The Ultimate Transhumanism Manifesto

Believe it or not, a very large percentage of the ruling elite imagine an ideal society that will one day resemble a human beehive.  What does that mean?  Basically a scientifically designed slave race that will never rebel. Not coincidentally, the transhumanists coined a popular term, "hive mind", which refers to the giant collective intelligence which will be created when people the world over link their brains together with technology.

"Biometry, for example; Their one aim is to create the new man, the man adapted to technical functions. The creation of the ideal man will soon be a simple technical operation." -- Jaques Ellul, The Technological Society, 1954
Sir Charles Galton Darwin, former president of the British Eugenics Society and author of The Next Million Years, describes five great revolutions throughout human history, the fifth of which had not yet happened. The fifth revolution involved using science to alter human nature itself, possibly creating a race of supermen (post human). He goes on to say that eugenics operations will become a necessity in order to control population growth. He applauds China for its long history of civil services and holds it up as the model civilization for a world that will ultimately be unified through technology. Humans should resemble workers on an ant hill.
"There might be a drug which without other harmful side effects removed the urgency of sexual desire, and so reproduced in humanity, the status of workers in a beehive." -- Sir Charles Galton Darwin
Below, the documentary The Age of Transitions - a phrase coined by Newt Gingrich in 2001 - is about converging technology, transhumanism, artificial intelligence, life extension, brain implants, social science, propaganda, nanotechnology, eugenics, geopolitics, world revolution, much more.

"Those countries that ignore these patterns of change will fall further behind and find themselves weaker, poorer, and more vulnerable than their wiser, more change-oriented neighbors." -- Newt Gingrich

While most of us were reinforcing our own, and other's patriotism, on December 3, 2001,  the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Commerce (DOC) organized a workshop on December 3-4, 2001. (A pre-publication online version of the report incorporating the views expressed at the workshop by leading experts from government, academia, and the private sector)

The title of the report: "Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance - Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology and Cognitive Science".
The integration and synergy of the four technologies (nano-bio-info-cogno) originate from the nanoscale, where the building blocks of matter are established. This picture symbolizes the confluence of technologies that now offers the promise of improving human lives in many ways, and the realignment of traditional disciplinary boundaries that will be needed to realize this potential. New and more direct pathways towards human goals are envisioned in working habits, in economic activity, and in the humanities.

In the early decades of the twenty-first century, concentrated efforts can unify science based on unity in nature, thereby advancing the combination of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, and new humane technologies based in cognitive science. With proper attention to ethical issues and societal needs, converging technologies could determine a tremendous improvement in human abilities, societal outcomes, the nations productivity, and the quality of life. This is a broad, cross-cutting, emerging and timely opportunity of interest to individuals, society and humanity in the long term.

The phrase convergent technologies refers to the synergistic combination of four major NBIC (Nano-Bio-Info-Cogno) provinces of science and technology, each of which is currently progressing at a rapid rate: (a) nanoscience and nanotechnology; (b) biotechnology and biomedicine, including genetic engineering; (c) information technology, including advanced computing and communications; (d) cognitive science, including cognitive neuroscience.
Some of the participants:

White House, Department of Defense, DARPA, National Science Foundation, Department of Commerce, Newt Gingrich, NASA, National Institutes of Health, Hewlet Packard, IBM, Raytheon, Lucent, Stanford University, Sandia National Labs, MIT, Tissue Informatics, University of Pennsylvania, NYU Medical School, University of Calgary, Duke, University of Texas, UCSB, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Carnegie Melon University, University of Virginia, University of Maryland, Institute of Nanotechnology, The EPA…

The idea behind this workshop was to set an agenda for the future; the key goal, "enhancing human performance" (merging human biology with technology) that would lead to "a more efficient societal structure". In other words, making plans to alter human nature itself.

From this elitist gathering, Memetics, was born. Founded on the principles of universal Darwinism, memetics is the study of memes, which is any idea which passes from one person to others eventually becoming a norm throughout society. Memetics would allow a deeper understanding of the collective cognitive processes throughout societies. Applications are oriented toward social Darwinism.

The 2001 report also provides solutions for the war on terror.

Socio-tech can help us win the war on terrorism. It can help us understand the motivations of the terrorists, and so eliminate them. - 2001 report
Since 9/11 a mountain of legislation has been passed including The Patriot Act, The Military Commissions Act, The John Warner Defense Act, and countless others, all which have rendered the term, terrorist, so ambiguous that anyone could be designed a terrorist.

At this point, you could be taken to a prison without charges, without habeus corpus, and with no rights whatsoever. These laws were not written on a whim. They were specifically designed to give the government carte blanch authority over the people during the chaos and confusion of the Age of Transitions.

The Huxley Brothers:

Julian Huxley, grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley (president of the Royal Society and one of the biggest advocates of Darwinism) came up with the term, transhumanism to replace the term, eugenics, after WWII for obvious reasons. Eugenics means good genes and encouraging the best and brightest to breed. Of course, it's the elite who are considered the best and the brightest. Per Francis Galton, it was because, in the struggle for life, they made it to the top of society, hence, the best humanity had to offer.
"The lowest strata are reproducing too fast. Therefore... they must not have too easy access to relief or hospital treatment lest the removal of the last check on natural selection should make it too easy for children to be produced or to survive; long unemployment should be a ground for sterilisation." -- Julian Huxley

On March 20, 1962, Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, gave a lecture at UC Berkeley, in which he clearly laid out the vision of this planned future society. He said,
"In the ultimate revolution, where man can act directly on the mind body of his fellows. The nature of the ultimate revolution is precisely this: we're now in the process of developing a whole series of techniques, which will enable the controlling oligarchy, who have always existed and and probably always will, to get people to actually love their servitude. First of all, to standardize the population; to iron out an inconvenient human difference, create mass produced models of human beings arranged in some kind of scientific caste system..."

Thanks for posting this. It gives me hope.

Hope for who, @16:50? Unless you are part of the ruling class, the only thing you will get out of this is a job cleaning up after these super-humans.

Although, they claim it's for everyone, it's clearly not.
