PLAYING DARPA: CREATING THE SUPER-SOLDIER, AND LOSING HUMANITY

One of the things that Dr. de Hart and I encountered over and over again in our research for Transhumanism: A Grimoir of Alchemical Agendas, was not only the alchemical nature of the phenomenon, but the idea of the super-soldier as being one of the goals.

DARPA Continues Human Experiments to Create Military Super Soldiers

I hope you caught the massive implications of what is being said in this article. First, notice the budget of $2 billion dollars being spent to realize this Frankenstein nightmare, and that's just the funding we know about. Imagine, when added to this, all the money being gleaned from black budgets and all their murky sources of "financing."

But second, notice the blatant return to a theme we heard coming out of the crazed and hoarse voices in Germany in the 1930s, and their race to create the Aryan superman, the "human" super-being bereft of normal human compassion. Consider just these two statements:

"Some of the medical feats DARPA would like to enhance are the ability of military soldiers to regrow limbs destroyed in battle."

"Scientists are researching the construction of soldiers that feel no pain, terror and do not suffer from fatigue as tests on the wiring of the human brain are furthered by Jonathan Moreno, professor of bioethics at Pennsylvania State University. Moreno is working with the DoD in understanding neuroscience."

Combining these two statements yields a being that feels no pain, and presumably no terror from the threat of death precisely because it can regrow limbs (and therefore, potentially repair any other injury). In short, one is dealing with a kind of virtual immortality, and that of a soldier.

I submit that when one loses this basic fear, in the full knowledge that no rational harm can come to it, that this being will lose normal human compassion: the temptation will be to see such a super-soldier as a sort of god. After all, the ancient gods, from Yahweh to Marduk and Errakal and Zeus, viewed a different way, were but warlords, and immortal ones at that.  That this consequence - the immortal and a-moral super-soldier - seems to be in mind is evidenced in the following remark:

"While Roger Pitman , professor of psychiatry at Harvard University is experimenting with propranolol which is a beta blocker that is believed to erase “terrifying memories”, soldiers are subjected to more research while serving to alleviate the psychological effects of war. Moreno explains: 'The problem is: what else are they blocking when they do this? Do we want a generation of veterans who return without guilt?'"

What is disturbing is that the lessons of history do not seem to have been learned. What we are reading here is an immoral purpose being conceived for science; what we are reading here is Nazism's Aryan super-man, Nietzsche's Uebermensch, Stalin's "New Soviet Man," updated and made palatable, because surely it cannot happen here. After all, we are a democracy.

It is a tale as old as humanity itself, from Greece to Giza, from Babylon to the Bible, from the Vedas to Viracocha, the story is told over an over, for it too, is a lesson not of myth, but of history: for having created the ultimate creature, the gods soon learned that they had made it far too intelligent and powerful, and that it was a threat to them.  DARPA appears to have read the texts, but misunderstood the lesson.

See you on the flip side.

  1. when you think of where our memories are stored are they SURE they know where they are.you may be digging dandy lions with a back hoe .lawn wouldn’t look to pretty .you’d get the dandy lion though.

  2. 1. Glad to see you are now “hip” to Suzanne Posel. She’s a pistol, that one!

    2. From the embedded article: “Scientists are researching the construction of soldiers that feel no pain, terror and do not suffer from fatigue as tests on the wiring of the human brain are furthered by Jonathan Moreno, professor of bioethics at Pennsylvania State University”

    ….BioETHICS??????

    Makes me want to scream!

    Where is the ETHICS in this???????

    You, and other commenters are right-on, this is scary beyond belief. Your quote about the “god’s” and their creations triggered at a WHOLE new level in me! Before now, I had always interpreted those “created beings” as US! Humans! What’s so bad about that, right? But what this article, and your focus, is showing us is that these technological “improvements” will take any heart, any empathy, anything like HUMAN right out of the mix.

    Can hardly wait to receive your “Transhuman” book. I’m sure it will trigger MANY thoughtforms along these lines…however uncomfortable.

    I still rather hold to the view that we (USA, especially) are either reincarnated Atlanteans, doing a “redux/re-do” of our messed up past, or that Atlantis is really our FUTURE, and we seem to be marching steadily toward it.

    Ay cavalt! Heaven help us, and may we PUHLEEZE get it right this time. The alternative is TOTALLY not acceptable, on any level…

    1. Great post Ramura, I am in full agreement with you on that. Reminds me of some lines from the new Doctor Who series.

      Henry van Statten: “What does it look like?”
      The Doctor: “A nightmare. It’s a mutation. The Dalek race was genetically engineered. Every single emotion was removed except hate. ”

      Oh the world we live in.

  3. When armies of such creatures face each other in battle then there truly will be Armageddon. Though robbed of their humanity they will fight with all the ferocity and savagery that humans can display. Truly, such creatures are more terrifying than robotic soldiers. This is chilling.

      How about a war between the soulless, emotionless cyborgs and the emotionally damaged guinea pig soldiers shaped during the last decade or so in our imperial wars? It would make a good science fiction movie.

      I was reading this article regarding the Venetian black nobility:

      http://www.schillerinstitute.org/fid_91-96/954_Gallagher_Venice_rig.html

      I was unfamiliar with this history until I read Babylon Banksters and I eagerly await the sequel. In the above article there is much mention of the Moguls and their symbiotic relationship with the Venice banksters. It is actually quite sobering when you start to consider the depths of evil these banksters are capable of. It can almost cause one to lose hope. The destruction waylaid on humanity by these two forces in collusion is just utterly horrifying. I also understand why Dr. Farrell compares that gloomy era of the banksters to our present age. And it is hard to escape thoughts of the apocalyptic havoc they banksters are capable of unleashing on us if the need or whim arises. One thing this wonderful website has done for me is helped me overcome those nasty proclivities induced by the alternate media culture(?) of rapidly impending doom– the chicken little effect. But these banksters are an absolute horrendous force of evil. Is there some physics to this evil that someone can explain to this humble potato farmer? I don’t know what to make of such a malevolent force.

      So, to get back on topic, after reading this article I started wondering who would be the modern day version of the banksters mercenary force the Moguls? The Chinese, the Mexicans, The US, Blackwater, or even a newly carved fanatical muslim empire? But it could very well be this Frankenstein army operating autonomously of all nation states and taking orders solely from the banksters. Chilling.

      Sorry for all the morbidity but it is just not a cheerful world when you know too much about the banksters.

  4. “a lesson not of myth, but of history: for having created the ultimate creature, the gods soon learned that they had made it far too intelligent and powerful, and that it was a threat to them.”

    obviously even the gods haven’t yet learned much from their mistakes-

    “if there’s a universal mind, must it be sane?”- attributed to Charles Fort

    “insanity is continuously repeating the same mistake and expecting different results”- anon.
