"Those who actually achieve much, although they may desire the rewards, have also something in their nature which inclines them to choose a certain kind of work as the road which they must travel if their ambition is to be satisfied.
This artist's impulse, as it may be called, is a thing of infinite value to the individual, and often to the world; to respect it in oneself and in others makes up nine tenths of the good life.
In most human beings it is rather frail, rather easily destroyed or disturbed; parents and teachers are too often hostile to it, and our economic system crushes out its last remnants in young men and young women.
The result is that human beings cease to be individual, or to retain the native pride that is their birthright; they become machine-made, tame, convenient for the bureaucrat and the drill-sergeant, capable of being tabulated in statistics without anything being omitted.
This is the fundamental evil resulting from lack of liberty; and it is an evil which is being continually intensified as population grows more dense and the machinery of organization grows more efficient." - Bertrand Russell
1956 "Curtis Shafer, working as an electrical engineer for Nordon-Ketay, offered the following prescription at the National Electronics Conference in Chicago.
Shafer said, The ultimate achievement of biocontrol may be man himself.
The controlled subjects would never be permitted to think as individuals.
A few months after birth, a surgeon would equip each child with a socket mounted under the scalp and electrodes reaching selected areas of brain tissue. - Jim Keith

"The current prevailing view is that participation in biomedical research is above and beyond the call of duty.
While some commentators have offered reasons against this, we propose a novel 'public good' argument for an obligation to participate in biomedical research.
Biomedical knowledge is a public good, available to any individual even if that individual does not contribute to it.
Participation in research is a critical way to support an important public good.
Consequently, all have a duty to participate.
The current social norm is that individuals participate only if they have a good reason to do so.
The public good argument implies that individuals should participate unless they have a good reason not to.
Such a shift would be of great aid to the progress of biomedical research, eventually making society significantly healthier and longer lived." - G. Owen Schaefer, BA; Ezekiel J. Emanuel, MD, PhD; Alan Wertheimer, PhD

2015 The foundations of transhumanism are many, but the most important are : cryonics, gene therapy, cybernetics, molecular manufacturing, mind/brain uploading and artificial general intelligence.
Cryonics is the practice of low-temperature preservation of flesh with the hope that one day there will be the technology to resuscitate the body.
Molecular manufacturing and molecular nanotechnology are cornerstones of transhumanism.
Techniques in molecular nanotechnology will enable man to create self-repairing organs so that radiation, viral RNA, prion protein, TCE, Bisphenol A, MTBE, polytetrafluoroethylene, PCB, phthalates and polybrominated diphenyl ethers no longer effect your tissues.
Cybernetics is a major aspect of transhumanism, hearing and vision enhancements, brain-computer interface, metabolic enhancement, artificial muscles, bones and organs.
Enhancements will be difficult to notice once implanted in the human body.
The cyborg of the future may perform better than any mortal living today!

October 10, 2019 "These are people at the apex of the American economy and society, those who did everything right, worked hard and grasped the brass ring of conventional success.
When the meeting broke into small groups and individuals were asked to speak briefly about their lives, more than a few people teared up and began weeping.
I was struck dumb by the disconnect between their tremendous success and their personal misery - of failed marriages, of being trapped in their jobs, in feeling their sacrifices weren't worth it and in sensing the shallowness of their success and the poverty of their inner lives.
Not every super-successful person was miserable; some shifted gears to lower-paid work they found more fulfilling and others still loved their careers.
What was nearly universal was the desire to get the heck out of Silicon Valley and leave its pressure-cooker lifestyle in the dust. " - Charles Hugh Smith, America 2019: Even the Wealthy Are Poorer in Everything That Matters
Ever since the discovery of the first tools people have seen technological advances as positive and desirable - fire, the wheel, pottery, glass, horticulture, boats, writing, printing press, locomotives, telephone, airplane, television, satellite, microwave, computer, etcetera.
Technological advances have reduced the distance between cultures but unfortunately the distance between interpersonal communicants appears to be expanding.
Paradoxically, the closer we get, the further apart we appear to be.
Communications technology is responsible for increasing interpersonal distance.
Tools are intended to make one's work easier.
However, the increased ease and time saved, afford people the opportunity to become less interdependent and more autonomous and self-reliant.
Where women once gathered at the the edge of the water to do the laundry in social groups outside the home; men and women now go to the laundry room and turn on the washing machine, quickly returning to the comfort of the living room, kitchen, or den.
Tools originally designed to aid in the execution of some activity sometimes come to replace that activity.
Human input goes from maximum to almost nonexistent.
The telephone facilitates the delivery of "food" to our front doors as cable access delivers recently released movies for home viewing while internet availability permits shopping for nearly anything anytime on-line.
A consumer can take advantage of all of these slaves and never leave the comfort - and the isolation - of the home.
All of this increased social isolation is encouraged and validated.

This website defines a new perspective with which to en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from Яeality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt Ѵersion of Яeality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religi☯us practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed the Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion based on reaso🐍 which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the cu☮ing the spi☮itual co☮☮uption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the vi☬lence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to control the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the world economic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the coλλapse of moraλs, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c✡rp✡rate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra¢tion and ¢oer¢ion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
