Notes for this week's Podcast

02:50: We have arrived at an inevitable moment in human civilization where we can easily reorder the codes of life and redirect the streams of evolution for all time. One would hope that such unprecedented power would be balanced by a society equipped with farsighted vision, advanced moral and ethical values, rock solid safety mechanisms, and a profound understanding of how altered DNA functions. We have none of these.

5:00: John Stokes...sat with a Hawaiian elder in 1991 who spoke to him...and said...he should create a circle that will catch the earth when it falls and stand it up in a good way.  And if he does, there'll be 2000 years of peace. And if he doesn't, it will be the end of biological evolution as we know it.

8:09: Because what is this genetic engineering but replacing nature,? GMO: God Move Over.  Eliminating nature. Not realizing that nature carries intelligence that needs to be studied and appreciated and expanded.

9:35: Institute for Responsible Technology, those of us working on this, we're not just here to simply protect from the replacement of nature...But we can point the direction to the sacredness and sanctity of life, of the nature of nature. And in that, possibly we can support a transformation of human civilization.

10:20: So my message in this holiday season, my birthday inspiration from my time in Hawaii is to align with the intelligence and sacredness of nature.

11:21: So even in our actions of being activists, of protecting against companies like Monsanto that do not evoke celebration, we can take the higher road and we can carry that celebration in our hearts and learn from and live from nature in that way.

This week's Transcript

Hi everyone. This is Jeffrey Smith, at the Institute for Responsible Technology. Yesterday, December 18th was my birthday and next week we have the holiday season upon us, and I wanted to share some amazing inspiration I got from my friend John Stokes who heard a prophecy from an Hawaiian elder which was remarkable in that it spoke to what we're doing at the Institute for Responsible Technology but expanded it many, many fold. The opportunity is breathtaking, and the threat of course is breathtaking. Now to give you context for this, I'm going to first read you a page that I wrote, which was to introduce the work of IRT, Institute for Responsible Technology to potential donors. Because right now we need to raise money for this project and so I'm going to read you this page and then I'm going to share with now then you'll be able to appreciate this amazing prophecy that occurred in 1991 and predicted to some extent where who we are today and possibly 9/11 as well.

01:26

So here is what I wrote and then, this is not related to the prophecy. I mean it is, but it's not for the prophecy. And then I'm going to share that. 

“The existential threat from new GMOs”.
The allure of gene editing is intoxicating. Biohackers set up labs for as little as $2,000 while major companies install buildings full of robots driven by artificial intelligence for massive output.  The ability to cheaply customize the genomes of any species promises wealth, health, and the unprecedented opportunity to reshape the natural world to our whims and wishes. But what happens when countless genes, gene altered species flood our ecosystem?  What we call nature today, the product of billions of years of evolution would be forever replaced with laboratory creations, forged from a technology whose number one most common outcome is surprise side effects. Tens of thousands of well-intentioned DNA fixes accompanied by the collateral damage that invariably results would irreversibly corrupt our gene pool.

 

(02:42)

We all know how one single invasive species can create chaos in a new environment. What chaos will we unleash when delicately balanced ecosystems are substituted with untested gene altered varieties?  We have arrived at an inevitable moment in human civilization where we can easily reorder the codes of life and redirect the streams of evolution for all time. One would hope that such unprecedented power would be balanced by a society equipped with farsighted vision, advanced moral and ethical values, rock solid safety mechanisms, and a profound understanding of how altered DNA functions. We have none of these. Instead, we have companies like Monsanto willing to overlook or cover up dangers.  Industries, obsessed with short term profit and government's busy eliminating all safety requirements. In the early days of genetic engineering, thoughtful scientists were deeply concerned about the unpredictable and irreversible impacts. They agreed among themselves to keep it in the lab.

03:55

If a GMO could reproduce, it was not to be released into the environment. This prudent measure was soon overturned by profit seekers who overstated the safety and denied the risks. That same false narrative continues to this day. Many activists working on climate change believe that the threat to our planet from genetic engineering is even greater. Although debating that point is fruitless, the implications are clear. We are facing a new existential threat that must be addressed. Please join us to sound the alarm and to create assurances that this powerful new technology is handled responsibly. All living beings and all future generations are in the balance. 

That's the message I wrote on the way to Hawaii, I sat with John Stokes. John has spent years and decades with indigenous peoples years with the Aborigines years with Hawaiian elders, years with Iroquois and in South America, central America. And he said that he sat with a Hawaiian elder in 1991 who spoke to him saying that he should have certain meetings at certain years in the 90s and say, you should do this because in 2000 there will be something that happens that will make it very difficult to get things done. And then around 2015 or 17 or close to now, he should create a circle that will catch the earth when it falls and stand it up in a good way.

05:44

And if he does, there'll be 2000 years of peace. And if he doesn't, it will be the end of biological evolution as we know it. When he said those words, “the end of biological evolution as we know it”, I have never heard a phrase that so aptly describes the threat. That whole page that I wrote could be summarized as “we have the capacity to end biological evolution as we know it”. I talked about replacing nature with a corrupted gene pool. It was so simply said by that Hawaiian elder in 1991.  But I got to thinking it was end biological evolution as we know it or have peace for 2000 years. You know, one could envision stopping the replacement of nature and just continue along with the war ravaged civilization that we have right now. But, I was in Hawaii and other Hawaiian elders and traditional Hawaiians told me about the Aina, which is their word for nature and Aloha Aina, which is this reciprocity between nature and ourselves. The giving that we do for nature, the receiving that we do from nature and vice versa.

07:25

And when I shared a talk in Maui this past Sunday night, I realized the key; how we, in the same process of protecting biological evolution as we know it, was the key for peace. Because it was looking to nature. It was receiving the blessings from nature, celebrating like nature celebrates, honoring like nature honors, carrying that spark of nature. Because what is this genetic engineering but replacing nature? GMO: God Move Over.  Eliminating nature. Not realizing that nature carries intelligence that needs to be studied and appreciated and expanded. If we can shift our attention to appreciate and uphold and honor nature, that's one thing. But if there's this Aloha Aina and the reciprocity, what could we receive as a gift from nature at the same time? What if we could receive at this time of civilization that harmonious evolutionary coexistence that nature upholds, that nature carries. And this shifted my thinking that I'm not just here, Institute for Responsible Technology, those of us working on this, we're not just here to simply protect from the replacement of nature, the end of biological existence, biological evolution as we know it, and of biological evolution as we know it does with the term.

09:25

But we can point the direction to the sacredness and sanctity of life, of the nature of nature. And in that, possibly we can support a transformation of human civilization. As I say, we're at an inevitable time of human civilization where we can do unprecedented damage, ending biological evolution as we know it.  

10:01

But here was an invitation to uphold and propagate a civilization of peace in the same stroke.  Setting, standing up the earth in a good way, catching the earth as it falls, standing her up in a good way. So my message in this holiday season, my birthday inspiration from my time in Hawaii is to align with the intelligence and sacredness of nature. And to actually not only give nature support, but to open, to receive from nature in an unprecedented way.  Expect it. Celebrate it. And as I finished my talk in Maui, I encouraged everyone to take the information about protecting biological evolution as we know it and to do so in a celebratory matter, in a fun way, in a lighthearted way, in an absolutely glorious way. So we actually solve the problem by upholding the quality of nature in that constant celebration that I believe she has and exhibits at all times. So even in our actions of being activists, of protecting against companies like Monsanto that do not evoke celebration, we can take the higher road and we can carry that celebration in our hearts and learn from and live from nature in that way. So that we're actually not just saying no to changing biological evolution as we know it, but we're saying yes to that prosperity of peace and sanctity that nature has to offer.

11:55

So I want to wish you holiday greetings and I want to share that inspiration with you.  And you're welcome to come and learn more about our trying to protect nature and ProtectNatureNow.com.  If you're inspired to do year end giving, that would be a great birthday present for me and for our organization, Institute for Responsible Technology.
