Postgenderism: The Genetic Singularity (video part 2)



SCRIPT:


Changing genetics is not enough, creating the ultimate postgender human requires changing the brain itself. The gendered human brain could be rewired to fit a postgender blueprint.


"but only the blurring and erosion of biological sex, of the gendering of the brain, and of binary social roles by emerging technologies will enable individuals to access all human potentials and experiences regardless of their born sex or assumed gender."


Yes, the technological means to these bizarre ends are being developed. They have been in the works for a long time, and we are now confronted with material like this which illustrates the postgender goals which have fueled research from the very beginning. Transhumanism has taken old postgender ideas and built upon them with the description of far more advanced technologies.


"trans- or post-humans would at least be able to transcend the limitations of biological sex and would eventually be able to transcend the biological altogether into cybernetic or virtual form."


The fact that we already depend highly on virtual worlds, especially in terms of satisfying sexual desires is also mentioned. Virtual sex is touted as being safer, easier, and more customizable than traditional human relationships. The gender binary is slowly eroding as people blend their sexual identity with avatars of a different gender and often a different species.  The ultimate revolution in virtual sex would occur when artificial intelligence could simulate the erotic response of a human, making virtual sex indistinguishable from the real thing.


"But the final liberation from dyadic, gendered, heteronormative relationships will likely come about through use of drugs that suppress pair-bonding impulses."


Why would anyone actually put such bold remarks down in writing?  Why is the erosion of dualistic gender being sincerely explored by the scientific establishment?  Is there a collective subconscious desire to merge the two sexes into one?

Living Computer Systems

Scientists have recently created a biological computer. Check out this article to learn how they modified the DNA of E coli bacteria so that it would carry out a specific program. In this case, it was programmed to determine driving directions, a sort of living mapquest.

This is a prime example of how converging technology works. Seemingly separate fields of research can be combined to create new technologies. With biological computing we see the convergence of IT, and biological science. So what is IT that is being done here?

Living computers are being developed. This adds an interesting dynamic to the subject of artificial intelligence. What could it ultimately become? What sort of relationship would powerful AGI have with biological organisms? Would it be able to reprogram life as we know it? Would it "choose life" for itself? Oh the speculation!

These speculative tangents are a bit distracting. What we must realize is that technology is amazingly advanced. It appears as though humans are still in control, but one has to wonder if technology hasn't already taken on a life of it's own. Who made who?

But seriously, how far along is technology, really? We know that Ai already exists and is being put to the task of decoding human biology (bioinformatics.) You have to wonder if there are developments that we are not being told about.

Technology is being developed faster and faster due to cooperation between all areas of scientific research. Human scientists concern themselves with niche areas of study, but technology as a whole encompasses all disciplines. The Singularity is beyond human comprehension. It is a force which uses the work of individual scientists to bring about a collective intelligence. This collective intelligence may very literally have a life of it's own. The Singularity may not be a future event, perhaps it has already happened, or is happening.

This thing is bigger than you or me. It is beyond human. Human > TRANShuman > posthuman. The TRANSformation of mankind. What are we becoming?
