Cultocracy introduction :
A recent light hearted article at Futurism.com titled “7 Ways to Die in the Future” , explores as the title suggests , seven different ways a person may die in the future .
The seven ways of dying described in the article are as follows :
1. Boiling from the inside when your off-brand spacesuit springs a leak
2. Getting killed by a sex robot
3. Ceasing to exist when someone unplugs the simulation
4. Impaled on the tusk of a resurrected woolly mammoth at a futuristic zoo
5. The Earth is struck by a six-mile-wide asteroid
6. Perishing in a fiery wreck when internet pranksters hack all the self-driving cars to crash simultaneously
7. Dying in blissful old age after automation and basic income grant you a leisurely life to explore the arts, sciences and hobbies
Number seven sounds tempting and enticing , in a slightly sinister Pied Piperish way .
Increased automation may lead to a basic income , but there is no such thing as a free lunch in the modern world , never mind in any future world .
In my opinion the most likely cause of death in a future world will be a slight twist on number three , which should read as follows :
“Ceasing to exist when someone plugs you into the simulation” .
In a somewhat ironic and paradoxical way , being ‘plugged in’ will lead to immortality , for some at least .
All of this is of course assuming that humanity in its present form still exists in the future .

Cultocracy note :
In a significant move this month the German government announced a ban on the use of glyphosate weedkiller . This maneuver can also be viewed as a symbolic rejection of the corrupt globalist practices of the major multinational corporations who seek to profit from poison . Expect other European countries to follow suit , except for the UK , which will soon exit from the European Union . Or will it ?
It will be interesting to see if the proposed ban has a positive effect on the wildlife in Germany , glyphosate is simply a small piece of the overall picture .
Boris Johnson supports GM food
“Boris Johnson has only just moved into 10 Downing Street, yet he’s already bigging-up genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and speaking out against their regulation – first in his address to the nation as PM and again in his Commons address.”
“The kind of “free trade” deals championed by Johnson and his US counterpart, Donald Trump, will make it easier to export GMOs, protect the intellectual property rights of giant corporations, and lower health and safety standards for consumers. “

Cultocracy note :
The ‘industry’ response to harming insect life for profit is to modify insect life itself . This is their standard business model , a synthetic world sustained only by their own synthetic , poisonous products .
Something DARPA already knows a lot about , although obviously not enough .
Dual purpose research at it’s finest .
“The spring of 2008 was brutal for Europe’s honeybees……beekeepers in Germany’s upper Rhine valley looked on as whole colonies perished. Millions of bees died.”
“Since the EU began phasing out neonics, in 2014, the honeybees’ recovery has not been as dramatic as hoped. Neonics are probably not the biggest factor in the demise of bees, but they are the easiest to outlaw.”
“Another, more controversial, response to the slump in bee populations is in the works. This is the plan to create a more resilient strain of honeybee – a genetically modified superbee.”
“Crispr technology has transformed microbiology in recent years by allowing scientists to copy a desirable part of the DNA strand and insert it directly into the chromosome of the target specimen. Now, with great precision, scientists can remove harmful mutations or unwanted traits, or insert a desired trait.”
“They want to know why bees are so good to each other. Is this instinct to work tirelessly for the good of the hive something learned, or genetic?”
“Beekeepers fear genetic engineering of honeybees will introduce patents and privatisation to one of the last bastions of agriculture that is collectively managed and owned by no one.”
“Insect Allies, a $45m research project sponsored by Darpa, the US Department of Defense’s military research department. It proposes using insects to carry immune-boosting mutations designed to protect crops from drought, flooding, pathogens and bioweapons. In essence, the visiting insects would modify the plant’s genetic makeup.”
“Darpa does not say what kind of insects it plans to use……“
Quantum Computing & Communications
“Many highly sensitive measurement techniques are based on monitoring the interference of waves.”
“The most well-known example is the detection of extremely weak gravitational waves generated by colliding neutron stars and black holes using the interference between two laser beams that are several kilometers long.”
“Many scientists are working on extending this technique to the wave functions of quantum objects since this would permit much more sensitive sensing than is possible using classical waves.”

AI helps to develop Carbon Nanotubes
“A major hindrance to unlocking the vast potential of nanotubes is their multiphase manufacturing process which is extremely difficult to manage.”
“……the authors show that machine learning methods, and, in particular, ANN trained on experimental parameters, such as temperature, gas pressure and flow rate, can help monitor the properties of the carbon nanotube films produced…..”
“……we describe a highly efficient and robust molecular recording and DNA memory platform that uses genomic DNA as an addressable, readable, and writable information storage and computation medium in living cells, much like a hard drive. This platform, called the DNA-based Ordered Memory and Iteration Network Operator (DOMINO), leverages precise DNA writing with CRISPR base editors………”
Giant 5G Drones
“Massive football field sized drones flying in the stratosphere, beaming down toxic 5G radiation into the earth, into the ocean, into our homes, into our bodies.”
“But if the sponsors of the HAWK30 program, tech giant SoftBank of Japan, defense contractor AeroVironment of California and Alphabet, the parent company of Google, have their way that nightmare will become a reality this fall for some Hawai’i residents and eventually for much of the world’s population.”

Manipulating the Brain with a Smartphone
“Here, we describe smartphone-controlled, minimally invasive, soft optofluidic probes and optogenetics with selective manipulation of brain circuits.”
“We demonstrate the use of the probes for the control of the locomotor activity of mice for over four weeks via programmable wireless drug delivery and photostimulation.”
“The device, using Lego-like replaceable drug cartridges and powerful bluetooth low-energy, can target specific neurons of interest using drug and light for prolonged periods.”
“These ‘plug-n-play’ drug cartridges were assembled into a brain implant for mice with a soft and ultrathin probe (thickness of a human hair), which consisted of microfluidic channels and tiny LEDs (smaller than a grain of salt), for unlimited drug doses and light delivery.”
“Controlled with an elegant and simple user interface on a smartphone…..”
“neuroscientists at the Bruchas lab at the University of Washington study brain circuits that control stress, depression, addiction, pain…..”
“The wireless neural device enables chronic chemical and optical neuromodulation that has never been achieved before,”

Cultocracy note :
Front corporations are now tasked with taking the fruits of previously top secret clandestine research projects to market .
This fact further suggests that the technology is now obsolete , at least in deep state terms .
Profit has always been the primary motivation behind the creation of ‘intelligence’ agencies .
It appears that now many such organizations are able to reap the profits for themselves rather than tipping up to their oligarchical sugar daddies in the corporate and financial worlds . Treasonous former state employees are now syndicate partners , an increasingly familiar pattern .
Many ‘intelligence’ agencies have now become fully fledged self sustaining and self funding crime syndicates .
Spooky Facebook Mind Reading Research
“The project is the first to decode question-and-answer speech from brain signals in real time“
“…….a team at the University of California, San Francisco, funded by Facebook Reality Labs, has built a brain-computer interface that accurately decodes dialogue—words and phrases both heard and spoken by the person wearing the device—from brain signals in real time.”
“The lateral surface of the human cortex contains neural populations that encode key representations of both perceived and produced speech……”
“Recent investigations of the underlying mechanisms of these speech representations have shown that acoustic and phonemic speech content can be decoded directly from neural activity in superior temporal gyrus (STG) and surrounding secondary auditory regions during listening.”
“Similarly, activity in ventral sensorimotor cortex (vSMC) can be used to decode characteristics of produced speech……”
“Here we demonstrate real-time decoding of perceived and produced speech from high-density ECoG activity in humans….”
“………we acquired neural activity from high-density ECoG arrays that covered auditory and sensorimotor cortical regions……”
“…..we used rtNSR here to present the audio and visual stimuli, process the neural signals, and perform speech decoding in real-time……..”
“This work was funded by a research contract under Facebook’s Sponsored Academic Research Agreement.”

Further information (impeccable source) :
“Zuckerberg is credited as devising the social media site, and believes he did it without being covertly manipulated by the secret services, who would obviously have no interest in such a mass communication tool.”
“CIA Agent Tom Booker said: “I mean come on, I’ve got shoes older than him and he thinks he invented this incredibly huge communication system and spying tool.”
“This all began when he ‘accidentally’ overhead some sexy girls talking about it at college, then was introduced to some computer experts at a frat party who just happened to be 10 years older than everyone else and wearing suits.”
“He probably thinks he wrote Stairway to Heaven too. You’ve got to admire that little chump’s confidence.”

Remote Sensing & Stimulation
“Perceptual experiences may arise from neuronal activity patterns in mammalian neocortex.”
“This research starts with the principle of optogenetics……”
“Using a virus to gain access to the mice’s DNA, they spliced the algae gene that encodes this protein into their visual cortices, making it so that the neurons in this portion of their brains would respond to light.”
“Now this is where the fun really begins.”
“The team wanted to use their optogenetic tools to manipulate how mice perceived visual information. But to start, they had to know what the animals were seeing in the first place.”
“Then, the authors used optogenetic stimulation to replicate the activation of these neurons. To do so, they shined near-infrared holograms directly onto the visual cortex of a mouse…”

“We often have little difficulty in remembering the chronology of events. We can tell others how much time passed between two events and which one occurred first. Apparently, memories of events in the brain are linked when they occur close together. Part of the medial temporal lobe, the entorhinal cortex seems to play an important role.”
“Events that occurred in temporal proximity are represented by similar activation patterns in the entorhinal cortex….”
Hippocampal fireworks invoke memories
“The ripple is an amazing event in its intensity and timing. It is an orchestrated burst of synchronous activation by about 15% of hippocampal neurons – all firing together within about a tenth of a second. It’s a nerve-cell fireworks display…”
“It was first revealed that they emerge during mental states of sleep and rest, and that they play an important role in rodents’ spatial navigational memory…”
“……….the ripples were synchronized with cortical activation, specifically in the visual centers of the brain…….”
Reversing Mental Ageing
“Piezo1 – a protein found on the cell surface, which informs the cell whether the surrounding environment is soft or stiff.”
“…..we were able to delete Piezo1 in the OPCs within the aged rat brains, which lead to the cells becoming rejuvenated and once again able to assume their normal regenerative function……”

Russian Doll Nanoparticles
“The team will then use tiny “Russian doll-like” particles — a technology developed at MIT — to deliver those combinations to brain tumors.”
“Not only are the nanoparticles able to access hard-to-reach areas of the brain, they have also been designed to carry multiple cancer drugs at once by holding them inside layers, similarly to the way Russian dolls fit inside one another.”
Carbon Nano Neurons
“Carbon nanotubes able to take on the desired shapes thanks to a special chemical treatment, called crosslinking and, at the same time, able to function as substrata for the growth of nerve cells, finely tuning their growth and activity.”
“We know from previous research that nerve cells grow well on carbon nanotubes…”
“…through this treatment we can modulate the activity of neurons…”
“These materials can also regulate the communication between neurons.”
Wearable plaster sized electronics
“Wearable human-machine interfaces – devices that can collect and store important health information about the wearer, among other uses – have benefited from advances in electronics, materials and mechanical designs.”
“The device allows the wearer to move naturally and is less noticeable than wearing a Band-Aid……..”
“Everything is very thin, just a few microns thick……”
“It has the potential to work as a prosthetic skin for a robotic hand or other robotic devices, with a robust human-machine interface that allows it to automatically collect information and relay it back to the wearer. “
Electronic Skin for Robots
“Human‐interactive soft robotic technologies have potential in numerous applications such as automatic home‐use robots, industrial systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) .”
“Robotic technologies make society more convenient and comfortable, especially for manufacturing processes.”
“To mimic a human hand, the pneumatic balloon soft‐robotic hand was designed to actuate using air pressure.”
“Using silver (Ag) thread interconnections, under bending and inflation (i.e., stretching) conditions, the resistance change of the sensors can be stably measured as functions of the tactile force and temperature.”

Cyborg Snippets :
How the CIA taught me to smile
“I’ve chosen to turn my son into a cyborg and change the definition of what it means to be human. But do my son’s engineered superpowers make him more human, or less?”
“Before this project, I assumed I’d spend a long neuroscience career sticking electrodes into brains. But watching our algorithms learn such a foundationally human task hooked me on studying how natural and artificial intelligence can work together.”
Cultocracy note :
Traditional robotics are being researched to provide a ‘home’ for artificial intelligent systems .
Nanorobotics is a much more challenging field and relates to micro machines sized down the cellular level and smaller .
In the future both will only be limited by the imagination .

Robotic Thread in the Brain
“MIT engineers have developed a magnetically steerable, thread-like robot that can actively glide through narrow, winding pathways, such as the labrynthine vasculature of the brain.”
“Over the past few years, the team has built up expertise in both hydrogels — biocompatible materials made mostly of water — and 3-D-printed magnetically-actuated materials that can be designed to crawl, jump, and even catch a ball, simply by following the direction of a magnet.”
“In this new paper, the researchers combined their work in hydrogels and in magnetic actuation, to produce a magnetically steerable, hydrogel-coated robotic thread, or guidewire, which they were able to make thin enough to magnetically guide through a life-size silicone replica of the brain’s blood vessels.”
“This research was funded, in part, by the Office of Naval Research, the MIT Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies, and the National Science Foundation (NSF).”
Insect Apocalypse in US
“The toxicity loading of insecticides on agricultural land and surrounding areas has increased by approximately 50-fold over the last two decades producing both direct and indirect effects on associated ecosystems.”
“The neonicotinoid insecticides, in particular imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam, are primarily responsible for this increased toxicity loading….”
“This increase in toxicity loading is consistent with the reduction in beneficial insect and insectivorous bird populations observed in recent years.”

“Over the past several years, microplastic particles have repeatedly been detected in sea-water, drinking water, and even in animals.”
“………microplastic particles can apparently be transported over tremendous distances by the atmosphere and are later washed out of the air by precipitation, particularly snow.”
“………It’s readily apparent that the majority of the microplastic in the snow comes from the air…….”
“To date there are virtually no studies investigating the extent to which human beings are subject to microplastic contamination.”
“……..plastics were identified in over 90 percent of the rainwater samples they took at eight different sites, most of which are between Denver and Boulder, Colorado.”
“The team found mostly strands of plastic – they look suspiciously like microfibres from synthetic materials…….”
“It’s in the rain, it’s in the snow. It’s a part of our environment now.”
Health & Medical
Vaccine for Melanoma
“Researchers at Tel Aviv University have developed a novel nano-vaccine for melanoma.”
“The researchers harnessed tiny particles, about 170 nanometers in size, made of a biodegradable polymer. Within each particle, they “packed” two peptides—short chains of amino acids, which are expressed in melanoma cells.”
“The nanoparticles acted just like known vaccines for viral-borne diseases,” “They stimulated the immune system of the mice, and the immune cells learned to identify and attack cells containing the two peptides—that is, the melanoma cells.”
Carbon nanotubes heal the heart
“Thin, flexible fibers made of carbon nanotubes have now proven able to bridge damaged heart tissues and deliver the electrical signals needed to keep those hearts beating. “
“Researchers in EPFL’s Microsystems Laboratory are now working on a biodegradable implant that would release a local anesthetic on-demand over several days.”
“They developed a tiny biodegradable electronic circuit, made from magnesium, that could be heated wirelessly from outside the body. “
Flouride conspiracy now fact (ish)
“A 1 milligram daily increase in fluoride intake was associated with a 3.7-point drop in children’s IQ, they found.”
“The scientists observed that a 1 milligram-per-liter increase in urine fluoride predicted a drop in IQ of 4.5 points in young boys. When the researchers examined the urine of mothers who had daughters, however, fluoride had no association with IQ.”
“……the journal subjected the paper to additional scrutiny. This included multiple statistical reviews…”
Tergeted Drug Delivery
“The new approach is based on the use of tiny magnetic particles enclosed within a tiny hollow bubble of lipids (fatty molecules) filled with water, known as a liposome. The drug of choice is encapsulated within these bubbles, and can be released by applying a magnetic field……”
“We wanted a system that could deliver a drug with temporal precision, and could eventually target a particular location…..”

“The survey was advertised through Dutch swinger websites…..”
“More than four out of 10 respondents (44%; 443) said they used drugs during sex.”
“……the researchers had no information on the swingers who didn’t respond to the survey.”
“Ninety-four percent considered drug use to be pleasurable.”
“The most reported negative effect was feeling tired…..“
