Transhumanist Singularity – The Ultimate Escapist Agenda

Bare with me, for this may not be an easy read – but we need to crack the code of this much discussed vainglorious chimera.

Which is not to say it doesn’t exist – it does. Yet it exists as a by-product of minds that operate in a sub human vacuum; that have severed their connection with with the normal diversity of emotions – and more particularly – with spirit and soul. Once this type of divorce is sanctioned there can only be deleterious consequences.

The current Transhumanist ethos is deeply atheistic, and as such, has no need to replace God, since it doesn’t believe there is such an entity in the first place. But, ironically, it seemingly does have the need to create an all powerful god of its own design. (more…)

The Future Is the Farmer

At a farmer’s fair in Krakow, South Poland, in early May, I spoke to a Romanian peasant. He was demonstrating clay pot making using a foot treadle to spin the plate upon which the pots were being formed by his deft hands.

I remarked how attractive I found this technology due to its lack of reliance upon any electrical power source. He nodded, saying “No other power required.” The conversation swung to the need to remain independent; independent of state and industry controlled sources of power. Because being dependent upon centralised power, be it energetic or political, means always owing something to someone or something; whereas to be free of such a burden enables one to form strategic relations where one pleases. This form of sharing creates a natural form of interdependence with fellow humans, rather than dependence on governments and corporations. He nodded again.

A colourful troupe of Gorale (Polish mountain farmers) were stamping their feet to the rousing notes of a merry fiddle while weaving a circular pattern through and amongst each other, shouting out in occasional bravura. My Romanian friend was looking-on, his non-treadle foot tapping out the folk song’s rhythms. After a little he turned towards me and said “The farmer is the future.” (more…)

Quit the Matrix – Build the Ark – In Three Steps

Once one has got a reasonable handle on ‘what’s wrong’ the next step involves putting into place something ‘that feels right’.

Not so easy. But essential of course – and in many respects a natural process of follow-through without which, knowing ‘what’s wrong’ gradually fades away. Until there are three sharp knocks on the front door – and then its too late.

The way we progress our conscious awareness is by bringing together, or becoming in some way part of, a group of individuals who wish to share together the experience of putting into place a manner of daily existence which fulfils our creative aspirations and practical needs. Both. If we can’t do that we can’t be fully human. And not being fully human means never realizing who we really are. (more…)
