Ignorance Is Futile:

Direct link between historical Eugenicists and modern Techno-Plutocrats established.

The “Techonomy” conference is happening (right now) August 4-6, in Lake Tahoe, California. Organized by Fortune magazine veterans David Kirkpatrick, Peter Petre and Brent Schlender, the conference is set to showcase the future economy envisioned by the ruling technocrats .

NASA’s “Planetary Skin” global monitoring system this is in part designed to build in effect a “resource economy” should be quite relevant here:

The promotional site features a list of infamous people of yesteryear, and modern day ‘heroes’, that if there weren’t an actual conference to go it it it’d be hard to believe. Many people rightfully associate transhumanist technocrats of today, with the eugenicists of generations ago.This is the first open embracement of the infamous eugencists by the Technological Establishment I’ve ever seen.

Some of the historical names from the list (quotes in red)[modern 'techonomists' follow below]:

Thomas Malthus (1766-1834) – the British scholar was the first true demographer, who studied population growth and the effects of famine and disease
Forced population control chieftain.

Karl Marx (1818-1883) – originator of Marxist and Communist economic theories
Needs no introduction.

Thomas Watson (1874-1956) – early president of IBM
Central figure in the IBM & the Holocaust forgotten history. Nazi business partner.
IBM built the machines Hitler used to conduct the census, central in hunting down all of the Jews. Right up until the end of the war, IBM continued to build the punch card machines used to run the concentration camps. Back in those days, there were mechanical engineers in place of todays software engineers. Each machine with a different calculation or tabulation purpose had to be specifically engineered. IBM did this right until months before the Nazi’s were defeated. After the war, IBM was allowed to go in and collect the debt owed to them by Germany.

Margaret Sanger (1879-1966) – an early advocate of methods of contraception and founder of what eventually became Planned Parenthood
Top eugenics activist and propagandist.

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) – British economist whose theories about fiscal and monetary practice have influenced government intervention in the capitalist marketplace to mitigate the adverse effects of business cycles
Economist who instituted price fixing on goods, for example. He was a eugenicist.

Stephen D. Bechtel (1900-1989) – the son of the founder of the engineering and construction company that bears his name, the younger Bechtel built many of the man-made wonders of the world including Hoover Dam, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, and the English Channel Tunnel
They don’t mention what Bechtel is really known for: War profiteering.

Walt Disney (1901-1966)– animation pioneer, entertainment entrepreneur
Sure, everyone loves Disney World.
But do you know what EPCOT stands for? It was Walt’s grand vision, the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.
Walt Disney stated that no one in EPCOT would own their land. There would be no difference between an apartment and a home. There would be no retirees—everyone would have been required to have a job. In the late 1970s, Disney CEO Card Walker wanted to revisit the EPCOT idea. But the board was still wary and all agreed that Walt’s EPCOT would not work in its initial incarnation; they thought that no one would want to live under a microscope and be watched constantly. The result of the compromise was the EPCOT Center theme park (now Epcot), which opened in 1982.

J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) – director of the Manhattan Project that developed the first atomic bomb
Sure, the age would come, and there was the war, but regardless he’s shining example of the types of scientists who will push on no matter the consequences, as in he himself said that the technical challenge is what motivated him.
Today under the AGI Manhattan Project, mad scientists are at it again risking all human life in pursuit of solving what they refer to as “problems” (i.e. lack of beyond-human level artificial intelligence, and so on). Other Manhattan Project v1.0 attendees are on the list. He advocated a Technocratic government, essentially run by a scientific elite. He was a de facto communist.

Linus Pauling (1901-1994) – father of modern molecular biology
Top eugenicist.

Ray Kroc (1902-1984) – using assembly line discipline, the entrepreneur who parlayed a small drive-in restaurant franchise into McDonald’s Corp., the largest and most successful fast-food operation in the world
Clown food, marketed to kids specifically.

Gregory Pincus (1903-1967) – American biologist who invented the oral contraceptive pill
Top eugenicist.

Rachel Carson (1907-1964) – biologist and writer who helped pioneer environmentalism
Controversial character, whose alarmist 1962 book, Silent Spring, lead to the worldwide banning of DDT. DDT has proven to be harmful, but many cite the million people who die per year from malaria as evidence of a population control scheme. There are merits to the arguments, but it is a highly debatable issue.

Walter Reuther (1907-1970) – the self-proclaimed socialist transformed the United Auto Workers labor union into a national political force in the mid-20th century
The concept of labor unions: good. The way I’ve seen them in practice, both in Michigan and in Florida: really bad.

Werner von Braun (1912-1977) – German rocket architect and space physicist, during World War II he was chief designer of Germany’s V-2 missile, and later the Saturn V booster rocket for the Apollo moon missions
Nazi war scientist who used slave laborers to build his weapons of war.

Francis Crick (1916-2004) – British biologist who along with James Watson discovered the structure of DNA
Eugenicist.

Arthur C. Clarke (1917-2008) – a British science fiction writer who was trained as a radar technician and was the first to propose using satellites to relay telecommunications around the world
And who promoted the idea of communications satellites leading to a global “United Nations of the World” government.

Sam Walton (1918-1992) – Founder of Wal-Mart

Robert Swanson (1947-1999) – co-Founder of Genentech and former venture capitalist
He is regarded as an instrumental figure in launching the biotechnology revolution.

Present Techonomists

NOTE: You might not know how to out many of these names and institutions without being familiar with my AGI Manhattan Project thesis.

Paul Allen – Microsoft co-founder
Bill Gates – co-founder of Microsoft and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Warren Buffett – chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, primary contributor to the Gates Foundation
Melinda Gates – co-chair of the Gates Foundation

Microsoft is deeply integrated in the AGI Manhattan Project. Bill Gates is dumping virtually all of his billions into the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and so is Warren Buffet (the wealthiest man in the world). If you think it’s all in good cause, you might reconsider.

Andreas Bechtolsheim – electrical engineer and computer and networking equipment designer, co-founder of Sun and primary angel investor to Google

Sir Tim Berners-Lee – Inventor of the Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) that transformed the Internet from a communications tool mainly for scientists into a conduit for multimedia expression
While Tim did the world a favor in inventing HTML, his agenda in modern times to to turn the web “semantic“, which will inherently help accelerate strong AI.

Bono – musician and social activist
Regardless of what you might think of U2′s music, Bono is deep in bed with the worlds elitist plutocrats.

Stewart Brand – biologist, ecologist, author of Whole Earth Discipline
Embraces genetic engineering in the fight against Global Warming. Involved in transhumanist circles, deeply connected to the Technological Establishment. follower of Malthusian population apocalypse ideas, and ‘non-racist eugenics’.

Sir Richard Branson – Virgin empire impresario — Virgin America, Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Galactic, Virgin Records, Virgin Mobile
Major supporter of Al Gore’s version of of extremist global warming alarmism, along with James Lovelock’s insinuations that by ’2040, the world population of more than six billion will have been culled by floods, drought and famine.’ What’s dangerous about these ideas is that the only real way to stop these scenarios would be to institute massive population reduction not for off from the numbers in those warnings.

Jim Breyer – managing partner of Accel Partners
Deep ties with numerous AGI Manhattan Project institutions including Stanford, HP, Apple and more.

John Chambers – Cisco CEO
Cisco is highly integrated into the AGI Manhattan Project.

George Church – Harvard biotech prof
Big league scientist in the biotechnology / Life Extension arm of the AGI Manhattan Project.

John Doerr – managing partner of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
Intelligence Establishment crony. KPCB is a primary funding house for high tech firms such as Google, as well as companies poised to reap profits from global warming alarmism.

Larry Ellison – founder and CEO of Oracle
Oracle got it’s name from a CIA database project Ellison worked on early in his career, and today Oracle is a major player in the AGI Manhattan Project. He’s gone on to become of the filthiest wealthy men on earth, and the word filthiest is used as he’s the poster-child of the plutocracy. He’s at the forefront of the Life Extension movement, funding on the order of $100 million per year in the quest for the elite to live indefinite lifespans. He’s also real close with Larry Summers, a key architect in the economic collapse. His favorite quote tells the whole story:

Andy Grove – legendary Intel CEO
Intel is key in the Singularity Movement / AGI Manhattan project.

Steve Jobs – co-founder and CEO of Apple and former CEO of Pixar Animation Studios

Bill Joy – senior partner at KPCB focusing exclusively on greentech startup companies, co-founder of Sun Microsystems, and creator of the “Berkeley UNIX” operating system.
Became famous outside of the IT world for publishing a paper titled “Why the future doesn’t need us“, arguing of the threats of looming radical technologies, and for retiring from Sun at about the same time. He then got hooked up with the elite, joined Kleiner Perkins, and funds some of the very technologies he warned about.

Ray Kurzweil – artificial intelligence maven
The effective messiah and top level propagandist of the Singularity Movement. He deep into the political, corporate, military and governmental collaborator in the AGI Manhattan Project.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin – founders of Google
Eric Schmidt – CEO of Google, former CEO of Novell Systems, former chief technology officer at Sun Microsystems, Xerox PARC alum

Google is top-level deepest-integration possible in the AGI Manhattan Project. Virtually every service they provide is geared to have the users develop strong AI (AGI) via everyday use.

George Soros – global financier, author
This man should need no introduction.

Ted Turner – philanthropist and former television and media impresario

Craig Venter – founder of Celera Genomics, The Institute for Genomic Research, and the J.Craig Venter Institute, which is now creating synthetic biological organisms for use in research and industry
Synthetic biologist. Once when ask what he felt about playing god he said: “We’re not playing… We’re not playing”. He also advocates that every persons DNA should be searchable by anyone on Google.

Kevin Czinger – the former Goldman Sachs investment banker is CEO of Coda Automotive, California designer of electric vehicles that are manufactured in China

Anne Wojcicki – the Stanford-educated geneticist is the founder of 23andMe, which develops tests to identify gene markers for susceptibility to particular diseases
The wife of Google co-founder Sergei Brin, she runs 23andMe, an open DNA based social networking site that has a history of targeting youth events, obvious deliberate indoctrination.

Mark Zuckerberg – founder and mastermind of Facebook, the leading Internet social network platform
Facebook is the greatest tool out there of conditioning people to want to have no privacy. You all probably know the details by now.

So there you have the highlights from their list. The funny thing is they have the likes of Thomas Jefferson listed. As one friend pointed out, if he were alive he’d be setting up ambushes (that’s not to advocate such, but it’s funny no less). This is one of the more complete lists of enemies of humanity out there. If only Hitler, Mao, Lenin and Stalin (and some of their modern contemporaries) were on the list it would be near complete.

The majority of these people don’t care about you. They’re adherents to elitist social darwinist theory, and part of the social group of plutocrat eugenicists that express disdain for the masses while embracing being able to extend their own lives.

Ignorance Is Futile Exclusive:

I’ve yet to see the question asked: with increasing computer power and quality of techniques why aren’t ‘we’ getting better at sustainable economics? Where is our age of prosperity? Increased computational power shouldn’t mean decreased prosperity for all… unless it’s being used to deliberately plunder the masses.

When we look at all the figures, from where the debt economy has been going for years, to the way the specific meltdown occurred and was carried out, to what’s looming on the horizon, how isn’t this deliberate?

This trend has been accelerating almost directly in line with accelerating technological change and the ever increasing collective power of the computers of those at the commanding heights.

Not even boosts in personal productivity from cell phones has managed to allow the populace to try and keep pace with the growing plutocrat oligarchs:

This is simple, and complex.

Simple Answer:
The economic war has been underway for many years, but until more recently it was a slow crawling menace. Until the mid-2000′s it was more of a scheme to cheat the masses, to keep us undermined yet just happy enough to not really notice the gradual decline. However, over the past few decades it has increased at an alarming rate, incidentally in line with computational increase. Until about 5 years ago it was mostly a plundering of the nation, and right about when that was finished, and when we were all unwittingly at our weakest ever, and when the technology was in place to pull it off, and with a new level of motivation never seen before, the plutocrats went for the jugular of the masses directly and then furthered their cause by instituting TARP “bailouts”.

This came as a one-two punch:
(1) They triggered the sea of debt into a tsunami by imploding the Property Price Index (engineered housing bubble), which directly plundered the ‘wealth’ of those who bought into the con.

(2) Oil price gauging. Completely manufactured fuel price hikes. Virtually everything we use is made from petroleum distillates & derivatives, and is then transported using petroleum based fuels. Triple the price of fuel, by design considering the actual cost and production of oil had never changed, and spike the prices of almost literally everything we all take for granted.

The timing of these 2 events is what to focus on. The fuel crisis was ratcheted up right in line with the increasingly looming ‘pop’ of the housing bubble, which squeezed everyone, especially the poor and the newly damned.

Complex Analysis:

Not only has the global economy imploded rather dramatically, all the hard numbers point towards an inevitable total collapse, especially in the USA. The Federal Reserve and EU Bank are both privately owned institutions, and there’s no debating this fact. The Federal Reserve in particular was at the heart of the US economic meltdown, which brought the rest of the world with it. These institutions are literally at the helm of each federal economy, and aren’t subject to being audited. They’re above each government, just the same as your local city government is subject to the state government, and the state to the federal government.

The global banking scheme is seemingly leading the world into a post-apocalyptic nightmare. How is this possible? Today we have increasingly powerful computers of all different sizes, yet the more powerful our computing hardware and software becomes the faster we’re falling into the abyss, instead of rising to an economic utopia. Computers clearly aren’t helping the system maintain a balanced budget sheet, while when you look at the graphs it appears they’re helping the elitist plutocracy to plunder the nations. Ask yourself how in the face of everything that’s happened in the past few year, billionaires increased in numbers and profits at a record rate in 2009 (Link 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).

What a trillion dollars looks like in $100 bills:

Many people put all of the blame of our current woes on the housing bubble, but a more realistic view is that that crisis only sped up the inevitable. The massive spending associated with bailouts and stimulation merely put off even longer the inevitable. The longer this inevitable is put off the harder the crash will be. Just look at the numbers. Spending got us into the mess, so in response they spend and loan even more. Like it’s going out of style… literally.

It wasn’t originally designed to implode, despite that being how it looks today, but it’s always been designed to leech away the self-reliable wealth of those with less. The less you have the more it hurts you… is and always has been the purpose of the privately owned Federal Reserve bank. The mechanism responsible is inflation.

When the value of the dollar is deliberately reduced every year it creates a situation where you have to set up your surplus finances in ways that will hedge against the inflationary dollar devaluation. During ‘normal’ times, you could invest your money into your home or other property and as the value of the dollar goes down the value of the property would go up. This is just the opposite with automobiles which helps explain why social engineering has us all obsessing with dumping all of our money into our cars that are worth $10,000 less the day you drive it off the lot. Everybody’s primary financial concerns should be in how to position their earnings against inflation, not new spinner rims.

Now what happened with the housing meltdown is the big trend that makes it hard to believe that the design wasn’t to rob almost literally all of the populace, as normally the best thing the little guy can do is invest in his property so that he can fight off inflation. All those years most people thought their house was somehow naturally going up in value, in reality the dollar was going down in value and the markets knew it. Except now the value of our homes has plummeted, it’s unsafe to even invest in property, endless millions refinanced their homes and now owe more than the property is worth, and some 60% of US national assets have been absorbed by the Federal Reserve and the Big 6 banking cartel that are the majority stock holders in the “Fed”.

The other catalyst of the economic downturn was the fuel price crisis. It served as the 1-2 punch to the entire global economy. In the graph above you can see that the more fuel consumption went down the more the price went up. This is the opposite of how the market works, proving massive manipulation. What’s important about is it happened directly parallel to the housing collapse, which made its effects substantially worse than if it occurred in 1999. Assuming it was deliberate, what does this tell you about the titans of Wall Street and their disdain for the global populace?

That graph shows that neither oil production nor inventory had ever changed in ways to justify the spike in prices. On the contrary, inventories went up while consumption was down while mass scale price gouging like never before was in full effect. The answer for how this happened was market speculation. The big banks and hedge funds in effect ‘all’ got together and continuously bet in large scale that oil prices would go up, and sure enough that’s what happened. The costs of everything went up, people were broke, major institutions absorbed by the government & banks, the property markets crashed, and now the inevitable collapse is out in the open for everyone to see.

Note that during the peak of the oil crisis Obama actually went on the record saying that ‘fuel’ prices should be artificially increased so that people would use less fossil fuels. Now he didn’t say to raise oil prices in that particular quote, but inherently that is the overall goal of Cap’N Trade type policies, and we all had a devastating test run during the artificial fuel crisis. Can anyone say they were glad the test run of Cap & Trade happened?

Obama’s Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is a Federal Reserve agent, being the former president of the New York branch Federal Reserve Bank. Other Federal Reserve agents in the Obama Administration include Paul Volker, Christina Romer, Alan Blinder, Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers.

As with 9/11, Bush ignored all of the warnings of the looming ‘economic 9/11′. His Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson was the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, a key player in the economic meltdown. Goldman has embraced the world of AI, with sophisticated AI supercomputers that utilize learning algorithms to conduct “high frequency trading” that allows them to literally cheat at the stock trading game, and in all likelihood conduct operations such as artificially raising global fuel prices. Goldman Sachs agents in the Obama’s inner circle include Gary Gensler, John Corzine, Rahm Emanuel, Mark Patterson, Neel Kashkari, Reuben Jeffery III and apparently even Elana Kagen.

During the economic disaster, Goldman executives cheered their results, emails went on to show. All throughout the crisis, Sachs reaped billions of dollars in record profits while the rest of the world economy has floundered. In July of 2010 Sachs was fined the record amount of $550 million by the SEC for their role in the Subprime fiasco. The same day their stocks actually went up 5% as those in the game know how much evil they had committed, and were relieved at only having to pay a mere $550 million. Days after the settlement, Sach’s put aside $9 billion for employee bonuses.
Sachs was Obama second largest campaign contributor, funneling him $994,795, 7 times what Enron famously gave to Bush. His other top contributors included Google, Harvard, University of California, Microsoft, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Stanford, IBM, Morgan Stanley, BP and General Electric.

These people are textbook “Disaster Capitalists”, those whose portfolios are stacked to reap profits and success in their goals via the mass scale suffering of others. It’s no secret that BushCo. was a regime of disaster capitalists, but ObamaCo. is too. Rahm Emanuel and Hillary Clinton have made public statements condoning the capitalization of crisis. The notorious Henry Kissinger said the economic crisis was a “great opportunity” for Obama to create a “new world order.”



Disaster capitalists are amongst the greatest threat to the world, as having people set up to reap profits ranging from millions to trillions sets a precedent of why would they prevent the crisis, especially if there are agendas that transcend money. “Problem Reaction Solution” is the mechanism to our undoing.

Between the agents from the Federal Reserve many of the key players in the economic meltdown are all accounted for. On top of everything above, Larry Summers, under Bill Clinton, played a key role in repealing the Glass-Steagall Act, which was set up after the first Great Depression to prevent it from happening again. He also helped deregulate derivatives, for which there is now a one quadrillion dollar bubble. After the modern collapse had already begun, Obama made him a top level adviser.

The Federal Reserve was the centerpiece of the housing bubble, as well as in serving as the vehicle to enable Congress to commit runaway spending that involves endless wars and the AGI Manhattan Project. In the meltdown aftermath, Obama moved immediately to hand the bankster monolith even more power, and the Congress banished Ron Paul’s legislation that would have given the Congress for the first time the ability to audit the Federal Reserve to bring to light their deeds.

These players are amongst those at the forefront of setting up a total plutocracy. In a plutocracy the wealthy rule everything, as described by an infamous leaked Citigroup memo.

The mentality of the classical elitist must be discussed. They tend to be Social Darwinists, who apply Darwinist theory to sociology. In their view it’s their divine role to dominate those beneath them, at the top of the food chain as the fittest to survive. This class of elites are their own social group, much like how most ordinary people identify themselves with race, political party, music scene, and so on. This social group adherence transcends the everyday social group affiliations the rest of us know, and elitist propaganda has us all wanting to identify with them to subconsciously justify their types of actions.

So we’re in the middle of a collapse that by all measures looks deliberate, that was caused by private stock holders, who made unfathomable amounts of cash on the ways up and down, and were handed trillions of unaccountable dollars in “bailout” money in the aftermath. Despite all of this, there’s still this push for a near-trillion dollar military budget (in the US alone), along with a global government based on a multi-trillions dollar global carbon tax, and even a mandatory “health care” obscenity that might cost trillions overall, yet somehow we’re not to come to the conclusion that there’s a total economic world war being waged against us?

Of course, to propose there’s a deliberate war, there has to be a “why” they would do it. The simple answers of “greed” or “power” are lackluster to address the scale we’re enduring. They believe they’ll become “gods” with indefinite lifespans of hundreds or even thousands of years, and to speed up the process they’re carrying out a full scale 21st Century Manhattan Project: The AGI Manhattan Project.

Ignorance Is Futile:

Just one of DARPA’s many AI programs cost taxpayers $150M. Now basically considered a success, SRI who built “Siri” has now sold it to Apple for up to $250M. In effect, we’ve all paid $1 to help build a Skynet prototype. Since I don’t agree with this type of research, for many reasons, I want my tax refund.

Siri is the product of DARPA’s “PAL” program, which stands for Personal Assistant that Learns, or Perceptive Assistant that Learns, Cognitive Assistant that Learns (CALO), or even Reflective Agents with Distributed Adapted Reasoning (RADAR), depending on which DARPA person you talk to. Here’s DARPA’s “PAL” promo video:

They’ve in effect completed the program:

The software, which learns by interacting with and being advised by its users, will handle a broad range of interrelated decision-making tasks that have in the past been resistant to automation. A CALO will have the capability to engage in and lead routine tasks, and to assist when the unexpected happens. To focus the research on real problems and ensure the software meets requirements such as privacy, security, and trust, the CALO project researchers themselves are using the technology during its development.

Venture Beat just detailed article on the transaction. Along with telling people “you want the virtual assistant to be as smart as someone talking to you on the phone and doing Google searches to answer your questions”, they also mentioned some important details:

Curt Carlson, the president and chief executive of SRI International, is very excited about the Siri intelligent agent technology that his organization sold to Apple in April for a rumored $150 – $250 million. He expects it will show up in future iPhones, but he also believes that SRI’s additional technologies from virtual assistant research will become part of even more rich applications in the future.

SRI was spun out of Stanford University more than 60 years ago to commercialize research. First named Stanford Research Institute and later renamed SRI International, it became independent from Stanford University in 1970 and now has more than 2,200 researchers working on things such as the cool artificial intelligence, speech recognition, natural language processing, location information, and agent technology that is part of Siri.

Siri, spun out of SRI 18 months ago, is a virtual personal assistant technology. Its first application launched in February as a free iPhone app that lets you perform tasks such as making dinner reservations by speaking into your phone and letting a virtual assistant do the rest.

In 2003, SRI got a $150 million grant to start CALO — the Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes — to develop virtual assistant technology over five years. The effort included 25 world class partners and it incubated ideas from government and commercial researchers.


One of the projects that the military is interested in is the Command Post for the Future. It is an assistant for generals in a command post that helps make decisions about how to fight wars or skirmishes.


Commercialization of ideas started four or five years ago under the lead of Norman Winarsky, vice president of ventures, licensing and strategic programs at SRI. In that process, SRI takes its ideas and finds an entrepreneur in residence to make the idea into a startup. If they can figure out a big market opportunity and a compelling business model, they launch it. That’s what happened with Siri. Upon being spun out, Siri got another $24 million from Menlo Ventures and Morgenthaler Ventures.

But Siri isn’t the end of SRI’s research. It is just one part of it. Another startup using the SRI technology is Chattertrap, a Menlo Park, Calif.-based startup that will apply the personal assistant concept to online content. The idea is to create a personal information service by figuring out what kind of news you like and delivering a personalized newspaper to you.

In 2007 WIRED Danger Room interviewed Tony Tether, then DARPA chief, and he covered both PAL and CPOF:

NS: Do you know of anything that Darpa’s working on right now that’s really game changing?

TT: Yes — our cognitive program. The cognitive program’s whole purpose in life is really to increase the tooth-to-tail ratio [military-speak for the number of combat troops to the number of support troops].

… Our cognitive program’s whole aim is to have a computer “learn you,” as opposed to you having to learn the computer. We’ve got the technology to the point where we can now apply it in Iraq to a system that we also developed called CPOF, Command Post of the Future. It is a distributed command and control system.

NS: I mean, I don’t have to tell you that people have been promising cognitive computers [since..]

TT: Well, a lot of time has passed. … Since the ’90s to now, our ability to create algorithms that can reason — can more abstractly reason — about a problem and come up with answers, and also remember what they did using Bayesian techniques and changing values, has really advanced. I mean, it tremendously advanced in the past — from the ’90s to, say, the early 2000s. At the same time, computers became more powerful. We’re on the verge of having computers with densities approaching a monkey’s brain, and it won’t be long before we’ll have a computer with the density of transistors, or equivalent to neurons and almost human. What we’re missing is the architecture. So it seemed like it was time. We had great advances in algorithms for reasoning and in algorithms that learned in general. At the same time, the computers, the actual intrinsic hardware, was really approaching the density of a human brain. And so it seemed like it was time to try again. We’ve had some great success. This cognitive program I told you about is actually showing that it is learning, and it is learning in a very difficult environment. This is the program Stanford Research runs for us.

NS: Which program is this?

TT: It’s PAL [Perceptive Assistant that Learns]. And we have other related programs. One major research issue has to do with learning. If you and I learn something, like baseball, and then we go play another sport, say golf, we somehow transfer that –?? we are able to transfer some of what we learned in baseball to golf. That’s what makes humans very resilient and flexible. We have some research programs trying to come up with the same technique –?? that if you had something tackle a problem and then gave it another problem, it would do better on that second problem than if it had not had the previous experience.

PAL & CPOF are but 2 AI and Strong AI (AGI) programs DARPA is working on. In 2006, they had two offices that dealt with AI type research. IPTO dealt with “cognitive” programs, while iXo delt with “exploitative” surveillance type programs. The iXo section of the DARPA website had an animated interactive feature, for a time. I just so happened to video capture the entire thing. About 9 months later I noticed they had removed the interactive section, and immediately began work on a new video with that interface as the framework. From there I used all quotes from DARPA and related military documents, and all animations and graphics from the same sources along with the defense contractors doing the work.

I titled it “DARPA’s iXo AI Control Grid: The Official Version”, as it technically is official, being sourced entirely from their own words and displays.

See the film here, if you haven’t already.

What sucks is by about a year later I noticed that they had merged the iXo office into the IPTO office, which kind of ‘debunked’ my title as iXo was no longer a part of the website.

So at that point the IPTO office had all of their AI programs under one banner.

Today AI programs have spilled out of the IPTO office, and are now found across most of their other 5 offices. Considering that Obama made Zachary Lemnios DoD Director of Defense Research & Engineering, which makes him the boos of all DoD sciece R&D.  Zack is a major AI pioneer, and former Deputy Director of DARPA’s IPTO office.

AI, including Strong AI,  is quite literally the overarching agenda in Obama’s Pentagon, and the $150 million spent on the Siri project is only the tip of the budget iceberg. I’m working on a massive “AGI Manhattan Project” post that details every facet, and with that I intend to finish a film project I started several years ago now.

‘Skynet’ is an easy to use popular culture reference. The thing is, what they’re trying to build, makes Skynet look like played out Sega 8-bit.

Ignorance Is Futile:

The very notion of being able to transform ones self into something like a cyborg inherently appeals to concepts of individual liberty. Misguided transhumanists typically attempt to utilize Libertarian philosophy to justify their goals, but in actuality they instead engage in rationalization with false notions of liberty.

Libertarian philosophy is arguably the height of understanding of freedom and liberty. Naturally, most transhumanists openly embrace Libertarianism and typically use its concepts as the argument for their ambitions to become living gods. It would seem to make sense, on the surface.

If you want to augment yourself into a ‘something better’ than ordinary humans, shouldn’t that be ones right? Not if you truly understand the core of libertarian philosophy. The primary principle is that you can do what you want with yourself or your own property… just so long as it doesn’t harm other persons or their property.

That’s libertarianism in a nutshell. The problem with transhumanists, in a nutshell, is that it seems inherent that either they haven’t thought their ambitions all the way through, or they simply don’t care what happens to others as a result of their agenda. For celebrities such as Ray Kurzweil (who attempt to champion Libertarianism), they know full well the implications.

Kurzweil, and many others such as Kevin Warwick (the “first human cyborg”) openly admit that when their goals of AGI come become reality, the only option will be to merge with the technology both to have any chance of participating with the new society and as the only insurance to not be eventually terminated by the machine. (Why would it kill you if you were part of it?)

Few prominent transhumanists openly lament the idea of Strong AI (AGI), as its the ultimate mechanism to kickstart the NBIC utopia. The only example I can think of is I saw Max Moore talk about it being bad if machine AGI a hard take-off and reduced humans to the significance of ants. But you can bet Moore will be one of the first in line to get the brain implants and the rest involved in the merging with the machine.

It’s a matter of join us, change yourself, or face elimination in one shape or another. The new society wouldn’t even have to kill you outright. When the new society of transhumans (and eventually posthumans) are both physically and mentally superior than the mere humans, one would have little chance in competing with these superhumans economically or academically. If we’re given no choice other than to assimilate or live in poverty, then it should be obvious that that harm is being done to people and even their property when they can no longer afford a home they might have gotten a loan for several years ago before the Great Unleveling event.

This new frontier of “freedom” is hardly anything new in human history. It’s akin to imperialism, and is deeply Social Darwinistic. Years ago I wrote a lengthy piece on the freedom we hear politicians and other talking heads discuss on TV. Like on 9/11, when Bush said “Freedom itself was attacked”, in reference to the “freedom” to dominate the world and occupy the Middle East (which its proven to be what motivates suicide terrorism). Naturally, elitists love ‘freedom’. The more ‘freedom’ the better, and what better way to maximize your own ‘freedom’ than to interfere with and soak up the prosperity of others.

The perversion of freedom is the freedom to do what you want, despite the consequences that might occur to others freedoms. This is in gross conflict with libertarian philosophy. Don’t believe me, take it from Michael Badnarik, the 2004 Libertarian Party presidential candidate, who repeats this concept over and over in his “Constitution Class”.

Before we shift gears, another key facet of transhumanism is radical life extension. It might be worthwhile in this narrative to mention the fact that the world cannot handle billions of humans getting indefinite lifespans, whom will bear children who will then have indefinite lifespans, ad infinitum. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a staunch critic of Malthusian philosophy, but the earth inherently must have a limit to its actual carrying capacity. Whatever that might be, which is always under-exaggerated by the sorts of elitist / Social Darwinist types who trumpet Malthusian theory, human population would in this case explode beyond belief if there were open access to life extension.

Therefore, by extension, this facet of transhumanism promises to harm potential future generations of the human experience as the smartest immediate solution to a true population crisis would be to drastically limit population growth (Zero Population Growth). It’s no wonder we see all the hysteria propagated by the Big 5 Media about overpopulation and the environment. Looking back, this isn’t about humanity. It’s about transhumanity, which doesn’t much appear to care about current humans, therefore why would it care about future humans?

Moving on, another staunch element of libertarianism is the idea of small government. Libertarians generally prefer the smallest government possible, often with its role being reduced as much as possible other than just enough to enforce the Rule of Law (which would be mostly concerned with keeping people from hurting others). Kurzweil and friends, such as Ben Goertzal, are strong advocates of government coordinated initiatives bent on rapid technological progress in pursuit of their efforts. So in truth, they want maximum government, not limited government.

Then we have the Privacy Crisis. Libertarians consider privacy a basic right (i.e. the freedom of privacy). Trannys scoff at privacy. Many even argue that we should all have our personal DNA code openly available on the Internet, searchable on Google, with little software applets that allow people to pull up others DNA and search through it for unfavorable characteristics (that may be based on pseudoscience). In general, in the Utopian vision of future earth would have billions upon billions of ‘ubiquitous’ computers (i.e. smart dust) blanketed all over the earth monitoring every aspect of earths resources and humans private lives, by Strong AI computers and anyone whose minds are plugged into the system, forever. This transhumanist ideal of ‘heaven on earth’ is akin to a libertarians ‘hell on earth’.

Libertarians are about the staunchest critics of taxes you could ever hope to find. You couldn’t hope to find a libertarian type who wasn’t opposed to taxes. Wealth (income) represents property, and taxes means having your property taken away from you and potentially being put towards things you don’t wish to take part in. For instance, as a libertarian minded person, they are currently taxing me and using the money for transhumanist related projects that I don’t agree with. They’re stealing peoples property in pursuit of everything this commentary is against. The contradiction between libertarianism and transhumanism drips from this paragraph. It’s sloppy wet, as in promoting the idea of the government stepping in to advance technological progress (which apparently isn’t good enough as it is), you’re also promoting the idea of the government stealing property in order to do it.

Pursue your own selfish desires if you want, as I am in writing this piece. But don’t think about harming myself or my property, as all I’ve stolen from you is your time. Though I personally consider time as more valuable than Federal Reserve Notes, you’ve had the choice of whether or not to read this far. Isn’t libertarianism grand? It would if we had enough of it in this system. We’d all be more wealthy for one thing, but if you had transhumanism we all wouldn’t be which means many of us would be less free to do the things we want while having less property. Never mind the “third world” (the vast majority of Earth’s population). Since most of us wouldn’t even be able to afford the higher degrees of transhumanism as it is, this wouldn’t harm them would it?

Ignorance Is Futile Exclusive:

I was just doing a casual view of the governor candidates for here in Florida, clicked on Michael E. Arth’s Wikipedia page, and to my own amazement I happened across this:

UNICE is an acronym for Universal Network of Intelligent Conscious Entities, a term coined by artist and futurist Michael E. Arth in the 1990s to describe a new form of intelligent life that he and many others theorize will soon emerge on Earth from a hive-like interaction of computers, humans, and future forms of the Internet. Arth believes that a local form of UNICE will envelope Earth and then, unbounded by biological substrate, will propagate outward into the wider universe. If there is an existing, self-aware Cosmic Internet beyond this planet, our local UNICE could eventually join up with and merge with the greater UNICE. The acronym EUNICE is sometimes used to differentiate Earth’s Universal Network of Intelligent Conscious Entities from a truly universal UNICE.

Thus, the term UNICE refers to what will probably happen on Earth and what will or perhaps has already happened throughout the universe or multiverse. UNICE is what will result from accelerating technological change that appears to be leading to a computational or technological singularity. The term Singularity, usually capitalized to differentiate it from a black hole or mathematical singularity, has been described by Ray Kurzweil as “technological change so rapid and profound it represents a rupture in the fabric of human history”. Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns, a description and prediction about this accelerating pace of technological change, is a further elaboration of Moore’s law.
www.unice.info…

He wrote that, and more. To no surprise, I didn’t notice “UNICE” mentioned over at his campaign site.

Looking through his art section over at his personal website, I couldn’t help but notice this image:

That sure does seem to echo the official image of classical Eugenics:

If you’re not familiar with Eugenics, it should be well worth your time to read up on this largely unknown history. Eugenics is the forebear of modern day Transhumanism, which is in effect what Michael E. Arth is calling for in his UNICE website. This video by TransAlchemy is a great example of this area of discussion:

Another noteworthy piece of art from E. Arth’s site is this:

The unfinished pyramid is an ancient occult / masonic symbolism. I first started pointing out the parallels between occultism and transhumanism back in early 2005, and used the unfinished pyramid as a key example. Here are some quotes I gathered for this back in early 2006:

“This – the evolution of man into superman – was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries, and the real purpose of modern Masonry is not the social and charitable purposes to which so much attention is paid, but the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality. And this is a definite science, a royal art, which it is possible for each of us to put into practice; whilst to join the Craft for any other purpose than to study and pursue this science is to misunderstand its meaning.” -WL Wilmhurst, The Meaning of Masonry, page47

“The triangle also represents the capstone of the unfinished pyramid and reminds the Mason of the immortality of the soul and that in eternity he will complete the capstone of his earthly labors according to the designs on the trestle-board of the Supreme Architect of the Universe. The unfinished pyramid cannot fail to remind him of the unfinished condition of the Temple when tragedy struck down its Masters architect.” -James Davis Carter, Masonry in US History – Background, History and Influence to 1846, The Committee on Masonic Education and Service for the Grand Lodge of Texas A.F.and A. M., Waco, 1955, Ch. 4.

Here’s another off the web:

The unfinished Pyramid can be regarded as a symbol of our unfinished evolution. http://atlantisonline.smfforfree2.com/index.php/topic,19497.15.html

Of course this is the image on the back of our money:

What originally got me thinking of all this back in those days was the symbolism I noticed in a massive 482 page policy document put out by the Department of Commerce and the National Science Foundation, titled “Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance“. This document was product of a (George W. Bush) White House sponsored conference that involved virtually every department of government & military, that even had Newt Gingrich as the main event keynote speaker.

And some more unfinished pyramid quotes:

“The Great Seal is the signature of this exalted body [a secret body existing in Europe] – unseen and for the most part unknown – and the unfinished pyramid upon its reverse side is a trestle board setting forth the task to the accomplishment of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception.” – Manley P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

“It is likely that it was, in fact, inspired by the Masons. And Benjamin Franklin, who spearheaded the design of the Great Seal, was a Mason. So Roosevelt, who lifted the Great Seal’s image from obscurity when he placed it on the back of the $1 bill in 1935.” www.businessweek.com…

“The unfinished pyramid is generally taken as refering to the country as a work-in-progress, overseen by God.” www.biblewheel.com…

“The Great Seal is the signature of this exalted body – unseen and for the most part unknown – and the unfinished pyramid upon its reverse side is a trestleboard setting forth symbolically the task to the accomplishment of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception.” www.masoncode.com…

“On the reverse of our nation’s Great Seal is an unfinished pyramid to represent human society itself, imperfect and incomplete. Above floats the symbol of the esoteric orders, the radiant triangle with its all-seeing eye. … There is only one possible origin for these symbols, and that is the secret societies which came to this country 150 years before the Revolutionary War. … There can be no question that the great seal was directly inspired by these orders of the human Quest, and that it set forth the purpose for this nation. …” — Manly P. Hall 33rd Degree, The Secret Destiny of America, pp. 175 and 181.

Many New Age followers refer to the union of Earth and nature as Gaia. Further, many speak of the Gaiamind, the Earth mind collective oneness, a sort of one world religion collective Earth consciousness. And then we have MICHAEL E. ARTH, calling for just that via technology.
