PENTAGON TO CREATE IMMORTAL SYNTHETIC LIFE – AND SEND IT TO WAR!

Wired’s Danger Room has reported that Darpa (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) — under the watchful eye of the Pentagon — is looking to re-write the laws of evolution with a distinctly militaristic advantage by creating “synthetic organisms” that can live forever or, if they get out of hand, be killed with the “flick” of a molecular switch.

So begins the chilling tale of Darpa’s $6 million investment into a project they call BioDesign. With the kind of hubris that begs a bolt out of the blue, Darpa’s new project has the frankly terrifying goal of eliminating “the randomness of natural evolutionary advancement.”

“The plan would assemble the latest bio-tech knowledge to come up with living, breathing creatures that are genetically engineered to “produce the intended biological effect.” Darpa wants the organisms to be fortified with molecules that bolster cell resistance to death, so that the lab-monsters can ultimately be programmed to live indefinitely.”

In order to prevent this new “super-species” from being converted by the enemy they’ll encode loyalty into its DNA. The synthetic organism will also be traceable using DNA manipulation, which they claim is “similar to a serial number on a handgun.” There is also a fail safe of a genetically-coded kill switch in the unfortunate (and seemingly inevitable) event that this beast goes through its awkward teen phase complete with a healthy dose of “parental” rebellion:

“Develop strategies to create a synthetic organism “self-destruct” option to be implemented upon nefarious removal of organism.”

An “official” ethical assessment of this plan was made in a2009 summary from the Synthetic Biology Project reports::

“The concern that humans might be overreaching when we create organisms that never before existed can be a safety concern, but it also returns us to disagreements about what is our proper role in the natural world (a debate largely about non-physical harms or harms to well-being).”

Unexplainable.net paints a particularly disconcerting portrait of the potential humanitarian abuses potentially inherent to this project:

“From a purely military perspective it seems like the ultimate soldier.  Imagine a creature that is programmed to feel no pain, never question orders, and come fresh out of the cloning tube it was hatched from already pre-programmed with an instinctual knowledge of all forms of weaponry, tactics, language, medicine, interrogation, and saluting the right way…  Such creatures could be made to even look like war machines, replacing the typical human features with monstrous ones designed to strike fear into the hearts and minds of the enemy.”

If this development doesn’t represent a “monster” on the horizon, then we don’t know what does. Read more here >>
