Chimeras are a part of mythology; these creatures were part goat, lion, and serpent. A “Griffin” is the most well-known chimera of mythology. There are also chimera-like creatures that are spoken of in the Bible such as the Lion Men of Moab. A few days ago, China announced a breakthrough in genetic research where a monkey was injected with cells that would make it glow to help identify whether or not the additional cells had multiplied. The long-tailed macaque’s cells were made from an embryo injected with other genetically distinct cells. The secrets of the creation process are revealing themselves and perhaps it is time we realize that there may be a halfway point between the romanticism of the religious story of creation and the scientific method in which creation manifests and data confirms. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about PUPPY MONKEY BABY – WHY SO SERIAL?
In the world of cryptozoology, there is every kind of beast that the human mind can conceive. Underwater monsters, goat-sucking creatures; things being spotted in the woods that just aren’t a part of normal animal development.
Sometimes we can speculate that perhaps these creatures are something that has skipped the evolutionary chain.
I know that many can be skeptical but I remember the first time I inquired about the Chupacabra. I put in a call to the Puerto Rico Department of Agriculture. It was in 1995 or 1996 and I was reading about the creature in a Spanish magazine called Karma 7.
So I wanted to be one of the first American reporters to talk about the creature– It was described as being a small creature with sharp teeth, spiked running down its back with wings.
I described it to them, and they knew about it. However, the story they gave me is that many people who have seen it claimed that it looked like a mutant dog of some kind.
The guy on the phone said that they were concerned that it was a Chimera that was accidentally released from an illegal lab that did experiments on animals.
I hadn’t heard the word Chimera in a long time.
Chimeras are a part of mythology; creatures that were part goat, lion and serpent. If you have seen an artist’s interpretation of a Griffin, that is basically the most well-known mythology chimera.
There are chimera-like creatures that are spoken of in the bible.
The Old Testament speaks of the Lion men of Moab.
Based on 2 Samuel 23:20, it specifies that the lion men or Ariels were killed along with a lion, does it imply that they were genetically modified or is it about their characteristics in their fighting styles and strategy?
Of course, there are various beasts described in the Book of Revelation. The artistic depiction of Satan is also a Chimera. A horned being with the legs of a goat.
Ancient Egyptian artwork has always shown hybrid men. We see a man with a bird for a head; sometimes they have crocodile heads and Anubis is a man with a hyena or dog’s head– Anubis is a god of the underworld. Sort of an ancient ultraterrestrial.
In Greek mythology, Cerberus was the chimera guard dog of Hades. The creature was there to prevent the dead from leaving. He was the offspring of the monsters Echidna and Typhon and was usually described as having three heads, a serpent for a tail, and snakes protruding from his body.
There is also the minotaur –half man, half bull, the centaur half man, half horse, Pan half man, half goat and mermaids – half human half fish.
We can write all of this off as artistic license on the part of ancient scribes — but now with stem cell research and epigenetics, we are seeing the impossible — become possible.
A few days ago, China announced a breakthrough in cell research where a Monkey was injected with cells that would make it glow.
The resulting animal had a high proportion of green-tinged tissue produced by the stem cells, including in its eyes, fingers, tail and up to 90 percent of its brain. The monkey died after 10 days.
Researchers in China announced the ‘long-sought’ birth of these creatures, sharing images of a long-tailed macaque whose cells were made from an embryo injected with other, genetically distinct cells.
Stem cells modified to glow green were injected into a number of morula embryos – those that are four to five days old – to help identify whether or not the additional cells had multiplied.
The contribution of stem cells in different tissue types ranges from 21% to 92%, the Chinese team said.
Researchers have long attempted the process in primates, having previously created chimera in rats and mice.
In 2012 scientists created three rhesus monkeys that were technically chimeras, but the embryos were created at the earlier totipotent stage, where the cells can evolve into anything, including the placenta.
This experiment was conducted in my home state of Oregon.
What was so strange was that the little monkeys appeared on the front page of the Oregonian and they were so adorable–but many had the opinion that they were Frankenstein-like. abominable creatures that needed to be destroyed.
One was named Hex, the other was Chimero and the third was called Roku. The headline read “Lab brings Chimera Myth To Life.”
The breakthrough was that scientists in Oregon created these monkeys in a lab out of cells from multiple embryos, not only were the monkey’s clones, but they were clones made from cells of other monkeys.
Scientists have stated that these techniques could one day create monkeys with humanlike tissues or diseases, which would let biomedical researchers more precisely screen drugs and test new therapies for afflictions such as ALS.
As with all of these so-called breakthroughs, it is hard not to stop and wonder about the morality and ethics that go into these experiments.
Scientists have long been constrained to mice and rats for this work. Progress in creating chimeras of our close evolutionary neighbors, non-human primates, has been much slower.
The secrets of the creation process are revealing themselves and perhaps it is time that we realize that there may be that halfway point between the romanticism of the religious story of creation and the scientific method in which creation manifests and data confirms.
In 1997, we started talking about the possibility that mankind was about to map the human genome. At the time we were all being subjected to a lot of predictive programming about the dangers and or obstacles that were already approximated to come with DNA or genetic sequencing.
When launched in 1990, the Human Genome Project was heralded as a scientific endeavor that would provide answers to some of the most vexing questions about how genetic makeup influences human health.
In 2017 pig embryos that had been injected with human stem cells when they were only a few days old began to grow organs containing human cells. These were considered Pig-human chimera cells.
These human-pig “chimeras” were not allowed to develop past the fetal stage, but the experiment suggests such creations could eventually be used to grow fully human organs for transplant.
Human-pig chimeras could also be used for research into prenatal development and to test experimental drugs. A human lung in a pig might show more accurately the effect of a compound intended to treat, say, cystic fibrosis.
Do we condemn this even if it means that it saves lives?
Scientists not involved in the chimera experiment, reported in Cell, said it answered a long-standing question. “What would happen if human stem cells were implanted in the early embryo of a large animal, not a mouse or rat?”
We now can understand what a Manimal is — something that we have seen in movies like the 1933 film “Island of Lost Souls” or the “Island of Dr. Moreau.”
The plot for those who don’t know: Dr. Moreau vivisects animals, turning them into men. The experiments are not complete. The animals still retain some remnant of the beast even when they seem more like Humans.
They are given laws to follow:
Not to go on all-fours; that is the Law. Are we not Men?
Not to suck up Drink; that is the Law. Are we not Men?
Not to eat Flesh or Fish; that is the Law. Are we not Men?
Not to claw Bark of Trees; that is the law. Are we not Men?
Not to chase other Men; that is the Law. Are we not Men?
So the Law is put in to tell them know how to behave. If you recite the Law often enough, maybe those habits will get ingrained. You’ll stop going on all fours and clawing the bark of trees and trying to eat the other newly created humans. The beasts learn to think of Moreau as God, punishing violations of the Law. His is the house of Pain.
When the created beings disobey the Law, Moreau causes pain. The created beings thus have to deny their true natures to conform to a painful process of becoming something they are not.
By the way — this was a prophetic novel by none other than H.G. Wells.
Here we are a century later, cloning, and creating Chimeras in a Transhuman, Posthuman world.
In 2018 more mad science was announced again — from China.
A Chinese scientist helped create genetically-edited twins who were resistant to HIV.
Other scientists are concerned that this kind of genetic editing could cause genetic defects that last generations or harm other genes.
Growing an edited embryo into a fully-fledged adult human wouldn’t just remove a health problem — or, in the dystopian future model, create an augmented human. It would leave lasting changes that are passed on; something that many scientists say is desirable in the case of awful health problems, but much more questionable in the case of enhancements.
In Aldous Huxley’s novel, Brave New World, society is rigidly split into five castes determined through embryonic modification. Much of the consternation surrounding the idea of “designer babies” is that germline editing could make Huxley’s dystopian vision of the future a reality.
At the moment, the prospect of a world populated by genetically modified humans is barely remaining only in the pages of science fiction. However, the announcement from China about the genetically modified monkey launches a debate into a nonfictional reality where artificial improvement will affect every living thing.
Business Finance News also reports that DARPA has begun a heavily funded project to “enhance human ability in war zones, by altering the genetic code of their soldiers.” The aim is to achieve battlefield supremacy by making soldiers who lack empathy and are smarter, more focused, and much stronger than enemy counterparts.
The research is taking place under a relatively new scientific field called genetic engineering, wherein scientists conduct research and experiment with the “cookbook” of a person’s genetic makeup.
Business Finance News stated:
“All life forms have their recipe, and just like food, there are a finite number of ingredients to choose from. The combination of different ingredients in different proportions makes different life forms. Genetic engineers are practically capable of making glow-in-the-dark babies, by simply adding certain genetic codes of jellyfish into the human genetic code.”
The research suggests that DARPA’s so-called super soldiers are now being triggered in the part of the brain that is responsible for empathy and mercy; scientists have found that it can be effectively shut off using gene therapy. This would essentially create a soldier who is oblivious to fear, fatigue and emotions.
However, what makes this even more disturbing, Business Finance News noted, is the “Human Assisted Neutral Devices program” that focuses on brain control. The result could be a next-generation biological war “machine” controllable via a sophisticated “joystick.”
In other words, a soldier guided by remote control.
According to Wired Magazine, DARPA awarded Texas A&M University’s Institute for Preclinical Studies a $9.9 million contract to develop medical treatments that would extend a “golden period” when traumatically injured troops would have the best chance of surviving massive blood loss. Researchers were aware that the evacuation and treatment of such individuals in the thick of battle within the all-important one-hour window is often impossible.
DARPA has handed out a $40 million grant to California and Pennsylvania Universities to develop memory-controlling implants.
This reality is Transhumanism for the battlefield; part of what is being called the Human Enhancement Revolution.
We now know enough about biology, neuroscience, computing, robotics, and materials to hack the human body, reshaping it in our image. And defense-related applications are a major driver of science and technology research.
Last year President Biden signed the “Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy.”
Specified in that order is the development of genetic engineering technologies and techniques “to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers,” as well as genetic technologies to “unlock the power of biological data” using “computing tools and artificial intelligence”
The reason he signed the order was to fast-track the pipeline of mRNA shots and other gene therapies that will further the transhumanist agenda to create augmented humans and bring us into a post-human world.
In science like this, we would be very cautious because of the threat to human life and the gene pool.
Such caution is now being thrown to the wind, and it’s not difficult to predict there will be disastrous ramifications. Millions will die from poorly tested gene therapies and, eventually, medical research and allopathic medicine will both cease to exist, as survivors vow to have nothing to do with that murderous cabal ever again.
The only way they might be able to keep going is if they are in control of people’s brain function and/or able to force drugs under threat of death, or worse — neither of which is impossible at this point, we see how the threat of death forced thousands of people into getting untested vaccines that have been proven to manipulate human DNA.
In the meantime, we’re looking at a cornucopia of mRNA shots coming soon if the World Health Organization has its way.
In a British defense report called “Human Augmentation — The Dawn of a New Paradigm, a Strategic Implications Project points to the scientific goals of the U.K. and German defense ministries, and they basically mirror that of the U.S. DOD. On page 12 of the report, the concept of the human body as a platform is described, and how various parts of the human platform can be augmented. For example:
Physical performance such as strength, dexterity, speed and endurance can be enhanced, as well as physical senses. One example given is gene editing for enhanced sight
Psychological performance such as cognition, emotion and motivation can be influenced to activate and direct desired behavior. Examples of cognitive augmentation include improving memory, attention, alertness, creativity, understanding, decision-making, intelligence and vigilance
Social performance — “The ability to perceive oneself as part of a group and the readiness to act as part of the team” — can be influenced. Communication skills, collaboration and trust are also included here
They list several different ways to influence the physical, psychological and social performance of the “human platform,” including genetics (germline and somatic modification), synthetic biology, invasive (internal) and noninvasive (external) brain interfaces, passive and powered exoskeletons, drugs and nanotechnology, neurostimulation, augmented reality technologies such as external holograms or glasses with built-in artificial intelligence, and sensory augmentation technologies such as external sensors or implants.
As noted in this report, “Human augmentation has the potential to … change the meaning of what it means to be a human.” This is precisely what Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), has stated is the goal of The Fourth Industrial Revolution.16
WEF has been at the center of global affairs for more than 40 years, and if you take the time to dive into WEF’s Fourth Industrial Revolution material, you realize that it’s all about transhumanism. It’s about the merger of man and machine.
This is a dystopian future that WEF and its global allies are actively trying to implement, whether humanity at large agrees with it or not. Importantly, the “Human Augmentation” report readily admits that human augmentation can “directly enhance behavior.”
In the shorter term, it’s crucial to realize that the fast-tracking of “genetic engineering technologies and techniques to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers” means they’re going to cut corners. Loads of them.
Testing is going to be done on the population at large, just as they’ve done with the COVID jabs. The results of such experimentation are relatively predictable. People will be seriously injured, and many will die. So, think long and hard before you agree to take any of these forthcoming gene therapies.
