    Is the Shire of Sandstone Australia’s smallest local government unit?

    What about predicting “extinction” for small local areas. A simple ranking on an “extinction index” …worst 1, 2, 3, etc. with the “guesstimated” year that this might happen. Also the political ineffectiveness of these population to reverse their plight ?. I was for example quite shocked to see the declining population of Mt. Morgan and Longreach. At what point would services to these communities be withdrawn ? and a more centralist model be forced to be the norm. Perhaps this will accelerate the trend into high technology.
    One other question I am concerned with is this. They have been able to REVERSE the Aging of Mice and later hope to apply this to humans.
    To my mind this problem as a medical one has a similarity to conditions like Scurby in Sailors in the 1700’s which was finally beaten in the 1840’s. The use of estimates of the length of Telemers in Cells is the first effective marker of REAL BIOLOGIC AGE which has now been used to show measurements of such reversals. The third prediction of Arthur C Clark was immortality would be achieved by 2025. His first two predictions were spot on to the YEAR !. With the work of Prof. David Sinclair indication indefinite life extension is already possible. All those working with him are taking his “cure” and indeed are looking remarkable young by a couple of decade so far. If such treatments became wide spread it would have profound effects. You can name these yourself.
    Thank yoiu for reading this.
