Out goes the Homo Sapiens and into oblivion. In comes Homo Superior, the new transhuman. We are living in unprecedented times. Humans no longer love being humans. God’s beautifully crafted man-woman relationship is forcefully being displaced by unnatural LGBT’s demands. And for the rich and powerful, subservience to their rulership is the game. Since they cannot control the will of man, the other best option is to create a new slew of robots to serve. Man’s ingenuity cannot be under-estimated. The robots are not hard machines, but will be as human as you can imagine. Transhumans – you cannot tell the difference between man and machine. That’s the New World Order.

Here comes Jibo – technology made human. The days are approaching when technology and humanity converges. Robot or human, human or robot? Soon this distinction will be harder to delineate. Man’s love for humanity is diminishing, while our fascination for machines is increasing. Man wants absolute control over things. Unlike humans who have minds of their own, robots, since they are man-made, are seen as the perfect slave that can be controlled. That’s the logic. How wonderful would the world be if we have robotic slaves that are almost human, minus a self-will. But his may be illusionary. In the movie “2001 – A Space Odyssey“, machines became so intelligent that they could become rulers of man, rather than be ruled. Is that day imminent? Read the rest of this entry »
BBC News – “In China this month a record 7.26 million will graduate from the country’s universities – more than seven times the number 15 years ago. (…..)
Unemployment among new graduates six months after leaving university is officially around 15%. Even that conservative estimate means over a million new Chinese graduates will be jobless.
The real unemployment rate could be closer to 30% – some 2.3 million unemployed from this year’s graduating cohort alone, according to Joseph Cheng, professor of political science at City University of Hong Kong.”

Swedish carmaker Volvo is behind the initiative, together with sports gear manufacturer POC and technology company Ericsson.
The group hopes the helmet will become part of the growing vehicle2vehicle and vehicle2infrastructre (v2v, v2i) scene, enabling it to inform a cyclist of surrounding danger.
Using a smartphone app, the helmet can ‘talk’ to other vehicles in the immediate area via the Volvo cloud and display a warning light to the wearer if need be.
Drivers can also benefit from the technology, with a similar warning shown on the head-up display if the car detects a collision with a cyclist wearing the helmet (watch video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Iz8VE1L2S-4).

Technology is getting smarter. Robots are replacing man. This is no sci-fi, the writings are splattered all over the wall. The “brains” are increasingly tilting towards immortal machines while mortal humans are growing more stupid. At this rate of development, no wonder Prof Stephen Hawkins envisioned a pessimistic prediction that soon humans may become extinct. Is it possible? Considering the fact that humans are now walking like zombies staring at little screens and not thinking while the machines behind the technologies are doing all the work, it is no understatement that the mortals are growing lazy and stupid. The days of “2001 – A Space Odyssey” is at hand. The distant hum of “Daisy Daisy…..” is growing louder by the day. Are we hearing it or still pursuing our merry making in squander land?

The world is currently reeling with high unemployment. Eurostat estimates that 24.413 million men and women in the EU-28, of whom 18.395 million were in the euro area (EA-18), were unemployed in October 2014. In the US, jobless rate decreased to 5.9 percent in September from 6.1 percent in August, the lowest rate since July of 2008. The number of unemployed persons decreased by 329,000 to 9.3 million (source: Trading Economics). There is a huge divergence of the US unemployment statistics from the 24% unemployment that was reported by Shadow Government Statistics. According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), a record 20% of American households are on food stamps i.e. one in five, were on food stamps in 2013. These figures suggest that the official unemployment figure of 5.9% is highly questionable. Read the rest of this entry »
The world is increasingly reliant on automation and robots for productivity, i.e. getting more (profits) while using less resources (cost). Commercially, this is completely justified. However, there is a social downside to this one-sided laissez faire philosophy. It has a tendency to promote greed at the expense of social needs. Walking the tight-rope of maximising profits and social responsibility demands not only great leadership, but wisdom and compassion. Wisdom that prevents splitting a baby into half in a situation of compromise. Compassion that stops greed from getting into excesses. This is particularly so at the governmental level where the trust of public governance is upon the shoulders of a few men, all of whom can easily succumb to personal greed over social needs.

“I was born human but I believe it’s something we have the power to change”
– Kevin Warwick
Mother Nature Network – “Between our laptops, smartphones and tablets, we already use technology to connect ourselves in ever-advanced ways to the world. Indeed, the line between technology and reality has become increasingly blurred. Projecting into the future, it’s not hard to imagine the line disappearing entirely — when humans and technology merge and become indistinguishable. Some philosophers and scientists think this kind of “technological singularity” could be achieved within just a few more generations. In other words, we’re all well on our way to becoming cyborgs.
