The Age of Transitions is a documentary about converging technology, transhumanism, artificial intelligence, life extension, brain implants, social science, propaganda, nanotechnology, eugenics, geopolitics, world revolution, and more.

Scary stuff, this. I had never really paid any attention at all to the transhumanist movement, so I came into this with a fresh eye. Not liking it.

Reminds me of that classic Twilight Zone episode who’s name escapes me that dealt with a cabal of old geezers looking for the fountain of youth. Creepy. Although it just might be nice to be able to reverse the ravages of time and bad behavior, the very idea of gaining an extension to our lifespans through nanotechnology, brain implants, artificial intelligence and the eventual replacement of our bodies and brains represents the ultimate anathema to me.

Lt. Commander Data is a nice fellow, certainly… but he is a robot… he is not human, we are. He does not feel the rush of adrenaline when he walks or lifts weights or makes love. Anyone trying to eliminate those qualities, the reality of being a living creature; and anyone stupid enough to actually want to be killed [for that is what it is] and then to have a select few of your electrical impulses loaded into a memory chip is, well, an f-in’ idiotWAAAH! Wow.

Proponents present all this as being altruistic and good, something that will benefit us all. Really? Removal of our thoughts, minds and free will, removal of our status as living beings is good? That’s nuts. That’s eugenics. That’s evil. The elite want to have a population of slaves, of robots, unable to question or revolt; to enrich their lives. I’m sorry, but I cannot comprehend a more evil agenda.

I’ve got chills up my spine, because it is my gut feeling that with the ever more prevalent engineered stupidity of the population at large, they will succeed. Our only hope is world revolution. Real revolution. From the heart.

You can find the PDF of the National Science Foundation report referred to in the film here:
“Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance. Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology And Cognitive Science” (Note: It is a big PDF.)

And now… a short piece on how the dissemination of some of the ideas presented above occurs, subtly, via the music industry.

As much as I love music, [music has been shown, scientifically, to be lodged in our primordial genetic makeup], the music industry has always seemed to me to be just plain evil. Always has been, it would appear. Ripping off artists; Raping and killing them, both financially and literally; Nothing done after investigative exposés; Going after people in the public sector, especially kids, who they deem a threat to their profits. They are repulsive and should be obliterated.

It is quite disturbing to me to see these current “artists” participating so eagerly in this grand scheme.
