The Digital Mantrap: An Operating System for the Human Organism is a 10-year project based on over 800 peer-reviewed, scientific references

The Digital Mantrap is a training program that provides a comprehensive and unified approach to enhancing quality of life, achieving physical fitness, and cultivating a vibrant, dynamic lifestyle. The Digital Mantrap showcases the program's content by telling a story about how technology has disconnected the nourishing bond between us, as a species, and our long-lost natural habitat and illustrates how technology has historically damaged our well-being and biological function.

While the story unfolds, The Digital Mantrap aggressively dismantles, one by one, a multitude of popular--but erroneous--diet, exercise, and "anti-aging" belief systems. Then, from a foundation of concrete, peer-reviewed evidence, you are presented with Six Laws of Biological Preservation, which, when implemented, serve as An Operating System for the Human Organism. Destined to be the incubator of many interesting conversations, never before has there been such a unified system of such sweeping scope that not only tells you what to do but also why to do it--and what the inevitable consequences are if you don't.

Once you begin The Digital Mantrap, there is no turning back. You will never think of how you adapt and survive in this world in the same way again. The story is told in a provocative manner that weaves technology, history, insight, satire and powerful metaphors into a fabric of great strength. You may assume that the health problems that plague the digital man are age-old problems while actually most of our perilous ills are unintended consequences of backfiring technology. A sedentary lifestyle coupled to chronic, high stress, sleep deprivation, and fast, fat, hollow nutrition has devilishly bred a digital mantrap that is on an accelerating trajectory in lock-step with every new technological feat.

By the time the story ends new discoveries and, consequently, new priorities will spontaneously emerge within your mind: you will be compelled to reconcile the diabolical paradox between economic cost of living and biological cost of living--and their direct bearing on your quality of life. The Digital Mantrap will be both a shocking wake-up call and inspiration for you to change your compass setting 180 degrees now.

From the Publisher:

Quality of life: what is it and how do you achieve it? Imagine a story narrated by the human body about its own interpretation of food, physical activity, and stress through the millennia: The Digital Mantrap chronicles this eye-opening journey from before the invention of the spear all the way to the wireless device. You will be taken on a guided tour of the origins, causes and effects of obesity, aging, cardiovascular disease, cancer, adult-onset diabetes, osteoporosis, and dementia--and learn how to sidestep them by reconnecting to your own body's long-forgotten wisdom. Once you see, first hand, the impossible odds the human body has of overcoming the catastrophic side effects imposed by myopic technological advances, you will appreciate how to enhance the quality of your own life by simply doing what your own body expects and needs to maintain robust health. A 10-year study based on over 800 peer-reviewed references, The Digital Mantrap presents six, integrated Biological Laws of Preservation, an intuitive prescription for quality of life as drafted by the human body's original primordial health plan--and meticulously and irrefutably reinforced by scientific research on every level of complexity from molecular to organismic to ecological.
