I ran across this statement, “By the year 2040, a combination of extreme computation, nanotechnology, massively high bandwidth ubiquitous networks, and robotics will lead us into a different world.”(Pressman 841)
The culmination of all the current technology growths (in silos) will eventually merge. While some look forward to this, I am a bit apprehensive.
One of the big things I see is the advancement of transhumanism. In the website What is Transhumanism, transhumanism can be defined as “a way of thinking about the future that is based on the premise that the human species in its current form does not represent the end of our development but rather a comparatively early phase.” (Transhumanism, 2017)
There is a push for those in the transhumanism movement to be immortal by 2045. The initiative is called 2045, and interestingly Avatar D is scheduled to be available 2040-2045, correlating what the statement comments on. (2045, 2017)
Essentially, the collaboration of computation, nanotechnology and information technology as a whole will be utilized to enhance the human body, or replace it all together.
Curious of other’s thoughts on this.

Warning: Spoilers for those who have not seen Guardians of Galaxy 2.
For those reading my articles, I am touching base on the subject of Nephilim, and the idea of Fallen Angels having children through daughters of men. The known verse is found in Genesis 6:1-5. This story is also conveyed through other religions and cultures throughout the world, such as the Titans in Greek Mythology.
One of the main plot lines in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is Starlord, played by Chris Platt, learns of his father. Not only does he learn of who he is, but what he is. The story conveys Starlord’s father is a ‘Celestial’. Peter (Starlord) specifically asks him if he is a God. The father replies, “A small g”.
The discussion continues, and Peter learns he is the offspring of a god and human woman. IE: Hybrid, Nephilim. I found this fascinating, due to my study of this same subject.
Something else I noticed is the spaceship of Peter’s father when viewed from the front looks just like an eye. A lot of material is online referencing the ‘one eye’ and it’s representation of Lucifer.
So we have two things pointing to fallen angels (celestials) having children with daughters of men.
- Small gods having children through daughters of men, and
- Representation pointing to who those small gods are.
Outside of that, the movie was really entertaining, and I couldn’t help but giggle throughout, due to it being funny and light.
