Joe Allen is a regular contributor on Steve Bannon’s War Room.
He is highly knowledgable on transhumanism and what it is and how it’s affecting humanity.
Transhumanism is a philosophical and intellectual movement that explores the use of technology to enhance human capabilities and transcend the limitations of the human condition. It envisions a future where advancements in science, medicine and technology can be harnessed to enhance physical, cognitive and emotional abilities, as well as to extend human lifespan.
Transhumanists believe in using these enhancements to improve the overall well-being and quality of life for individuals and society as a whole. This can include areas such as genetic engineering, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence and cybernetics.
The ultimate goal of transhumanism, we are told, is to push the boundaries of human potential, opening up new possibilities for personal growth, human evolution, and even the exploration of post-human states of existence. It is a forward-thinking movement that raises ethical, social, and philosophical questions about the implications of these advancements.
Transhumanist advances don’t suddenly occur. It’s a gradual process that has been around for a long time.
For example, brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are systems that allow direct communication between the brain and external devices. They can be used to control prosthetic limbs, assistive technology, or even enable telepathic communication in the future.
Artificial organs, such as an artificial heart or lung, are created to replace or enhance the function of natural organs. These technologies can greatly improve the quality of life and extend the lifespan of individuals with organ failure. To some degree, a conventional heart transplant, using another person’s heart, is transhumanist because it involves an external organ being inserted with the use of technology; the patient ends up with a heart that is not his own.
Oscar Pistorius is a former South African sprint runner who gained international recognition for competing in both able-bodied and Paralympic athletics. He was born with a congenital condition known as fibular hemimelia, which resulted in the amputation of both his lower legs when he was 11 months old. Oscar became known for his use of prosthetic limbs called “blades” that allowed him to run competitively; they are carbon fiber prosthetic devices that replicate the function of lower legs and feet.
Of course, there is also a very dark side to transhumanism.
