    I'll be Honest ^ | August 8, 2019 | Tim Conway
    There are two very important questions we all should be asking: 1. Why are things the way they are in this world? 2. How do we fix it? The world is wearing themselves out trying to figure out the second question, but they don't care too much to ask themselves the first question. But we'll never know the answer to the second question until we can find the answer to the first question.
  • Transhumanism: What Does Epstein Believe In?

    Transhumanism is the new buzz-word surrounding the Jeffrey Epstein scandal. The sex-trafficking case exposed his fascination with altering the human race. Transhumanism is the belief that humans can be modified through selective breeding and technological advancements. The main goal is to advance humans through things like AI, nanomedicine and other medical technologies that can control the body. Critics of Transhumanism relate the philosophy to eugenics. Jeffrey Epstein admittedly wanted to weave his DNA into humanity by simultaneously impregnating twenty women at his New Mexico ranch. He also donated money to multiple people and organizations that support Transhumanism.
  • Who Are the Rich, White Men Institutionalizing Transgender Ideology?

    The Federalist ^ | 2/20/2018 | Jennifer Bilek
    Exceedingly rich, white men (and women) who invest in biomedical companies are funding myriad transgender organizations whose agenda will make them gobs of money. As an environmental activist who was deplatformed from a speaking venue by transactivists, in 2013 I developed curiosity about the power of this group to force this development. A year later, when Time magazine announced a transgender tipping point on its cover, I had already begun to examine the money behind the transgender project. I have watched as all-women’s safe spaces, universities, and sports opened their doors to any man who chose to identify as a...
  • Humans to download their SOULS onto microchips so they can ‘live FOREVER’

    PEOPLE will be able to download their “souls” onto microchips, implant it into another body and live forever, a technology expert has claimed. Richard Skellett, a founder of Digital Anthropologist and an expert for Future of Work, has warned of a future in which British workers have chips inserted underneath their skin. The process has already been trialled with company BioTeq fitting 150 implants in the UK. And Sweden-based firm Biohax told the Sunday Telegraph that it is in discussions with several British companies about microchipping. But as humans and machines become more in-sync, it could open up all sorts...

    Telegraph ^ | 31 Oct 18 | Natasha Bernal
    Brain implants used to treat Parkinson's disease could be hacked by cyber attackers and used to control people, scientists have claimed. A report by the Oxford Functional Neurosurgery Group and cyber security company Kaspersky claims that people's memories could be exploited by hackers and has called on cyber security companies, manufacturers and healthcare companies to develop new technology to stop them. Academics have previously warned that brain implants could prevent patients from "speaking or moving, cause irreversible damage to their brain, or even worse, be life-threatening". They claimed that hackers could overload or disable the system, and could damage...

  • Creepy “World Government Summit” Targets America, Freedom

    Top globalists, communists, and Islamists from around the globe gathered this month on the Arabian Peninsula for the World Government Summit — yes, that is the confab’s real name — to push for what they called a “new world order.” More than a few speakers made clear that liberty, self-government, and the “America First” agenda were in the crosshairs. On the other hand, Big Government, trans-humanism, and globalism were presented as the solution to basically everything, from alleged man-made “global warming” and health problems to unemployment and even hate. Aside from global governance and statism, one of the key themes...

    Upgrading our biology may sound like science fiction, but attempts to improve humanity actually date back thousands of years. Every day, we enhance ourselves through seemingly mundane activities such as exercising, meditating, or consuming performance-enhancing drugs, such as caffeine or adderall. However, the tools with which we upgrade our biology are improving at an accelerating rate and becoming increasingly invasive. In recent decades, we have developed a wide array of powerful methods, such as genetic engineering and brain-machine interfaces, that are redefining our humanity. In the short run, such enhancement technologies have medical applications and may be used to treat...

    Recently we reported that the Google founders chose their CEO by taking him to burning man, a ritualistic new age event of desolation. Burning Man released their plans for 2018, appropriately theming the Black Rock based event “I, Robot.” Here’s what they say about the event, originally posted on burningman.org: “This year’s art theme will focus on the many forms of artificial intelligence that permeate our lives; from the humble algorithm and its subroutines that sift us, sort us and surveil us, to automated forms of labor that supplant us. Are we entering a Golden Age that frees us all...

    Companies today are strategizing about future investments and technologies such as artificial intelligence, the internet of things, or growth around new business models. While many of these trends will make for solid investments for the next 5-10 years, fewer companies are considering the revolutionary convergence of disparate trends pulled from technology, behavioral and societal changes, and medical advances to understand how they will converge to transform society. This transformation will be messy, complex, and sometimes scary, but signals already point to a future of humanity that will blur our identities into “transhumanism.” A few of the trends that emerged from...

    Artificial human life could soon be grown from scratch in the lab, after scientists successfully created a mammal embryo using only stem cells. Cambridge University mixed two kinds of mouse stem cells and placed them on a 3D scaffold. After four days of growth in a tank of chemicals designed to mimic conditions inside the womb, the cells formed the structure of a living mouse embryo. The breakthrough has been described as a ‘masterpiece’ in bioengineering, which could eventually allow scientists to grow artificial human embryos in the lab without the need for a sperm or an egg.

    Would you vote for a presidential candidate whose campaign promises eternal life? If yes, then vote for Zoltan Istvan, a third-party transhumanist presidential candidate, who believes the technology necessary to make humans immortal could be a reality in two to three decades. Istvan is an ambitious man. He doesn’t just want to beat Trump in the polls by a landslide; he wants to beat death. “I’m hoping I will live indefinitely, that’s a major priority,” Istvan told the Daily Mail. “Even if don’t, I would freeze myself or use some other type of mechanism.”

    In a historic vote, Britain voted to leave the EU. That single effort by the English people has set off a tidal wave of events that has sent ripples through world markets and spurred similar efforts in many nation states throughout the European Union. The British, in essence, have decided to "Exit Stage Left." In the meantime, scientists have announced that they are now able to "improve" on the DNA sequence through replacement of defective strands of the very essence of life itself. Is this the new Tower of Babel? John thinks so, and once you understand the implications of...
