About James Tunney
After a career in law, the author decided to re-channel his energy and concentrate on painting and writing. He has exhibited paintings in a number of countries. He has written two books on mysticism, which will be part of a series on spiritual consciousness. Both contain analysis and poetry. He has also written two dystopian novels. His latest book Human Entrance to Transhumanism follows up on Empire of Scientism and TechBondAge in a series on Scientocracy.
The creative work is driven by a desire to explore the role of the individual as a spiritual being in a world of increasing technological control. All books are linked by a strong belief in the power of the individual spirit and the importance of consciousness. They represent a call to every individual to evolve spiritually, learning from perennial philosophy, ultimately to form a global, invisible, network of autonomous people to protect the human spirit against technological control.

Throughout the ages, in text and in practices, secretly and openly, spiritual and mystical people focused on the central concept of the force of light. A recurrent idea is that spirit is light and trapped in the world of material or flesh and needs to be released in some way. Many mystics have created a path of illumination to allow our inherent genius of light be liberated to return to its ultimate source. The mystery is about who and what we are and how we might see our spiritual evolution. At the same time scientism seems to attack spiritual activity.
In the matrix the spirit lies
Destined to fight towards the light
To struggle in the harsh, hard brightness
To seek the subtle true light
This book is divided in two parts. The first part is an exploration that seeks to examine the approach within spirituality and mysticism to light in the context of scientific examination of light. The latter consists of lines, poetry or sutras. Poetic expression sets out the author's vision of a whole path of light reflecting perennial wisdom. Addressing mind and heart, the reader will find something that will help them reflect on their own beliefs or open an entirely new vista.
Transhumanism is a movement which aims to remake humanity through technology. Humanity will be fabricated and natural evolution will end. It is merely a new manifestation of an older desire for scientific control of the world.
Transhumanism seeks fabrication by fascination.
We have been entranced by media propaganda. We are yielding the spirit of the race. Transhumanism represents a technique akin to magic. If we do not become aware of the danger of use of enhancement as a subterfuge for mass control we may end in a magicians dream.
While transhumanists might genuinely want longer lives, more intelligence and more happiness, the implications of the movement are much deeper beyond the realm of individuals legitimately choosing their own path in life. The transhumanist narrative as part of the black magic of materialism is an ad for add-ons that does not add up. Without a commitment to the individual, human person and the importance of their consciousness the human race will be sacrificed.
We are entering a tech-totalitarian society wherein we will be slaves. We have allowed ourselves have our freedom constrained in the guise of convenience. We are going to live in bondage of technology and the people who control those networks. Puppet-masters exert power over hi-tech networks beyond democratic supervision to exercise control over us that will lead to totalitarianism. The appearance of technical progress camouflages a regression in freedom and liberty. We are tech-slaves who will live in bondage before our demise. This is the TechBondAge and we will live in techbondage.
The domain of BDSM suggests a reflection of the new relationship between the former citizen and their new masters and mistresses. We yield our sovereignty to those who will dominate us by control of networks, tech-cage and electronic straitjacket. In some ways the ideas and iconography of adult entertainment, play or amusement that have come from sub-cultures to mainstream reflect the effect of the new domination-submission regime emerging. We must do what we are told by machines, tools and ties of the network in the TechBondAge. We are relinquishing our sovereignty on the basis of our convenience.
It is time to examine the strange upside-down world we have entered. You are caught in a web, captured in a net, on a line, E-mancipated, remotely-controlled. Soon you will be a mere node, a machine part of a big machine. It is time to stop sacrificing our spiritual sovereignty and time to reject servitude and victimhood.
We are in danger of ceding power to a centralised cadre of bureaucrats, business and billionaires who assume authority to exercise power as they wish, believing they know better. The materialist paradigm has given rise to an ideology of scientism, an idolatry of technology and an instrumentality of networks, webs of control and surveillance that is shared by communists and capitalists alike.
Scientism is the expansion of science beyond appropriate boundaries to become an exclusive dogma. Hitherto separate and competing forces are coalescing in a community based on application of science to governance. Some scientist have described this movement towards a scientific world government. Now we are told that such things are delusions.
The emergent Empire of Scientism will be hostile to religion, spirituality and human rights and will promote transhumanism, posthumanism and represent the demise of homo sapiens. These will be the resulting conditions as conceived by certain mainstream scientists and their sycophants. Unless we wake up and embrace our spiritual consciousness we are doomed to suffer a totalitarian regime or 'globetechgov' before our demise.
