The year is 2018 . . .
ARE WE DESTINED TO SELF-DESTRUCT ?
We must examine our relationship between Self and family - the Human Race. Do you care enough to resist the Archon/psychopaths?
"Though it's unlikely, but not impossible that some of the original alien visitors may still be physically alive and present, their offspring certainly do exist and continue to bring mankind to the brink of spiritual degradation and physical annihilation for their own selfish purposes." ~ Michael Tsarion
|"Since the dawn of
time, the most powerful groups in every society have practiced forms of
mind control on populations. They determined it was necessary.
Eventually, they decided it was their most important job. Convincing the
masses that a fabricated reality is 'reality'…that task requires
formidable mind control.”
~The Underground, Jon Rappoport
Early in this century, America was perceived as a bright, shinning light for the World. Like the mighty Eagle, one of her powerful symbols, she would soar to unbelievable heights and become a powerful World leader. However, while the country was growing and expanding internally, corporate and political America (in reality - the elite or alien influence) greedily and aggressively went abroad in pursuit of accessing the resources of smaller and undeveloped countries compromising their standards of living in many instances. History has recorded our participation in World events since our conception as a nation. How many wars did we fight in the name of peace?
We, as a species, are beginning to wake up to all the manipulation, corruption and deception, but it has been a slow process. The struggle is far from over. There is a wave of evil permeating the planet in its desperate attempt to overcome and crush the 'human spirit'. The psychopaths are throwing all they can at us to transform us into cyborgs and obedient slaves. How? Your obsession and consent to merge with 'AI technology'. That's right. Every smart appliance, tablet, phone, virtual reality game, implanted digital chip, etc. has been designed to control your mind and dictate your thinking and perception of life - a perverted simulation of all that is 'sacred'.
At this very moment, we are still victims of Archon-infected psychopaths and the tyranny of our own ignorance and complicity. Since the galactic gate has been tampered with, (CERN), planet Earth and its inhabitants are in grave danger. The demonic inter-dimensional aliens haven't any love for us; no concern for their host planet; and will in all likelihood, incinerate the entire planet and all of humanity if they can. They will use chemical weapons, which will not leave a person or creature standing. AI technology, geo-engineering, DARPA, remote viewing, virtual reality, nano-technology, HAARP, genetic foods, cloning, designer babies, chemical and germ warfare, diseases, cybernetics, vaccines, the Internet and its newest feature - the 'CLOUD' - are in full motion. With the acceleration of technology generated by insane psychopaths. A bleak picture emerges for planet Earth and the human species.
"Nonsense. This is ridiculous! It's just 'fake news' - conspiracy hype."
Really? As you live your everyday life, psychopaths are plotting against you in secrecy. They promise 'immortality' (Kurzweil). However, once you give your permission to be infected with nanobot technology, you may well exist forever - as a SLAVE ROBOT - and not a human with a 'free will' and soul. This is what happened to the 'greys'. They are cyborgs!!
Prepare yourself for the Singularity, where artificial intelligence merges with humanity to create super-humans as we learn to grow regenerative tissue, eradicate diseases with gene hacking techniques such as CRISPR-Cas9 and take our species beyond planet Earth. Welcome to the Science renaissance or better stated the 'Lucifer Agenda'. AI technology will generate breakthroughs in genomics, nanotechnology, and robotics (GNR) that will destroy our humanness and transform us into mechanical 'robots'.
The Tech gurus maintain that AI data will only be activated with a person’s consent. (Similar to Obama's lie about keeping your own 'doctor). However, their biometric database will incorporate images of faces, voice samples, retina recognition, and fingerprints. Here in the U.S., the DHS is planning a biometric facial recognition database for border checkpoints and the creation of a Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology (HART) to store 500 million identities (including many U.S. citizens’) within its system. HART will no doubt link into the FBI’s 'Next Generation Identification System' (NGI).
THE THREAT OF NANO TECHNOLOGY:
An article written for the Daily Mail (Meet the Nano-Spiders: The DNA Robots that Could One Day Be Walking through Your Body) reported on the creation by scientists of microscopic robots made of DNA molecules that can walk, turn, and even create tiny products of their own on a nano-scale assembly line.
Nanoparticles (NPs), sometimes referred to as ultra fine particles (UFP), are particles that range between 1 and 100 nanometers in size. According to the nanoscopic scale, one nanometer equals about a billionth of a meter. Now that's small. They also range in shapes, sizes and materials, and can express different properties under different circumstances, making them key to the development of new technologies.
A recent study published in an issue of Environmental Toxicology found that increased exposure to nanoparticles will potentially lead to elevated risk of cardiovascular diseases. As the consumption of nano-based products continues to rise at exponential rates, the research sheds light on the potential health hazards that new technology will have on our bodies. We must take these issues seriously and understand the ramifications of nanotechnology development.
The following information was compiled for your attention. True, some of it may have been written to inflate the power of the psychopaths to make us fearful and subservient, but we should pay attention. Even if many of the concepts are only in the 'thought' stage, they smell of danger and perversion.
AI brain chips are set to ‘evolve’ humanity into a ‘community of zombies’, a prominent neuroscientist has claimed. "Those implanting AI into their mind risk merging with machines to the point that humans and androids are indistinguishable from one another", the expert said.
It was recently revealed that a tech company backed by billionaire Elon Musk is developing a ‘brain-computer 'interface’ that could give people super intelligence and allow them to communicate telepathically. The new computers would be placed in human brains and interface directly with human thoughts, which some call 'neural lace'. The idea was first conceived by science fiction writer, M. Banks. Musk has strong opinions about artificial intelligence (AI), suggesting that it will 'summon the demon' and put humanity at risk turning all of us into 'house pets' of machines. He believes AI may even be more dangerous than nuclear weapons. Christians worry such technologies may be exploited by a coming 'World ruler' to cement his lock of power and nefarious control over the population.
Gene editing with CRISPR-Cas9:
The next step in human evolution will be worth $25 billion in the coming decade. As mankind pushes forward into a new evolution of the species, various associations and independent organizations have urged the importance of considering the ethical challenges of gene editing. Numerous ethical issues have been highlighted in relation to the germ-line editing process using CRISPR-Cas9. Editing human embryos may change the germ-line in a way which will affect future generations, their behavior patterns and characteristics without their consent. Thus the associated developments need to be handled with due ethical consideration. Another key challenge is the possibility of triggering unintended mutations during the treatment process, which can pose serious concerns for patients. The scientific community has made tremendous progress in this respect, and it is expected that these possibilities of unintended mutations will be minimized as far as possible in the near future.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has announced $65 million in funding to seven projects around the country – including one led by UC Berkeley – to improve the safety and accuracy of gene editing. UC Berkeley will work with UC San Francisco and Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California, to develop better ways to insert gene-editing molecules – including CRISPR-Cas9 – into living cells; explore applications of CRISPR proteins other than the popular Cas9, such as RNA-snipping Cas13a; discover more anti-CRISPR proteins that can be used to keep gene editing under tight control; and employ these new and improved tools. “If successful, we will create a revolutionary platform for using and controlling gene editing for both clinical and biotechnology wide-ranging applications. One of the first steps, DARPA reports, will be to create an 'implantable package'; that is to say, a device that can be put directly into the brains of those selected for the sensory rewiring. One of the proposed interfaces will result in the development of up to 100,000 unfettered, sub millimeter-sized ‘neurograin’ sensors implanted onto or into the cerebral cortex. Once the device is implanted in the brain of the subject, the military could use a relay station transceiver worn on the head to wirelessly power and communicate with the implanted device.
Shoukhrat Mitalipov of Oregon Health and Science University led an effort that involved changing the DNA of a large number of one-cell embryos with the gene- editing technique CRISPR, according to people familiar with the scientific results. Until now, American scientists have watched with a combination of awe, envy, and some alarm as scientists elsewhere were first to explore the controversial practice. To date, three previous reports of editing human embryos were all published by scientists in China. Now Mitalipov is believed to have broken new ground both in the number of embryos experimented upon and by demonstrating that it is possible to safely and efficiently modify genes in the inevitable journey toward the birth of the first genetically modified humans.
Scientists have long been able to make specific changes in the DNA code. Now, they’re taking the more radical step of starting over, and building redesigned life forms from scratch. Boeke, a researcher at New York University, directs an international team of 11 labs on four continents working to 'rewrite' the yeast genome, following a detailed plan they published in March. Their work is part of a bold and controversial pursuit aimed at creating custom-made DNA codes to be inserted into living cells to change how they function, or even provide a treatment for diseases. It could also someday help give scientists the profound and unsettling ability to create entirely new organisms. The genome is the entire genetic code of a living thing. "Learning how to make one from scratch means you really can construct something that’s completely new."
It could start with a programming error, a vulnerable factory password, or a drowsy software engineer who just needed one more cup of coffee before rolling out an OS update. This is how a stranger gets inside your brain. Welcome to the nascent, thorny field of medical implant security. As more and more patients receive implants (the global market is expected to balloon to more than $54 billion by 2025) to treat medical conditions from diabetes to deafness to heart failure, the implants them- selves are growing ever more complex. Already, manufacturers are producing implanted medical devices that can receive instructions wirelessly, either from a doctor or direct from the patients themselves. Today, your smart phone controls your stereo. Tomorrow, it could control your implants.
BYE BYE NORMAL SEX:
"Within three decades people will no longer be having sex to procreate", a professor from Stanford University has said. Hank Greely, the director of Stanford’s Law School’s Center for Law and the Biosciences, believes the reproductive process will begin with parents choosing from a range of embryos created in a lab with their DNA. Although this can already take place, Mr. Greely believes it will become far cheaper to do so and couples will opt for this method. The process involves taking a female skin sample to create stem cells, which is then used to create eggs. These eggs are then fertilized with sperm cells, resulting in a selection of embryos.
Fertility doctors in the U.K. are reportedly working on womb transplant procedures that would allow transgender people born as males, and also other men, to have babies. Moreover, National Health Service doctors told 'The Mail' that taxpayers should fund such transplants, citing equality enshrined in law. Dr. Amel Alghrani of Liverpool University said that such a transplant procedure is a real possibility, and explained that it could help not only transgender women have children, but also gay and straight men who wanted to experience the joys of carrying a child. Alghrani further suggested that such a move would revolutionize reproduction. For straight men who opt to have such a transplant, it would allow for couples to jointly share the reproductive burdens and joys of pregnancy.
A number of Christian ethicists have responded to a new report exploring the possible benefits and dangers of humans having sex with robots, including robots designed to look like children, stating that such sexual activities go against God’s design and moral ethics. The Foundation for Responsible Robotics recently released it’s first consultation report, titled 'Our Sexual Future With Robots', which explores several big questions in the growing field of humans having intimate relationships with robots, including whether sex with robots designed to look like children should be against the law. Tobias Winright, associate professor of Theological Ethics and the Maeder Endowed Associate Professor of Health Care Ethics in the Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics at Saint Louis University, told The Christian Post in an email Wednesday that there should be a ban on child sex robots.
Imagine a World where parents can give birth to 'super babies' with bones so strong they’re impervious to a surgical drill and a heart less prone to failure. A World where a child has DNA from three parents (or a human-animal mix). AWorld where it’s possible for a woman to have her favorite movie star’s child simply by collecting a few of his skin cells. Genetic technology is making it all a reality, horrifying some and heartening others. Reproductive advances are arriving so rapidly, we’ve already entered the realm of science-fiction and are on the verge of making truly astounding leaps. "Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ imagined a World of totalitarian population control; so we should take the warning to heart,” the nonprofit Center for Genetics and Society tweeted.
The following are excerpts from my publication 'En.ki: And the Lucifer Agenda':
"The hybrid/elite have recently added nanobots to the chemtrails, vaccines, certain prescription drugs, food, and water. To prepare humanity to serve the ‘Lucifer Agenda‘, they need thousands, perhaps millions of synthetic nanobots in our biological system as we rapidly approach the arrival of the Singularity. The psychopaths are making sure we get these bots in our blood system one way or another. If the area where you live is being sprayed with chemtrails, you are ‘breathing in’ these nanobots. There isn‘t any way to avoid it happening. If you see chemtrails in the sky, take vaccines and certain prescription drugs - particularly pain medication and psychiatric drugs - it‘s certain that your system is being invaded with nonobots! For those who haven‘t a clue, nanobots have many functions. They work as antennas, which means they are both receivers and transmitters of information when activated. Those in charge of this project can thus retrieve information from your Endocrine System, but they can also alter the functions of the Endocrine System as they please. This will be particularly important as the ‘Singularity’ approaches, and it won’t be long now. The goal is to have the Singularity in place by 2045 - or sooner."
Can NANOBOTS be removed?
Wes Penre (author of ‘Synthetic Super Intelligence & The Transmutation of Humankind: A Roadmap to the Singularity and Beyond‘) wrote an interesting article addressing this question. The following info includes excerpts (with some editing license):
“. . . nanobots will eventually replace the cells in our body. The Singularitists want the cells in our organs to be replaced with nano-sized artificial intelligence (AI). For example: if an older person’s organs begin to fail, younger cells will be retrieved, and the old, failing organ will be replaced by an entirely new organ. If a person needs a heart transplant, the new heart will be as young and vital as it was when the person was in his/her twenties or early thirties. The plan is to replace all our organs this way and thus give humans ‘synthetic’ eternal life. However there is a ‘catch‘. The new organs will consist of nanobots. The recipients will become cyborgs - half human - half machine. The synthetic nanobots in their system will be the ‘key’ to keeping humans trapped in 3rd dimension virtual reality ‘forever’ because cyborg bodies don’t die. The soul/mind/spirit body will be unable to leave his transformed cyborg body, and will remain imprisoned in the 3rd dimension forever, controlled by a Super Brain Quantum Computer (as mentioned in Chapter Two). Humanity will become a hive-mind species, which will be much easier to control than seven billion spirited, free-thinking soul individuals".
"Although the nanobots can’t be removed, there might be a solution to this problem. Nanobots operate on a quantum level. To solve this problem, we need to address the situation on a sub-quantum or soul level. Those in control must abide with the ‘Law of Free Will‘. As required by Universal Law, they must inform mainstream of their intentions and we must ‘consent’ to their agenda. They have used covert methods such as the media, movies, music, etc. to advise us of their ‘intent’ and manipulate us into submission. Unfortunately, many humans have done so by remaining passive and indifferent. Those infected with the Archon virus have embraced the perversion. But for the rest of us, the elite must have our ‘direct' or 'indirect’ consent to control us. If they go ahead without our consent, they are breaking the Law of Free Will, which they are reluctant to do because they will be prone to judgment from a higher authority if they are caught.”
Robert Stanley (Unicusmagazine.com) offered his spin:
“The First Hermetic Principle of Mentalism states ‘everything is mental‘, therefore subconscious and unconscious ‘consent’ counts especially if it outweighs our conscious ‘consent/dissent‘. We must work to align our unconscious and subconscious minds with our conscious mind. This is achieved by turning our thinking inwards in self-reflection, shadow work, and emotional process work when triggers arise. Going within in this manner makes the unconscious ’conscious‘, and allows us to psychologically ‘differentiate’ from the collective unconscious of humanity as a conscious individual (individuation). We can state all day long that we do not consent to their plans, but if our emotions and body, aka unconscious and subconscious minds still consent, we are in ’big trouble‘.”
We have nanobots in our system, but we don’t have to allow them to be activated - ever. Moreover, we don’t want anything to do with the Singularity. Therefore, I urge everybody to send out their intention as soon as possible.
Each person should individually send out a clear intention into the Universe and state that he/she is a sovereign spiritual being and doesn’t give their consent for any of the nanobots lodged in their bodies to be activated. Neither does he/she want to be part of the Singularity in any way, shape or form. Send this intention out as a clear, focused, ‘light thought’ and let it expand to include the entire Universe, so everyone out there can hear it.
(COLUMBUS, Ohio) Researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Ohio State's College of Engineering have developed a new technology: Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT). It can generate any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient’s own body. This technology may be used to repair injured tissue or restore function of aging tissue, including organs, blood vessels and nerve cells. Results of the regenerative medicine study were published in the journal 'Nature Nanotechnology'.
“By using our novel nanochip technology, injured or compromised organs can be replaced. We have shown that skin is a fertile land where we can grow the elements of any organ that is declining,” said Dr. Chandan Sen, director of Ohio State's Center for Regenerative Medicine & Cell Based Therapies, who co-led the study with L. James Lee, Professor of chemical and bio-molecular engineering with Ohio State’s College of Engineering in collaboration with Ohio State’s Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center.
Researchers studied mice and pigs in these experiments. They were able to reprogram skin cells to become vascular cells in badly injured legs that lacked blood flow. Within one week, active blood vessels appeared in the injured leg, and by the second week, the leg was saved. In lab tests, this technology was also shown to reprogram skin cells in the live body into nerve cells that were injected into brain-injured mice to help them recover from stroke.
“This is difficult to imagine, but it is achievable, successfully working about 98 percent of the time. With this technology, we can convert skin cells into elements of any organ with just one touch. This process only takes less than a second and is non-invasive, and then you're off. The chip does not stay with you, (not true) and the reprogramming of the cell starts. Our technology keeps the cells in the body under immune surveillance, so immune suppression is not necessary,” said Sen, who also is executive director of Ohio State’s Comprehensive Wound Center.
TNT technology has two major components:
(Be aware. Once inside your body, the nanochips can and will program you into 'subservient robots').
TNT doesn’t require any laboratory-based procedures and may be implemented at the point of care. The procedure is also non-invasive. The cargo is delivered by zapping the device with a small electrical charge that’s barely felt by the patient. “The concept is very simple,” Lee said. “As a matter of fact, we were even surprised how it worked so well. In my lab, we have ongoing research trying to understand the mechanism and do even better. So, this is the beginning; more to come.”
Suddenly the very real possibility has appeared on the horizon of the robots of the future manipulating human skin cells to create human sperm and human eggs, and from them, using the Ohio discovery of TNT as the basis, creating an entire human-robot baby whose embryo can be nurtured and carried through pregnancy by a mother surrogate. By injecting genetic code into skin cells à la TNT, the Ohio researchers have paved the way for the genetic code of a robot, containing some of the characteristics of the robot, to be passed on to its offspring along with human genetic code. This is how I believe it will be possible, within the foreseeable future, for humans and robots to make babies together.

Moving to another scenario, the psychopaths operating within the government, FDA , CMC, Big Pharma, and other secret cabal organizations, are playing a major role in the 'conspiracy' to destroy our species. While they covertly reap the monetary rewards of drug trafficking, causing a major crisis within our society, they have now legalized the use of marijuana in many states. HYPOCRITES!! Meanwhile, normal people who were legally prescribed pain medication are now deprived. They are being punished for the outrageous covert policies of the psychopaths, whose intent is to transform a huge segment of the population into zombies and the 'walking dead'.
Here's an eye-opener . . .
Services at the Coachella Valley Church begin and end with the Lord’s Prayer. In between, there is the sacrament. “Breathe deep and blow harder,” intoned Pastor Grant Atwell after distributing marijuana joints to 20 worshipers on a recent Sunday. “Nail the insight down, whether you get it from marijuana or prayer. Consider what in your own life you are thankful for.” A man wearing a “Jesus Loves You” baseball cap and toting a 'shofar', piped up. “Thank you, God, for the weed,” he called out. “I’m thankful for the spirit of cannabis,” a woman echoed from the back. “I am grateful to be alive,” said another young woman, adding that she had recently overdosed - on what, she did not say - for the third time.
Nanotech pioneer Robert Freitas believes that as the technology matures, every adult's appearance could be restored once a year to a biological age chosen by the individual. Freitas and futurist Ray Kurzweil discussed this wonder-science in a recent interview. Freitas has designed 'bots smaller than red blood cells that can travel through the human body destroying harmful pathogens and repairing faulty DNA. The tiny machines would be constructed of carbon atoms, and powered by utilizing glucose or natural sugars and oxygen from the body. Doctors would not only use nanorobots to correct problems like heart disease, cancer, or damages suffered from normal aging processes, but could also direct them to strengthen and enhance other parts of the body. These computer-guided creations would restore aging bones, muscles, eyesight, and teeth to a biologically perfect state. When finished, the 'smart' 'bots would exit the body through urine.
DON'T BELIEVE IT. This is all blatant B.S. As you read on, you will see how devious the psychopaths are. They are great liars!
Will the drug giants fill a role in tomorrow's nano-world? "Yes", Freitas says. "Issues such as IP rights, quality, design, software, and government regulation should allow 'Big Pharma' to retain a significant role in nano-machine manufacture, even in an era of widespread personal nano-factory use."
In addition, drug companies should assume liability for errors, experts say. Patients need a legally responsible entity they can sue in case of mistakes or defective products. No one wants 'robots gone wild' roaming through their bodies. Raw materials and labor for construction would be nearly cost-free; and even though Big Pharma gets part of the action, nano-robots will still be a very affordable health tool. Freitas offers an example of a medical nano-robot he designed that would act as a red blood cell. It consists of carbon atoms in a diamond pattern to create a spherical pressurized tank with 'molecular sorting rotors', which could grab and store oxygen and carbon dioxide molecules.
MONSANTO & GMO CROPS:
Data linking GMOs and pesticides to human health ailments continues to emerge, as a new report put together by the Ministry of Health in Cordoba, Argentina has found that increased levels of crop spraying in Argentina’s most extensively farmed areas has resulted in a large increase of cancer rates for those that live in the vicinity. According to the report, deaths from cancerous tumors have as much as doubled in areas where genetically modified (GM) crops are grown and agro-chemicals are used. That’s not really surprising, given the fact that numerous studies have linked them to cancer, and other detrimental health ailments. The highest death rate was recorded in the ‘Pampa Gringa’ area. This is where most GM crops are grown, and the most pesticides are used. It makes up a large portion of the Cordoba region. This area and other areas in the region have cancer rates that are way above the national average.
While chicken, beef and fish are given the all clear, some types of meats simply don’t sit well. From horse to dog, most menus have their limits. But now, some scientists are predicting that a radical new food trend could be about to emerge. It’s known as 'synthesized cannibalism' and could soon see the World biting into juicy, cruelty free burgers crafted from lab-grown human meat. “In the West, this is a huge taboo,” comments Dr. Bill Schutt, author of 'Eat Me: A Natural and Unnatural History of Cannibalism'. While there is a serious 'yuk factor' to consider, some experts maintain that technically there’s nothing wrong with eating lab-grown humans. Dr. John Loike, director of special programs at Columbia’s Center for Bioethics muses, “The yuck factor is an emotional, not necessarily logical, response.”
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the future. But do we want it to be? Millions are being poured into research to push technology into the realms of the most outlandish science fiction, but some are concerned about where all this is leading us. Notable scientists and technology pioneers such as Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have all voiced fears that AI could pose serious risks to humanity, possibly in ways we can’t even imagine. The weaponization of AI is one area of technology development from which much of this fear seems to extend. Musk, Hawking and Wozniak, along with Norm Chomsky, have all signed another Future of Life Institute open letter on autonomous weaponry which reads “If any major military power pushes ahead with AI weapons development, a global arms race is virtually inevitable, and the endpoint of this technological trajectory is obvious: autonomous weapons will become the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow.”
Author comment: The U. S., Russia, and China are in competition as to who will create the most advanced 'killer robots' and war technology.
Are you ready for a world where technology and man are one? Science and technology have brought us to the point of ‘cyber-physical systems’ which will soon exist, and this new reality is rapidly unfolding. We may be decades away from being totally wiped out by a sentient AI system like Skynet, but some experts think that ‘The Reckoning’ is closer than we think. According to The Daily Mail, the European Parliament is taking the rise of the machines pretty seriously. In a 17-2 vote, it decided to begin developing a set of regulations aimed at controlling the rise of artificial intelligence. Perhaps the most striking aspect of these guidelines is the planned implementation of ‘electronic personhood‘, which would ensure a set of rights for the most advanced kinds of AI. Think about it. If robots eventually become as lifelike as the machines in the Western world, a set of basic rights would be essential in preventing the kind of deranged robot abuse depicted in the first season of HBO’s hit show. In fact, if robots do ever become that advanced, the social and cultural implications will be massive.
Researchers have found an imbalance in the brain chemistry of young people addicted to smart phones and the Internet, according to a study presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). According to a recent Pew Research Center study, 46 percent of Americans say they could not live without their smart phones. While this sentiment is clearly hyperbole, more and more people are becoming increasingly dependent on smart phones and other portable electronic devices for news, information, games, and even the occasional phone call. Along with a growing concern that young people, in particular, may be spending too much time staring into their phones instead of interacting with others, trigger questions as to the immediate effects on the brain and the possible long-term consequences of such habits.
For some die-hard techs, using neural interfaces to merge with AI is the inevitable next step in humankind’s evolution. But a group of 27 neuroscientists, ethicists, and machine learning experts have highlighted the myriad ethical pitfalls that could be waiting. The authors say we are headed towards a future where we can decode and manipulate people’s mental processes, communicate telepathically, and technologically augment human mental and physical capabilities. “Such advances could revolutionize the treatment of many conditions and transform human experience for the better,” they write. But the technology could also exacerbate social inequalities and offer corporations, hackers, governments, or anyone else new ways to exploit and manipulate people. And it could profoundly alter some core human characteristics: private mental life, individual agency, and an understanding of individuals as entities bound by their bodies.
Forget about today’s modest incremental advances in artificial intelligence, such as the increasing abilities of cars to drive themselves. Waiting in the wings might be a groundbreaking development: a machine that is aware of itself and its surroundings, and that could take in and process massive amounts of data in real time. Conscious machines would also raise troubling legal and ethical problems. Would a conscious machine be a 'person' under law and be liable if its actions hurt someone, or if something goes wrong? To think of a more frightening scenario, might these machines rebel against humans and wish to eliminate us altogether? If yes, they represent the culmination of evolution.
"Once we eventually figure out how to connect our brains to computers, most thinking will happen in our synthetic computer brains", futurist Ray Kurzweil stated. In a post for Singularity University’s YouTube channel, Kurzweil, a futurist for Google by day, said that he expects humans will be able to back up their brains to the 'Cloud'. He has predicted that the Singularity, (the moment when technology enters a cycle of runaway advancement beyond human control), will occur by 2045. This new era will change the human brain. Instead of being stuck with a limited number of biological brain functions, the singularity will allow us to directly experience the benefits of the law of accelerating returns. Eventually, all our thoughts will happen in the computers merged to our brains. (WELCOME TO THE BORG)!
Computers have without a doubt revolutionized modern society. They’re everywhere: our offices and homes, our pockets; even in our kitchen appliances. As for the next place computer technology could be headed, you already have the basic component - your DNA. It sounds strange, but researchers at the University of Manchester are working on turning strands of DNA into the next basis for computing. Scientists have actually created a DNA-based computing device that grows as it computes. While our current computers have a finite capacity for computations, DNA computers could be designed to self-replicate, making them able to create more and more and more.
DARPA, the technical-research arm of the Pentagon, is leading the way in a mission to program the human brain. What could go wrong? In a word, everything. Here is a DARPA release (5/27/14) on the upcoming ‘brain-mapping’ plan, in accordance with Obama’s initiative aimed at preventing violence through improved mental health otherwise known as 'Clockwork Orange' . . ."developing closed-loop therapies that incorporate recording and analysis of brain activity with near-real-time neural stimulation.” Translation: Reading myriad brain activities as they occur, and influencing that activity with various inputs/interferences - drugs, electrical currents, nano-entities, etc.
Here’s another DARPA quote. This one lays out the foundation for their mission:
“…The program also aims to take advantage of neural plasticity, a feature of the brain by which the organ’s anatomy and physiology can alter over time to support normal brain function. Plasticity runs counter to previously held ideas that the adult brain is a ‘finished’ entity that can be statically mapped. Because of plasticity, researchers are optimistic that the brain can be trained or treated to restore normal functionality following injury or the onset of neuropsychological illness."
Neural plasticity - The idea that brain activity is always changing and, therefore, can be externally molded by operators to fit a conception of ‘normalcy‘ (whatever that is) or in essence - whatever ‘authorities’ decide it is. Chilling? Of course.In the long run, this has nothing to do with ‘recovery from brain injuries‘. That’s the cover story. The real goal is programming the brain to fit certain parameters of functioning. Those parameters will certainly exclude: rebellion, independence, free thinking, etc.
Here is a quote from a journal article, 'The Plastic Human Brain
Cortex' (Annual Review of Neuroscience, Vol. 28: 377-401, July 2005)
Modulate them? Achieve the best behavioral outcome? Who defines that? Obviously, not the individual. Notice the point of view: intervention as a 'given'. The brain will not be allowed to function on its own. Behind all brain research lies this premise. It’s no surprise that, in this technological age, the preferred method of mind control would involve an invasion by the 'experts'.
There are many, many brain-research professionals, and millions of lay people, who believe that intervention is justified because it corrects a chemical imbalance in the brain. This is a myth. Dr. Ronald Pies, the editor-in-chief emeritus of the Psychiatric Times, laid the myth to rest in the 'July 11, 2011' issue of the Times with this staggering and stark admission:
“In truth, the ‘chemical imbalance’ notion (of mental disorders) was always a kind of urban legend - never a theory seriously propounded by well-informed psychiatrists.”
Intervention is all about brain control - not brain health. And neural plasticity, contrary to the official propaganda, is no great discovery. Any human can change his own brain readout patterns with the simple act of 'thinking'. But the brain-controllers want to control the sequence. They want to decide how B, D, E, A, B, F should perform and then perhaps delete C altogether because they find it counter-productive and disruptive.
The fact is, the individual non-material being (you) changes brain activity all the time. The brain is eminently built to allow this to happen across a very wide range of possibility. What DARPA’s program entails is altering that fundamental relationship between you and your brain. That’s the bottom line. The alteration will throw up roadblocks. It will shrink the sum of what your brain can do. The ongoing DARPA brain-programming mission isn’t merely a two-year program or a five-year program. It’s permanent. It’s the gateway to a controlled society. And it’s perfectly understandable that this project would come from DARPA, which is an arm of the Pentagon, which is the foremost proponent of 'military thought' in the World. The military is interested in, and devoted to, the issuing of commands and obedience to those commands. Stimulus response. The military's vision of society is to define the functions of each citizen and then coordinate those functions to produce overall harmony through obedience. Since this is the true definition of insanity, and since it is impossible to secure, over the long-term, they need human cooperation to build such a civilization with the brain as target. Train the brain - train the collective.
PROTECT YOUR GARDEN:
Here's a laugh. DARPA wants to bioengineer plants so that the military can turn foliage into spies. They call it the 'Advanced Plant Technologies' (APT) program. The end goal is organic 'discreet, self-sustaining sensors' that can monitor and remotely report threats based on 'environmental stimuli'. The agency claims it sees flora as the next generation of intelligence gatherers though at the moment DARPA only envisions their secret-agent plants being used to detect electromagnetic waves, pathogens, radiation, chemicals, and nuclear threats. DARPA also believes the technology could be used by civilians, providing the example of communities that want to use plants to detect landmines. (Who's smoking the weed)?
SPY WARE & BIG BROTHER:
'The Internet of All Things' The revolution in household appliance integration with the Internet is a nightmare of privacy violation and data harvesting. The past decade has seen a revolution in micro processing, Internet connectivity, and widespread adoption of new technologies. Human beings are connected to vast sources of data and discourse through an increasing number of outlets. Phones and tablets, the first frontier of smart, social technology beyond traditional computers, have highlighted questions of privacy in media, discussion, and politics. As the micro-processor revolution rages on, more and more household objects will begin to collect data, communicate with the Internet, and force us to evaluate our positions on the fine line between privacy and utility.
“The automation of factories has already decimated jobs in traditional manufacturing and the rise of artificial intelligence is likely to extend this job destruction deep into the middle classes, with only the most caring, creative or supervisory roles remaining.” ~ Stephen Hawking
To be fair, there were statements
that offered promise to society - if they are true . . .
Perhaps there are other
positive programs that I am not aware of. I hope so. 'Smart skin' will give artificial
limbs the sense of touch. Researchers in South Korea have developed a
‘smart skin’ that could give people with prosthetic limbs a sense of
touch. In its current form, it doesn’t look like much more than a
thick layer of plastic draped over a robotic hand, but it’s
implications for the future of prosthetics could be much more
significant than its appearance would suggest. The artificial skin can
process pressure, temperature and humidity, making it suitable for a
range of real-world situations including handshaking, typing, gripping,
and sensing dry or wet surfaces. The smart skin even has features built
in to make it feel more human-like, including a heating system to make
it as warm as living tissue and a similar elasticity and texture to that
of human skin. “For prosthetic devices and artificial skin to feel
natural, their temperature profile must be controlled to match that of
the human body,” the authors write in their paper, published in 'Nature

A groundbreaking gene therapy treatment which boosts a patient’s own immune cells has been shown to clear disease from one third of terminal patients. The U.S. pharmaceutical company - Kite Pharma - released results from the first six months of its trial of the new treatment, called CAR-T cell therapy. Some 36 per cent of the 101 patients on the trial were still in complete remission at six months, and eight in 10 saw their cancer shrink by at least half during the study. “The numbers are fantastic,” said Dr Fred Locke, a blood cancer expert at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa who co-led the study. “These are heavily treated patients who have no other options.”
Unfortunately, these programs are too few and far between.
