein (PTHrP) And Height

4. A Study Of The Insulin Growth Factor Receptor, IGF1R

5. Increase Height And Grow Taller Using Hypothalamic Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone

6. The AKT Signaling Pathway

7. Supplement Formulas To Increase Height And Grow Taller

8. Theories On Delaying Puberty To Extend The Growth Period

9. Increase Height And Grow Taller Using Nitric Oxide

10. Increase Height And Grow Taller Using Ghrelin

It is time to get real. it is time to become honest. It is time to get serious.

NOTE: One major thing I will be doing is finding a real medical school textbook on endocrinology and also orthopedics and studying those things to really understand what the hell I am talking about. I want to admit right now that I only understand up to 50% of everything that I have been talking about.

I. Here are the topics that my coworker Nicki has suggested we research into…

I feel that MScs are key to re-opening the growth plates.
androgens (youve touched upon estrogen) need to cover T
indian hedgehog
glucocorticoids 
Fgfs ( i sent you a post on that)
thyroid hormone
i see youve touched upon igf-1 and gh but i feel it needs further understanding
collagen II deff deserves an in depth post on its own
VEGF
wnt pathway
tgf
phtrp
mesechymal condensation
sox9
seperate posts on key processes for growth? chondrogenesis, osteogenesis etc youknow its better organization as well
i see you mention upon controlling stem cells to determine their fate, needs further research
SOCS
II. Here are the topics that I still have to get through on my blog list of subjects to cover

III. Here are the topics or scientific papers I wanted to review and talk about

IV. From Harald of the Biomedical Growth Research Initiative, I was given a list of scientific articles to look through for ideas which I can’t share on here, yet. 

Me: The truth is that I kind of wanted to start over, and make this site get back to the roots.

Major Change 1: I am going to write only 1 or 2 posts a day but the information in those posts will be of only high quality, the type that you would want to write a comment on and have a heated dissuasion on. I will be challenging the readers to test their intellectual and cognitive ability

Major Change 2: There will be one main page that focuses on the endocrinology of the growth process. There will be another page that focuses on orthopedics.

A. There will be almost no more product reviews since none of the E-products or herbal and amino acid supplements sold on the internet will increase the height of people who are already physically mature. They just don’t work. 

B. There will be almost no more body hacks since since I realize that there are already many websites on the internet that talk about that kind of stuff. This site was created to find a solution to height increase, and that should be what this website should focus on. 

C. Since I do believe that increasing one’s intelligence is important, a few mind hacks for learning how increase one’s intelligence will still be posted. 

D. There will be no more long posts, fewer but in better quality material, and nearly everything that I write will be from my interpretation. Sometimes I will quote small passages from scientific articles or papers but they will be in the italics font with quotations marks around them. My writing will be in normal “times new roman” font.

E. All facts or statement I will try to validate through links, sources, references, and citations. If I make a claim on a scientific principle or idea, I will show you where I got the idea from. 

F. Some old posts will be revised, edited upon, and added upon for future people who manage to find the website to learn and be more informed.
G. The Resources, Useless, Useful, and Complete List of Posts Pages will be always edited and added upon.

That will be all for now. I promise to make this website really worth the time you use to come here and read my material. The late Steve Jobs stated in his most famous delivered 2005 Stanford Commencement Address (found HERE) …

“If you live each day as if it is your last, someday you will most certainty be right…It made an impression on me. Since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked into the mirror every morning and have asked myself ‘If today was the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’…and whenever the answer has been ‘no’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something! …Remembering that I will be dead soon is the most important tool I have ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life, because almost everything, all the external expectations, all pride, all fears of embarrassment or failure, these just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important….”

and finally

“Remembering you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking that you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart…”

Me: I remember just 3 weeks when I was sitting at the cafe where I am sitting right, now, only 3 feet from where I am sitting right now typing away on my Macbook Air laptop, and I found myself miserable. I have proclaimed that I would create a website that would help find a solution on height increase and I was not really doing what my original intentions were. I found myself miserable. I dreaded opening up the laptop and trying to grind out another post on the link between height and some chemical compound. I felt like I was running in circles and making no headway. When I asked myself the Steve Jobs question of whether I would do what I wanted to do if that day was the last day of my life, I said no, at least 10 times in a row. I knew something had to change. I had to change. My environment had to change. So I bought ticket to Shanghai and flew there, for rest and to think. I wanted to refocus my energy and gather my thoughts to see what I was doing.

I realized today after coming back to Seoul that I was not being completely honest, not with you the readers or with myself. I wasn’t really making a true contribution to the world. I was only repeating knowledge and information that thousands, if not millions of people before me have already known and repeat as well. How am I expected to make any real contribution and progress in this endeavor if I don’t raise my own standards and o what I said I would. I needed to  raise my own level of thinking, of problem solving. I have to be better.

When I got on that plane to fly out of Seoul nearly two weeks ago, I found myself feeling the same type of uncomfortable dread in the pit of my stomach which I have always felt a little of before fit takes off. I have been afraid of death, and one of the main reasons was that I haven’t made any real contribution to the world. What have I done or given to the world to make it better? What if I die without ever giving my gifts and talent to this world to leave it a better place than when I arrived? I truly believe that if I can make a big contribution in this endeavors, my heart will be a lot lighter the next time I get on the place. I will be less afraid to die.

I’m sure most of you have already seen part or all of the entire video with Jobs before but I think it is worth your time to watch it at least one more time. I believe it is really worth your time.

    I think the list of topics that you would’ve written about would have been helpful.

    Also MSC cell density seems to be incredibly important for chondrocyte differentiation.
