File this article under ‘transhumanism’. The deception of replacing natural mortality with something immortal, APART from salvation by Jesus Christ. Keep in mind that at the Garden of Eden, God sent angels to guard the tree of immortality from Adam and Eve. ‘Least they become sinful for all eternity, in an immortal and unsalvageable state. It is God’s plan to save humanity, and their broken mortality, through the forgiveness of their sins via His Holy Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. On the rapture / harpazo / day of redemption, those who are both ‘dead and alive’ will receive immortal, glorified bodies (like Christ’s resurrected state) that will never rust, wear-out, need knee replacements, bionic eyes or genetic manipulation to fight viruses or cancers. The old, mortal cloak of humanity will gave way to the glorious likeness of Jesus, as we see him.
It has been a temptation for mankind to ‘fix’ their physical ailments, diseases and frail bones with something that will last forever. To cheat death, to live forever. HOWEVER, for most men, this temptation would result in living forever in a sinful, fallen state … apart from Christ.
‘As in the Days of Noah’ not only suggests that genetic manipulation and corruption will be abundant, but also attempts at immortality along with advanced technologies (via the ‘alien’ – fallen angels) that will somehow ‘extend’ or transform fallen, mortal bodies.
In John the Apostle’s book the Revelation of Jesus Christ, there are a number of passages that gives us clues that men were able to cheat death. ‘They sought death because of their pains, but death escaped them.’ This is either a result of genetic manipulation or some type of technological embellishment. Either way, they have attempted to cheat death and diseases to become immortal, in a sinful, fallen state.
Doctors Are Preparing to Implant the World’s First Human Bionic Eye
The same implants could potentially treat paralysis as well.
VICTOR TANGERMANNSEPTEMBER 15TH 2020
A team of researchers at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, has built a bionic device that they say can restore vision to the blind through a brain implant.
The team is now preparing for what they claim will be the world’s first human clinical trials of a bionic eye — and are asking for additional funding to eventually manufacture it on a global scale.
It’s essentially the guts of a smartphone combined with brain-implanted micro electrodes, as TechCrunch reports. The “Gennaris bionic vision system,” a project that’s more than ten years in the making, bypasses damaged optic nerves to allow signals to be transmitted from the retina to the vision center of the brain.
The system is made up of a custom-designed headgear, which includes a camera and a wireless transmitter. A processor unit takes care of data crunching, while a set of tiles implanted inside the brain deliver the signals.
“Our design creates a visual pattern from combinations of up to 172 spots of light (phosphenes) which provides information for the individual to navigate indoor and outdoor environments, and recognize the presence of people and objects around them,” Arthur Lowery, professor at Monash University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, said in a statement.
The researchers are also hoping to adapt the system to help those with untreatable neurological conditions, such as limb paralysis, to regain movement.
“If successful, the MVG [Monash Vision Group] team will look to create a new commercial enterprise focused on providing vision to people with untreatable blindness and movement to the arms of people paralyzed by quadriplegia, transforming their health care,” Lewis said.
A trial in July showed that the Gennaris array was able to be transplanted safely into the brains of three sheep using a pneumatic insertor, with a cumulative 2,700 hours of stimulation not causing any adverse health effects.
It’s still unclear when the first human trials will take place.
“With extra investment, we’ll be able to manufacture these cortical implants here in Australia at the scale needed to progress to human trials,” Marcello Rosa, professor of physiology at Monash and MVG member, said in the statement.
The news comes after Elon Musk’s brain computer interface company Neuralink announced it’s testing its coin-sized interface prototype in live pigs. The end goals are similar: to treat brain issues including blindness and paralysis.
Whether the Monash device is technically the first bionic eye, though, may come down to semantics.
A separate brain implant, a “visual prosthetic” device, developed by scientists at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, recently allowed both blind and sighted participants to “see” the shape of letters, as detailed in a paper published in May.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!
Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
