Rogue Gene-Editing Scientist Claims New Pregnancy; Government Probe Launched As Hospital Disavows

from ZeroHedge:

The world’s first genetically edited babies have been born in China this month, according to Chinese researcher He Jiankui – who says he conducted the research along with US scientist Michael Deem, his advisor at Rice University, who has a “small stake” in He’s two Chinese genetics companies.

He has claimed in an AP exclusive report that twin girls born this month had their DNA altered with a powerful new tool which may pave the way for a future free of inherited diseases and undesirable traits, and may even extend one’s lifespan and reverse aging.

NBC News Thinks Getting Microchipped Sounds Super-Convenient

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

We’ve written numerous times before about the upcoming push for personal microchips on this website. Thousands of people in Sweden are voluntarily getting “chipped.” Daisy Luther wrote that many Americans wouldn’t be far behind.” And experts have claimed that one day in the not-too-distant future that “everyone” will be microchipped.

And it looks like the push is on. A while back, Brandon Turbeville wrote about the UK’s pro-microchipping coverage. And now, NBC News published a pro-microchipping video, gushing over the “convenience” of having your keys, your money, and your ID all placed in your hand in a device about the size of a grain of rice.

Real-life dystopia? Microsoft’s patent to reanimate dead as ‘chatbots’ has Black Mirror fans worried

from RT:

Microsoft has been granted a patent to “revive” the dead as chatbots, recreating their personality from social postings, writings, and videos to keep their grieving loved ones company. Assuming it doesn’t totally freak them out.

The living-dead chatbot would be fed all available traces of the deceased – their “images, voice data, social media posts, electronic messages,” and other data – in an effort to mimic their personality as closely as possible. Videos would also be used to generate a 2D or 3D model of the person, further adding verisimilitude by incorporating not just their surface appearance but also their behavioral mannerisms.

WELL, NOW IT’S OFFICIAL: MOOD ALTERING BRAIN CHIP TESTING BEGUN

0

by Joseph P Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Over the years I’ve been blogging about the coming mind-machine interface that so many “transhumanists” are enamored of, and even wrote a rather extensive book with friend and colleague Dr. Scott DeHart about it, Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas, where we elaborated on it further.  The idea of humanly engineered intelligent life is as old as the Jewish esoteric doctrines of the golem, or hermetic myths of talking statues, or Percy Shelley’s Frankenstein (and yes, I said PercyShelley’s Frankenstein, not Mary… see my friend Scott DeHart’s Shelley Unbound for a review of the case that Mary didn’t write the novel). The connecting thread, of course, throughout all these myths, is that humanity is “just a machine” of assembled, and replaceable “body parts”.  Of course, this is not a philosophical view to which I subscribe, but it does highlight the basis behind the idea of combining humans and machines, via various “implants” to the brain, to be able to “access the net” directly and without an ipad, or to control moods, and so on.

Well, now it is official, according to this article found by Mr. L.B.: the U.S. military has begun testing mood-altering chips in humans:

AI brain implants that can change a person’s mood are tested on HUMANS by the US military

What could possibly go wrong? (cough hack wheeze).

Of course, we can all predict what will happen now: we will be treated to the “this is good for us because it will help treat such and such…”  Oh, wait, they’ve already trotted out the “therapeutic value” line:

The US military has begun testing AI brain implants that can change a person’s mood on humans.

These ‘mind control’ chips emit electronic pulses that alter brain chemistry in a process called ‘deep brain stimulation.’

If they prove successful, the devices could be used to treat a number of mental health conditions and to ensure a better response to therapy.

As one can imagine, my high octane speculation is running in overdrive in response to this article. For one thing, it’s one more confirmation that mind manipulation technology is real. It is not science fiction. And with that admission comes all sorts of high octane speculation. For one thing, there’s the “Sirhan Sirhan” scenario. Anyone who has investigated the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy in any depth will have come up against the very strange and odd behavior of the convicted assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, and run into the fact that psychiatrists were able to hypnotize him very easily, and get him to do all sorts of stuff. There is also a body of evidence to suggest that we was a classic “Manchurian Candidate” who was programmed by the late hypno-therapist and “brain control” expert, Dr. William Bryan, who even boasted on one occasion that he was the one who “programmed” him.  One psychiatrist opined that Sirhan Sirhan would have been programmable in a few months’ time, given his susceptibility to hypnosis, and to post-hypnotic suggestion to forget the deed afterwards.

Now, however, just take a brain implant, and the months’ of “programming” might no longer be necessary, it can be accomplished with a mood-altering chip. Need soldiers to kill like the Waffen SS without a shred of moral compunction? Take the chip. Need them to forget about the deed afterward? Take the chip.

But none of this, however, constitutes today’s “high octane speculation.” Such possibilities were probably apparent to the readers of this blog before I even mentioned them, and I’ll wager many readers entertained such scenarios as they were reading the article.

What is today’s high octane speculation concerns the (inadvertent?) admission in the article:

These ‘mind control’ chips emit electronic pulses that alter brain chemistry in a process called ‘deep brain stimulation.’

Researchers Connect A Human Mind To The Internet For The First Time Ever

0

by Jake Anderson, Activist Post:

Have you ever thought about whether future humans will live out aspects of their lives online in simulated environments, or even extend their natural lifespans by uploading their minds to a secure cloud ecosystem? It’s been a familiar idea in science fiction for decades. With news that Elon Musk was attempting to build a “neural lace,” the concept of a brain-machine interface (BMI) entered the public lexicon. Now, researchers at Wits University in Johannesburg, South Africa, claim to have linked a human mind to the Internet in real time — a biomedical first.

The project, dubbed the “Brainternet,” required the researchers to gather EEG brainwave signals using only an Emotiv EEG device and a simple Raspberry Pi computer. The experiment allowed the human brain to become an information node in the Internet of Things (IoT).

The experiment’s supervisor, Adam Pantanowitz, described it this way:

Brainternet is a new frontier in brain-computer interface systems. There is a lack of easily understood data about how a human brain works and processes information. Brainternet seeks to simplify a person’s understanding of their own brain and the brains of others. It does this through continuous monitoring of brain activity as well as enabling some interactivity.

Researchers say the project could provide valuable information for future deep learning algorithms and could even assist Musk’s endeavors in creating true BMI. Many futurists believe that as the impact and everyday importance of the Internet grows, it is inevitable that humans will merge the physical world with online virtual environments, ushering in a generation of enhanced augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and a synthesis of the two that some call Mixed Reality.

While the concept of “living” on the Internet may seem remote, we are in many ways already cyborgs dependent on the Web and artificial intelligence. Linking our brains to an online “hive mind” may ultimately prove to be the most efficient way humans can both receive and transmit information, though concerns over surveillance and privacy will likely follow us all the way through the century.

Welcome to the Era of Artificial Intelligence and Technological Deceit

by Daisy Luther, Activist Post:

The era of artificial intelligence and technological deceit is upon us. If you think “fake news” and propaganda is bad right now, just wait.

And you won’t have to wait very long, at that.

Pretty soon, computer wizardry and artificial intelligence will allow video footage to be created that is practically indiscernible from the real deal. Add to this holograph technology, and soon a person could appear to be speaking, live, in front of you, and you’d never even know it was all fake. The ethical ramifications of AI and technology are simply mind-boggling. In fact, some folks even believe it will signal the beginning of the end of humanity.

But apocalyptic AI aside, let’s look at the manipulative potential of our current tech. We are very close to real life meeting science fiction; and if you think we are being deceived now, once these technologies are rolled out, you won’t be able to believe your eyes or your ears.

There are several unsettling parts to this story.

Smart Phones, Smart Appliances…Smart People? Brain Chip Will Create Super-Intelligent Humans

by Dagny Taggart, The Organic Prepper:

What if you could have a chip installed in your brain that would increase your intelligence? Would you be interested?

While this kind of brain-computer interface technology might sound like something out of a dystopian science fiction novel, scientists are working hard to develop it, and it will likely be available in the near future.

This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “smart person.”

Gene therapy and the trans-human agenda

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

“Researchers say they’re well on the way to curing thousands of diseases by tinkering with human genes. But is that true? Or is their effort really part of a long-range agenda to keep experimenting in the dark, through grotesque trial and error, to alter humans and make them into a new species?” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

With the onrush of new gene-editing techniques, the medical research establishment is beating an old drum: they will cure many human diseases by making genetic changes.

First of all, the new editing techniques have unknown consequences. A simple snip of a gene can bring on ripples in the patient’s overall genetic structure. This fact spells danger.

‘Google Brain’ Implants Will Allow Access To All Information Instantaneously

by Alanna Ketler, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:AI technology is advancing at an extremely rapid rate. It will surpass human intelligence.
  • Reflect On:Should we be wary of this technology and what it could potentially mean to the human species as we know it? Should we have a say in laws regarding the responsible use of AI?

As the lines between the use of technology and doing anything manually become increasingly blurred, the general public and policy makers don’t have time to consider the potential implications of too much technology, or more alarmingly, the merging of humans with AI. It’s like all of those great sci-fi movies are coming to life, right before our eyes. Some, especially those who are developing AI, are more optimistic, like Nikolas Kairinos, founder and CEO of Fountech.aiwho believes that this technology could improve our lives and completely change how we learn.
