What is the Centurist Club?

The Centurist Club is a free, twice-monthly, one-hour Zoom event moderated by Dwight Goldwinde for those of us who may have interest in or who are centurists

The pilot aired live at 8:00am on Sunday, September 24th, 2023 from DaNang, Vietnam. Dwight was joined by ten participants in the Americas (Saturday evening), one from Colombia (also Saturday evening), and one from China (Sunday morning).

The future schedule of the Centurist Club will be second and fourth Sundays of each month (or the Saturdays before those Sundays for those in the Americas). To adjust for a slightly better time slot for those in the Americas, future episodes will start at 7:00am in Vietnam on Sunday. The new times for Saturday in the Americas will be PDT/PST of 5:00pm/4:00pm, MDT/MST of 6:00pm/5:00pm, CDT/CST of 7:00pm/6:00pm, and EDT/EST of 8:00pm/7:00pm. Beijing time will be 8:00 am on Sunday.

Current intentions are to record each session (with editing by request) and post them here for general public viewing. Access to Google is needed.

46 Covenants

Each day I use this checklist to support me in my daily (and future) life. Most of these covenants relate to my health and longevity, starting mostly from #15.

Here are a few explanations.

  • The dates indicate either a starting date or modification date for the item (in its current re-creation)

  • #15 WBV = Whole body vibration machine. I use this at my stand-up desk while I am working on my computer.

  • #16 RLT = Red light therapy device used on my upper body (mostly the face and chest areas)

  • #24 green smoothie = a blender drink containing some of the other supplements (like the food yeast) along with carrots, cauliflower, kale, bell pepper, cucumber, ginger root, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and green beans.

  • #43 and #44 = climbing up and down a half-flight on stairs (9 steps down and 9 steps up) 60 times which equates to climbing down the 30 flights of stairs (I live on the 31st floor) and up 30 flights of stairs. Currently, I do this with a rucksack on my back weighing 5.2 kg (or 12.1 pounds).

Loving the journey is important

Why would we want to be able to celebrate our second century and beyond? Only if we were loving the journey, right? I shared with the other centurists the eight pathways along which I love living my life.


Another centurist resource through ChatGPT

I asked Dr. Huberman about the treatment options for varicose veins that are causing edema in the feet and legs.


Here's the recipe provided by the Sous Chef.

Here's the image provided by the Sous Chef of the dish created from the recipe.


I keep a large container of pre-mixed beans and whole grains in my kitchen cabinet. Every four to five days I will soak up a batch of them for at least two hours. Using my Instant Pot, I cook them up nice and soft and then store them in my refrigerator. These gives me easy access to include 5-6 servings of beans/grains in my everyday set of meals and snacks.


I wanted to sleep on the floor using a futon for my health. However, I also wanted the convenience of "getting into my bed" instead of getting down on the floor to sleep for my naps and overnight. Solution: I bought a large board to cover my bed and then put the futon on top of that. Works great!
