Yuval Noah Harari said that we at the moment are ‘hackable’ animals, on the precipice of a brand new revolution that shall goal not the world round us however inside us for the profoundest of transformations. A silent revolution carried out in labs with out wars and upheaval however which can without end alter the that means of what it means to be human(and past). How does the trans-gender motion match into all this? Some speculations.
Transhumanism hopes to merge biology with know-how. Man and machine.
Transhumanists know many individuals will likely be freaked out by the prospect of bio-engineering and bio-mecha fusion. In any case, all of it sounds so monstrous and grotesque, an institutionalization and normalization of Frankenstein Science. Subsequently, transhumanists imagine that the lots must be made much less proof against radical futurism for humanity into transhumanity.
That’s the reason transhumanists push stuff like homomania, tranny lunacy, and 50 genders. They need to make us get used to the concept that humanity is infinitely fluid & malleable and may very well be(and must be ) molded into something anybody wishes. THAT is why transhumanists made an alliance with gender-bender neighborhood.
Because the elites(particularly these in high-tech) are geeks and nerds who grew up on science-fiction as faith and utopianism, they’ve a futurist-warped view of dream and future.
They need to evolve into ‘gods’. It’s like that lunatic Michio Kaku the Cuckoo speaking about people changing into godlike sooner or later and even touring by time. It could entail utilizing bio-engineering to increase life to 500 yrs or possibly for eternity. It means rising human IQ to 1000. It means merging brains with computer systems. It means having the web and stuff inside our brains and our bodies.
So, as machines turn into extra like man, man will turn into extra like machines. Whereas some individuals are excited by such prospects, many(particularly those that are typically pure conservatives or pure humanists) will recoil in horror. Subsequently, transhumanists search to de-legitimize conservative or humanist convictions by selling homomania because the New Regular.
Might or not it’s that transhumanism is a bizarre type of race-ism?
‘Anti-racism’ says that each one races are the identical and that evolution successfully halted for mankind 10,000 yrs in the past. Following this logic, all races are alike aside from pores and skin colour, and moreover, the very thought of ‘race’ has no validity by any means and is nothing however a fantasy ‘social assemble’ cooked up by white supremacist cranks within the nineteenth century. That’s all there may be to it, there may be nothing extra to debate, and everybody ought to simply settle for the iron regulation of human immutability.
People should be immutable since 10,000 yrs couldn’t make any additional dent in evolution to create significant divergences amongst homo sapiens. In different phrases, it isn’t doable for the human species to evolve into completely different races even when it needed to. Identical to nothing can journey sooner than the pace of sunshine, nothing of any significance may evolve amongst people since 10,000 yrs in the past. ‘Anti-racists’ have been pushing this iron immutability of mankind as a great factor, i.e. we should always hand over on noticing group variations as a result of all human teams/races are basically alike, should be basically alike, and haven’t any alternative however to be basically alike since evolution simply floor to a halt 10,000 yrs in the past. If anybody does discover group or racial variations, he’s both hallucinating or misreading the information OR the variations, whereas actual, are too slight and superficial to have any affect on the way forward for humanity.
If the anti-‘racist’ dogma of human immutability(since 10,000 yrs in the past) is right, then how may transhumanism be a great factor amongst ‘progressives’? In any case, transhumanism envisions the means to create super-beings through genetic engineering. Transhumanist neighborhood needs to create a brand new type of people who find themselves taller, stronger, smarter, sexier, and longer-lived with future know-how. It’s obsessive about the prospect. Then, how come ‘progressive’ ‘anti-racists’ haven’t any drawback with transhumanism? And if the human DNA has been genetically immutable regardless of 10,000 yrs of divergent evolutionary pressures, how is it doable that it may abruptly be altered profoundly with just a few tweaking within the laboratory? (Progs say 10,000 yrs of evolution couldn’t alter man’s nature BUT a person can turn into a lady in 1 day by placing on wig and declaring that his penis and testicles are ‘feminine’ organs.)
If progressive ‘anti-racism’ tolerates or accepts transhumanism, it must withstand some critical implications. In accepting transhumanism, progressivism may have achieved the next:
1. It’ll have demonstrated that people are certainly mutable. They are often genetically and basically modified, altered, modified, and boosted in all types of latest/other ways. That being the case, how can anybody insist on the immutability of the human species previously 10,000 yrs? Some argue people haven’t modified a lot previously 60,000 yrs.
2. It’ll have demonstrated that it’s a good suggestion to create a brand new class, caste, or race of people who find themselves far superior to the prevailing races of individuals. Transhumanists might not name the New People a ‘new race’, however that’s precisely what they’ll turn into. This goes towards the Progressive ideology of equality, although, to make sure, through the agenda of transhumanism, the course of progressivism is coming full circle and returning to its roots of eugenics and racial enchancment. In any case, the unique progressivism wasn’t about progressing right into a world of equal mediocrity however about progressing right into a world of superiority by weeding our mediocre and inferior traits.
If transhumanists discover a option to create a brand new crop of people who find themselves super-strong, super-intelligent, and super-beautiful(like the enormous albinos at first of PROMETHEUS) and if this new breed select to mate each other and kind their very own separate neighborhood, how would that not represent the creation-emergence of a brand new race, certainly one that may tower over us to be regarded and even discarded because the inferior race?
As a result of the New Breed will likely be demonstrably superior to us unique people, it is going to imply that actuality of racial variations will turn into starker than ever. How perverse that the elites who decry notion of racial variations are so hellbent on creating superior races… although they are going to absolutely make use of all types of semantic video games to masks what they’re actually as much as.
It’s like Martine Rosenblatt parades round as a sufferer — Jewish, homo-tranny-lesbian, married to manly Negress, — , however his/her/its actual ambition is to turn into superior to everybody else and achieve god-like energy over humanity.
Are we going through the top of humanism with the gradual however sure daybreak of transhumanism?
Nazism sought to create the right hero, and communism sought to create the best employee. However perfectionist radicalization of beliefs might be harmful, and each Nazism and communism did incalculable hurt to mankind.
In distinction, humanism reminds us to be what we’re and settle for what we’re, warts and all.
Settle for the actual than obsess over the best, be it from the left or the best.
However with the explosion of freedom and abundance, the ‘actual’ obtained boring to lots of people, particularly to the elites. Our shopper tradition feeds on self-importance and narcissism. So, everybody needs to be ultimate than actual, and other people’s beliefs are outlined by their eccentricities. If the vulgar lots are glad with popular culture idolatry and movie star tradition, the elites need greater than fantasy. They need the precise means to dwell without end and mutate into bird-man and god-man.
In sure respects, trans-genderism has been peddled as a type of humanism, i.e. it’s about how we must be tolerant and accepting of trans-gender individuals for what they’re than forcing them to evolve to our ultimate of what’s correct and regular.
However upon nearer inspection, it’s actually a type of anti-humanism as a result of so-called trans-gender individuals received’t settle for what they are surely — males or girls with screwy bio-chemistry — and demand excessive medical procedures and semantic convolutions as a way to be ‘transitioned’ into their not possible ‘beliefs’. It’s a type of transhumanism that rejects the natural-born-self as boring, unsatisfying, & restrictive and strives for(and even calls for)the ‘ultimate’ of what one needs oneself to be… like Michael Jackson turning himself into one thing like a white cartoon girl.
The mentalities behind Elliott Rogers(the psycho-nut who killed innocents) and most trans-gender individuals aren’t a lot completely different. They’re anti-humanist and obsessive about their very own self-deluded ‘beliefs’. Rogers was miffed that the world didn’t see him the best way he noticed himself: The good and handsomest dude that ever lived. And trans-gender individuals are indignant that many individuals nonetheless refuse to see them because the divas they need to be. (If the grossly fats transvestite Divine no less than understood the ridiculousness of his fantasy and camped it up, his counterparts right now, with the complete backing of the Institution, are totally missing in irony & humor and demand that they be considered empresses of glamour.) Each Rodgers and trans-gender individuals can not settle for themselves as what they are surely. They need to be one thing else, and worse, they demand that we flatter and ensure their self-delusions. It’s ironic that individuals who can’t tolerate their natural-born-selves demand that we not solely tolerate however rejoice their false-imagined selves.
There may be a few of this in ‘cuckold’ tradition as effectively. White males can not settle for their ‘inadequacies’ and they also sexually dwell by black males invited to have intercourse with their wives. Watching black males getting it on with their white wives, they vicariously establish with each the black male and white feminine as conqueror and conquered. Trans-marriage-ism?
At any price, humanism is in unhappy decline. It’s seen as too humdrum in our Age of Extra.
Zeligism went from neurosis to the brand new regular.
The primary decoding of the DNA was prohibitively costly. However now it’s low cost and out there to any individual for $200.
Within the current, bio-engineering remains to be in its nascent stage, and out there procedures are super-expensive. Sooner or later, all manners of genetic-alteration could also be doable, they usually could also be extensively reasonably priced(and even thought of a ‘human proper’), particularly with assistance from A.I.
If civilization survives, future infants may very well be made this manner:
Think about a computerized glass panel. Would-be-father presses his thumb on part of the glass that reads his imprinted DNA, after which the would-be-mother does the identical.
After which the A.I. program combines the genetic codes of the ‘father’ and ‘mom’ and affords varied doable mixture of these codes. (In any case, similar man and similar girl have completely different youngsters each time they procreate.) After which, the pc affords ‘bio-photo-shopping’ in order that the essential choice-kid might be altered with additions of elective exterior genes. So, if the person needs the child to look extra like Sean Connery, the child will likely be Connerized with extra traits(to be offered by the A.I.). Thus, the daddy’s appears to be like are ‘improved’ by Connerization. And if the child is to be a woman, the pc can boost her genes for the Patricia Neal look in THE FOUNTAINHEAD. The child will likely be Nealized. (For the negress infants, their appears to be like might be improved with additions of Diana Ross or Rihanna artificial genes.) Additionally, the essential IQ might be boosted with Newtonization and Einsteinization.
After which the outcome will likely be allowed to develop in an aquarium and switch right into a child, to be milked by synthetic robotic nanny.
At present, with so many freaks in transhumanism, the impression is that genetic-technology will result in divergence: Folks turning into grotesque freaks and mutants sooner or later. However really, if given the selection, most individuals will select the Slim Ideally suited. I imply most guys, if given a alternative between having a son that appears like Sean Connery or Johnny Rotten, is gonna go together with Connery. Most girls, if given a alternative between having a woman who appears to be like like Patricia Neal or Jeanine Garofalo, is gonna go together with Neal(or Donna Reed, so great in IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE).
So, it will likely be the nice convergence than the nice divergence. At present, the trans-gender and transhumanist communities are stuffed with freaks, uglies, dogulas, frankenstepforders, and the like as a result of we don’t have the know-how to REALLY change individuals. The choices are beauty, surgical, or bio-chemical. However no quantity of costume & make-up, surgical procedure, or hormone injections can actually change somebody. So, most males who need to be girls and vice versa simply appear like perverse freaks. And most transhumanists who need to be like future androids simply appear like dorks at a STAR TREK conference. There may be the impression that transhumanism is all about being ‘completely different’ and freaky.
However suppose sooner or later there actually is a way to basically change an individual in the best way he needs to be. Suppose Bruce Jenner not solely needs to be a lady however can stroll inside a field after which stroll out as a full-blown girl in each means. At the moment, he appears to be like silly as a result of he appears to be like like a person who needs to appear like Claudia Cardinale or Raquel Welch. However suppose he may actually be became a beautiful girl. Then, he would not appear like a freak however like a very attractive girl. The rationale why so many individuals appear like freaks within the trans-gender and transhumanist world is as a result of discrepancy between what they’re and what they actually need to be. Since there may be, as but, no efficient option to understand their desires, they find yourself wanting like freaks, like botch-up jobs. Each ultra-freak is exclusive as a failure of fantasy. However in truth, ultra-freaks don’t need to be freaks. They’re ultra-freaks due to the farce of making an attempt so exhausting to be what they’ll’t be. However the extra they attempt to turn into their ultimate fantasies, the extra freaky they give the impression of being due to the sheer desperation of warping actuality into fantasy. It’s like Michael Jackson obtained more and more hideous as he tried to excellent himself. Typically with ultra-freaks, we aren’t seeing their desired however their disastrous persona that didn’t dwell as much as their dream as a result of no know-how as but exists to grant their needs. Whereas perfection and success have just one summit, imperfection and failure are strewn all around the slopes and valleys. As a result of, as but, trans-genderism and transhumanism have led to so many laughable failures, we’re fooled into believing that such divergences are the goals of the ultra-freaks within the motion. However in truth, most ultra-freaks need to be reworked into perfection, and if the transhumanist second actually arrives, there would be the nice convergence since virtually no girl will need to appear like Lena Dunham or Divine if she will be able to appear like Ashley Greene, and virtually no man will need to appear like Michael Moore or Mack Beggs.
