Pentagon Looks to Breed Immortal "Synthetic Organisms"


blacklistednews.com

The Pentagon’s mad science arm may have come up with its most radical project yet. Darpa is looking to re-write the laws of evolution to the military’s advantage, creating “synthetic organisms” that can live forever — or can be killed with the flick of a molecular switch.

As part of its budget for the next year, Darpa is investing $6 million into a project called BioDesign, with the goal of eliminating “the randomness of natural evolutionary advancement.”
My personal opinion is this. It would probably be one of the greatest creations of mankind but could also be the downfall

A little scary, but as long as the military handles it cautiously, then all is fine.

And the potential for this is huge. Imagine nano-machines that can power anything with nano-motors or perhaps machines that digest raw sewage and emit the base elements into any form like H20. Now that's what I call recycling.

Let's not forget that CANCER is the oldest "immortal organism."



Findings Support Study Of Telomerase As Potential Single, Specific Anti-Cancer Target

MENLO PARK, CA — December 23, 1994 — An "immortalizing enzyme" known as telomerase is active in many different kinds of cancers and cancer cell lines, but is not found in the normal tissues from which those cancers arose, according to a study published today in Science by researchers from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and Geron Corp.

These results confirm and extend earlier studies suggesting that telomerase might be a specific and universal marker for cancer with potential as a target for anti-tumor diagnostics and therapeutics.

Hm, I don't understand your logic. Apparently a cellular response to a certain environmental input is an organism?

$6,000,000 for this one project?
Either it's a good thing or a bad thing. If this is meant for researching cancer it's an awful small amount to invest, but if it's meant for something "evil" like blacklistednews likes to report on then it's a massive downscale from past projects they've funded.

I just think that guy is just pointing out the fact that telmorase does make cancer cells immoratal because of enzyme replaces the telomeres on the chromosomes, that being said cancer cells are not immortal in the true definition of the word. and yes cancer cells would be considered organisms as they are just cells that have a messed up cell cycle and a gene turned on that shouldnt be. i wonder if this is the begining of the nano tech age, its been hoped that nanobots in the blood could stop illness maybe this is the begining

Cancer is arguably much more than a "cellular response" - and is implicated frequently as infectious.

...But I don't consider cancer to be an organism though, which is why I put the phrase in quotes. ...Most likely, most infectious cancers are best compared with infectious prions - not organisms because they're not "alive" according to current dogma.

I don't know...but I read somewhere that the alien Grays were synthetic organisms as are the MIB.

So has anyone seen or found any evidence of this topic yet?
Kinda funny how things are over looked

I tend to head over to danger room for all things DARPA,and yep,they have it covered:

Kill switch included! Hooray...

Anyone any idea how far they are with this now?
Another thread gone to waste.

Sounds like Synthoid technology to me.


Now if DARPA can get it to change shape or transform, hmmm.

"Darpa is looking to re-write the laws of evolution"

How can these idiots assume they can even pretend to screw with nature? They will destroy us all. Many ancient civilizations have destroyed themselves because they screwed around, blaspheming what nature has provided us with. We are on the same course all because DARPA wants to develop immortal beings to project American power.

If a being is immortal, why the hell does DARPA assume it will follow their commands? Being immortal, one would not belong to anyone or anything except their own existence. This is so wrong.

DARPA, DARPA, DARPA


What on earth are you really up to?
Immortal synthetic organisms
The X37-B massive secrecy and also earth bound and now the NASA announcement?

Is it just me that's seeing this and feeling that something really wrong is going on?

Now this really reminds me of the replicators from stargate


WE MUST STOP THEM BEFORE THEY FIND OUT THE EXACT COORDINATES OF ATLANTIS!

Sounds like the new environmental suits are ready to be beamed into. Now where are the new candidates to be exited from their current OLD FASHION WORM SUITS.. forgot its ea inhabitants. Waits for the new environmental suit replacer to come flying by


BUT I DONT WANNA SUIT I WANNA BE ME
