Future Imperative

What if technology were being developed that could enhance your mind or body to extraordinary or even superhuman levels -- and some of these tools were already here? Wouldn't you be curious?

Actually, some are here. But human enhancement is an incredibly broad and compartmentalized field. We’re often unaware of what’s right next door. This site reviews resources and ideas from across the field and makes it easy for readers to find exactly the information they're most interested in.


The future is coming fast, and it's no longer possible to ignore how rapidly the world is changing. As the old order changes -- or more frequently crumbles altogether -- I offer a perspective on how we can transform ourselves in turn... for the better. Nothing on this site is intended as legal, financial or medical advice. Indeed, much of what I discuss amounts to possibilities rather than certainties, in an ever-changing present and an ever-uncertain future.

A Scientific Perspective on Some "Unscientific" Phenomena -- Long, MA, Mind, Myst, Psych, Rev

One thing that conventional science sometimes has a hard time doing is taking a serious look at "mysterious phenomena" that everyone knows exist but which do not fit into most accepted paradigms. For example, for a long time few western scientists would examine what was actually happening in acupuncture, apparently being put off by the seemingly mystical explanations of its practitioners.

Eastern scientists have fortunately been more flexible. I nevertheless found the diversity of topics being discussed in a Japanese scientific journal, The International Society of Life Information Science (ISLIS), astounding. As you can see from the contents and abstracts can be found here, ISLIS does not shy away from studying subjects because they are just "too weird." Below are some examples of the substantive lines of research being explored by journal contributors. (There are also abstracts of "harder" scientific and technological research reported in the Journal, but I wanted to highlight some of their other studies.)

I find such an open minded pursuit of the truth valuable not because I believe that every declaration of every maverick researcher and fringe group should be accepted without question, but because there are enough demonstrably "unnatural" yet easily replicated effects out there that should be cataloged. And, if possible, explained. If something as simple as this bio-energy sensing technique can be learned in a minute or two, what else is possible for human beings?

The substance of "Meridians and Collaterals" is set in the central nervous system or memories in the brain Yoshihiro UEDA Dept. of Physiology, Kansai College of Oriental Medicine ( Osaka , Japan )Abstract: In Oriental medicine, the words auto-therapy power", "meridian points" and "hibiki" are always used. And some questions are always asked: "How can the body be healed? How can the body's health status be maintained that the healing power aims for? How will each acupoint associate with the health status? For the past five years, I have insisted on the importance of "The neural network theory of meridians and acupoints". When an abnormality in a living body is detected from comparison with normal data, vital signs which are a reaction telling about the aberration appear as a meridian phenomenon (effective spot for acupoint, ryodo point, flare, induration and etc ).
Integrated Body Control Method with Image, Breath, Intention, Consciousness, Cognition, Qi and Healing to Make Oneself HealthyKoichiro HAYASHI Gifu Prefectural Institute of Health and Environmental Sciences (Gifu, Japan) Abstract: As an active and effective self-health method, I propose the Integrated Body Control Method (IBC Method) which is composed of Image, Breath control, Intention, Consciousness, Cognition, Qi and Healing. The method focuses on self positive image, intention and consciousness to get better blood flow, nutrition, immunity function and Qi to the whole body and especially to diseased parts. The method changes the body positively while recognizing actual body change. It repeats the instant change between tensioned-active caution concentration and relaxed passive caution concentration. It adjusts the balance between sympathetic nerves and parasympathetic nerves and immediately and drastically changes blood pressure, heart rate, blood flow, body temperature and perspiration. It can improve body functions-spontaneous recovery, immunity, metabolism and regeneration of organs, cells, skins and nerves, for example. The IBC Method is suited to curing diseases and healing injuries (autonomic ataxia, stiff shoulders, pain, nerve damage and so on) to ensure its users are healthy in mind and body.
Changes in Rectal Temperatures and Forced Swimming Behaviors of Mice Irradiated by 30Hz Interference Magnetic Fields An Attempt to Resolve the Qigong Mechanism Takashi AOKI1, Katsushi YOSHIDA2, Yasuo YOSHIHUKU1 and Yoshinori ADACHI3 1.College of Engineering, Chubu University (Aichi, Japan) 2.Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Chubu University (Aichi, Japan) 3 College of Business Administration and Information Science, Chubu University (Aichi, Japan Abstract: Two electromagnetic waves having the same wavelength propagate, meet as they travel, and then are nullified in an instant by interference; next wave fronts are produced from this nullified point and the electromagnetic waves continue to propagate forward. Exactly what is the electromagnetically nullified point? It is well known that the most of the magnetic fields produced by nerve excitement currents in a living body are nullified by interference. We previously pointed out the significance of investigating biomedical influences of interference nullified fields (in other words, interference opposed-fields) in research on the qigong mechanism, and we reported the experimental fact that 65kHz interference opposed-fields produced by a coil had significant biomedical influences. However, biomedical influences by interference opposed-fields of scores of Hz (i.e. average frequency levels for nerve excitement currents) have not been investigated yet. In the present experiment, we examined influences for 30Hz magnetic opposed-fields produced by a non-induction coil on rectal temperatures and swimming activities of mice. We found that the fields had significant biomedical effects, and this suggested that the fields actually existed in the physical world, although they were nullified mathematically. We thought there would be a possibility that the interference opposed-fields produced by currents flowing in a living body such as a qigong healer would have biomedical influences on other bodies, without actually physically touching or invading them.
A Study on Mechanism of Consciousness Based on Holographic Cosmology Takeo OKU Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University (Osaka, Japan) Abstract: The purpose of the present work was to investigate a mechanism of consciousness and life energy from the viewpoint of quantum theory and holographic cosmology. Consciousness / life energy (ECL) for human beings is considered to be photon-like waves expressed by a wave function, and the mechanism of consciousness / life energy is proposed as freezing and materialization of light in macroscopic quantum condensates. Light in a conscious field is frozen in dark energy and dark matter, and atomic self-organization in materialized life-body is due to formation of negative entropy. It is believed that the ECL would include characteristics of quantum coherence such as Bose-Einstein condensation, Fermi condensation, quantum entanglement and tunneling photons. Since all information of the four-dimensional spacetime of the universe is recorded on a three-dimensional boundary from the holographic principle and superstring theory, all the coded information or extra seven dimensions is believed to correspond to ECL, and an information-transformation model of 'consciousness ¨ life energy ¨ matter' could be proposed. From the viewpoint of matter information, the universe information would be a condition with frozen time.

You, or your readers, might be interested in reading up on how to create entangled photons. It's an article that discusses QE from first principles using pictures, analogies, and best of all ... no math. =)

WOW! What a great site you have here. I found it from my search for alternative medicine clinic and it's a cut above the others. Even though my research lead me here and the revelance may not be exact, your content is very beneficial and rewarding. Here's some of me results regarding alternative medicine clinic
