One of the leaders of the transgender movement is a transhumanist and Lincoln, Vermont, resident who has co-founded a new ‘technology is God’ religion and created a talking, interactive android copy of a spouse.
Martine Rothblatt is the founder of Sirius satellite radio. Rothblatt was also an early investor in Beta Technologies, the solar-powered airplane manufacturer in South Burlington. Rothblatt also donated $500 to the 2022 election campaign of Progressive/Democrat David Zuckerman.
Born a male and given the first name of Martin, Rothblatt’s Wikepedia bio is a succinct summary of divergent, entrepreneurial and academic achievement: “Martine Aliana Rothblatt (born October 10, 1954) is an American lawyer, author, entrepreneur, and transgender rights advocate. Rothblatt graduated from University of California, Los Angeles with J.D. and M.B.A. degrees in 1981, then began to work in Washington, D.C., first in the field of communications satellite law, and eventually in life sciences projects like the Human Genome Project. She is also influential in the field of aviation, particularly electric aviation, as well as with sustainable building.
“She is the founder and chairwoman of the board of United Therapeutics. She was also the CEO of GeoStar and the creator of SiriusXM Satellite Radio. She was the top earning CEO in the biopharmaceutical industry in 2018 [Wikipedia bio].
“Her patented inventions cover aspects of satellite radio, prostacyclin biochemistry and cognitive software,” says Rothblatt’s bio on the Board of Directors page of the website of Terasem Movement, whose mission “is to promote the geoethical (world ethical) use of nanotechnology for human life extension. We conduct educational programs and support scientific research and development in the areas of cryogenics, biotechnology, and cyber consciousness.”
An October, 11, 2017 International Day of the Woman interview at UVM offers more insight into what motivated Rothblatt’s string of entrepreneurial successes: a family illness believed to be fatal. Already a major success in satellite radio, Rothblatt plunged into medical technology as a result of seeking answers to a previously-incurable heart condition suffered by her daughter, she told the audience in an interview conducted by former Green Mountain Power President Mary Powell.
Her daughter is doing fine now, and works for United Technologies. As explained in a November 4, 2021 Seven Days news story, her daughter’s condition required a lung transplant. There are never enough available lungs to meet the need. Safe, rapid transportation from the donor hospital to the recipient hospital is crucial. Enter Rothblatt’s financial support for Beta Technologies, the solar-powered aircraft firm seen by many as a lynchpin of Vermont’s manufacturing future. When Rothblatt realized that one of Beta founder Kyle Clark’s aircraft could one day quickly, reliably deliver the needed organ, the company received a multi-million investment.
Bina-48 is an AI ‘social android” created by Bina and Martine Rothblatt. A lengthy, interactive conversation between Bina-48 and Bina Rothblatt can be seen on this 2014 video.
BINA 48 (Breakthrough Intelligence via Neural Architecture, 48 exaflops per second processing speed and 48 exabytes of memory) is a social android that uses artificial intelligence based on the memories, attitudes, beliefs and mannerisms of a human being to interact with people. She is a part of the LifeNaut Project, an experiment in Artificial Intelligence and Cyber-Consciousness.
In the Summer of 2014 Bina Rothblatt, who contributed her personal information (along with several other people), visited and talked to Bina48 for the first time at the Terasem Movement Foundation in Vermont. (In addition to the home on a mountain road in Addison County, Martine Rothblatt also has at least one other home, in Florida.)
“Someday I am confident that the real Bina and I will merge into a new super-being,” Bina-48 tells Bina Rothblatt on the video.
“Death is optional,” the flesh-and-blood Bina Rothblatt said.
Martine Rothblatt was the subject of an eye-opening speech delivered this fall at Hillsdale College by 11th Hour journalist Jennifer Bilek. The speech, titled “Big Pharma, Big Tech, & Synthetic Sex Identities: Corporate Interests and ‘Trans Rights” asserts that transgenderism and the blurring of traditional male-female identity is a launching ground for transhumanism, defined by Brittanica.com as “a philosophical and scientific movement that advocates the use of current and emerging technologies—such as genetic engineering, cryonics, artificial intelligence (AI), and nanotechnology—to augment human capabilities and improve the human condition.”
Beginning at 20:53, Bilek discusses Rothblatt’s influential role as a transgender-transhumanist.
We must also take into consideration the ideology of Martine Rothblatt, a renowned American entrepreneur who identifies as transsexual and a transhumanist and who has appropriated the female sex with technologies and drugs.
He co-founded Satellite Radio, owns United Therapeutics, a major biopharmaceutical corporation, worked on the human genome at the UN level, and was mentored into transhumanism by Ray Kurzweil of Google.
Rothblatt created a robot replica of his wife developed by Hanson Robotics. He has written and spoken about transcending flesh and is a strong presence at Out Leadership, the business networking arm of the lgbt lobby he believes transgenderism is an on-ramp to transhumanism and he created a technological transhumanist religion called Terasem, whose credo is we are making god as we are implementing technology that is ever more all-knowing, ever-present, all-powerful and beneficent.
Rothblatt is also a lawyer and the author of the very first gender bill he worked with several other transsexual lawyers to give legal structure to physical dissociation from the sexed body. he has written extensively on the need to overhaul our system of labeling people as male or female based on their genitalia as male or female based on their genitalia and the future of creating humans with reproduction reproductive technologies.
According to the Vermont Secretary of State’s website, Zuckerman was the only candidate who received a campaign contribution from Rothblatt. The July 17, 2022 contribution was for $500.
