Dechronification is the concept developed by Robert Freitas that, with nanotechnology, one should be able to reverse the aging process. Freitas suggests that people will be able to "remove accumulating metabolic toxins using resperocyte- and microbivore-class intercellular nanorobots in every tissue cell," "correct genetic damage using chromosome replacement therapy in every tissue cell," and "repair persistent cellular damage using cell repair devices in every tissue cell." This idea is a form of futurology.


  • Old senior folk longing to become young again will finally realize their dreams.
  • Mentally retarded children can keep repeating their grade level in school while looking the part (as old as the other children in their class) until they advance.
  • Mentally retarded adults can dechronify to children and repeat school in hopes of becoming much more productive and successful in life via this newly-invented second chance. (Who will work at McDonald's, you might ask? Sentient, robotic androids will soon perform all menial jobs.)
  • Rescuers needing to retrieve a child in, for example, a hole only big enough for a small kid to fit through, can dechronify themselves down like so and perform the rescue. Afterwards, they rechronify back to an adult.
  • Professional movie actors will not have to grow out of their parts anymore.
  • Speaking of that, there might not be a need to hire child actors anymore because they can then use professional adult actors to play child parts once they go through a "dechronitron".
  • Dechronification will preclude the possibility of a Luddite Revolution from happening due to sentient, robotic androids taking lower-skilled jobs. This is because Dechronification will make way for anybody with lower skills to shrink down to a younger age, repeat school and hence, retrain them for more sophisticated, better-paying jobs that androids couldn't do.

I don't even like Feitas. He is one of these new world scientist that exist simply because he can clatter his silly fingers on a keyboard with no important work actually done to back it up. His writing is packed with generalities, as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:48, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Like the article on Collins, generalities & lies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:14, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
It's pretty low standards to attack and delete sections of an article on me for what you disagree here, and you really have not a clue about the science of self replicators. Working with you people is like working with shock jock journalists or something. All I'm saying, is that Freitas is a fraud on what he wrote about me and you know it. You should not ignore that just because you are "open source" and because he attacked my patent and pile on. You are completely incorrigible. Further, you are sticking up for Napster? That's down in the dirt and you appear to be "Napsterizing" self-replicator science which is unconscionable. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:51, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
Further, who blocked Bower's site I was discussing? That's hacking. Just like before when I reported it to police and was blocked by that nefarious "Yamla" as "legal threats" that started all the flaming. Go ahead, hack and block Bowyers site. See if I care, less PR for that fraud. Wikipedia is a total fraud. An "open source puppet". You have no call to scrape your finger about standards with this level of clear unadulterated bias shown here and all over. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:08, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
I agree. He keeps showing pictures of molecules like gears [1] which further bestowes he deserves to be on Star Trek not things serious here. Antiliby (talk) 16:47, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

There is also something very suspicious and scary about a psychologist like Freitas teaming up with an atomic scientist like Merkle, both with foreign names attacking a major United States Patent holder like Collins with nothing but a load of hot air. Further Merkle tops the Echelon's and Carnivore's "trigger" words [2], obviously a deep military figure. Collin's comments about the government "stealing his technology" may hold true, seeing how an attempt to commit him by both Quantico MCB (case# N004860, thrown out with prejudice) and the Prince William County Circuit Court (LA 49530) occurred with the chief of police indicating on the affidavit the reason was for "saying the government was trying to steal his invention" (mental case thrown out). Looks like another private scientist/inventor was indeed kidnapped by the U.S. government concerning "globalist" interests.

Typical, Wiki editor attacking the victim and not confronting the facts, who cares who brings the truth? (talk) 18:01, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

The facts of what happened are source enough because the facts speak for themselves (that they occurred). But mostly, Merkle and Freitas are source on it because they initiated the dispute when he wrote the controversial page in the book:[3]. So the other facts follow as documentation to that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:06, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
