In 1954 Qian Xuesen, or Hsue-Shen Tsien (Chinese: 钱学森; 11 December 1911 – 31 October 2009) an Chinese astrophysicist, aerospace engineer, mathematician and Cybernetician a member of the Manhattan Project, responsible for worldwide nuclear proliferation and Chinese Space Agency was under house arrest from the CIA under charges of spying.
He wrote a monograph (a research paper on a specific topic or field) on Control Theory named Engineering Cybernetics. That research became known as the establishment of Engineering Cybernetics, the foundation of knowledge and application of Automatic Control Systems and its relation to the biological being.
Reversing the words Engineering Cybernetics Sumeet Singh founder of Posh Python created the terminology Cybernetics Engineer to define the role title of one who partakes in engineering cybernetics.
Cybernetics has been ill defined throughout our history. One of the most well known definitions of Cybernetics meaning is that of Norbert Wiener (1894 – 1964) who identified cybernetics as concerned with "control and communication in the animal and the machine". During the Macy conferences (1941 - 1960) a series of conferences of which likeminded thinkers of sciences and medicine gathered to define the meanings of various ideas it was during a certain conference that Cybernetics was characterised as the study of "circular causal and feedback mechanisms in biological and social systems".
Through the turn of the century bio-hackers have drawn influence from Cybernetics theory and Science fiction to modify their bodies with electronics and metal in an attempt to merge man and machine. Tv shows such as The Six Million Dollar Man and animations such as Akira (1988), Ghost in the Shell (1997) and science fiction novelists such as Philip K. Dick's famous work on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (1968) gave humans an early glimpse of how we can modify ourselves.
Drawing inspiration throughout history, pioneers such as Amal Graafstra and his work on Dangerous Things, Yoshiyuki Sankai founder of Cyberdyne, and Steve Haworth and his work on subdermal implants It was decided through decades of research that a role was to be created to define those scientists, doctors, engineers or bio hackers that research and manipulate bioengineering material.
When Sumeet Singh opened Posh Python (2019) he done so as the prodigy of the unnamed Cybernetics Engineers before him to have a dedicated space in this world, an organisation to espouse those beliefs, rights, and to showcase that work to the global audience to start the cybernetic revolution with an aim to change the human race to advance ourselves through merging with machine.
Our history was based on research and the realms of science fiction, from which we promise to take that mantle and lift anyone else whomever so wishes to desire, to take crown and leadership to spearhead the Cyborgisation revolution of the world.
