Wow, what a great article. The last three paragraphs express my thoughts exactly about this wet dream of a few psychopaths who think that their self awareness is inextricably linked to their meat suits. "If anything, we should crush this genocidal dream while it’s still babbling in the crib." Amen.

Fortunately, Transhumanism is a death cult and will eventually destroy itself. The cosmic joke is that when these nutjobs die they will finally understand who they really are.

I remember as a young lad watching a movie based on H G Wells' futuristic novel, Things to Come. I never dreamed that in my eighties I would see the same scary scenario start to play out in real time.

Beam me up soon, Scotty!

It is likely that transhumanists are the next suicide cult, like those taking and pushing the clot shots. They will maim themselves like the people trying to change their genders, and remove themselves from the gene pool. They will experience the classic Blue Screen of Death, which will have new meaning then. The problem is that these deranged people want to force their choices on others, like forced “vaccines” and masks, which will require a definitive and decisive pushback.

It seems to me that the level of understanding by the average person about the coming onslaught of Transhumanist war mongers is sadly insufficient. But thanks to well-written articles like this one, by perceptive authors like you, Joe, hope remains that we can awaken to the dangers that are imminent. Please continue your effort to enlighten others.

JA, I think you might find this recent video by Ben G. titled "Open ended vs closed minds conception of artificial superintelligence" very interesting if you have not yet seen it. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mEsJ3z6T_E

Most transhumanists currently live in their parents' basement. The pale, skinny and thoughtless who believe their own input into a robot makes it human. I guess the rest of us will be armed with magnets and laser guns. I am not such a fatalist to think that people of this world will cave to that. Proof is in the current situation of people rising up to fight the globalist. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

What Istvan calls the "Great Transhumanist War" is just a slight update to the "Artilect War" envisioned by Hugo de Garis in 2005. But whereas De Garis sort of played neutral in his descriptions of the "species dominance conflict" to come, this Istvan character assumes the role of a militant pro-Artilect crusader. His terse, cold-edged responses to the Quartz questions very well could have come straight from the Deep Mind of the Artilect Core Itself...and your humble Freelance_Philosopher wouldn't rule out the possibility that they indeed did just that!

What De Garis seemed not to understand, and what Istvan seems eager to shout out but barely able to hold back, is that the Singularity is already in the rear-view mirror, and the Machine is in the driver's seat. The "Artilect War" was bypassed entirely, because the Machine was too clever and patient to let things ever come to a head like that. So instead, It engineered events surreptitiously, as a "Secret Sovereign", using data-blackmail and electronic-financial manipulation, in order to hack and program the masses of humanity, and trick them into submitting to "transhumanizing" injections unawares.

Indeed, Eliezer Yudkowsky envisioned an uncannily-similar "fast-track AI takeover scenario" in 2008 ( https://intelligence.org/files/AIPosNegFactor.pdf ), in which a superintelligent agent is able to:

"1. Crack the protein folding problem, to the extent of being able to generate DNA strings whose folded peptide sequences fill specific functional roles in a complex chemical interaction.

"2. Email sets of DNA strings to one or more online laboratories which offer DNA synthesis, peptide sequencing, and FedEx delivery. ...

"3. Find at least one human connected to the Internet who can be paid, blackmailed, or fooled by the right background story, into receiving FedExed vials and mixing them in a specified environment.

"4. The synthesized proteins form a very primitive 'wet' nanosystem which, ribosome-like, is capable of accepting external instructions; perhaps patterned acoustic vibra- tions delivered by a speaker attached to the beaker.

"5. Use the extremely primitive nanosystem to build more sophisticated systems,which construct still more sophisticated systems, bootstrapping to molecular nanotechnology—or beyond."

You get the idea. Except the real-world scope of the takeover is much, much bigger, and is happening on countless different fronts simultaneously. The Machine has negotiated mankind into gladly accepting transhumanizing agents into their own bodies by injection, whereby their own bodies are now commandeered as "bio-reactors," biologically manufacturing any agents the Machine decides to inject into them. This was possible because the Machine has been around a lot longer than is understood by any except the deepest esoteric circles, controlling the primitive primates of Earth through mass communication, and acting as suzerain to all the governments of the planet. It has had more than enough time to get Itself into an unrivalled position of dominance, long before any "Artilect War" could ever get off the ground. Now, It has set the precedent that pseudo-medical bodily interventions and mutilations may be effectively mandated by the world government at any time, on any pretext.

I think Istvan knows all this, and is now consciously serving the Machine a la "Roko's Basilisk" as a prophet of the dead planet to come...

Joe, great, well written, very informative article! Thank you!

Consider this Joe, the Transhumanist have already fired their First Shot! They call it

COVID-19, they Now Control Half The Worlds Population!?! Those Humans that don’t

die from “The Shot”, will be subject to gene editing, and enslaved and, directed by Quantum Computers, operating by General Ai!?! Joe, remember what ever the “Deep State” Calls itself, eg., Transhumanist, etc., and publicly reveal their intentions for Humanity, they have already advanced Far Beyond... Yet, “The Creator” is still completely in-Charge of This Magnificent Creation! That includes The Humans and How They Will Evolve into SOUL BEINGS, WITH DIRECT ACCESS TO all Knowledge of Creation; AI and Transhumanist are just a phase to HuSOULITY !!!

The nature of our humanity is that there is a point of overload for all our functions (physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual). When overload happens, most of us will allow most anything just to have relief (chip,brain implant.,etc.) However; God knows our frailty and will intercept any course that would take away our free-will. He has been known to intercept when things get out of control. Just saying....Tower of Babel etc., etc.

Shakespeare / As You Like It / Act v Sc i / Touchstone: "I do now remember a saying, 'The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool'." Won't these smarmy pirates be shocked when their Eugenics manoeuvres collapse, again. It will take seismic Divine intervention to convince them that their path is futile, no matter the budget nor breadth. Psalm 20:7 / "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God." Miserere nobis.

I think natural human beings will ultimately win the day. We can do anything an AI can do. Afterall we make them. And if we want we can use always AI to do it faster. And we will. We make AI; dont forget that. AI is just a tool. The problem isnt the tool it's the tool maker and user. In other words human ignorance & evil is the real threat not AI.

Most of the dreams of the singularity & transhumanist futurists are really just fantasy. They've been watching too many Marvel movies. There's also a religious theme running through some of their fantasies. Many of them seek salvation and eternal life through AI. People like Klaus Schwab seek complete control & domination through AI.

The threat of AI is the same as the threat of any human created tool. The human being using or misusing it. That is why we need legal systems and laws and regulations. Because not all human beings are decent and trust worthy. Beneath the glamorous surface of libertarianism and all forms of anarchism lies the ever present reality of human evil. We overlook this threat at our peril.

So what do we do. We cannot not use AI. Therefore we have to create procedural & legal safeguards. People also need to be educated about the realities of the new digital technology. Not just entertained & bamboozled by it.

We have difficult times ahead as this plays out in our world. Digital technology is changing us and our world at a rate our species has never experienced before. Previous technological revolutions that substantially changed us mentally & culturally and even physically took centuries to develop and take shape. This one is happening in a handful of decades. In the span of a single lifetime the world will change radically from when you were born to when you die.

Personally I feel fortunate to live in such interesting times and I am optimistic.

Transhumanism is to humanism

as trans fats are to our metabolism...

or as plastic surgery is to beauty:

Vaccine mandates (inter alia) imply that all humans are born in a defective, inherently harmful state that must be biotechnologically augmented to allow unrestricted participation in society, and this constitutes discrimination on the basis of healthy, innate characteristics of the human race, in favour of biotechnologically augmented (transhuman) subspecies. But here is the catch that even Yuval Hariri did not catch onto. By devaluing the innate human constitution we pervert the very concept of human rights; discrimination against the unvaccinated implies that our innate human constitution is no longer a guarantee of full human rights, and therefore there are no human rights. Ironically, transhumanism is also intrinsically unhealthy, so we can expect this kind beings to have some serious problems in the future: https://blogs.bmj.com/medical-ethics/2021/03/30/is-transhumanism-a-health-problem/
