Transhumanisme

Que penser du transhumanisme, ce courant philosophique qui clame sa volonté que l’humain ait accès à tout ce qui peut l’ « augmenter » i.e. qu’il ait librement accès aux machines, aux instruments qui pourraient décupler ses facultés physiques et intellectuelles?  Faire de lui une espèce de super héros.  Un surhomme.  Un « cyborg »?

Le transhumanisme, c’est quoi?

Un courant philosophique.  Les adeptes du transhumanisme veulent améliorer la condition humaine par l’augmentation des capacités mentales et physiques des humains. 

Ils considèrent que l’humain est imparfait.  Pour eux, les handicaps, la souffrance, la maladie, le vieillissement, la mort, la reproduction sont indésirables parce qu’ils manifestent un aspect transitoire à la vie.  Ils veulent et prônent l’immortalité.  Ils travaillent à la « construction » d’un humain augmenté qui dépasse les limites naturelles.  Ils œuvrent à la mise en place d’une nouvelle espèce, une nouvelle civilisation.

Ainsi, on développe actuellement des prothèses qui décuplent les possibilités des membres, des yeux, des oreilles, du cerveau, du cœur, etc.  Chez les gens du GAFAM, on travaille à pouvoir directement connecter le cerveau dans un ordinateur et de faire en sorte que le mouvement se fasse autant du cerveau à l’ordi que son contraire.

Comme le dit Alexis Cossette-Trudel, le transhumanisme est un pilier de l’idéologie du mondialisme, des globalistes.  Tout ceci est présenté dans un emballage attrayant; se fait, dit-on, dans le respect de la raison et de l’éthique de la science.  Le but avoué de l’exercice, affirme-t-on, s’inscrit dans la volonté de progrès et de valorisation de l’existence humaine (sic).

Il est altruiste de vouloir inventer une prothèse qui permettra à un individu de remplacer un bras perdu lors d’un accident.  Cependant, comme le dit le biologiste Jacques Testart, il ne faut pas confondre technologie de pointe – qui ne vise qu’à palier un manque – avec les volontés du transhumanisme qui désire augmenter, par une prothèse, les capacités d’un membre.  Dans ce dernier cas, on vise à avoir des performances inédites dans l’espèce humaine.  L’enjeu ultime du transhumanisme en est un de consumérisme :  aller toujours plus vite, devenir plus compétitif, etc.

Robotisation et réduction de la population mondiale

Ainsi, ces prothèses deviennent éventuellement des robots qui prennent la place des humains dans une usine.  On crée ainsi une masse de travailleurs dont on n’a plus besoin pour l’exécution de ces tâches.  Que fait-on alors de ces travailleurs qu’on ne peut reclasser ailleurs?  L’intention de ceux qui ont actuellement le pouvoir, à n’en pas douter, est de « disposer » de cette masse d’individus « inutiles » pour ne garder que ceux et celles aptes à entrer dans le système de production d’un monde idéal pour eux.  C’est ce qui justifie l’actuelle plan de réduction de la population mondiale des Bilderberg.  Le transhumanisme comme nouvelle mouture de ce qu’on appelait naguère l’eugénisme.

Créer un humain correspondant à ses besoins

Le domaine de la reproduction intéresse également les transhumanistes.  Déjà, en Californie, il existe des cliniques où l’on peut choisir son enfant avec les caractéristiques que l’on désire (QI, couleur des cheveux, des yeux, etc.). Actuellement, on est capable de féconder un ovule artificiellement, in vitro.  À l’autre bout du processus, on parvient désormais à maintenir en vie les enfants prématurés après un nombre de semaines de plus en plus retreint de gestation naturelle.  Si bien qu’à l’heure actuelle, on n’a qu’un tout petit pas à franchir pour être en mesure de contrôler complètement le processus de la reproduction et de mettre en marché un utérus artificiel.  Les spécialistes du domaine disent qu’on y est presque.  Et, lorsque ce sera le cas, les laboratoires pourront à loisir créer les individus que les entreprises recherchent.  On n’aura plus besoin de cette humanité imparfaite.  Autre raison de l’éliminer.

Au bout du compte, à qui sert le transhumanisme?

D’une part, avec le transhumanisme, on vise l’immortalité.  D’autre part, on ne cesse de nous rabâcher les oreilles que nous sommes trop d’humains sur Terre.  Qu’est-ce qui se passera lorsque nous tous, et nos enfants, deviendront immortels?  Équation impossible!  Alors, qui profitera du transhumanisme?  À qui s’adresse les « bienfaits » de ces technologies?  Évidemment, pas à tout le monde.  Uniquement à ceux que l’on aura sélectionné pour vivre ici-bas.  Bref, à une élite.  Qui définira cette élite?  Qui a l’argent, le pouvoir … ? 

Le coût actuel de ces technologies est très élevé.  On ne peut les offrir à tout le monde via un système de santé public.  Cette nouvelle technologie ne s’adresse qu’aux plus riches.

Une vision mécaniste de l’humain

La raison.  Voilà bien ce qui caractérise le transhumanisme.  Dans cette idéologie, il n’y a aucune place pour les sentiments.  En fait, la vision de l’humain, de la vie est ici complètement mécaniste.  Elle oblitère totalement l’aspect fondamental de ce qui constitue un humain :  son âme.

La naissance, la souffrance, la mort, la maladie, le vieillissement FONT que nous sommes humains.  Ces épreuves sculptent notre âme, forgent notre personnalité, bâtissent notre courage, nous rendent majestueux, magiques.  Elles donnent un sens à l’existence.  C’est à se demander si les transhumanistes ne fuient pas ces épreuves tout simplement par peur, par couardise.  Bref, par manque de maturité.

Il y a un très grand risque à mettre ces technologies dans les mains de personnes irresponsables.  Parce que la maturité ne vient pas avec le bras qu’on greffe, par exemple.  Elle est pour ainsi dire en option!  Certains individus pourraient se croire invincibles avec un organe augmenté.  Et l’invincibilité pourrait être accompagnée par l’infaillibilité i.e. la croyance que tout ce qu’on fait est bon, respecte le bien.

Par définition, les humains sont immortels!

On ne compte plus maintenant les médecins, psychanalystes, psychologues ou autres spécialistes qui travaillent sur les expériences de mort imminentes (EMI).  Ils en arrivent tous à la conclusion que la conscience ne se trouvent pas dans le cerveau et qu’elle s’éteint lorsque le corps cesse ses activités biologiques.  Au contraire, elle poursuit son chemin, sa vie … dans la plus grande joie!

À cette cohorte de thérapeutes s’ajoute l’expertise de tous ces médiums, homme et femmes, qui, depuis des lunes, font la démonstration qu’il existe une vie hors de la réalité que nous percevons dans notre quotidien.  Après ce que nous appelons la mort, la vie se poursuit dans un autre « monde ».  Alors, à ce moment-là, pour quelle raison vouloir, par un gadget scientifique, devenir immortel?     

L’humain augmenté existe depuis des millénaires

De tout temps, l’humain désire accéder à plus grand que lui.  En fait, c’est carrément une raison de son existence :  grandir, avancer, évoluer.  Le but ultime :  devenir dieu, accéder au divin.  D’autres civilisations que l’occidentale ont élaboré des méthodes pour y parvenir.  Et ce, depuis des millénaires (les transhumanistes, en ce sens, sont très en retard!).  Le « problème » c’est qu’elles ont réussi sans prendre de pilules, sans être obligées de passer sous un bistouri ni avoir besoin d’ordinateur!  Pour accéder à cet état « augmenté », il faut simplement d’abord faire un travail d’introspection (découvrir l’origine de ses désirs, de ses aspirations, résoudre ses complexes, maîtriser ses émotions, ses pulsions, etc.), puis développer une discipline impeccable, touchant autant l’esprit que le corps. 

Éteindre son dialogue intérieur (soliloque) constitue la première étape du travail.

Inde et Mexique

Pour trouver cette méthode, il faut scruter les civilisations asiatiques et amérindiennes (notamment les Yaquis du nord-est du Mexique et du sud-ouest des États-Unis).  

On ne peut réduire le yoga à une simple technique de respiration tout en pratiquant des poses originales!  C’est avant tout un art corporel, plusieurs fois millénaire, qui constitue un « système de développement spirituel et moral s’appliquant directement à la vie quotidienne » (1).  En Inde, certains praticiens du yoga, les fakirs, ont développé différentes facultés et pouvoirs que l’on regroupe généralement sous le vocable : paranormal.  Par facultés, il est entendu la clairvoyance, la science du passé et de l’avenir, la vision microscopique et télescopique, la télépathie, la lecture et l’explication de la pensée d’autrui, la vision surnaturelle et celle des choses lointaine, la connaissance du langage des animaux, la compréhension des langues étrangères, etc.  Par pouvoirs, on entend le contrôle hypnotique, le contrôle extraordinaire des fonctions du corps, la lévitation, le contrôle des « esprits élémentaires », les voyages par l’ « esprit », le déplacement d’objets sans contact, la matérialisation ou la dématérialisation, la guérison à distance ou par imposition des mains.

Toutes ces facultés et pouvoirs ont été observés et recensés depuis des milliers d’années maintenant.  Ce ne sont pas des vues de l’esprit ou des reflets de notre imagination.  Ils constituent des faits!  Au Tibet, certains moines jouissent des mêmes possibilités.

La tradition des sorciers de l’Ancien Mexique a également développé les mêmes qualités.  Toute l’œuvre de Carlos Castaneda en fait la démonstration.  Son maître lui enseignait, entre autres, comment se déplacer au son de l’eau d’une rivière, se transformer en animal, développer son double et se retrouver en deux endroits simultanément (ubiquité), voir les humains comme des œufs lumineux, voyager partout dans le cosmos, percevoir différentes entités, etc.  Les sorciers de cette tradition sont immortels.  Ils ne meurent pas mais se dissolvent simplement dans l’éther, deviennent pure énergie. 

Conclusion

On peut très bien s’ « augmenter » sans avoir recours à des prothèses ou à toute la quincaillerie proposée par les gens du GAFAM.  Il suffit simplement de devenir équilibré mentalement, faire nos actions de façon morale en ayant comme objectif de grandir spirituellement.

Bref, se défaire de nos désirs d’enfant roi.  Devenir simplement mature. 

Vivement l’Événement et l’Ascension!

  1. Hi there, I discovered your web site by the use of Google whilst
    searching for a related subject, your website came up, it appears to be like good.
    I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
    Hi there, just become alert to your blog through Google,
    and located that it is truly informative. I am gonna be careful for brussels.

    I will be grateful in case you continue this in future.
    A lot of other people will be benefited from your writing.
    Cheers!

  2. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  3. I just want to say I am very new to blogs and truly savored you’re web site. More than likely I’m likely to bookmark your website . You amazingly come with superb articles and reviews. Regards for sharing your webpage.

  4. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  5. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  6. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  7. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  14. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of « neighbors » will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune « Social » is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  29. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  35. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

  56. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  60. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of « neighbors » will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune « Social » is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  62. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  63. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  66. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  67. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  72. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  74. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  78. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful
    job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
