The US government bankrolls the engineering of humans
by Jon Rappoport
August 22, 2013
If you still remember a piece of paper called the US Constitution, you might wonder under what section of that document the government is permitted to alter the human species.
A current Pentagon plan to create a biological platform inside the human body, using it to deliver new genetic information, and thus changing what the human body is and does…well, that is about as outrageous as you can get, when it comes to the violation of permitted federal powers.
Yet, the White House doesn’t care, nor does Congress, nor does the Supreme Court, nor does any federal agency or oversight department. It’s all right. It’s not a problem. It’s a “medical” program, you see. And therefore it will help people, and the government’s job is to help people.
This is the new version of the Constitution: “the government is here to help you, and anything it does in that regard is legal.” Sign up now. Get on the list. Help overrides anything written into the Constitution.
If the government wants to help me, it’s fine. That’s what government is for. It’s like a parent. If the daddy is injecting me with genetic material to make me better, I love it.”
DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is preparing to launch these genetic experiments. DARPA is organized under the Pentagon, which is organized under the Dept, of Defense, which is an agency of the executive branch, which means the White House, which refers to the President, where the buck stops. So that’s the chain of command. The violation of the Constitution goes all the way to the top.
Here is a key quote from the DARPA proposal: “…the successful development of technologies for rapid introduction of large DNA vectors into human cell lines will enable the ability to engineer much more complex functionalities into human cell lines than are currently possible.”
DARPA plans to insert a 47th chromosome into human cell lines. That chromosome will serve as a kind of platform that will make subsequent delivery of new genetic information much easier.
New genetic information means alterations in the body, at the level of DNA.
(For a pdf copy of the DARPA solicitation in question — which is entitled “Advanced Tools for Mammalian Genome Engineering“, click here.)
DARPA will justify these experiments on the basis of improving soldiers’ performance on the battlefield, their general health, their capacity to recover from illness, injury, exhaustion. They can justify it any way they want to, but it adds up to the same thing.
“We will change you. We will make you better. And, ahem, uh, easier to control.”
But this isn’t a debate about how a human could be made better or what “better” should mean or who should decide. It’s an argument that the whole program is a violation of the Constitution—because if we don’t stand on that, we don’t stand on anything.
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problem.”
“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”
Mahatma Gandhi needs no long introduction. Everyone knows about the man who lead the Indian people to independence from British rule in 1947.
So let’s just move on to some of my favourite tips from Mahatma Gandhi.
1. Change yourself.
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.”
If you change yourself you will change your world. If you change how you think then you will change how you feel and what actions you take. And so the world around you will change. Not only because you are now viewing your environment through new lenses of thoughts and emotions but also because the change within can allow you to take action in ways you wouldn’t have – or maybe even have thought about – while stuck in your old thought patterns.
And the problem with changing your outer world without changing yourself is that you will still be you when you reach that change you have strived for. You will still have your flaws, anger, negativity, self-sabotaging tendencies etc. intact.
And so in this new situation you will still not find what you hoped for since your mind is still seeping with that negative stuff. And if you get more without having some insight into and distance from your ego it may grow more powerful. Since your ego loves to divide things, to find enemies and to create separation it may start to try to create even more problems and conflicts in your life and world.
2. You are in control.
“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
What you feel and how you react to something is always up to you. There may be a “normal” or a common way to react to different things. But that’s mostly just all it is.
You can choose your own thoughts, reactions and emotions to pretty much everything. You don’t have to freak out, overreact of even react in a negative way. Perhaps not every time or instantly. Sometimes a knee-jerk reaction just goes off. Or an old thought habit kicks in.
And as you realize that no-one outside of yourself can actually control how you feel you can start to incorporate this thinking into your daily life and develop it as a thought habit. A habit that you can grow stronger and stronger over time. Doing this makes life a whole lot easier and more pleasurable.
3. Forgive and let it go.
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
“An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
Fighting evil with evil won’t help anyone. And as said in the previous tip, you always choose how to react to something. When you can incorporate such a thought habit more and more into your life then you can react in a way that is more useful to you and others.
You realize that forgiving and letting go of the past will do you and the people in your world a great service. And spending your time in some negative memory won’t help you after you have learned the lessons you can learn from that experience. You’ll probably just cause yourself more suffering and paralyze yourself from taking action in this present moment.
If you don’t forgive then you let the past and another person to control how you feel. By forgiving you release yourself from those bonds. And then you can focus totally on, for instance, the next point.
4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere.
“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.”
Without taking action very little will be done. However, taking action can be hard and difficult. There can be much inner resistance.
And so you may resort to preaching, as Gandhi says. Or reading and studying endlessly. And feeling like you are moving forward. But getting little or no practical results in real life.
So, to really get where you want to go and to really understand yourself and your world you need to practice. Books can mostly just bring you knowledge. You have to take action and translate that knowledge into results and understanding.
You can check out a few effective tips to overcome this problem in How to Take More Action: 9 Powerful Tips. Or you can move on to the next point for more on the best tip for taking more action that I have found so far.
5. Take care of this moment.
“I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.”
The best way that I have found to overcome the inner resistance that often stops us from taking action is to stay in the present as much as possible and to be accepting.
Why? Well, when you are in the present moment you don’t worry about the next moment that you can’t control anyway. And the resistance to action that comes from you imagining negative future consequences – or reflecting on past failures – of your actions loses its power. And so it becomes easier to both take action and to keep your focus on this moment and perform better.
Have a look at 8 Ways to Return to the Present Moment for tips on how quickly step into the now. And remember that reconnecting with and staying in the now is a mental habit – a sort of muscle – that you grow. Over time it becomes more powerful and makes it easier to slip into the present moment.
Money is certainly useful, and getting it should matter to you, but merely having money is no measure of your dignity or your value as a producer. Actively improving the world, however – producing – is a proper measure of dignity. So, how were the beauty and dignity of work ruined?
By Paul Rosenberg, FreemansPerspective.com
At one time I lived very close to the Field Museum of Chicago; I had a membership and spent a good deal of time there. One evening, about ten minutes before closing, I noticed that workmen had begun preparing the first floor for an evening event. I had a panoramic view from where I stood at the second floor balcony, and what I saw has stuck with me ever since.
What I saw was a lone man setting up tables and chairs – simple work, the kind that any teenager could do. But what I watched this man do was every bit as beautiful as dance. He moved with integrity, with precision, and with intent. He carefully spaced the tables in a precise geometry, he moved every chair with efficiency. This was more than just work; it was also art. This man knew that he was doing his job well, and, perhaps most importantly, he enjoyed doing it well.
I was transfixed by it all, and I stood there until the guards asked me to leave. And even then, I moved very slowly until I lost sight of him.
There is real beauty in doing a job well, even a simple job. It is our great loss that this form of beauty is never mentioned in public these days – double-sad, because at one time, such beauty was acknowledged.
This brings us to an obvious question: What happened? How did we lose the beauty and dignity of work? I’ll answer that in a moment, but first I want to explain what I mean by “the productive class.”
What Is The Productive Class?
The productive class includes all those people who are engaged in improving life upon Earth: The people who build and repair our cars, our houses, and our computers. The people who provide us with air conditioning, electricity, plumbing, and food. The people who make, clean, and repair our clothing. The people who treat our sicknesses and wounds.
If you can drive around town and point out places where you repaired things, or delivered things, or fed people, or made human life better in any of a thousand ways, you are a producer.
If you survive and persist at the expense of others, on the other hand, you are not a producer.
But if you are a producer, there is an inherent dignity in what you do. You are actively making the world better. You are directly creating benefit for yourself and for other human beings. What you do every day is morally virtuous and worthy of respect. And you should never let anyone tell you otherwise.
And, it’s worth pointing out: Money is not a measure of your worth. In a perfect world, that might be true, but this isn’t a perfect world. In our time, morality and money don’t always travel together.
Money is certainly useful, and getting it should matter to you, but merely having money is no measure of your dignity or your value as a producer. Actively improving the world, however – producing – is a proper measure of dignity.
So, how were the beauty and dignity of work ruined?
The short answer: They were killed by hierarchy and status. I’ll explain briefly:
Humans have been carefully taught to accept, respect, and respond to hierarchy for thousands of years. As a result, we respond emotionally to images of kings, ‘great leaders,’ and so on. But it was the industrial era that finally did in the respect for work. After all, this was a time when millions of people accepted deathly boring jobs simply for better pay. The meaning of their work became a paycheck and nothing more.
And in the industrial setting, there was one clear marker of status: the position of ordering other people around.
The bosses got status and the workers got checks, and both lost meaning and satisfaction from their work. The assumption that was planted in us over the industrial era was this:
Only people who order others around matter. Everyone else should feel shame in their presence.
This, of course, played perfectly into the hands of politicians. This can be seen in the plague of “great leaders” and world wars that erupted at the height of the industrial era, in the first half of the 20th century.
In any event, status is gorilla-level garbage; what matters is what you are, not which position you hold within some kind of hierarchy. By believing in hierarchy and status, we lost the satisfaction of work.
What, Really, Is Work?
It’s important to look at things directly; to focus and see them for what they really are, not just by what other people say about them.
This is what I see when I focus on work itself:
Productive work is the insertion of creativity into the world. It is the birthing of benefit into the world. People who do this should be deeply satisfied by what they do.
Compared to productive work, status is merely ornamental puffery, a shiny coat with the word “Important” emblazoned upon it, and worn by a sad little man.
If you are a member of the productive class, you should re-arrange your mind and stop responding to the demands of hierarchy and status. Instead, pay attention to things that really improve human life in the world.
Creating things, improving things, or making it possible for other people to create… these are noble, beautiful, and important things. We should gain a deep and enduring satisfaction from doing them.
And, indeed, when we put our minds and efforts to it, that’s exactly what we will gain.

“What is finished is the idea that this great country is dedicated to the freedom and flourishing of every individual in it. It’s the individual that’s finished. It’s the single, solitary human being that’s finished. It’s every single one of you out there that’s finished. Because this is no longer a nation of independent individuals. It’s a nation of some two hundred odd million transistorized, deodorized, whiter-than-white, steel-belted bodies, totally unnecessary as human beings and as replaceable as piston rods.” — Howard Beale, in Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 film, Network
But that was only a movie. Who cares about that? You go into a theater, sit there in the dark for a couple of hours, walk out, and think about something else.
For several years now, I’ve been writing about the decline of the individual. The wipeout.
Every time I write an article on this subject, I receive suggestions. I should go back and re-read Marx. I need to understand the difference between “communal, communitarian, community, communist.” I should research worker-owned businesses. What about trans-substantial transpersonal sub-brain algorithmic psychology? How about the pygmies? Ego? Superego? Id?
I appreciate these and other remarks, but I’m talking about the individual, about Self, beyond any construct, beyond citizenship, beyond membership, beyond sociology or anthropology or archeology.
The individual is enshrined in various political documents, but his rights don’t originate there. Neither does courage nor imagination.
I’ve laid out the enormous psyop designed to submerge the individual in unconscious goo. This psyop depends on the repetition of words like: unity, love, caring, community, family. And phrases like “we’re all in this together.”
The individual is characterized as: lone, outsider, selfish, greedy, inhumane, petty. Turn him into an exile, excommunicated from the great body of humanity.
Here, in the usual prose, is a familiar formulation of the grand psyop: “We can no longer afford the luxury of thinking of ourselves as individuals. The stakes are too high. Finally, we must all come together and realize our presence on this planet is a shared experience. The decimation of our resources, through hatred and divisive behavior, the denial of love and community, the cold greed and excessive profit-making, the whole range of social and political injustices—all this can ultimately be laid at the door of the individual who refuses to join the rest of humanity…”
Is this manifesto valid? It’s a deception, BECAUSE it’s aimed at making the individual extinct.
And once that happens, the collective, managed by Globalist princes, will have a clear path to the control of Earth, at the expense of the rest of us. And the cruelties we now witness will pale in comparison to what is in store for us.
When hopes and dreams are loose in the streets, it is well for the timid to lock doors, shutter windows and lie low until the wrath has passed. For there is often a monstrous incongruity between the hopes, however noble and tender, and the action which follows them. It is as if ivied maidens and garlanded youths were to herald the four horsemen of the apocalypse…The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready he is to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race, or his holy cause…Collective unity is not the result of the brotherly love of the faithful for each other. The loyalty of the true believer [who surrenders Self] is to the whole — the church, party, nation — and not to his fellow true believer. True loyalty between individuals is possible only in a loose and relatively free society. — Eric Hoffer, The True Believer, 1951
Wait. Isn’t that a bit harsh? Isn’t that too “critical and negative?” Where is the cosmic share-and-care we need to spread like butter over the whole universe? I mean, Eric Hoffer was a wonderful writer, and he was a working man, a longshoreman for his whole life, so we should admire him, but today’s prophets are wired directly into the Unity that will save us all automatically—like a toaster popping up with toast every time…right?
On some mid-west college campus, a wide-eyed kid of 19, full of hope and optimism, is studying political science. His professor is running down the catalog of stunning injustices that populate far-off regions of the planet.
The boy wants to help. His professor gives him the name of a humanitarian group that runs operations in Africa. The boy, in some sort of “personal crisis,” drops out of school and signs on with the group.
Little does he know that the charity he is now working with in Africa has ties to USAID, which in turn is a solid CIA front. The real mission of the charity, unknown to most or all of its members, is gathering information that can be used as intelligence.
Under the banner of justice, help, hope, and unity of all peoples, the charity is providing actionable intell to CIA-backed “rebel forces” who are carrying out assassinations and bombings in advance of a political coup.
The coup will pave the way for new deals with multinational scum, organized as corporations, to enter the scene and plunder natural resources and labor at more formidable levels.
Five years later, the boy leaves the charity and returns to the US. He is confused, looking for another group in which he can submerge himself. He’s hooked on groups…
The naïve have given up the ghost on their own independent existence. That is the key.
Think of some of the messages of recent pathetic presidents. Bush the Elder: “Kinder, gentler.” Clinton: “I feel your pain.” Bush 2: “No child left behind.” Obama: “We’re all in this together.”
Judging by these presidents’ murderous actions, it’s clear they were selling unity and caring and togetherness as cover stories for oppressive business as usual.
The op? Make the individual extinct, present him as a useless and dangerous and outmoded construct. Then, whatever real unity that might exist between individuals will vanish, because the population will take on the shape of a coagulated mass melted down into a cosmic glob of androidal harmony.
Artists have warned about all this. Their so-called supporters say, “Oh yes, he was a wonderful writer. Misunderstood, of course, but brave in the face of utter rejection.” The usual claptrap. Point is, these gushing advocates conveniently and easily forget what the artists actually wrote.
Here is another reminder from an Outsider who was glad to be outside. He was a hero to some. He was reviled by many.
A bureau operates on opposite principles of inventing needs to justify its existence. Bureaucracy is wrong as a cancer, a turning away from the human evolutionary direction of infinite potentials and differentiation and independent spontaneous action to the complete parasitism of a virus…Bureaus die when the structure of the state collapse. They are as helpless and unfit for independent existence as a displaced tapeworm, or a virus that has killed the host.
After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.
There is simply no room left for ‘freedom from the tyranny of government’ since city dwellers depend on it for food, power, water, transportation, protection, and welfare. Your right to live where you want, with companions of your choosing, under laws to which you agree, died in the eighteenth century with Captain Mission. Only a miracle or a disaster could restore it.
The author? William S. Burroughs. But not to worry, he was crazy. Of course he was. He didn’t profess utter loyalty to the mass of humanity. He didn’t prostrate himself before “the greater good.” He didn’t preach unity and togetherness.
He was an individual. Therefore, he is obsolete. A cherished memory of a time now wiped from the mind. Now we are all dancing and marching in the psyop.
Here’s another psyop and cultural theme: the distortion of money and the free market.
The psyop goes this way: The making of $ is a religious event comparable to the arrival of Jesus or the appearance of the Great Buddha. Indeed, isn’t Christmas the season measured by consumer sales?
A life justified is a life of the bottom-line cash register, a poem to make Shakespeare turn pale with envy.
It doesn’t matter what a product is. If it sells, it must be good. It must mean something profound.
Nail polish, a new plastic toy, a little robot that sings songs—they’re Walt Whitman and Michangelo and Bach because they jumped off store shelves.
Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are geniuses because they and their companies amassed billions. It has to be so.
The team that put together Goofy Bird III, the summer blockbuster hit, are the Chaucers of our time. The box office proved it.

This Whole thing makes me weep and mourn the loss of our humanity.
I want to be perfectly clear. I am pro choice , however ,I am not pro murder at the whim of an irresponsible , self absorbed monster who has no respect for life. Abortion is not birth control, it is to be used in dire circumstances under conditions and terms of the law which are violated by people such as this.
While I am a firm believer that a woman has the right to choose that does not give any person the right to do anything as heinous as this. I would never personally choose abortion as I feel I could not live with that choice personally. However, I do not believe that I have the right to choose for another as is the case in rape and incest victims. To condemn a woman to carry out the pregnancy which was the result of an attack is cruel and unusual punishment making that woman a victim twice. I do not believe that anyone has the right to impose that on another human being. We must each make our choices and live with their consequences and the part we played in it.
Those calling for abortion to be illegal because no one has the right to go through with an abortion would take a step back and judge not lest you be judged. When society does a better job at taking care of all the unwanted children that we already have and no one even gives a second thought to . When instead of condemning a young girl who has made a mistake, she is taken in and counseled and nurtured then perhaps society can have a say . But not until then. For you to pass judgment then you must first walk a mile in their shoes. Some out there have absolutely no idea what other less fortunate human beings have to live through. Until you do , you don’t get a say in what they need to do to live it. Unless you are planning to step in and help!
That being said, those of you who have waited till you are 7months pregnant to go through with an abortion should be put in jail. You had 7 months to think about it , to allow that child to grow inside your body , to feel it move inside you and you still believe it is something that needs to be removed and thrown out like so much garbage?
At 7 months it is not only ILLEGAL to perform an abortion it is IMMORAL and REPREHENSIBLE.
How dare you?
How dare anyone think that they have the right to take a life in this manner and walk away with no consequences. You had the opportunity to use birth control and opted out or it failed (it happens). But you also had ample time to understand what needed to be done if you truly cannot have that child.
What were you doing in those 7 months that was so important that you could not do the responsible thing?
What in the world could have been so important?
To those performing the abortion what kind of uncaring unfeeling monster are you to take a child that is alive , breathing and completely helpless and do something like this?
To treat that small baby like it did not matter.
Dear God and we wonder why we are in the situation we are in?
Only an unfeeling uncaring Monster with no heart could do something like this and feel no remorse……
I like to believe that there is good in all people and it is stories like this that make me think I am so very wrong. There is so much apathy and disregard for life in this society. One life not as worthy as the next depending on who you are and what level of society you come from. Self righteous screamers and utterances of curses and punishments who are at the ready to point out the faults of others but are blinded to their own lack of faith in what is expected of them. When we are taught to love our neighbors as we love ourselves , it did not say unless they are poor, raped,imperfect,or sinners. It is not your job to judge , it is your job to be there to help pick up the pieces and make this world a better place. Last I checked pointing fingers and yelling insults did not make the world a better place.
Laws are in place and they need to be enforced. Why are they not being enforced? These are crimes as real as the ones committed at the Boston Marathon.
Why are law enforcement and FBI not all over this?
This is a hypocritical issue everyone pulling in their respective direction and no one really addressing the problems that bring it about. A little more love and care and a lot less accusations and judgement would go a very long way in that respect…….
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) took to the House floor on Wednesday, condemning the late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell, saying, “May God forgive us.”
Black also blasted President Barack Obama for not speaking out against the “house of horrors” abortion clinic run by Gosnell, who would sever the spinal cords of babies with scissors after they had survived late-term abortion procedures.
“Mr. Speaker, I stand here today outraged and deeply saddened by the heartbreaking story of the abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell,” said Black. “This is the man currently on trial for the murder of eight people, seven of which were newborns who were killed after surviving late-term botched abortions in his house of horrors clinic.”
“But Gosnell didn’t act alone,” she said. “He had a host of silent co-conspirators who referred women to his practice knowing full well of the horrors that went on behind those closed doors. And, meanwhile, the State boards gave Gosnell a free pass for 17 years by failing to inspect his clinic.”
Gosnell, 72, is currently on trial for the murder of four babies born alive and a mother, who overdosed at his clinic the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia. Gosnell was originally charged with seven counts of first-degree murder, but Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart dropped three of the charges onWednesday, apparently concluding that the prosecution did not present enough evidence that the babies in those cases were “not viable,” or born alive.
Gosnell is also facing charges of infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks, theft, corruption of minors, solicitation and other related offenses. The six-week long trial is set to conclude on Monday, with closing arguments after Gosnell’s defense rested on Wednesday, without offering any witnesses. Gosnell did not take the stand.
Rep. Black also condemned President Obama for not speaking out against Gosnell who, according to the grand jury in the case, had killed “hundreds” of babies over the years by snipping their spinal cords.
“When asked about Gosnell’s crime, our president tells us he has no comment,” Black said. “Where is your outrage, Mr. President?”
Gosnell Trial Witness: Baby Abortion Survivor Was ‘Swimming’ in Toilet ‘Trying to Get Out’
(CNSNews.com) – On the last day of testimony before the prosecution rests in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, a former worker at Gosnell’s clinic testified that she saw one late-term baby who survived an abortion “swimming” in a toilet and “trying to get out.”
Kareema Cross, a “medical assistant” who worked at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic for four-and-a-half years, testified in a Philadelphia court today, telling of the horrors of babies who survived abortions only to have their necks snipped with scissors.
“Did you ever see those babies move?” asked Prosecutor Joanne Pescatore.
“Yes, once in the toilet,” said Cross.
The baby “was like swimming,” she said. “Basically, trying to get out.”
Adrienne Moton, an employee at the clinic, then took the baby and snipped the back of its neck while the mother was still in the room.
Cross told the jury that when Shayquana Abrams came into the clinic in July 2008 she was pregnant, “and she was big.”
“That was the largest baby I ever saw,” Cross said.
When the baby was born alive, Abrams was sleeping. Cross said Dr. Gosnell took the baby boy, which she described as 12 to 18 inches long, and put him inside a plastic container the size of a shoebox.
“The baby was still breathing,” she said. “He didn’t cut the neck right there.”
The baby was too big for the plastic container, with his arms and legs hanging over the sides.
“The Doctor cut the back of the baby’s neck but didn’t do suction—normally Dr. Gosnell would do suction … to suck the brains out,” Cross said.
“I called people over to come see it [the baby] and we took pictures,” she said.
The baby boy had curled himself into the fetal position and laid on his side in the box. An image of the baby taken by Cross was shown to the court, showing him laying lifeless on his side. (the photo of the infant, Baby A, is included in the Grand Jury Report and is posted in this article.)
“It was supposed to go upstairs in the freezer, but it was still there the next day because the janitor complained,” Cross added.

First version of this article was originally published on 11 July, 2012
MessageToEagle.com – Scientists have made an unexpected and unsettling discovery – a large number of new and previously unseen mutations have been detected among humans.
There are those who suggest that there will soon be fantastic X-men among humans. These super earthlings do not come out of secret laboratories, as in famous blockbuster movies, but are born naturally. Other scientists are less optimistic and consider the unforeseen development can to lead to unknown changes in the human body.
This unexpected and terrifying discovery is a result of a study conducted by scientists from Cornell University (USA) and University of California.
When they examined genes of several thousands of people from around the world, it turned out that mankind has acquired over the past few years new, previously unseen mutations.
Is a new human race being born?
The scientist studied 202 genes in 14,002 people. The human genome contains some 3 billion base pairs; the scientists studied 864,000 of these pairs. While this is only a small part of the genome, the sample size of 14,002 people is one of the largest ever in a sequencing study in humans.
This project led by John Novembre of the University of California Los Angeles and Vincent Mooser of UK-based drug company GlaxoSmithKline, reports that more than 95% of variants found by sequencing 202 genes in 14,002 people were rare, and that 74% of the variants were carried by only one or two people in the study.
| “I knew there would be rare variation but had no idea there would be so much of it!” said the senior author of the research, John Novembre, an assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and of bioinformatics at UCLA.In the study, 10,621 people had one of 12 diseases, including coronary artery disease, multiple sclerosis, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, osteoarthritis and Alzheimer’s disease; 3,381 did not have any of the diseases.
“The large sample size allows us to see patterns with more clarity than ever before,” Novembre said.
“If rare variants are like distant stars, this kind of large sample size is like having the Hubble Telescope; it’s allowing us to see more than before.
We see a ton of rare variation, and these rare variants more often make changes to proteins than not. In that way, this study has important implications for the genetic basis of disease in humans. It’s consistent with the idea that many diseases may be partly caused by rare variants.”
“Research carried out fifty years ago, showed that the mutant gene had only one man among a thousand, and now five people”, explained John Novembre.
What is causing the mutations?
Previously it was thought that genetic abnormalities are caused by of radiation, viruses, transposons and mutagenic chemicals, but now scientists have identified yet another factor that results in mutations – overpopulation!
Human population growth helps to explain the large number of genetic variants, the scientists said.
Mutations can cause unknown changes in the human body.

This began as the response to a comment left on one of my posts about swine flu in China. However,in researching the response to be able to provide adequate materials for the individual to be able to research their own not simply take my word for it. It grew into this.
I decided that I should post it on it’s own so that others may become acquainted with the history of the US government as well as other governments. I think people need to wake up to the reality and stop the adulation that is blinding them to the truth of the crimes being perpetrated against humanity in the name of War , research and the continuity of the power structure in place within them..
If you thought animal experimentation was the only kind of experimentation that has been done then you need to wake up and smell the coffee. Your governments are not the entities you believe them to be and they are not looking out for your best interest. Quite the contrary, we are inconsequential in the scheme of things and it is high time people started opening their eyes and facing these truths.

I saw this movie last night called “Contagion” where there was a pandemic, of some unknown virus that had an incubation period of less and a few days, if I am correct, I fell asleep so many times during the movie. After reading your post, I can relate to why things are , and why one would say that the government is under a cloak of invisibility or at the very least try to be. Can I say art imitating life …..however, it does make you wonder if half the movies we see aren’t made on the basis of some real-life event. If there were the slightest possibility of a World-wide out-break ,that had the tiniest chance of survival as 1 in 4, would we be prepared for such a disaster? I shiver at my own morbid thought.
Yes , I have seen the movie. Actually Hollywood movies have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to things like that as well as politics and government. Of course, being Hollywood there is always the sensationalistic bent that is given to draw in viewer. Which is logical,they make movies to make money. Too many movies however have come eerily close to situations that have taken place in real life. At least for me.
There are those who believe these movies are based on truths that are spun into the fantastical. Just as there are those who say that it is purely coincidence and anyone who claims otherwise is a conspiracy nut. All I have to say about that is the fact that there have been many conspiracy theories that have been proven to have merit. Now is that to say that all conspiracy theories are real? Of course not. However, based on the facts that some have indeed been proven to have merit how can one say with certainty which arising theory is fact or lunacy?
Now for those who say that claiming that the government would be willing and able to execute any number of these scenarios. May I remind you of the Tuskeegee Syphilis Experiment, the Guatemala human experiments, the radiation experiments that were carried out in low income minority neighborhoods and VA Hospitals. Below I will place several links to corroborate what I am writing here in this response. Do your research, read for yourself, don’t take my word for it.
So you see your concerns are not unfounded and we must always remember to be critical and vigilant of governments. For their intentions are never to safeguard the lives of individual human beings but rather their war games and ensuring the continuity of their perverse greedy and power hungry governments.
Experiments performed in the United States
Main article: Unethical human experimentation in the United States#Human radiation experiments
Numerous human radiation experiments have been performed in the United States, many of which were funded by various U.S. government agencies  such as the United States Department of Defense and the United States Atomic Energy Commission. Experiments included, but were not limited to:
Injecting radioactive iodine into pregnant women seeking abortion, in order to track the mass transfer between placenta and carriers bloodstream. Another experiment administered radioactive iodine to newborns.
irradiating the heads of children
feeding radioactive material to mentally disabled children
exposing U.S. soldiers and prisoners to high levels of radiation
irradiating the testicles of prisoners, which caused severe birth defects
exhuming bodies from graveyards to test them for radiation (without the consent of the families of the deceased)

Psychologist Maria Beatrice Togo, who collaborated with psychotherapist Tonino Cantelmi on a new book released Friday, “Technoliquidity,” postulates entertainment technology, such as video games, “has triggered an evolutionary leap, just like the written word 3,000 years ago.”
”It has changed our memory, our brain has lost certain connections,” the Italian news agency ANSA quoted Togo as saying. “Some circuits have been lost and others have developed, circuits that are more closely linked to perception.
“The human brain has not changed on an anatomical level but it now works differently. It is a new brain. And the protagonists of this historic step, the ones with a ‘new brain,’ are the children and adolescents of today.”

Clues gleaned from the most recent infections with the new coronavirus are behind the World Health Organization’s decision to warn countries to broaden their surveillance for cases, an expert with the agency says.
The Geneva-based global health body now believes the risk of exposure to the new virus may exist beyond Saudi Arabia and Qatar, so telling countries they need only look for sick people with travel or residency links to those countries may be misleading and counterproductive.
It’s not that the WHO has proof of infections from elsewhere. The issue is rather that its disease experts can think of no reason why a virus that has popped up in different parts of Saudi Arabia and in Qatar would be limited to those two countries.
“It’s impossible to know at this point because of the limited amount of testing just how widespread this problem is,” says Dr. Anthony Mounts, the WHO’s technical point person for the outbreak.
“But it just seems inappropriate to continue to focus on two countries in the region when there’s really not much that would lead you to suppose that those were the only two countries affected. … We have to widen the net a little bit to try and find out how big a problem this is.”
On Friday the WHO reported that four additional infections with the new virus — a cousin of the coronavirus that caused SARS — had been found in Saudi Arabia and Qatar. They bring to six the total of confirmed cases since this virus was first spotted in June.
In that time, four cases have been reported by Saudia Arabia. As well, two relatives of two of the Saudi infections are considered probable cases; they all lived in the same household and were sick with similar symptoms at about the same time.
While one of the probable cases tested negative, not even the Saudi government is confident that is a true negative, Mounts says.
To date there is no validated blood test to confirm infection, so diagnosis relies on PCR — short for polymerase chain reaction — tests that look for pieces of virus in sputum specimens or on swabs poked into nasal cavities. The reliability of testing in such cases depending on when and how well those samples were taken.
“With PCR especially, a negative isn’t as revealing as a positive,” Mounts says. “With a negative, you just always have to question whether you just didn’t get a good enough swab.”
The WHO’s Friday statement said countries should consider testing people with unexplained pneumonia for the virus, even if the patients don’t have links to the two countries.
It also said countries should investigate clusters of severe respiratory infections — especially in health-care workers — regardless of where they happen in the world. Health-care workers can be sentinels in disease outbreaks because they get exposed by caring for sick people.
The WHO is in the process of further revising its guidance to countries; it may post the new advice on its website as early as today. Mounts suggests the goal is to try to strike an balance between looking hard enough to see what’s really going on and not swamping health-care systems.
“We don’t want to overburden everybody,” he says. “We don’t think that it’s necessary at this point for every unexplained pneumonia case in the world to be tested for this virus.”
There have already been concerns raised that the agency missed the mark with the advice issued Friday.
In a statement posted on its website Monday, the European Centre for Disease Control said testing all patients with unexplained pneumonias would place a heavy burden on hospitals in the European Union.
The ECDC estimated EU hospitals treat about 750,000 patients a year with pneumonias for which a cause is not identified. It said it may come up with more targeted advice on testing for EU countries.
In the meantime, the ECDC said health-care workers should be on the lookout for patients with severe respiratory illnesses who have travelled to or are residents of the Middle East.
Mounts says when the first two infections with this virus were spotted, in June and then September, both men had been in Mecca, Saudia Arabia, before they got sick. As such the chance existed that the source of infection — which is currently unknown — was only found there.
But the newest infections show that isn’t possible. Some of the Saudi cases had not been to Mecca before they got sick. They live in and fell ill in Riyadh, the capital. And the most recent case from Qatar lives in Doha and had not recently travelled outside the country.
With people falling ill in different places, it seems unlikely that the risk of infection exists only in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, WHO experts believe.
As well, two of the more recent cases were not as sick as the first cases, Mounts notes. They were seriously sick — they needed mechanical help breathing for a time — but they didn’t experience the kidney failure seen in the first two cases.
“So that indicates to us that there is a milder form of the disease. It doesn’t always involve multi-organ failure and so on,” Mounts says.
“But how mild it could be is unknown. And you know, that’s basically because where we look for this is in hospitals. And people have not yet started to test milder cases in the area.”
Bats have been named as a possible source of the virus, because its genetic sequence is most like that of other coronaviruses that come from bats. Mounts cautions, though, that at this point the evidence is only suggestive.
But even if that’s true, it’s not clear how the virus got from bats to people — and there are a number of possible routes. Bats could pass the virus to other animals, which in turn somehow infect humans. People could come in contact with bat guano, or dust from it, or bat urine.
Another possible source is contaminated fruit, Mounts notes. It’s known that in Nipah virus outbreaks in Asia, date palm sap and fruit contaminated with bat saliva have been the source of disease. (In some countries date palms are tapped like maple trees. The sap that flows is a popular drink. But bats like it too.)
Saudi Arabia and Qatar import a lot of food and animals from other countries, both within the region and beyond. Mounts says the WHO is trying to figure out what connections might be important so it can better advise countries on how to remain alert for infected people.
The two cases from Qatar illustrate one possible route by which the virus might move from wherever it is to further afield.
After they fell ill, both Qatari men flew out of the country to Europe for treatment — one went to London, the other to Germany. In both cases the European facilities did not know their new patients were infected with the new virus when they admitted them.
Wealthy Middle Easterners often seek care in Europe. That is factored in to the ECDC guidance, which urges hospitals to test patients with acute respiratory infections who are transferring in from the Middle East.
Mounts says the WHO guidance will also instruct hospitals accepting patients like these to take the type of precautions they would take for other respiratory infections to protect their staff and other patients.
