CREATION AND...TRANSHUMANISM

Rui Barbosa, PhD (U. Grenoble, France), Founder of the First Humanity+ Portuguese Chapter, transhumanismo@sapo.pt.

 

Technology will allow a) mitigating some of the worse evils affecting Humanity, and b) to ourselves to become more powerful:
- Lack of Democracy (that causes Illness, Hunger and War), Pollution and routine Work of Mass Production (around 2020)
- Impossible or dangerous Works (around 2050)
- Unpleasant Works (much later than 2100).
But the obligation to work is not the only evil that makes Man suffer; in the next chronicles we will see how we will be able to try to diminish the other forms of suffering; to approach them, we need to revisit the process of the Creation.
From God, pure spirit, in-temporally sprouts a “blow”, everything that exists, according to an important Philosopher and Physicist (1). But what blow is that one? “Blow” remembers spirit because, in the Bible, “blow” was used to refer to an “immaterial principle of life”.
In temporal terms (since Time was born in the Big-bang), from God, infinite being, will have sprouted a kind of initial fire ball with energy also tending for infinite … Energy realized in force. And the Cosmos is a set of forces (2), according to many present day physicists, which, to the similarity of God even if only in the physical plan, is one, indivisible, omnipotent, and omnipresent … and that “coagulates”, in determined circumstances (namely in the presence of an observer), in the Matter… According to Teillard de Chardin (3), in the Universe, since its beginning, have actuated, alternatively, forces of re-ordering of the beings with other beings and of centring of the beings in themselves (for instance, in Atomic Physics, those connecting the electrons of different atoms or those making the electrons to turn around the nuclei); a re-ordering being followed by a centring and this being followed by a new reordering to a superior level of aggregation of the beings concerned; the vector of the Evolution being the increasing complexity of the beings with a corresponding increase of their respective conscience. The complexification of the human society constituting gradually a kind of supra-humanity gradually adding the consciences and self-consciousnesses that are coming to existence (and not only the consciences: it is not a synthesis of the individual contributions, but a personalized and additive “corpus” of all the individual persons that have existed…).
The Christ Phenomenon
Historically, Jesus Christ was conscientious to have brought the Kingdom of God defined in the Old Testament. And His disciples, after a short period of loss of heart, confessed to have seen Him resurrected (that is, with an alive body, after dead) and continued His preaching of the Kingdom of God, that would be accessible to Man through Christ, who was the Way, the Truth and the Life. Christ “divided” the Human Time in 2: before and later; Christ is therefore a unique man in His quality…
Christ stirred up Man to give more importance to a life that is not seen, nor smelled, nor herd, nor touched and still less tasted, than to the material life. That is the Spiritual Life, which is perpetual, which means without beginning or end (therefore not to confuse with a life that would only start after Death…).
Transhumanism
The use of Technology for the living beings to suffer less and be more powerful only can be inserted in this context and it cannot abstract from it. By the way, the Vatican emitted a declaration in which it says that the creation of a superman, or superior being, by human hands, is "unthinkable", because a true improvement can only happen through the religious experience and "carrying through more fully the image of God". For who is not convinced, we will remember that Religion is a valuable source of knowledge, because of the principle of Kant (we cannot deceive much people during much time)…
We will, in the next chronicle, write a little more about the relation between God and the Nature.
