This article will ramble a bit. I just wanted to share some information I learned recently and correct some statements I’ve made in the past.

I was under the impression that Julian Huxley, the first director of UNESCO, coined the term transhumanism in his 1950 essay New Bottles for New Wine. I’ve seen that claim all over the internet but, apparently, it isn’t entirely true.

He did use the term “transhumanism” in New Bottles for New Wine, but it was the 1957 version, which was a book, rather than the 1950 version, which was an essay. The relevant quote is below (note his use of the occult term “illumination”):

“We are already justified in the conviction that human life as we know it in history is a wretched makeshift, rooted in ignorance; and that it could be transcended by a state of existence based on the illumination of knowledge and comprehension, just as our modern control of physical nature based on science transcends the tentative fumblings of our ancestors, that were rooted in superstition and professional secrecy.

The human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself — not just sporadically, an individual here in one way, an individual there in another way, but in its entirety, as humanity. We need a name for this new belief. Perhaps transhumanism will serve: man remaining man, but transcending himself, by realizing new possibilities of and for his human nature.”

Although Huxley is described as the “father of transhumanism,” having popularized the concept, he may have borrowed the term from his close friend, the Jesuit Catholic humanist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who used “trans-humanizing” in his 1949 book The Future of Mankind:

“Liberty: that is to say, the chance offered to every man (by removing obstacles and placing the appropriate means at his disposal) of ‘trans-humanizing’ himself by developing his potentialities to the fullest extent.”

Note the above quote’s similarity to the Socialist conception of “freedom,” which states that true freedom is being able to “express creativity” as an individual while being totally unconstrained by “material scarcity” and “coercive social institutions” (by which they mean traditional culture, responsibilities, and so on).

A UN report on Teilhard explains that he believed humanity is “evolving from a state of, tribal-national awareness to global consciousness [via] a process which he calls ‘planetization'” and that “the forces of evolution have shifted from divergence to convergence.” According to the American Teilhard Association, “[Teilhard’s] thinking regarding the unity of the human community also influenced several key founders of the United Nations.” It’s easy to see why: His worldview perfectly aligns with the United Nations’ Globalist ideology.

Teilhard claimed that the technological singularity would awaken the “Spirit of the Earth” and create a “Noosphere” (‘mind-sphere’) of conjoined consciousness that would envelop the entire world, like the atmosphere. The formation of this “Noosphere,” which Teilhard associates with the second coming of Christ, will signify man’s transition from “transhumanism” to “posthumanism.”

It seems that Teilhard’s ideas were underpinned by his belief in something called the “Omega Point,” whereby the entire universe slowly converges into one final point of absolute unification. He identified this “Omega Point” with the Christian Logos and cites the Book of Revelation when Christ describes himself as “the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.”

All in all, Teilhard’s theories are quite similar to the plot of End of Evangelion — if you’ve seen that movie (if not, sorry for the forthcoming spoiler) — when all life on earth is smushed into formless goop and forcibly “evolved” into a singular hivemind.

To achieve the noble end of smushing humanity into formless goop, Teilhard advocated a one-world religion, something that has been promoted by the United Nations cabal for decades, if not centuries (or millennia, depending on which proportion of the Globalist cabal we are referring to). See, for example, the following quote from UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Muller, known as “the philosopher of the United Nations”:

Today our objectives and efforts must be […] to see the religions globalize themselves into a global spiritual Renaissance in order to give us a universal, cosmic meaning of life on Earth and give birth to the first global, cosmic, universal civilization.


Anyway, the answer to the question “who coined the term ‘transhumanism,’ Julian Huxley or Pierre Teilhard de Chardin?” is ‘neither.’ Some other guy called W. D. Lighthall coined the term in the 1940s but apparently nobody paid any attention to him.
