FRINGE SCIENCE, TRANSHUMANISM, 3D PRINTING, AND …
A regular reader here, Mr. V.T. has shared two important articles, and as I mentioned in a previous blog, this week's blog-scheduling task was a lot of fun for me, because so many of you sent so many wonderful articules on strange and wonderful things, and downright bizarre things, happening in the world of transhumanist science that the "final cut" selection process in determining what to write about has been very difficult. In fact, it's been so difficult that my normal day-long process of reading, selecting, and scheduling two weeks' worth of blogs has taken me two days, not just one. But it's been well worth it, and these two articles that Mr. V.T. sent along for our consideration here at this site are worth mentioning.
First a bit of background about the first article, which I enclose because in a way it is the fulfillment of a prediction, in this case, a prediction made by the noted British literary critic, Oxford don, member of the well-known "Inklings" group with Charles Williams and J.R.R. Tolkien, and science fiction author, C.S. Lewis. In the final version of his space trilogy, a novel called That Hideous Strength, Lewis envisions a fictious entity much like the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. In his case, the agency is called the National Institute for Coordinated Experiments, otherwise known as NICE. Lewis' NICE is anything but nice, but is rather a kind of amalgam of every transhumanist meme one can think of, including grizzly experiments designed to cut off a person's head (in this case, an executed criminal) and keep it alive via a variety of technologies.
Well, it seems the idea of transplanted heads and experiments in consciousness preservation are not new:
Transhumanism will change everyting
That's right: monkey's heads have been transplanted from one body to another and the result stayed alive for seven days, preserving the monkey-personality as well. The phenomenon is not all that unusual, for organ transplant recipients often record that they have some access to the memories and even personalities of those from whom they have received organs, and this suggests, of course, that there is a link between genetics and memory that is not well understood, but that is often speculated about under the heading of "genetic memory." Indeed, co-author Dr. Scott D de Hart and I both suggested in our book Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas, that accessing such memories appears to be a component of some shamanistic practice, as revealed by the research of anthropologist Jeremy Narby.
But now there's this:
Biotech Firm: We Will 3D Print A Human Liver In 2014
Now this use of 3D printing as a medical technology is nothing new, for those who have been following the 3D printing meme will be well aware of the various stories already reported relating the successful use of 3D printing in creating various organic tissues, with the idea of whole organs being the inevitable follow-on. The usefulness of such a technology is readily apparent, and, for those with moral scruples about stem cell research, also intriguing, for imaging being able to 3D print an organ without using stem cells, to replace an ailing organ in an individual with, say, a deteriorating heart, or, as the above article on neurophysiology suggests in this context, a new brain for someone suffering from always-terminal glioblastomas. With the head transplant technology already in hand and demonstrated, replacement brain transplants are already imagineable.
But there's another implication here, and I hope the reader caught it. I've been blogging all week about strange advances in technologies and capabilities, and I've touched upon the idea of combining two things - one a technology and one a phenomenon - to create a first generation version of a Star Trek transporter. The phenomenon is quantum entanglement, and the technology is the 3d printer. Combine the two, and one might conceivably have the technology to teleport not just atoms, but whole objects, including organic objects.
So the printing of an entire organ, as this article states might happen in 2014, will be another step on the road to a transformation of human capability, society, and culture that will dwarf any previous "age of transition." This story is one to watch folks, for if it happens, as I believe eventually it will, then the expansion of capability will follow quickly. Imagine not having to ship things any more! Want to buy that new set of patio furniture? just download it online, and print it. Need a heart transplant? Consult your 3D Printing Medical Specialist... And to draw from the Fringe series once again, it may come to the point that even the 3D physician is rendered superfluous in this respect, just "bake that ear" in the oven like Dr. Walter Bishop, and schedule the appropriate out patient "procedure" with your local general practitioner or nurse practioner...
See you on the flip side...

The shipping industry is infamous for putting the brakes on teleportation. Like pulling a mule up a ladder. Hah! Planes, trains, trucks and boats and the white niggurz that drives em. The poor things would probably put a bullet in your brain pan if you tried to take away their pitiful jobs. But seriously folks, I can practically feel (so to speak) the new foreskin now. The Frenulum, Meissners corpuscles, 100,000+ exquisitely sensitive erotogenic nerve receptors, the inner mucosa (also produces plasma cells which secrete antibodies), estrogen receptors (Why? We don’t know!), and Apocrine glands, which are specific to the inner foreskin and secrete pheromones. Everything that was lost to the circumcision 62 years ago. Mamas, lock up yer daughters, L’il Richie’s back in town…making up for lost time. Go Seahawks! Go Foregen!!!
just as an aside and I hope I’m not being too far off-topic for responding to Dr. Farrell’s posting (well, more to the commentators), but I thought I was the only “nut-case” on this forum to be aware of Peter David Beter’s unsettling testimonies and to believe that maybe this man was actually telling the truth, but waaay ahead of his time-
please stay well Dr. Farrell and all-
Now it only “Morality” could become even a pixel in the mix.
Just get her foot into the door; to become some part of the solution, instead of a corporate problem to extinguish.
Peter David Beter is all to real and isn’t going away.
Adam Weishaupt is all to real and isn’t going away.
Adolf Roth-child bastard Hitler is all to real and isn’t going away.
Curiously, Beter’s audio letter n. 1 (txt format) dated 1975 talks about the Fort Know Missing Gold. Here we are, 39 years later and “we the people” are still none the wiser…
if one is interested (and if I call correctly) it was audio nr. 40 where Beter explained the hideously entwined connections between the Harvey Milk/SF Mayor Moscone killings, the Cuban Mig crisis and the horrific Jim Jones’ “Peoples Temple” Kool-Aid based/cyanided ‘suicides'(a LIE) in former British Guyana- if one can stomach his testimonies- I listened to this to the bitter end and I think (gut-feeling) Beter was telling the truth- but it was a hard listen-
Angela Merkel ain’t goin’ away that fast either
I tend to think all of these reports are nothing but smoke screens/skirting the issue that complete human cloning has been around for a long time-
I know I’ve blogged about this before (please forgive me for being redundant- yet again)but if one has researched the testimonies of Peter David Beter (just type the name and add dot com- 80 hrs. of archived radio shows) he stated either in the late 70’s/early 80’s that many VIPs after their murders were replaced by “robotoids” (HIS term)-
I know this sounds completely loony(tell me about it)but I came to the conclusion a long time ago the weirder, more bizarre/fantastical a concept initially seems the more truth there probably is behind it because the world out there “ain’t” what we’ve been told it is (I think we all know that already otherwise we wouldn’t be on this website)-
please continue to be well all-
Larry in SW Germany
Hey “Larry in SW Germany”:
Did you hear anything about the passing away of Halton Arp (the dissident astronomer who rejects that redshift = recessional velocity) in recent weeks? I think he lived in Germany (Max Plank Institute).
Some folks say that the way many of the Presidents of recent decades can’t even put together one sentence correctly is because they ARE “clones” or whatever you want to call them. VP Dan Quayle is perhaps the most bizarre, though Bush II also said some very strange things. Some would say there’s a REASON for Obama’s teleprompter. None of this proves anything of course, and yet . . . .
make of the following what you will; at one point during the time of the Vancouver Olympics some anonymous blogger wrote in an article: “Obama’s children are not his biological children; he is steril”-
now normally I would ignore such brazen, non-documented statements like this from a no-name entity but something about this hit my solar plexus like a battering ram-
I immediately shot this off to a former very dear Afro-American co-worker (figuring she wouldn’t think they all look alike as so many “stupid white men” think, if you get my drift) and she wrote back immediately: “this would not surprise me in the least; I’ve never felt his children bear any physical resemblance to him whatsoever”-
obviously that’s just her own personal opinion and maybe others feel differently- I dunno- but she’s always been an exceedingly insightful, sensitive woman so I’ve always had much respect for her viewpoints-
as you stated “None of this proves anything of course, and yet . . . .”
Have saved this #40 for later today.
Heard just a few minutes &
it sounds like it’s going to be a “barn burner!”.
you’ll be amazed- the concept of California Congressman Leo Ryan’s murder on Guyana’s main tarmac (beginning of report) isn’t even the tip of the iceberg
There is no doubt deep politics/ops are being played out in tragic deaths, but I dont’ agree with Beter’s viewpoint on his raison d’etre.
Still, it’s interesting to try and understand another’s line of reasoning; for, in that process, some unexpected insights can come into being.
What you seam to be blogging about Joseph is more like the Star Trek replicators. And remember the Krell creatures from the Id beware of what you wish for you may not like what you get. Science Fiction is not fiction but at it’s best a premonition or warning to beware and think before you jump.
Also remember The Fly both the late fifties and eighties movie versions and the original short story.
the interesting part of the fly is …well for me is….that the fly dna was interjected into man.
might, may, could, be the truth
ever put meat outside? the flys evolve out of meat….literally….like the meat has fly dna encoded into it.
You forgot to mention Google, which is buying up creepy transhumanist companies at an alarming rate and is positioning itself to be the go-to corporation for that total-brain download into a cyborg future: “Siempre viva! Live forever!”
your missing the point, or the point of the mission.
suppose that a species developed in a different environment, and connected with the creator as was intended. ….now suppose that these god men interact within a failed environment, or a environment that had not yet evolved as intended…..and some of those non evolved species that are supposed to have gone extinct, are still in this environment, smashing glass, celebrating menstrual cycles and giving the maker a big middle finger.
now suppose, that they think they are the god men….making fun of and enslaving the children of the god men while destroying the world that was created for these children, for the pleasures of materialism through war and other deceptions that should of made them go extinct…..welcome to Earth and the fallen angels….angel btw means messenger….and fallen could also mean devolving…a unique situation.
Memories from transplant organs isn’t really the same thing as “genetic memory”, transplant induced memories just suggest that memory is held in organs throughout the human body.
Genetic memory is more like past life memory, or one’s genes resonating with say the place, or linguistic background, one’s ancestors come from.
if one does the research the German Aerospace Institute in Stuttgart proved that water has memory- it’s not the organs themselves but the WATER contained in all of our organs (every cell in our bodies contains 70+ percent water) and that makes the difference
