More updates to come. See the “Timeline” below. Please forgive me if to you it seems like self-promotion. It’s not intended as that; it’s intended as background information for you. It’s because there ARE 100s of millions people who ARE interested in life extension and want to know. Since there are so many false claims, charlatans, glory hounds, delusional people, incompetent people, mediocre thinkers, and outright profiteers making claims and selling books and products related to life extension, it helps them to know a little about the background of who is talking.
As such I am updating my site www.AlbertVincentSheppard.Com so that people who want to know my background for claiming infinite life extension in my nonprofit Personalized Infinite Life Extension Corporation and for focusing for 5 years on writing the 10-book set on infinite life extension, they can see my path to these concepts, conclusions, and processes and apply that to what is said.
On September 1st, 2020, Albert Vincent Sheppard became the Founder, CEO, and President of a Delaware Non-profit
Corporation: “Personalized Infinite Life Extension, Corporation.” The Journey
In 2015, I gave a presentation to my Chemistry Research
Seminar Class on immortality. The response was so great that began to write a
book on infinite life extension. After I had written one million and 6 hundred
thousand words, I realized that I had written 10 books on infinite life
extension, not just one. Then, after 5 years of writing, I sent out query
letters to try to find a publishing agent. I found out that the state of
publishing is not only a bit of monopoly but currently in disarray. It then
occurred to me that what I had written was not merely a 10-book series but the
basis for a movement for infinites life extension, and so I formed a nonprofit corporation.
The corporation will do far more than simply publish these books; it will give
you actionable processes and knowledge for infinite life extension. It seems
that I’ve been on this path for my entire life, but the last 16 years of
education have been leading me more directly to this point. As in my odyssey, often
we cannot see where we are going until we get there.
Recently, hearing about the 10-book series that I wrote on infinite life extension, a new friend asked me if I was a writer. No! Writing is just a tool to mass communicate to the general public what I have collected and correlated about life extension.
Albert Vincent Sheppard is the Founder of a New Science That He Has
Named The Science of Infinite Life
Extension—More Specifically, Personalized
Infinite Life Extension
“I am the founder of a new science that I have
named The Science of Infinite Life
Extension—more specifically Personalized
Infinite Life Extension. On September 1st of 2020, I formed a
Delaware non-profit corporation, “Personalized
Infinite Life Extension, Corporation,” and received my completed corporate charter (certificate of
incorporation) from the State of
Delaware. I then filed for a United
States/IRS 501(c)3 corporate tax exempt status for the corporation for the purpose of research, analysis, forming conclusions, creating actionable personalized applications of infinite life extension knowledge, relevant innovation,
writing, publishing, and distribution of personalized
infinite life extension information, online applications, building internet networks, and bio-devices for
the benefit of the public.”
How This All Began
In 2015, every week in my Chemistry Research Seminar, a
prominent science and research guest lecturer, working at the leading edge of
her or his field gave a presentation to my class. No single book, academic
course, program, event, or experience had previous expanded my brain’s concepts
of what is currently possible with life science and biotech. Each student class
member was required to give her or his own individual student presentation at
the end of the semester on a relevant topic. Although no lecturer had dared to
say so, and no lecture was about this subject, it was clear to me that we had
already crossed the threshold of infinite extension of life. I chose to give my
presentation on “Immorality.” My talk ignited the class; I was peppered with
questions. I was excited by the connections that I had discovered. Why doesn’t
the average, everyday common person know all this? WHY?! And why has science and medicine been so slow and hesitant
to fully correlate what we know into infinite life extension and announce it to
the world? I announced on Facebook to my friends and followers in over a dozen
countries, that I would make a 15 minute video, but I never did so, because I
couldn’t stop my fingers from writing and my mind from questioning and
correlating more research. From then on, it took me 5 years to complete this. I
thought I was writing one book, but when I saw that I had written over one and
a half million words, I realized that I had written the equivalent of 10 books;
they organically fell into separate related categories.
It took nearly a year to complete the writing my query
letter to publishing agents. I delivered 213 letters to publishing agents to
the post office on Wednesday, July 29th,
2020. I took all the letters to the post office at the same time, so unlike
in a NFL Football draft where only a few teams have a shot at their top
choices, all 213 #PublishingAgents would have an equal chance at signing me up
or rejecting me as a writer client. A #QueryLetter is
a formal letter, which an #author sends #LiteraryAgents
and rarely to publishing companies to propose writing ideas or asking for them
to represent the author and her or his written work/book to a publishers.
Clearly, I’m NOT a want-to-be #writer. This is a project
that required the 10-book series to kick it off. I have multiple degrees
including a MBA, MISM, and MPA in healthcare. While I am a long-term continuing student at multiple universities, after leaving the U.S. Marine Corps where I entered as a private and was honorably discharged as a captain, I acquired a ton of real job and professional experience in various industries, and businesses including business consulting, business development, mailing, printing,
marketing, advertising, sales, distribution, web development, proving internet
services as an ISP, a top-level bulk domain registrar, and even taught Salsa and Latin dancing. With the help of the Veterans Administration, I left business and began what in the year 2020 added up to 16 years of university education in healthcare, biotech, biomedical, sciences, telemedicine, information systems, and biomedical engineering technology.
More recently, I have been accumulating this knowledge and
building my concepts for infinite life extension for over 16 years in various
colleges and universities in various states in the #UnitedStates as well as
doing my own #research of research. …and still I feel that I have barely
scratched the surface of what I want to know and what I need to know and want
to share with you; I’m currently working to complete my 2nd, 3rd,
and 4th Bachelor’s Degrees to add to my 3 Master’s Degrees. I plan
to add a 5th Bachelor’s in Software Engineering, a 4th Masters in Computer Programming, and a MD, medical doctor’s degree. I’m not
continually adding university degrees for a job, a profession, for
prestige, or for ego. It’s ALL relevant knowledge that I need to advance my
concepts of personalized infinite life extension. It’s quite a different
experience to sit in a class and do work while applying it ALL to refining my

The Formation of a Nonprofit Corporation to Get the Life Extension Information Out to the Public: Books Alone Would Not Be Enough: Spurred Forward to form a Nonprofit Corporation by The Sad Reality of
Publishers and Publishing Agents and The Publishing Status Quo
I have written something incredibly important and
ground-breaking. I have written a 10-book series on how YOU can achieve
infinite life extension. If this is such a breakthrough,
why haven’t I published it in scientific journals? The answer to that is that
no one publishes a 10-book series in #ScientificJournals, AND infinite life
extension goes far beyond science and scientific method even though #science is
at the base of everything including life and life extension. I would also not
call it a “breakthrough” because
much of the knowledge has been available, but scientists and the medical
profession failed to put it all together. That is one problem with reductionist
thinking although science needs reductionism to get the core of how life works.
Another reason is that I have NOT written this for scientists, peers, #PeerEvaluations,
professional prestige, academics, professors, STEM students, or for money. I
have written it for YOU and for those that I have referred to in my books as
“the average everyday, common person.” YOU have been neglected by science,
doctors, researchers, teachers, medicine, healthcare, and your own parents and
grandparents regarding infinite life extension. The medical profession and
healthcare professionals are our heroes, but they are merely too busy focusing
on illness, injury, disease conditions, and cures. That is NOT infinite life
extension. Your parents, your grandparents, and your ancestors failed you
concerning infinite life extension simply because they didn’t know. People
still don’t know (or believe).
Some of the few people that I’ve told about this book series
on infinite life extension want to know “What’s
the secret? (...to infinite life extension)” There is NO secret; it’s a process that has taken
me years and 10 books to research and to explain. Most people’s minds are
programmed by commercialism to want to know the secrets of anti-aging, long life, etc., rather than expecting to do
the work to get there.
Infinite life extension is not the title of the book series,
and I have INTENTIONALLY avoided posting or discussed any details on #Facebook,
#Twitter, or other social networks about what I have written or my concepts.
You have NEVER even heard of most of my life extension concepts from
researchers, scientists, doctors, or others. What I’ve written cannot be
explained in a few words; it took me 10 books to write it all and a178 page
letter to publishing agents to merely explain what the books are about. Now,
you will be able to read most of what I wrote to publishing agents, but not the
books themselves on this corporate website:
My first choice was to contract with an established #publisher
that has established distribution chains to distributors and #BookStores. But, it’s nice to know that I have
#SelfPublishing as an outlet if I don’t get a #PublishingAgent and get my #book
series #published the traditional way.
Some publishing agents ask that a prospective writer send
them ONLY 1, 2, or 3 pages to tell them about the book. Some don’t want
anything in the postal mail; you have to send it email and explain in one page,
and some allow 1 to 4 pages by email, etc. Some #agents don’t tell you how many
pages to send in your #QueryLetter.
If a publishing agent allows you to send postal mail, you
must also include and stamped self-addressed, stamped envelope (#SASE), so that
they can send you a reply to your query letter, e.g. a rejection letter. Most
would be writers get rejection letter after #RejectionLetter after rejection
letter…and then more rejection letters. So, many want-to-be writers just give
I broke all the rules of a query letter. My letter is not,
as just 1 to 3 pages; it’s 178, full-color, double-sided pages. Whether or not
the agent asked for email, I sent it postal mail.
Agents want the writer to write exclusively to them—not
multiple agencies. So, they hate it when they know that I have written to 213
I have been getting responses/replies weekly and there remain
145 publishing agents that I have not heard back from to date. After reading my
178 page explanation and discussion of my work on infinite life extension, many wrote strong personal notes to me using words that praised my work.
I sent the 213 query letter to all the publishing nonfiction
publishing agents that advertise that they are interested in representing
written works such as I have written. Most of the agents were in New York, and
New York was hit VERY hard by coronavirus. 68 of my letters (to query about
representation for my 10-book series on infinite life extension were returned
to me unopened as “Undeliverable,” “Addressee moved with no forwarding
address,” “Insufficient address,” or returned for unknown reasons. I hope it’s
not because they died or are ill from the virus. I will research the addresses
and resend the 68 letters again if I find the new or correct addresses.
My query letters went to the top publishing agents in the
United States as well as a few in Canada and the United Kingdom. So, I now know
that the top agents of the publishing world of non-fiction books across
multiple topics including health, medicine, healthcare, bio-sciences, other
sciences, food and nutrition, neurology, psychology, childcare, women and
girl’s issues and history, babies and children, skincare, self-help, life
extension, etc. consider what I have written “a strong project,” “ambitious,”
“interesting,” “amazing work," a "very impressive presentation,” and
has the potential to be “successfully published.”
Infinite life extension, of course, also includes retaining
youth, long-term rejuvenation of visible and non-visible aging--and yes epidemics,
pandemics, social science, and psychological science. So, those positive
comments included what I had explained on these issues too, and they thought I
was credible here too. NONE of the publishing agents questioned the credibility
of what I wrote about infinite life extension, I appreciate all the positive
and encouraging comments and personal notes from many of them.
have come to the conclusion that some publishing agents actually sound
apologetic or disturbed as though they are struggling with not being able to
represent such an important work because of their business model or their
publishers don’t fit and/or because they already have too many clients, and are
in an uncertain state for the traditional publishing industry. With much of the
economy still shut down, including many book stores, traditional book sales
have been greatly impacted. Meanwhile online sales for nearly ALL industries
have gone up by the 10s of millions or billions.
have also come to the conclusion that what I have written is OVERWHELMING
and intimidating to publishing agents, far over their heads, and falls into too
many categories of subjects and industries for them to grasp. I believe my
10-book series on infinite life extension BLOWS their minds, and that they are
too comfortable in their present world to do the work. NOTHING in their
experience or knowledge of life, science, research, peers, contacts, or beliefs
has prepared them to conceive of infinite life extension.
have also come to the conclusion that most publishing agents have never
thought it possible and certainly not until many dozens or perhaps a hundred
years from now. As a result, they understand what I have written in the unbelievably
long 178 page query letter but are impotent to take action. I believe that the publishing
industry has evolved to a sad state whereby nearly all of the publishers and
publishing agents are concerned only with what they can quickly convert to
money with the LEAST amount of work and/or risk.
have also come to the conclusion that over the decades, publishers and
publishing agents have essentially created a monopoly of the publishing
industry by tightly controlling what can be mass published and what they will
not publish. In a sense, this has led to dumbed-down availability of work that
is published. Recently, self-publishing out-of-pocket or with digital funding, and
online internet sales via ecommerce has become a reality and affordable option
for nearly all writers and is a way to break through the monopoly and get new knowledge, new
concepts, cutting-edge fringe works, and underrepresented literature out to the
Was there ever a time in history when the goal, the mission,
or the vision of publishers was primarily to publish books and written
materials to benefit the people? I
think not. I believe it has always been just a business. It is the writers that have a bone to pick or information,
thoughts, or stories that they
desperately want to share with large numbers of people. Unfortunately, the great majority of writers have also
succumbed to the disease of writing for money or for glory—not for you.
I've made the decision to self-publish if no publishing agent steps forward by the end of the year 2020. Meanwhile,
I am continuing these steps and preparing to self-publish and crowd finance my 10-book series. As you
may recall, I am a former ISP and a bulk registrar of top-level domains of the
internet with my own websites and servers. So, I already have dozens of
websites on which to present and advertise the infinite life extension project,
but this week I will open multiple new websites specific to the Personalized Infinite Life Extension and the 10-book
series. You will be able to read most of what the publishing agents read in
my 178 page query letter, which explains what’s in the book series as well as
about the software engineering project that is forthcoming to support those who
begin the journey of infinite life extension.
These websites initially will state the mission and the
vision for Personalized Infinite Life Extension Corporation, but it will take
time to create complete content. They are for information and updates on
progress including the estimated timeline. They will contain updates and
information about any progress on the publishing of the Personalized Infinite
Life Extension Corporation’s 10-book series, progress on crowd funding,
announcements about the Non-profit 501 C status, corporate updates as well as
some discussion of our online applications and networks, and bio-devices.
Why Is This Nonprofit Not about Profit and Not about Sales
I am the founder of a new science that I have named The
Science of Infinite Life Extension—more specifically Personalized Infinite Life
Extension. On September 1st of 2020, I formed a Delaware non-profit
corporation, “Personalized Infinite Life Extension, Corporation,” and received
my completed corporate charter (certificate of incorporation) from the State of
Delaware. I am now filing for a United States/IRS 501(c)3 corporate tax exempt status
for the corporation for the purpose of research, analysis, forming conclusions,
creating actionable personalized applications of infinite life extension knowledge,
relevant innovation, writing, publishing, and distribution of personalized
infinite life extension information, online applications, building internet
networks, and bio-devices for the benefit of the public-not for the intention
of making profits and not for the intention of making revenue from sales and
The Intention is to Greatly Benefit Society
The intention is to greatly benefit society by proving what
I have named the “average everyday common person,” the knowledge, the
processes, methodology, the tools, and the mindset to extend her or his life
infinitely or to live as long as she or he chooses to live with youthfulness, maximized health, and disease free. It is NOT
about making money; it’s about YOU and providing you with a personalized
methodology and tools for long-term life extension with visible and internal
youth and health.
As a Marine Corps veteran officer who was affected by the
circumstances of violent combat, the Veterans Administration helped me to
return to school in 2004, and at the publishing of this book in 2021, I will
have been continually in school or taking college and university classes for 16
years. Initially, I wanted to pursue a dream of educating myself in medicine,
healthcare, the bio-sciences, electronics, and innovative technology. I was
overjoyed to find that there was a degree program of Technology Management with
and emphasis on Biomedical Engineering Technology.
That was my first Bachelor’s Degree awarded in 2008. I now have completed 3
Master’s Degrees, MPA (Masters of Public Administration) with a concentration
in Healthcare Management; a MISM (Masters of Information Systems Management)
with a concentration in IS Tools (programming), and a MBA (Masters of Business
Administration) with a concentration in Information Systems Management—completed each one with
the honor designation of “With Distinction.” In 2020, I began a triple Bachelor’s
Degree enrollment to add a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th
Bachelor’s Degrees in Biology for Research, Psychology, and Computer Science.
By the year 2023, when I intend to enter medical school to earn a MD (medical
degree), I am on track to have 5 Masters Degrees and 5 Bachelor’s Degrees. The
MD degree will make a total of 11 university degrees and I may add a PhD to
make it an even dozen.
BUT WHY? It is because there are NO
known qualifications to be an expert on infinite life extension; all I can do
is to do continuous/non-stop self-education in related domains, do research, do
research of research, correlate, analyze, draw conclusion with logical innovative
thought, and engage with society by all means to create beneficial change for
life extension that will allow a person to live a youthful, disease free, and
healthy life for as long as she or he chooses to live. As I said, often we
cannot see where we are going until we get there. Once again, it’s a nonprofit,
and the intent is NOT about making profits or maximizing sales even so, for a
nonprofit to accomplish its mission and vision, it must be governed a vibrant
strategy and good principles of business planning, management, and operations.
The following story of a conversation with my bookcover designer is
I agreed to the contract cost. The designer specified the completion date of the bookcover for the end of February for normal time. I just asked him how much he would charge for a “rush” job on my bookcover. February was “just around the corner” as people say, but if available earlier, I could begin to post the images and gradually post more information about the book and what I have covered concerning infinite life extension on this site, so you could anticipate what’s coming.
Here’s something revealing about how people think in today’s commercial minds. My designer illustrator is a professional illustrator and designer with 7 years of full-time experience in book cover design, who has created over 500 covers, mainly in science fiction and fantasy, many of which have become best sellers. He has spent over 15000 hours working as a professional illustrator between book covers, board games, and video games. He has worked with bestselling writers and consistently has between 8-15 covers in the top 100 books on Amazon. He works on a continuous basis with 14 of the top authors popular categories on Amazon. It choose this designer because of his skill and creativity of design. Although life extension can to some people sound like a boring and serious topic, I have NOT written it that way; the cover and illustrations must grab the reader’s attention, along with the title, subtitles, and content, to motivate her or him to open the book and never let the reader’s interest waiver. The designer is to create a design that is clearly NON-fiction but shows the adventure that the reader is about to embark on to access #InfiniteLifeExtension.
My designer-illustrator said to me that if I am planning to sell books online, he thinks ebook is necessary, because with most of his clients ebooks are 98% of their sales. He said, “Most that most people don’t buy physical books anymore.”
While I respect his talent and his works immensely, this shows how so many people have different values of what’s important in life, etc. I told him “My project is not merely for people to get a “good read.” I expect that this book will be kept in homes almost like a coffee table book. …to be a subject of conversation with guests and family…and to be constantly picked up almost like a reference book. Two of the books are about cooking, food selection and preparation; I expect them to be kept in or near kitchens. One book will probably be the favorite of the skincare industry. I expect that book will be in a lot of salons and treatment rooms. That’s something physical that old and young can touch and feel. I’m around physical books all the time, and even though I often have access to ebooks, especially for online classes, I have a huge personal library of print books. I always double down and buy the hard copy too even if I have an online textbook with my courses. I hope that my book might also be eligible for some award, and the awards that I have in mind require that the book is a print copy book. So, it’s about sales yes, but it’s not ALL about sales. The print copy is the main focus still, but I’d like to do the ebook simultaneously. Thanks.
So, there is still a strong place in this world for printed books, AND people DO still love and buy printed books—even though the publishing industry is under siege from being a partially monopoly of agents and publishers, from the economic shutdown of storefront stores, and from what has become a mature and strong self-publishing industry with ebooks and printed books.
You should know that I didn’t have to create a nonprofit corporation to research, analyze, write, publish, promote, and distribute information and methodology for infinite life extension if it was about sales or making money. A nonprofit can make profit but it prohibits the money from being distributed to the founder (me) or officers of the nonprofit—although I can be an employee of the corporation. Employee salaries must be reasonable and are monitored by government entities overseeing nonprofits. If it was about profit and sales, I would have chosen a different kind of business structure. I have written this 10-book series for your benefit and the benefit of global society—not for profit or merely sales. While sales, of course, are an important part of distribution, it is NOT the purpose of the 10-book series and the subsequent books to come that are already in planning. It never surprises me how commercialism is first on people’s minds. Often, it works against important human values, or I should say that it usually works against important human values. I will apply for a 501(c)3 United States/IRS nonprofit status this month (October 2020), which would be federally exempt from taxes, but Personalized Infinite Life Extension Corporation is already a State of Delaware nonprofit corporation.
I stay excited about each step of the progress each day. It’s also fun, and I’ll be putting together a formal strategy/business plan soon. It will be nice to dust off my business experience and put my MBA to use to enhance what began with the 16 years of education, 5 years of writing, 5 years of research of research, bio-sciences, healthcare, biotech, biomedical, information systems, and bio-device technology systems education and concepts. Did I mention that it’s fun?
