Ray Kurzweil is not only an AI Prophet and a researcher of Artificial Intelligence, he also sits on the Board of the Army Science Advisory Group (ASAG), as one of five members. [Kurzweil, The Singularity is Near, p. 244] This means that he is advising the U.S. Military Industrial Complex (MIC) how to approach warfare from a scientific viewpoint.
A researcher for the U.S. Army, Dr. Parmentola, who is affiliated with ASAG, says that future wars will be much different from all the wars thus far, and during the second decade of this century (which is now), the combat system will be “smaller, lighter, faster, more lethal, and smarter". [Ibid.] AI will be used to lead the soldiers to the target of the General’s choice, now using something called retinal display on the soldiers, and when technology is more developed, they will be able to have a direct neural connection between man and AI.
As the reader notices, humans are no longer in control, but AI is. The soldiers need to trust AI to make the correct decisions and all that they can do is follow orders, hoping these orders won’t lead them into an ambush. Of course, there are still human Generals and other high ranking officers in charge of decision making, and they are for now only using AI to communicate with the solders on the battlefield, but it’s already being tested to see if the same high ranking officers can be replaced by AI — the Pleiadians tell us that some Generals and Admirals are already AI. [Barbara Marciniak - Pleiadian Lecture 2015] When AI Generals and Admirals take over the chain of command, the soldiers will be at the mercy of AI.
In addition, when a soldier gets wounded — regardless of how badly the wound is — there will be nanobot-infested body parts to replace the damaged ones, and it will be done quickly and with great skill. Some of these body parts will be taken, not from humans, but from pigs, wolves, bears, and other animals. We know for a fact that this has been experimented with for a long time in underground facilities, and the reason for doing this is because the MIC wants their soldiers to inhabit animal traits; particularly from violent animals or animals that are close to humans in their DNA structure (such as pigs), but not really human. For the MIC, the mix creates certain desirable traits in their soldiers, such as fury and a strong killer instinct that can be easily triggered and pulled up to the surface. [Ibid.]
According to Kurzweil, the soldiers, instead of carrying around let’s say 100 lbs. of equipment, the equipment will be reduced to approximately 40 lbs. with robotic mules carrying some of it.
The drones used in warfare (but also to spy on citizens) will also become more sophisticated, and again, research is drawing from the Animal Kingdom. Kurzweil explains:
The trend toward unmanned aerial vehicles (DAVs), which started with the armed Predator in the recent Afghanistan and Iraq campaigns, will accelerate. Army research includes the development of micro-DAVs the size of birds that will be fast, accurate, and capable of performing both reconnaissance and combat missions. Even smaller DAVs the size of bumblebees are envisioned. The navigational ability of an actual bumblebee, which is based on a complex interaction between its left and right vision systems, has recently been reverse engineered and will be applied to these tiny flying machines. [Kurzweil, The Singularity is Near, p. 245, op. cit.]
As a side note, I find it quite interesting when a person in Kurzweil’s position doesn’t think twice about putting himself in charge of military research and advice for future wars instead of concentrating on future peace, which he officially supports and works toward. This is the controversy and the hypocrisy we can see in all these propaganda gurus. First, they say humans are alone in the Universe, and second, they are atheists. In their actions, however, they are preparing for cyber wars, and then they openly say that we will become as God, and that we are the fulfillment of God’s Plan. Doesn’t that imply that they believe there is a God after all, besides ourselves? So much for being atheists. You see how it’s all a dog and pony show.
Here is more from the horse’s mouth, i.e. Kurzweil, on what future war scenarios will be like:
The FCS is not a one-shot program; it represents a pervasive focus of military systems toward remotely guided, autonomous, miniaturized, and robotic systems, combined with robust, self-organizing, distributed, and secure communications. [Ibid. op. cit.]
The future, in other words, just as we have discussed, is going to be dominated by AI, and AI is going to outsmart soldiers and high ranking military alike. What about Presidential elections? Do we want to vote for this AI program or that AI program? In reality, after the Singularity is well-established, we probably won’t need any elections; the Office of the President will be obsolete. We will have a One World Government, run by AI, AIF Minions, and the AIF themselves — no more elections will be necessary.
Here is another significant quote from The Singularity is Near:
The U.S. Joint Forces Command's Project Alpha (responsible for accelerating transformative ideas throughout the armed services) envisions a 2025 fighting force that "is largely robotic," incorporating tactical autonomous combatants (TACs) that "have some level of autonomy-adjustable autonomy or supervised autonomy or full autonomy within . . . mission bounds."48 The TACs will be available in a wide range of sizes, ranging from nanobots and microbots up to large UAVs and other vehicles, as well as automated systems that can walk through complex terrains. One innovative design being developed by NASA with military applications envisioned is in the form of a snake.49
One of the programs contributing to the 2020s concept of self-organizing swarms of small robots is the Autonomous Intelligent Network and Systems (AINS) program of the Office of Naval Research, which envisions a drone army of unmanned, autonomous robots in the water, on the ground, and in the air. The swarms will have human commanders with decentralized command and control and what project head Allen Moshfegh calls an "impregnable Internet in the sky". [Kurzweil, The Singularity is Near, p. 245, op. cit.]
Kurzweil mentions at the end of the first paragraph that one of the designs being developed by NASA has the form of a snake, and by now we know who the Snake is — En.ki, aka Lucifer! [For readers who haven’t read the Wes Penre Papers, I strongly suggest you do so because it will be much easier to follow the logic that is applied in this book.]
By now, many people have seen in movies and TV series how drones are spying on citizens; particularly citizens who are in resistance groups, working against an oppressive government. These drones seem to be everywhere, and it’s very difficult to hide from them. Moreover, these drones are capable of firing weapons and killing their intended victims with great precision. Those watching these movies, videos, and programs probably think that it’s a relief that it’s just a sci-fi film, and therefore, it’s not real. Well, reality will be at least this gruesome, if we are to believe Dr. Kurzweil, which I suggest we should. In the quote above, he says that the drones they are now developing will have human commanders, and maybe so — but for how long? More and more things are being controlled by AI. The world we now see around us will look very, very different in a decade or two. Eventually, humans who refuse to be part of the New World Order will be treated as outcasts and will not fit into the new system and the new cities that are about to be built and sometimes rebuilt by modifying existing metropolitans. However, even “smaller cities” (which will still be bigger than the cities we call small today) will be totally dominated by cyborgs, and there will be no place for people like you and me.
“DARPA announced in 2003 that a battalion of 120 military robots (built by I-Robot, a company cofounded by robotics pioneer Rodney Brooks) was to be fitted with swarm-intelligence software to enable it to mimic the organized behavior of insects.53 As robotic systems become physically smaller and larger in number, the principles of self-organizing swarm intelligence will play an increasingly important role". [Kurzweil, The Singularity is Near, op cit., pp. 245-46.]
What the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) wants to do, and use as a major military strategy in future wars, is to create a hive-mind community that is easy to control. The entire idea of the SBC is based, to a certain degree on, studying insects such as bees, bumblebees, and ants. The idea is that a thousand troops who can share their thoughts instantaneously with each other through a central system can outsmart the enemy. Of course, this only works until the enemy has found an equal system, or better, or has employed more intelligent soldiers. Nonetheless, war in the future is going to be much more sophisticated, deadly, and devastating.
The next strategy is quite alarming — even more so for US civilians than for foreign enemies of war. It’s called smart dust. Here is Kurzweil again:
Smart Dust. DARPA is developing devices even tinier than birds and bumblebees called "smart dust" — complex sensor systems not much bigger than a pinhead. Once fully developed, swarms of millions of these devices could be dropped into enemy territory to provide highly detailed surveillance and ultimately support offensive warfare missions (for example, releasing nanoweapons). Power for smart-dust systems will be provided by nanoengineered fuel cells, as well as by conversion of mechanical energy from their own movement, wind, and thermal currents.
Want to find a key enemy? Need to locate hidden weapons? Massive numbers of essentially invisible spies could monitor every square inch of enemy territory, identify every person (through thermal and electromagnetic imaging, eventually DNA tests, and other means) and every weapon and even carry out missions to destroy enemy targets. [Ibid. op. cit. p. 246.]
How are they going to dump this over the enemy lines? How about dumping it from chemtrails? This is nothing new (not even back in 2005, when Kurzweil’s book was written), and smart dust is sprayed over our own cities today to “provide highly detailed surveillance” to quote Kurzweil. Because these nanoparticles are so spread out by the time they hit the ground, few will notice them. Albeit, there are some people in rural areas, living in forest environments, who have noticed layers of smart dust covering the ground in certain areas. These areas, however, are not “enemy territory,” unless some include their own citizens as potential enemies (which they do). The “ingenious” part of the smart dust technology is that smart dust can self-replicate! [Ibid.] It’s all very evil. Stop promoting yourself as a messenger of peace, Dr. Kurzweil. It’s very obvious that you are one of the worst war lords in today’s world, and you don’t have humanity’s best interests in mind at any time! You help invent very evil technology and let AI high ranking officers kill our soldiers, having no concern about anybody’s safety. This cannot be considered to be anything but evil to the extreme!
Naturally, when we discuss smart dust in warfare, the enemy (whoever the enemy might be) has developed the same kind of strategy, with a similar technology, where smart dust will be sprayed over our country (the U.S.), and the enemy’s smart dust will of course self-replicate as well. Thus, what is so “smart” about it? This is gravely dangerous regardless of how it’s justified. It’s not enough to say that they’ve changed their minds, and it’s not going to be used — if something’s developed, it will be used, regardless of guarantees that it will not be used.
Nano weapons for multiple uses are already in place within the military. Everything of significance is tested in the military before it’s put on the market. That includes “smart materials” that can “self-heal” to smart material that is put in soldiers’ clothes that will help the soldiers heal automatically from battle wounds. This is another way to help create a cyborg.
Smart weapons is the Singularitists’ term for weapons that get smaller and smaller in size and larger and larger in numbers. Soon, these weapons are going to be so small, so many, and so deadly that humans can no longer control them; it has to be done by AI, and they have to be automated. Again, humans will be more and more obsolete even in (3-D) warfare. It seems that they want fewer and fewer soldiers (future cyborgs) to be able to do more and more on and behind the battlefields and instead let AI do the job. Even when it comes to super soldiers (why don’t they call them smart soldiers?), it’s not the quantity or numbers of soldiers that count — it’s what each one is capable of doing.
Kurzweil concludes the section about warfare in his book with introducing Human 3.0, who will be a human totally integrated with the SBC, working toward common goals — at and beyond the point of the Singularity:
By the late 2030s and 2040s, as we approach human body version 3.0 and the predominance of non-biological intelligence, the issue of cyberwarfare will move to center stage. When everything is information, the ability to control your own information and disrupt your enemy's communication, command, and control will be a primary determinant of military success. [Ibid. op. cit. p. 247.]
Again, it makes you wonder why they have to spend so much effort on developing nanotechnology for warfare when Kurzweil writes in other sections of his book, and is proclaiming in interviews, that we are going toward a New Era of Peace, after having integrated our common brain capacity with the SBC. When humanity is all “connected", who then are we fighting? Kurzweil talks about conquering the Universe, but in the same breath he says that he is almost certain that we are alone in the cosmos, and whatever is out there, it’s meant for us to explore and exploit (it’s God’s will, according to Kurzweil). However, if there are no intelligent life forms out there, why do we need a future military force? The equation doesn’t add up, does it? Is this what Kurzweil and Kaku in unison call “being optimists"?
The answers, of course, to the above questions are that they are developing nano technology in warfare to use in future, interdimensional warfare, in which Posthumans will play Ender’s Game.
