9.3 – THE NEXT HUMANS (5.20.16)

CYBORG SPACE TRAVEL [4g]

New York City, 1961. Psychopharmacologist Nathan S. Kline, and cybernetic mathematician Manfred Clynes, co-publish a paper about human space travel entitled “Drugs, Space, and Cybernetics.” The two coin the term “cyborg” – an enhanced human beings specifically doctored to survive in extraterrestrial environments without a space suit. In their paper, they detailed various ways in which to modify the human body for survival beyond Earth, and later served as the inspiration for NASA’s study “Engineering Man for Space.”

“Our bodies are not suited for living in space. After only a few days, we experience muscle and bone loss. One has to wonder if extraterrestrials experience the same type of problems.”

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

“I do think that any beings that are able to cross the cosmos and visit this planet will have learned how to self-direct their evolution, to survive in deep space for extraordinary long periods of time. Those beings, more than likely, will be, at least, bio-digital, meaning that they have merged with their technologies. Or they will be pure digital beings. These may be robots or cyborgs.”

Gray Scott (Futurist)

Could extraterrestrials have used the same cyborg technologies we are just now developing? If so, might our push towards transhumanism really be inspired by innate desire to travel further into space and seek out our creators?

“There has been a consistent path towards the fusion of human and machine throughout all of our history – this idea that we could somehow advance ourselves for the betterment of humankind through this merger of technology and biology.”

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

“I think that what will happen is that our biological bodies will be able to be perfected, any imperfections corrected. Our mental abilities and lifespan will be enhanced considerably. And we will be ready, ourselves, to go into space and ultimately join our creators in the stars.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Is it possible extraterrestrials left us with the tools to mold ourselves into a truly transhuman species one without any limits, capable of traveling the stars at will? Or could nanomachines, artificial intelligence, and the digital revolution render humans obsolete? Our lives and the very nature of our existence may balance on this choice, a choice that is coming much sooner than we think.
