MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
Throughout history, humans have changed the world around them – they cleared forests, domesticated plants and animals, dug irrigation canals and built roads, bridges and cities. But humans did not have the power to change themselves.
We still have the same bodies and minds we had in the Stone Age.
In the coming years, humans will of course continue to change the outside world, but for the first time in history, they will also gain the power to reshape their own bodies and minds with the use of technologies that will become part of the brain and the body.
When it comes to Artificial Intelligence, we may all be suffering from the fallacy of availability: thinking that creating intelligence is much easier than it is, because we see examples all around us. In a recent poll, machine intelligence experts predicted that computers would gain human-level ability around the year 2050, and superhuman ability less than 30 years after but it appears that there seems to be an exponential race to prepare humans for a great transition –where your identity, residual self-image, genotype and phenotype will be quantified and collected in order to propagate the future human — or H+.43
It is beginning to look a lot like, by the time 2022 rolls around, most of the Western world will be required to show proof of genotype and phenotype as it pertains to your health and status.
This is not unlike all of the science fiction warnings about how a futures dystopia will include the segregation of the thinkers and the workers. Movies like Judge Dredd, Gattaca, Soylent Green and Metropolis are examples of life imitating art — but not in a good way.
Writers like H.G. Welles, Orwell and Huxley were insiders and were able to piece together various ideas as to how we would end up if we handed over our livelihoods and humanity to technocratic governments that see us as cows or even sheep to meet their needs.
At the social level, hatred, envy, greed and strife have now multiplied exponentially in the environment we are in now. Crime increases faster than the population can keep up with. Combined with wars, insurrections, political purges, and a scarcity economy looming over are heads multiplied millions of people across the globe are now without adequate food or shelter due to political actions.
And then, of course, drought, famine, plague and natural disasters still take an annual toll in lives and suffering. This, too, seems to be increasing.
While acts of God are random – or so we think the other problems can be solved.
But of course, due to political infighting we will have a difficult time digging ourselves out what can be seen as a prison existence.
It is hard to open the public’s eyes as to the path they are starting down.
It doesn’t make any sense that we have opted for self-annihilation— and that is because we have given a hall pass to those who claim to be scientists looking out for our best interests.
For example, if you are reading any of the reports that have been issued by Fauci and others — you are no longer considered fully vaccinated until you receive the booster shot.
“It’s going to be a matter of when, not if” getting a booster shot will be considered being “fully vaccinated,” Dr. Fauci said.
Israel changed their definition of “fully vaccinated” to include the booster months ago. New Zealand’s ministry of health is “considering” doing the same, as is Australia.
The US hasn’t formally adopted a new definition yet, but you’d have to be blind not to see the signs. Just yesterday the LA Times headlined:
Should the definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ be changed to include a booster shot?
An article on Kaiser Health News asks the same thing.
Opinion pieces are already appearing asking “is it safe to hang out with the unboosted”? This headline was so unpopular, the Atlantic changed it only a couple of hours after it was published.
Even if you have been vaccinated this is unprecedented.
It’s time everyone realized that you will never be fully vaccinated — ever, the vaccine is a gift that they will keep on giving as long as you trust them and that you believe in the science — they are chasing an impossible goal that will be pushed back over the horizon, forever.
But what is the real goal? – I am beginning to think that something needs a genome for the holidays.
This is the new normal — a normal where the genome and your DNA will be used for improving vaccines, targeting people with diseases, and even enhancing your transhuman existence as we reluctantly start our relationship with Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Bodies.
The “A.I. control grids” are all active and expanding. The technocratic agendas are now fully ready for prime-time. We have been gradually “shepherded” by propaganda and psychological torture techniques, just as we have also been physically compromised by toxins in the geo-engineered air and water, by disruptive electromagnetic frequency radiation, by weaponized technologies that include the release of nano-particulates inside our bodies (either by way of inhalation or injection) which are then governed by oxygen-absorbing 5G which at the higher millimeter wave frequency, will bring remote alteration of our very DNA under the “persistent” control of A.I., which will guide the process of transmuting us into commodities, into plunderable assets, into digitally-regulated and genetically modified “livestock.”
Sadly, this is where decades of constant acquiescence to propaganda and institutional hypnosis has brought us…bent over, staring at our shoes and bracing for the “BIG ONE.”
But what exactly is that BIG ONE?
Well perhaps we have been too preoccupied with our own terrifying ordeal with COVID to notice that we have had a number of Big Ones to contend with.
The latest being the rare force multiplied tornadoes that have killed many people and have ravaged neighborhoods. Like COVID-19, we can see that weather tampering is most definitely a lethal technology they can use as a weapon. Stalling jet streams is not child’s play — and creating spectacle using the weather is enough to conveniently convince people to hand over their lives to the purveyors of Climate science.
Yes, science is the new God — where they can smash particles together like the big bang, force multiply a tornado that can travel hundreds of miles and alter the DNA of millions of people under the threat of death.
They are now capable of creating mini machines that can reproduce.:
Scientists have discovered a new form of biological reproduction — and created self-replicating living robots. Made from frog cells, these computer-designed organisms gather single cells inside a Pac-Man-shaped ‘mouth’ — and release Xenobot ‘babies’ that look and move like themselves. Then the offspring go and do the same — over and over.
These new Xenobots can go out, find cells, and build copies of themselves. Again and again.
After reading an abstract provided by Science daily — the Frankenstein technology has arrived and eventually we can see that we will be sharing the world with Xenobots — or that we can be replaced entirely.
According to the scientists we read:
“On its own, the Xenobot parent, made of some 3,000 cells, forms a sphere. “These can make children but then the system normally dies out after that. It’s very hard, actually, to get the system to keep reproducing,” says Kriegman. But with an artificial intelligence program working on the Deep Green supercomputer cluster at UVM’s Vermont Advanced Computing Core, an evolutionary algorithm was able to test billions of body shapes in simulation — triangles, squares, pyramids, starfish — to find ones that allowed the cells to be more effective at the motion-based “kinematic” replication reported in the new research.”
Today ,they are using frog cells — tomorrow with all of the DNA they have collected via Covid Tests, home DNA test, DYI Colon tests and vaccines they will be able to give A.I, with advanced algorithms the Genome they need to become more human than human.
This is just one more step where we can or will be transformed into advanced independent humans augmented by perfectly blended combinations of technology, science and engineering.
But is that really what humanity wants — are we tired of being real humans and want so badly to be mechanized and genetically altered Pinocchios?
Our DNA will be carefully crafted by brilliant doctors and scientists to enhance only the “preferred” qualities in their human subjects, and under their wise direction, we will gladly do as we are told. For so great a future, we will willingly offer our support and so grow accustomed to our new life, lest we become like those poor unfortunate souls, so lost in their unreason, that they cannot fully appreciate the wisdom that derives from enthusiastically embracing progress.
In our leaders inspired and time-tested plans, we will of course have every convenience at our fingertips, such that doors will magically open when we approach. We will be able to download all manner of rich media and data with the blink of an eye. We will be as supermen.
Our definitions of what is valuable and what is not, will fluidly shift to suit changing circumstances. We will see ourselves as the very picture of modernity, and the envy of the world…just as we have always been. We will be as American as our multi-racial forefathers, even though they lived in unenlightened times…long before today’s great social justice transformation allowed us, their proud descendants, to wake each day into this glistening new world.
In such a world, when we ask ourselves what we might be grateful for, we will no longer need to struggle for an answer. We will know exactly what is good, true and beautiful and we will commit ourselves to those lofty ideals each and every day.
Therein too, and most mercilessly, resides the fatal beauty of technocratic fascism.
We will look back and wonder why we all were worried about losing our humanity when being a machine that is genomically perfect playing in a counterfeit metaverse is far more welcoming. And easy.
What we are seeing now is just prelude — what we are participating in is pretext for the transition. When will people start identifying as machines? Will this be as popular of a trend as being transexual, or pan sexual? Will we even need sexual identities at all when we are reduced to sterilized androgynous sylphs?
You may think this is an overreaction, but we are already acclimating to future shock and the uncanny valley is no longer uncanny.
Currently, some AI models are making strides toward natural language processing using the so-called “deep learning approach,” which tries to mimic how humans acquire knowledge.
Given a definition, it can use a made-up word in a sentence. It can rewrite a paragraph in the style of a famous author. It can write creative fiction. Or generate code for a program based on a description of its function. It can even answer queries about general knowledge.
Humans and all other living beings come with a set of pre-wired behaviors written into their genes, accumulated along the long and circuitous evolutionary journey. Animals have been around for about 100 million years and humans for about 100,000 years. That’s a lot of behavioral wisdom scripted in the genetic language of amino acids and nucleotides. On the contrary, AI comes with none. It has no genes to inherit and no genes to pass on. Humans and animals are products of both nature and nurture, but AI has only the former. Without the latter, it will never think like us.
That’s why AI and robots are superior to humans only in specific things, while failing at others. They beat world class players in chess and Go. They outperform us in math and everything else that relies on rules or calculations. They are indispensable when things are dangerous, dull, too heavy, or too repetitive. But they aren’t good at thinking on their feet, improvising, and interacting with the real world, especially when challenged by novel situations they weren’t trained to deal with.
AI could learn and adapt like humans with algorithms that work like genes.
But that is the goal — at the moment A.I. can do small tasks but most of them have the overall personality of a Roomba.
This is why scientists are hell bent on bottling consciousness and making self-replicating Xenobots.
The idea that humans should merge with AI is very much in the zeitgeist these days. It is offered both as a way for humans to avoid being outmoded by AI in the workplace, and as a path to superintelligence and immortality.
For instance, Elon Musk recently commented that humans can escape being outmoded by AI by “having some sort of merger of biological intelligence and machine intelligence.”
To this end, he’s founded a company, Neuralink. One of its first aims is to develop “neural lace,” an injectable mesh that connects the brain directly to computers. Neural lace and other AI-based enhancements are supposed to allow data from your brain to travel wirelessly to one’s digital devices or to the cloud, where massive computing power is available.
He says that he has now perfected a chip that can easily be placed in the brain and that soon the merger with humans will be complete.
Technocratic policymakers, the public, and even AI researchers themselves need a better idea of what is at stake.
For instance, if AI cannot be conscious, then if you substituted a microchip for the parts of the brain responsible for consciousness, you would end your life as a conscious being.
If you submit to experiments that alter DNA — you are affecting the genome and you don’t even know how that will affect your progeny — they may have to be forced into merging with machines in order to live — but how will that be life? It will certainly be normal to them — but eventually the old models of human will did off making way for the new and enhanced supermen — who toiled away like zombies doing the will of the mainframe.
You would eventually become a nonconscious simulacrum of your earlier self. Further, even if microchips could replace parts of the brain responsible for consciousness without zombifying you, radical enhancement is still a major risk. After too many changes, the person who remains may not even be you.
Each human who enhances may, unbeknownst to them, end their life in the process.
To decide whether to enhance, you must understand the metaphysics of personal identity. Philosophers call the characteristics that a thing must have as long as it exists “essential properties.” What might your essential properties be?
If you are simply the physical stuff that comprised your brain and body in first grade, you would have ceased to exist some time ago.
We are losing our humanity and most people are thinking like machines. They think that the end justified the means — scapegoats must be made to justify the removal of those who rebel against the technocratic science.
The unfortunate thing is that they’re targeting the new generations with ruthless efficiency, and we’ll soon enough find ourselves disparaged outcasts in a world peopled with monsters.
We are deciding that whatever position we take is valid -when the truth about our existence or extermination will reach a crescendo in this tailor-made apocalypse.
