CEO of Ascendance Biomedical Aaron Treyvik (Aaron Traywick) was found dead at his home in Washington, DC, police spokesman edition Vice News . According to one of Traivik’s relatives, his body was found in a sensory deprivation chamber – a special reservoir filled with water or other liquid, where sound and light do not penetrate, so that a person isolates himself from any sensations.

While there is no information about the reasons and the exact date of death of Treivik, but the police have no reason to believe that there was an evil intent.

In recent weeks, Treyvik did not communicate with any of his colleagues. According to researcher Ascendance Biomedical Andreas Stuermer (Andreas Stuermer), with Traivik, all lost any contact: “Just radio silence. [Last contact] was four weeks ago. ”

Ascendance Biomedical gained fame as a company whose employees were willing to conduct medical experiments on their own. For example, during one of the conferences, Treyvik in a live broadcast took off his pants and injected himself with an injection that supposedly was supposed to cure him herpes.

Another Ascendance Biomedical researcher, Tristan Roberts, in 2017 introduced a chemical compound that supposedly had to change his genetic code to cure him of HIV – and he showed the whole process live on Facebook.

However, in recent weeks there has been a growing discrepancy between the views of Treyvik and the rest of the staff on the future development of the company. Vice News noted that the founder of Ascendance Biomedical had no medical education. Nevertheless, Treyvik’s colleagues honored his death and expressed the hope that the company will continue its work.

Although many in the field of biohacking did not agree with his methods, no one doubted his intentions. He wanted neither more than a revolution in biomedicine, the democratization of science and the opening of the gates for a worldwide cure.
