Transhumanism and Overpopulation


Greetings, folks. I'm really new to the subject of transhumanism and am barely familiar with the subject itself, but from my understanding, it boils down to the melding of technology to make man more than he currently is. I feel that our culture (and when I say"our culture", I mean the culture where food is under lock and key and must be purchased as a commodity, as well as the culture that believes that human beings are fundamentally flawed) is not prepared to responsibly apply transhumanistic applications to better our place in the planet. Rather than explaining the various reasons, I'll hone in on one such application for this blog entry, and that is the application of extending our lifespans.

The Fountain of Youth, eternal life, and all such concepts of living forever in one's current body or in a young body have been a part of our culture for a very long time. Not since the beginning of humanity, and not even for the majority of it, but it's been around probably for as long as civilization has been around (which is approximately 10,000 years). I think it's only natural that as our technology got more and more advanced, we've pondered on how to apply it to extend our lifespans, perhaps indefinitely. In my opinion, the desire to be immortal is a power fantasy, and a rather dangerous one at that. Allow me to explain.

One of the things our culture has forgotten is that we are as much a part of the biosphere as mice, beetles, whales, lions, tigers, cats, dogs, bacteria, flowers, trees, birds, and all the rest of the biological community. Though many people deny it, humans are animals, mammals. Like the rest of the biological community, we are food. That's what the biosphere consists of: food. Walking food, swimming food, talking food, flying food, and just-sitting-there food. We are what we eat, literally. Within the rest of the biological community (except for our culture), there is a negative feedback system that handles population control, and that negative feedback system is called food availability.

Say you have a group of five field mice in a cage that can expand and shrink in accordance to the amount of field mice available, and you feed them .5 kilos of food, just enough food for five field mice (for the sake of this example). Everyday, you feed them .5 kilos of food, and everyday, the field mice eat all of the food available. The next day and from here on after, however, you double the amount of food to 1 kilo to these 5 mice. Invariably, those five field mice will increase in proportion to the amount of food available, so as time goes on with the 1 kilo of food being fed, those five field mice will become ten. When this happens, say you decide to double the amount of food again, to 2 kilos this time. Guess what will happen? The population of field mice will double yet again, given time. With absolute certainty. Guess what will happen when you double the food supply for these field mice again, to 4 kilos? They will double again, to approximately 40 mice. With absolute certainty.

Now, let's try something different and stop increasing the amount of food to the field mice? Guess what will happen? Their population will stabilize. If they continue to reproduce and grow beyond the available amount of food it takes to feed them, they will start to die off from starvation, until their population goes to stable levels. Now let's reduce the amount of food available, from 4 kilos to 3 kilos. Guess what will happen to the population? It will reduce appropriately. Why? Because they don't have the appropriate amount of food to sustain a greater population than their food supply allows. Why? Because they are made of food.

This phenomenon doesn't happen only with field mice, it happens with every species on the planet. The population of any given species will grow only up to the amount that it's food supply can support. When they exceed that limit, they start to die off. As their food supply goes down, so will their population. When food is allowed to grow, the opportunity for the increase of their feeder's population occurs. Each side controls the other. A negative feedback system.

Our culture, however, has found a way to defeat that negative feedback system, which has led to an ever-increasing world population. The idea that we are the exception to the ABCs of ecology (what I've just described above) is absurd, and there are 10,000 years of proof behind it. Our culture's method of acquiring food (agriculture to the max) has allowed us to bypass the negative feedback system, with disastrous results. Unlike any other species or human culture (where food is free for the taking), our culture flies in the face of the ABCs of ecology. We wage war with other species, we kill their food, and we deny them access to food. No other species in the biosphere does that, and no tribal culture does that.

Yes, there are starving millions in Africa and the more civilized countries in the world have either a minimal population growth per year, a zero growth, or even a negative growth, but as a species, every year, our global population grows, without fail. Every year, we grow more and more food. It may not be distributed properly (such as the starving millions in Africa, who've been starving for over 70 years), but we grow more and more food. How do we know? What are we made of, if not food? Pixie dust? We are food. As our food supply grows, our global population grows, and as our global population grows, the problems that plague us (war, famine, crime, etc.) grow along with it. Just look at the history of human civilization. It is plagued with misery, death, and despair. The more people that were jam-packed together, the greater these problems became. Only a fool could not see that.

And yet, we're trying to achieve immortality with technology? Really? Why? Why compound the problem by not being able to die off? And what price will we, the masses, pay for such ambition? More methods of control? Being tagged and herded like cattle? Fuck that, I say. If we are to take control of our population growth, we need to go to the ABCs of ecology and control the amount of food we grow. It works with field mice, it works with lions, it works with gazelles, it works with sharks, and we are no exception.
