Transhumanism Debunked - Just Another Dangerous Death Cult

In this article, I'm going to reveal how transhumanism is a dangerous, irrational death cult shrouded in the language of geeky cybernetics. In fact, the entire idea that you can "upload your mind to a computer" is complete junk science quackery, as you'll soon see.

In case you're new to the term, "transhumanism" means uploading your mind to a machine, discarding your body, then achieving immortality by living forever through machines and robots.

Google's director of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, has been pushing this cult for many years, and just recently he promised that by 2045, humanity would achieve what he calls the "singularity," where our minds can be uploaded to computers. In less than a century, Kurzweil says, we could all discard our "fragile" human bodies and inhabit advanced robotic systems as our new immortal selves.

Kurzweil's cult is so bizarre and dangerous that following it can only lead to a lunatrocity of mass death and deception. Kurzweil's sci-fi cybernetic mind-meld theories are so outlandish that they make Scientology's galactic narratives sound like Christian Sunday school.

3 Ways to Time Travel (In Your Mind)

In the Western world we're taught to perceive time based on the clock ticking forward linearly.

However, spiritual wisdom challenges this notion through the possibility of parallel universes and time travel. And while we may not be able to magically click our heels and end up in a different time and place, we can allow our minds the joy of time travel by visualizing and creating the type of existence we seek to have.

Was Uri Geller a Psychic Spy?

We may know him for spoon bending antics and for his lengthy friendship with pop star Michael Jackson but showbiz psychic Uri Geller has seemingly had a lengthy second career as a secret agent for Mossad and the CIA, albeit one that was more Austin Powers than James Bond.

Geller was at the Sheffield Doc Fest this week for the premiere of Vikram Jayanti's The Secret Life Of Uri Geller – Psychic Spy?, a new film that offers compelling evidence of his involvement in the shadowy world of espionage.

An Optimist's Tour of the Future

Review by Cory Doctorow / Source: Boing Boing

Optimist's Tour of the FutureMark Stevenson's An Optimist's Tour of the Future is a hilarious and inspiring romp through some of the most promising directions in technology -- from permaculture success stories in Australia who are beating the drought and sequestering carbon to nanotechnology boosters who are showing off successful prototypes for effective energy generation, water filtration and desalination, and other cool and world-changing applications.

Stevenson, a former standup comedian, writes with enormous warmth and humor, and he fast-talks his way into the presence of some hard-to-reach scientists and theorists who really represent the cutting edge of their fields, from Eric Drexler to Nick Bostrom. Stevenson does an admirable job of presenting these findings in a lay-friendly way without eliding too much important detail.

Are Humans Getting Smarter or Dumber?

Is humanity getting smarter or dumber with time? The answer may be both.

While IQ scores are rising at a remarkable rate, humans' underlying genetic potential for smarts could be on the decline, a new study suggests. The research found that by one measure of intelligence, the Victorians had modern folk beat.

The findings aren't without controversy — particularly whether or not the measurements used really reveal intelligence. Still, the study highlights the trouble with measuring intelligence over time: Smarts aren't defined as just one thing. What makes a person clever on the African Savannah could be nearly useless in the financial centers of Hong Kong.

"It's not simply that intelligence is going down or going up," said Michael Woodley, a psychologist at Umea University in Sweden who led the new research. "Different parts of intelligence could be changing in lots of different ways."

Happiness + Hallucinations = Spirituality

Many highly spiritual people report experiences that are akin to mild versions of psychiatric illnesses. That's not terribly surprising because, as researchers have learned, hallucinations and such like are actually a rather common part of the human experience.

Probably 70% of people experience some form of 'unusual experiences' at some time in their lives.

Now, you might think that hallucinations would be distressing, but people often report them to be quite pleasant. What's more, spiritual people often report being happier than average.

The Science and Psychology of Lucid Dreaming

They call themselves oneironauts, "dream sailors," those who can influence their own dreams, if not quite control them, to such a degree that sleep becomes an inner exploration, a virtual reality simulator for real life.

With roots in the rituals of Tibetan dream yogis, and links to unscientific paranormal research, the practice can seem a bit loopy.

But "lucid dreaming" – the state of being awake and aware that you are asleep and dreaming – is real, experimentally verified, and based firmly in evolutionary theory and current sleep psychology. The two fields are only beginning to understand the wondrous types of consciousness that can be produced during the sleep cycle, when the body is paralyzed and the mind is at play.

After decades on the fringes of psychology, with its existence denied by Sigmund Freud, lucid dreaming is now emerging as a natural explanation for out-of-body experiences.

10 Unusual Ways to Live Longer

By Jenny Green / Source:

Just how much do you want to live a long, long life? You're already eating properly (well, most of the time), you keep fit (when you remember) and you don't smoke, having given up successfully many times. What other lengths are you prepared to go to?

In the past, people tried many different methods to promote their longevity, some more pleasant than others. Did you know, for example, that Taoist sexual practices, if performed correctly, are supposed to confer immortality?

Over the centuries humans have tried to live longer by eating such things as rattlesnakes, caterpillar fungus and bee pollen. They've drunk mercury, tea mushroom extract and colostrum, the first milk of new mothers.

Nowadays we know a lot more about strategies that can really work. Here are some of the more unusual ones.

90% of Illness Is Caused By the Mind

"90 percent of all illnesses are caused by the mind."

That's a famous quote from mind empowerment pioneer Jose Silva, the man credited with bringing modern meditation to the west.

Silva was convinced that if most illnesses are caused by the mind, they can also be REVERSED by the mind.

He spent over 4 decades of his life studying the human mind and collaborating with scientists and researchers, attempting to understand and awaken this possibility.

And what he found may just change the course of medical history.

Painting With The Power of Thought

To the viewer it is an accomplished semiabstract image of flowers and clouds, but in fact this painting was produced by a paralysed woman solely through the power of thought.
PaintingHeide Pfützner, a former teacher from Leipzig, Germany, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Motor Neurone Disease, yet she has managed to produce a series of the paintings with the aid of a new brain controlled computer.

She has been trained to master the device that uses brain waves to take control of a palette of colours, shapes and brushes to produce digital artworks.

Building on decades of knowledge about the meaning of the tiny electrical impulses created by the brain during thought, scientists have been able to create a computer programme which translates thoughts into electronic images.

Mind-Reading Computer Could Communicate With Coma Patients

Canadian researchers have developing a mind-reading computer that could help communicate with people in a coma.

The University of Western Ontario researchers used neuroimaging to read human thoughts via brain activity when they are conveying specific 'yes' or 'no' answers.

The team say their research could lead to dramatic new ways of attempting to communicate with patients in a vegetative state.

Their findings were published today in The Journal of Neuroscience in a study titled, The Brain's Silent Messenger: Using Selective Attention to Decode Human Thought for Brain-Based Communication.

According to lead researcher Lorina Naci, the interpretation of human thought from brain activity – without depending on speech or action – is one of the most provoking and challenging frontiers of modern neuroscience.

Orgasms Unlock Altered Consciousness

By Kayt Sukel / Source: New Scientist

With a click and a whirr, I am pulled into the scanner. My head is strapped down and I have been draped with a blanket so that I may touch my nether regions - my clitoris in particular - with a certain degree of modesty. I am here neither for a medical procedure nor an adult movie. Rather, I am about to stimulate myself to orgasm while an fMRI scanner tracks the blood flow in my brain.

My actions are helping Barry Komisaruk at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, and colleagues to tease apart the mechanisms underlying sexual arousal. In doing so, not only have they discovered that there is more than one route to orgasm, but they may also have revealed a novel type of consciousness - an understanding of which could lead to new treatments for pain.

Despite orgasm being a near-universal human phenomenon, we still don't know all that much about it. "The amount of speculation versus actual data on both the function and value of orgasm is remarkable," says Julia Heiman, director of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction in Bloomington, Indiana.

How to Turn Setbacks Into Springboards

Napoleon Hill said many times, "Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit."
Motivational speakers will often tell you, "If life hands you a lemon, turn it into lemonade."

Is this really possible?

Let me ask you a question.

Choose to BelieveDo you believe that negative events can be used for positive purposes?

If not, you've failed before you've even begun.

The reason being that none of us will put forth any significant effort to accomplish something we believe cannot be done.

And you'll never succeed at something you never try.
