Technocrat engineers are obsessed with Transhumanism and conquering immortality, but this ‘breakthrough’ is little more than a technology parlor trick to imitate life after death. Before technology, we had puppets with strings, and this is no different except that it is much more realistic.
Transhumanist Ray Kurzweil of Google and North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un have two things in common: they both want to conquer immortality and bring their fathers back to life. Moreover, North Korea has been experimenting with human cloning for at least 10 years already. With zero ethical restraints, these Technocrat scientists are free to do anything their minds can conceive.
Research ‘breakthroughs’ are arriving at an increasing frequency as scientists peel back the genesis of life. Technocrat scientists have little concern with the legal or ethical implications of their research, and will push the envelope until it bursts apart. It is a Transhuman dream to re-engineer humanity altogether.
The transhuman fantasy of downloading their brains into a computer network persists no matter what evidence to the contrary is presented. Although Ray Kurzweil was the first high-profile technologist to popularize this, many other scientists have since jumped on the bandwagon. Transhumanism and Technocracy are the twin creations of Scientism.
Technocrat social engineers, drunk on questionable and unreliable science, see human engineering as the final frontier of mankind. The door is now wide-open for the next generation to become their grand experiment.
The ‘Event”? This is a penetrating article that concludes that the real future of technology is about just one thing: escape. This includes colonizing Mars (Musk), reversing the aging process (Thiel) and uploading minds into supercomputers (Kurzweil, Altman).
Radical medical experiments are often seen in China, rather than the US or Europe, because Technocracy has no strong ethic or desire to prevent them. If science can ‘do it’, then it should. This also appeals to the Transhuman movement which seeks to achieve immortality through science.
Regardless of statements to the contrary, this technology will ultimately lead to the attempted cloning of humans. Technocrat scientists invent because they can, not because there is any good, moral or ethical reason to do so. The guiding philosophy is whatever science can do, it should do.
When a convention of 200 Technocrat-minded DNA scientists get together to discuss the human genome, one might expect a project like this to emerge. That is, let’s start from scratch and re-write the whole genome. They have no sense that humanity is not their playground to experiment with creating life.
The lure of Transhuman immortality intensifies as scientists discover that a brain can stay alive outside of its original body. It is a giant, if not impossible, leap to believe that such a brain could be transplanted into another body.
