US intelligence’s vision of 2030
A few days ago, I sent out a list of articles about scientists incorporating human DNA into animals and creating an embryo which has two moms and one dad. Today, I am sending out an article about how the gov’t is moving to creating cyborgs – people who are part machine. There is a whole transhumanism group out there which is supporting turning humans into something else. It is downright scary and it changes what it means to be human. Once these hybrids escape the lab, they will change a species. Cyberfox
Things are about to get a little weird. This according to the National Intelligence Council, at least, a US-based coalition of spy agencies that has just released its predictions for what’s in store for the Earth in 2030.
The NIC released on Monday “Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds,” an 140-page report that brings together the best brains within the intelligence sector to find out what we might expect a few decades down the road. Given the current rate of growth in technology and medicine, the marvels considered in the NIC report shouldn’t come as all too surprising. Only 18 years down the road, however, the ideas being pitched by the people behind the report might not be as much science fiction as soon-to-be-reality. It also might very well be predictive policy making.
“We are at a critical juncture in human history, which could lead to widely contrasting futures,” Council Chairman Christopher Kojm writes in the report.
With the next few years ripe for experiment, the future is “malleable,” Kojm suggests, making no time like the present to start perfecting space-age advances once thought to be out of this world. On the contrary, though, the NIC seems to think cyborg civilians and instant super-cities are thing of the not-so-distant future.
