That is very interesting, and I have heard this also, just never looked into
nailing it down. It is a subject that I have wanted to explore for a very long time,
perhaps a very good place will be right here in this thread. I will be back in a bit!

Regardless of whether or not the 47th chromosome creates a physical downgrade, or potential upgrade, it's a moot point.

What is important, is that scientists are unlocking what each gene does and is responsible for, and are already manipulating them for cures (One guy in Germany had some Stem Cells in his immune system manipulated, and is now the first man cured of HIV in the world)

They've found the genes responsible for Down Syndrome and are saying they'll be able to have a test for it and a way to fix it.....

And soon enough they'll know how to create 8-foot muscle bound Einstein Super Soldiers.

China's already working on Designer Genius Babies:
China Is Engineering Genius Babies



It’s not exactly news that China is setting itself up as a new global superpower, is it? While Western civilization chokes on its own gluttony like a latter-day Marlon Brando, China continues to buy up American debt and lock away the world’s natural resources. But now, not content to simply laugh and make jerk-off signs as they pass us on the geopolitical highway, they’ve also developed a state-endorsed genetic-engineering project.

At BGI Shenzhen, scientists have collected DNA samples from 2,000 of the world’s smartest people and are sequencing their entire genomes in an attempt to identify the alleles which determine human intelligence. Apparently they’re not far from finding them, and when they do, embryo screening will allow parents to pick their brightest zygote and potentially bump up every generation's intelligence by five to 15 IQ points. Within a couple of generations, competing with the Chinese on an intellectual level will be like challenging Lena Dunham to a getting-naked-on-TV contest.


The race has already begun. Now it's just a matter of time.......Welcome to Humans 3.0 and upward.

Coincidentally, the name of the project contains the word ´tool´.

I wonder what Drunvalo Melchizedek thinks about DARPA´s endeavors.

Thank you for posting, OP.

According to his literature, the ancient Egyptians used to unlock various supernatural talents hidden within themselves by manipulating their chromosomes.

Yeah, i believe this as well.

I think they can be manipulated or unlocked via specific chants, frequencies, sound wave resonance combinations, as well as with certain wavelengths of light.

That's fringe science though, who knows

If they successfully create a being of sufficent superiority The will have to be slaves to military service. You wouldn't want augmented people out in the general populace,they would be incapable of being controlled as we are. The first ones out would be treated horribly anyway just because of what they are.
And the slave thing is a very bad idea because slaves can take over.Especially when they surpass a level of human performance.
I don't think I would put up with people being treated like they were in the 60s again either it pissed me off.
I'll bet the transhumanists are all over this one.

The ability to deliver exogenous DNA to mammalian cell lines is a fundamental tool in the development of advanced therapeutics, vaccines, and cellular diagnostics, as well as for basic biological and biomedical research… The successful development of technologies for rapid introduction of large DNA vectors into human cell lines will enable the ability to engineer much more complex functionalities into human cell lines than are currently possible.


Sounds like super strength, super healing, super senses not so bad on one level.

Never get sick, age slower etc.

But yeah messing in the realm of GOD man should stop playing one.

Somebody's gotta step up. I don't see any divine entities coming up to have a swing at the world's problems. And I wouldn't have a problem with the human species customizing and enhancing themselves to have a try if I wasn't so worried about mankind being mature enough to handle such developments.

There 23 pairs of chromosomes. A "47th" would = Down's Syndrome (if it's No.21 that has the 'spare').

Puts a whole new spin on the affectionate 'Ameritard'...

DARPA tinkering with our building blocks? I can be comfortable with life-saving medical use of it, and with the right restrictions imposed (like no built-to-order kids, etc) But the government already does as it pleases no matter how immoral, so this is one area I'm reluctant to see them tinker with. It reminds me of Star Trek's Eugenics Wars.


Records from this period are fragmented, but what is known is that the wars' roots lie in a group of Human scientists' ambitious attempt to improve the race through selective breeding and genetic engineering. They created a race of "supermen," popularly known as the Augments, who were mentally and physically superior to ordinary men and women. They were five times stronger than the average person, their lung efficiency was 50 percent better than normal, and their intelligence was double that of normal Humans. They also had enhanced senses, including an ability to hear beyond that of Human capabilities.


The entire Eugenics Wars background in the Trek universe is pretty eerie considering our advancements in genetic engineering abilities. Life imitating fiction, or fiction imitating life?

Before we get all Frankenstein, check the source article. They plan to add DNA to human cell lines, not humans.

A cell line, or cell culture looks like this:



It's basically a layer of cells in a petri dish. They have been used for decades to test new drugs, anti-cancer agents and the manufacture of vaccines.

en.wikipedia.org...

While we're a long way off of having a 47 chromosome hybrid walking among us, DARPA does plan to use living cell tissue to help the DoD with "cell-based sensors for chem/biodefense applications". I guess if the cell culture dies or changes, it would alert humans of bio or chemical hazards. They also want to use them to create vaccines against bio-warfare agents maybe?

This is how Atlantis went down. GMO and genetic blueprints. The 2 witnesses, in the spirit, they're Love and Wisdom, but in the matter realm they're DNA. These guys still don't get it, I can pretty much see the same guys doing the same things over and over. The bear is stupid, circles just circles.

We can look forward to being required to take a flue vaccine that incidentally also turns us into more obedient soldiers. At that point there will finally be peace on earth (as it is in heaven).

pandora's box?


Yes, it could be. However, genetic manipulation is inevitable in my opinion. Grant it, I would much rather see anyone else other the DARPA spearheading this research, as we all know where this technology may end up being implemented.


here natural selection is a thing of the past?


Who is to say that an individual(s) who were born to develop genetic engineering are not the product of natural selection in the first place?

I see all human advancement as sprouting from natural selection. All those who live today are the result of some form of natural selection in the past ( assuming you subscribe to the theory of evolution) including the individual(s) who develop this technology.


What could possibly go wrong?


Most Definitely! Especially if the desired applications are being determined by a clandestine and power hungry institution.

However, I see this type of research as a natural evolution as we begin to marry the technological with the biological. Every scientific frontier has its risks.


USA has already succeeded in creating human clones.
These clones are not invincible (they are just like humans), but have no family (parents, spouses, children) to grieve, and can be put on drugs without risk of harming the society.

These clones will be used in future wars. I have a feeling already being used in very small numbers.

SYSTEMS OF NEUROMORPHIC ADAPTIVE PLASTIC SCALABLE ELECTRONICS (SYNAPSE)

Current programmable machines are limited not only by their computational capacity, but also by an architecture requiring human-derived algorithms to describe and process information from their environment. In contrast, biological neural systems, such as a brain, autonomously process information in complex environments by automatically learning relevant and probabilistically stable features and associations. Since real-world problems generally have many variables and nearly infinite combinatorial complexity, neuromorphic electronic machines would be preferable in a host of applications. Useful and practical implementations, however, do not yet exist.

The vision for the Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE) program is to develop electronic neuromorphic machine technology that scales to biological levels. SyNAPSE supports an unprecedented multidisciplinary approach coordinating aggressive technology development activities in the following areas: hardware, architecture, simulation, and environment.

The initial phase of SyNAPSE developed nanometer-scale electronic synaptic components capable of adapting connection strength between two neurons in a manner analogous to that seen in biological systems and simulated the utility of these synaptic components in core microcircuits that support the overall system architecture.

Continuing efforts will focus on hardware development through microcircuit development, fabrication process development, single chip system development, and multi-chip system development. In support of these hardware developments, SyNAPSE seeks to develop increasingly capable architecture and design tools, very large-scale computer simulations of the neuromorphic electronic systems to inform the designers and validate hardware prior to fabrication, and virtual environments for training and testing simulated and hardware neuromorphic systems.

May wanna clear your browser cache if you click on link, just a warning, survey at your own risk.

Putting this together with various other informative facts....about certain research and tech. Wake up.

Not controversial??? Hmmmm.....perhaps it should be, vis a vis the "new and improved" you........complete with narratives mined and induced for a game of musical identity, eta see the other DARPA thread, about inducing, data mining and switching narratives....

Language. It's all in the language. How it's couched, with certain words, a diplomatic representation of what is truly going on. In this way, you are disarmed, distracted and your ego involved.

This program has been ongoing since 2009 at Boston University. It amazes me, still, that people (agreeing with you here in terms of time and what has already been accomplished) are seemingly unaware of how far this horse has gone out of the barn, so to speak, and what that really means for all of us. Although, sometimes, I wonder if it's only me left, and the rest are the singularity????




As far as Hanna goes, and any cloning, how would you like to be labelled a genetic project and "dangerous" while all you were trying to do was live in peace....

This issue is tremendously complicated, multi-faceted and worthy of empathy, for it is what distinguishes us from other life forms, only trying to survive in an exploitative style, no matter the cost. If you have seen that particular movie, about Hanna, you understand what I am saying.

As to the tech I have linked as a research project above, think interface with AI via bioengineering. I don't know about you, but I have enough hell to deal with, without someone adding something I have no control over. Already happened, living through that now.....all I got to say.

They're not trying to create a new species of "Super Human Soldiers" in an effort to take over the world.

With DARPA's luck they'd end up creating an army of mongoloids anyway.

People with down's syndrome, also known as trisomy 21, are born with 47 chromosomes (an extra 21st chromosome to be precise).

What this research is actually trying to accomplish...


The ability to deliver exogenous DNA to mammalian cell lines is a fundamental tool in the development of advanced therapeutics, vaccines, and cellular diagnostics, as well as for basic biological and biomedical research.

they will not win. if you want to win stop playing their game. this need not nesccarilly mean quit your job(though thats the most effective). do the sadhana, rid yourself from compulsion. you will see life completely different. what you once needed will be no more. you will be able to sit and laugh at the trees all day if you want. if you want to be freed fromtheir nonsense first you must free yourself from your own nonsense.you can rise above them. they will crumble, because they are you. the govt, darpa, etc are faceless entities. like nazis following orders simply out of inertia. you need not be bound. each person who frees themselves takes one step for the whole. remember the existance in its true form is all inclusivness. your thoughts your actions you success are all of ours. it is not far out of reach. we can create the society we want to see. the beast is trying its hardest to tell us this isnt true. leaking out false information about its capabalities it doesnt have to scare you. to keep you in your desk. the energies you are comprised of are out of their reach we got this. i wont give up, this body will tire out and die before i quit. when i get there i will give it to everyone i can.
