Microsoft creating Language to program DNA
Some things just should never happen...

Synthetic biology aims at producing novel biological systems to carry out some desired and well-defined functions. An ultimate dream is to design these systems at a high level of abstraction using engineering-based tools and programming languages, press a button, and have the design translated to DNA sequences that can be synthesised and put to work in living cells.

Ahh, more tech-based transhumanism "Hive Mind" crap surfacing.


Sol Hyperion (and others), have you yet reviewed any of the 424 pg. 2002 document called Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance?

Link to document--


[link to www.wtec.org]


Just reading the Overview section of the document will be enough to give you an idea of the future being carved out for Humanity...the what-who-how-where-whys of what is going on behind closed doors, right under our noses. It's enough to, literally, make your head spin.

Just a smidgen of what they're after is found here--



"Technologies of interest


Main article: Human enhancement technologies
Converging Technologies, a 2002 report exploring the potential for synergy among nano-, bio-, info- and cogno-technologies, has become a landmark in near-future technological speculation.

Transhumanists support the emergence and convergence of technologies such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science (NBIC), and hypothetical future technologies such as simulated reality, artificial intelligence, superintelligence, mind uploading, and cryonics. They believe that humans can and should use these technologies to become more than human.[68] They therefore support the recognition and/or protection of cognitive liberty, morphological freedom, and procreative liberty as civil liberties, so as to guarantee individuals the choice of using human enhancement technologies on themselves and their children.[69] Some speculate that human enhancement techniques and other emerging technologies may facilitate more radical human enhancement no later than the midpoint of the 21st century.[42]

A 2002 report, Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance, commissioned by the National Science Foundation and US Department of Commerce, contains descriptions and commentaries on the state of NBIC science and technology by major contributors to these fields. The report discusses potential uses of these technologies in implementing transhumanist goals of enhanced performance and health, and ongoing work on planned applications of human enhancement technologies in the military and in the rationalization of the human-machine interface in industry.[70]

While international discussion of the converging technologies and NBIC concepts includes strong criticism of their transhumanist orientation and alleged science fictional character,[71][72][73] research on brain and body alteration technologies has accelerated under the sponsorship of the US Department of Defense, which is interested in the battlefield advantages they would provide to the "supersoldiers" of the United States and its allies.[74] There has already been a brain research program to "extend the ability to manage information" while military scientists are now looking at stretching the human capacity for combat to a maximum 168 hours without sleep.[75]"

Indeed, Sol, some things should never happen, but they are, and they're happening without our consent (like so much else).

In my opinion this transhumanist movement is the most covert mother of all conspiracies, bar none. It stands alone.

If you'd like to review an enlightening discussion about the Convergent Technologies document follow the instructions found in my 5/6/10 8:13 PM post found here--

It ain't all that simple. We got this crap (in more ways than one) from aliens. They've spent millenia on us.
