Abstract: Aging, the effect of time on living species, reflects the slow-down of genetically-encoded biological processes as time passes by. Clocks involved are themselves imprinted at the genetic level, their daily 24-h fine-tuning being adjusted by a central clock in the brain - the so-called suprachiasmatic nucleus or SCN - itself referenced to the median position of the sun. The revolution of the earth on its own axis though takes 23 h 56 min only (sidereal day-time), resulting in a daily 4-min dephasing between a day-time with the sun taken as a “light” reference (the genetic contribution) and that with the sun taken as a “magne” reference (the memetic contribution). From that perspective then, one can attempt at defining aging as the accrued dephasing - 4 min daily - between the body (genetic part) and the mind (memetic counterpart) as time passes by, for a total of 24 h annually.
Our hypothesis is that an unconscious daily time-contraction of 4 min of the circadian biological cycle of any living species on earth cancels out the effect of time (not time per se), i.e., aging .
