The transhumanist agenda marches on, though, as this article suggests, one might go so far as to view it as a transgaia agenda, an agenda not just to transform mankind, but all life as we know it here on mother Earth, and indeed, the Earth itself:
In Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas, co-author Scott DeHart and I outlined how the agribusiness giants used the principle of "substantial equivalence" to bypass concerns about their genetically engineered plants, in order to foist them upon a market without adequate scientific testing, in spite of the concerns being raised by scientists. This same principle, however, was overlooked when the very same companies were applying for patents on their genetic modifications.They further used their influence to play former executives within government monitoring and regulatory agencies.
The same is now happening with insects:
"The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is highlighted as one of several examples showing how industry organises its influence. In EFSA´s GM insects working group, which was established to develop guidance for risk assessment of genetically engineered insects, there are several cases of conflicts of interest, including experts with links to Oxitec who only partially declared their interests. The draft Guidance on risk assessment of GM insects shows some significant deficiencies: for example it does not consider the impacts of GM insects on the food chain. Oxitec’s GM insects are genetically engineered to die mostly at the larval stage so dead GM larvae will enter the food chain inside food crops such as olives, cabbages and tomatoes. Living GM insects could also be transported on crops to other farms or different countries. EFSA has excluded any consideration of these important issues from its draft guidance. Many other issues are not properly addressed.
"The briefing also highlights problems with a World Health Organisation (WHO)-funded project which has allowed the company to bypass requirements for informed consent for the release of GM mosquitoes. The WHO-funded Mosqguide project, which was supposed to be developing best practice, also allowed the company to gain approval from Brazilian regulators to release 16 million GM mosquitoes before draft regulations on the release of GM insects had been finalised or adopted, without publishing a risk assessment." (Emphasis in the original)
Once again, we are seeing just how insane the corporate world, and its financial overlords, really are, for with no risk assessment, these lackeys of lucre and playing fast and loose not only with us, not only with themselves, but with the world, with humanity. Sadly what this also highlights is the near-total breakdown of the modern regulatory democracy, for not only in the USA but in the UK, agencies and ministries ostensibly for the purpose of protecting the common weal and public good, are bypassed, co-opted, bought, and when none of these work, just simply bypassed and ignored.
But notice the opening words:
"Look out people of planet earth, genetically engineered bugs are here. Just in case you haven’t figured it out yet, our technocracy is working ever diligently on genetically engineering every last living cell on the planet – WITHOUT EXCEPTION. What does this mean for life here on earth? Ever hear the expression “soup sandwich?” Well, after these “scientific” geniuses are through with us, that is exactly what all life will be – a genetic soup sandwich, made in a lab, and stamped with a corporate logo embedded in our DNA. If the following report from Testbiotech doesn’t send chills up your spine, I don’t know what will. Get ready world, because nothing will ever be the same. Ever. There is no remediation technique available to clean up genetically engineered mutations released into the wild and spread through horizontal gene transfer."
What this portends, I am bold to suggest, is exactly what I implied at the beginning of this article: that transhumanism as a phenomenon, as a trend of the times so to speak, is already morphing into a "transgaia" movement, a movement to transform not only man but his environment, by claiming mastery over all life in it.
This is, of course, an ancient spiritual agenda and problem... rumor has it, it didn't work out too well the last time...
....See you on the flip side.
