8.3 – ALIENS & ROBOTS (8.7.15)

TRANSHUMANISM [4f]

September 2003. Clemson University, South Carolina. Dr. Thomas Boland files the first patent for inkjet 3-D printing of viable cells. Already a multibillion dollar industry, this process involves placing biological materials into modified ink cartridges and printing onto bio paper made of soy and collagen.

“What we see is little petri dishes with a culture medium like agar in them. And then you have a little nozzle that comes over and spray-paints these little hexagons onto the agar. And within only a few minutes, they start growing cells, and they become these brown spots, which are the beginnings of human livers.”

“Dr. Boland has some very interesting research looking at printing cell tissue. I think that opens up some very interesting ideas, about how to bio-manufacture things. At some point, it’ll have application in the field of robotics, especially as we start combining devices with the human body.”

Nic Radford
(Chief Technology Officer, Houston Mechatronics, Inc.)

Many believe this is the first step in constructing engineered human organs. Ultimately, the goal is to do the same for every other part of the human body. But there is a movement to go much further in merging biology with technology. It is called transhumanism.

“The ultimate goal of the transhumanists is to become an immortal god. And, literally, these people believe that they will merge with technology and become cyborgs. They believe that they will unlock the immortality anti-aging systems encoded into the human race and that that will be the supposed final evolution of human beings as they ascend into godhood.”

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

“Transhumanists generally acknowledge that human beings are the products of biological evolution but we’ve now reached a stage in our development where there’s an open question about where we should go. On the one hand, our biological background could be taken as a kind of platform to go forward, manipulating genes in various ways. But on the other hand, we might think about ourselves merging more directly with silicon-based technologies.”

Steve Fuller, Ph.D.
(Author, Humanity 2.0: What it Means to be Human)

“We see the rollout of these head-mounted displays like Google Glass, where people are now wearing a computer on their head. The Apple Watch now is sort of merging man with machine, and, instead of sitting down at a computer now, people are just wearing their computer. We see artificial hearts, we see pacemakers. These are sort of the early precursors to this transhumanist transformation.”

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

“There certainly is a merging between technology and biology, and we are experiencing it right now.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Some experts believe that by the year 2050, scientists and engineers will have unlocked the secrets of immortality through the production of artificial organs and silicone-based structures. Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that considering the fact that we are experimenting with transhumanism today, it is very possible a more advanced extraterrestrial race has already achieved similar technological advancements.

“A civilization millions of years older than us could have actually evolved much beyond the baby steps that we’re taking right now.”

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

“If we are doing this, is it possible that another civilization has done the same thing but perhaps thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of years before us? When we look at some of these ancient texts that we have, we’re always talking about Ancient Astronauts that came to visit us. But what if we were visited by machines? And so the idea then arises: will we ourselves be able to become cyborgs?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“It’s possible that other civilizations may have decided they would be able to essentially live indefinitely this way. And the more that we look at the way in which technology and biology are fusing together, the more that we can confront the notion that, with the advancements of computer power, we could have sentient beings that are significantly more advanced.”

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

Is it possible that extraterrestrials have not merely sent intelligent robots to Earth in their place but that they themselves have actually evolved beyond biological bodies? And, if so, what might this mean for the future of the human race?
