By Nick Statt – SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture called Neuralink, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company, which is still in the earliest stages of existence and has no public presence whatsoever, is centered on creating devices that can be implanted in the human brain, with the eventual purpose of helping human beings merge with software and keep pace with advancements in artificial intelligence. These enhancements could improve memory or allow for more direct interfacing with computing devices. Musk has hinted at the existence of Neuralink a few times over the last six months or so. More recently, Musk told a crowd in Dubai, “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.” He added that “it’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output.” On Twitter, Musk has responded to inquiring fans about his progress on a so-called “neural lace,” which is sci-fi shorthand for a brain-computer interface humans could use to improve themselves….Read More
Our DNA has “dark matter” of its own: the non-coding DNA that covers about 99 percent of our genetic code.
New techniques utilizing CRISPR created “molecular scissors” that can snip out pieces of non-coding DNA, and may be able to target disease-causing genes.
EDITING THE BODY’S BLUEPRINT – CRISPR-Cas9 is the most advanced and efficient gene editing tool we have. It’s uses, however, have been largely limited to silencing protein-coding genes in the DNA. This leaves out what’s called the DNA “dark matter” — the non-coding DNA that covers about 99 percent of our genetic code. A study published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology may soon change this. The new technique, developed by a team of researchers led by Carlos Pulido, is a software pipeline called CRISPETa. It’s based on a breakthrough tool (which uses CRISPR-Cas9) called DECKO. The tool was recently developed by the Johson lab, and was specifically designed for deleting those pieces of non-coding DNA. DECKO employs two sgRNAs as “molecular scissors” that snip out a piece of DNA. While the concept might seem simple, designing deletion experiments using DECKO was time consuming due to thee lack of software to create the required sgRNAs…..Read More
I invite you into the future. All the world governments have collapsed like a house of cards as the politician’s crimes were brought to the light. Everyone lost all they had in the economic collapse. And today we are faced with a choice of where we will spend all of eternity. In the morning I take my journey to get water from a nearby stream. I have to duck through bushes and take hidden trails through the woods so that the guards won’t see me, but lately, they have been so distracted that moving in and out of the guarded woods has become easier. Some days I sit on a hill to watch all the activity on the roads beneath. It’s my only way of knowing what has become of most of the population. I watch as the ‘enhanced’ humans go about their day. They bustle about like busy bees in a technologically advanced world. They pretend to share and live communally. The last couple decades I witnessed far too many of them sell out. Businesses went under, people lost their family members, and the more they lost, the less they cared until finally, they joined up with the tribe. The tribe is full of lies. It looks beautifully enticing, especially when you are just scraping by like me. But what you have to do to be a part of the tribe makes being poor and hungry look good….Read More
The Guardian — Harvard engineers who launched the world’s biggest solar geoengineering research program may get a dangerous boost from Donald Trump, environmental organizations are warning. Under the Trump administration, enthusiasm appears to be growing for the controversial technology of solar geo-engineering, which aims to spray sulphate particles into the atmosphere to reflect the sun’s radiation back to space and decrease the temperature of Earth. Sometime in 2018, Harvard engineers David Keith and Frank Keutsch hope to test spraying from a high-altitude balloon over Arizona, in order to assess the risks and benefits of deployment on a larger scale. Keith cancelled a similar planned experiment in New Mexico in 2012, but announced he was ready for field testing at a geoengineering forum in Washington on Friday. Read More
December 30th, 1983 Washington Post story claimed ‘mysterious heavenly body’ found in the direction of the Constellation Orion. December 30th, 2016 story from NASA claims: “at aphelion, Planet Nine would be in the general location of the Orion and Taurus constellations.” ANP recently received an interesting email from a reader which began: ALL news is just a distraction from your real problem, Planet X. Still officially ‘undiscovered’, as we see outlined in the stories and videos below, new evidence has emerged that ‘Planet X’ is indeed out there lurking, rebranded ‘Planet Nine’, and confirming some very old news stories. With ‘Planet X’ or ‘Nibiru’ still called ‘conspiracy theory’ or ‘fake news’ by the mainstream media, we asked on ANP back on December 2nd of 2016 “Is The Biggest Cover-Up Of All-Time About To Come Crashing Down?” while reminding you of two 1983 stories, one each from the Washington Post and the New York Times. Well the search for ‘Planet X’ goes on, rebranded in this new BBC News story as the search for ‘Planet Nine’. As ANP reported then, back on January 30th of 1983, the NY Times published a story called “Clues Get Warm In The Search For Planet X” in which they reported: SOMETHING out there beyond the farthest reaches of the known solar system seems to be tugging at Uranus and Neptune. Some gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object that may be the long-sought Planet X. Read More
Reported In 2013 – Australia have approved the license application from Big Pharma company PaxVax that will allow them to intentionally release a GMO vaccine consisting of live bacteria into Queensland, via chemtrails. The Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) says that the vaccine qualifies as a limited and controlled release under section 50A of the Gene Technology Act 2000. Preventdisease.com reports: PaxVax is seeking approval to conduct the clinical trial of a genetically modified live bacterial vaccine against cholera. Once underway the trial is expected to be completed within one year, with trial sites selected from local government areas (LGAs) in Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia. PaxVax has proposed a number of control measures they say will restrict the spread and persistence of the GM vaccine and its introduced genetic material, however there is always a possiblity of these restrictions failing and infecting wildlife and ecosystems.

In 2008, experts surveyed at the Global Catastrophic Risk Conference at the University of Oxford predicted that nanoweapons have a high probability of causing human extinction by the year 2100. Are these experts right? Unfortunately, all the evidence to date suggests they are […] What makes nanoweapons more problematic than nuclear weapons is our potential to lose control over them. For example, consider a nanobot that mimics an innocuous fly. It could be a surveillance or lethal nanoweapon. This may sound like science fiction, but it is not. On Dec. 16, 2014, the United States Army Research Laboratory announced development of a fly drone weighing only a small fraction of a gram. Using DARPA’s Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program, which allows small drones to enter buildings and avoid crashing into objects, the fly drone could… deposit a small, but lethal amount of toxin in the adversary’s food or water. The most lethal toxin known is botulism H. As little as 100 nanograms of botulism H is lethal to humans, who would be unable to smell, taste, or see that amount of toxin. Imagine 50 million fly drones, each able to deliver a lethal toxin. In that quantity, the fly drones become nanoweapons of mass destruction. However, a quantity of that size raises a question, How do we control these nanoweapons of mass destruction? If we lost control, the fly drones could spread beyond the adversary’s boarder and begin killing indiscriminately… Read More
