More of the Transhumanist Agenda in J-Pop Videos: Perfume’s “Spring of Life”


We’ve seen in several previous articles (notably The Transhumanist and Police State Agenda in Pop Music) that the normalization of transhumanism is an important part of the Agenda in mass media. The merging of humans and robots in order to for a new kind of “upgraded” transhuman is a concept that is heavily promoted in movies, music videos and video games.

Almost all major pop stars have been portrayed as a robot at one point or another in their career. Not only does this make the concept of transhumanism cool and sexy for young people, it also makes a profound statement about the nature of the industry (pop stars being robots with no minds programmed to perform).

In Japan, the widely popular group Perfume brings the same message and imagery to young Asians with videos such as Spring of Life. During the entire video, the members of the group are robots that are being tinkered with by unseen programmers. During the chorus, they do a dance routine attached to wires – not a lot of freedom going on there. Also, they hide one eye a bunch of times to salute those who control them.

At one point, the fembots appear to be feeling love and start acting more naturally – which is the next step in the development of this technology: Natural looking and feeling robots that can even simulate emotions. Here’s the video.

While this video in itself will probably not change one’s outlook on life and the concept of humanity, it is another piece in the gigantic puzzle that is mass media around the world. This particular video is aimed at the millions of young people in Japan, but other videos and media are aimed at other people around the world and of different age groups. The combination of all forms of media pushing the same idea ultimately normalizes it – especially when the idea is promoted to young people. So, whether you like transhumanism or not, it is being aggressively pushed around the world.

Perfume is dead ( ; _ ; )/~~~

i know this is very old but I would just like to point out that this video has nothing to do with transhumanism at all. This video is about the group leaving one record company and moving to another. They were not happy being in the record company. They didn't have a lot of freedom ( hence the cords attached to them during the dance scenes almost like leashes ). They were being forced ( programmed ) to act and be a certain way. In the final scene where they unplug each other, that's when they decided to cut ties with the record company and move to a much bigger one.

Idk that's just what I got from watching the video

I get what you alla re saying but one thing that hitts me is the realisation of the lyrics in perfume songs, they often sing about innocent things like in most of theyre songs and i havent seen them as nothing but cutsy electro singers with theyre visual art just being art. so this makes it difficult for me bcus what do you determant to be soly art (like if you like the visuals of a shape or a pattern). bcus when I see American music videos the satanic imedge is clear in comparison like Kesha Rihanna and so on show skin sing sudectevly and so on. While Perfume songs i have read translation and nine times out of ten its about either being a girl in love, having a nice day, everyday struggels and finding streangt. and if the lyrics hint at annything more its verry clean like 1mm… Read more »

1)Perfume aren't sexbots. Look at their clips and lives. They don't have anything about sex. If you want to see sex robots, go and search AKB48.

2)Jpop music isn't trash. That changes people to people, but if you don't like it, just say i don't like it. Perfume even have an "Best female J-Popgroup" award. Yea, a trash(!) group can take an award like that

3)Illuminati started to "show" themselves so badly around 2011/2012. Example, int 2003 or 2007, a lot of persons didn't had any ideat about Illuminati. Perfume used "robot" style and their symbols for a long time. That group is like 10-year-old. Also, they used futuristic theme for a long time too.

IKR! They do a lot of electronic dance music with loads of autotune, why wouldn’t the robot idea appeal to them? As for the triangles, they’re a three person group. Do the math guys.

This is probably one of the best Perfume conversations ever. Im glad we are all obviously insane and skeptical about the evolution of music. Reasons why they are real people and not "sex robots": at 1:39 in the video Nocchi makes a huge mistake and almost falls on stage. In fact this entire video is mistakes made by these "sex robots". oh an here are a couple more videos including mistakes:… Part 2: Of course there is going to be symbolism in a music video. When isn't there? Perfume is very symbolistic to their past in school and in their (mostly previous) insecurities. Part 3: If you knew anything about traditional Japanese "dancing", you would know it was primarily with there hands. Perfume tries to imitate the style with their own twists to it. They can dance, but instead they do their own style which makes… Read more »

Fyi everyone above who's claiming this video ISN'T full of obvious symbolism are clearly overlooking all the other Perfume music videos/live performances on Youtube – ALL of them contain symbolism, many more obvious than even this one.

Here's a few:

If you can't see the checkerboard coloured black and white floor, you must be colorblind

Too bad – this song is awesome nonetheless. J-pop, let alone Japanese media in general, is a hundred times better than Western pop, regardless of all the symbolism in both.

Check out Perfume's other video. Checkerboard floor in second half of video.

Clearly a piano.

I'm sorry, but I think the review for this music video is very pessimistic. I think this video actually represents the idea that we have all been plugged in and controlled by the system, but once we begin and learn to LOVE, we become happy and more in touch with our human spirituality. This is evident in the music video because once love is "programmed" into the "robot girls", you can see the emotion and they become more realistic instead of emotionless and depressed individuals. Unconditional love for everyone is simply what it takes to be a good person. Turn the other cheek. Do not judge, and be tolerant of others and their beliefs. It seems horribly contradictory to claim to be vigilant and yet only support your own beliefs without considerations of others. This is simply my two cents, I do enjoy this website and the conspiracy THEORIES, it… Read more »

Yes, I completely agree with you. I didn't even think that was especially difficult to work out from the video. I think that if people try really really hard to look for alleged symbolism in every music video that exists, they'll find it regardless of whether it's actually intentional or not. It's the same way you can see shapes in clouds and whatnot.

Nah, J-Pop isn't globally relevant enough to be actually affiliated with it, but it does seem like they're emulating and catching on with the symbolism trends in Western videos.

A blindingly obvious example here in David Guetta – Turn Me On ft. Nicki Minaj

I can't believe people get paid for making crap like this.

One thing to add for those who say '' Japs are obsessed with Cyborgs, robots bla bla ..and its going on for years "". firstly you say ''going on for years'' well lemme tell you folks, its not like years in a sense that some 300 or 400 years ago… technology is a bud that grew right after 1970's!! and btw if you study Jap history, japanese sought technology after WW2 when they hit with a thought that only technology can save them from repitition of events like Hiroshima, Nagasaki! thats where their so called obsession started … To add to this Jap media being a Satanic propaganda thing, when infamous Pokemon came out in 90's it was a major hit in the world except few countries that banned it. Out of them was Saudi Arabia.. and the reason Saudi Government banned Pokemon was what lies in this video of… Read more »

heloo VC i have a question. At the beggining of the video, there was this part where the girl was sitting in the chair and the robot arm was like yuh know, pointing at a part of her, was that even necessary?

Actually, if you'll look closer, you'll see the robot is working on the mechanics inside her exposed forearm.

Cyborgs, Robots and Androids have always been a major figure in Japanese media, in movies,anime and manga and video games. So this isn't anything new and there truly is no new agenda. Japan has been perfecting life like robots and they seem very real! The next step in our evolution might just be this tranhumanism step and finding ways to become more advanced. Personally I can say that this video can tell how computers or robots can somehow develop their own identity from what they were created for. Somehow a soul can be made from a computer, something lifeless and follows commands. I think that's inspiring.

when i saw the machine thingy working on the the girls robotic forarm i was all like luke f*****g skywalker!!!! 😮

As much as I love Perfume… As soon as I saw this music video, I couldn't help but cringe at the symbolism. The covering of the one eye, the entire theme of them being controlled/ programmed and re-programmed by some unseen force. Their robotic movements, coupled with their dead expressions in those scenes…It all felt wrong to me, I don't like seeing Perfume like this. Someone on Youtube commented that both the music and the video made them inexplicably sad.

Sometimes being enlightened is tough work…

The Japanese have been obsessed with robots-androids, cyborgs and all kind of sci-fi stuff for years!!! If you think this video is something special or represents some recent phenomena, you are mistaken. Please look at some Japanese media like manga and anime, you will have this kind of stuff going on for decades, there are special genres for this…

I couldn't argue with that. I recollect I used to watch some Japanese-S. Korean films in the cinema theatres in the 80s with all sorts of destructive humungous bad robots, androids etc. They were very popular back then.

Vigilant please look @ this, its from an upcoming rapper who is getting real big.

its soooo weird and scary!!!!!!!!!

I just watched this…this is as blatant as it gets. If people call that art, they are just as sick in the head and lost as lost can be! I already can see some of the comments now…it was only a dream, dreams don't mean anything. Ugh, SMH. It's only going to get worse. I can see this guy Performing with Nicki Minaj or Jay Z or Rihana and everyone just loving it. I've been studying this cap for a while and it still makes me sick to my stomach.

I wonder how long more they are going to promote NWO Agenda Transhuman but not Biblical

Noooooo!! Not japanese groups! Even though I don't listen to them but still… Thx for the info VC.

Koda kumi – pop diva

utada hikaru – you make me want to be a man, devil inside

olivia lufkin- little pain, into the stars

a lot of jpop songs are about illuminati. Also mangas like ghost in the shell, yu gi ho etc…

Trans Resister Radio this week spoke about Transhumanism.

very relevant.

I know this might seem unrelated, but I recently discovered this video on youtube, which I find eerily similar to the elites vision of the future and trans-humanism.

Coincidence, or a message warning us? I ask you to watch this and decide for yourself.

Wow, powerful stuff. Must have had a hefty budget to achieve such high production values– large cast, superdigital w/filter effects, the works. Notice that it's related to a video game, which are pretty effective tools for the illuminati in tricking people into participating in their agenda. I'd bet it's something like a "preventative strike" type of disinformation, cooked up now to quell or undermine some future protests against "augmentation." Some people say that they're supposed to give warning before actually carrying stuff out. Besides, we all know how they love to brag.

That is a good point, I hadn't considered how expensive that probably was to make.

What I consider things like this to be is a sort of justification in their sick minds. They can tell themselves, "Well, we gave them hints, clues and in this case showed them the future. Since they are too stupid to get it, they must deserve whatever fate we deem them worthy of."

OH COME ON!! This song is so fun, why did they made this awful video?! Thank you Universal Japan :/

Hi VC. I hope you will also review Big Bang's latest music video "Fantastic Baby". It's very similar to Brown Eyed Girl's Illuminati video. Please do a review.

Sad to see that people are gonna be lapping up this transhumanist robotic slave crap.

Not sure what scared me more. The wires attached to their backs or the really bad dancing.

i just finished watching Gadget Show and they did an episode on advanced robots. they traveled to Japan to view a computer hologram of a J-pop artists is concert and the amount of ppl coming out to support such rubbish was alarming! the show featured a new technology that connects ppl to their own personal robots; basically you wear this helmet that allows yo to wake the robot up and see and do everything the robot does, if you turn right, it turns right, turn left and it does the same, if the robot sees ppl, you see the same face as it sees it. the thing that shocked me was that if the person connected to the robot through the helmet looks at their hands, they dont see human hands made of flesh and blood, THEY SEE THE HANDS OF A ROBOT!!!!!!!!!! brings a whole new meaning to robot-humanoid.… Read more »

What I don't understand is that why on earth would you want to have sex with a Robot :s

You'd be surprised to know what people are willing to get it on with. Then again, knowing humans the way we do, you probably wouldn't be.

Most probably because they are uncomfortable to be naked in front of someone else?

I can't think of any reason other than that.

I love how everybody on VC says "Omg i will resist this bs!" or "be vigilant!" also adding "I will not succumb to this" even though you use your computer daily probably. Like typing in words is gonna do the slightest of good to apposing the nwo. People need to actually stand up to this, sacrifice what your willing to give for humanity(thats if you even care about your fellow brothers and sisters) if your not even doing sh*t then why bother commenting. Educate other people. Not just blabber about triangle this, eye that, checker board floor over here. Tell them to watch the hell out. Speak up if they see anything out of place in their area. Protest if you have to. Apposing the nwo isn't just about typing and praying, you need to take action for what you want for now and the future generations. Think about others… Read more »

hahahah i completely understand you

sadly i am right now only alone i do speak against people i try to open theyre eyes i come on this site for information there arent people like around me theyre all the same :/ the fact is 🙁 i cant do much right now but when the time will be right i will take the biggest actions i can :/ cuz i must help other people not pray to god to save my sorry ass XD

no god no master no mistress thats waht i say to those who try to make me beleave in theyre faith

''how can you know the truth if all you know is lies'' me :3

I agree!…they're poking fun at the millions of monarch slaves made, and many slaves themselves do the modeling…sick!

hello 🙂 how are you i hope doing well this really isnt about the deal much but i must say it so im sorry if you dont want to hear it but if you do continue reading :3 transhumanism isnt the best thing i see it as the same as cybersex ( which is just weird) im not on god side or devils side im on human side yes you heard me human side nor good nor evil but the thing we were born in balance between the both but now both sides are starting to go flipping nuts 🙁 i wish there would be that balance again im not too friendly with god either and i dont care about satan either cuz in either case your a slave your all life will be slavery unless you do whatever you want unless no one affects you unless no one tells… Read more »

I couldn't agree more with your commnet brother, kudos. It's a shame how alot of nature is being destroyed because of us. I connect more with mother nature then with religion, because nature gives us everything we need to survive, I'm actually gonna be connecting with my shoshoni roots. Ancient Natives of all culturals we're the real human beings, whats left of us are just a me're shadow of what they use to be *sigh* I prefer leaving a mark on this beautiful planet that means that I actually did something to sustain our race, and I agree with "religion makes you a slave" I use to be Catholic but I let go of all that, I didn't really see the use of praying, going to church every morning, or giving money in a wooden box, its as if they're saying "do it or your going to hell!".

our beutifull planet is being destroyed and eaten alive :/ depopulation hmm yeah it would save the planet but its just f*****g wrong the solution might be alot easier then it looks but they dont listen i live in a country home in europe there is beutifull but country itself is going to hell i walk with my bare foot every day in summer and in cold winter days i just love to touch the snow feel it i wish people would start being like they used to in balance to stop choosing sides gods or any crap like that but see what you are doing to your land your home to people beside you :/ i used to be lutheran………but churches just drained my energy i literaly almost passed out in it if god is so great then he would take all people to heaven he would stop misery… Read more »
I watched this video all they way through, and while it is filled with imagery of human robot hybrids, the actual message of the video is very anti-transhuman. In the beginning of the video the girls are resigned to a life of being poked, prodded and programmed, this leads to the "robots" breaking down (symbolized using various black plastic hearts). next the word love flashes on the computer computer screens, (I believe this is the girls discovering what is truly important in life). Finally there is much rejoicing and cool dance moves, and if you stick around to the very end of the video the girls find true happiness when they UNPLUG. that said, I have to admit, cybernetic/genetic upgrades to human physiology or intelligence is not something that bothers me. Anything more than walking out into the elements butt naked is altering our natural state. prosthetic limbs, pace makers,… Read more »

VC, as a personal request, pls do more articles on them 'cuz they've got plenty to offer for all of us on this site. This is another questionable thing to look at & there's much more than this:

Well, the song sucks. I'm sorry, it does. It sucks eggs, big time. Who wrote the music; a bunch of robots? LOL!

As far as sexbots go … I'm not surprised at all. In a Luciferian world, sexual intimacy with just about anything and everything imaginable, in unimaginable ways, gives them a thrill like no other thrill in the world. Recalls to my mind the scene in the movie "Splice", where actor Adrien Brody's character Clive Nicoli has sexual intercourse in the barn with the female human/animal hybrid. I guess he was getting a sort of "two-for-one" experience since humans are already comfortable practicing b********y as well normal sex between human beings.

A sick, evil, and wicked world we are living in. The time is now to decide whom you will serve: either wickedness or righteousness.

My buddies girlfriend thought that chips implanted in our brain is the next breakthrough after the Ipad.

I swear on my beloved dog who just passed away that she said that. You don't want to know how much I love/d my dog.

When she said that my heart dropped.

This s**t is f*****g serious and real.

I am not a tech toy…

I am a human being.

Scary. Is there a phobia for having electronic devices inserted in to your body? I'd like to know the name of my fear.


Nope that's not it… its close though.

attached to my name is a video that proves sex dolls/ sex botz are taking over our culture & how obsessed our youth (especially online) have become with them. The song is actually called sex doll its a friggin music video! What is happening?

Well, we could always try and make an actual anti-illuminatie sub-conscience that is shared by the masses in much the same way.

2 Obvious things I need to point out tho.

1: Illuminati are a gazillion of miles ahead in corrupting human social and global intelligence. (Mass consciousness)

2: We might fall to what we fight.

On the other hand we could work towards a resource based society. ->

I think we all should start cranking out products to this idea and let them fly freely over the globe, but how ever we must be careful as screaming "BEWARE OF THE ILLUMINATI!!!!!" is mostly the way to get yourself ignored/shunned/put away in a "loony"-bin.

And guys lets invert their symbol for a change, cause f**k em why shouldn't we.

Music is too sugary and the song is way to repetative the chorus is annoying. The robot girls are corny.

My thoughts are that there is mind control/one-eyed symbols and truly an agenda of transhumanism

to turn people into robots and or to act like one. I think except for traditional japanese music and instruments this bubble-gum sugary sweet cavity filled music is hard to listen to. Its like little girls all dressed up pretty like some baby dolls in action. I can't stand most pop-culture radio top 20 songs its to fake.

Well, we should be honest about ourselves and if you look at human history, the race of homo sapiens has never done much good, only wars, hate, envy, destruction of the planet, endless killing of animals etc. , so why shouldn't get the robots a chance ?! It seems we don't deserve this gift of life that god has given to us, so if God is in everything he may be as well be part of this ! But I think, in the end, we all, together, have brought this future upon ourselves, over the centuries, together with the aliens, of course, or maybe we are the aliens….ask the Earth….. 🙂

Wake up, dude. We have had our history, our symbols, and even our DNA hijacked by these fiends. Despite everything they have done to degrade our mental/spiritual abilities and our connection to God, we are still here, waking, fighting, evolving, praying. We DO deserve this world of Beauty (Tifareth in kabbalah) that We were given. Just because they keep trying to contaminate it and infiltrate it, you wanna just hand it to them and let them take it over? Because that is their end game-to conquer and fundamentally change our world/dimension into what we would describe as "hell." I say f*** that!

I think the robots are more of a symbolism of the Monarch mind programming of the thousands of children in the US each year. Be more aware of the 'HUMAN ROBOTS' than actual robots in a literal sense.

perfume's whole concept is robotic it's to match the music genre. you should check their older stuff too cause they have been doing this for years.

robots or not…that song is horrible.


Reminds me of Nicki Minaj "Turn Me On" video.

I live In Kyoto Japan and it was only last night that I undeliberately saw this 'girl band' performed on TV. There were some young girls in the audience that were shown, watching the girl band singing and dancing provocatively in such short and almost transparent skirts. They seemed to adore these singers. I thought to myself, how could their parents allow their kids to watch this?

On another note, I was wondering what kind of group or 'forces' trying to push the transhumanism agenda? I thought the Illuminati only belongs to the Western world, with the descendents of the 'illuminated ones' (a.k.a Humanoid reptilians?). But are there Illuminati members in Asia, too?

Some parents don't care, some parents think that their children need A LOT of freedom, some parents see it as normal.

I say that evil people, (13 families, musicians, actors, etc.), want to better the world for themselves. In other words, that means killing people and sick things related to that.

The Illuminati belongs to the entire world. The New World Order calls for a unified world. Sadly, Asia is therefore included. That's why it shouldn't be "all for one", and we should care about our brothers and sisters in other nations. They don't care for your creed, race, ethnicity, culture, moral standards, hierarchy, whatever. You are sheep to be slaughtered in their eyes no matter who or what you are.

Robots replacing humans eliminates the need for humans, if depopulation occurs w all the believers gone there will be jus enough people to control and they'll all have a luciferian New World orgy! Honestly I'd rather not stick around for it anyways…more power to em!

those japanese making robots look human and humans look like robots.

I love perfume! I have seen many more hidden-type things following them over the years..they love using Triangles and one-eyed gestures….but I just love them, been following since their fist single.
