Write a software to solve the collatz conjecture divided
In this project, we will build a software program to test a very large set of numbers to test out the conjecture and maybe find a counter example.

Finding a counter example to the conjecture divided 1 subproblem
In this branch, let's try to see if we can find a counter example to the conjecture and explore different strategies or trying a very large number of possibilities and executing the calculations

Collatz Conjecture divided 2 subproblems
Pick any number. If that number is even, divide it by 2. If it's odd, multiply it by 3 and add 1. Now repeat the process with your new number. If you keep going, you'll eventually end up at 1. Every time. Mathematicians have tried millions of numbers and they've never found a single one that... Read more

Defining consciousness divided 3 subproblems
What is the neural basis of subjective experience, cognition, wakefulness, alertness, arousal, and attention? Is there a "hard problem of consciousness"? If so, how is it solved? What, if any, is the function of consciousness?

Reliability theory defined
Reliability theory suggests that biological systems start their adult life with a high load of initial damage. Reliability theory is a general theory about systems failure. It allows researchers to predict the age-related failure kinetics for a system of given architecture (reliability... Read more

DNA damage theory defined
Alexander[51] was the first to propose that DNA damage is the primary cause of aging. Early experimental evidence supporting this idea was reviewed by Gensler and Bernstein.[52] By the early 1990s experimental support for this proposal was substantial, and further indicated that DNA damage due...

Chemical damage defined
hile there may be some validity to the idea that for various types of specific damage detailed below that are by-products of metabolism, all other things being equal, a fast metabolism may reduce lifespan, in general this theory does not adequately explain the differences in lifespan either...

Gene regulation defined
number of genetic components of aging have been identified using model organisms, ranging from the simple budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to worms such as Caenorhabditis elegans and fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster). Study of these organisms has revealed the presence of at least two... Read more
