is a clinical neuropsychologist pioneering a field so original he’s had to
make up a new word for it: biocognition. Here, he talks about what biocognitive science is and how powerfully our health is shaped by the way we perceive the world. From his study of healthy centenarians around the world, Mario has discovered that in only 20 to 25 percent of cases can their lifespan be attributed to genetics; the rest are simply not bound by the “cultural portals” that dictate what it means to be “young” or “old.” He reveals that the immune system has morals, identifies the five portals of health, and explains the three ways we can be wounded—shame, abandonment, and betrayal—as well as the healing fields for each. Then he shares the good news that healthy longevity can be learned at any age, and offers an age-reversal technique to get us started right away.
