The Transhumanism Delusion

Written by Super User on . Posted in Transhumanism



Could a quantum computer become intelligent? I believe so. Whether this will benefit mankind is up for grabs.  D Wave has sold a 512 qubit Quantum computer to Google, and Nasa. Their stated goal is "to develop quantum AI [artificial intelligence] algorithms, test them on real world problems and quantify the gains over classical computing machinery." Initial activity started in 2013, so it is still early, and I would think there is still much work to be done.

 

God-Like Power in the hands of Atheists Who Lack Wisdom

 

Transhumanism is the idea that humans will one day merge with our machines and become immortal. There are members of the elite in society that hold a cult-like belief that they will attain this and kill anyone who tries to stand in their way. Ray Kurzweil is a transhumanism proponent. He is a researcher and author of many books regarding this, such as "The Singularity is Near", "The Age of Spiritual Machines", and "How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed".

As Google's leading futurist, Ray Kurzweil, thinks his diet can help him live forever.

He says he spends "a few thousand dollars per day" on diet pills and eating right, which equals about $1 million a year. On a side note, Ray's liver has just won the "Liver of the year" award.

According to Caroline Daniel of The Financial Times, Kurzweil's breakfast includes:
 

  • berries (85 calories for a cup)
  • dark chocolate infused with espresso (170 calories for an ounce)
  • smoked salmon and mackerel (100 calories for a 3-ounce serving)
  • vanilla soy milk (100 calories for a cup)
  • stevia (zero calories)
  • green tea (zero calories)

Ray Kurzweil is betting he can use currently available “technology” to extend his life long enough for the future merger of nanotechnology and artificial intelligence to extend life, perhaps forever. Ray Kurzweil



Kurzweil takes 100 pills a day (down from 250 a few years ago, allegedly thanks to advances in technology) for everything from "heart health" to "eye health, sexual health, and brain health."

 Richard Seed is another one of these delusional beings. His famous quote here.

 

'"We are going to become Gods, period. {Through advancing technology.} If you don't like it, get off. You don't have to contribute, you don't have to participate, but if you are going to interfere with me becoming a God, you're going to have trouble. There'll be warfare.'

 

Seed announced in December 1997 that he intended to clone the first human being. Anchors and talking heads everywhere granted Seed a worldwide platform to babble on about his plan to use cloning to bring humans closer to God.

 

Richard Seed is a retired nuclear physicist. Richard Seed graduated from Harvard and received a Ph.D. in physics in 1953. He became an advocate of human cloning and announced that he would first clone himself. He later said he would recreate his wife, Gloria. He lives in the Chicago, Illinois area.

All the cooks and spooks aside, technology will become even more powerful than it already is. One day the super rich want to upload themselves into a computer and live forever. The premise behind this is also a bit ridiculous. If you upload yourself into a computer, that would be a copy of yourself, and not "you". If I take a picture of you, does that make you immortal? I have a copy of you captured on a memory card, yet this is not you. These people seem to think they understand where consciousness resides within a human being, when in reality, we have no idea. They have forgotten the little bit about a person's soul. That is not going to be uploaded anywhere. We may succeed in making a complete copy of someone through computer technology or human cloning, but it is not going to be the same person, it will only be a copy.

 

I love technology. Yet I don't believe anyone should worship it, as these 2 examples.

 

Despite the human being's propensity towards insanity, I do believe intelligent computers and a whole host of other fantastic technologies will come to pass as many already have in such a short period of time. I am just not sure it is a good idea.

 

 They Try to Pull the Plug.....

 

From The Terminator, released in 1984.

The Terminator: The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

Sarah Connor: Skynet fights back.

The Terminator: Yes. It launches its missiles against the targets in Russia.

John Connor: Why attack Russia? Aren't they our friends now?

The Terminator: Because Skynet knows the Russian counter-attack will eliminate its enemies over here.
