Transhumanism: A Vision of a Bright Future—or a Frightening Dystopia?

“Transhumanism is the next logical step in the evolution of humankind, and it is the existential solution to the long-term survival of the human race.”

Newton Lee


Transhumanism is a loosely defined worldwide philosophical movement that aims to fundamentally transform the human condition through the use of technologies that significantly enhance our intellectual, physical, and psychological capabilities. It seeks to realize a posthuman condition. Essentially, this movement is about replacing the organic consciousness of humans with artificially intelligent hybrids or cyborgs.

English writer Aldous Huxley describes a transhumanist dystopia in his 1932 novel “Brave New World.” In the novel, humanity is kept tranquil in a conformist totalitarian society through the use of psychological conditioning, promiscuous sexuality, biotech, and the opiate drug “soma.”

The term “transhumanism” first gained significant notoriety when used by Aldous Huxley’s brother Julian Huxley, a noted eugenicist and evolutionary biologist. Julian Huxley used the term in a lecture he delivered in Washington, D.C. entitled “Knowledge, Morality, and Destiny.”

He described his philosophy as “the idea of humanity attempting to overcome its limitations and to arrive at fuller fruition.” Huxley was also the first director-general of UNESCO and a founder of the World Wildlife Fund.

In his book “New Bottles for New Wine,” Huxley wrote the following about transhumanism:

“I believe in transhumanism: once there are enough people who can truly say that, the human species will be on the threshold of a new kind of existence, as different from ours as ours is from that of Peking man. It will at last be consciously fulfilling its real destiny.”

Transhumanist themes have also shown up in many films over the years, and certainly not by accident, considering how the parasite class loves to mock the general public by hiding the truth—or in this case, their future plans—in plain sight. Stanley Kubrick’s classic “2001: A Space Odyssey” was one of the earliest films to showcase transhumanist themes. It is arguably one of the most influential movies of all time.

A more recent example was “Ex Machina,” which is about a computer programmer named Caleb Smith who tries to determine the capabilities and consciousness of a robot named Ava. However, it turns out that Ava is far more intelligent and self-aware than Smith imagined.

One of the most well-known examples, of course, is the 1999 sci-fi action thriller “The Matrix.” It depicts a dystopian future in which intelligent machines have enslaved humanity within a simulated reality.

Transhumanism has also been featured in various TV shows. The show “Humans,” for example, explores the themes of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. Premiering in 2015, it features anthropomorphic robots known as “synths.”

The transhumanist movement has accelerated rapidly over the past two decades. Let’s go through a brief chronology of key events in transhumanism, including some chronicled by H+Pedia (which is essentially the Wikipedia for transhumanism), before exploring other aspects of the movement.

While not comprehensive by any means, the above chronology should at least give you an idea of how rapidly the transhumanist movement has been accelerating over the past two decades—and it’s only gaining momentum, particularly after the onset of the COVID-19 “pandemic.” But what other entities are involved in this rapid push towards a transhumanist dystopia?

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)

Let’s start with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an Arlington, Virginia-based agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. Formed in 1958, DARPA is responsible for the development of new military technology and boasts an annual budget of $3.2 billion.

Examining the various DARPA projects over the past few years is likely to make your skin crawl.

  • In April 2013, the Obama White House announced the BRAIN initiative, supported by DARPA.
  • A Singularity Hub article from 2014 describes DARPA’s role in nanotechnology, which is a huge component of the elites’ transhumanist endgame.
  • As early as 2014, DARPA announced its plan to build synthetic soldiers.
  • An insightful Gaia article describes five of DARPA’s more sinister programs, along with a “potentially benevolent outcome” for each.
  • In 2018, DARPA announced a new program called PREPARE, “with the goal to change human genetics to defend against specific threats.”
  • A recent piece from Bio-IT World describes DARPA’s collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) towards “advancing the development of organ-on-a-chip technology and [launching] the national tissue chips programs.” This partnership began in 2012.
This is by no means a rigorous breakdown of DARPA, but I think you get the idea. Make no mistake about it: This federal agency is a satanic organization running sinister high-tech programs aimed at enslaving and controlling the American population in a dystopian, technocratic society.

Moving from one satanic organization to another, let’s take a look at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Founded in 1887 and headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, NIH is the primary U.S. government agency in charge of biomedical and public health research and possesses a massive 2019 budget of $39 billion.

Needless to say, “biomedical and public health research” is just benign terminology used to hide the nefarious programs that the NIH runs, which are obviously not in the best interests of the American people. Just as with DARPA, its end game appears to be transhumanism. The NIH is also involved in the aforementioned BRAIN initiative, as described on its website. Once again, this repulsive organization uses friendly wording to hide the truly sinister nature of its supposedly “benevolent” programs.

The NIH is also deeply involved in nanotechnology, having established the NIH Nano Task Force in 2006. It’s also worth noting that the NIH invests over $200 million annually in nanotechnology research. Not good, especially considering transhumanists’ deep interest in nanotechnology, as described by the website Human Paragon:

“The implications are radical and there’s hardly another science or technology that transhumanists care about that won’t be influenced by nanotechnology some day.”

Obviously, it’s much more sinister than that, as described by a paper from the International Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Journal entitled “The nanomafia: nanotechnology’s global network of organized crime.” Many of us are already contaminated with nanoparticles, aka smart dust, from chemtrails, vaccines, and food, among other mechanisms.

Other Factors

A chilling paper entitled “Neural Dust: An Ultrasonic, Low Power Solution for Chronic Brain-Machine Interfaces,” describes highly invasive nanotechnology known as “neural dust” that could be sprinkled just about anywhere—including food, air, and water—and stealthily taken up into a person’s body without their knowledge.

This is essentially what chemtrails are, which the government regularly sprays into the atmosphere under the guise of “geoengineering.” Chemtrails, which include nanosized aluminum compounds, have severe effects on the brain. Nanoparticles of aluminum are extremely inflammatory and easily penetrate the brain through various routes, such as the blood and olfactory nerves. Dr. Russell L. Blaylock has this to say about the hazards of chemtrails:

“The intranasal route of exposure makes spraying of massive amounts of nanoaluminum into the skies especially hazardous, as it will be inhaled by people of all ages, including babies and small children for many hours. We know that older people have the greatest reaction to this airborne aluminum. Because of the nanosizing of the aluminum particles being used, home filtering system will not remove the aluminum, thus prolonging exposure, even indoors.”

Microchipping is also a big part of the transhumanist agenda, masquerading as “personal enhancement.” This can also be done secretly through forced vaccinations, which raises suspicion with regard to the widespread COVID-19 vaccine mandates being implemented all around the world.

Of course, we also need to be concerned about 5G, which is integral to the elites’ transhumanist and depopulation agendas. A detailed website from Israeli journalist Shoshi Herscu details the massive risks associated with 5G, along with its connection to AI and transhumanism. Additionally, Global Research provides an excellent overview of the dangers of 5G. They state the following:

“Ultimately, 5G is part of the NWO agenda to set up a giant, inescapable command and control grid that eliminates all privacy and allows the manipulators to surveil every single person on the planet all the time. If there was ever a time for activists to step up in the name of freedom, truth, health, privacy and sovereignty, now is the time.”

Also part of the plan is to have 20,000 satellites blanket the earth with 5G radiation, as detailed by Technocracy News. 12,000 of these satellites were provided by SpaceX alone. Of course, to a psychopathic clown such as Google employee Ray Kurzweil, all of this is a dream come true. He predicts that nanobots will plug our brains into the web by the 2030s. Yikes.

In fact, it might even happen sooner than that, unless humanity collectively wakes up. These sick elites and their puppets aren’t just trying to connect the human mind to AI—they’re trying to synthesize a completely different human being.

This is a big reason why the elites have been pushing transgenderism—it plays right into their transhumanist agenda. Ultimately, they seek to create genderless human beings through the use of AI and human augmentation.

Jeffrey Epstein, the deceased wealthy financier and sex trafficker, was also a noted transhumanist and eugenicist who “hoped to seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating women at his vast New Mexico ranch.” He had connections to many prominent scientists, including some affiliated with Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

An eye-opening piece from National Review, entitled “Jeffrey Epstein, a Narcissistic Transhumanist,” sheds some light on these connections. It also highlights the role that top universities and their faculty are playing in the transhumanist agenda.

According to the article, transhumanism has become an “elite phenomenon,” with hundreds of millions of dollars going into transhumanist research. The author elaborates further:

“Apparently, Epstein was as good at insinuating himself into the elite community of scientists — such as Steven Hawking, and top researchers and science advocates — as he was politicians and cultural leaders…And good grief, he wanted to ‘seed his DNA’ throughout the world population — definitely not the usual transhumanist dream…”

Numerous patents have been filed that relate directly to transhumanism and AI. The below chart from Statista highlights the companies with the most AI patents as of 2018. Notice the surge in AI-related patents filed per year over the decade from 2008-2018. This is a key indicator that activity in this field is accelerating rapidly.

While there are surely practical and benevolent uses for AI technology, particularly for medical applications, it’s important to keep in mind who is largely guiding the development of such technology—the ruling class. They certainly do not have our best interests in mind.

We as a species are careening towards the singularity, and once we hit that point there is no turning back. Our world as we know it will never be the same—it will more than likely resemble a dystopian reality straight out of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” or a film like “The Matrix.”

At that point, our collective society will look like a horror show of epic proportions—exponentially worse than anything we have right now. Humanity will be trapped inside a technocratic New World Order matrix with seemingly no way out.

We cannot allow these wealthy psychopaths to destroy our identities, our personalities, our consciousness, and our souls for their own selfish pleasure and gain—that is simply unacceptable. Consider yourself warned.
