The Age of Transhumanism
Bookmark and Share
What will happen when we replace human body parts with intelligent design built into nano-technology? A bionic man with a mechanical heart but does he have a Soul? Richard and author Maximilian Pereira discuss transhumanism. Then, meet the Iceman, a man with the ability to control his body temperature and withstand extreme cold.
Episode Segments:
 
The Conspiracy Show: Transhumanism
Author Maximilian Pereira's latest book is called Second Sight. Second Sight is the story of a brilliant young scientist who develops the nano-technology to cure blindness. He could never have prepared for the betrayal and intrigue that befell him, nor could he have foreseen the hidden agendas that lay waiting in the shadows. Michael Rose's synchronistic journey into the realms of possibility would not only leave him questioning his own sanity, but the very nature of existence itself. Neither he nor his nefarious benefactors stopped to ask: if this nano-technology could enhance the function of the human eye, what else would it see?

Wim Hof
What Wim is capable of is viewed as scientifically impossible. Maria Hopman conducted a cold physiological experiment with Wim as subject and examined him as he stood in a cylinder filled with 700 kilograms of ice cubes. In these conditions, an untrained person would most likely die from hypothermia.

Wim, however, has never had the risk; his body temperature remained constantly at around 37 degrees. Hopman had expected his temperature to drop dangerously, but the results made her consider the possibility that Wim can influence his autonomic nervous system, which regulates, among other things, the heart rate, breathing and blood circulation.

She thinks its possible that Wim can influence his autonomic nervous system, Many questions still remain: How can a man double his metabolism rate without any increase in the heart rate? How is it possible that Wim does not shiver while this would be the normal reaction of a body exposed to extreme cold? Science continues its investigation on Wim to find the answers to these questions.
