Well, colour me surprised...

... NOT!

When I first heard that Mr Globalooney was expanding his portfolio of philanthronihilism to include not just buying up farmland to grow GMOs which had been turned into quackcines (to make sure everyone gets quackcinated and stays "healthy", and to ensure that Mr. Globalooney remained stupendously wealthy, of course) but also to promote yet another philanthronihilist project - synthetic meat (which could, incidentally, be 3D printed and sculpted to look like real rib-eye) - I had a nagging question: just exactly how were they going to ensure that it was really meat protein that was really being lab grown?

One thing that popped into my noggin at the time (and probably popped into quite a few other noggins out there contemplating the same thing) was the rhyming answer: "cancer." At the time that this popped into my noggin, I thought, "Nah... that's as repulsive and silly as someone advocating that we eat crickets, meal worms, and other insects." Little did I know that Der Hochklaus von Blohschwab Freiherr von Bomburst would shortly be touting the scrumptulodeliciousness of crickets, so I was not entirely surprised when V.T. spotted and shared this:

Lab-Grown Meat Has a Bigger Problem Than the Lab

So, straight to it: ponder the following:

There is, however, another option on the way for those in search of better guilt-free protein: growing meat from cells in a lab, without raising any living animals for slaughter. Yes, really.
Thank the biotech revolution. Under the right conditions, animal cells can be grown in a petri dish, or even at scale in factories full of stainless-steel drums. For decades, companies such as Pfizer Inc. and Johnson & Johnson have cultured large volumes of cells to produce vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and other biotherapeutics. Now the idea is that we might as well eat these cells, too.
Yes folks, that's right: the very same people that gave you the quackcines and an explosion of adverse reactions and deaths, now want to have you eat their "bioproducts" too!  But wait, there's more:
The big honking asterisk is that normal meat cells don’t just keep dividing forever. To get the cell cultures to grow at rates big enough to power a business, several companies, including the Big Three, are quietly using what are called immortalized cells, something most people have never eaten intentionally. Immortalized cells are a staple of medical research, but they are, technically speaking, precancerous and can be, in some cases, fully cancerous.
Don’t worry: Prominent cancer researchers tell Bloomberg Businessweek that because the cells aren’t human, it’s essentially impossible for people who eat them to get cancer from them, or for the precancerous or cancerous cells to replicate inside people at all.
And just like with GMOs, there is a lack of long-term testing, even some "fishy" claims that - no - these "immortal cells" are not cancer, in what might be called the "synthetic meat corollary" to the "substantial equivalence" argument that GMO corn was "substantially equivalent" to natural corn, except for the patent part, of course! And that's really the game here: a cow cannot be patented, a "meat product" grown from the cow by a variety of genetic engineering processes can be.
Eat Just Inc. declined to comment for this story. Believer Meats Chief Scientific Officer Yaakov Nahmias says that his company uses immortalized cells in its cultured chicken and that his team has somehow, by means he says even they don’t understand, created immortalized cells that don’t share any genetic signatures with cancer cells. (Two cell biologists I shared his comments with expressed skepticism.) Eric Schulze, Upside Foods vice president for global scientific and regulatory affairs, says his company stands by its FDA nod and its safety protocols. “Many of the inputs and processes we use have been used for decades or even centuries in food production,” he said in a statement. “Our product is as safe as the chicken you eat every day.”
Nonetheless, interviews with dozens of current and former employees, executives, investors, analysts and other insiders, as well as reviews of the companies’ regulatory filings and past statements, make clear that the cultured meat industry is anxious about its use of immortalized cells and is doing what it can to avoid the subject. In part, this is because scientists aren’t as quick as journalists to use the words “essentially impossible” in writing. Despite the informal scientific consensus around the safety of immortalized cells, there just aren’t any long-term health studies to prove it.
You’d never be able to grow cultured meat at scale using normal cells without collecting frequent biopsies from a herd of donor animals, which is expensive, messy and not quite cruelty-free.
That’s where immortalized cells come in. They’ve been used in medical research since the early 1950s, when the first and most famous immortal cell line—derived from the cervical cancer cells of a woman named Henrietta Lacks—was successfully grown in a lab. Lacks is widely viewed as a victim of failed medical ethics and systemic racism; her cells, which have gone on to generate billions of dollars in economic value, were taken without her knowledge or permission. They’ve also saved lives. The so-called HeLa line of cells first enabled researchers to continue study without fresh samples from living humans or animals, leading to breakthrough discoveries in oncological and immunological science. Today, AstraZeneca Plc and J&J’s Covid-19 vaccines are grown using immortalized human kidney and retinal cells, respectively. The process is a lot like making cultured meat. Immortal cells are grown in a big steel drum called a bioreactor, ultimately generating thousands of pounds of cell mass.
On and on the article goes from there, with the author apparently in agreement that synthetic meat is a good idea.
I'm intensely and profoundly skeptical that it is.
In fact, I view it as the most subtle attack yet on animals and their place in human life yet, in spite of the article's repeated reference to how synthetic meat avoids animal cruelty by avoiding the slaughterhouse. I grant you, that what follows is high octane speculation, but I nonetheless think that if this trend is allowed to continue, the end result (and in my opinion the hidden goal) behind this movement is total control of the food supply, and a complete detachment of human life, from animal life, be it as food, or as pets. The goal here seems to me to be the technological eradication of humanity's dependence on other life for its own life. If life can be grown in clean stainless steel drums, why bother with planting radishes or carrots or raising a herd of cattle or a brood of chickens for milk, cheese, eggs and meat? Imagine a world being fed almost entirely that way, and you are also imagining a world that will support a dramatically increased - yes, I said increased - human population, and a corresponding decline of animal husbandry. Indeed, there's a subtle premise to the article that that is so subtle it's almost completely hidden, and it occurs precisely in connection to the repeated references to animal cruelty. That premise is that technology can not merely augment but replace nature. From there I submit it's a very short step - a shorter step than advocates of this latest philanthronihilism imagine - from "no animal cruelty needed" to "no animals needed", and from there to "no plants needed either."
In short, I have a "very bad feeling about this," that it will end in a total world of total mechanism and machine, of steel drums full of "meat", of an Earth with no farms of mares birthing wobbly-legged foals, of chickens and ducks laying their eggs and tending their brood, and of children and women and men tending their household - their families and animals - but of an assembly line of managers and lab-coated technocrats and monopolies and cartels.
So yea, on this one you can call me a luddite and a dinosaur... I'll take it as a compliment.
See you on the flip side...

    (sound of fingers drumming on the table) ..I’m still watching and waiting for the hover cars. …

    If anything these fools think is food is as good as the day-glo orange “cheese” the usda passes out “for free”, the animals won’t touch it. For a fact.
    My dog wouldn’t eat white rice. Loved brown rice tho. Smart dog.
    I think the deal is this: We are not going to end this geoengineering kill agenda, so get used to their being no animals. It’s called a “food chain” and parts of it are becoming devoid of “food”. such as insects. And yes, the trees are dying, I’m sure the smaller plants will also. Already tender berry flowers burn dry before producing fruit.
    Asked a FS dude in Mt. Shasta 3 yrs ago if he came from area. No, he said, I came here to fish, but where are the fish? This is on the upper Sacramento we are having converse. I answer by asking him “What do fish eat? ” He was stumped. “Bugs” I said. “Where are the bugs?”

    So, they want you to get used to not having a dog now. Why? Cause once there’s nothing to feed that dog but billy’s bullshit burgers, your dog will either starve to death, or , if he’s not been injected, maybe eat you. It’s a “survival of the most intelligent” thingy. Nothing personal, but your dog knows if you’re willing to eat that crap, you’re not fit. The wolf part of them knows what needs culling. IF we had more wolves, we’d have less politicians.
    That’s my cheery prospect on Pluto moving through Capricorn, which is like Dante walking through Hell. Flip the dial, figure out who your guide will be, and watch the whole card deck fly.
    You know how the atom bomb blast made forever imprints?
    I’ll be repeating this mantra until what date? this is becoming wearying…until we give up this stupid technological EGO, we’re toast. As in that microwave oven which does it all so quickly and efficiently and cleanly. The German way. Germ man. Hmmm….

      Our dog food quality here in the UK post Brexit plummeted. Doubled what I spend on dry food and got my husky on a lot of meat and eggs. Hard to find non gmo chicken feed etc too. Just caught my eye, sorry, white rice bad? Ive been hanging around a few TCM practitioners for a while and they’re very clear about the white/brown divide…the human needs that husk away for full nourishment and qi availability and…aren’t dogs carnivores? And aren’t modern dogs, Pugs, Cockapoos!! good enough to satisfy (and make wary) the interfering biological experimental human mind? And what could be more fun than taking your husky squirrel foraging?
      Pluto (woofwoof) will dissolve into Aquarius (Humanitarian) with ruler, Kronos, sinking into Pisces and permeate every watery corner of our being. The deck will dissolve and cards’ meaning go full mud, to, I pray, later Lotus up in a flurry of over the fence trading, like a magic mushroom cloud in our backyard homestead fortresses. As this is what we all must do…produce even one edible thing to trade. One skill to be mobile. One love for practical community.

    ***What’s Missing Here?*** They won’t get so far as to mass produce and eliminate meat, animals, and vegetables, at least for any length of time without everyone dying, including the perpetrators. Why? Because life requires energy plain and simple!! Cells require energy. Dead food doesn’t have energy. The body does not need protein, it needs amino acids. The purest and most vitalized form of amino acids comes from fruits and vegetables. The body needs amino acids for structure. The kick we get from meat is adrenalin. The fact, however, is that we’ve been raised thinking it is a necessity for good health – it isn’t. Heck, even human milk doesn’t have much protein, it’s mostly carbohydrates – what does that tell you about the human need for protein? The body requires carbon and oxygen as energy – simple sugars is the gasoline of the human cell. Holistic practitioners are seeing more genetic weaknesses than ever before because of routine vaccination, toxicity (air, water, herbicides, pesticides, household cleaners and on and on), and an increasingly ACID environment from the environment and from the accumulation of acids from the metabolic waste of the body. Do a search on it and you’ll find that your urine should be clear — this is absolutely false — yes, it shouldn’t have blood, but your kidneys should be filtering ACIDS & TOXINS out of the body – your urine should have sediment like snow globe. Otherwise, you’re not eliminating the waste from the body and it backs up like a bad septic tank … wonder why everyone is getting sick and why the medical field and pharmaceutical companies can’t heal anything? An acid environment contribute to the overgrowth of bacterial, fungus, and parasites. A wonderful situation for the vaccine companies, especially with a little fear mongering thrown in for good measure. Most people are weak to one degree or another in the 4 basic processes of the body: Digestion, Absorption, Utilization, and Elimination. Most people have an acid pH body. From reading this articles, it is apparent that we are all soooo far away from the basic and simple truth of what constitutes healthy food, and health in general, that it may actually take a massive die off of humanity before our survival instincts kick in and start living with the foods that God provided for us. Why is everyone making health and vitality such a complicated thing. It isn’t! Everyone has just becomes addicted to the food additives, flavorings, high salt, and all the little nasty, addictive ingredients. Humanity has lost it’s perspective and connection to natural, human food. Most health conditions can be turned around relatively quickly, tissue can be regenerated, health and vitality can be restored. We’re picking the wrong bones here!

    • bluelectricstorm on March 2, 2023 at 8:24 pm

      I won’t come right out and say it, I’ll just relate my own experience:
      Once, I bought a piece of Organic Valley cheese. You know how it is with cheese.
      so, I take the first bite…distracted as I do…and boom!! I am overflowing with grief!!!
      I can easily describe the grief, that of a mother separated from her baby. It was very painful. I didn’t eat cheese again for years. And still don’t like myself at all when I do.
      It’s a long slow journey replacing addiction with caring. Addiction is intrinsically selfish. And the addictions of blood, alcohol, machines, all these things that make felt an artificial increase in “power”, the greatest addiction of all.
      so, moving from selfish addiction to compassionate caring takes long. I’ve been vegetarian for 45 years. That’s how hard it can be. Because we are disconnected from the reality.
      Someone told me once I should just have my mama dog “fixed”. I said that was bad jujus to me, I don’t want that done to me, and there’s no way I want to cut my dog’s genitals. They replied so positively cheerily “YOU don’t have to do it. The vet will do it. ”

    This is an abomination, what will block those companies from injecting weapons grade modified DNA in those cells, so that they can experiment on the consumers, exactlly like pfizer did with her mRNA injections?

    it´s obvious that they will use it to kill.

    These meat products sound like something concocted by Yaldabaoth and his spawn. It also reminds me of The Blob (the movie) where in regard to this meat we need to ask who is eating who. (Not that anyone in The Blob ordered up a Blob-burger or plate of Blob for a late night snack.)
    Also, the L-tryptophan litigation years ago (the 1990s) should be a warning. People began suffering a variety of systems, including organ failure – of organs like kidneys, liver, and lungs. They were taking L-tryptophan, occurring naturally in milk and turkey, as a sleep aid, among other things. To increase L-tryptophan production, one company radiated the bacteria it used to produce the stuff, produced in large tanks of bacteria in a nutrient broth. Feed the bacteria and it excretes L-tryptophan. The radiated bacteria not only produced more normal L-tryptophan molecules, it also produced more analogs of L-tryptophan, molecules with very slight alterations. It appeared, as learned during the litigation, that these analogs when consumed frequently triggered auto-immune reactions that caused various symptoms including organ failure and death. Therefore, a yellow flag should go up whenever any company begins making a food product that is an altered/fake version of something our bodies are used to. That yellow flag should tell those food producers to slow down on their race to market until they can prove that their product is as safe as what mother nature has provided for thousands of years.
    And finally, what kind of life inhabits these not-quite-cancer cells? Single-cell organisms abound in nature, and plants like ayahuasca can take you to a state where you encounter your own cells and see that they have a consciousness independent of your consciousness as a human being. Each organ is a city. What kind of consciousness inhabits these drum-cultured meat cells? Whose “life” sounds like it may be akin to a hopeless existence in Dante’s inferno. Is this what we want to ingest, along with all the other lies, toxins, programming, manipulation, and radiation the dollar-piling, self-serving elite use to create a counterfeit world where they rule?

    Their objective is to create a synthetic analogue of every organic thing on the face of the planet, under the phoney guise of climate concern. That way, they can manufacture it anywhere, patent and monetize it. Everything real and organic will become so difficult and costly to produce and purchase that it will become the preserve of the 1%; hence you wont be eating real meat much anymore as “predicted” by WEF in their now infamous “you-will-own-nothing-and-be-happy” video. Whether its tobacco, cannabis, leather, cotton, food and finally humans – they want it patented and monopolized by the vulture class. Its already happened in the drugs arena with synthetic opioids and cannibinoids which are displacing the real thing- much cheaper and easier to produce fentanyl than heroin and its 50 times more potent. An entirely synthetic and counterfeit world. Evil in other words.

    • Kaibosch on March 2, 2023 at 4:50 am

      Plus the synthetic is compatible with the satellite control grid in a way that organic isnt. Like CBDC replacing cash, internet of thngs and bodies and so on. Its scalable so offers full spectrum dominance of every human being on the planet.

    • Laura on March 2, 2023 at 8:51 am

      Like button. Cheaper to monetize the subject of the demand by manufacturing a faux version.
      We need to reject the outsource to China model but accept that some locally produced goods may be more expensive in order to maintain quality.

      Bingo! On one level, this is about transforming the nature of man into something “better” (that old saw of murderous, modern-era utopians), transforming him from organic to as inorganic as possible. On a less deep level, it’s about creating a monopoly over everything people need to survive, from food and water, to energy and transportation, to pharma products they’ve been poisoned into needing, to — one day, if they can manage it — the very air we breathe.

      But don’t worry about not being able to have pets in the future. Some corporation will be happy to sell the government robot dogs that will be provided to lonely, depressed people who, for whatever reason, haven’t already been euthanized.

  6. Laura on March 1, 2023 at 8:10 pm

    I think the idea that synthetic food production is for space travel is secondary and more of a future carrot for corporations to agree to the investment and development with front end loses. I agree with the JPF that “The goal here seems to me to be the technological eradication of humanity’s dependence on other life for its own life.” the next question is why the separation of humans from organic nature and the creation of synthetic biological systems?
    perhaps it would be prudent to separate a voracious omnivore from an environment that it is damaging. the rationale for that course would be the corollary that one can eat the plant and creatures of an ecosystem as long as the pursuit does not irreparably damage the ecosystem. a more morbid answer is that another species seeks human extinction without extinction of the organic bio-systems.

    on the insect front, I saw a video about extracting fat from processed larvae and using the fat as a substitute for butter.
    this was the least revolting concept yet.i wonder how long it takes for larvae spread to go rancid?

    for a palate cleanser from this fascinating theme (kind of like the oryx and crake series – are you out there bcnick?) I like to read about wild cattle. Florida cracker cattle run wild in the swamp and are descended from Andalusian cattle brought by Ponce de Leon.

    “Large ranchos (ranches) were eventually created in Florida by the Spaniards during the 17th century (well before ranchos were developed in Mexico), with their vaqueros becoming the first “Florida cowboys.” However, this would all end during the mid-18th century, when the British and their Creek Indian allies raided the Spanish ranchos, forcing the owners to abandon everything and flee to the coast. This in turn would allow thousands of abandoned cattle and horses to be running free in the Florida landscape. The Creek Indians liked what they saw in Florida and decided to move in and settle there, and they also recognized cattle ranching as an important resource for the tribe. The Creek Indians would also form an alliance with other Indian tribes (including the Calusa tribe) and create what would become known as the Seminole Tribe, which exists to this day. The Seminoles were the first Native Americans to have a “horse culture” and created their own large cattle herds. Even today, the Seminoles still play an important role in Florida’s cattle ranching industry.“Anglo” settlers began showing up in Florida during the late 18th century and were primarily cattlemen from Georgia and the Carolinas, who recognized that rounding up free-roaming cattle in the wild landscape as a great source of income, if you had the grit and wherewithal to do it. This is when the “Cracker” culture would get its start.”
    from https://www.manisteenews.com/sports/article/Tom-Lounsbury-Revisiting-Florida-s-Cracker-16984085.php

    As the cattle eats a wild diet, the meat is lean, tasty, and rich in omega3. maybe there is a demand to ensure an exclusive harvest from wild habitats, like agneau de pré-salé.

    No doubt, they’ll be a saline solution for photo ops.
    But, they employ fakes by-the-score.
    Just how many fake Bidens are there?
    Probably as many, as there are fake republics and democracies.
    Fake meats are just another in the long list engineered for fake humans.
    Under directions of fake leadership.
    All following real algorithm scripts.
    Being read by fake talking heads.
    Well, I don’t see any more words on my teleprompter to write….
    When it rings a bell. I’ll type what “they” write.

    Those ever-faster blurring-lines; between reality and deep fakes, are getting harder and harder to distinguish, by design. Are they human; are are the pods?

    Take free will out of the equation and what do you end up with, a creature without compassion and integrity, like our overt and covert overlords / politicians. They sell ideology in every form imaginable thru food and drugs, believe systems and whatever else. Those creatures always push the dualism fallacy, if you are not with us your against us. In reality those creatures are cut of from the life source and completely alone. Yes, they seem to cooperate with one another for a while until their utter selfishnes destroys that, and they fall upon one another like wolves.
    I believe one of their biggest fears is, not to be one of them, so they try and make everybody in their pathetic image in every way imaginable, thus frankenstein food to add to the long list of poisons to destroy mankind and make them a creature.

    I think the big push by Mr Globalooney is to make humans an off planet species (Mars etc). Hence the push for cultured meat and GMO crops and insects.
    I have read about salamanders which have the ability to easily regrow broken, missing or damaged limbs, organs and hearts, as they have unique regenerative cells. A perfect solution for the factory farming of meat, organs and limbs for human use and prolonged life / long interstellar journeys!

    The extremely strange thing about salamaders is that there is a strong connection to the UFO crash and two beings that were caught in Varginha, Brazil in January 1996. See the excellent documentary film – Moment of Contact.
    What is particularly stunning, is that the two beings in Varginha gave off a very strong smell of ammonia. It is a fact that amphibians excrete ammonia and not urea like us, because they can live in water as well as on land and the water allows the high concentration ammonia to be dissolved quickly – without toxic poisoning of the creatures. Obviously the two beings were dehydrating in the tropical heat and had no access to water and were an amphibian class of specie – highly evolved bipods!

      I concur Michael. All these unnatural food products have one underlying feel to it. Production lines for interstellar voyages.
