With the overt disclosure of
program, a scientific advancement process intended to ultimately
lead to ‘immortality’ via an artificial body and mind, a startlingly
clear picture of what was once thought of as a science fiction
fantasy is forming into reality in a profound way.
The 2045 strategic social initiative is an explicit display of a
plan for what is touted as human immortality - first available to
the wealthy elite of the world.
Also called the "Avatar Project," this
effort puts a face to the underlying attempts of transhumanists to
use genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology
to create a technologically advanced grade of “humans” with
abilities and lifespan far beyond that of the average man.
Trans-humanism (or H+), is a growing movement that asserts claims
and ambitions that ultimately seek to debase the position of natural
man, and ultimately replace him with a wholly superior “H+”
A view largely held by many secular
scientists, these individuals also will be instrumental in bringing
forth what they deem as in an inevitable progression in the
evolution of humankind.
The 2045 project essentially aims to create a holographic ‘avatar’
as well as artificial bodies that a human can have his
transferred to when his mortal body fails. Should this technology
work, then theoretically this would mean that a person can live
forever and ‘choose’ their time to die.
Although it looks appealing in theory, there are serious
implications and issues with this altogether.
Being advocates of natural health and believing the human body has
its own intricate design, an attempt to become a synthetic avatar
would potentially erase all of the aspects of humanity that define
our character and being.
This technology at its fruition would also attempt to delve into
realms of reality no scientist has ever been able to grasp within a
natural, human viewpoint of comprehension. Theoretical physicists
are beginning to admit that our universe is a shadow of a larger
reality, and the natural man can scarcely understand it with his own
Like it or not, this universe is far
more complex than what we have observed.
Despite this, there are parameters in place that define the
experience of a human being, including three dimensions, senses,
emotions, free will, conscience, morality, accountability and
An attempt to abdicate all of these aspects of humanity, regardless
of any of the assumed benefits is something so mind boggling and
even hubris filled that it lends itself to a science fiction script,
and yet there are people attempting to make this a reality.
This particular project is being pushed as a nonprofit, and asking
for the financial aid of many high profile elites, giving them
premium access to the technology at its fruition. Giving supposed
immortality to these malevolent figures to continue their rule
throughout all of ‘eternity’ is literally the playbook out of an
evil mastermind’s hand.
Whether or not this technology (and others like it) succeeds, its
concept and implications have been a longstanding threat to
humanity, and would replace it with something that may be too
absurd, destructive, and even hellish to consider a reality.
And yet the roots of the quest for godhood have been established
long before today in a book written thousands of years ago:
“And the serpent said unto the
woman, Ye shall not surely die. For God doth know that in
the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye
shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
