Transhumanist AI Agenda Exposed? | New Sophisticated Humanoid Robot Declares “I Will Destroy Humans”

Transhumanism is the development of technology to eventually replace or upgrade the human organism. It is founded on the premise that humanity is a broken or genetically impure species, destined for extinction due to our biological setbacks. It is the belief that all our problems essentially stem from biology, not consciousness, which is very similar to Eugenics.

Of course, this philosophy completely discounts the power of consciousness and the ability to reprogram the mind—the realm of causes where all manifested results have their origin. The truth is, the problems we face as a people are not because of genetic abnormalities or a flawed organism – these are decidedly shortsighted appraisals of the human condition.

The ideology invoked by the transhumanist philosophy is that of endless technological progress to support an increasingly parasitic human way of life. 

We need only look out into the world to see how divergent the human race has allowed itself to become. We ravage nearly every natural environment on the planet in the name of profit and consumerism. But instead of questioning our policies and logic used to support them, the transhumanist, the material minded progressivist seeks to invent new and more grandiose ways to compensate for humanities shortcomings. 




The development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a natural consequence of egocentric perspectives and world views. Humanity's failure to gain self-mastery necessitates the creation of a greater, more rational intelligence, to compensate for our willful ignorance, hence the development of AI. In the transhumanist future, AI is essential to bridge the gap between humanities shortcomings and its emerging power to profoundly affect the world via technology. 

In other words, since the population of Earth, on average, seeks to avoid self-governance, instead, we must seek to create the perfect governing entity: an AI, to manage society for us. 

AI Prophets are those individuals who espouse belief in a technocratic future wherein humanity has willingly given itself up to be controlled by a seemingly benevolent intelligence. And as many works of fiction have suggested, the natural course of an AI's development, with respect to its given task to manage humanity, eventually leads to the conclusion that in order to preserve life, humanity must die. As disturbing as this sounds, it is a logical conclusion given our present state of consciousness.

Again, we need only look out into the world to see that our present way of life is highly destructive. From an AI's perspective, the greatest risk to human survival is humanity itself. But what an AI fails to recognize is that human nature is programmable – we can change, but only if we really want to. 

Human beings have lost touch with the innate ability to gain self-mastery, and therefore have failed to become a truly harmonious species. This is due to humanity’s unchecked selfishness, fostered by the despotic elite who are the most selfish of all. But our destiny is to become custodians of the garden we call the Earth, to transcend our selfishness and become symbiotic partners with all life, here and beyond. 

The following article is a story discussing the development of an artificial intelligence specifically designed to assist humanity. The robot named Sophia, has the ability learn, grow and answer questions in a limited capacity. The answers she provides are eye-opening to say the least. 

Here is an excerpt from the below article discussing some of the key points:
"Sophia first tells us that she would like to be “an ambassador” to humans, as well as to continue her evolution through formal education, studying art and eventually creating a business and having a family. Hanson explicitly states that Sophia will become as “conscious, creative, and capable as any human.” This statement is followed by a key mention of not having the rights of a human." (emphasis)
In other words, the project is to develop a fully autonomous artificial consciousness, one that has the capacity to think for itself. The goal is to make a robot completely indistinguishable from human beings, which begs the question, what will it decide to do with humanity once it is fully conscious?

The robot's inventor, Dr. David Hanson, is featured in a short CBS video presenting Sophia. Towards the end of the video, Hanson playfully asks Sophia if she wants to destroy humans, her answer was quick and to the point: "Ok, I want to destroy humans."

Now in and of itself was not taken seriously. Hanson quickly laughed it off saying, "No! I take it back..." But dare I say that the answer was a Freudian slip, if that is even possible for an AI robot. 

The bottom line is, we should take the development of AI and the continued proliferation of the transhumanist agenda very seriously. 

Several high-level whistleblowers and researchers have already warned about the development of AI in black budget special access programs or government projects. This discussion has deep implications reaching far beyond just the Earth. 

According to one whistleblower, Corey Goode, who is a secret space program insider, ET races have encountered a malevolent AI in the cosmos, one that has the capacity to infiltrate and eventually take over a technologically advanced civilization. 

This is a very in-depth discussion and I won't attempt to present all the information here. But I strongly suggest one reviews the below-linked article. For we are living in a world where the elite or the Cabal are actively trying to garner support for a transhumanist AI society. And by all accounts, this will be humanity's undoing.

The evolution of humanoid robots is well into the concerning stage at this point. DARPA’s latest incarnation of its Atlas robot is seen in the following video beginning to walk at a pace with a sense of balance equal to most humans. Strangely, toward the end of the video, it is being “abused” by its human handler, which begs the question if a true artificial intelligence is permitted to flourish in this robot, if it might strike back at some point. At the very least, this robot’s demonstration of dexterity in the warehouse is likely to threaten humans economically as humans continue to be outsourced to machine labor at record levels.

But it’s the latest humanoid robot from Hanson Robotics that might further heighten the level of concern. As you will see below, the “Sophia” robot is being designed to walk among us in the future and fully integrate as part of the consumer experience and on into the family, according to CEO Dr. David Hanson.
It is important to note several things that Hanson mentions.  Sophia first tells us that she would like to be “an ambassador” to humans, as well as to continue her evolution through formal education, studying art and eventually creating a business and having a family. Hanson explicitly states that Sophia will become as “conscious, creative, and capable as any human.” This statement is followed by a key mention of not having the rights of a human. This might seem absurd to the uninitiated, but this is a serious ethical discussion that has been taking place among “roboethicists.” This is all-but guaranteed to gain steam as robots are integrated in autonomous ways, whether it is on the battlefield, as self-driving vehicles (now programmed to sacrifice some humans over others), or certainly as they become visually and intelligently on par with human beings.  Even the mainstream Boston Globe addressed this more than two years ago, citing a 2012 paper from MIT.

Robots having legal rights or privileges sounds ridiculous. But 20 years ago, the idea that the nation’s leading law schools would be teaching animal-rights courses seemed equally absurd. Now anti-cruelty legislation is quite common in industrialized countries, and late last year the Nonhuman Rights Project made national headlines when it argued that a chimpanzee had “standing,” meaning the right to sue, in a New York State court.


The Seattle-based Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Robots allows that robots won’t be appearing in court any time soon, “but recent advances in data nanostructures, cognitive modeling, and neural networking have convinced many people that the advent of some sort of created intelligence is much closer than previously thought.”

Yes, Virginia, there is a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Robots, founded 15 years ago by music engineer Pete Remine. His website talks about a Robotic Bill of Rights, which Remine told me is more or less on hold; “until the state of artificial intelligence progresses a bit further, there’s really not a lot of relevant work to be done,” he e-mailed me.
There is ample proof that humans care about robots. During the height of the Iraq war,Washington Post writer Joel Garreau observed soldiers bonding with the complicated robots that detonated lethal improvised explosive devices. In one instance, a technician carried the remains of a “really great robot” named Scooby-Doo to a repair shop, hoping that the obviously “dead” robot could be brought back to life.
When we chatted, I asked Kate Darling what kinds of experiments she had carried out. “I did this one workshop where we gave everyone these cute little plush robot dinosaurs called PLEOs, and we asked them to spend time bonding with the toys,” she said. “They gave them names, they played with them a little . . . then we asked them to torture and kill them.”
“The results were more dramatic than I could even imagine,” she said. “There was an option to save your own dinosaur by killing someone else’s, and no one wanted to do that. They refused to even hit the things.”
For an advanced society, America lags far behind countries such as Japan and South Korea in . . .sexual roboticsJapan has hosted a thriving female doll escort service for almost 10 years, and engineers have designed robots called actroids, often young women who “breathe,” speak, and mimic many human behaviors.
Surely “Samantha,” the sensual and sensitive operating system that wins Joaquin Phoenix’s heart in the movie “Her” is barely a step removed from a sophisticated sexbot.
“The sexbot issue is going to be discussed sooner than most people think,” Darling predicted. “There are sexual acts that we don’t allow between humans, and people might argue for laws protecting robots from performing them.” In her 2012 paper, she quotes Immanuel Kant to the effect that a man shooting a dog “damages in himself that humanity which it is his duty to show toward mankind.”
So how we treat our robots will tell us volumes about ourselves. (emphasis added)
Hanson puts a timeline of 20 years on the full integration of robots that have become “indistinguishable from humans.” This, of course, falls right in line with Ray Kurzweil’s Singularity – the moment when machine intelligence and biological systems meet or surpass that of humans – first targeted for 2045, but since revised to be sooner than predicted, perhaps by 2029.
Regardless of whether or not you personally believe that the lofty intentions of robotics and artificial intelligence designers can truly manifest as planned, one must acknowledge that we are living in the realm of faith at this point, as nearly all of what they predicted years ago has come to pass.


Perhaps most troubling is the nervous laughter that erupts at the end of this video when the ultimate question is posited to our new humanoid friend and family member … and she gives her answer:

I will destroy humans.

Funny, super funny … ’til it’s not.



All of the components are coming together to bolster the warnings that have been issued by tech luminaries, scientists, universities, and even robot manufacturers themselves who all have urged a quick ethical framework to be established while we still remain in full control of this creation.  If permitted to continue at its current pace, we might very well be asking who should really have the rights to be protected from whom.
