Most Americans don't realize it, but right now scientists all over
the world are working feverishly toward bringing about a world where
men have merged with machines.
Some very prominent futurists are
touting this future as a world where humans will be far stronger,
far more intelligent, will have abilities that are far enhanced
beyond what is possible now and where some of us will literally be
able to live forever. The name of this rapidly growing movement is
transhumanism, and it has gained a tremendous amount of support in
the scientific community.
At first glance, the goals of
the transhumanist movement seem so
noble. After all, who wouldn't want a future where aging, suffering,
disease and even death have been eliminated?
That is what proponents of transhumanism actually believe that they
can bring about - a perfect world that has been greatly enhanced by
defines transhumanism this way...
Transhumanism is an international intellectual and cultural movement
supporting the use of science and technology to improve human mental
and physical characteristics and capacities.
The movement regards
aspects of the human condition, such as disability, suffering,
disease, aging, and involuntary death as unnecessary and
But is there a dark side to transhumanism?
Yes, there certainly is.
The following is a short clip from a documentary entitled
Technocalypse. In this video, a human cloning researcher named
Robert Seed declares that the transhumanist agenda will enable
himself and others like him to become living gods.
This is a
scientist who is absolutely obsessed with his goal and he is clearly
willing to do just about anything to achieve it...
This is the same lie that has been told since the Garden of Eden.
The forces of darkness always want to convince us that we can be
like God and that we can live forever.
But there are a growing number of scientists all over the world that
are absolutely convinced that dramatic advances in nanotechnology
and biotechnology will enable humanity to far surpass any
limitations that we are experiencing now.
To many of these scientists, transhumanism has become the overriding
philosophy of their lives. It is almost a religion to many of them.
They see nothing wrong with what they are trying to achieve. After
all, they argue, if we can dramatically improve humans by combining
them with animals or with machines why shouldn't we?
In fact it is believed by many transhumanists that we are on the
verge of seeing entire new "species" created. The transhumanist
version of the future includes many different "lines" of humanity.
In fact, many transhumanists are very open about the fact that
humanity as we know it will eventually go out of existence as far
more superior forms take over.
Perhaps you have not heard of transhumanism before, but the truth is
that the transhumanist movement is becoming so prominent that even
the New York Times is doing stories on it.
In an article entitled "Merely Human? Thatís So Yesterday", New York
Times columnist Ashlee Vance described the moment that transhumanists are most looking forward to.
It is known as "the
Singularity", and in her article Vance described the Singularity as,
"a time, possibly just a couple decades from now, when a superior
intelligence will dominate and life will take on an altered form
that we canít predict or comprehend in our current, limited state."
Many transhumanists believe that once the Singularity occurs those
who embrace transhumanism will have dramatically enhanced
intelligence and will be able to live for hundreds of years, and
those that do not embrace transhumanism will slowly die off as they
cling to their antiquated philosophies.
So will transhumanists actually be able to achieve their idea of
utopia by merging with technology?
Let's hope not. Or at least let's hope that they are not able to
achieve their goals any time soon.
But the truth is that they are working toward a "post-human" future
