NeoHipatia of Alexandria was cloned on May 6, 2025. To work the miracle, capillary samples were needed and found in a manuscript of her father, the philosopher and mathematical astronomer Teón, since no original work of the erudite Neo-Platonist remains, of where one could obtain genetic samples.

She went through her infancy and youth in Alexandria, Egypt, under the strict supervision of the Watson and Crick Institute of genetic engineering, dependent on the University of Cairo. The whole project was approved, after numerous amendments, alterations and requirements, by Bioética's "International organization of United Nations." For the approval of the project, the above mentioned organisation imposed some unwaivable maxims: That in the process of cloning not to reject a sole embryo, that the girl should grow up in the healthiest and happiest environment and that, after becoming an adult, she would be completely responsible for the decisions that concerned her future. In her training she  accentuated the humanistic branch of  knowledge: History, Philology, Literature and Philosophy.

NeoHipatia works at present as the subdirector of the Pan-American Institute of the City of Mexico, is an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Philosophy and Letters of the Europa's United States. Oscar Wilde Para coordinates the African Literacy Project and collaborates with several institutions and NGOs as she advises and promotes. In addition she collaborates by volunteering  in many publications by contributing her exceptional point of view.

The draft of Future Times, though with a very defined position (and not public) with regard to human cloning, cannot even begin to  place value on these disquisitions. Future times limits itself to solely publishing the opinions of this young woman, NeoHipatia.

TELETRANSPORTING, TOOL OF THE GODS. A PHILOSOPHICAL APPROXIMATION

THE CLOWN THINKS... - NEOHIPATIA OF ALEXANDRIA
New: Scientists from the University of Salamanca teletransport three grams of Sodium Chloride

 All the literature that the great ocean of current reality encloses, the technological and scientific “tsunami” that overflows around us, shouldn’t let us forget some incontrovertible maxims. Like the one that information isn’t knowledge and that it is very far from being identified as wiseness. My great friend NeoLeonardo da Vinci knows a lot about this...

The fabulous experiment carried out at the University of Salamanca brings us a bit closer to the gift of divine ubiquity, the capacity to be in all places of the demiurge or δημιουργς, although poses, bringing out into the open (out onto the marble of the laboratory, in this case), the question that was worried about by my ever idolized Plato: Vitalism. This trend advocates a holistic conception of reality, for live organisms to function in an integrated way, absolute, as an all and not as a simple mosaic of independent parts. Are we just the sum of the organs and cells that we are composed of, molecules that conform to them, atoms that integrate them, quarks or tiny tesserae that form the last pieces of the matter? If it were like that, such certainty would discard the concept of the spirit, soul or vital energy that wraps around us and that, without doubt, can’t be decomposed into numbered pieces, like the sea in “ The Autumn of the Patriarch” by the legendary author Gabriel García Márquez.

The fabulous experiment perpetrated in Spain poses more questions than answers, starting with the ones in the identity region, Who are we? What are we made of? Are we bits, atoms, both, or something more? Can our thoughts,emotions, dreams and memories be digitalized? I am absolutely skeptical about this last question. If science could ever teletransport a human being, such basic ingredients of human condition would be lost in the intelligible paths of the parallel quantum universes. Aristotle, in his work “Metaphysics” asks the question: What is it that makes a being what it is?
Will those parallel-universes- be necessary for teletransporting – around where our souls roam, those spiritual fractions of what we were, when we die? 
 René Descartes, giving honor to his title as a  “Dualist”, in his “Metaphysical Meditations” concludes that body and soul are different entities. According to this, science should invent an one alternative method for the teletransporting of souls and another that would link them at their destination with the body that bears it. An army of previous philosophers headed by Immanuel Kant, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel or Arthur Schopenhauer tried to shine the light on something that only had fog, they tried to rationalize questions that transcend further away from matter, being their properties, principles and first causes.

 
Pope San Clemente I liked giving the Eucharist in two places at once, simultaneously, in what is known as the phenomenon of bi-location. San Francisco de Asís or San Pío de Pietrelcina also used this “technique” to optimize their time when it came to carrying out their actions. It’s not my job to grant a scientific explanation to this miraculous fact, its mere pretension could get close to  bordering heretics, one of with scrupulous respect I have never wanted to cross. The artifices of the Highness are inscrutable but I’m afraid that, unfailingly, some bored scientist will string together the new technological finding with those prodigies and will sustain that San Clemente must have used an Advanced Matter Decoder and used a short cut to celebrate his synchronized masses through a parallel universe. Another branch of philosophy, apart from metaphysics, is ethics. Ethics is based on some principles that implicate a final desirable value in oneself and not just a means to an end. What one can do doesn’t imply what one should do. Teletransportation, after a superficial analysis, doesn’t seem to itself break any ethical principle and can only originate conflicts by its the use that it may have, just like any technological tool. If those Saints used some kind of teletransportation to bi-locate themselves, it seems impeccable, from the ethical point of view, that they do it, if it made their objectives of doctrinal diffusion easier. Just as the railway was used for transporting doctors that saved lives, it was also used for outlaws to commit their misdeeds. It only occurs to me, offhand, a ‘but’, from an ethical point of view, of the new technological “miracle”, but can be extended to any other: That the teletransporting of matter and, in a hazy future, of people is not used to accentuate the social imbalances between the so-called first and third world. More on the contrary, if the invention can re-balance the socio-cultural scale and provide the needy with the goods that they lack, instantly, it will become one of the most powerful tools that Human beings have ever disposed of, honoring of its noble adjective.      

To conclude, an almost Taoist reflection. Tao (path, in Chinese), a concept that can’t be described with words or be conceived in thought. He who follows the Tao does nothing more than follow his natural tendency, what his impulses dictate. Centering myself on the concept, life is a path, a journey, and in it resides, for many, the essence, the secret to happiness, the most profound knowledge of oneself. A journey is an illusion, a future perspective where we will find ourselves, this much more important than the fact of arriving to our destination. If, through technology, we eliminate physical journeys, if we abstrict the reflection with our noses stuck to glass, if one day physical space and its’ distances lack significance..., if we snatch a tool of the gods without being one, without being prepared on a spiritual level... what will become of us!!! Just like what has always happened from the beginnings of Mankind, technology is far ahead of the knowledge of the ‘I’. My consolation is that scientists suggest that we are still far from achieving human teletransportation. Anyway, a few centuries of truce in order to get to know ourselves a little better.  

A rhetorical question for the end. Well, maybe I should have written ‘THE’ and not ‘a’, because this question, posed in a more traditional way, is the one that humanity has flagellated themselves with from the beginning of time: Will those parallel-universes- be necessary for teletransporting – around where our souls roam, those spiritual fractions of what we were, when we die?

PRINCESS ANDROMEDA’S QUARKS: A MYTHOLOGICAL APPROXIMATION
Bandera España
ESPAÑOL
THE CLOWN THINKS... - NEOHIPATIA OF ALEXANDRIA
New: Intelligent signs of extraterrestrial origin coming from The Andromeda Galaxy
detected for the first time in History, by the Drake spatial radio-telescope.


And Perseus, a semi-god in Greek mythology, saved Princess Andromeda from dying in the jaws of a marine monster sent by Poseidon, the fifth son of the god of time, Chronos, and the Titanide Rhea. After setting her free from the rock that the Gallic illustrator Gustave Dore drew her in, he married her, the princess, daughter of the kings of Ethiopia- Cassiopeia and Cepheus, whose beauty rivaled even that of the daughters of the King of the Sea, the Nereids. The beauty of the spiral Andromeda galaxy, with a stellar disk of more than 220,000 light years has been multiplied these days by the mystery that its’ intelligent emissions enclose. Planet Earth has turned stony faced as if Perseus had come down himself from his constellation near to Taurus and had shown us all Medusa’s Gorgon head.      


 What is the message that Andromeda screams into the great celestial night? The hermeneutical job of deciphering it which was given to the scientists and their quantum colleagues struck us as an enormous complexity. Belerofonte, son of Poseidon and Niso, killed Chimera on the back of Pegasus, the winged horse that Perseus inherited, but upon doing it slashed the possibility of that lion headed, goat bodied, snake tailed monster being able to catch her and take her prisoner as we had hoped. Revealing the content of the still impenetrable extraterrestrial message could possibly kill our chimeras of a fair, impartial universe of civilized civilizations, eclectic...

 
The great stellar cumulous lets out quarks, pitimini atoms, like Virgil did eclogues, which enclose promises of intelligent civilizations, of dream worlds.
 
...ones. Its content might disappoint us. I don’t think so…  Andromeda, the princess, the galaxy, like said before, radiated beauty, maybe in all senses. What makes us think that the message contains data, pure and simple information? Maybe it contains panegyrics to a pleiade of Olympic gods that are found closer to them, or cosmogonic allegories of an unsurpassable beauty. Maybe the new mathematic axiom generators that produce new sensations, that is to say, the alien artists, use the radio waves as a vehicle to transmit their work, like in another time us earthlings published them on a canvas or online.

Picking up the glove that my great friend NeoLeonardo stretches out to me, maybe our Olympic gods are the same ones that send us the radiomessage, whose coming would implicate the first gathering of contact between deities and mortals, from Homer and Virgil. Making ridiculous, questioning our theological concepts is an obligatory subject for scientists, even if the Truth that connects science and god are united, united even though we insist on disassociating them with myopic stubbornness, drawing out two realities apart, like the rock of knowledge and the mountain of God. But maybe we are condemned to being the kings of Corinth-Sisyphus- for all eternity, obstinate to error. To start, we think of dominating extraterrestrial intelligence, which neither rhetoric nor lyric can probably define.
    
Leaving Greek mythology aside for a moment (or at least trying) but without navigating outside of the Aegean Sea we find ourselves with the so-called Fermi paradox: “Common belief that the Universe has numerous technologically advanced civilizations, combined with our observations that suggest the exact opposite, is paradoxical, suggesting that either our knowledge or our observations are defective or incomplete.” This is what the anthropic principle postulates, that the complex equilibrium in order to produce intelligent life would have only come about by a colossal cosmic coincidence, on Earth. Now we know that it’s not so and my God!!! The Italian physicist Enrico Fermi made it easy for me to rescue the myth of the cave, of my love, my idol, Plato: Only thanks to knowledge will we distinguish the world of appearances from the real world. As you can see, caught in the classic vague legacy haunted by dungeons, in this round trip journey that really doesn’t let me escape from Ithaca. 

The majestic Andromeda galaxy, of almost a fifth of magnitude view from our home, located in our celestial semi-sphere between Delta, Pi and Mu Andromedae, has surprised all of us like the beauty of the Princess of Ethiopia surprised Perseus. The great stellar cumulous lets out quarks, pitimini atoms, like Virgil did eclogues, which enclose promises of intelligent civilizations, of dream worlds. I don’t know if the scientists realized it, but the marvelous discovery revealed to us that the god Chronos unified all the times in the universe, at least, the one from the inextricable signal and we, the Andromeda guys could be born, live and die in a question of picoseconds, or on the contrary, in thousands of eons, their signals made us totally unintelligible to live existences at very different rhythms. Thanks for that to the youngest of the titans, the son of Gea and Uranus. So, because of that we interpret its symphony of quarks, because of their variety our own ignorance is revealed, living at the same universal rhythm as our “older brothers”. 

The Andromeda galaxy lets out quarks, which will make us renounce prejudices, antiquated ideas about the concept of the universe, understanding it better, loving it. If the universe were fair there should be symmetry, reciprocity and there was, retroactive, in human mythology: Princess Andromeda renounced everything, including her old fiancé Agenor, brother of King Cepheus of Ethiopia. Princess Andromeda, the most beautiful of the Nereids, the beautiful nymphs of Poseidon, renounced everything because she loved Perseus with every last quark of her beautiful being.
