Mr. M.N. shared this article with us, and when I read it, I admit, I shivered, because the implications of this are rather obvious for those of us in the "control-the-interpretation-control-the-fulfillment" school of prophecy-watching. The source here, you'll note, is no less than the BBC:
And it's all being done to "make things easier and more intuitive":
"That's all because he has a tiny RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip, about the size of a grain of rice, implanted in his hand. Soon, others among the 700 people expected to occupy the complex will also be offered the chance to be chipped. Along with access to doors and photocopiers, they're promised further services in the longer run, including the ability to pay in the cafe with a touch of a hand."
"Today it's a bit messy - we need pin codes and passwords. Wouldn't it be easy to just touch with your hand? That's really intuitive."
Uh huh... sure. But even the BBC is careful to note that the real goal here is what many have long suspected - since the 1970s if not before in fact - that such chipping will be made mandatory:
"But Hannes Sjoblad says he and the Swedish Biohacking Group have another objective - preparing us all for the day when others want to chip us. "We want to be able to understand this technology before big corporates and big government come to us and say everyone should get chipped - the tax authority chip, the Google or Facebook chip." Then, he says, we'll all be able to question the way the technology is implemented from a position of much greater knowledge."
But this is, of course, precisely the problem. Does one really trust those governments and corporations not to include "other" types of technologies in such chips? After all, the transhumanists are talking about chips to interface directly with the brain, to give "virtual reality" vacations, downloading and uploading individual memories, and there are darker players. Consider only Dr. Jose Delgado's "psychotronically controlled society" first detailed decades ago in his now classic (and horrific) Physical Control of the Mind, where he minces no words: to have a thoroughly controlled society, one will have to implant everyone, and manipulate and control their emotions remotely. Does one really want all one's biometric and financial transactions to be directly interfaced with "the Beast", the huge computer in Brussels handling all the financial clearing for SWIFT?
This is beyond a trial run so "we'll all be able to question the way the technology is implemented from a position of much greater knowledge." Knowledge has nothing to do with it, for the goals have been clearly announced. And like that young man in Sweden, the choice is one between the "convenience" of a dehumanizaing "techno-humanity" and one's own humanity. Of course, there will be the usual blather about "trust" and the usual denunciations of those who refuse such procedures as being "conspiracy theorists." But there's no theory about the goals, for the BBC has been at least honest enough to report them.
Hopefully, there will be enough "absolutely nots!" out there. The transhumanists speak of the "singularity," and Dr.Delgado wanted to reduce entire populations to a mass to be controlled by such implants. That is the real singularity that they seek: the elimination of the individual, and the ultimate in a controlled, docile, "interfaced" population, the "singularity" of the hive.
See you on the flip side...
