Reinventing the Human Body

A quiet desperation is creeping into the mind of man. We're in trouble and we know it, and some of us are going in a radical and completely incredible direction: they're trying to completely reinvent the human body itself.

Geneticists can edit DNA to cure disease, add new chromosomes to build a super soldier, and even email one another original DNA. Brain scientists are working on activating the potential of the super brain and nanotechnology is combining with artificial intelligence to create humanity 2.0, the human bio computer. Transhumanists are working toward creating digital copies of ourselves that can exist in a simulated reality.

This “transhumanist resurrection” is detailed in an astounding article written by Transhumanist Eric Steinhart called Your Digital Afterlives.

This is far more incredible than you may imagine. It won't be long before your entire mental content will be able to be recorded. Will it become possible to literally play you back on a super-advanced recorder-player of some kind? And what will death mean when we can recreate our own bodies and refill the brains with the entire life of a person who has died?

Listen as William Henry does another of his exciting new audio blogs about the promise and the dangers of a revolution that is coming straight at us from the immediate future.

Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD. Man's folly is that he thinks curiosity justifies ANYTHING he creates.

When I die, I want to die in the traditional understanding of the process. My NDE and other experiences convince me there is a reason for the traditional state of death.

In man's capitalistic "wisdom", those who can AFFORD it will be able to use this new technology (not necessarily the best or most enlightened of us.) Don't you just want an eternal Hitler or other tyrant?

BTW, Dick Cheney seems to have already figured out a way to live into perpetuity. Isn't that just the kind of influence you want hanging around in the world?!

I find this technology disturbing and anathema to everything I believe in.

In the series Black Mirror, Episode 1 Season 2 (Be right back) features a story where a synthetic body is infused with data from the deceased's computer and social media posts to create a "new version". It is one of the best in the Black Mirror series so far and echoes almost identically what William mentions in this podcast.

The recent reboot of Battlestar Galactica also had a major theme of the human model Cylons being able to download into a new body if destroyed.
