The first human-pig chimeras and Donald Trump is a fascist. These assertions make me think of Noah. In particular, the Bible’s telling of the story leading up to Noah and the great flood.
The Bible is a makers guide. It inspires, enrages, and instructs. I know you don’t believe. It’s unlikely your beliefs will alter reality. Where else to turn? These are magical times, of fear and wonder, the destruction of everything, the start of a new humanity, a new world.
The biblical stories of the great flood, the exodus, Noah, Samson, and so many more, these are, you resolutely believe, nothing more than fantastical tales told by ignorant minds in a vain long ago attempt to explain the world, perhaps even to make themselves seem greater than they were — though they were, in your view, like everyone else, little more than a brief light of life careening in a dark, eternal cosmos.
But what if these tales are real?
What if the magical fantastical is real?
Let’s begin near the begin. Genesis, chapter 6: “More and more people were born, until finally they spread all over the earth.”
So far, so good. Nothing to challenge your skepticism. But the story abruptly and very shockingly shifts:
“Some of their daughters were so beautiful that supernatural beings came down and married the ones they wanted.”
You laugh. Supernatural beings? Marrying — having sexual intercourse with — beautiful human women? Nonsense.
Although a bit of a turn on.
But what if we are the “supernatural beings”? No? Okay, what if these supernatural beings are those about to come?
There are already humans with bionic legs, bionic arms, who walk around with a supercomputer in their hand, knowing all things, who speak a command and a nearby connected device obeys. Like gods. And now this:
Pig embryos that had been injected with human stem cells when they were only a few days old began to grow organs containing human cells.
How many pig-grown ((human)) organs can you have till you become supernatural? Or will those with pig-human chimeras be branded as below the supernatural?
The creation of “intermediate forms” of life (human-pig chimeras) is thought by some critics to “denigrate human dignity and blur the line between what is human and what is not.
Blur the line between what is human and what is not. The supernatural?
Genesis, chapter 6, only at verse 4:
“The children of the supernatural beings who had married these women became famous heroes and warriors. They were called Nephilim.”
In this biblical tale, the blurred line of humanness led to heroes and warriors. Except, God exerts his anger at these destructive “Nephilim.” Regrettably, God is also angry over just how awful all (normal) humans have become. Genesis, chapter 6, verse 5:
“The Lord saw how bad the people on earth were and that everything they thought and planned was evil. He was sorry that he had made them, and he said, ‘I’m going to destroy every person on earth! I’ll even wipe out animals, birds, and reptiles. I’m sorry I ever made them.’”
Thus begins the great flood.
Whether you believe this tale or not, for whatever reasons you believe it or not, we are living this reality — human hybrids. Will it lead to a new deluge? A planet remaking, life reconstructing, technology-driven deluge?
Stay with me.
God spared Noah from the deluge, plus his family plus two — male and female — of every animal. God knew that all humans were awful, excepting Noah.
Question: how did God know that “everything (humans) thought and planned was evil”?
Psychologist Michal Kosinski developed a method of analyzing people’s behavior down to the minutest detail by looking at their Facebook activity—did a similar tool help propel Donald Trump to victory?
Mr. Kosinski and other smart minds in and around Cambridge have developed a model, employed by the Trump campaign, using readily available personal data:
With a mere ten “likes” as input (Kosinski’s) model could appraise a person’s character better than an average coworker. With seventy, it could “know” a subject better than a friend; with 150 likes, better than their parents. With 300 likes, Kosinski’s model could predict a subject’s answers better than their partner. With even more likes it could exceed what a person thinks they know about themselves.
Better than they knew themselves.
And tech companies have scaled this model.
What’s in your heart is known. What’s in your heart can’t stay hidden. Not anymore. Might as well reveal it.
And do make it good.
The Bible is a makers guide.
What other tech is it guiding us towards?
