Tran­shu­manism: H+ or H– ?

Just when most people finally have some aware­ness of the word “Humanism,” that under­standing is now eclipsed with the advent of Tran­shu­manism, or H+.  Like its pre­de­cessor, Tran­shu­manism is all about man and what man can do or be, except that it now incor­po­rates a sophis­ti­cated cock­tail of sci­ence to make it happen.

To restate: Whereas Humanism relied on a meta­phys­ical fan­tasy to achieve its goals, Tran­shu­manism for­ti­fies its meta­phys­ical wish-list with sup­pos­edly objec­tive sci­ence. Never mind that much, if not most, of that objec­tive sci­ence hasn’t been invented yet. To a Tran­shuman, just the promise of future sci­ence is enough for them to count it as reality today.

Starting in the late 1990’s, a pur­poseful merging of four branches of sci­ence has pro­duced a new dis­ci­pline referred to as the “Con­ver­gence.” The four com­po­nents are Nan­otech­nology, Biotech­nology, Infor­ma­tion Tech­nology and Cog­ni­tive Sci­ence, and are often referred to as NBIC. For those not familiar with the field of Cog­ni­tive Sci­ence, it is an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary study that includes psy­chology, arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, phi­los­ophy, neu­ro­science, learning sci­ences, lin­guis­tics, anthro­pology, soci­ology and edu­ca­tion. (see Tha­gard, Paul, “Cog­ni­tive Sci­ence,”, 2008)

The merging of hard sci­ences with areas like psy­chology, phi­los­ophy, edu­ca­tion and soci­ology should make you sweat. This is the final fron­tier of Tech­noc­racy started in the 1930’s, which merged sci­ence with social engi­neering. Whereas Tech­noc­racy was con­cerned with society as a whole, Tran­shu­manism is con­cerned with the person himself.

Since I have been speaking and writing over the last 4 years about Tech­noc­racy and Tran­shu­manism, they have started to spill over into the public media, and not because I was shining light on them, either. Indeed, they are cap­turing the public’s fancy.

The ABC­News head­line two days ago, Human Immor­tality in 33 Years Claims Dmitry Itskov’s 2045 Ini­tia­tive was not a sur­prise to me, but I am sure it left many scratching their head. At 31,  Itskov is a Russian bil­lion­aire with a big vision and lots of cash to burn. It was not a jour­nal­istic fluke that ABC­News picked up his story: He is also a sen­sa­tion in Huff­in­gton Post, Wired Mag­a­zine, IBTimes, count­less radio shows and TV inter­views, etc.

On his own web­site, Itskov writes “Neo-Humanity 2045: A Global Strategy for the Evo­lu­tion of Humanity in the Third Mil­len­nium,” in which he states,

“The for­ma­tion of such an intel­li­gence will not limit the indi­vid­u­ality or freedom of any single person — on the con­trary, it will max­i­mize cre­ative devel­op­ment and facil­i­tate the unlocking of bound­less poten­tial. All this will inevitably lead to the emer­gence of a new society — a society of immortal superpeople.

“Neo-humanity as an ide­ology, a socio-economic struc­ture, and a new form of civ­i­liza­tion will usher in a new era in people’s lives — the tran­si­tion to a cosmic super­civ­i­liza­tion of neo-humans.”

Neo-humanity? A new form of civ­i­liza­tion? Immortal superpeople?

Itskov has plenty of “inter-faith” reli­gious sup­port listed on his web­site as well: The Dalai Lama, Swami Vish­nude­vananda Giri Ji Mahara, Mahasiddha Pilot Baba and even Lazar Puhalo, Arch­bishop of Ottawa of the Orthodox Church in America.

The average response to stuff like this is dis­be­lief, and I say that from my own expe­ri­ence with many audi­ences. I encourage you to take it seri­ously how­ever, because the bil­lion­aires of the world (aka the Global Elite) are get­ting behind Tran­shu­manism and Tech­noc­racy with all the zeal they can muster. They are drag­ging in top sci­en­tists, top lab­o­ra­to­ries and top uni­ver­si­ties, throwing money at them like there is no tomorrow. They view them­selves as the new con­trollers of human and soci­etal evo­lu­tion — and worse, they have a plan for you! If you don’t like that plan, then now is the time to speak up.

If it isn’t clear to you why Tech­no­cratic and Tran­shu­mans reject Bib­lical Chris­tianity, it’s because the God of the Bible is in direct com­pe­ti­tion with their goals to recreate earth and the people in it, in their own image. Whereas the Bible speaks of the laws of sin and death as immutable truths, sci­ence now promises an escape into immor­tality, omni­science, omnipres­ence, etc. They are espe­cially hos­tile toward the thought of needing a Savior because they believe they are fully capable of saving them­selves and on their own terms.

Economy

There have been many studies over time that examine the rela­tion­ship between the stock market and the economy. Does the economy improve because of rising stock prices or do stock prices rise because of an improving economy? The cor­rect view makes a lot of dif­fer­ence in how you inter­pret today’s economy.

One such analysis was con­ducted on the Indian economy and market and con­cluded, “stock market devel­op­ment leads to eco­nomic growth” rather than the other way around. This rela­tion­ship is termed “supply-leading” versus “demand-following” which would sug­gest the opposite.

Another study titled, Finan­cial Devel­op­ment and Eco­nomic Growth: Time Series Evi­dence for the case of UK, point­edly concludes,

“The evi­dence obtained from the co-integration and causality test strongly sup­ports the supply-leading hypoth­esis, which sug­gests that the causal direc­tions run from the devel­op­ment of the finan­cial sector to the real sector (mea­sured by real GDP per capita)”

Con­ven­tional wisdom states just the oppo­site: Stocks rise as a result of eco­nomic development.

The fact of the matter is that the cur­rent uptick in eco­nomic activity, weak as it is, is the result of still-elevated stock prices. When stock prices turn down, eco­nomic activity will follow like the tail fol­lows the dog. If you view today’s market as con­cluding a counter-trend bounce that pre­cedes the next bear market leg down, as I do, then there is no reason to pre­dict some kind of mir­acle eco­nomic recovery over the next 2 – 3 years, which I don’t.

    As the New World Order has no inten­tion of allowing indi­vidual freedom I have dif­fi­culty believing we will have freewill this: [To restate: Whereas Humanism relied on a meta­phys­ical fan­tasy to achieve its goals,

    Frankly the whole sub­ject is drivel. If humans had been allowed to evolve nat­u­rally we would have achieved these tal­ents decades ago. The fact they will get involved with indi­vid­uals reli­gious beliefs is a red flag. Why is reli­gion such a threat to them?

    No I do not have any reli­gious belefs but I defend any­ones right to have them. I just wish we could be more tol­erant of dif­fer­ences & see how these are used to pit us against each other.

    Thanks for a con­cise and non-sensationalized analysis of a dis­turbing and still quite under the radar move­ment taking place among the global elite.
    Without ques­tion, media espe­cially the music and celebrity endorsed/exploited mouth­pieces are con­stantly throwing the imagery around —robots, people with “hard­ware” body parts etc.

    They’re still only humans with colossal ideas but I know the Cre­ator.
    Nothing goes beyond Him…that One of the Bible. Know His Power and His Patience with Elites.. He gave them their brains to think…He can take them away.

    Glad to see you pub­li­cizing this issue, although many have long been aware of it. Of the many pos­sible per­spec­tives, my own selec­tion as to the most cru­cial is this; that we have, for nigh on a cen­tury, endured the social impo­si­tion of a pseudo-scientific world-view insisting that the ENTIRE UNIVERSE is a simple mate­rial con­struct of time, space, matter, and energy.

    But what if it’s not? What if there REALLY ARE such things as psy­chic and spir­i­tual aspects to reality that the materialists/banksters/globalists not only deny, but per­se­cute into silence.

    If the UNIVERSE is, in fact, a spir­i­tual con­struct man­i­festing a mate­rial reality as only one of its aspects, then Tran­shu­manism must be one of the most hor­rible forms of insanity imaginable.

    Thank you Patrick Wood, for reviving old mem­o­ries and mabe some future mem­o­ries too. (I’m 66)

    I’m going to mail-order a modern copy of ‘Zardoz’ star­ring Sean Con­nery. I saw the film once, better than a half-a-lifetime ago. You just brought the film to mind.
    Just got to see the end product of elitism again. Of course there is the added bonus of seeing women in their nat­ural shape on screen, with no added padding. Yummy. They say now-a-days.

    Why are there dashes in many of the words in this article? Is this part of transhumanism?

What is Globalization?

It is the col­lective effect of pur­poseful and amoral manip­u­la­tion that seeks to cen­tralize eco­nomic, polit­ical, tech­no­log­ical and soci­etal forces in order to accrue max­imum profit and polit­ical power to global banks, global cor­po­ra­tions and the elit­ists who run them. It is rapidly moving toward an full and final imple­men­ta­tion of Technocracy.

What is the Tri­lat­eral Commission?

Founded in 1973 by David Rock­e­feller and Zbig­niew Brzezinski, the Com­mis­sion set out to create a “New Inter­na­tional Eco­nomic Order”, namely, Tech­noc­racy. The orig­inal mem­ber­ship con­sisted of elit­ists (bankers, politi­cians, aca­d­e­mics, indus­tri­al­ists) from Japan, North America and Europe. Col­lec­tively, they have dom­i­nated and con­trolled trade and eco­nomic policy in their respec­tive coun­tries since at least 1974.

What is Technocracy?

Tech­noc­racy is a move­ment started in the 1930’s by engi­neers, sci­en­tists and tech­ni­cians that pro­posed the replace­ment of cap­i­talism with an energy-based economy. Orig­i­nally envi­sioned for North America only, it is now being applied on a global basis. Authors Aldous Huxley and George Orwell believed that Tech­noc­racy would result in a Sci­en­tific Dic­ta­tor­ship, as reflected in their books, “Brave New World” and “1984″.

Who is M. King Hubbert?

Hub­bert was a geo-physicist who co-founded Tech­noc­racy, Inc. in 1932 and authored its Tech­noc­racy Study Course. In 1954, he became the cre­ator of the “Peak Oil Theory”, or “Hubbert’s Peak” which the­o­rized that the world was rapidly run­ning out of carbon-based fuels. Hub­bert is widely con­sid­ered as a “founding father” of the global warming and green movements.

Is the Venus Project like Technocracy?

The Venus Project, founded by Jacque Fresco, is a utopian, modern-day iter­a­tion of Tech­noc­racy. Like Tech­noc­racy, it scraps cap­i­talism and pro­poses that “a resource-based economy all of the world’s resources are held as the common her­itage of all of Earth’s people, thus even­tu­ally out­growing the need for the arti­fi­cial bound­aries that sep­a­rate people.” The appli­ca­tion of tech­nology is the answer to all of the world’s prob­lems, including war, famine and poverty.
