British scientists have just been given the go-ahead to genetically modify human embryos. There are grave concerns, however, that this latest development opens the door to ‘designer’ or GM babies. Gene editing, which enables DNA to be modified, is just another step towards the ultimate goal of genetic engineering: to create an artificially intelligent human being. So far the results have been disappointing but nothing can stop what’s coming in the pursuit of the ultimate scientific dream.
The difficulty for scientists has been in replicating the creative function of the brain, which will enable the robot to respond with the precision of human intelligence in any given situation. However, a scientific breakthrough is pending in which a remarkable biologically engineered gene will replicate the self-reflective intelligence of human beings. These human robots will be artificially self-conscious, animated through biological implants which seamlessly replicate, in appearance and action, the functions of man and woman. As amazing as they appear, the human robots will have a major flaw: they will be devoid of love and unable to be conscious of the source of their inward intelligence.
The new technology will revolutionise the world in ways beyond our comprehension. The most obvious indication of global cultural change will be the ever-widening gap between the rich and poor. The national security services will deploy A.I. combat soldiers to police the growing civil unrest, which will result in residential areas for the wealthy and privileged classes becoming inaccessible to the masses.
The subconscious impulse that motivates the scientific mind to produce such technological marvels has its roots in the primal mind-stuff of the immemorial past. Slavery, although no longer politically correct, is deeply embedded in the human psyche as a complex of intense desire patterns for control and power over others. The emotional craving to enslave has never gone away, only imperceptibly filtrated through the global scramble for comfort and convenience. The invention of A.I. human slaves will be seen to fill this niche. The primary role of these robots will be to function as sexual slaves for the pleasure of man to do anything he wants without needing to be responsible for his actions.
Love between the genders will all but disappear. For what could compete with relinquishing any sexual restraint that inhibits man’s animalistic drive to dominate another? Woman, the female principle, will have no choice but to follow the example of man. She will inwardly despise his betrayal of her and go along with the virtual performance of sex without love. The pain of child birth, which woman willingly and valiantly undertakes on behalf of life on earth, will no longer be necessary. The transference of the conception of life from earth womb to sterile laboratory symbolises the externalising of the scientific rational mind. It’s not the technology that’s the problem but the degeneration of virtue that comes from abandoning love on earth for a manufactured replica of the reality behind the body. No good whatsoever will come from Artificial Intelligence, except as an evolutionary phase of human culture consonant with the deepening descent into human ignorance and the exploration of the objective universe.
