With the designated purpose of ‘euthanasia and execution‘ , the “Euthanasia Coaster” is a concept for a real steel roller coaster that has been created to “show the future of humans and technology.” The creator of the coaster, Julijonas Urbonas, says the machine is engineered to take the life of a human being with “elegance and euphoria.” The idea of the coaster is to send out 24 people, all of which come back dead. A number of anti-human scientists are now hailing the concept as a method of execution that ‘highlights the issues that come with life extension’.
The coaster design begins with a steep-angled lift to the 1,670 foot top, which would take 2 minutes for the 24 passengers to reach. Afterwards, there would be a 1,600 foot drop that would bring the coaster up to 220 mph. Flattening out, the coaster would then begin the process of cerebral hypoxia, or lack of oxygen to the brain. The ride’s seven total inversions would last for 60 seconds, starting with tunnel vision, black out, and loss of consciousness. After first or second inversion, the coaster would cause cerebral anoxia, leaving the passengers brain dead.
After the execution ride, the passenger train enters a straight in which the unloading of the brain dead bodies would take place.
Execution Coaster ‘Flagship Exhibition” In Dublin Science Gallery
Transhumanism science organization “HUMAN+” displayed the concept of the Euthanasia Coaster at the Science Gallery in Dublin from April through June 2011. Presented as the flagship exhibition, HUMAN+ said that the ride “highlights the issue inherent in life-extension.” Praising the ride, the stated application of which on thedesigner’s official site is euthanasia and execution, the director of the Science Gallery Michael John Gorman said it allowed people to leave live in a ‘euphoric state’.
In an article published on the Guardian website, Gorman stated:
“Some of the works exhibited in HUMAN+ highlight the issues inherent in life-extension. Euthanasia Coaster by Julijonas Urbonas is designed to deal with the ultimate boredom of longevity by allowing people to leave life in a euphoric state through an amusement park ride designed to kill.”
HUMAN+ is a major advocate of the transhumanistic agenda, though founder Gorman frequently romanticizes death. Coaster designer Julijonas Urbonas also appears to have a deep relationship with death and mental illness. On his website, another listed ‘project’ is a tool that allows bulimics to more easily induce vomiting. Along with a photo of an obese woman using the tool, Urbonas says the bulimia tool is “designed for the elegant ritual of the eviction of the contents of the stomach.”
Urbonas goes on to describe the project in further detail:
“For those enlightened, still believing in the possibility of dissolving the body into the weightless photons, the ritual of vomiting, both symbolically and physiologically, might help to achieve this dream. Some are already practicing it, people like anorexics and bulimics, celebrating the abandonment of the body. “
