On this site, and in my book Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas with co-author Dr. Scott D de Hart, I have argued that the phenomenon of transhumanism, the movement, is effectively an alchemical one, in that it aims at the total transformation of mankind, and its environment. In the book, Dr. de Hart and I argued additionally that this alchemical agenda was not vague, it was specifically tied to each of the four stages of the descent of man as viewed in esoteric and alchemical lore, from a primordial androgyny, through mineral, vegetable, and animal stages.

Our argument there was that the reascent back up that ladder would be accomplished via the technological fusions of man and animal, man and plant, and finally, man and machine, or mineral. On this website I have pointed out the strides being made in wiring computer chips directly into the brains of mice and so on, and downloading and uploading the memories of mice from one chip to another, and so on.

The problem is, how to engineer the acceptance of such technologies in society and culture. Well, one possibility for social engineering of a major scale has always been the military, and in particular, the US military. It is a now well-known fact that in the aftermath of World War Two, the military was deliberated used to foster a form of social engineering - in this case, that of racial integration - when a great segment of American society in the south was utterly opposed to it.

Now, it seems, a similar exercise in social engineering is being contemplated, though it is not, for now, being sold or spun that way:

The US Military Wants To 'Microchip' Troops

Now it should come as no surprise that DARPA is behind this, and we can see already how the interface is going to be "sold" as a beneficial thing: these chips are for the sole purpose of tracking troops' health. Imagine the benefits to grandma: "I've fallen and can't get up" commercials will change: grandma will no longer have to be conscious after her fall to push the little button on her home medical alert system. The computer chip will simply detect that grandma has knocked herself senseless and have sent for the paramedics, and that's a good thing.And of course, while we're at it, we might as well put a global positioning transponder in Private Jones to monitor where he or she is. Additionally, one may envision chips to enhance performance of all sorts as a component of the supersoldier of the future.

The article notes that there are those who look at this development with some alarm, as the first step in a "chips for all" scenario, and indeed, I would number myself as one of those who view it with some alarm, and indeed, the article points out that it is the military which again spearheads the social and cultural change. But let's not forget DARPA's role as an agent and agency for cultural change and social engineering: the whole Internet, let us recall, was essentially a DARPA creation (remember ARPANET?), as was the decision to "take it public" to effect a social transformation, and, incidentally, put into place the first block of a global system of surveillance that we are also seeing being erected before our eyes.

Where I disagree with the article's prognostications are the idea that global positioning and monitoring would be feasible in such chips in the military. If an enemy were to take prisoners, for example, those prisoners would by the nature of the case, give away potential enemy positions... leading inevitably to some enemies not bothering to take prisoners are all... and that logic I submit is the clearest indicator that the idea to chip military personnel is not about military enhancement at's about social engineering.

See you on the flip side.

    It has been reported that the shooter in the recent massacre was unable to feel any emotional or physical pain. He would put his hand in a flame or on a hot iron and not feel anything. He had no empathy. The social engineering of the counter-initiation has been in the process of creating this kind of person even without any technological manipulation. The technological manipulation is only its tragic denouement. I (and others) have argued that the roots of this process can be found in the Reformation, with a great impetus from the Enlightenment.

    He was obviously capable of making explosives if he wasn’t able to get a hold of guns. But the drawing attention to guns will divert the public’s attention from the real cultural causes and tend to suppress a deeper analysis.

    Just beaking news of another “shooting”.
    As these “shootings” have been a subject at this site; I want to say again that these “shootings” appear to be engineered by media spin, and other nefarious instruments, as an attempt to strike at the 2nd amendment.
    Of course, the bill of rights has been used for target practice for some time. Although some tattered remains are still standing on the elite’s firing range.

    Ironic(second use today) that it is:
    the gun that is is being targeted for elimination.
    (at least from the peoples’ point of view)

    Reminds me of the internal bank$ters cartel being called “the Federal Reserve” so the ventriloqiust congress could dummy-up their constrituents when it came to light. After all it was passed in the dead of night on New Years Eve. It was to stop the Up & Downs, Booms & Busts, and Depressions. When in fact it was engineered to do just the opposite. Look where we are today with a Financial Gun pointed to the Head of Congress as they rob the public blind(not that they haven’t already been socially engineered as blind).

    This is another foot inside that crack in the door; but remember, that door always closes from behind.

    “The subtlety of nature is many times over than the sustlety of the senses of understanding.”
    – Sir Francis Bacon

    In the US under President Carter, and soon after in the UK, patent protection was granted for manipulation of natural cell properties. With this, mankind began a downhill race to the bottom, to profit from the building blocks of life.

    Deciever & decieved are teapped in a coevevolutionary struggle that improves adaptation on both sides. One adaptation is intelligence itself. It is ironic(I’ve said this before, and it’s worth repeating) that dishonesty has often been the file against which intellectional tools have been sharpened. The smarte the species, the more often deception occurs.

    Unfortunately, it is here in this
    “transhuman” matter,
    – it also applies to self-deception.

    I think the Military has been utilized as an avenue of social engineering since at least WWI–so it makes sense that it would continue to be used that way. Hollywood, especially with prime time programming, is also a major conduit of social engineering. What the government can accomplish through television, films, and their lackeys in the lamestream media makes Goebbels look like a rank amateur. There are plans to write pro Obamacare propaganda into the scripts of prime time programming–but it’s obvious that kind of stuff has been going on for a long time and will continue. If you want to make something palatable to public, just spoon feed it with sugar in prime time. You can bypass the critical faculty and exclude the negatives. Before you know it, the population will embrace enthusiastically something which previously had been abhorrent to them. The culture gets transformed, not with a bang, not even with a whimper.

      And of course, government employees (usually spies of some sort iirc) have had ‘chips’ in them for years now on TV. LA FEMME NIKITA from around 1996-2000 comes to mind, but I am pretty sure I’ve seen the idea many times on TV and movies.

      So the media preparation has been in place long before this recent announcement for soldiers.

    Oh sure WND that’s trustworthy, not.
