Openly promoting the great benefits to be gained from transhumanism, although he never labels it as such.
For a long time I was quite puzzled by transhumanism... but not, anymore. The upcoming generations, obsessed with drugs, booze, tobacco, anime and video games, will make this a reality--it is a "natural consequence" of that evolutionary path. Why? Because they may be "human" in the taxonomy sense, but no longer humanitarian. The ethical component has been supplanted by a technological one, where "simulations" of reality have replaced the natural experience of life. That abyss has gotten so wide, that even when homo sapiens fictitius encounters the Natural world, it must be rejected as their mind does not possess the schemas (re: Kant) to comprehend it.
New information that falls within an individual's schema is easily remembered and incorporated into their worldview. However, when new information is perceived that does not fit a schema, many things can happen. The most common reaction is to simply ignore or quickly forget the new information. This can happen on a deep level— frequently an individual does not become conscious of or even perceive the new information. People may also interpret the new information in a way that minimizes how much they must change their schemata. For example, Bob thinks that chickens don't lay eggs. He then sees a chicken laying an egg. Instead of changing the part of his schema that says "chickens don't lay eggs", he is likely to adopt the belief that the animal in question that he has just seen laying an egg is not a real chicken. This is an example of disconfirmation bias, the tendency to set higher standards for evidence that contradicts one's expectations.
Curiously, this is exactly the idea behind camouflage--to make something invisible to the mind, even though the eye sees it clearly. When the mind does not recognize a pattern, nothing gets sent to be consciously processed. This is why people "sense" something may be wrong, but cannot figure out what it is... sensory data is saying, "Danger Will Robinson!" but no schemas from prior experience are being fired, so no recognition of the event occurs--camouflaged.

The transhuman agenda has camouflaged the Natural world, so when fictitius encounters Nature, it is ignored, forgotten or disconfirmed, reinforcing the chemically-induced fantasia, which is then returned to, to nullify the discontinuity. This cycle is repeated, until the only option left is to accept the virtual world, the Matrix, as the only, possible path to "human" evolution. Curiously, it is "everything, but."

I tip my hat to the Great Architect... very clever system.

I ran across some of Ray Kurzweil's "singularity" information while searching for something unrelated, and I cannot help but notice that this direction for humanity is counter-evolutionary, based on the premises of the Reciprocal System.

In the RS, density (to use Ra's term) is a measurement of complexity of motion. That complexity occurs from the compounding and aggregation of motions. In the inanimate realm, we see that as the increasing density of atoms, molecules and aggregates. Larson, in Beyond Space and Time, continued that into two other levels of existence, biological and ethical.

Increasing complexity of matter:
Subatom -> atomic -> molecular -> aggregate

Increasing complexity of levels:
Inanimate -> animate -> ethical

The process of increasing complexity and density is called evolution.

The purpose of Singularity is therefore devolution, moving from the more advanced "animate" stage of complexity, back to an inanimate simulation of the animate. This is analogous to removing the soul of the living organism.
Verner Vinge (1993) wrote:"Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended. [...] I think it's fair to call this event a singularity. It is a point where our models must be discarded and a new reality rules. As we move closer and closer to this point, it will loom vaster and vaster over human affairs till the notion becomes a commonplace. Yet when it finally happens it may still be a great surprise and a greater unknown."
This "new reality" is an artificial reality--no longer connected with Nature, but a Matrix created by mankind, himself. We already see the foundations for it, with the heavy promotion of the Sci-Fi theories of Newton and Einstein (see Gopi's papers and his video on the History of Physics on the RS site) and the conversion of spirituality to New Age, and religion to belief assimilation.

No need for aliens to invade Earth... mankind is well on his way to building his own technological prison.

But I have to wonder why the evolution of consciousness "reflected" off of something, and is essentially doubling-back to devolution? The evolutionary process should be yang/linear--constantly moving forward, but it appears to have become yin/cyclic, looping back to the start. Why?

I'll tell you why.. this version of humans is not able to deal with the next step of evolution due to the "evil" of the twin snakes going back to the Garden of Edin. Evolution must have actually been "evilution" due the insertion of $$. Can't remember where l saw the ape species experiments when $$ was added to the environment... it devolved quickly into chaotic evils basically overriding the natural instincts. Root cause is $$. Guess from that we aren't much better than apes..lol, just a higher level of mental faculties but just can not handle $$. Apparently the experiments, if true, after 8 weeks were decided to be stopped it got so bad...but the $$ was so powerful that the group would not willingly give the $$ back!

Step in right direction opposite to evilution back towards evolution is no money! None. Get rid of it all. Don't see that happening in my lifetime.. but there is still the chance here with this group and some Ubuntu groups are forming and have formef in South Africa and Canada.... so maybe this will break the spell !

If the planet grew with "jumps" then why not the same rules apply to evolution as well? Maybe the cycles has always been there, but not seen as prominent, because humans have evolved enough to recognize the difference in times.

Perhaps TPTB saw or predicted that the evolution has started a new cycle after some time and made preparations for it. The real question remains how to avoid being in that "downward cycle"? Maybe it all is in the history books as relative information.

This comes to mind as well, maybe that is how evolution actually works it is linear and devolution is cyclic, "when you fall, you fall hard, which is easier to do than to get back up".
