The following article discusses a growing trend in the world today known as biohacking, which is a euphemism for transhumanism.

For example, ORMUS or Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements form naturally in volcanos and are activated by fungi, which are then absorbed into plants. Coherent electromagnetic fields can even produce ORMUS within the body itself, generated by beneficial states of being. And as researchers such as Bruce Lipton have demonstrated, emotional states can and do affect biology, altering gene expression, known as epi-genetics. Stress causes further degradation of biological processes whereas holistic states of mind, body, and emotional coherence revitalize the body.
Vital Energy, known as Chi or Prana within Eastern traditions, has long been acknowledged as the source of life within all organisms and the universe at large. Practitioners who are able to properly train their minds via physical and mental techniques can tap directly into this energy, enabling them to stop consuming food entirely. Clearly, if one does not need consume food—an impossibility within the medical establishment—the body must be nourished by more than just chemical compounds from food. In other words, the body is using food to draw in vital energy, but this energy can be collected directly from the cosmos—without having to consume food.
The common thread seems to be consciousness itself, but more to the point, how we organize our consciousness. The beliefs, wordviews and ideals we maintain directly impact how emotions are generated, which have biochemical and electromagnetic components. Emotional dynamics radiate our state of consciousness as an EM field or chemical bath, enshrouding the body in either coherent (organized) energy or dissonant (chaotic) energy. The more powerfully our thoughts, emotions, and actions are in harmony, the more vitalized we feel, and the healthier the body will be.
Probably the most obvious example of this is the Placebo Effect. The body can be profoundly healed if one believes that it can be. But its little-known sibling, the Nocebo Effect, can do the reverse, again on the basis that one does not believe it is possible.
Given all this, it’s clear that the causes of aging are far beyond what established science claims. The truth is, our consciousness and what we do with it, is the key principle to understand. And since the mind is the gateway of all our decision-making power, becoming the master of our own consciousness is vitally important—pun intended.
The following Native American Cherokee allegory speaks to the heart of the matter:
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between 2 “wolves” inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”— Cherokee Indian
So what beliefs do you have? Are you a biological machine or a being of consciousness having a physical experience?
Society, especially in the so-called first world, has a rather myopic view of life. It says we are nothing more than random evolutionary accidents, the product of eons of chance. Within this viewpoint, consciousness is nothing more than a byproduct of biology (materialism), but given what was discussed above, does this seem accurate? It seems more likely, based on the available evidence, that consciousness is prime and biology is an effect generated by it.
The transhumanist agenda is centrally focused on the aforementioned false belief of materialism. People today are conditioned to think that what they do and how they emotional feel plays almost no role in health and that our genes determine everything, so why bother learning about health or changing ourselves. Given that psychiatric drug consumption has skyrocketed within the past decade, and human health has degraded so widely in the US, this viewpoint is decidedly short sighted.
If we simply acknowledged the greater realities of our relationship to the universe, wherein consciousness is the foundation for all things, then the idea of biohacking seems quite foolish, even insane. It’s similar to taking a perfectly good house and reducing it to ashes just because the lights stopped working. Why not fix the damn lights instead of tearing the whole house down?
The following article details the transhumanist ideology of our fellow humans that have lost touch with reality, and as such, turn to technology to solve their shortcomings. But the cost of abandoning the treasures of our own house, while we seek for treasures outside of us, is incalculable.
“I warn you, whoever you are…
Oh, you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you be able to find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures.
Oh, man, know thyself and thou shall know the Universe and the Gods!”— Phrase inscribed in the ancient Temple of Delphi.
Has humanity lost touch with reality so profoundly that it can’t realize the truth about our current practices? If we had an owner’s manual for the human body, it would read something like this:
If you are unhealthy, become wise. If you are not balanced, then seek for it.
If you are whole of mind, body and spirit, disease will not touch you.
But if you forsake the simple and effective methods of health for external pleasures, do not seek for solutions outside of yourself, for they will only lead to more hardship.
For in the process of making yourself whole with artificial things, you loose connection to the source of all life, you loose touch with consciousness itself.
A little self-reflection, especially when it comes to being healthy, goes a long way to generating causes that have the effects we desire. In the end, the solution to all our problems, whether health related or otherwise, starts by becoming a master of our own house. It is the long and empowering road of self-mastery and true sovereignty, founded on the belief that changing oneself is the first step to all outward change.
Note: There are many valid health points brought up below, but the solution offered, transhumanism, is not realistic. The problem isn’t technology per say, the problem is refusing to look at the true causes of poor health, and incorporating consciousness as a factor. Clearly providing health for all people everywhere is an admirable goal, but transhumanist philosophies are reactionary, instead of preventative.
Elizabeth Parrish, Chief Executive Officer and guinea pig for Bioviva, announced today that she has become the first human “successfully rejuvenated by gene therapy.” Using two proprietary processes, Parrish claims to have reversed two decades worth of telomere shortening, the process that leads to the breakdown of cell replications in the vast majority of living things. Telomere scores — measured using white blood cells — indicate that Parrish, who was 44 years old in September, has slowed a cellular process many scientists believe to be one of the root causes of aging.
That makes today a big day for Elizabeth Parrish. She’s publicly announcing a potential cure to the disease she feared would kill her: Time.
Parrish has become one of the leading lights of the biohacking movement by refusing to see aging as a fundamental fact of life. She described her highly experimental gene and cellular therapies as treatment targeted against an epidemic sometimes called the “silver tsunami.” She has made it very clear that, to her, “old” is a diagnosis. What she hasn’t always made clear — and seems to actively avoid addressing — are the moral, societal, and even medical ramifications of her work. Also the science.
Earlier this week, she spoke to Inverse about becoming her own patient zero, how human cells are like computers, and why she’s justified in evading the FDA.
|“It will become so obvious why we haven’t been able to “cure” the diseases of aging — because we’ve been treating symptoms for so long,” Parrish told Inverse.|

If this actually happens; is everyone going to have equal access to these types of therapies?
Yeah, absolutely. It’s going to happen very similar to computers or cell phones. At first the technology is very expensive, because it’s new. First it’s kind of like building a supercomputer, and then eventually everyone gets an iPhone. In your life when you look at that, you don’t ever remember living without an iPhone. Certainly you like an iPhone better than you would have liked it if you had to pay for the first supercomputer because your iPhone is much more predictable than the supercomputer was. But it’s that model, and we will get there as quickly as we can to drive down the costs so that everyone does have access to it.
Are we going to have to shift the retirement age? What’s the limit here?
I don’t really get into those kinds of questions. My job is to mitigate the diseases we can mitigate. To create the mandate on the Earth that the minute we do that, we have to move forward. If we think we have something, it would be immoral not to move forward with it. How long people can live, I don’t know, but I want them to live as well and as healthy as they can live for as long as possible. That’s good for society, that’s good for the economy, that’s good for you and me, and it’s good for the future of our planet.
Won’t you run into a problem finding people willing to take part in your studies, if they’re so experimental?
We have no end of volunteers, both healthy and sick. As a reminder, as far as the FDA’s concerned, in the past 50 years they have passed, through their gold standard, 50 drugs that have been pulled from the market. Some of those drugs were actually harmful, if not fatal, to patients. We cannot pretend that their standard has kept anyone safe. It was there initially to keep people safe. It’s not actually doing a good job of that. It definitely serves a purpose, where we want drugs with safety and efficacy, we want to keep the public safe, but not to the point where they’re dying, waiting for treatment.
If you’re letting people die without access to experimental treatments, then your safety and efficacy administration is failing.
