The Ubermensch vs. the Transhuman | Systems and Symbols

Posted: February 18, 2018 at 10:44 am

vs.

One of the goals of any future White collective should be the evolution of a more advanced human type. This new man in the past has sometimes been referred to as the Ubermensch. I will use this term as well. I wanted to describe my own vision for the Ubermensch and where it fits with the White Path (1) religion that Ive been describing. I want to contrast this Ubermensch with the transhumanist vision that is pushed by the globalist elites and their ideological fellow travelers.

The starting point for my vision of the Ubermensch is with a physical description. The new man/woman would be a perfect physical specimen. The model for which can be found in athletes and models found in their respective fields today. The real challenging question is how much technology should be used in the creation of such specimens? This author prefers that while technology can be used, that much of the development of such bodies should still require that the individual work hard to obtain it. The discipline required to obtain a healthy body is part of the reason for obtaining it. While important, the physical attributes of the Ubermensch are really the least significant aspects.

The real importance lays in the mental and spiritual realms. An Ubermensch is a being that exemplifies the 9 noble virtues (2). This is being that can lead people. That has creative and problem solving abilities. This is a being who is highly motivated, but at the same time serene. This is a being who loves life and who loves the mission allotted to him/her by the Creator (3), but who will gladly sacrifice their life for the good of the mission. This is a being who cares little for material possessions. This is a being that desires mastery in their specialization within the collective White community. This is a being in-tuned with the Force/God and nature. This is a being constantly looking to improve him/herself, while being confident in who they are. This is a humble being. This is a being without ego. This is being whose intentions stem from a positive place (love, goodwill, kindness).

Achieving the Ubermensch will require an environment that could bring this person about. The White Path will be the most important institution in bringing this being about. The White Path will include the White gods in its theology that act as models of the Ubermensch. New mythologies will be written (or uncovered) that tell of these beings in action. The practice of meditation and contemplation will be a major part of producing such beings. The educational institutions will also be important in bringing this being about, but this author expects that the White Path will have its own educational institutions just as the Catholic Church does. Physic powers will be cultivated.

If theres one point that I must make perfectly clear to future persons carrying out my vision, is that you MUST NOT mix the human mind with machines. There is no reason for a human mind to have the computational ability of a computer. If you need to compute something, use a computer. Hooking the mind into a computer will allow for outside forces to control the mind. The future White collective community must always keep the mind machine free.

The future White intergalactic civilization will use robots, computers, and androids, but the decision making will always be done by humans with minds not hooked into computers. The concept of singularity (where artificial intelligence (AI) becomes more intelligent than humans) is extremely dangerous. The future White collective must always have an off switch for AI and if no off switch is possible; then the technology should not be created.

People make the argument that future enhanced humans will be able to think, compute, and communicate faster than non-enhanced humans. This is true, but once the human mind is jacked into a central computer, or into a cloud of other minds, all human freedom will be lost. It can even start out with good intentions, but if someone can hack into the central computer, then all reality can be controlled by outside forces that dont have good intentions. Theres an inventor named Kurzweil who has been pushing this future. His argument is persuasive in that hes promising immortality. The problem is that his immortality is a false promise. If our minds get downloaded into computers, whats to stop someone from smashing the computers? Wars will occur between cloud-mind entities, which can and will result in computers being turned off. With the introduction of scalar weapons, whole solar systems will be able to be blown away.

Of course, not everything Kurzweil says is bad. We should pursue life enhancement technologies. We should regrow arms and legs. We should make the blind see and the deaf hear. We should replace bodily organs. We can even use virtual reality for various uses. But we must not hook our minds up perpetually to computers. Computers also go down without wars; what happens if the computers go down and people are forced to live without them? Will people be able to cope with life in the real world?

Much of Kurzweils motivations come from a fear of death and sadness from the loss of his father at an early age. The globalist elites look for people like Kurzweil to carry out certain aspects of their agenda. I recall the Jewish, anti-White activist Tim Wise writing about how White Christians supposedly picked on him while he was growing up. People like Kurzweil and Wise are chosen because the pain from their past works as great centers of motivation. The globalist elites have agents who are highly skilled at finding what motivates people and how they can use resentments and personality flaws to contribute to their mission of world domination. Carrying out the globalist agenda gives people like Kurzweil and Wise an outlet for their pain and also makes them very wealthy. Finding an outlet for pain is not a bad thing in itself. It only becomes negative when you perceive the rejection of your worldview as tantamount to the original source of the pain.

We on the White Path will carry out our Great White Art Project in the form of an intergalactic civilization. At the center of our art is the building of a new man/woman that can one day be called Ubermensch. We will do so with the aid of technology, but will not create a being that is exclusively technological. Our Path will be slower, but more thorough. We seek to improve the folk physically, mentally, and spiritually. While we do so we will not interfere with the art projects of others. But if you interfere with ours whether by White genocide or by forced transhumanism, then well have to pull your plug. Or perhaps well hack into your computer-minds and make you part of computer games for children to torment?

Oh, and one more thing. Ive noticed that the transhumanism idea is starting to leak into White Nationalism. The day may come where the globalist elites offer to wipe out the Jews and non-Whites in return for taking their chip in the head and/or hooking up to their computers. Dont fall for it! These same elites are the ones who put the Jews and non-Whites on us in the first place. Theyll gladly wipe most of the Jews (or non-Whites) out to achieve their New World Order. I repeat, dont fall for it!!! There is plenty of room in the universe for non-Whites and yes, even Jews (just not the ones who push White genocide) to pursue their way of life.

We Know How to Prevent Heart Disease—So Why Don’t We?

Posted: February 17, 2018 at 4:11 pm

I bet you know that heart disease is common. I bet you even know it’s deadly. But I have two questions for you:

  1. Did you know it’s the number one killer worldwide?
  2. Did you know that almost all of it is entirely preventable?

It’s true. Not only does cardiovascular disease kill millions of people worldwide each year, it’s also almost entirely preventable.

The truth is, most people don’t want to change their life. They have the power to change their life, to make themselves far less susceptible to cardiovascular disease, and they simply don’t do it.

But why?

There are several reasons why people don’t make those lifestyle changes. Let’s look a little more closely at each one.

Lack of information

The truth is, plenty of people don’t know the risk they are at, much less how to minimize those risks. Consider that in 2015, 82% of the 17 million premature deaths were in low- and middle-income countries, and 37% of those deaths were the result of cardiovascular disease.

Out of the 17 million premature deaths (under the age of 70) due to noncommunicable diseases in 2015, 82% are in low- and middle-income countries, and 37% are caused by CVDs. The truth is, many of those people simply haven’t had access to the information because the medical education infrastructure simply isn’t there. We have to believe that at least some of those people would make the necessary lifestyle changes if they knew they needed to make them.

Time, energy, and cost

While in the long-term it is quite obviously more expensive to not take care of yourself, many of us live in the short-term, day-to-day. Exercising, eating well, and taking care of our personal health can take time, energy, and cost not all of us are convinced we have. In the middle of a long week, our day may consist of getting up, driving to work, being stressed all day at work with the exception of a smoke break or two, then drive-through dinner on the way home before crashing after a long, hard day. While long-term that lifestyle is not at all sustainable, there are plenty of Americans who can’t imagine living another way. This especially true as fast food is subsidized in ways that much healthier options often aren’t, and both rural and urban food deserts can also contribute to difficulties in eating well.

Lack of motivation

Of course, some people know they could live healthier, and can afford the time, energy, and cost, and still choose not to make those lifestyle choices. This is likely the category most unhealthy Americans fall into, to be quite frank.

So what lifestyle changes would it take?

The truth is, it wouldn’t take much to make a major dent in those risk factors. The following factors, referred to as “life’s simple 7” by the American Heart Association, decrease the risk of heart disease by 80%, stroke by 50%, and cancer by 30%. So why wouldn’t you make these seven changes?

Those simple seven?

  • Manage blood pressure
  • Control cholesterol
  • Reduce blood sugar
  • Get active
  • Eat better
  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking

None of those are hard steps to take, and each of them can help make the other steps easier. For instance, quitting smoking makes it easier to exercise, and exercising regularly makes it easier to lose weight. Losing weight has been shown to help with blood pressure, and also makes exercising easier. Eating better makes exercising easier and has been proven to help you lose weight. Reducing your blood sugar makes it easier to exercise, and helps you lose weight. These seven steps each make the other steps easier, so it really isn’t nearly as big a step as you might at first think.

Yet most Americans fail at this simple checklist. Roughly one American dies every forty seconds from cardiovascular disease—that’s more than 800,000 people each year! Put another way: Roughly the population of Charlotte, North Carolina dies each and every single year from cardiovascular diseases just in the United States.

So why don’t we prevent heart disease? I don’t know. But I bet we could all do a little better getting the information out there and helping people make healthier lifestyle choices.

Societal Consequences of Human Genetic Engineering …

Posted: February 17, 2018 at 2:46 pm

Section 15 of NOVAs program, Cracking the Code of Life, utilizes popular film and television scenarios to relate to its audience the potential possibilities of future genetic modification of humans. In a scene from GATTACA, the doctor explains the process of choosing simply the best of the two parents DNA to create their child in a petri dish. According to Francis Collins, former director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and current director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), that technology is right in front of us or almost in front of us.

[http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1EdlIO/www.wickedreport.com/genetic-errors/]

The advancement of research in genetic modification raises ethical concerns of how this information technology will be used in the future. Who will regulate which genes are modified and which are not? If law prohibits genetic modification except in cases of modifying mutations that cause diseases, how will the law regulator, presumably the government, define a disease? What will be the standards for disease severity? Will the law provide genetic modification for mutated genes like BRCA but not for blindness or alcoholism? How will they decide which diseases are more important or more severe than others?

Society as a whole can generally agree that using genetic modification to help prevent incurable diseases like cancer, diabetes, and Tay Sachs disease, is highly favorable. Potential prevention of these diseases could save thousands of people pain, suffering, anxiety, and, on a more superficial level, millions of dollars. The line begins to blur when society examines the possibility of using this genetic modification technology not only to prevent disease, but to make their children genetically different to enhance their performance.

If society decides that anyone who can afford genetic modification can take advantage of its benefits, will parents begin to alter the characteristics of their future children? Program host Robert Krulwich asks, what parent wouldnt want to introduce a child that would at least be where all the other kids could be?

All parents want their children to have the best possible start to life and have the best advantages that they can provide. I wonder how far some parents would go to secure the best genetic start for their children. If genetic modification becomes a public option, it will probably only be available to those who can afford it. Because of the inevitability of its high cost, the only people who would be able to afford to create genetically perfect children would be those in the highest percentile of wealth. Therefore, if only a certain group with a specific socio-economic status could even have access to this science, the gap between social classes will increase not only because of a disparity of wealth, but also because of a disparity in gene perfection. The definition of elite will encompass human perfection through genetic modification.

The First Genetically Modified Human Embryo

Defying nature to build super-humans is not a real concern until science has proven that this is possible, and currently this technology is not perfected. Science should be allowed to progress and discoveries should not be hindered or stopped. However, it is important for society to decide now how they will deal with the ultimate results of future scientific research.

The Science of Integrative Medicine – English

Posted: February 17, 2018 at 2:46 pm

Perhaps youve heard rumors about an herbal supplement that acts as the Fountain of Youth, improves your mood, and helps you lose weight. Maybe youve considered trying hypnosis to stop smoking, but youve heard it might be just a waste of money. You may be curious about how getting stuck with many sharp needles can actually alleviate pain and stresswhen it seems like it should do the opposite.

If youve ever considered herbal supplements, meditation, acupuncture, yoga, or even a change of diet to promote better health, then you already know that the subject of whats been called alternative medicine is both intriguing, offering help for conditions that might seem hopeless, and controversial, with its effectiveness touted by some and scoffed at by others.

The Science of Integrative Medicine, produced in collaboration with Mayo Clinicwidely regarded as one of the finest health institutions on the planetprovides you with 12 informative lectures on the science-based facts and historical context of commonly used integrative treatments. Delivering a foundational explanation of this wide and diverse new field of medicine, this course is designed to empower you and give you the knowledge you need to explore how to use these techniques to improve your wellness. Taught by Brent Bauer, M.D., director of Mayo Clinics Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program, this course provides you with an illuminating exploration of many genuinely beneficial treatments.

In the last two decades, as a wide array of practices have gained greater acceptance as potential forms of treatment and healing, the terms used to describe them have evolved as well. Complementary and alternative medicine, or CAM, was once the common name for therapies once considered alternative or unorthodox. Today, as physicians integrate more of these treatments into their medical practices, the term CAM has given way to integrative medicine.

Integrative medicine describes the integration of natural or holistic practices into the health-care paradigm to complement conventional Western medicine and promote wellness. Western medicine can accomplish incredible feats of healing, but as advanced as it is, it still doesnt have cures for everything. Relying solely on conventional Western medicine, people often wait until they have serious health problems before seeking carebut integrative medicine includes many practices that are particularly good for preventing certain conditions and ameliorating the effects of others, making it a valuable adjunct to conventional care.

The therapies discussed in this course have been shown to help people reach health goals such as pre-surgery preparation, post-surgery recovery, and better managementand reductionof chronic pain. The advent of integrative medicine has been revolutionizing Western medical care as doctors realize that their options for patient care can be expanded to a plethora of complementary practices that directly benefit wellness and can help alleviate, prevent, or remedy issues such as arthritis, chronic back or neck pain, fibromyalgia, Alzheimers disease, high blood pressure, stress, heart disease, menopause, and the common cold.

Tour the Most Common Integrative Practices

In The Science of Integrative Medicine, Dr. Bauer, of Mayo Clinic, introduces you to more than a dozen scientifically tested, integrative approaches and explains what they do and do not treat, empowering you to take your health options into your own hands. He leads you through the science and history of some of the most common practices and discusses the pros and cons of each. He also offers suggestions for when and how you might consider talking to your doctor about including these therapies in your wellness plan. Through this course, youll learn about:

Treatments by professionals:

Treatments you can do on your own:

And physical exercises:

In addition to teaching you about specific practices, Dr. Bauer reveals the key to getting the most out of any form of integrative medicine: a solid foundation of wellness that includes simple lifestyle changes that can lead to significant improvements in your health. For example, youll hear about the concept of NESS, which is based on research that demonstrates how a program involving diet, exercise, stress management, and social support can reverse the aging process on a cellular level in a test group.

The Good, The Bad, and the FDA Unapproved

Dr. Bauer provides an in-depth investigation into a number of popular myths about integrative medicine without resorting to oversimplifying or generalizing. He kicks off this exploration with a review of the positive and negative effects of herbal remedies.

A lot of the skepticism about herbal remedies comes from the fact that they are not FDA-approved. On a supplements packaging, you may see this: This statement has not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Dr. Bauer sheds light on what this really implies and why it may not always be cause for concern. At the same time, he cautions us against some common herbs, which, at their worst, have been known to cause death. Receiving medical guidance about herbal remedies is vital. Even commonly used herbs, such as chamomile, can cause serious harm to someone with a severe allergy.

The conclusion Dr. Bauer reaches is that when working with a doctor, most herbal supplements can be used effectively. Dr. Bauer helps you do your homework to become a well-informed and wise patient and consumer when it comes to herbal supplements, so that you can make the best decisions for your optimal health.

A Trusted Source of Information

This course is an up-to-date and authoritative exploration of integrative medicine. Dr. Bauer is a Professor of Medicine, and he has been the director of the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program at Mayo Clinic for 15 years. His main research interest has been the scientific evaluation of complementary therapies, where his work is at the forefront of the emerging field of integrative medicine, combining the best of conventional Western medicine with the best of evidence-based complementary therapies. Dr. Bauer and Mayo Clinican indisputably trusted resource for medical factsprovide evidence for the effectiveness, benefits, and drawbacks of integrative therapies in a straightforward, well-organized, and thorough manner, making the benefits of each practice easy to understand and accessible to everyone.

The Science of Integrative Medicine will help you take a proactive approach to your health and wellness. As you delve deeply into integrative practices and learn the science behind how and why they work, youll gain a deeper appreciation for why Western doctors are now evaluating and incorporating such practices into an array of tools at their disposal to help you reach and maintain wellness. At the conclusion of the course, youll find yourself to be a more informed decision-maker. And youll see that by working with your doctor to discuss the scientifically backed practices you feel comfortable with, it is possible to put together an integrative program that can positively affect your health.
