THE TRANSHUMANIST SCRAPBOOK: HUMAN SUSPENDED ANIMATION TRIALS

Here’s yet another development to put in your transhumanist scrapbook, courtesy of Mr. V.T. who shared it. This weeks scrap for the scrapbook? Suspended animation trials on humans are slated to begin at a Pittsburgh hospital:

Humans will be kept between life and death in the first suspended animation trials

If all this sounds a little too much like crazed Dr. Walter Bishop from the popular TV series, Fringe, that’s probably because it is. As the article notes, the central driving force here is that suspended animation has already been successfully performed, on a pig:

“The technique of suspended animation (or “emergency preservation and resuscitation” as non-sci-fi doctors prefer to call it) was first trialed on pigs in 2002. Hasan Alam, working with his colleagues at the University of Michigan Hospital, drugged up a pig, created a massive hemorrhage to simulate the effect of a massive gunshot wound, and then replaced its blood with a cold saline solution, cooling the pig’s cells to just 10 Celsius (50F). After the injury was treated, the pig was gradually warmed back up by replacing the saline with blood. Usually the pig’s heart started beating on its own, and despite the pig being dead for a few hours, there was no physical or cognitive impairment. Now, it’s time to try it out on humans. [Research paper: dx.doi.org/10.1067/msy.2002.125787 - "Learning and memory is preserved after induced asanguineous hyperkalemic hypothermic arrest in a swine model of traumatic exsanguination"]“

As the article indicates, current hopes for human trials are in a time frame of two hours, at most, but one can already envision a dramatic extension of this time frame, again as the article itself notes, to weeks, months, perhaps even years. The real success will be indicated, as the above paragraph suggests, not simply by “resuscitation”, but by whether or not an individual’s memory and cognitive ability remain… or, perhaps, even enhanced.

At this juncture, we can indulge in some high octane speculation, for let us suppose that such trials are successful, and that memory and cognitive abilities remain as they were before. One can imagine the adaptation of such techniques to the transhumanist agenda, with its stated desires to “download” and “upload” a persons memories. One can imagine the use of technologies while an individual is in a state of “suspended animation” to enhance, or otherwise modify, a person’s memories, cognitive abilities, or even behavior patterns. Or even more horrifically, “downloading” one individual and uploading another, whether by deliberate action, or, perhaps, as an unintended consequence of phenomena we do not even understand.

See you on the flip side.

    This may seem a little off topic but after discovering videos of your interviews on youtube & following almost all of them for weeks now,..considering your vast knowledge on ancient cultures such as ancient Sumeria, Babylonia, Egypt etc…I notice that you never mention Ancient Armenia, the Armenian Highlands/Urartu.

    I’m a little puzzled by that. Because, it (Ancient Armenia) is perhaps one of the most ancient civilizations ever & even Zacharia Stichin’s book (Sumerian Text Translations) is filled with references to Urartu & other ancient Armenian Highland’s sites.

    Or maybe you have mentioned them in one of your books? I haven’t read any yet.

    are we to naively assume these kind of experiments would be something new?-

    God help those trapped/caged/medically/mentally tortured in the DUMBS throughout the world- there’s a DUMB not too far from my present location in SW Germany; and all the locals near the city of Calw (it’s prnounced ‘Kalv’-where the ‘official’ entrances are) say it’s a CIA thing and you can’t even get near it; the “officious” story among the locals (I worked with two of them so I have it from the horses’ mouths)is this is a place where CIA officials receive a ‘higher education’ (I kid you not- their own words according to what they’ve been told)-

    God only knows what’s going on down there; but despite all that, I wouldn’t be surprised if the rumor is true that gold reserves are buried under the tarmacs of the Zürich, Switzerland (my favorite country!- barf) airport; Calw is not really all that far away if one believes in advanced underground burrowing technologies in order to have achieved an advanced underground connection between Calw and Zürich- look it up on a map- the two areas aren’t really all that far from each other-

    please be well all-

    My understanding is that the technology exists for literally transferring a soul from one body to another, a la the movie Avatar. Also, for some decades, individuals have been driven via first, physical stress, then via drugs and electro/magnetic and microwave intrusions, to the point of surrendering spirit – the optimal state for complete re-programming to do or be just about anything their overlords wish to download into them. These dark accomplishments are the unpleasant application of what yogis have been able to do for who knows how long: literally leave their body at will and step into one that has just died, stand up and walk away in it. I know of an historical account of such a feat performed by a master from North India who had travelled to South India and needed a local, darker skinned physical vehicle that spoke the local language in order to blend in and do his work of spiritual service to the troubled people of that time. Out of body experiences and near death experiences are well documented. I suspect these “suspended animation trials” are really old news. It is interesting that the nefarious agenda of the pathological would-be world dominators is revealing what any human being can achieve for positive and spiritual motivations. And, with time, when more individuals awaken their latent abilities, the dark agenda will find itself diminishing in the sunlight of human progress.

    When did they begin experiments like this and long have been going on. What use do our elites plan for this technology to sleep through a war against the rest of us. A new form of punishment so their opponents will awaking in the future to a world they can’t adjust too. What is their ultimate game really.

  5. Robert Barricklow says:

    In reading this(like sci-fi gone live) I’m reminded out authors like Philip K Dick.
    Then, one wonders, if the future is already “here”; just not, as yet, – eventually distributed?

    Instincts in animals, is a form of memory transfer. As well as all the automatic biological functions.

    If they are thinking about doing it….they have already succeeded. There way of letting us know.

    This was practiced by the Tibetans, perhaps purposely misinterpreted as reincarnation in the forbidden texts. Might have something to do with the Germans interest in twin research during banking war 2. Then there is the valley of the kings,located at …..one of the chakras….
