Just a reminder to those who follow this blog; I have three online magazines that are growing with articles AND readership. If you are interested in reading them and/or sharing please feel free to do so. You can also subscribe to them. They are called ‘Transhumanism & The Singularity‘, ‘Liberties Lost‘, and ‘Wars & Rumours‘.
Each of these magazines have articles gleaned from the web, written by influential people. They have NO commentary from me at all, they allow you to make up your own mind about each topic. You can subscribe to all three, or just one. But to really benefit from the information contained with any one of these magazines all three are somewhat related as we push towards a changing world because of wars, security, technology etc. So it is recommended that you subscribe to all three for the bigger picture. They are updated more regularly than this blog because I don’t have any input nor do I write a commentary to go along with any article I include in any of these magazines. If I do come across an article that I feel needs more input or even more headlining, I will post it on the ‘living journey’ blog.
Thanks for your support
Many believe Alchemy is merely a false science with the hopes to transmute base metals into gold. In reality, alchemy is an occult metaphor for transforming the human being from our current fallen state into a godlike ascended state. Such desires to discover the elixir of life, known as the philosophers stone, that would give man longevity, and the return to our glorified state of being has been part of mythological lure for centuries. But with the advent of the scientific and technological advancement in our day, these occult dreams founded in the alchemical philosophy are now being fulfilled. The Bible seems to speak of a day when the false prophet, through the lies of Satan would create an Image that will have breath and speak, causing the world to worship the image, and take it’s mark, or else be killed.
Is it possible that these future events spoken about in Revelation 13, are in fact unfolding right before our eyes? Does Artificial Intelligence, a hope for a singularity, and the advent of transhumanism, all play a role in the grand deception that will enslave humanity through the lie that the Mark of the Beast is actually the Philosophers Stone?
What will the not too distant future look like? Will humankind be transformed into something totally different? How is the latest technology pushing us towards a new kind of human? Is this new kind of human light years away? Is this new human for the elite? Are we already evolving and entering a new paradigm (technological Rapture ) where even the catholic Church has become involved? This magazine pulls articles from major players who think outside of the box. It lets you pull all the pieces of the puzzle together. No commentary, just the latest news you won’t hear about on the news yet is so life changing that everyone will be affected in some way. Please share and subscribe to get the full benefits of information… (the complimentary magazine that is a must read is called, “Liberties Lost”, these two must be read together to understand the BIG PICTURE)… http://flip.it/tfVZP
Ever since humans first envisionedrobots, we’ve thought about how to make the machines more like us. Robotscompete against us on game shows, and rendezvous with us in the bedroom (or at least, make virtual sex feel real). But part of being human is sensing the world around us in a particular way, and doing it all at the same time.
This is much more complicated than it seems, as scientists haven’t fully unraveled how we’re able to sense what we do; it’s both our hardware and software that contain codes that are difficult to crack. Still, scientists power through, discovering how their own senses work while crafting artificial versions of them. Here are some of the most valiant attempts to get robots to taste, smell, touch, hear, and see in the most human way possible.
In an interview with RD earlier this year, Mary-Jane Rubenstein discussed how advances in physics are blurring the line between science and theology as physicists come to terms with cosmological concepts that were once the domain of theological speculation, like multiple universes. Something similar can be said of digital technology today: that, having left behind their religious roots, computers are raising issues that circle back into religious territory.
At the extreme end of this phenomenon, we have the concept of artificial intelligence, which strikes immediately at questions about the extent of human power, and whether intelligence is distinct from a soul. Meanwhile, some transhumanists foresee a period when the human mind will be uploaded onto a deathless computer. As religion scholar Robert Geraci has argued, this vision of people shedding their imperfect bodies and achieving immortality sounds an awful lot like the Rapture.
