Humans 'will become God-like cyborgs within 200 years'

OWoN: Irrespective of personal views on Transhumanism, the hard fact is that Science has the lead, and the appliance of science to man's immortality, will be the driving force behind creating a cybernetic species. Our only role is to attempt to shape its humanitarian evolution. Graphic images are not how it will evolve. But the concept is the same.




Humans 'will become God-like cyborgs within 200 years'


The amalgamation of man and machine will be the ‘biggest evolution in biology’ claims Professor Yuval Noah Harari

Wealthy humans are likely become cyborgs within 200 years as they gradually merge with technology like computers and smart phones, a historian has claimed.

Yuval Noah Harari, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said the amalgamation of man and machine will be the ‘biggest evolution in biology’ since the emergence of life four billion years ago.

Prof Harari, who has written a landmark book charting the history of humanity, said mankind would evolve to become like gods with the power over death, and be as different from humans of today as we are from chimpanzees.

He argued that humans as a race were driven by dissatisfaction and that we would not be able to resist the temptation to ‘upgrade’ ourselves, whether by genetic engineering or technology.

“We are programmed to be dissatisfied, “ said Prof Harari. “Even when humans gain pleasure and achievements it is not enough. They want more and more.

“I think it is likely in the next 200 years or so homo sapiens will upgrade themselves into some idea of a divine being, either through biological manipulation or genetic engineering of by the creation of cyborgs, part organic part non-organic.

“It will be the greatest evolution in biology since the appearance of life. Nothing really has changed in four billion years biologically speaking. But we will be as different from today’s humans as chimps are now from us."




However he warned that the 'cyborg' technology would be restricted to the wealthiest in society, widening the gap between rich and poor in society. In the future the rich may be able to live forever while the poor would die out.

Prof Harari said humans had become such a dominant species because of our ability to invent ‘fictions’ which held society together, such as religion, money and the idea of fundamental human rights, which have no basis in nature.

“God is extremely important because without religious myth you can’t create society . Religion is the most important invention of humans. As long as humans believed they relied more and more on these gods they were controllable.

“But what we see in the last few centuries is humans becoming more powerful and they no longer need the crutches of the Gods. Now we are saying we do not need God just technology.

“The most interesting place in the world from a religious perspective is not the Middle East, it’s Silicon Valley where they are developing a techno-religion. They believe even death is just a technological problem to be solved.

“What enables humans to cooperate flexibly, and exist in large societies is our imagination. With religion it’s easy to understand. You can’t convince a chimpanzee to give you a banana with the promise it will get 20 more bananas in chimpanzee heaven. It won’t do it. But humans will.

“Most legal systems are based on human rights but it is all in our imagination. Money is the most successful story ever. You have the master storytellers, the bankers, the finance ministers telling you that money is worth something. It isn’t. Try giving money to a chimp. It’s worthless.”

Prof Harari most recent book is entitled Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind which was originally published in Hebrew under the title A Brief History of Mankind, has been translated in to more than 30 languages.

  1. Sorry folks, but the hard reality is fact. The rich live, the poor die.That is the future. Decide which.

    1. The only reason it is a "fact" is because the criminal control-obsessive political rich keep creating coffin-corner economies. A truly free, liberal, economy would propel the masses into wealth thru productivity. Transhumanism of any flavor would then enhance that allowing us to lasso the bottom tenth that couldn't afford it and we could propel the totality of humanity into a glorious future in record time. (Hardly need 200 years. You could do it in 50 assuming a proper 18-month doubling of free technology trends.) But that would involve actual freedom which has never been seen except in pale reflection, ironically enough, in Britain and the original Republic of the united States.

  2. Haven't met any extraterrestrial beings and none of them have been described as cyborgs. If this is the path we will travel why does it not seem to have taken hold elsewhere in the universe?

  3. Have you see the size of the universe and we are in a small outer galaxy? Some have trillions of suns alone. How we develop is up to us;.

  4. I don’t understand how anyone here thinks any of this is good. We discuss the cabal and their control of the system. We discuss how we allowed them to take control. Does not everyone here believe that the technology inserted into us will have back door accesses, and intentional security breaches. This is a complete and final path to eternal damnation. How scary will it be to become an eternal digital being and have some being switch your database to a pain and suffering program, forever. This site should be warning people that this is another mechanism of control, and to reject it. The cabal has control over the political and financial systems, do not let the cabal have control over your body. Don’t let Google (the cabal) put wearables into your body. This site is always challenging everyone to wake up…well WAKE UP!

    1. A warmup for embedded chips. Glad so many see through this.

  5. I think its sad that 'the rich' cling to any external lifeboat and not give a crap about anyone else. This shows nothing has changed for them, its the same old show.

    This guy in the article is laughable in saying they aim for the divine but use technology. LOL.

    Let the rich learn from us for a change, what a soul is, what Divine multidimensional consciousness we already have which will give us much more than this technology.

    I am inspired by the examples of the Pleaiadeans and Sirians, who imbued technology with sentient consciousness. The opposite of 'the rich' imbuing their bodies with only technology, in an attempt to be Icarus so they can flitter around Lake Como a few more years. I find the idea petty.

    The way forward lies in developing our multidimensional consciousness alongside the technology.

  6. If the rich are stupid enough to put tech in their bodies that someone else can control than they wil get what is waiting for them. The cabal families steal from one another and stab each other in the back. There is no loyalty when power and money are at stake.

  7. John,
    Let's view cyborgs from the four pillars of medical ethics. I believe it fails in all four areas... you can't believe that cyborgs are a good thing in the path of evolution of man. It is a sad existence for, not only the rich, but also the poor.

    The Four Traditional Pillars of Medical Ethics
    o Respect for autonomy of the patient. Autonomy refers to the capacity to think, decide and act on one's own free initiative.
    o Beneficence: The general moral principle of doing good to others is focused by the lens of being in a professional caring relationship. The definition of 'what is best' may derive from the health professional's judgment or the patient's wishes (see Autonomy); these are generally in agreement, but may diverge. Beneficence implies consideration of the patient's pain; their physical and mental suffering; the risk of disability and death; and their quality of life. At times, beneficence can imply not intervening, if the benefit of therapy would be minimal.
    o Non-maleficence: do no harm. In most cases of treating sick patients this adds little to the beneficence principle. But most treatments involve some degree of risk or have side-effects, so this principle reminds us to ponder the possibility of doing harm, especially when you cannot cure. In dealing with healthy people (e.g., preventive care, immunizations), do the benefits outweigh the potential harms? Remember that medicine has a long history of doing harm.
    o Justice. Resources are limited; you cannot cure everybody and so priorities must be set (hence the notion of triage). In allocating care, the Justice principle holds that patients in similar situations should have access to the same care, and that in allocating resources to one group we should assess the impact of this choice on others. In effect, is what the patient is asking for fair? Will it lead to a burden to others (such as the family caregivers)? While your primary duty is to your patient, others will be affected by your decisions and there may be a tension between beneficence, autonomy and justice.

    I will not believe you think this a good thing. I have to believe you are only stating fact.

    1. Several articles have glorified transhumanism here so apparently One World of Nations is in favor. For me, I have no plan to allow myself to be 'remote controlled.'

    2. I wouldn't call it "glorifying". It is simply reality. It is coming and cannot be stopped. Our worry is who will control it, who gets it and why.

      You can debate the morality, but that will not stop it. It has many advantages, also disadvantages if used maliciously. Which is our point.
