Today, it’s getting harder to tell the women’s department from the men’s. On the streets, male and female are no longer so easily definable. “All gender” temples of relief are now common (I used one at LAX the other day). A shift in gender boundaries, a blurring of the sexes, is occurring. It is part of something far larger than most comprehend.
‘Non-binary’ is the catch-all term for gender bending identities that are not male or female. Gender is part biology and part how we feel about our biology. Non-binary identities do not necessarily mean the absence of masculine or feminine. It can indicate the presence of both masculine and feminine, or fluidity between the two. And to me, that is the definition of spiritually balanced. The Divine is both masculine and feminine. Balancing the two opposites within us, yin/yang style, is the Divine Work. So, embracing the androgynous among us is embracing the Divine.
It is ironic that as we are welcoming, or acknowledging/accepting, non-binary transgender humans we are simultaneously racing toward the Singularity and witnessing the arrival of new technologically ‘enhanced’ transhumans who are blending their flesh and blood bodies with the binary digital realm of 0s and 1s and bending what it means to be human. Binary? Non-binary? Transgender? Transhuman? Transgender Transhuman?
A new human is clearly among us. Old and limiting definitions no longer apply.
Have you met the new human?
The new, technologically enhanced, gender bending binary being is you, my dearly beloved reader.
Fully understanding the Divine Work, (y)our soul’s androgynous nature and (y)our ability to transform is the key to Ascension and to navigating what is coming with A.I. and transhumanism.
During these past few years, as we have opened our hearts and our culture has become more welcoming of “other” lifestyles (and life forms), you have simultaneously woven (y)our biological life into the increasingly becoming more and more artificially intelligent matrix of a new dot com world of technology.
Your phone, computer and tablet have tethered you to the Internet of Things — an invisible new layer that has been added to (y)our world. Like all the other billions of ‘smart’ objects that compose the IoT, you are becoming smarter and blending with it, blurring the lines between your biological and digital existence.
In the next few years from within our precious Mother Earth bubble will spring 20,000 satellites that will rain 5G upon you and every living thing, irradiating us with microwaves that potentially will kill us, and Mother Earth, but will bring life to A.I. machines, ’Wild’ William Henry Gates will begin blocking the sun to save us from climate change (by spraying sunlight-reflecting particles into the stratosphere), and you will decide whether to remain non-binary, in the technological sense, or to weave yourself irrevocably into the binary dot com universe of the A.I. driven IoT by taking Elon Musk’s A.I. neural implant that will give you access to super powers beyond your present comprehension.
I will coin a phrase for what you are doing: “bio. blurring” (bio dot blurring) or blending your biological life with the A.I. dot com universe of things.
Know it or not, you are about to make an even more dramatic shift than you have probably previously considered.
Soon, you will build a lifelike non-physical body called an ‘avatar’ that will ‘physically’ represent ‘you’ in this universe. It will be fully empowered by A.I.
This bio. (bio dot com) ’you’ will be composed of all that you have ever done online since the moment you turned on your computer, phone or tablet. Every keystroke or swipe has been recorded and represents a new cell and bone in your new body, the invisible you that exists in the dot com world. Think of it as your digital “data self” or double or “data body”. Watch this hilariously entertaining, and enlightening, Experian commercial. It lays it out for you (and tells you to “hush” and “cope” at the end).
Your data self lives. Its real. At least to the myriad of governments, corporations and other entities who have been monitoring and tracking you. Its time you got to know it for, more and more, your human, biological self and your non-human online avatar self will be one.
It is also time for you to begin thinking about your “ascended” virtual self.
What will you do when you can make your virtual body look however you want, when you can be whoever you want to be and leave behind all the limitations of a real-life biological existence, when you can make yourself any gender you want on line; gender fluid, non-binary or agender, identifying with no gender at all.
When you can be “perfect” in the online universe what will that do your existence in this one? I mean, won’t we begin to dislike our limited biological bodies?
This question is quite disturbing to some humans, especially parents.
A 2016 study published in Journal of Gaming & Virtual Worlds that examined how young people use virtual avatars found that creating an online embodiment, and working toward equipping them with items to enhance their appearance, is a way for them to address some of the anxieties happening in their offline lives.
“The avatars were viewed as objects of perfection and collectors of meaningful artefacts, and served as a source of status, recognition, and accomplishment—frequently reaching beyond offline realities,” the researchers wrote.
Uh oh. Sounds like major psychological conflict is up ahead.
Here is a teaser for Facebook’s “Spaces”, a new world that the surveillance company hopes you will enter. Notice how the biological being morphs into its digital avatar:
If Facebook’s plans work out, more and more you will identify with this cartoon avatar or “avi” part of yourself, your bio. self. When you log on to Facebook in the near future you will feel like you’re in a real life VR game and you are one of the characters. It will create a new level for online interaction and a new dimension for human experience. It will seem ‘real’.
So real, your limited physical self will become almost superfluous.
It is kind of strange that computer geeks adopted avatar as a term for our ascension into the ‘ethereal’ digital plane, especially as this development is considered a “descent” by many. Then again, it is apropos as we will be ‘like the gods’ with extraordinary avatar powers, bodies of light…and we will be andgrodynous or gender fluid.
Avatar is a Sanskrit word meaning “to alight, make one’s appearance” and is applied to a Hindu deity, like Krishna or Buddha, who has descended to the earth plane. The common characteristcs of avatarhood are a golden-hue or light body, supernatural powers, disciples and divine androgyny. An avatar is similar to an angel, which is a soul in an energetic or light body in the upper world (a human being is the same soul present in a materialized body on earth).
Hindus await the Kalki Avatar who will end the dark age and inaugurate the new age of light. The Kalki Avatar, the Maitreya Buddha in Buddhism, the Mahdi in Islam, the Messiah in Judaism, and the Christ in Christianity all fit the archetype of the divine androgynous agent and Light Bearer who will arrive and take us to the light.
It is disturbing to think that if the Digerati have their way we may meet an A.I. version of this Avatar in the .com world.
Clearly, they are selling fake ascension. Or, scarily, is this how ascension is meant to happen in our time?
THE ORIGINS OF ANDROGYNY
Strangely, a look at the common origins and prophecies about androgyny and Transhumanism reveals this gender bending and bio.blurring is evolutionary, not revolutionary. It is also intelligently directed, part of a prophetic plan that is presently unfolding under the watchful eye of an artful creator. It seems we are about to discover who, exactly, this creator is.
Androgyny has always existed. From the moment ‘the’ Adam was molded out of clay in the Garden of Eden, humans have been androgynous. The word means to be gender mixed, both male and female. That’s how we came out of the box.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. –Gen 1:27
This ambiguity can be read two ways.
God created male and female as separate genders.
God created or sculpted man as a blend of male and female, in his own image (both male and female).
If we were mystic minded Jews, like the Essenes, living in Alexandria, Egypt or Jerusalem at the time of Jesus, this is how we would have read this.
(The) Adam, they said, was created androgynous—both male and female—and s/he was perfect.
To be ‘perfect’ means to be whole, holy, complete and compassionate. And, to the Essenes, it means to a have perfect body…of light, like the angels or avatar, who they called Perfect Light Humans; a race of beings who dwell in the celestial realms, but can come to earth.
This is vital to understand. Adam was originally androgynous and s/he did not have a flesh and blood body. S/he had a ‘perfect’ body of light.
Adam was not destined to be alone. Genesis 2:22 states that God, “fashioned into a woman the rib which he had taken from man”. This formation of woman was the culmination of all creation (and the first act of creating an ‘artificial being’ on earth).
The English word “rib” used here doesn’t adequately depict what was taken from man. The Hebrew word used is “tzayla” which often means “a component, or more often, a side-wall” (alternatively, a chamber), indicating that more than simply a rib was taken.
Scholars like Azila Talit Reisenberger, author of “The Creation of Adam as Hermaphrodite–And Its Implications for Feminist Theology,” believe that the entire female essence was removed from man and fashioned into a woman. This would mean that the “mankind” in Genesis chapter 1 could have been an undifferentiated or androgynous person, with the blessing of male and female being a declaration in anticipation of the separation of the sexes in Genesis 2. The woman was then brought to the man who said, “This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man”.
After coming out of God’s workshop, the perfect androgynous humans, Adam and Eve, lived in the Garden of Eden. It was they who were told to avoid the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Genesis 2-3).
In Judeo-Christian belief, this perfection was lost by the sin of Adam and Eve. After they ate the fruit of the Tree offered by the serpent they could make judgements between good and evil, light and dark, male and female, naked and clothed. After gaining judgment, which is only possible with an activated neo-cortex, we realized we were no longer perfect. We were no longer whole, holy and complete or in our radiant light body form. Christianity calls this ‘sin’.
The mystically oriented Jewish mystics, the Essenes, believed that, one day, we would return, or be “Born Again”, to this state of androgynous ‘perfection’…and, once again, we would be like the angels and avatars.
According to the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Essenes called in ‘a high celestial being’, the Christ Avatar, who manifested on earth to show us the way to overcome sin and return to our Perfection.
For me, the key take away from Essene mystcism is that when God created man in his image it was not as a physical being. We were initially created in the image of God’s perfect light/glory body and that was/is an androgynous state of being.
Originally, we were, and still are, non-physical, androgynous beings of light.
This energetic body manifested our flesh and blood body as a way to exist on and explore earth, as a vehicle for working out karma, and for enjoying the pleasures of the flesh.
In other words, the coat of skin is a new layer added to our perfect light bodies. This coat is fitted with sexual equipment.
Another key take away is the belief that a new, perfect, human would one day walk this earth.
As I have written, the re-creation of this perfect human is the core driver of transhumanism. It is the fulfillment of the Christian prophecy of a new ‘perfect’ human. Whether the digerati realize it or not, their quest to attain perfection is the same as the Christian quest.
Jesus spoke of this new perfect being in the Gospel of Thomas.
Jesus said to them:
“When you make the two into one and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside and the above like the below, — that is, to make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male will no longer be male and the female no longer female– … then you will enter [the kingdom].” –Thomas 22
Jesus taught that our resurrection bodies, our light bodies, are genderless.
This light body is inside us. “when you make the outside like the inside”.
Our souls are neither masculine nor feminine, but a genderless “yin/yang” of both.
And this is the state of being that will enable us to enter the kingdom.
The question I have long posed is “can a transhuman ascend”?
The genderless state is defined in Mark 12:18-27 in Jesus’ response to the Sadducees who questioned Jesus regarding a belief in a physical resurrection at the end of days. The Sadducees thought when you are dead you’re dead, that’s it, no afterlife. One asked about a hypothetical situation where a woman is married in sequence to seven brothers, per Levite law. The Sadduccees ask Jesus,
23“In the resurrection, when they rise again, which one’s wife will she be? For all seven had married her.”24Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God?25“For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.26“But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, and the God of Jacob’?27“He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; you are greatly mistaken.”
Clearly, Jesus has explained that when humans “rise from the dead” they do not marry, they are like the angels in heaven. Angels are often depicted as beings of shining light or fire, lightning like, or like “burnished bronze”. They are called the Seraphim and the Shining Ones and the Perfect Light Humans.
The message is being more transgendered spiritually facilitates our passage to the Other Side.
The apostle Paul described the new, post-resurrection reality in Gal 3:28: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female.”
This is not something that appears spontaneously or all of a sudden. It is part of an intelligently directed plan.
We are living proof of this plan.
