As few days ago I blogged about the effort of geneticists to resurrect the black plague and study its evolution. Well, as there so often is in science, a flip side to the story:

Resurrected ancient protein is a potent antibiotic

What interests me here is the potential not only to resurrect ancient diseases, but also ancient cures or evolutionary responses. Indeed, we are witnessing before our very eyes the god-like ability to literally travel back in time through the most effective record and memory of evolution: DNA itself.

Note the key word here, for it is a word near and dear, not so much to theologians and religious people, but to the transhumanist alchemists of modern "futurology," the "science" of speculation about the future changes that science and technology will bring about. We are witnessing the ability of scientists to resurrect organisms - albeit on only a small scale - and literally bring them back to life for study.

We can imagine, from here, a variety of futures, and indeed, the transhumanists do: resurrecting "people" by cloning them and then "downloading" someone else's memories (when the computing-neural-net interface is perfected, and I've blogged about that before here too). Nor are we talking about a "spiritual phenomenon" but about actual "bodily" resurrection, to quote the Anglican Thirty-Nine articles here(somewhat out of context), "with flesh, bones, and all things apertaining thereunto."

We can therefore also imagine some Victor Frankenstein in some laboratory, wanting to "resurrect" a "hero"... or we can imagine some Josef Mengele, wanting to resurrect "heroes" of a different sort. We already know all too well of the current genetic madness to create Frankenfoods and chimerical creatures of mingled DNA...mice or pigs with human blood, plants spliced together with genetic shotguns.

The long and short of it is, we are entering a new era, one where technological possibilities are opening up scientifically-based fulfillments of ancient religious and mythological images, and that means stories like this are not going to go away, they will increase, exponentially both in the number of such cases and in the scale at which technology is able to "resurrect" life. All the more reason we need to take the lessons of those ancient myths and texts very seriously.

    You know, THEY have gone way past that and
    actually have created ‘chimeras.”

    The chupicabra (I spelled the way it sounds {?} )
    sighted everywhere in Mexico, Puerto Rico and other
    places south of the border is only one example.

    Fascinating post, Dr. Farrell, and great comments too, especially Father Krespi’s suggestion of past ‘experimentation.’ I know I’m diving off into the deep-black end of the “what-if” pool here, but I can’t help wondering what astounding ‘experimentation’ may have occurred way way way WAY back when.
    Here’s an interesting little story that might demonstrate what I’m getting at — it’s from Philip Blair, quoting the work of his father, Harold Arthur Blair, from a 1920’s/30’s study of the Ashanti tribes of Ghana. Blair recounts the Konkomba tribes’ myth of their Sky-God, who they called Nawuni.

    “In the old dark days, Nawuni created man …… [who] became proud and ceased to care for Nawuni and his worship. So Nawuni thought out a scheme for enforcing the allegiance of men and angels. He called them to him, and showed them a wonderful and new thing, which he had created, the belly, for before that men had had no bellies.

    Men were foolishly delighted with these, especially when Nawuni explained the pleasure which they brought with them, the solid joy of eating and the wild exhilaration of drink. So men prayed Nawuni to give them bellies, which Nawuni gladly did. Thus men became dependent upon Nawuni for their daily bread.

    The angels were wiser and refused to pray for these gifts; so they preserved their independence, and were given positions of rule and authority in the earth. They became the tingbana (perhaps the ‘skins of earth ‘), each with his or her own territory on earth of which the rights, fertility and power belonged to them.”

    end quote

    Just imagine, taking a gentle earth-world where no beings had a “belly” — i.e. a world of non-corporeal beings? — and transforming its inhabitants (two- and four-legged) into a gruesome world of predator/prey, starvation, disease, and agonizing death —– effectively overlaying that beautiful, gentle world with enough endless suffering to feed the craving of those voracious god/sorcerers for all time, plus securing their dependent worship as well. What a plan, eh?

    Just food for thought — (pardon the pun).

    PS: Like everyone else here, I’m sending my heartfelt wishes for your improving health, Dr Farrell. We need you in tip-top shape!

    The Boys from Brazil anybody Ancient Blubonic Plague to join soup up Smallpox to turn loose on the world to do it’s business getting rid of all those people they don’t think ought to exist. As for real Victor Frabkenstein are they not here already we see and hear about their experiments we are shown god knows what they are doing in the government secret labatories be very afraid. There are rumours about Aids and Ebola might not be natural but made made for biowarfare. What nightmares await us in the future stay tune.

      I would like to be a fly on the wall in the top secret section of the Center for Disease Control. Maybe we could get a clue onto what’s really going on by interpreting all those statistics. The real bad stuff probably is coded in some secret language or code words for who would want to be caught with such documents? All those bio-weapons scientists/researchers kicking the bucket under suspicious circumstances. Could be coincidence but I doubt it. Really shady goings-on even if by nature that area is already very dark!

      There’s also a saying called ‘BENIEGNED NEGLECT. Personally I don’t see anything beniegn about NEGLECT. Some cut in medical coverage probably kills off more people than a small war. The trouble is the fatality statistics are spread out over the place. One has to really do some work to find them out. I heard more Vietnam Vets were killed by car accidents during the war then the entire war itself. ( I am not certain of this but I mentioned anyway?)

      It all adds us. I firmly BELIEVE there are people reading the statistics today who know how to interpret them but they have an AGENDA and it doesn’t include YOU or ME! Maybe they might not even have to cause some huge plague or epidemic. Lousy food, bad drinking water, polluted air, toxic medicine, sitting all day or night in front of a screen or tv with no exercise, Crime, Stress, etc, etc, etc and the list goes on and on. IT ADDS UP!

      I think a plague might happen if whoever is causing or leading us in this direction grows impatient!

      I been looking for a long time for a summary- like book in this subject area but as far as I can see no one is putting the complete picture together. I wish someone would or if some author has already then I want to know. (any recommendations would be welcomed) Everything U read about population reduction is so partial and one has to read between the lines or even study every word to decipher the truth from the lies. It would wear me out completely to do so!

      On a lighter note I heard the QUEEN OF ENGLAND doesn’t exactly advertise her CRIMES in some MACY STORE WINDOW for all to see. ( the author was telling his readers that it involves tough investigative journalism) It still struck me as ironic humor.

      This area is really, really MORBID! Just like HISTORY.

      What MIZGREEN POSTED ABOVE is such a RELIEF. How other people once lived and what they thought is the only thing that gives me some rays of hope for what happened once can happen again one day. (and if not I can DREAM it can happen!)

      • MizGreen on November 4, 2011 at 6:07 pm

        Thank you Paul for your comment on my weird ideas. Yes I take some comfort in my belief that this planet was once a loving and gentle place (where the figurative lion would indeed lay down with the lamb), before the ‘experimenters’ overlaid it with a Smorgasbord of Suffering. The problem is, I can’t imagine any moral way it can now be reversed, especially if we’re Frankenstein’s most notable monster. =O

    This is all cute and all, but have you noticed that after decades of stories about all sorts of breakthroughs and discoveries, none of it ever actually shows up in our reality?

    Technology breakthroughs never enter the market place (aside from the internet amd miniaturization we are still living in the technological world of the early 1980s), endless talk of life extention, yet all the promising avenues are made illegal, we still get 30 miles per gallon in our cars after 100 years of “progress” and “innovation”, zero progress has been made in genetic treatments, or cancer research or frankly anything important to human quality of life.

    Now, obviously these thing have been figured out long ago in private, but so long as they remain private they don’t exist.

    • Father Krespi on November 5, 2011 at 5:46 am

      I got a 2008 Toyota truck and I get 16 miles to the gallon. That is the same gas mileage Ford’s Model T got back in 1920 (so I’ve been told).

    • sue trimble on November 24, 2011 at 8:25 pm

      I agree with you brother but I would like to share a story about a Dr in Houston Tx who has been curing cancer for a few decades now. Please google the Burzynski Research Institute. It’s a story of hope for all mankind and also of tyranny from the medical drug cartel. After researching Dr Burzynski’s treatment for cancer and also what radiation and chemo does to the human body, If I ever contracted cancer, I would immediately head to The Burzynski Research Institute.

      Also, I would like to wish Dr Farrell a speedy recovery. I’m not a religious nut but I do pray to my Creator and I will say one for you tonight. I do believe… I also want to say I am hooked on your books, your theories, and your apparent humility. Please don’t stop, I think I would probably go into withdrawals.

    Don’t rub this ‘aladdin lamp’ in the wrong manner. Because getting that bad-boy genie back into lockdown isn’t going to happen.
    They are already playing vega-matic with the gene slicing & dicing, not to mention the crossing of species, sex. etc. This wild cocktail is, of course, intoxicating, but what happens the morning after? Abort? Play truth or consequences?
    Something tells me we’re passing in the fast lane, across the yellow lines of finance, science, mechanisms of control, etc., etc. – that portend a ‘what was I thinking?’ sobering moment – ex post facto.
    Is somebody driving this mad, mad, mad vehicle? Does some entity have their hands on ‘the wheel’?
    Or is there some plan of escape for an elite few?
    Can the cat land on its feet with her nine lives not spent?

    Curiouser & Curiouser.

    • paul degagne on November 5, 2011 at 2:45 am

      Hello Robert,

      Is someone driving the car? Very, very good question? There’s no way to know with absolute certainty?

      Premise one: No one is driving the car = it is all just blind forces pushing us further and further to where……?

      Premise two: There is some Wizard of Oz ( collective group) pulling the levers at the higher levels where DECISIONS’ make a difference.

      In the Big Theme PICTURE of it ALL I don’t believe anyone has that kind of POWER> (unless what feeds the Sun is also a dimension where entities dwell BUT that is leaving the WORLD WE EXIST IN)

      It is all CHAOS/FLUX and we don’t or cant understand it or refuse to accept it – Premise One.

      Premise two (in my eyes) is the more interesting for there are possibilities?

      I like the words COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGE. If you have an advantage over others and are reasonable intelligent or even very intelligent then you can put this EDGE (HUGE or SMALL) to great use!

      Outside of the Big and UNCONSCIOUS picture this is what I think is happening today in the world. One of the reasons I still am sticking somewhat with areas of Farrell’s approach is because it seems LEVEL-HEADED in the sense where the ELITE or the RULERS are not in complete AGGREEMENT! They may be in screwing the MASSES but amongst them selves there’s conflict going on.

      I really need to keep this levelness in mind because after a while reading all the valuable conspiracy and not so valuable conspiracy reasoning one come to what APPEARS to be a really big DEAD END. IN FACT the Elite, the Illuminati, the NWO, the Reptiles, the Masters or whatever one so desires to call THEM allow much to get out of the bag because IT KNOWS OUR FORM OF (sic) linear REASONING OFTEN ENOUGH JUST LEADS TO MORE ——APATHY = the truth can really get you DOWN and I don’t mean this in a JIVE or GOOD sense. More like (LOOK INTO THE ABYSS AND THE ABYSS LOOKS BACK AT YOU)

      Very SCARY and depressing if I might add my own two bits from the peanut gallery.

      That is why I LOVE THESE MYTHOLOGICAL —STORES — ways of people who lived long ago or even EONS ago.

      IT COUNTERACTS the fact that we are living and alive IN A pretty FLAT SOCIETY shaped and ENGINEERED to EXTRACT everything it CAN from US and then to THROW US AWAY (disposeable/expendable) when finished with us. ( really INHUMANE)

      Have you ever in your unthinking days THROWN A COKE-A-COLA bottle out the car window. I have! That’s what we need to stop doing. Substitute anything for the coke-bottle.

      (I am speculating in this post, so don’t get bent out of shape if by chance you read what I wrote differently — do not hesitate for moment to think the BOSSES don’t have their little minnows NOT scanning our IDEAS for future reference. (see what I mean by discouraging for we can all turn into some kind of PARANOID PETES.for someone WOULD LIKE THAT—- BUT….?

      There’s something THEIR missing and I am not going to bring it up. KEEP THEM GUESSING if none of them are truly AWARE!

      It is something like DOG spelt backwards but not in the sense we have been taught. More in the sense of a TRICKSTER or the GREAT EQUALIZER OR LEVELER! ( that is the FAITH I still continue to BELIEVE – kind of an ODD ECOLOGY — a way of compensating for the LACK OF JUSTICE in our world.

      And NO mIzgreen — those tales or stories are only weird sounding to WEIRD PEOPLE. It’s just ANTHROPOLOGY at it’s FINEST!

      • paul degagne on November 5, 2011 at 3:49 am

        I can imagine someone here saying —- OUTSIDE??????

        I am not going to get IN = ?????? TO = ??????? that connundrum for as you may know already

        ( if you DON’T have fun but it gets VERY tedious after a while.)

        It’s one GREAT BIG————- LABYRINTH————-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Father Krespi on November 4, 2011 at 7:59 am

    You wonder how much of the animal world were laboratory creations from the days of Atlantis or Lemuria? A duckbilled platapus is pretty weird. Maybe unicorns, satyrs, minotaurs, and the pegasus were man made creatures. How about a laboratory created dragon as a war weapon? After the descendants of the Atlantean sorcerers get bored with using their energy weapons to pester the masses with horrific weather and earthquakes, maybe they will unleash dragons on us. I expect the battlefield of the not too distant future will look pretty strange with giant ogres and many other genetic inventions.

    Was JRR Tolkein really just writing about ancient history?
