In our book Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas, my co-author Dr. Scott D. de Hart and I argued that Percy Shelley's Frankenstein could be seen as the first real modern expose of transhumanist themes, as the novel explored the relationship of technology and humanity itself. As Dr. De Hart has also pointed out in his own work Shelley Unbound, the choice of the setting of Ingolstadt as the place for the notorious Dr. Frankenstein's experiment in creating life was no accident, as Ingolstadt was home to the historical Bavarian Illuminati, who also intended a kind of alchemical transmutation of man by sociological means.

For us, this was the key component to the modern transhumanist phenomenon: alchemy, since alchemy intended not only the transformation of base metals into gold, but also the transformation of mankind, and especially its consciousness, itself. As we also outlined in that book, the four crucial technologies of transhumanism, the so-called GRIN technologies (genetics, robotics, information-processing, and nano-technology) are instrumental in the transhumanist agenda to alter and "perfect" human nature itself.

Now, with this background in mind, consider the following story:

Australia Is Getting The World's First Masters Degree In Biofabrication, The 3D Printing Of Body Parts

As with the emergence of any new technology, the application of 3D printing to medical prosthetics, and even eventually organ transplantation or even cloning, will require the creation of the appropriate academic programs to train people in its applications and design.

But looking beyond this, however, we can see something else looming on the horizon, and that is the creation of actual "transhumanist" studies degrees within the faculties of social sciences in universities (if indeed it is not already underway). After all, universities are primarily alchemical institutions in a sense; they seek to mold and transform human consciousness on an individual, case-by-case basis, and what better way for the transhumanist movement to advance the cultural effects of its alchemical agenda than by its wealthy individuals and corporations to endow chairs of study (which, after paying lip service to "academic freedom" will, like all such academic creations, carefully guide people into a certain general direction). Watch for this one folks, because it's coming.

See you on the flip side.

Joseph P. Farrell

Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and "strange stuff". His book The Giza DeathStar, for which the Giza Community is named, was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into "alternative history and science".

    Many of the stories about what sort of change would come about at the changing of the Maya cycles was that a new form a human would emerge after that date and it would be a completely different world after a while as a result.

    I always assumed that meant that, say, a large number of more evolved spirits incarnating in waves, raising the general level of consciousness to the point where all realize our inherent “connection” and then everything would sort itself out.

    Now I am having my own version of “The Scream” (referencing JPF’s Facebook post of earlier today here) when I contemplate a transhumanist future that is already upon us and seemingly unstoppable. I hate to say it, but I am often grateful that I never had children…

    Why do I have this gnawing feeling that a long time from now, alchemical ‘metal man’ will hunt down natural man to consume his life force to stave off his own extinction.

    Blood transfusions from children, injecting stem cells, organ transplants, 3d printing organs, transplanting pineal glands…I guess we’re already down that path.

    If you’ve read “Transhumanism” you know fully well that this is a “taboo” subject. The scenario outlined in the book is spooky to say the least, and once again we have people who want to “f**k around” with mother nature. If there is to be a university course on this subject, then Joseph’ and Dr. de Hart’ book has to be read before commencing the course. When you think about it, what books “would” be read in the course? Frankenstein?

    I would imagine that the kids of today attending university should have a serious think about what they want to do in life, and I don’t think this subject is at the top of the pile.

    I agree with your analyses that universities are already primarily alchemical institutions in a sense.
    Now they are tightening the noose on that “free-thinking soul”, by not only infecting the mind, but mutating the body to boot. How far can the soul be behind in their manufacturing schemes?

    Schemes to control & own.

    The word used today is privatize. Or, as the Russians translate it: GRABITIZE.

    What are the oligarchs up to do their lust for power know no limits. It looks like all they think about is control so they what to reduce universities further to factories turning out cookie cuter mechanics to produce their boot licking sycophants to serve them hand and foot. He controls what is known controls what will be thought and dreamt mind control uber allas.

    You will probably all agree to second my nomination of Drs. Farrell and De Hart jointly to the Chair for Transhumanist Studies – at Ingolstadt University of course…
