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.
As predicted two years ago, Technocrat scientists are stepping over the line to edit human DNA and potentially change the germline of inherited genes. There are massive gaps in knowledge of the workings of DNA, but these scientists do not believe that they can make mistakes or cause unintended consequences.
Technocrats of all stripes have such a low view of humanity that there are no boundaries in tinkering with genetic restructuring just for the thrill of doing so. This is ultimately based on the religion of Scientism which posits that all truth is exclusively discovered through science.
There are few ethical or moral boundaries with Technocrat scientists. The slippery slope of dangerous technology has already begun, and will likely end very poorly for mankind. In any case, this could give new meaning to the term ‘sheeple’.
This is not the way to push the frontiers of science, but rather the way to incite other crazies to experiment on their own bodies with untested and unproven therapies. Zayner is right: someone is going to get hurt.
Scientist claims that telepathy between humans will be a reality by 2050 but have no particular evidence to support their claims. However, it is noteworthy that this article reveals a larger plan: an “open source platform for humanity”.
Technocrats and Transhumans will not let their immortality pitch die, as it repeatedly appears in major publications around the world, and with all the standard reasons: cryonics, singularity and mind uploading. Invariably, Ray Kurzweil’s name appears in the article.
Millennials will be convinced that dystopia is straight ahead, thanks to global warming, and the only place where life can be found is within virtual reality. Whereas the Matrix movie presented a compulsory virtual reality that no one was aware of, Ready Player One is voluntary submission. However, virtual reality will re-wire a person’s mind to the point where they cannot distinguish between reality and fantasy; such a mind will be easily controlled by whomever controls the fantasy.
