Authoritarian eugenics is very dangerous

Eugenics, Ready or Not

Despite warnings by moral conservatives, advances in genetics and reproductive technology have created the conditions for a consumer-driven mass eugenics industry. Like it or not, science is about to pose a slather of moral, ethical and societal dilemmas

by Frank K. Saltar

A legal, social and biological revolution is taking place worldwide without much serious thinking of the consequences. Consider this: in Britain the House of Commons recently approved the use of “three-parent IVF” to remove defective mitochondrial DNA from babies.[1]

Each year in Britain about 100 children are born with mutated mitochondrial DNA, resulting in about ten cases of fatal disease to the liver, nerves or heart. A new in vitro fertilisation (IVF) technique developed at the University of Newcastle allows doctors to replace a mother’s defective mitochondrial DNA with that of a healthy donor, presumably using pre-implantation sequencing and microscopic operation on the zygote. Mitochondrial DNA does not affect appearance, personality or intelligence, and it reduces kinship—genetic similarity—by only about 1 per cent. Still, the resulting child, though its nuclear DNA would come from its main parents, would have three parents.

Critics warned that this would set society off down a slippery slope to eugenics and “designer babies”. A government official, the “British Fertility Regulator”, replied to this warning with the observation that most people support the therapy. This was intended to assuage the concerns expressed. In fact it would seem to confirm them, since widespread support for a product or service indicates a readiness to adopt it. Sure enough, though there had been little public discussion in advance of the Commons debate, the new techniques were nonetheless approved by a large parliamentary majority. Australian scientists have since called for the British policy to be emulated.[2]

Dante’s Inferno and the hideousness of transhumansim

Chris Rea did a song on his Santo Spirito album that I thought was really good, especially after reading about Dante being influence by Thomas Aquinas and their esoteric writings inferring their knowledge of transhumanism, although it probably wasn’t quite referred to the description of transhumanism back then translated to English from their native language.

Germany benefits the most from CERN

According to Joseph Farrell’s most recent blog post, it is suggested Germany benefits the most from the research coming out of CERN. Joseph Farrell writes:

What’s really being implied here is that Germany, which bears with France the lion’s share of the vast “Euro-projects” from CERN’s collider to the European Space Agency, is recognizing the need to beef up its cyber capabilities, and in particular this will mean the ability to protect its military assets, communications, command, and control against any potential threat, and similarly, will develop offensive cyber capabilities against any threat.

Then, if CERN’s site is read there is a writeup on German industry back in 1998 already working to strengthen the ties between Germany and CERN as this article confirms:

Geneva, 1 December 1998. The 7th German technology fair “Germany at CERN 1998” which is being held in CERN1’s main building from the 1st to 3rd of December, provides the opportunity to extend and deepen the longstanding collaboration between German industry and CERN. This collaboration enables the research community to carry out experiments at an ever higher technical level and industry to gain access to up-to-date know-how and cutting-edge technology. Such joint developments between CERN and industry prepare the ground for further technological innovation.

High tech companies with names like Dante

In this previous post, reference was made to Dante and how Dante was alleged to have been influenced by an obscure writing by Thomas Aquinas about alchemy related to transhumanism.  It was suggested Dante was influenced by Thomas Aquinas who Joesph Farrell interesting observed, that Dante, Aquinas and others from that period of time were writing about esoteric transhumanism even back then. So a search for technology companies using the name “Dante” came up with the following including this company called “Dante.” This company which has changed its name apparently to GÉANT, works closely with CERN. It is interesting how a company names itself after Dante when Dante had apparently knew about alchemy related to transhumanism. Is this what influenced Dante in writing “Divine Comedy?” Did Dante see the comedy in man chasing this technology and how it would end in tragedy like in Dante’s Inferno and Paradiso? Notice in this description of Dante’s Paradiso, he makes reference to Jupiter and the other planets as well as representing the soul’s ascent to God. Will that ascent to God be achieved by technology?

Paradiso (Italian for “Paradise” or “Heaven”) is the third and final part of Dante’s Divine Comedy, following the Inferno and the Purgatorio. It is an allegory telling of Dante’s journey through Heaven, guided by Beatrice, who symbolises theology. In the poem, Paradise is depicted as a series of concentric spheres surrounding the Earth, consisting of the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, the Fixed Stars, the Primum Mobile and finally, the Empyrean. It was written in the early 14th century. Allegorically, the poem represents the soul’s ascent to God.

The company GÉANT is involved in the following. This company will store data for CERN experiments.

DANTE (GEANT) plans, procures, builds and operates large scale, advanced high speed networks for global research and education, including the award-winning 500Gbps pan-European GÉANT network. We manage R&E networking projects serving Europe, the Mediterranean, Sub-Saharan Africa and Central Asia regions, coordinate Europe-China collaboration, and assist the projects underway in Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia-Pacific.

Quantum computing building nano diamonds

Quantum computing being able to be eventually used to build diamonds to store information permanently on diamonds as a team of researchers from TU Wien (Vienna) the National Institute for Informatics (Tokyo) and NTT Basic Research Labs in Japan have discovered. Their system — made up of mirrors, diamond and a nitrogen defect — can store one quantum bit of information: zero, one, or an arbitrary superposition of both bits. But usually such a quantum bit is apparently very unstable. This is what physicists have been trying to figure out: stabilizing these quantum bits. Diamond nanotechnology will be used in future technology if it isn’t already here. A quantum computer with the capacity to build diamonds from the quantum level for storing quantum bits:

Error correction procedures are needed to build a quantum computer that works reliably. “If error correction is used, a quantum bit cannot be stored in one single quantum particle any more. Instead, a complex architecture of interconnected quantum systems is required,” says Michael Trupke (TU Wien).

The esoteric occult beginnings of transhumanism

It seems as though the species is being driven to the edge with technology and transhumanism is a huge part of this technological drive. As the creators of this technology coming through transhumanism, who inevitably will control this technology?

In Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas (Feral House), crypto-historians Joseph P. Farrell and Scott D. de Hart explore links between modern science and ancient texts. They see connections between ultra-modern transgenic techniques to transform the biological world and hidden goals of ancient alchemists, gnomic sacred texts, and possible prehistorical high-tech civilizations. The Rockefellers and genetically modified food also merit mentions.

References (from Wikipedia) to historical figures who included alleged transhumanism topics in their esoteric alchemical-related writings:

 Tommaso d’Aquino, OP (1225 – 7 March 1274), also known as Thomas Aquinas (/əˈkwaɪnəs/), was an Italian Dominican friar and Catholic priest who was an immensely influential philosopher, theologian and jurist in the tradition of scholasticism, within which he is also known as the “Doctor Angelicus” and “Doctor Communis”. He is heralded as the most influential Western medieval legal scholar and theologist. “Aquinas” is from the county of Aquino, an area where his family held land until 1137.

Percy Bysshe Shelley (/ˈpɜrsi ˈbɪʃ ˈʃɛli/; 4 August 1792 – 8 July 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets, and is regarded by some as among the finest lyric, as well as epic, poets in the English language. A radical in his poetry as well as in his political and social views, Shelley did not see fame during his lifetime, but recognition for his poetry grew steadily following his death. Shelley was a key member of a close circle of visionary poets and writers that included Lord Byron; Leigh Hunt; Thomas Love Peacock; and his own second wife, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein.

Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley about the young student of science Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque but sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley’s name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823.

Durante degli Alighieri (Italian: [duˈrante ˈdeʎʎi aliˈɡjɛːri]), simply called Dante (Italian: [ˈdante], UK /ˈdænti/, US /ˈdɑːnteɪ/; c. 1265–1321), was a major Italian poet of the late Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, originally called Comedìa (modern Italian: Commedia) and later called Divina by Boccaccio, is widely considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature.

Athanasius Kircher, S.J. (sometimes erroneously spelled Kirchner; 1602–1680) was a 17th-century German Jesuit scholar and polymath who published around 40 major works, most notably in the fields of comparative religion, geology, and medicine. Kircher has been compared to fellow Jesuit Roger Boscovich and to Leonardo da Vinci for his enormous range of interests, and has been honored with the title “Master of a Hundred Arts”.

Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish author, playwright and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London’s most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. He is remembered for his epigrams, his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, his plays, as well as the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death.

A deal with the devil or pact with the devil is a cultural motif, best exemplified by the legend of Faust and the figure of Mephistopheles, but elemental to many Christian folktales. According to traditional Christian belief in witchcraft, the pact is between a person and Satan or a lesser demon. The person offers his or her soul in exchange for diabolical favours. Those favours vary by the tale, but tend to include youth, knowledge, wealth, fame, or power.
