Human “cyborgs” Spiritual Transformation and the 2045 Global Future

What does religion and “human cyborgs” have to do with Spiritual Transformation on a global scale?

In New York City, the second international Global Future 2045 congress will converge at the Lincoln Center to discuss a new evolutionary strategy for humanity, merging two revolutions in the spiritual and science/technology realms.

The event on June 15th – 16th is a gathering of the world’s leading specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems, who will launch a brand new vision for the “spiritual transformation of humanity.” This is quite possibly tScreen shot 2013-05-26 at 6.53.55 PMhe most heart-stopping convergence I’ve heard yet. And when I say heart-stopping, I mean in the literal sense. There is a group of international scientists and spiritual/religious leaders converging to talk about how we could all be immortal by 2045.

This congress will introduce the world to its Avatar mega-project, which will enable a gradual transition from our biological bodies to an increasingly advanced artificial carrier of the human self. That’s right. Your spiritual essence transported into a robot. Why? Because humankind is on the verge of collapse, and we can either regress into the dark ages, or evolve into a new civilization, requiring the deepest social and spiritual transformation. “We believe this is the only way to overcome existing crises,” says it’s GF2045 website:

The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality. We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society. SOURCE

These scientists say we will soon have the technology to develop unimaginable human cognitive abilities, create humanoid robots and cyborgs, and with the help of nanotechnology, transfer our personalities into robots. Away from the murder of nature and physical death, forward to the realm of infinite freedom. The race for immortality starts, but it all requires new philosophy, spirituality and ideology to keep us from going astray, says the promotional video:

The first GF2045 congress took place in Moscow in February 2012, organized by the strategic social movement Russia 2045, a.k.a The 2045 Initiative. Its main goal was a discussion of global threats and opportunities arising from the development of new technologies. Some 1,500 participants took part, with 50 speakers from countries around the world, including the USA, the Netherlands and Australia.

Neohumanity

Imagine in 20 more years discovering a new way to take the brain and transplant into an avatar. Yes, that’s what they’re calling it: an avatar. By 2025, this avatar will completely transmit all of our senses through nanotechnological organs, and by 2040 we can completely transfer our personalities into the “carrier.”

Here is the timeline:

All of this, according to the website, requires drastic changes in social structure. The main goal for neohumanity in 2045 will be spiritual transformation and self improvement. War and violence will be unacceptable.

World Core Curriculum: How education fits in

Screen shot 2013-05-26 at 6.26.02 PMThis futuristic planning began in the late sixties, when a group called the International Institute for Sustainable Development began pointing to a radical shift emphasizing “global thinking” and “planetary norms” for the way we educate our young people. Follow me here: According to the IISD literature, “the task of education for the immediate future is to assist in activating an ethic of planetary sensitivity… We must pass from a human-centered to an earth-centered sense of reality and value.”

This “global-shift role” for general education is a foundational platform for UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Back in 1968, UNESCO, along with The Twentieth Century Fund (now called The Century Foundation) and the Ford Foundation, helped start a new educational body located in Geneva, Switzerland; the International Baccalaureate Organization, or IBO. The IBO curriculum has, for over 35 years, emphasized that its students broaden their understanding of various cultures, languages, and points of view.

In other words, political correctness and tolerance on an international scale was the new way to peace. It starts locally and goes globally. (“Glocal.”) The IBO soon adopted and advanced the Earth Charter – an earth-centered declaration that venerates global political-ethical-moral and spiritual unification.

A former high-ranking UN official, Robert Muller, received the UNESCO Peace Education Prize for his work in developing a World Core Curriculum. He writes in his book, New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, that the Earth Charter offers the world a blueprint for a new, spiritual vision of human destiny:

“…humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the “divine,” its transcendence into ever higher forms of life. Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity, as we are about to enter our cosmic age and to become what we were always meant to be: the planet of God.”

Muller’s World Core Curriculum is firmly grounded in New Age concepts of man’s deification and “Earth spirituality.”

“We must manage our globe so as to permit the endless stream of humans admitted to the miracle of life to fulfill their lives physically, mental, morally and spiritually as has never been possible before in our entire evolution. Global education must prepare our children for the coming of an independent… happy planetary age.”

Are you beginning to connect the dots between education, “political correctness,” and our apostate churches leading us into a “unified” religion?  How will you prepare? Will you go on about your life, eating and drinking and marrying, or will you make an effort to study God’s Word and draw close to Him, trusting in His plan and His redemption for those who understand the times we are in and cling to the truth of Christ?More on the summit:

    I'm not gonna like, the tech geek (and in turn the sinner) in me finds this incredibly amazing. But, then my redeemed nature sends me a shock that reminds me just how horrendous this is and how it is completely against the glory of the Lord.

    This is utterly terrifying… I cannot summon the words to describe anymore.

    Thank you for sharing.

    These people have a lot of nerve. They have no fear of God and have become God in their own mind, and will reap his wrath! The arrogance is disgusting.

    All I can say to these kinds of news-reports is "Awake, O Christian, Awake!"

    There are not many Christians awake right now- not many walking in righteousness according to the call of God in holiness. Many slumber and have not prepared themselves spiritually for the things to come!

    Awake, and seek the Lord our God!

    This is truly astounding, thankyou for publishing this information. We have always known the world was moving in this direction, but it all comes together much more quickly than I would ever have envisioned.

    We need to prepare spiritually, and be sure that we know God, that he knows us, and that we will remain steadfast in the days ahead.

    Ray Kurzweill and Peter Diamandis are two awsome individuals who,s vision and contemporary thought are helping us to move away from the useless paradigms and ego centric religious diatribe (Not to mention the patriachial control as if religion has a monopoly on reality'
    We have a brain that was designed to create and create we will.
    Im sure the religious fanatics would not refuse lazer Surgery or Exoskeletons to assist them with thier quality of life if they needed it'
    Keep going Ray and Peter''

      'We have a brain that was designed to create'….How right you are! Our brains were created and designed by God and it is only by His will and design that we are able to create anything at all…even a mere paper clip. Men think they are so smart with all their new technologies, but God just laughs. Next to what He has made, next to the glory of His heavens, next to His perfection in Holiness….. all man's accomplishments are pretty puny at best.

      Ray and Peter…our only hope? Our hope of what? Too live forever on this sin ridden planet? No thank you. Think I'll pass on that. I will keep my hope in Christ and look for that eternal home to come.

      What it all comes down to: Trust in man or trust in Christ…because, despite mans' best efforts to do away with death, it can't be done. The wages of sin is death. Since we are all sinners by nature, no one will escape it. There IS hope of eternal live but only in the cross of Christ.

    I find two things intriguing about this article: its content, and its comments.

    First off, let's walk in the "sinner's shoes" for a moment. From their perspective, what they are aiming for is a solution to the negatives we see in the world: death, violence, disease, etc. The way they see it, their only choice is to fight, and attempt to conquer them, and that's what this project is attempting to do.

    What they believe would happen is that man's technology would eventually merge with him, and from there it would be an exponential rate of improvement to near "science fiction" levels of technology. They (correctly, I think) also fear the consequences of having what we'll call "grand technology" with a violent nature, and so they are scrambling to try and quench that violent nature before it becomes "integrated" into a progression they view as inevitable. They believe that it would basically act as a corruption that would direct humanity and whatever comes from it to something terrible.

    So, arrogance? I don't believe I'd accuse them of arrogance. They're attempting to be pragmatic, but their perception of the world is a lot different from that of someone with a Christ-based world view. If any one of us didn't have the religious world-view that we do, yet still wanted to see improvement in the world, we might very well be striving for the same thing.

    Now for the second thing I found interesting: the comments, as I said.

    To put it bluntly, this project is more than likely to fall flat on its face. They have very broad, high hopes, and very little to stand on. Talk to any psychologist, or specialist in machine/artificial intelligence, and they will tell you exactly how far we are from understanding, let alone "simulating" or "replicating" what we call human consciousness. The words "impossible" and "near infinitely impossible" have been used, and that's just among people who believe consciousness is a factor of our physical brains rather than a soul or spirit.

    Our machines have become grandly more "intelligent" than previous generations. We have reached the point where we can ask natural language questions of a computer, and get a natural language (and usually accurate) response. If you're interested, google up a youtube video of IBM's "WATSON" playing Jeopardy. And now, similar technology is being integrated into even our daily lives. Apple iPhone's Siri, or Microsoft's Cortana, for example.

    But again, any A.I. specialist will tell you that while those systems may be "intelligent" in a technical definition, or even "smart," they are not conscious. Not even close. All we have done is increase the sophistication of input and output. Instead of punching numbers into the calculator, we can say them.

    So, for that little section there, don't fear. They probably won't get anywhere close to even their first goal in their proposed timeline, and I suspect that said timeline was partially proposed by its creators with the hope that they themselves would be able to "take part" in it before expiring, if you get my drift.

    But even that aside, one can decry and accuse and point fingers at these people all one wants, but it isn't going to change anything. Is God in control? Yes? Was the tower of Babel a problem? No? Then if God is calling the shots, nothing is going to happen here that He doesn't allow, and humanity won't be doing anything new. It really doesn't benefit anyone to decry them. If anything, I think Christ would be more interested in how we plan to witness to them than how we plan to call them arrogant hooligans, because what else would any of us be otherwise?

    He who has not sinned can cast the first stone.

    No, I don't find this terrifying. I don't find it scary. I don't find it arrogant. I don't even find it remotely believable. I just see it as an over-ambitious project by a group of people who are trying to make sense of a world that needs fixing. They aren't going to harm anything any further than anyone else ever has, or ever will, and if you believe in Christ and God's sovereign reign, and that God will triumph no matter what, then what humanity does piddling around during its existence on this planet gains a whole new perspective of, "Oh, that's amusing."

    So ignore them and let them "have their fun" and potentially push some interesting technologies, or go witness to them. Those are your choices. If God is in control, He'll take care of the rest.
