It was Ray Kurzweil who famously forecasted in his turn of the century futuristic novel ‘the singularity is near: when humans transcend biology’ that biohacking and life extension was at hand as soon as AI could combine all human intelligence, aka the moment of singularity.

Although AI Is not a reality yet some two decades later, extreme biohacking (the improvement of the human body through technology and medicine) is already all the rage in Silicon Valley.

Though the state-of-the-art platforms on which cures and upgrades can be ordered are still very secretive, it is an established fact that Mr. Bill Maris, the founding CEO of Google Ventures, Alphabet’s venture-capital arm, convinced CEO Larry Page and president Sergey Brin back in 2013 to launch Calico, Google’s billion-dollar, super-secret effort to cure aging and ‘defy death,’ which was the start of the bio-hack culture.

When rumor abounded of this new fad, Mr. Maris explained that when he saw his father die of a brain tumor, it changed him: “My thoughts can turn to dark things when I’m alone.” He, like so many, feared the end that awaits us all.

Peter Thiel, the founder of Paypal and many other tech companies, is also a believer. The current adviser to US President Donald Trump is rumored to have inserted the blood of younger men into his own body to stop aging. Whether it works we will know in fifty years or so.

Believers in bio-hacking think that by merging your body with robots, or become part cyborg if you will, can help you become an ultra-human. Even current Tesla CEO Mr. Elon Musk is convinced that in order to compete with AI, humans will ultimately have to develop into part cyborgs.

Another adamant believer of the technological possibilities is Sean Parker, the former Facebook president, who during an interview last November admitted to seeing the future like this: “Because I’m a billionaire, I’m going to have access to better healthcare, so… I’m going to be like 160 and I’m going to be part of this class of immortal overlords.”

Now already, there are rumored to exist hospitals in Switzerland where you can easily obtain blood transfusions of younger men allowing a total cleanse of your inner workings. Some billionaires are rumored to have been going for years on end. What is going to be compelling is when you see the first known ‘old’ human, known to normally be aged 70 or 80, who looks 30 but has never had any plastic surgery.

Experts agree that the cost that will come with it means it will only remain accessible to the super-rich. And thus, in about 50 years from now, futurists predict that a new breed of men will rise up, the so-called ‘immortals’ who will extend their lifespan to 150 or so thanks to genetic engineering and extreme tech.

The 2013 visionary movie ‘Elysium’ was not that far off after all.

The devil is in the details. He'll be awaiting all those who defy our creator. As told by the prophets, no mane shall cheat death, save those who trust in the word of the Lord.

Since HG Wells may have speculated and written much on the subject of AI. To date all metal, mechanical and a computer for a brain. No free thought. AI will always be just that Artificial Intelligence. We on the other hand, living, breathing mostly intelligent. The way muslim sare breading we may never make it.
