US Army turning Science Fiction into Science Fact

The US Army is working on project’s that at one time would have been deemed the realm of Science Fiction.  Gizmodo reports that top Army Scientists are working on
  • Regenerating body parts on “nano-scaffolding”.  Growing back body parts, both internal organs and limbs, using molecular-sized particles that act as nano-scaffolding for the human cells to grow, dissolving after the organ has regenerated.
  • Telepathy through electronic impulses in the scalp.  Devices that will translate one soldier’s thoughts into electrical signals that can be beamed to other soldiers, to help in stealth operations.
  • Self-aware virtual photo-realistic soldiers that can be deployed in the battlefield through “quantum ghost imaging”
  • A project to erase memories

Anyone familiar with the military will agree that if these are the Projects that the Army are telling us about, then the Top Secret Projects must be even more amazing.  The really big question is: will these technologies benefit all humans, or will an elite use these God like tools to enslave humanity and empower itself?  It seems an obvious answer from the state of affairs today.  Already the elite 1% of this planet use existing tech to boss and coral the other 99%, why should we expect anything less of them as The Singularity draws nearer?
What would it mean to have humans that can regrow body parts?  What would it mean if you could beam your thoughts to another person?  This would surely herald in a new human, no longer Homo Sapien, but Cyber Sapien .  These humans would be vastly more powerful then then the outdated model (us).  And these kinds of technological leaps are only going to start getting bigger and more often.
So it is critical that we ask the right questions now, and not let the cultural and societal/political paradigm shifting capabilities of High Tech catch us unawares.  Some poignant questions are:

  • Can we ensure that tools like the ones above will be used to heal the sick worldwide, no matter the cost?
  • Can we ensure that everyone on Earth has clean air, water, and free power?
  • Can we create “Green” Technology and Energy?  Meaning the production and waste disposal are 100% sustainable?
  • Can we create “Green” Technology and Energy Infrastructures that fuel an economic explosion?
  • Can the ease of information and knowledge availability melt away age old divisions like racism & sexism?
  • Will the world of our grandchildren resemble the world of our grandparents?
Now is the time to begin ensuring that the trajectory of our launch is on the proper coordinates.  If out of the diversity of our time, Oneness is to Emerge, then the people who are alive now must forget their petty differences and come together to Heal and Honor this Planet and this Time.  The Torch is passing from one generation to the next, and it is our duty to stoke and guard it’s Ancient Flame.
