When I titled this book 'The Evil Twins of Technocracy and
Transhumanism,' I was not thinking of that pair of famous brothers
who are, ironically, closely associated with these intertwined
I'm referring, of course,
to Aldous Huxley, who dramatically pictured technocracy in
his 1932 book
Brave New World, and Julian
Huxley, who twenty-five years later introduced the word "transhumanism"
to the English lexicon.
In his 1957 book
for New Wine,
younger brother Julian wrote:
The human species
can, if it wishes, transcend itself - now just
sporadically, an individual here in one way, an individual there
in another way, but in its entirety, as humanity.
We need a name for
this new belief.
Perhaps transhumanism will serve: man remaining man, but
transcending himself, by realizing new possibilities of and for
his human nature. 1
Another twenty-five years
would elapse before
transhumanism became a viable movement.
The first modern
transhumanists met formally in the early 1980s at the University of
California, Los Angeles, and,
"quickly became the centre of transhumanist thinking."
transhumanism has since become one of the de facto ideologies of
Silicon Valley. 2
Futurist Max More is considered the philosophical father of modern
In a 1994 essay, More
refined the tenets of modern transhumanism in urgent, if not stark,

faith, no more timid holding back. Let us blast out of our old
forms, our ignorance, our weaknesses and our mortality.

In all of their speeches
and literature, transhumanists have made it clear that they regard
transhumanism as merely an interim state - a state that ultimately
leads to posthumanism.
They call transhumanism
the process and posthumanism the target. They envision machines,
computers, and artificial intelligence eventually merging with man.
They predict that death
will be eliminated when man's immortal state is achieved by
uploading the content of the human brain into the "cloud."
There, they say, man will
be reanimated either into another body or into an avatar or into the
nose of a spaceship to travel the universe.
More, who holds a PhD in philosophy, has obviously rubbed shoulders
with other academics and with scientists and computer engineers,
which has allowed him to gain futuristic insights into newly

Was this an early
vision of the blending of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology,
Information science and Cognitive science (NBIC) - the moon-shot
rocket that would launch 'Humanity 2.0'...?
When this passage was
written, its resemblance to science fiction novels and films caused
most observers to laugh at early transhumanists like Max More.
Few are laughing now. In the intervening years, the transhumanist
philosophy and the applied science of NBIC have been spreading like
wildfire throughout the world's top academic institutions and
emerging biotech companies.
Big Pharma has been visibly involved in transhumanism and NBIC since
at least 1992, when the UN Convention on Biodiversity met in Rio de
By early 2020, enough
progress had been made to spring the transhuman trap on all of
The trap took the form of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which
Big Pharma and
the biotech industry used as an opportunity to launch a
revolutionary new "vaccine" technology based on messenger
ribonucleic acid, or mRNA.
A little explanation is in order.
We are more familiar with
DNA than with RNA, so let's start with DNA. Spelled out, DNA is
deoxyribonucleic acid, a substance found in all living organisms. It
is a double-stranded set of base pairs (adenine, thymine, guanine,
and cytosine), which is arranged in the shape of a twisted helix.
The ordering of base
pairs is called a gene, and a collection of genes is called a
chromosome. Human DNA consists of 23 pairs of chromosomes.
RNA is shorthand for ribonucleic acid, which is a single strand of
DNA that contains the instructions needed to make proteins.
mRNA, or messenger RNA,
delivers those blueprints to the ribosome for the construction and
arrangement of the amino acid building blocks of each protein.
Once the protein is
successfully created, the original mRNA strand simply dissolves.
This is a never-ending process in the body. It generates the
proteins necessary to sustain life.
This is obviously a very complex subject, and my description is not
intended to be complete.
The new mRNA "vaccine" is created synthetically in a laboratory.
When injected, this man-made mRNA bypasses your normal genetic
processes and spoofs your normal cells into producing a different
kind of protein called a "spike protein." Since spike proteins do
not belong in your body, the idea is that your body will see them as
foreign invaders and will build antibodies to attack, repel, and
antibodies are supposed to stick around until you are struck by a
real virus - at which point they provide a defense against
To quell growing public fear that mRNA injections might somehow
affect our DNA, the mRNA injection manufacturers, scientists, the
CDC, the FDA, and other health authorities all united in a vehement
denial that any such thing could ever happen.
However, their denials
were proven unfounded when, on February 22, 2022, a study was
released by Lund University in Sweden, describing a process of
"reverse transcription," whereby foreign mRNA can indeed find its
way back into one's DNA.
According to the

Transhumanism Met Technocracy
The 1992 UN Convention on Biological Diversity, which we mentioned
above, was conducted simultaneously with the Agenda 21 Conference,
whose full name was the UN Conference on Economic Development
Both were held in Rio de
Janeiro, and both were sponsored by,
Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP)
Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
"Agenda 21" was shorthand
for "the agenda for the 21st century."
Its raison d'être was
sustainable development, a resource-based economic system virtually
indistinguishable from the historic Technocracy, Inc. movement.
Both then and now, the UN
has acted as the global agent spreading this contagious ideology
around the world.
According to the International Institute for Sustainable
development has been defined in many ways, but the most
frequently quoted definition is from Our Common Future, also
known as the Brundtland Report:
development is development that meets the needs of the
present without compromising the ability of future
generations to meet their own needs." 7
The book the IISD
Our Common Future, was published in 1987 by the

Throughout her career -
first as a medical doctor, then as a politician, and finally as a
so-called environmentalist, Brundtland has been a member of
the Trilateral Commission.
Considering her cachet,
it is fitting that the UN has hailed her as the "mother of

fatal flaws in sustainable development, it is no wonder that her
ideology has been turning the world upside down ever since it was
At the Rio conference, a question was proposed: What can be done to
save the earth from the excessive development that has caused
pollution, [supposed] global warming, rainforest depletion, and
other harms [real or imagined], to the environment?
The answer proffered by the Brundtland Report? More development...!
Yes, more development
will surely solve the problems that more development has already

Apparently by erasing the

further development can and must be accomplished only by the earlier
developers - that is, by the very same actors whose greed has
already wrecked habitats and plundered nations.
Believe it or not, Brundtland convinced the UN membership that this
line of reasoning somehow made sense, and it was adopted as,
agenda for the 21st century" in 1992...
However, two genuine environmentalists who participated in the
Agenda 21 conference, Pratap Chatterjee and Matthias
Finger, saw through the smoke and mirrors.
In their book, The Earth
Brokers, published two years later, they noted that,
"free trade and its
promoters came to be seen as the solution to the global
ecological crisis." 8
The Earth Brokers
co-authors were explicit:
We argue that UNCED
has boosted precisely the type of industrial development that is
destructive for the environment, the planet, and its

result of UNCED, the rich will get richer, the poor poorer,

nor the secretariat, nor the governments drafted plans to
examine the pitfalls of free trade and industrial development.
Instead, they wrote up a convention on how to
'develop' the use
of biodiversity through patents and biotechnology. 10
Despite what UNCED
purported to be, its true mission was to capture and capitalize on
biodiversity for the sole sake of the biotechnology industry.
This fact was largely
overlooked between 1992 and the Great Panic - misnamed pandemic - of
In the past two years, though, it has become impossible to
ignore the fact that the global takeover has been, from the Rio
conference on, orchestrated by elements of that very same
Biodiversity Really Means
Transhumanism has been hiding in the shadows, coming to light in
fits and starts, in both preaching and practice, ever since
Julian Huxley first penned the word in his 1957 collection of
As with anything new and
especially anything occult, transhumanism is not easy to spot until
we learn what to look for. At least that's how it was for me when I
first heard of transhumanism several years ago.
After that, I began to
see the transhumanist hand everywhere, starting with Brundtland's
1987 report, Our Common Future:
The diversity of
species is necessary for the normal functioning of ecosystems
and the biosphere as a whole.
The genetic material in wild
species contributes billions of dollars yearly to the world
economy in the form of improved crop species, new drugs and
medicines, and raw materials for industry. 11
The specific development
of biodiversity can be found in her Chapter 6, Species and
Ecosystems: Resources for Development, where she writes:
Species and their
genetic materials promise to play an expanding role in
development, and a powerful economic rationale is emerging to
bolster the ethical, aesthetic, and scientific case for
variability and germplasm material of species make contributions
to agriculture, medicine, and industry worth many billions of
dollars per year. [...]
If nations can ensure
the survival of species, the world can look forward to new and
improved foods, new drugs and medicines, and new raw materials
for industry. 12
Further on, Brundtland
Vast stocks of
biological diversity are in danger of disappearing just as
science is learning how to exploit genetic variability through
the advances of genetic engineering. [...]
It would be grim
irony indeed if just as new genetic engineering techniques begin
to let us peer into life's diversity and use genes more
efficiently to better human conditions, we looked and found this
treasure sadly depleted. 13
Sure enough, The Earth
Brokers authors found that Brundtland's written statements perfectly
align with what they observed during the UNCED and Biodiversity
In their eyewitness testimony, they noted:
implicitly equates the diversity of life - animals and
plants - to the diversity of genetic codes, for which read
By doing so,
diversity becomes something that modern science can manipulate.
Finally, the convention promotes biotechnology as being
'essential for the conservation and sustainable use of
Leaving no room for doubt
as to the UN's goal, they made this mind-blowing statement:
The main stake raised
by the Biodiversity Convention is the issue of ownership and
control over biological diversity. [...]
[T]he major concern
was protecting the pharmaceutical and emerging biotechnology
To further reinforce
their bold claim, the authors added,
"[T]hey wrote up a
convention on how to 'develop' the use of biodiversity through
patents and biotechnology." 16
Note carefully - and I
underscore this point with bold and italic and capital letters -
that ownership and control over genes was not a side issue or a
minor stake of the Biodiversity Convention:
It was the MAIN STAKE...!
Though the UNCED conference was expected to bridge the gaps between
the North and South, it was soon apparent that everything was being
totally dominated by the developed nations of the North.
As The Earth Brokers
explained, all solutions were provided by,
Western technology, Western information, Western training,
Western money and Western institutions." 17
Consistent Throughout UN Documents
Also in 1992, the same year as the UNCED conference, UNEP and IUCN
published a book titled Global Biodiversity Strategy and
subtitled Guidelines for Action to Save, Study, and Use Earth's
Biotic Wealth Sustainably and Equitably. 18
Its themes, which matched
the goals of the UNCED conference, were presented carefully in order
to win the Third World's approval, cooperation, and participation.
For example, a royalty stream from all new anticipated revenue
generated by the biotech companies was promised to the originating

Would you be shocked that
the sustainability and equity promises made in the UNEP/IUCN book
haven't been kept?
Just the opposite has
Monsanto, for instance,
developed and patented genetically modified crop seed then proceeded
to force farmers to pay royalties for the use of the seeds - instead
of giving them royalties from the revenues generated.
Bullies Small Farmers," "Argentine farmers
will pay royalties to seed companies," and "How Monsanto wrote
and broke laws to enter India" became common.
Indeed, it is now obvious
that publications like Global Biodiversity Strategy and UNEP's
follow-up series of "Global Biodiversity Assessment" reports, first
published in 1995, were written for one cynical purpose only:
snag the signatures of the 196 or so nations of the world...
These nations didn't
realize they were signing on to a fantasy.
The UN and its myriad
NGOs have held them hostage to the treaties and agreements they've
endorsed, regardless of the harm and pain inflicted by the treaties
and agreements on those very same nations.
The Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework
In the same way that Agenda 21 was updated by 2030 Agenda in 2015,
the Global Biodiversity Convention is currently being refined by the
Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
Working groups have been
busy since 2020, creating the various elements that will go into the
framework, which was expected to be completed sometime in late 2022.
Because biotechnology and genetic science have progressed so rapidly
over the last twenty-five years, a previously used phrase,
is now deemed unsuitable and it is being replaced with "digital
sequence information on genetic resources" (DSR).
According to the
National Human Genome Research Institute:
Sequencing DNA means
determining the order of the four chemical building blocks -
called "bases" - that make up the DNA molecule. The
sequence tells scientists the kind of genetic information that
is carried in a particular DNA segment.
scientists can use sequence information to determine which
stretches of DNA contain genes and which stretches carry
regulatory instructions, turning genes on or off.
In addition, and
importantly, sequence data can highlight changes in a gene that
may cause disease.
In the DNA double helix, the four chemical bases always bond
with the same partner to form "base pairs." Adenine (A) always
pairs with thymine (T); cytosine (C) always pairs with guanine
This pairing is the
basis for the mechanism by which DNA molecules are copied when
cells divide, and the pairing also underlies the methods by
which most DNA sequencing experiments are done.
The human genome
contains about 3 billion base pairs that spell out the
instructions for making and maintaining a human being. 21
All life forms on earth
have DNA that can be sequenced and fed into a computer for storage,
retrieval, and analysis.
The National Human Genome Research
Institute also envisions synthetic biology, where DNA would be
reengineered in ways that do not occur in nature but that would
somehow result in the "improvement" and "well-being" of the
