8.3 – ALIENS & ROBOTS (8.7.15)

MIND UPLOADING [4g]

February 8, 1957. Washington, D.C. At Walter Reed General Hospital, Hungarian scientist John Von Neumann, the man who came up with the idea for self-replicating robots, dies at the age of 53. At the time of his death, he was working on a manuscript titled The Computer and the Brain. At only 82 pages, the text was far from finished, but some have proposed that Von Neumann was exploring the possibility of reproducing a human mind entirely on a computer. For transhumanists, this opens the door for what many consider one of the most radical innovations, mind uploading.

“Companies have actually built what are called neural interfaces, where they have wired computers into people’s brains. They believe that they can map the entire human brain and all of the data that’s stored in it and then replicate it into an artificial intelligent silicone-based system, where it can then be stored and essentially never die.”

– Mark Dice
(Author, Big Brother: The Orwellian Nightmare Come True)

Is it possible that an entirely nonbiological being could have sentience? And if extraterrestrials have been visiting Earth for thousands of years, might it be more likely that they are actually fully robotic beings?

“Biological entities may actually be a rarity in the cosmos. We may be largely living in a Universe where the real intelligences out there, and perhaps coming down here, are robots.”

Nick Pope (British Ministry of Defense, 1985-2006),
(Author, Open Skies, Closed Minds)

“There are some who believe that machines may have already achieved a level of intelligence vastly in excess of our own and that they may be giving us a trail of bread crumbs to help us rebuild the technology that would get us to become enough like them that we could eventually be merged into their society in some fashion.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

Could extraterrestrials who have been observing mankind for thousands of years have led us to this point because they desire not just that we achieve advanced technology but that we actually become the technology? And if humans are the creation of extraterrestrials, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, might they have initially created us as biological entities in order to limit our lifespan until we are ready to become like them?

“There are very interesting things about how similar to a machine the body is. If you injure certain parts of the brain, the body breaks down, like a machine. You can injure a tendon or a joint, and then that part of the machine doesn’t function anymore. So, we have to look at the possibility that life is not necessarily what we’ve considered it to be. There is a possibility that if we create computers with enough complexity that consciousness could actually breathe life into that inanimate substance and you have a robotic consciousness that has become something we would think of as a person.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“In ancient story after ancient story, we see references of extraterrestrials seeking to influence the human body, to augment it, especially with technology. With today’s transhuman movement, you have to ask, is this possibly part of an extraterrestrial agenda to influence humankind through the implantation of technology with the human body? And, if so, what is the purpose? Is it to accelerate our abilities or is it an effort to control humanity? Ultimately, time will tell the answer to those questions.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Is it possible that otherworldly beings are leading mankind not only to evolve on Earth but ultimately to a destiny of joining them in the stars as nonbiological entities? And could it be that our increased reliance on computers, cell phones, the Internet, and even synthetic body parts is part of a vast extraterrestrial plan, one that will see humans become more and more assimilated into the very technology we have grown so dependent upon? Perhaps mankind’s destiny is not to have a close encounter with its ancestor but with our future selves. And perhaps when that day comes, human beings as we now know them will be thought of as little more than obsolete operating systems.
