Melissa Dykes from TruthStreamMedia has been doing such extraordinary work on the transhumanism beat. It’s such a joy to watch the ideas she works unfold.
Today’s piece ties into one I recently wrote about the subject of immortality and how, in a mechanistic worldview, immortality is equated with transhumanism and entails uploading one’s brain into a computer.
It seems to me that if a fancy robot which recreates one’s mannerisms is supposed to represent “immortality” then clearly, scientistic materialists don’t believe in life. They think that life and sentience are outgrowths of chemical processes, rather than the other way around.
Or am I missing something? Is there is something that the technocrats know about what mind uploading would entail?
Their answer is in this video. It’s called the “connectome”.
Princeton professor Sebastian Seung is shown at a TEDtalk asserting that the way each one of our hundred billion neurons are wired is what shapes or “encodes” our identity and our personality. He leads the audience in the dystopic chant, “I am my connectome”. On his website, he even proclaims that “Information is the new soul”.
A lot of this work in brain mapping is being funded by the White House BRAIN Initiative announced by Barack Obama in 2013 and co-planned by Rockefeller University, where “BRAIN” is an acronym for “Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies”.
Melissa Dykes very aptly cites the late great science fiction author, Phillip K Dick, “Fake realities will create fake humans. Or, fake humans will generate fake realities and then sell to other humans, turning them, eventually, into forgeries of themselves.”
