BLTC RESEARCH was founded in 1995 to promote paradise-engineering. We are dedicated to an ambitious global technology project. BLTC seek to abolish the biological substrates of suffering. Not just in humans, but in all sentient life.
Absurdly fanciful? No. The blueprint for a Post-Darwinian Transition to a cruelty-free world is conceptually simple, technically feasible and morally urgent.
At present, life on earth is controlled by self-replicating DNA. Selfish genes ensure that pain and malaise are endemic to the living world.
Yet all traditional religions, all social and economic ideologies, and all political parties, are alike in one respect. They ignore the biochemical roots of our ill-being. So the noisy trivia of party politics distract us from what needs to be done.
Fortunately, the old Darwinian order – driven by blind natural selection acting on random genetic mutations – is destined to pass into evolutionary history.
For third-millennium bioscience allows us to:
- rewrite the vertebrate genome
- redesign the global ecosystem
- deliver genetically pre-programmed well-being
In the new reproductive era ahead, biotechnology will make us smarter, happier and just possibly nicer. Post-Darwinian superminds can abolish “physical” and “mental” pain altogether.
The ethical importance of the decisions we take can scarcely be exaggerated. For soon we’ll be forced to choose how much suffering in the living world we want to conserve and create. Or we can choose instead to abolish suffering completely.
Life on earth can be animated by gradients of ecstatic well-being beyond the bounds of normal human experience.
In the end, the greatest obstacles to lifelong superhealth and a cruelty-free world may prove ideological, not technical. BLTC RESEARCH campaign to promote paradise-engineering as a rigorous academic discipline and a mature applied science.
