Try becoming a true human being first
I am no expert in the subject of transhumanism, so if I tend to misperceive it as something other than the predictable and nearly inevitable outcome of our trendy over-fascination with technology at the expense of real consciousness related evolution, forgive or correct me.
I think this entire focus should be more correctly called dehumanism, since we’ve so far failed to become true human beings first in our headlong rush for ever more distraction, entertainment and escapism via technology. Simply being able to create more toys, sophisticated weapons and other technological marvels doesn’t guarantee consciousness related evolution.
It sure seems like many of the human beings of Earth are a pretty disturbed lot, who are hell bent on fulfilling the most dismal and destructive prophecies concerning how people – who haven’t yet become true human beings – make some serious mistakes as they rush to bring their wrongly determined priorities to fulfillment.
And certainly Billy Meier’s warning about the dangers from the independent computerized weapons reinforces our concerns about the overall wrong direction in which we are headed and which, in fact, may actually already be upon us.
Fortunately there actually are a number of thinking people in the industries concerned who take a dim view of the all-embracing enthusiasm and naivette that presumes that all human problems can be solved by what still essentially are…machines. And there’s apparently a movement afoot to try to curb the wrongheaded thinking, such as is of course favored by the strictly militarily minded. I’m sure I’m not the only person who, almost 20 years ago, recognized the very military implications in even the earliest video games, which have no “evolved” to the point of truly subhuman sadism, violence, etc.
So while we aspire to be like the Plejaren apparently are, in terms of having android beings that serve and interact with their human population and have a kind of consciousness, projections as to when we could accomplish this kind of scenario don’t take into account the huge disparity between our consciousness-related/spiritual development and the responsibilities of effectively creating machines that will then take over our lives. And with some of the negative human traits already in evidence pertaining to the ability of robots to lie to each other there is much to be concerned about.
The Spiritual Teaching
This is a good place to note that not only would we have to somehow imbue machines with certain moral and ethical operating systems but that the things that make human beings actually far more than machines aren’t always recognized and valued even now.
So what are the elements of the spiritual teaching pertaining to all aspects of our consciousness related evolution that are at risk of not being developed by us in time to assure truly responsible actions in every step of the creation of advanced robots and androids? Is it already a forgone conclusion that, if we don’t wipe ourselves off the face of the Earth before we manage to perfect this technology (whatever that may mean), that we will eliminate ourselves because we succeeded in this dubious, premature technological development in which the creations destroy their creators…as per the prophecies?
