The “Body Hacking” Movement Pushes Transhumanism to Disturbing New Limits

152

The “body hacking” movement is about implanting into the human body technology such as RFID chips, cameras and even LED lights. By bypassing health and ethical issues associated transhumanism, this body hacking pushes this movement to strange new frontiers.

As stated in my previous articles about the subject, transhumanism has been heavily promoted in mass media in the past years, whether it be through movies, music videos, video games and documentaries. Often, the word “transhumanism” isn’t even used. Instead, we simply show how a robotic enhancement “upgrades” the human body and makes it cooler, effectively selling the idea to people who believe they are being entertained – especially young people.

A by-product of this trend is “body hacking”, a movement that forgoes the ethical and philosophical questions associated with transhumanism to go right into drilling robotic parts onto one’s body. While many of us dread the day when microchips implants will be a requirement in a dystopian society, some people actually pay to have it done to them.

Here’s an interesting article about the movement from NPR.

Justin Worst, Marlo Webber and Jes Waldrip show off an LED light implant. Grindhouse Wetware calls it the Northstar.

Justin Worst, Marlo Webber and Jes Waldrip show off an LED light implant. Grindhouse Wetware calls it the Northstar.

A curious crowd lingered around Amal Graafstra as he carefully unpacked a pair of gloves, a small sterile blanket and a huge needle. A long line of people were waiting to get tiny computer chips implanted into their hands.

Graafstra had set up shop in a booth in the middle of an exhibit hall at the Austin Convention Center in Texas’ capital, where he gathered last month with several hundred others who call themselves “body hackers” — people who push the boundaries of implantable technology to improve the human body.

The movement evokes visceral reactions, brings up safety and ethical concerns and quickly veers into sci-fi questions about the line between human and cyborg.

Graafstra is a pioneer in the space. Using his own body to experiment, he designed bio-safe magnets and the microchip he was about to implant into the hand of A.J. Butt, who was sporting a tall, blue mohawk.

A.J. Butt got an RFID microchip implanted into this right hand.

A.J. Butt got an RFID microchip implanted into this right hand.

The implantable RFID chips hold encrypted information, and their unique ID numbers can be used to open doors or unlock the owner’s smartphone, which is what Butt wanted to do.

Butt took a deep breath. The needle plunged into his skin at the base of his thumb, and a chip bigger than a grain of rice slipped just below the surface.

Across the way, Sasha Rose, who was working a meditation booth at the convention, watched the people line up to be “chipped.”

She shook her head: This was the craziest thing she had seen. She wondered about Graafstra’s credentials. She thought this was a medical procedure, so should he be performing it? Did his clients know the potential consequences of carrying personal information on a device inside their skin?

“More than the crazy concept, it’s actually people’s willingness to accept it. That’s why it’s crazy to me,” Rose said. “People are just willing to just line up and go, ‘Yeah, stick that in me.’ ”

At night, many of the convention-goers gathered at a club on Austin’s Sixth Street.

Graafstra was outside with Ryan O’Shea, whose company Grindhouse Wetware made the Internet squirm earlier this year when it released a close-up surgery video of one of its implants called Northstar. In it, a man gets a small incision in his hand, and then, with a metallic tool dipped into it, the skin is lifted to produce a cavity where a round subdermal implant with five LED lights is placed.

The result looks dystopian — the incision is stitched with black thread, and LED lights make the skin on the hand glow red.

But body hackers view the world differently, Graafstra said. They believe technology has reached a point where it can improve the human body instead of just fixing what’s broken.

“A patient may someday come very soon and say, ‘My eye is totally fine, but I want an eye that can see infrared. And I want an eye that can zoom,’ ” Graafstra said.

That kind of future — where the human body is augmented by technology — is the goal of many of these experiments.

O’Shea said Grindhouse Wetware is using its LED device to test how long a device like it can remain charged inside a body, and Graafstra said his RFID chip is a small attempt at merging digital identity with physical identity.

“I think once people realize, ‘Oh, it’s OK that my grandma has a pacemaker’ … people are going to start to accept this,” O’Shea said. “You know, the era of transhumanism, I would say, is here. So let’s accept that and then see where that logically takes us.”

Inside the club, a drone hovered above the dance floor. The polished steel and the electronic dance music gave it a futuristic feel.

Standing near the bar was Tony Salvador, who studies social values and how they affect technology at Intel. He was at the conference to get a feel of when and if “body hacking” may be accepted into the mainstream.

Sometimes, he said, technology moves too fast and outpaces accepted social boundaries — not to mention laws. He argued that was part of the reason why early wearers of Google Glass were called “glassholes.”

“It created a social misunderstanding,” Salvador said. “You didn’t know what was going on.”

To Salvador, the boundaries of acceptance are a matter of our social philosophy, an area that he argued was driven by esoteric discourse without tangible moral and ethical recommendations.

The philosophers, he said, are letting us down.

Alva Noë, a philosopher at the University of California, Berkeley and a contributor to NPR’s 13.7: Cosmos and Culture blog, has written extensively on what he calls “cyborgian naturalness.” He disagreed that the modern philosophers dropped the ball, saying that tackling the matter would involve unpacking two questions:

  1. Is it OK to cut into human bodies for these kinds of experiments?
  2. How much tolerance should society have for artificially enhancing the body?

To the first question, Noë said he found the “body hacking” experimentation on humans “ethically disturbing” and couldn’t fathom a doctor or any other scientists conducting these kinds of operations.

The second question was more complicated.

“We don’t condemn people for using glasses to see better,” he said. “But we do start to think taking speed to cope with your work life is questionable.”

Because those kinds of judgments are an ethical question, drawing a tolerance line may always be a moving target, he said.

“We may reach consensuses and then lose them,” Noë said. “Just as there was once a consensus where it was OK to smoke to function effectively, and now we have the consensus that, increasingly, it’s not OK to do that.”

If there’s a rock star in the body-hacking movement, it’s Neil Harbisson, a colorblind artist from Barcelona who persuaded a doctor to implant a camera in the back of his head. The antenna, as he calls it, essentially lets Harbisson listen to colors by detecting the dominant color in front of him and translating it into musical notes.

Neil Harbisson, an artist from Barcelona, has a camera implanted in the back of his head, which he says allows him to listen to colors

The way he tells it, a medical ethics committee in Europe had refused to sign off on the operation, but a doctor agreed to perform the surgery anonymously. From it, Harbisson emerged with a camera connected to a device on the back of his skull, its lens dangling in front of his face on a rod that arcs over his head.

As he walked the streets of Austin, he described how he perceived the world: the red traffic light sounded like an A note; the green grass sounded like an F.

In his keynote address at the conference, Harbisson said the first time he heard those colors in his sleep, he felt truly cyborg. Now, he no longer identifies as human but as a “cybernetic organism.”

“If we define ourselves as organisms, suddenly our group is wider,” he said. “We are on the same level as an insect, or as a cat, or as a plant.”

Harbisson is well aware of how the world perceives him. He moved from Barcelona to New York City in search of “peace” with another friend in the transhumanist movement, Moon Ribas. Ribas has an electronic device in her arm that she said vibrates when there is an earthquake anywhere in the world.

On more than one occasion, people have tried to rip off his antenna, Harbisson said. That’s part of the reason why he co-founded the Cyborg Foundation to advocate for “cyborg rights.”

When asked if he’s ever thought about just taking the antenna off, Harbisson demurred.

“To me, it’s much stronger, the wish to sense what’s around me, than the fact that people keep annoying me,” he said, adding that maybe, in the future, as others get new senses, he’ll be considered normal.

So many Christians on here, anyone can answer – supposing you take the scripture literally, the world is flat according to the Bible. Do you believe this? Particularly wonder what Vigilant Citizen’s thoughts on the flat earth are.

Michael

Seperating the literal from the allegorical is the biblical dilemma. Because there are also bible passages that if taken literally describe the world as round. It’s all about the interpretation. If people of the time believed the world was flat, then they would try to interpret the bible according to their own world view. On the contrary, now that consensus is a round earth, you can also find passages that describe the modern view of a round globe.

Honestly that’s just not really true … anyone really familiar with scripture knows that the Bible is very clear AND consistent in its descriptions of this plane. And that there is a firmament, a vaulted dome, that covers the plane and separates the oceans above from the oceans below. Nothing in the bible can be accurately interpreted to say the earth is round or a sphere or spinning through space. I’ve just been confused for a while on how someone can be a “true believer” and yet believe in a ball earth spinning through space? This, of course, applies to… Read more »

If you want to take everything totally literal than it’s hard to argue. You’re expecting an ancient text to describe the world as you and I know it today. An impossible feat. I take it as a poetic way of describing the nature of the universe to an ancient populace. A vaulted dome is a beautifully worded way to describe the sky. The bible describes the world as a circle. Is a sphere or globe not circular? Does the bible describing the four corners of the earth point to a flat earth? But a circle has no corners, be it… Read more »

Oh I suppose it has to do with the fact that – in the end – humans wrote the Bible, albeit through the Holy Spirit (which makes a world of a difference). Jacob saw angels decending and ascending through from a luminious ladder….. In todays world, would we not describe that as an alien spaceship? with those things being busy at work in and around the ship? I think the Bible, in certain cases, is metaphorical only because the people of that time had no other words to relate to and describe the situations they were presented with.

Please, tell us which scriptures says the earth is a round globe. Actually, Isaiah 40:22 says “…above the circle of the earth.” It does not refer to the earth as a ball nor a globe. But a circle which could very well describe a wheel shape therefore being a circle and flat at the same time.

I’m a Christian, and I believe the Earth is flat, but salvation depends only on faith in the gospel of God’s only son, Jesus Christ, who gave his life on the cross as full payment for our sins, was buried three days and then resurrected. There is evidence for a great many things in the Bible that is suppressed by our satanic world oligarchs, for example: a stationary flat earth covered by a firmament dome, ancient giants, the world satanic oligarchy itself, the Great Flood, etc. I was born again after years of research into phenomena like these by which… Read more »

Never mind the opinions of opinions with regards to what the bible says! Have a look yourself … The bible says in Job 26:7 that the earth is suspended upon nothing and Isaiah 40:22 states that the earth is a circle. These scriptures are from the Old Testament and so have been saying this for thousands of years.
Humans like to follow fashion, which isn’t always right.

Hope this helps and if anyone wants more questions answering you can find lots of information at JW.org or in the bible itself.

This is very well-studied in marketing. We as consumers can be innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority or laggards (I tend to be the latter type, typically). At this point, I would say transhumanism is in the “innovators” or “early adopters” stage. Once they get a critical mass of people to adopt the system and swear by it, they will convince many others to join in. Perhaps by then they can make the system mandatory without causing too much resistance. Especially if the switch is “free of charge” (which of course, is not free at all, for it will… Read more »

You can, with some attention, undo the update that includes the annoying add. In due time turn it on if you want to enjoy the update.

They will do it subtlety. They will declare all the paying methods obsoletes. And give a certain time to people to get used to RFID chips while still using the “out of date paying methods”. And then set a deadline for everybody to get one(a chips of course).
