“Transhumanism” by Mauricio Monagas


What is transhumanism?
They have this idea
About making human beings
Higher than God.

How do we define God?
He is not the Almighty Force,
That controls all morality.
God is a lot more disconnected
Than we believe him to be.

Although he exists
Inside of our consciousness,
And he acts inside of us,
Outside of these beings.

What they propose to me
Is this transhumanist project:

Where all human beings coexist,
And all of their consciousness,
And all of these cultures,
and all these differences,
and all these similarities
Are together, inside of one mind
Which controls the entire human race.

And besides, we want to talk about
How we have all evolved,
And we are all ready
For this point of evolution.

Where everybody is interconnected,
But let’s admit the truth,
If we are in the year 2017
And people still want to be

Mean to others because of the color
Of their skin, I think it is
Completely unnecessary to say
We want evolution to lead us this way.

Because in reality, it is all inside
Of the mind of a few people who are
The leaders of this world,
And want to see humanity controlled.

Inside of this one mind,
They are going to choose not to be,
Part of this one mind,
Because they want to control this mind,
And they are going to be the gods.
And we will be the masses,
And that’s going to be control inside this axis.

So don’t be such a fool, and don’t feel controlled,
Even though, they say the words that make you swirl,
And I want to let you know that this is fucking crazy.
Because my individuality and physical body
Are what make me the being that I am,
They are what allow me to be a poet and shaman.

If I want to say that I am, inside this definition,
And even though language is a limited mechanism,
It’s not going to be this next mechanism,
Where this control and singular mind,
Is going to make this human being evolve,
Like it’s only a matter of time,
But we have to realize that these things we want to make,
Are going to be fire for the human race.

And I admit it, and I love you all for saying this,
For giving me this information and letting me make this,
But Goddamn I love you guys, and I really do, but I
Wish you could feel the way that I do, because
All this love comes from suffering, because without love
I cannot measure my suffering. And without my suffering,
I cannot measure my love. And I realize it’s just going to be
One concept up above. And it’s just going to be reason,
So if I share this consciousness with you,
It’s not going to mean anything,
Unless you pay your dues.

And even if I have to pay my dues for this,
I am not going to pay my dues, to make you feel this.
Because you know that this is free, and this is
Emotion that I perceive, and I want you, to make you,
And I wanted to make you feel this way,
And everyone in the world can evolve in this way.

Because we don’t need a machine to tell us how it slays,
We’re all human beings and we have these feelings,
Because that’s what makes us who we are,
Every fucking animal in this world,
And even the vegetable world and the minerals,
Everything has a fucking existence and life,
Because from here, to a couple thousand years,
We’re going to see, how it strikes.
And even if it breaks down, and even if we give it life,
It’s a machine, but it’s a machine that we gave life.
And even if you don’t want to admit it, well that’s its strife.

Human beings, we are not the highest thing in this world,
Now you want to talk about other aliens in the universe
Who had the same conclusions as us,
and aliens that I have turned and have transcended their bodies.

Do we want to transcend our own bodies?
When we have not dealt with our own demons.
That’s what I mean, because we still have voices
And treasons, and we have this idea of what love is
And what hate is, and how are we going to become one being?
When we have all these ideas in and hell,
A lot of people feel comfortable
But I’m not the type of person to feel like it’s normable.
Because me, personally, I still have a lot to live,
And I still draw pleasure from grabbing a fruit off of the tree,
And it is something so basic, like if it’s animalistic.

And even rapping these words gives me a certain pleasure,
And saying these things, and knowing and feeling,
And putting my hand behind my back, and feeling my spine,
And those things, ridges inside my behind, and feeling
This meat inside of my body and not having to worry
About anything that’s going to make it run,
Because my body runs perfectly inside this society.

And I don’t want to say that we need to evolve beyond that,
Because I love this world, and I love the body that gave me that,
And I love this sensation, and even if though I might say that this
Perception is a single person’s, and even though we might say that this
Is all an illusion,
And there is a higher dimension above this,
Where they view us.
And say I am entertained by watching a human being rap,
Right now it is crazy, it is fucking crack,
You know what?
Fuck it, because that’s existence,
And even if we have to pay dues to a God that doesn’t listen,
I fucking love this world, and I am sure you will too.
And as long as I find my love, you will too.

And that’s the end.
Because love is the secret,
I wish I could have seen her,
But I am not ready yet.
