If there is one thing that the elite of the world fear more than anything else, it is death.
They spend an extraordinary amount of time and energy attempting to shield themselves from potential threats, to separate themselves from the general population and to do whatever they can to extend their life-spans.
They travel with multiple bodyguards, they install "safe rooms" in their homes, they buy private islands on the other side of the world and they invest huge amounts of money into life extension technologies and research. They do all of these things in a desperate attempt to battle an enemy that they have never been able to defeat - death.
And in this day and age, the elite are becoming more paranoid than ever.
They know that as the gap between the wealthy and the poor has exploded that they have become bigger targets than ever. So firms that provide private security, "safe rooms" and high tech "security bunkers" for the elite are doing a booming business these days.
Many of the elite live in constant fear and absolutely crave security, and they are willing to pay big bucks to get it.
On Monday, the New York Times ran an article entitled "Still Secret and Secure - Safe Rooms Now Hide in Plain Sight" which discussed how "safe rooms" are becoming much more common among the elite living in New York City…
Most Americans tend to view the elite as people that have it all together.
But that is not really the case. Most of them spend much of their time living in fear. Sometimes the threats are real, and sometimes the threats are imagined.
And as anger toward "the one percent" has surged in recent years, so has the fear of the ultra-wealthy. In fact, many of them have gone so far as to purchase "survival properties" and "bug out locations" on the other side of the planet.
If you do not believe this, just consider what the president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking, Robert Johnson, told a packed audience in Davos, Switzerland…
But even if the elite are able to shield themselves from the rest of us for their entire lives, they know that eventually the aging process is going to catch up with them and they are going to die.
Despite all of their wealth and influence, death is something that they cannot escape.
That is why the elite have always been obsessed with the latest medical technologies. Anything that can extend their time in this world is greatly desired by them.
And now, thanks to the massive technological explosion that we have seen in recent years, many of them hope that new radical life extension technologies will enable them to live far longer than humans have been able to live before.
The elite are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into these kinds of technologies, and many of them seem quite promising.
The following is an excerpt from an article about these new technologies that appeared in The Week…
That sounds like stuff you would find in a science fiction movie.
But it doesn't stop there. Many among the elite believe that the "transhumanism" movement will eventually allow them to completely merge with technology and essentially become part-human/part-machine cyborgs which will have indefinite life-spans.
This may sound quite bizarre to you, but there are lots and lots of scientists that take this stuff extremely seriously.
For example, the following is an excerpt from an article that appeared just this week in The Telegraph…
When I first read that, it reminded me of this quote from Charles Darwin:
This is how the elite of the world have always approached things.
They see themselves as the very top of the pyramid. In fact, once technology has advanced far enough they believe that they won't even need any "god" anymore because they will be "gods" that can live indefinitely...
Just consider the words of Professor Yuval Noah Harari…
Others in the transhumanist movement hold similar views.
The following is a quote from a prominent transhumanist named Mark Pesce that I included in a previous article…
So what about the rest of us?
Well, the truth is that the elite certainly do not intend for all of us to live indefinitely. In fact, most of them are absolutely convinced that there are far too many people living on the planet already.
This is something that I covered in my previous article entitled "46 Population Control Quotes that Show How Badly the Elite Want to Wipe Us All Out".
If everyone was allowed to radically extend their life-spans, that would make our "overpopulation" problem far worse according to them. So no, the amazing new technologies talked about in this article won't be for the rest of us. It will only be for those among the elite with lots and lots of money.
The global elite look forward to a glorious new age in which the population of the planet will be stabilized around 500 million people (which represents a more than 90 percent reduction from today).
They believe that new technologies will usher in a time when poverty, disease and sickness will be eradicated and when people will be able to live indefinitely.
It will be a world shaped and molded by them, and there will be no more war or conflict. Instead, everyone will share the same common values and the same common goals.
They believe that it will literally be "heaven on earth" and the elite will not need any "gods" because they will be gods.
