William Henry: Human Ascension and The Integration of Technology
Across the world, spanning millennia and bridging cultures and religions, there has been a belief in the transmutability or of the human body into a transcendent higher form, a ?Next Human’.
In numerous spiritual traditions, the Next Humans possess a magnificent, hidden, ethereal Light Body that is referenced as the ?must get’ “new skin” that is under our skin. In Sufism it is called “the most sacred body” and “supracelestial body”. Taoists call it “the diamond body,” and those who have attained it are called “the immortals” and “the cloudwalkers.” Yogic schools and Tantrics call it “the divine body.” In Kriya yoga it is called “the body of bliss.” In Vedanta it is called “the superconductive body.”
The ancient Egyptians called it “the luminous body or being” (akh) or the karast. This conception evolved into Gnosticism, where it is called “the radiant body”. In the Hermetic Corpus, it is called “the immortal body”. In the Mithraic liturgy it was called “the perfect body”. In Christianity, it is called the Resurrection Body.
The philosopher Sri Aurobindo called it “the divine body,” and said it is composed of supramental substance. The twentieth century Christian mystic, Teilhard de Chardin, called it “the ultrahuman.” Today, in Silicon Valley, the Next Human is called Humanity 2.0 or H+ and a new skin is being created with super advanced and highly mystical technology.
