Guest Post: Technocratic Folly: Why Men Will Never Become Gods
Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market blog,
For those who have studied the musings of the global elites, one primary “theology” rises to the surface, and it is this theology that appears to be the apex motivation in everything that they do. This “religion”, as it were, does not revolve around the worship of any single deity. Though the globalists fancy themselves academics of mythology and secret spiritualisms, in the end, they do not seek to worship a god; rather, they desire to be “worshiped” as “gods”.
This hubris is best exposed in the works of "Technocrats", “Futurists” and “Transhumanists”; a community of eugenics obsessed elites dabbling mostly in scientific fields that claim to only be interested in identifying or predicting “future trends”. In reality, they believe in ENGINEERING future trends. They hold that technological advancement supersedes all other social concerns, and, that “old beliefs” and principles must be constantly discarded to make room for the “new”, the “modern”, the “streamlined”, or the “centralized”, which they arbitrarily deem superior.
For them, the concept of evolution is not limited to biology. They feel that the “survival of the fittest” dogma must also be applied to cultural structures, as well as cultural values.
What proponents of futurist ideals salivate over is a kind of full-spectrum control over their environment, over nature, over genetics, over matter, and over the human mind. Their rationale for this pursuit? They think that they can do it all better than the original design! This assumption is summed up well in the words of Sir Francis Galton, the official founder of the Eugenics movement:
"What nature does blindly, slowly and ruthlessly, man may do providently, quickly, and kindly. As it lies within his power, so it becomes his duty to work in that direction."
Or the pontifications of early transhumanist R.C.W. Ettinger:
“Humanity itself is a disease, of which we must now proceed to cure ourselves…Surely it will be an advantage to be able to ‘turn off’ or ‘tune out’ one’s emotions at will, choosing fully to savor only those that are enjoyable…”
Or the creepy zealotry of futurist Barbara Max Hubbard:
"Out of the full spectrum of human personality, one-fourth is electing to transcend…One-fourth is ready to so choose, given the example of one other…One-fourth is resistant to election. They are unattracted by life ever-evolving. One-fourth is destructive. They are born angry with God…They are defective seeds…There have always been defective seeds. In the past they were permitted to die a ‘natural death’…We, the elders, have been patiently waiting until the very last moment before the quantum transformation, to take action to cut out this corrupted and corrupting element in the body of humanity. It is like watching a cancer grow…Now, as we approach the quantum shift from creature-human to co-creative human—the human who is an inheritor of god-like powers—the destructive one-fourth must be eliminated from the social body…”
The manipulation of man’s world (or his perception of the world) by the elect is thus dramatized as an act of benevolence and kindness, or an act of survival necessity, while the collateral damage accrued in the process is presented as an acceptable price compared to the long and coldly arduous cycles of nature. The problem, however, is that the elites have forgotten to ask an eminently important question: Is the kind of control they hope to gain really possible?
The answer is, in fact, already known, and that answer is an emphatic “No”. Let’s set aside the obvious moral minefield involved in the act of playing god and examine the science of the matter, which is the only thing the elites care about anyway.
In order to achieve “godhood”, I think it would be fair to say that one must first have absolute knowledge of his surroundings. If unknowns exist, then one cannot be in control of the present, or, predict the future, and as Einstein once wisely stated, “God does not play dice…”
The Uncertainty Principle
The work of physicist Werner Heisenberg led to a groundbreaking pillar of quantum mechanics known as the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Heisenberg surmised that in order to identify the future state of any object, one must know every aspect of its present state. And, to understand the object’s present state, one must have absolute knowledge of it down to the very particles that make it what it is.
To determine the future state of a particle, like an atom, one must know at the very least it’s position, direction, and momentum. What Heisenberg discovered, though, was that any attempt to observe these qualities actually changed the nature of the particle. That is to say, there is no available method for mankind to observe a particle’s state without affecting it and redirecting it in an unknowable way. Most importantly, quantum mechanics shows us that infinite possibilities defy finite determinations. Even the act of looking at a thing can abruptly change a thing. Therefore, how can the elites believe it will ever be possible to mold their environment in a godlike fashion if the tools for such an endeavor do not and will never exist?
The Incompleteness Proof
The answer to the Uncertainty Principle would be to find a way to mathematically quantify “infinity”. If one can find a structure to infinity, then one can determine an infinite number of possibilities, and, thus, predict all possible outcomes. The elites are thwarted again, though, by a brilliant mathematician and close friend of Albert Einstein named Kurt Godel.
Godel’s focus had long been to identify and define a mathematical structure for infinity. If humanity had the means to encompass the infinity concept in a mathematical equation, then clearly, all probabilities could eventually be made available by a simple matter of plugging numbers into a computer. Godel never found this equation. Instead, what he found rocked the core of the scientific community and flustered prominent global elitists like Bertrand Russell.
The Incompleteness Proof became Godel’s crowning achievement, though it proved the exact opposite of what he had originally planned to find. Ironically, Godel’s mathematical model established, without question, that infinity cannot be quantified by mathematics, and that there is no scientific formula that encompasses all things. The proof does this using what we now call a “self inclusive paradox”. A simplified example of this ides is represented in this word puzzle:
“Everything I say is a lie”
If I lied, then is everything I say actually a lie? The circle goes on forever and defies logical explanation. Godel placed this puzzle in the form of an equation, and ended the elitist delusion that all things could one day be dissected by math. Now, there are those who respond to this fact by quipping that “some things are unknowable, until we know them…” These folks do not understand what a mathematical proof is.
A “proof” is an undeniable mathematical reality that will never change, and will never be undone. For instant, one plus one will ALWAYS equal two. Always. There is no future date in which this equation will not represent concrete fact. The same goes for the Incompleteness Proof. Bertrand Russell, a prominent supporter of the New World Order with visions of scientific dictatorship sought desperately to dismantle Godel’s Incompleteness Proof, even to the point of writing a massive three volume mathematical theorem, the Principia Mathematica, that fell utterly flat. Just in case you are not aware of what kind of man Russell was, here a quote to educate you:
“After all, most civilized and semi-civilized countries known to history and had a large class of slaves or serfs completely subordinate to their owners. There is nothing in human nature that makes the persistence of such a system impossible. And the whole development of scientific technique has made it easier than it used to be to maintain a despotic rule of a minority. When the government controls the distribution of food, its power is absolute so long as they can count on the police and the armed forces. And their loyalty can be secured by giving them some of the privileges of the governing class. I do not see how any internal movement of revolt can ever bring freedom to the oppressed in a modern scientific dictatorship…” - Bertrand Russell, The Impact Of Science On Society
Russell expended so much effort in vain against Godel’s proof because it threatened his globalist theology of human godhood. If the universe could not be fully defined through numbers, then the elites would never be all knowing deities. They are already aware that their goal is unattainable, and yet, they continue in their insanity to press forward…
Inherent Psychological Knowledge
If the elites cannot control the very fabric of the universe, then they have revealed through their methodologies that they would at least be satisfied with controlling the human mind. If they can control perception, then they can manipulate the masses into believing that they are gods, even if they never will be.
The key to perception control, at least in theory, is to gain dominance of environmental conditions within society. In other words, use people as blank canvases and paint them as you please. This strategy assumes, however, that people are “blank canvases”, and that human character and ideology is determined solely by environment. This philosophy of mass mental molding was undone by the studies of Carl Gustav Jung, a psychologist who was booted out of the mainstream psychiatric community because his findings destroyed the blank slate assertions of the Freudian model.
Jung discovered that the mind was, in fact, not “blank”. Rather, the building blocks of certain knowledge, personality, and even moral conscience were inherent at birth. This inborn knowledge gave humanity the virtue of choice; and if people are born with the ability to choose, then their environment is only as influential as they choose to let it be. This limits technocrats to medicinal suppression of preexisting personality traits, which is not "godlike" at all. The suppression of personality is a far cry from the creation of personality.
The question of where, exactly, inherent knowledge comes from, must also be a frustrating conundrum for the elites. One might discard religion, but it would appear that even the sciences suggest that there is another force or intelligence out there, far beyond the capabilities of man’s observation, or ability.
Children In A Sandbox
When I look at the entire summation of elitist efforts to remake the world, all I see is a naïve reorganizing of a much greater work of art. Life is not perfect, at least, not by our definition, but life is also not a science; it is an emotional creation, with an emotional and spiritual brand of “logic”. The rational Puritanism and technocultism of the globalists could never hope to unravel the mysteries of our universe, or our existence. You can never truly know what you do not truly love
Invasive technologies, psychiatric manipulation, and genetic tinkering are, at bottom, nothing but mud-play in an imaginary sandbox. The elites want godlike power, but the greatest power of god is to create from nothingness. Technocrats do not create. Instead, they violently scoop up what already exists and fumble with it wildly, stupidly, fancying themselves omnipotent, like children lording over the ocean while pretending it’s a fish tank.
They do not comprehend the substance of what they meddle in, and this is their greatest downfall. You cannot improve on something you do not understand.
I do not subscribe to the notion that humanity exists only to subsist and to procreate. I do not believe we are meant to remain in the dark as to the nature of life. If that were the case then we would not have been endowed with such insatiable curiosity, or the free will to follow it. I do believe that we are here to learn, and to grow, and to find solace in a greater recognition of our existence. That said, there is a vast difference between knowing a thing, and trying to control a thing. For the elites, understanding is not enough. For the elites, understanding is only a door to dominance.
Luckily, fundamental unknowns derail the pursuit of full knowledge, and thus, full control. The universe has its own checks and balances in place to counter the ambitious, striking down thirsty faux gods who reach too high for what they do not respect, and will never deserve.
