THE TRANSHUMANIST SCRAPBOOK: MICRO-HUMANS FOR HARVESTING

The Bride of Frankenstein is alive and well. You may or may not remember the movie, but in it, the mad scientist concerned reveals his “prize creation,” little jars of tiny humans, in full costume, the quintessence of the alchemical “homunculus.” Now it’s become a disturbing reality:

Mad Science: ‘Genetically Modified Micro Humans’ to be ‘Farmed’ for Drug Testing by 2017

This is – and I will not mince words – the end result of a philosophy that early on and in relationship to a very different issue bought into the moral and ethical lie that somehow a unique human zygote is not a person and not deserving of the equal protection of the law, whether that zygote be created “the old fashioned way” or by the meddling hand of man. But whether you share that view or not, there is another implicit logic behind all this….

In my book Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men, I raised the specter of the standards of American patent law, and how they  were being applied to the issue of GMO foods. The essence of this argument is that if a product cannot arise naturally, but requires the intervention of the hand of man, and if that process follows a precise recipe which others can duplicate, then it is patentable and both the idea and the product become property. Following this logic, I then raised the specter of the ancient texts that seem to suggest – though some would dispute it – that modern man himself originated by some similar process practiced in High Antiquity by “someone else,” who might return someday to reclaim their “property.” Attorneys might have a field day with this, should such a bizarre and high octane scenario ever occur, for the “course of performance” over the past centuries of humanity “managing” its own affairs would seem to constitute a legal argument against any such implicit contract. And there would be “jurisdictional” matters to settle: what court would have jurisdiction to hear such a case?

But what if, I asked, similar processes were to be applied to modern humanity by our out-of-control pharmaceutical cartels (mercury is safe, everyone, get your flu shot!). In that instance, any “products” become property, and not persons, and we’re right back to the “logic” of Dred Scot case. One can even envision a scenario where said corporations and their little “humanity farms” and their microchipped genetically engineered occupants could be counted as “3/5 of a person” for census purposes… in other words, the potential for political mischief is almost unparalleled, and given the track record of various government agencies and corporations, don’t put it past them!

The upside-down morality of these mad scientists and their government and corporate backers is revealed by the fact that this will all be touted as a “good thing” to save animal testing!:

“Developers of artificial micro-humans, or ‘mini GM humans,’ are hoping to release their technology on the market by 2017. No this isn’t a sci-fi joke. Scientists are developing artificial humans in the same vein as GM plants with the hope that these creations will replace the need for using animals in laboratory testing.”

Welcome to the “brave new world” folks. We’ll see lots of hand-ringing and platitudinous “explanations” of the benefits from technocrats, politicians, and “religious leaders” and so on. It will be a carefully managed “debate” that will be no debate at all.

See you on the flip side…

THE GROWING SECESSION MOVEMENT… A NEW SCAM?

Last Thursday voters in Scotland voted on the issue of whether to secede from the United Kingdom. And as you know, the difficulties in Catalonia in Spain are reaching a fever pitch of secessionism.  But there’s another country where’s there’s growing rumblings about secession(and of course, it’s RT that’s reporting it): Inspired by Scotland: Quarter[More...]

THE ONGOING VACCINE THING: RAPPAPORT ON THE CDC WHISTLEBLOWER

There’s been more development in that major news story about the cover-up of the vaccine-autism connection at the CDC, you know, that story you seldom – if ever – hear about from the presstitutes in the lamestream media. Once again, it’s Jon Rappaport’s “No More Fake News” website that’s running the story” BREAKING: CDC WHISTLEBLOWER:[More...]

OPPOSITION TO COMMON CORE GROWING AMONG TEACHERS?

Most of you are aware that I have nothing but disdain for the edubabblers and teacher certification process, not to mention the mind-numbing grip of standardized tests on the American “edgykayshun” establishment, and that I have nothing but admiration for the teachers trying to swim upstream against the flood standing in their way of teaching[More...]

INTRIGUING NEWS FROM CHINA: WERE THE RECENT MILITARY EXERCISES TO FORESTALL A COUP?

There’s news from China, and it’s rather intriguing, and if true, significant at that. It was shared by a regular reader here, Mr. S.D., and, while lengthy and in a somewhat clumsy English translation from the Chinese, is worth pondering: China May Have Undergone Some Kind of Coup There are so many intriguing possibilities suggested[More...]

YET ANOTHER TIDBIT: A HISTORY OF THE COVERT JAPANESE NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM

Here’s an intriguing history – in the context of today’s article about China – about Japan’s covert nuclear weapons program: United States Circumvented Laws To Help Japan Accumulate Tons of Plutonium Now…let’s see if I’ve got this right: Japan could be a nuclear and probably thermonuclear power within a matter of weeks, larger than China,[More...]

PLAYING DARPA: DARPA’S HUNT FOR SPACE-TIME VULNERABILITIES IN ALGORITHMS: PART TWO

Yesterday I outlined a sweeping “high octane speculation” context involving high frequency trading, predictive algorithms, the electric surveillance state, information or photon entanglement, and, yes, interplanetary commerce. The reason why  such a context was necessary to outline – to my mind at least – was an article shared with us by Ms. P.H., a regular[More...]

CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER…

PLAING DARPA: DARPA’S HUNT FOR SPACE-TIME VULNERABILITIES IN ALGORITHMS: PART ONE

This article was shared by Ms. P.H., a regular here, and it’s definitely worth passing along. But first, a little context. One of my private fascinations has been the so-called Flash Crash of 2010 and the field of High Frequency Trading, those computer algorithms that now drive much of the stock and commodities markets in[More...]
