Two years ago, in October 2018, Forbes contributor Neil Sahota, a
United Nations artificial intelligence adviser and UC Irvine
professor, warned that transhumanism is fast approaching - likely
faster than you think. 1
"In the past few years, there has been considerable discussion
around the idea we are slowly merging with our technology, that we
are becoming transhuman, with updated abilities, including enhanced
intelligence, strength, and awareness," Sahota writes.
The goal of the transhumanist movement, or "Human 2.0," is to
transcend biology into technology.
Or, as Dr.
Carrie Madej explains
in this video, to meld human biology with technology and

the Crossroads of Transhumanism
According to Madej, right now, today, we may be standing at the
of transhumanism, thanks to the fast approaching
release of one or more
mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
Many of the
COVID-19 vaccines currently being
Their design is aimed at manipulating your
very biology, and therefore have the potential to alter the biology
of the entire human race...
Conventional vaccines train your body to recognize and respond to
the proteins of a particular virus by injecting a small amount of
the actual viral protein into your body, thereby triggering an
immune response and the development of antibodies.
This is not what happens with an mRNA vaccine.
The theory behind these
vaccines is that,
when you inject the
mRNA into your cells, it will stimulate your cells to
manufacture their own viral protein. 2
The mRNA COVID-19 vaccine will be the first of its kind. No mRNA
vaccine has ever been licensed before. And, to add insult to injury,
they're forgoing all animal safety testing.
Madej reviews some of the background of certain individuals
participating in the race for a COVID-19 vaccine, which include
Moderna co-founder Derrick Rossi, a Harvard researcher who
successfully reprogrammed stem cells using modified RNA, thus
changing the function of the stem cells.
Moderna was founded on this
concept of being able to modify human biological function through
genetic engineering, Madej says.
Side Effects Should Be
the mRNA vaccines are designed to instruct your cells
to make the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, the glycoprotein that attaches
to the ACE2 receptor of the cell.
This is the first stage of the
two-stage process viruses use to gain entry into cells.
The idea is that by creating the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, your
immune system will mount a response to it and begin producing
antibodies to the virus.
However, as reported by
Reaction, researchers have pointed out potential weaknesses:
"According to researchers at University of Pennsylvania and Duke
University, mRNA vaccines have potential safety issues, including
local and systemic inflammation and stimulation of auto-reactive
antibodies and autoimmunity, as well as development of edema
(swelling) and blood clots." 4
Systemic inflammation, auto-reactive antibodies and autoimmune
problems are not insignificant concerns.
In fact, these are in large
part why previous attempts to create a coronavirus vaccine have ALL
Over the past 20 years, coronavirus vaccine research has been
plagued by one consistent adverse outcome in particular, namely
paradoxical immune enhancement.
This is caused by the fact that coronaviruses produce two different types of antibodies:
Incapable of preventing viral infection, binding antibodies can
instead trigger paradoxical immune enhancement.
What that means is
that it looks good until you get the disease, and then it makes the
disease far worse than it would have been otherwise. As detailed in
interview with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., in one coronavirus vaccine
trial using ferrets, all the vaccinated animals died when exposed to
the actual virus.
According to Madej, animal studies have also found the type of mRNA
technology introduced with this vaccine can increase the risk of
cancer and mutagenesis (gene mutations).
What You Need
to Know About the Delivery System
Madej goes on to discuss how this mRNA vaccine is going to be
Rather than a conventional injection, the vaccine will
be administered using a micro-needle platform. Not only can it be

The problem with all of this, Madej notes, is that they're using a

"Vaccine manufacturers have stated that this will not alter our DNA,
our genome," Madej says.
"I say that is not true. Because if we use

not do the same thing to a human? I don't know why they're saying
If you look at the definition of
transfection, it will tell you that
it can be a temporary change in the cell. And I think that is what
the vaccine manufacturers are banking on.

the genome, and to be so stable that it will start replicating when
the genome replicates. Meaning it is now a permanent part of your

Naturally, we won't find out the truth about whether the vaccine
causes a temporary or permanent change for many years after the
experimental vaccine is introduced, and that's an important piece of
Because synthetic genes can be

synthetic RNA ends up creating permanent changes in the genome,
humans will contain patentable genes.

Another part of the delivery system that raises its own set of
questions is the use of the enzyme luciferase, which has

Neuralink - A
Psychiatric Disaster in the Making?
Another transhumanist that has recently brought us to a brand-new
precipice is Elon Musk, with his latest venture, Neuralink,
described in the video presentation given in late August, above.
Neuralink is a transcranial implant that uses direct current
stimulation. For now, the device is aimed at helping people with
brain or spinal injuries.

Getting back to the mRNA vaccines, time will tell just how hazardous
they end up being.
Clearly, if the changes end up being permanent,
the chance of long-term side effects is much greater than if they
end up being temporary.
In a worst-case scenario, whatever changes occur could even be
The problem is these issues won't be readily apparent

We really should not be quick to dismiss the idea that these
vaccines may cause permanent genetic changes, because we now have
proof that even conventional vaccines have the ability to do that,
and they don't involve the insertion of synthetic RNA.

The Swine Flu
Fraud of 1976
We can also learn from the swine flu fiasco of 1976, detailed in
this above 1979 '60 Minutes' episode.
Fearing a repeat of the 1918 Spanish
"the government propaganda machine cranked into
action," '60 Minutes' says, telling all Americans to get vaccinated.
According to '60 Minutes', 46 million Americans were vaccinated
against the swine flu at that time.
Over the next few years,
thousands of Americans filed vaccine damage claims with the federal
As reported by Smithsonian Magazine in 2017:
"In the spring of 1976, it looked like that year's flu was the real
Spoiler alert: it wasn't, and rushed response led to a
medical debacle that hasn't gone away.
'Some of the American public's hesitance to embrace vaccines - the
flu vaccine in particular - can be attributed to the long-lasting
effects of a failed 1976 campaign to mass-vaccinate the public
against a strain of the swine flu virus,' writes Rebecca Kreston for
'This government-led campaign was widely viewed as a debacle and put
an irreparable dent in future public health initiative, as well as
negatively influenced the public's perception of both the flu and
the flu shot in this country'."
A 1981 report by the U.S. General Accounting Office to Sen.
Durkin, D-N.H., reads, in part: 20
"Before the swine flu program there were comparatively few
vaccine-related claims made against the Government.
Public Health Service records showed that only 27 non-swine flu
claims were filed.
However, as of December 31, 1979, we found that 3,839 claims and 988
lawsuits had been filed against the Government alleging injury,
death, or other damage resulting from the 45 million swine flu
immunizations given under the program.
A Justice official told us that as of October 2, 1980, 3,965 claims
and 1,384 lawsuits had been filed. Of the 3,965 claims filed, the
Justice official said 316 claims had been settled for about $12.3
