THE TRANSHUMANISM SCRAPBOOK: HUMAN CRUISE CONTROL BEING TESTED AT MIT

I was stunned when I read this article shared by Mr. M.N., and I think you will be too, for in a certain sense, it indicates how goofy the transhumanist war on humanity has become, and how nonsensical the "selling points" are becoming in order to promote technologies that, in my opinion, are meant to be nothing but enslaving:

Researchers Use Electrodes for “Human Cruise Control”

Consider these paragraphs:

"The researchers placed electrodes on participants’ sartorius muscles, which run diagonally across the thighs. These connected to a commercially available electrical muscle stimulation device and a Bluetooth-equipped control board that were worn at the waist.

"First, researchers blindfolded participants and used the system to navigate them indoors to learn about controlling walking with electrical muscle stimulation. A couple of participants didn’t feel anything when their muscles were actuated by researchers, but researchers were able to control 11 participants well enough to steer them.

"After that, the experiment went outside. The researchers made four participants turn along park trails and across lawns by using a smartphone app to send electrical current to the subjects’ right or left legs. A video from the researchers shows what this kind of electric zap looks like: a subtle twitching that turns the leg outward, only strong enough to affect you if you’re walking (if you’re standing still, it wouldn’t be enough of a jolt to turn your leg, researchers say). The feeling, Pfeiffer says, is like a tingle that lessens over time."

And here's the "selling point":

"Max Pfeiffer, a coauthor of the paper and graduate student at the University of Hannover, says the idea is to eliminate the distraction of having to constantly pay attention to your phone while finding your way. If the researchers can figure out how to make the technology reliable enough and get people comfortable using it, it could also be helpful for exercise workouts or guiding emergency responders in situations where they can’t see well." (Emphasis added)

How thoughtful of these benevolent scientists, to aid me with electronic jolts during my (ahem) frequent exercise workouts or my incompetence at finding my way in situations where I cannot see.One can imagine the warning label on such devices: "Please turn off your device and remove it before bathing or sex." The complete goofiness of scientists and technicians sometimes amazes me, for if the desire is to help emergency responders in "situations where they cannot see well," why not design a technology of vision enhancement that is cheap and inexpensive, and that doesn't have to be grafted into or riveted onto the human body? In short, the "benefits" being argued here are almost as insane as the technology itself, and they suggest other agendas are at work, for when I read this I thought of all those movies, and even one or two actual scientific experiments, where punishment consists of wearing electrodes which inflict pain for "disobedience" or "non-compliance" to some arbitrary technocratic elitist's whims, or, in the case of experiments, people were asked to shock other people to see how far they would inflict pain on other humans in response to the commands of "authority." The results were frightening.

The real agenda, I strongly suspect, is to sell a technology that will further erode an individual's personality, sense of self worth, and ultimately, his or her humanity with computerized implants capable of delivering a good, painful "jolt" when one is not being a good and compliant robot, and for that matter, when their shelf life expires, the final pulse. Think of it as your very own, personalized portable electric chair.

Make no mistake about it folks: this sort of claptrap isn't about enhancing humanity, raising it up, or enlightening it (pardon the pun). It's about ending it.

See you on the flip side...

  1. I’m sure you’re right that there’s another tie-in for this tech. I was wracking my brain and I came up with robocops. Maybe they are designing robots with simulated human muscles so that they walk like human beings (better for robocops), and then using the kind of technology they are testing, they can be operated remotely rather than having to program them to make their own decisions.

  2. Human cruise control…mastering the human domain. Baltimore incident. hmmm.. nope. no pattern or hidden meanings here.

  3. I sometimes wonder if the obsessive need for control at all levels by technocrats like this is simply a consequence of the obviously increasing lack of control or derangement of their own mental processes. It’s difficult to know whether to laugh or weep in such cases.

  4. Wasn’t there a X-Files episode about subliminal suggestion control to tell when to kill somebody. Then there was the novels The Ring to punish and control convicted felons and Logans Run to terminate you when you reached a certain age. The front of the cover of their latest issue of their magazine is frightening enough. The Tissue Culture King by Julian Huxley, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Donavan’s Brain They Live which I stream on Youtube the list can go on. The ultimate slave is the one who must enslave everyone else.

    1. Yes Dana,
      That would fall under “cross-purposes” regarding “their” policies directives. “Zero-Point Energy” would free humanity;
      directly opposed to their overall policy of enslaving mankind.

  5. Pretty soon waking-up w/that hot cup of java w/cow is going to become a modern version of a fight check by the pilot before take-off.
    You’ll basically be logging in-and-out to access or off various programs. Perhaps verbally or mentally w/manual overrides.

    Now let’s see..
    ummm…?
    Which “little-me” do I want to turn-off or on? How many “you’s” are there due to how many programs your running.
    Not to mention how many prehensile tails you’ve got? of eyes in the back of your head?

  6. I’m seriously afraid that the majority or our population has completely lost it…by the way anyone else get and notice the Northtrup Gruman add on the side of the article? It’s like they are taunting those of us in the know. It drives me insane, I can see the parasites sitting there laughing now.

  7. “They walked in line..”

    German studies of course.

    I figure that the tech, which already exists, that can suggest to 30 percent of a target population that X policy is a good idea (invade Iraq, US taxes are high, the wealthy are good job creators, kill you Hutu neighbor, Ebola is coming for you, etc and worse) is much more powerful than a fancy TENS unit.
