Here's one that must have them burning the midnight oil at DARPA, and to see how and why, just read this (and my thanks to Mr. V.T. for apprising me of this interesting development):
One can imagine the transhumanist glee of some overpaid Frankenstein in that agency as he (or she), read these words:
"By manipulating only three genetic letters, scientists were able to functionally "jumpstart" regulatory activity in a zebrafish.
"The authors also show that SOX4 and SOX11 are important for the layering of the neocortex, an essential change that led to increased complexity of the brain organization in mammals, including humans.
"'Together, our fine motor skills that allow us to manipulate tools, walk, speak, and write, as well as our cognitive and emotional abilities that allow us to think, love, and plan all derive from these changes," Sestan said."
"Hooray!" they must be thinking. "Why, with just a little more study and a little more engineering, we might be able to engineer whatever sort of brain and emotional response we wish!" That, indeed, is the goal - as Dr. de Hart and I outline in our forthcoming transhumanism book - the engineering of super-soldiers, of robotical conscience-less assassins that would make a Dr. Ewan Cameron of MKULTRA fame green with envy. This isn't, of course, the only goal of the various human-engineering projects under way, but it gives you the idea.
For an elite wanting a race of compliant worker bees, the present situation is intolerable. People continue to think on their own, they're increasingly cynical toward their bought-out governments and co-opted, unresponsive political parties, and, with the internet, they increasingly challenge the directed history narratives that the elites churn out in the various academic disciplines and in the world at large. With these developments, of course, they are one step closer to their goal...
You can bet that the encrypted, secure phone-lines between such black projects agencies and their corporate contractors are buzzing... they should hope the Chinese aren't listening in....
See you on the flip side.
