DARPA: ASSEMBLY-LINE HUMANS?

This was emailed to me, and there are things in it that require some commentary:

The Next Genetic Assembly Line

I am not at all surprised, nor, I suspect, are you, that DARPA (the Defense Advanced research Projects Agency) would be, once again, on the cutting edge of advocating a "genetic assembly line" for reproducing a "new" kind of human being, born in an Ehrlenmeyer flask and nurtured in a laboratory culture, as it were. After all, DARPA gave us the internet, and with it, gave us a huge and massive cultural transformation which we are still in the midst of, and which no one really knows the conclusion of. That DARPA would seek this latest combination of genetic with social engineering should come as no surprise, for it is an essentially transhumanist goal, and if Dr. de Hart and I are correct in our forthcoming transhumanism book, it would seem that this "philosophy" has been adopted by that agency, or at least, by parties and elements within it.

My first concern is a moral and ethical one, and it was touched off by this paragraph:

"The Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA) has partnered with Venter Launch Assembly Line for Genetic Engineering to begin what could be called the next generation of smart beings. I will refrain from calling them humans, because it is unclear at this point how is it that a being born in a lab will resemble one of us. Instead, it seems, the adventure DARPA is envisioning appears to be all about using biology and genetic engineering to produce living cells which will then be turned into some kind of living beings; perhaps humans."(Emphasis added)

While it is disturbing enough that this latest venture is being conducted in part with Dr. Craig Venter, I was greatly disturbed by the implications of the statement I have italicized in the above quotation. The implication of the statement is that someone brought into life through processes of genetic engineering - cloning perhaps - is somehow "unhuman" or perhaps, "sub-human." I can well recall conversations I had with various people in churchianity almost two decades ago, where some of my interlocutors actually maintained that a clone would not have a soul since it was brought into life by methods "other than the usual," a position that would seem to ignore their own religious texts, and certain patristic doctrines (one thinks of Tertullian's traducianism here).

The idea is profoundly disturbing for an obvious reason: to say that someone is less-than-human or questionably human simply because f the intervention of technological processes (or anything else for that matter), would seem to embark us on that slippery slope we've been down before, with the Nazis. IN order for them to get their stooges to murder on a genocidal scale, certain groups of people had to be "redefined" as "sub-human": Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, Slavs, black people....on and on the list went, as we well know.  We hear resonances of this doctrine already in certain fundamentalist Christian quarters, with the idea - popularized by the Dake Study Bible - that all those murders in the Old Testament ordered by Yahweh were because the people being slaughtered were of Nephilimic bloodlines... of course, the people taking this "theological" view never seem to notice that there was no basis in genetic science to back up this assertion. Nor, for that matter, did the Nazis have any beyond the pseudo-scientific "proofs" of their "anthropologists" taking phrenological and physiological measurements. "High cheekbone? Woops! You're a Slav... and ergo, sub-human". We are watching the potential birth of a new kind of fundamentalism here, one that would argue, on the slimmest basis, that such creations are "not human."

But the quotation - and my logic in its examination - also raises other profound questions, chief among them, this: you'll note that the essence of the implied logic of the quotation is that "human" is defined in primarily materialist and environmental terms: a certain genetic code brought into existence by certain methods (sex), and raised in a certain kind of environment (families, neighborhoods, etc), and that anything else is not "human." Well, I'm all for families, nurture, and everything else, but by the same token, we do not classify children of broken homes (the "non-normal" environment) as sub-human.  In short, we are, like it or not, being compelled by technological advances - and what certain people want to do with them - to scrutinize our humanity, and if the implications of the quotation are any indicator, we're off to a very bad start.

...Now then, all that said, on to a completely different problem: Morgellon's disease. I draw your attention to these significant statements:

"Enter a new field of study and application known as Transbiology. This is the manipulation of naturally occurring biological beings through nanotechnology or biotechnology as well as the creation of new living things using advanced techniques from genetic engineering. Nowadays, we have scientific advancements that not only allow knowledgeable people to sequence human DNA, from which they can begin to ‘innovate’ , but who also the proven applications to turn such knowledge into products. As in the case of Morgellons Disease, scientists developed  crystals which develop filaments or fibers that create their own red blood cells capable of resisting extreme conditions such as heat, high levels of chemicals, cold, acid, and so on. These fibers even have the capacity to grow outside the human body in a laboratory environment. Similar fibers are found in patients with Morgellons Disease.

Accomplishing this vision requires an approach that is more than multidisciplinary – it requires a new engineering discipline built upon the integration of new ideas, approaches and tools from fields spanning computer science and electrical engineering to chemistry and the biological sciences.  The best innovations will introduce new architectures and tools into an open technology platform to rapidly move new designs from conception to execution.” This is perhaps the best statement to confirm what DARPA is up to, except that it is not a project that will be completed in the future, but one that is well underway. Note the involvement the project requires and how the application of different techniques confirms what Morgellons researchers have found to be genetically engineered, human-like products.

There it is, yet another indicator of a possible link between this bizarre "transhumanist" agenda and Morgellons' disease, a disease that the CDC confidently tells us does not exist.

Well, I have news for them: I have a friend with this disease: I have seen his suffering, and I have seen those fibers... the sad thing is, that it may be yet another one of those laboratory-engineered phenomena - perhaps gone awry, perhaps not - and all the official wheels of government and big corporate medicine are grinding out a never-ending stream of propaganda to deny it: yet another perversion of science, the same corporations that now advertise drugs on television where half the commercial is spent listing side effects, most of which seem to be death by a variety of means: stroke, heart attack, cancers, terminal flatulence, etc. It is a sad commentary on our culture, society, and "medicine" that we even have to stop and think: "Is he really human? or was he born in a laboratory? Will this pill really work? or give me a stroke? These fibers growing out of these lesions can't be real: the CDC says so...."

See you on the flip side.

    If soul is real and some souls exist in a state of limbo, could artificial hosts be created to be ensouled?

    Tree of life (DNA), disembodied soul (fallen angel), was Adam ensouled hence the fall? If angels are spirit how on earth did Lot ‘eat’ with angels? What once was, isn’t but is to come?

  2. Blogging about these absolutely ridiculous things going on
    in the world, so ludicrous and silly as to be insane, and never,
    never realize what an insane world it surely is……
    are you all blind?
    Too much of the really stupid stuff they call entertainment (?)
    What ? can have you all accepting this as if it is just another boring day ?

  3. Atlantis redux.

    I had a dream about a year or so ago. In the dream, I found myself in a natural enclosure (kind of like San Diego’s Wild Animal Park). I came across a woman who had the face of a human (kind of) but she had a mane like a male lion and her body was furry. When she saw me, she came over to me and touched my face. Then she turned in shame and sank to her knees in sobs. I “knew” it was because, by seeing me, she realized what she SHOULD be like. My heart was rendered in two.

    When I woke, I wondered if it was a past life memory or whether that woman was ME in another time and place. But my overall feeling was that I had wandered, in the ALL-space, into a project going on NOW somewhere by the secret government. They they literally are already creating human chimeras.

    Allegedly, this is one of the primary reasons for the decline of Atlantis. The cruelty that was inflicted on these “less than humans,” who were literally bred to be servants, slaves and sex-partners, was immense. Some say there was a rebellion eventually.

    All I know is that it felt WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! But I have no doubt that it is already being done and this article is the classic way that TPTB let us know, drip by drip, what is already in the pipeline for our future, engineered by them.

    May we all wake up en masse and NOT go down this road again….It didn’t work then and it won’t work now. Some say that Americans are primarily reincarnated Atlanteans and that we will face the same moral dilemmas to see if we can learn from past mistakes and choose another course. I truly hope enough people wake up in time to prevent another global tragedy of this order.

      The Soul connects on certain levels. At higher levels, it integrates with Spirit, called HyperSpace. Your “dream” experience may have been a ‘realtime’ connect in HyperSpace. Yes, this, & much more, are taking place in/on this HyperCube, Earth.

    “Once again, the writer[genetic scribblers] stains the tree of History with his thoughts[souless?], but it is not for us to find the trick that would enable us to put the animal[ruling elites] back in its carrying cage.”
    -OSIP MANDELSTAM, ‘The End of the Novel’

    Born on third base, but thinks he hit a triple.

  5. I assure everyone here that lab created creatures will and do have souls. Anything that has a capacity to exercises freedom of choice is a soul.

    1. The soul is not the body or of the body. The soul enters at the point of conception of a body of focus. Whether this point of potential focus emergence originates in a test tube or womb makes no difference. They are both valid points of entrance with the only difference being in the quality of materials and construction. Some doorways into these potential experiences are a boon and some are a bust. Some lives are more enjoyable and last longer than others, depending upon chance, choices and quality. Some souls are advanced enough in potential and awareness to choose their point of origin and enter this realm with a preconceived purpose. Others are pulled into bodies willy nilly because of the attractive charge generated at conception of which they were the closest soul potential with the most compatible resonance.

    2. Actually, everything has ‘soul’ or consciousness. It’s not a matter of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ but in terms of degree from ‘rocks’ to ‘us’. As such, ethics will be scaled to match what it ‘is’, but everything is liv-ing.

  6. I am not expert, and claim no knowledge here, I am just throwing this out for consideration.

    But I remember reading some statement years ago, probably from some unverifiable “psychic” source, that said that if we create humans in the lab (clones or whatever), it’s not that they will be “subhuman,” but simply that they will not have what we call a “soul.” This is not a moral label applied by us, it is simply the technical reality. Genetics and labs can create bodies, in other words, but it cannot (yet) create what animates those bodies.

    My own speculation is that, well, there are probably some “souls” out there, probably in league with those creating bodies in labs, who are planning on taking the drivers seat for any new and improved “bodies.”

    Just speculation.

    In a world filled with material-oriented masses, souless automatons, what difference would it make if “the next step” in devolution is initiated? Its an entropic concommitant. Programmable humans with no link to spirit self-potentials. The species is reaping its result of placid mindlessness: serve the masters. The $masters comply: “you are a meat product.”

  8. sounds a bit like a immaculate conception, manufacturing humans. As for children of broken homes being less than human, not really, just apart from there fathers knowledge and thus more acceptable to slavery. A slave is a beast of burden for its owner.

    Seems sometimes as we fight over our share of the pie, a radian slice, we some how forgot to listen to the bakers son.

    DNA manipulation, sure, The Lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, a coma, and created a help meet, perhaps lost in translation that phrase is, maybe a helper made of meat. A machine could live for ever and ever.
    In a picture of Ahknenaten and Nephertys it shows DNA manipulation and sits in a German museum for all to discover. Hidden in plain sight.
    My brother did say he would leave graven images for us and so he has.

    The planet being turned into a desert void of life….that is the end game and that will not happen.

    1. Blinkered ignorant sexist dung, which is just a denial of the humanity of those from a “broken” home. Not at all ironic that you’d affirm that ostensible detraction.

    2. If children of a broken home, and this is a pretty white concept, suffers a personal tragedy, blending two distinct races is a greater tragedy. Genociding, my race, the white race, is a big step toward declaring some not human. Blended humanity, blended everything.
