The year is 1967. A British secret agent has been “frozen,” awaiting the day when his arch nemesis will return from his own deep freeze to once again threaten the world. That day finally arrives in 1997. The agent is revived after 30 years on ice, and he saves the world from imminent destruction.

You’ll probably recognize this scenario from the hit movie, “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” (1997). Cryonics also shows up in films like “Vanilla Sky” (2001), “Sleeper” (1973) and “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968). But is it pure Hollywood fiction, or can people really be frozen and then thawed to live on years later?

The science behind the idea does exist. It’s called cryogenics — the study of what happens to materials at really low temperatures. Cryonics — the technique used to store human bodies at extremely low temperatures with the hope of one day reviving them — is being performed today, but the technology is still in its infancy.

In this article, we’ll look at the practice of cryonics, learn how it’s done and find out whether humans really can be brought back from the deep freeze.

Posthuman – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Posthuman  Comments Off on Posthuman – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jul 282015
 

Posthuman or post-human is a concept originating in the fields of science fiction, futurology, contemporary art, and philosophy that literally means a person or entity that exists in a state beyond being human. The concept addresses questions of ethics and justice, language and trans-species communication, social systems, and the intellectual aspirations of interdisciplinarity. Posthumanism is not to be confused with transhumanism (the nanobiotechnological enhancement of human beings) and narrow definitions of the posthuman as the hoped-for transcendence of materiality.

In critical theory, the posthuman is a speculative being that represents or seeks to re-conceive the human. It is the object of posthumanist criticism, which critically questions Renaissance humanism, a branch of humanist philosophy which claims that human nature is a universal state from which the human being emerges; human nature is autonomous, rational, capable of free will, and unified in itself as the apex of existence. Thus, the posthuman position recognizes imperfectability and disunity within him or herself, and understands the world through heterogeneous perspectives while seeking to maintain intellectual rigour and a dedication to objective observations. Key to this posthuman practice is the ability to fluidly change perspectives and manifest oneself through different identities. The posthuman, for critical theorists of the subject, has an emergent ontology rather than a stable one; in other words, the posthuman is not a singular, defined individual, but rather one who can “become” or embody different identities and understand the world from multiple, heterogeneous perspectives.[1]

Critical discourses surrounding posthumanism are not homogeneous, but in fact present a series of often contradictory ideas, and the term itself is contested, with one of the foremost authors associated with posthumanism, Manuel de Landa, decrying the term as “very silly.”[2] Covering the ideas of, for example, Robert Pepperell’s The Posthuman Condition, and Hayles’s How We Became Posthuman under a single term is distinctly problematic due to these contradictions.

The posthuman is roughly synonymous with the “cyborg” of A Cyborg Manifesto by Donna Haraway.[3] Haraway’s conception of the cyborg is an ironic take on traditional conceptions of the cyborg that inverts the traditional trope of the cyborg whose presence questions the salient line between humans and robots. Haraway’s cyborg is in many ways the “beta” version of the posthuman, as her cyborg theory prompted the issue to be taken up in critical theory.[4]

Following Haraway, Hayles, whose work grounds much of the critical posthuman discourse, asserts that liberal humanism – which separates the mind from the body and thus portrays the body as a “shell” or vehicle for the mind – becomes increasingly complicated in the late 20th and 21st centuries because information technology put the human body in question. Hayles maintains that we must be conscious of information technological advancements while understanding information as “disembodied,” that is, something which cannot fundamentally replace the human body but can only be incorporated into it and human life practices.[5]

According to transhumanist thinkers, a posthuman is a hypothetical future being “whose basic capacities so radically exceed those of present humans as to be no longer unambiguously human by our current standards.”[6]

Posthumans could be completely synthetic artificial intelligences, or a symbiosis of human and artificial intelligence, or uploaded consciousnesses, or the result of making many smaller but cumulatively profound technological augmentations to a biological human, i.e. a cyborg. Some examples of the latter are redesigning the human organism using advanced nanotechnology or radical enhancement using some combination of technologies such as genetic engineering, psychopharmacology, life extension therapies, neural interfaces, advanced information management tools, memory enhancing drugs, wearable or implanted computers, and cognitive techniques.[6]

As used in this article, “posthuman” does not necessarily refer to a conjectured future where humans are extinct or otherwise absent from the Earth. As with other species who speciate from one another, both humans and posthumans could continue to exist. However, the apocalyptic scenario appears to be a viewpoint shared among a minority of transhumanists such as Marvin Minsky[citation needed] and Hans Moravec, who could be considered misanthropes, at least in regards to humanity in its current state. Alternatively, others such as Kevin Warwick argue for the likelihood that both humans and posthumans will continue to exist but the latter will predominate in society over the former because of their abilities.[7] Recently, scholars have begun to speculate that posthumanism provides an alternative analysis of apocalyptic cinema and fiction, often casting vampires, werewolves and even zombies as potential evolutions of the human form and being.[8]

Many science fiction authors, such as Greg Egan, H.G Wells, Bruce Sterling, Frederik Pohl, Greg Bear, Charles Stross, Neal Asher, Ken MacLeod and authors of the Orion’s Arm Universe,[9] have written works set in posthuman futures.

A variation on the posthuman theme is the notion of a “posthuman god”; the idea that posthumans, being no longer confined to the parameters of human nature, might grow physically and mentally so powerful as to appear possibly god-like by present-day human standards.[6] This notion should not be interpreted as being related to the idea portrayed in some science fiction that a sufficiently advanced species may “ascend” to a higher plane of existencerather, it merely means that some posthuman beings may become so exceedingly intelligent and technologically sophisticated that their behaviour would not possibly be comprehensible to modern humans, purely by reason of their limited intelligence and imagination.[10]

Of all the beings in the Universe, only Man is given an experience like this, only Man striving for creation and co-creation under the great impulsion of love.

Humanity is not bad, but the devices of the dark forces obscure spirituality preventing him from experiencing God-given grace.

(Music: Toni Castells & Lyrics: Anastasia & Vladimir Megr)

https://youtu.be/hSL0Z-eru4E

Or go to Rome, which is the sepulchre, Oh, not of him, but of our joy: ’tis nought That ages, empires, and religions, there Lie buried in the ravage they have wrought; For such as he can lend, – they borrow not Glory from those who made the world their prey; And he is gathered to the kings of thought Who waged contention with their time’s decay, And of the past are all that cannot pass away.

XLVIII, Adonais, Percy Bysshe Shelley, spring 1821 (An elegy on the death of John Keats)

Sun, Moon and Flat Earth:

Knowing this, that of a religious image called the “ball Earth” that has been sold children for over fifty years from early ages (and even for five centuries at least), how can we know that we are not just trapped in a thirteenth century virtual reality deprives us of all native orientation to our land and cosmos (to each other, though the cells of our bodies and the people of the world, poisoning the well of all cellular and super-cellular communication through a psychopathic world-brain) but for a level of daily utility married to a proportional loss of native brain function accepts this, depends upon this and even protects this as normal with our very lives; or that any science, from nuclear physics to genetic biology, is any more “real” (or as useful) than the corporate fiction of any religious cult, much after the cultural microprocessor of Rome?

“Then let us throw caution to the wind and abbreviate a def. of fascism as a monopoly (through force and faith, often the same thing) on all of the means and resources of production and subsequently money and power. That is the microprocessor of all economies and ideologies today. Then you can spread whatever kind of fertilizer (or bullshit) you want on top of it. Capisce?

“State fascism (the corporate articulation amidst in order to gain the corporate human animation of systemic disorientation and tax farming of man, woman and child, based on a tacit monopoly on force and faith)” – Axiom 283 – Fascist Microprocessor

The 10 Biggest Tax Havens in the World – TheRichest

 Tax Havens  Comments Off on The 10 Biggest Tax Havens in the World – TheRichest
May 082015
 

In 2009, the governments of the 20 wealthiest countries in the world vowed that they will tighten the regulations that enabled rampant tax evasions in their own nation and territories. The major problem that these countries faced was the high level of secrecy when it comes to withholding the financial assets of clients from the authorities. However, two years later, despite the increase in such regulations, people were still left with a great number of countries to choose from that will allow them to evade their taxes through the use of offshore accounts. This was according to a report made by the Tax Justice Network.

The report, which the Tax Justice Network referred to as the Financial Secrecy Index, assessed 73 different jurisdictions around the world that allowed billions of foreign currency to be stored in offshore accounts. The money that was deposited into these accounts were also left untaxed. The report found that governments worldwide lose approximately $250 billion in revenue every year because of these offshore accounts.

This list is comprised of the 10 biggest tax havens in the world countries that allow the highest level of client financial secrecy, tax evasion, and offshore accounts.

Bahrain, situated near the Persian Gulfs western shores, is a small island-country. The archipelagos largest island is Bahrain Island. While there are plenty of financial institutions offering offshore banking services and bank accounts in the island, its client financial secrecy is the lowest of all the other nations included in this list. Bahrain gets tenth place because it has the lowest level of Financial Secrecy Index value based from the Tax Justice Networks report, which is at 660.3. It also has a Secrecy Score of 78.

Germany makes it easy for people to open offshore bank accounts. However, this has also resulted in the increasing number of individuals opening such accounts so they can evade their taxes. The good news is that the country is trying to control this problem through the implementation of stricter and much more stringent policies. In the report, Germany got a score of 669.8 for its Financial Secrecy Index value, and a Secrecy Score of 57.

Many of the offshore banks in Japan do not subject the deposits made by their clients to interest rate standards and regulations. Fortunately, with the offshore banking center that has been established in Tokyo, the countrys law enforcement authorities would at least be able to monitor and control any developments in these financial institutions.

Jersey is a British Crown Dependency that houses a great number of banks offering offshore accounts to foreign clients. Offshore banking and investments has been a part of the bailiwicks underground economy. In the Tax Justice Network report, Jersey got a Financial Secrecy Index value of 750.1 and a Secrecy Score of 78.

Singapore, an island city-state in Southeast Asia, is considered by many as one of their best choices for opening offshore bank accounts. Almost anyone can open such a bank account without experiencing any hassle. This is one of the major reasons why Singapore was graded with a Financial Secrecy Index value of 1,118 and a Secrecy Score of 71 by the Tax Justice Network.

The states of Nevada and Wyoming are two of the major contributing factors to the countrys increasing problems in terms of tax evasion. In Nevada, there are no capital gains, gift tax, personal income tax, and inheritance tax. In Wyoming, there are no corporate taxes, inventory taxes, unitary taxes, gift taxes, estate taxes, personal income taxes, franchise taxes, and inheritance taxes.

In the Peoples Republic of China, there are two Special Administrative Regions, with Hong Kong being one of them. It is located at the south coast of China and is surrounded by the South China Sea and the Pearl River Delta. Seven million people live in the region. Aside from being a popular tourist hot spot, Hong Kong is also a haven for people who do not want to pay their taxes and deposit large amounts of money in offshore accounts. Here, clients do not have to pay for sales taxes, capital gains, and payroll taxes. They also do not have to worry about personal tax being deducted from their money.

We were deeply honored and very proud indeed to have been invited to keynote yesterdays (11 April) Capas Freedom March to our National Shrine at the site of the World War II Concentration Camp in ODonnell, Capas, Tarlac for Bataan Death March survivors. This was made possible through the partnership of the Department of National Defense, Department of Tourism, and the Automobile Association of the Philippines to honor our Filipino heroes of World War II.

It was the first sizeable, national-level re-enactment of the northern end-portion of the 101 km-long Death March with the secondary purpose of raising funds for a future Capas POW Camp replica.

THE SPIRIT OF BATAAN

To emphasize the occasions importance, let us recall the stirring tribute to the Filipino-American defenders of Bataan composed by then Captain Salvador Lopez later UP President and secretary of foreign affairs and broadcast over the Voice of Freedom by Lieutenant Norman Reyes on 09 April 1942:

BATAAN HAS FALLEN.

WITH HEADS BLOODY BUT UNBOWED, WE YIELD TO THE ENEMY.

THE WORLD WILL LONG REMEMBER THE EPIC STRUGGLE.

WE HAVE STOOD UP UNCOMPLAINING.

BESIEGED ON LAND AND BLOCKADED BY SEA,

WE HAVE DONE ALL THAT HUMAN ENDURANCE COULD BEAR.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided combat, augments, and story detailed

 Transhuman  Comments Off on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided combat, augments, and story detailed
Apr 112015
 

Adam Jensen is a failure…

Human Revolution’s final hours held some fairly catastrophic events, regardless of what final choice you made at the end. Square Enix Montreal isn’t saying which, if any, ending Mankind Divided will build from (and, no, it won’t read your old saves). But suffice it to say that – spoiler alert – augmented people around the world were sent on a brief rampage, the Panchaea geo-engineering plant was destroyed, and the Illuminati have successfully pinned both events on ‘transhuman’ terrorism.

In other words, Jensen failed, and the world has turned against all augmented people because he couldn’t stop the Illuminati. As Mankind Divided begins, Jensen has signed up with Task Force 29, an international police organization dedicated to fighting augmented groups that are chafing against their new position on the bottom of the social order – or, to use the terminology of those on top, terrorists. But serving with Task Force 29 is largely a means to a more familiar end.
