superchip implant.

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
we're not far off ...at birth a small electronic chip is inserted just behind the right ear ...no visible scar ...painless procedure.
no more stress, no more uncertainty. no more unhappiness. no more addiction. no more agression.
would it be desirable?

    just think with the coming electro bio chemical digital genetic brain implant there will be no more ...dissatisfaction. no more inner turmoil. no more dissention. no more disenchantment.
    we have already got well into outer modification of the human with silicon ...now we can modify the brain/mind/social aspect of the inner human ...of the soul itself ...it'll be great ...your generation will be able to live in peace and harmony with your children who will have no problems ...

    ...but sometimes the things that make you who you are are fear/sadness etc, so removing them who be inhibiting your personal development throughout life... you'd end up like david blaine and just being a boring f*cker.

    Ohh how I laughed!!!!! And as for the implant, everyone would be the same, there would be no personalities. Your experiences in life are what make you the person you are, whether they are happy, sad, exciting or boring. If everyone enjoyed everything all the time, society as we know it would break down I think.


    Editted to say:

    and can you imagine if the chip broke down, and suddenly a person could feel fear or sadness for the first time in his life.... they guy would go fucking mental!

    but it is coming ...
    genetics and electronics are heading this way.
    if your baby could be geneticaly modified in the womb ...or even before for a measly couple of grand then people will go for it.
    extra inteligence and good looks. the poorer people would of course be left behind.
    if most of the kids on your street had been 'improved' ...and you hadn't you would be left behind. the pressure on parents would be enormous. and if you were modified in 2010 ...and a better upgrade was available to the next kids in 2012 ...could you be upgraded. it is coming.
    which goes to show that yes ...pain and uncertainty are part of our lives in a very big way. and beauty is not some magazine ideal ...removing our faults and flaws will be removing what makes us human and beauty will be a thing of the past.

    i think it iswrong, youcan turn people into mindless zombie and take there feeling away, you disalowing them to feel the feelings that make us human. yes some bad but alot good. miltarys will use in in soliders stop them feeling pain.so they last longer. i think it would tear this fragile world apart.

    the idea will be sold to us first on health grounds. by altering certain genes your child will be guaranteed a life free of so and so ...no one will argue against such health benefits. no disability etc. perfect eyesight a hearing defect corrected before birth.
    then will come emotional stability and stuff. we are very very close to such practices.
    those who wont be able to afford these things realy will be of a lower order. there is coming a superior class of humans on a scary scale. this aint fiction ...this aint the stuff of dreams or nightmares ...this is the kind of stuff now being worked on by big corporations.

    imagine being able to operate at the speed of a pocket calculater!
    i was reading recently of one researcher who has put some powerful chips into his own body. as soon as he walks into the research facility the main frame comp comunicates with him and he comunicates back. telling all the computors in the building what to do. big drug and electronics companies have very secret human implant technology going on ...imagine what the military are up to.
    does it not frighten you that this is the way we're going? it's not the future ...it's happening now.

    NEVER. Never ever ever ever ever will I even let myself consider this for my child. Illegal if need be...in the back of a car if I have no choice in hospital. No flippin way. My child is gona be brought up the natural way...learning things and developing character through pain and suffering. People don't realise that they should be grateful for all the bad things in thier lives cuz it makes them better people because we humans learn and adapt into a superior state.

    I sincerely hope this chip is never invented.


    NO !

    various things along with bioelectronics and genetic technology ...mostly electronics at the moment are already well under way.
    if you escape with your child he'll be considered a savage compared to an enhanced child. he would have no chance of surviving. it's not some nasty plot. it's our consumer society that is the driving force. people are already ordering designer sperm and designer babies so you cannot hold it back i'm afraid.

    i'll see if i can find some links that are seriously freaky ...but very real.

    Coming Soon: A 'Telephone Tooth'
    Fri Jun 28, 2:04 PM ET, 2002
    By THOMAS WAGNER, Associated Press Writer

    LONDON (AP) - Tired of losing your cell phone? Having other people listen in
    on your conversations? What about all the times you've had to turn it off at
    public events, or leave it behind while swimming?

    Inventors Devise 'Telephone Tooth'

    Two British inventors unveiled a prototype of a device Friday that could
    solve those problems.

    But there's a drawback - your dentist would have to install it inside one of
    your molars.

    Unofficially known as the "telephone tooth," the device would allow you to
    receive phone calls, listen to music, even connect to verbal sites on the
    Internet ( news - external web site) without anyone nearby hearing a thing.

    "It felt strange. It was weird," said 8-year-old Caitlin Caddies, who tried
    the prototype Friday at the Science Museum in London. "But I'd be delighted
    to have it if it would allow my friends to call me at night while I was in

    Animals with implanted electrodes in their brains
    have been made to perform a variety of responses
    with predictable reliability as if they were
    electronic toys under human control.

    Yale University School of Medicine


    The once-human being thus controlled would be the
    cheapest of machines to create and operate.

    Electrical Engineer


    In the field of brain physiology, I think it [ESB] is the
    most exiting single discovery....I am almost frightened
    to say what I think might come of this....

    Why don't you write a thesite.org article about it or something? I'm completely against turning man kind - the greatest being on Earth, into mechanical fake puppets for commercialisation and global manipulisation (I'm sure that sounds clever enough...heh).

    You have other views. You should include different views and all that and write a full length article. Even tho I'm against, I'd be well interested. I dunno what the policy is for this tho. I think there's a group of people specifically assigned to writing material, but not sure.

    I'd be happy to write the odd article if possible, too.

    If you had the chip and you never knew what sadness felt like, then feeling normal might be their equivalent of feeling sad. It would cause some hundreds of psychiatric problems. And if people didn't feel bad feelings, like remorse, then they might just turn into insane killers, without feeling bad for what they did.

    if everyones going to get chipped in the very near future so we only feel good and positive and love our leaders ...turning the thing off now and again to feel fully human will be like taking lsd ...one freaky trip.
    beware ...it's coming to you and your family soon!

    The development of replaceable body parts (including brain "cells"), coupled with virtual omniscience (direct neural interfacing between the human brain and all the information in the world, via the Internet), is the final prize of artificial intelligence experts on some of today's university campuses.

    is not about the distant, implausible world of fantasy, but the current research and development projects of the U.S. Defense Department, universities and private companies,"

    Many people believe that, before long, a man of superior intelligence, wit, charm, and diplomacy will emerge on the world scene as a savior. He will seemingly possess a transcendent wisdom that enables him to solve problems and offer solutions to many of today's most perplexing issues.

    His popularity will be widespread. His fans will include young and old, religious and non-religious, male and female. Talk show hosts will interview his colleagues, news anchors will cover his movements, scholars will applaud his uncanny ability at resolving what has escaped the rest of us, and the poor will bow down at his table.

    He will, in every human way, appeal to the best idea of society.

    But according to conservative news sites like Raiders News Update, his profound comprehension and irresistible presence will be the result of an invisible network of thousands of years of collective knowledge. He will, like the pharaohs of Egypt, represent the embodiment of a very old and super-intelligent spirit. Just as Jesus was the "seed of the woman" (Gen. 3:15), he will be the "seed of the serpent."

    It's been assumed for centuries that a prerequisite for his appearing is an all-seeing world order, an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve, and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world, exist beneath his hungry domination.

    At the head of his utopian administration, his single personality will surface. He will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become "a king of fierce countenance" (Dan. 8:23).

    With imperious decree he will facilitate a totalitarian world government. Those who refuse his New World Order will be branded as unpatriotic, and imprisoned (or destroyed) until finally he exalts himself "above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (2 Thess. 2:4).

    For many years the idea of his Orwellian society, where his all-seeing Antichrist-eye watches over the smallest details of our lives and qualifies our human liberties, was considered anathema. The concept that rugged individualism could somehow be sacrificed for his anesthetized universal harmony was repudiated by America's greatest minds.

    But something happened in the 1970's. Following a call by Nelson Rockefeller for the creation of a "New World Order," presidential candidate Jimmy Carter campaigned, saying, "We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics."

    Evidently he struck a chord with world leaders.

    During the 1980's, then president George Bush repeated Carter's one-world dirge, announcing over national television that "a New World Order" had arrived. Following the initial broadcast, he addressed the Congress where he added: "What is at stake is more than one small country [Kuwait], it is a big idea - a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. Such is a world worthy of our struggle, and worthy of our children's future!"

    The current administration's response to Bush Senior's call for a new world order, in which peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law is aspired, has been to authorize increasingly severe surveillance of - and even elimination of - civil liberties.

    The Total Information Awareness System, the controversial Pentagon research program that aims to gather and analyze a vast array of information on Americans, has hired at least eight private companies to work on the effort,[1] while without any official public notice, and without any congressional hearings,[2] the Bush administration continues to push the quick development of the commercial applications that will be overseen by The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a big-brother amalgam of government and private sector sources ala Orwell's 1984.

    "It will extensively mine government and commercial data banks, enabling the FBI, the CIA, and other intelligence agencies to collect information that will allow the government—as noted on Nightline—to essentially reconstruct the movements of citizens. This will be done without warrants from courts, thereby making individual privacy as obsolete as the sauropods of the Mesozoic era."[2]

    Meanwhile, biometrics - the incessantly hyped technology that relies on physical characteristics such as fingerprints, facial and iris patterns, to ID individuals - is emerging as the indisputable security standard of the new corporate realm. The next logical step of The Total Information Awareness System will be to monitor travel, banking, and security authorization using biometric chips implanted in the body according to some futurists.

    As if that was not enough, the Coast Guard confirmed plans just this week to employ 70 Unmanned Drones to monitor people-movements along U.S. Coastlines. If the robotic eyes-in-the-sky are successful, additional robots for vast surveillance and information-analysis will look for suspicious patterns in everything from personal driving habits to the movies you watch, prescriptions you purchase, telephone calls you make, and arguments you have with your spouse or divorcee.

    "It is as if a giant plan is unfolding," one time presidential candidate, Pat Robertson observes. "Everything perfectly on cue."

    While I've disagreed with some of Pat's comments recently (Not while I was a guest on his 700 Club show), I can't help but feel this particular comment - "It is as if a giant plan is unfolding" - is inspired.

    Is The Total Information Awareness System part of the Antichrist's plan? It, or something like it, will be.

    An ancient scheme is unfolding. At the core of the conspiracy a leader of indescribable brutality is about to materialize. His all-seeing, all-controlling quest will make the combined depravities of Antiochus Epiphenes, Hitler, Stalin and Genghis Khan - all of whom were types of the antichrist - look like child's play
