In the countdown to the release of the highly anticipated documentary “INHUMAN: THE NEXT AND FINAL PHASE OF MAN IS HERE” (tentatively scheduled for release on August 15), SkyWatch TV and SkyWatch Magazine will be running an exclusive online series on transhumanism and the dawn of the Human Hybrid Age, starting with the entry below. This extensive multi-year project is not fiction or a mockudrama but a new investigative documentary from the internationally acclaimed team at SkyWatch TV and the new production company Defender Films. ‘Inhuman’ will take viewers across the globe to unveil for the first time how breakthrough advances in science, technology, and philosophy—including cybernetics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, synthetic biology and the new CRISPR–Cas 9 gene-editing technology—are poised to create mind-boggling game-changes to everything we have known until now about Homo sapiens.
As astonishing technological developments push the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation (which promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human), an intellectual and fast-growing cultural movement known as Transhumanism intends to use these powerful new fields of science and technology as tools to radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps—as Professor Joel Garreau, Lincoln Professor of Law, claims—our immortal souls.
The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now underway unapologetically forecasts a near future that will be dominated by a new species of unrecognizably ‘superior’ humans. Applications under study now will make this dream a reality—funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world. As viewers will learn, these applications include: rewriting human genetics, combining human and animal DNA, and interfacing our brains with strong artificial intelligence systems. As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to challenge bioethics in ways that are historically, sociologically and theologically unprecedented. Without comprehending what is quickly approaching in related disciplines of research and development, vast numbers of individuals could soon be paralyzed by the most fantastic—and far-reaching—implications. The destiny of each individual—as well as the future of their families—depends on their knowledge of this new paradigm, an unprecedented time in earth’s history already being called the “Hybrid Age.”
