The self-actualizing tendency of predictions

Yesterday, Ken Cragg’s look at the new technology in the wrong hands was reposted here and this was included:

Nanotechnology enables the miniaturisation of electronics such as circuits, sensors, optics, and other devices that make use of precious metals. Using less precious metals reduces production costs. The field of nanotechnology is rapidly advancing and it’s a field in which scientists are trying to manipulate things at the molecular and atomic level. Microrobots designed using biomimicry principles are being developed that have a flagella propulsion system derived from bacteria. “This can enable a microrobot to travel independently within the human body…”

At some future point, when a nano-device for human implantation is manufactured, the nano-device need not contain the personal and biometric details, medical records or other information about an individual before being implanted. The nano-device would possibly get into the human body via food/drink, injection or medication. Once inside the human body, the nano-device migrates and attaches to a location in the human body where it is less likely to be dislodged.

When an individual passes an RFID-reader, the RFID-reader gets the ID number of the nano-device while the surrounding face-recognition techology and other biometric technology positively identify the individual. Once satisfied that the individual has been positively identified, personal details and other info about the correct individual can then be electronically transfered to the correct nano-device. Transfer of information can be done by any embedded sensor that is interoperable with the nano-device.

An implanted nano-device would become an individual’s means of identification that contained all of their personal details, biometrics, and other information. If the government switched off an individual’s nano-device, they would become a non-citizen and officially no longer exist. The individual would no longer have ID that connected them to any kind of contract or official documentation and as a result of that, their tenancy, mortgage and/or property deeds would be rendered void and they would be made homeless.

The non-citizen would no longer have employment or access to benefits; they would be unable to access any finances they have in a bank/building society; they would be unable to buy food without ID and they would be unable to access emergency services, medical services or central/local government services. Without ID the non-citizen would lose access to just about everything and there would probably be severe repercussions for any citizen(s) who tried to help a non-citizen.

Why must a look at the application of extant technology, such as Ken’s above be seen as paranoia, as one commenter wrote?    Does the worthy commenter think these people are not thinking of these things and trying to put them in place?   Anyone knowing the mindset of Them knows that there are recurring elements – huge plans for the world, seeing themselves at the hub, basically incompetent people with big ideas which will cost you money, thinking nothing of ruining and enslaving you for their greater goal.

The biblical quote which does the damage is Revelation 13:17:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Now that quote might not even refer to the current day, might not even have meant this sort of technology – it could have been referring to any civilization from the past.   However, the line exists and as it does, the enemy can also read that line and that’s what I mean by the self-actualizing tendency of predictions.   It’s not unlike someone in the middle ages visualizing a flying machine and so, when it is eventually constructed, it mirrors those old drawings in outward form.

The issue is not whether that quote is accurate or not, the issue is that much of America, bible-belt and further afield, knows of it and worries about it in these times.   And it is not in the realm of conjecture that the SRAs and DARPAs of the world will find that useful and try to accommodate that fear, reaping the max from it.

UPDATE:  This comment from yesterday:

There is no real need to foresee new technologies – existing technology can be used in ways we would never approve of. See this for example – it’s just an observation but in my view a chilling one.

    Hello, James —

    Great post. I’d read about some of these things a couple of years ago. The medication with nanoparticles, which could at some point be detected by anyone in authority from doctors to employers, is particularly sinister. I think a lot of underground GPs will be popping up to offer their services sub rosa so that people can avoid this.

    Re Revelation 13:17: I wrote a whole series on Revelation, usig a Lutheran pastor’s study of the book. I also dipped into Matthew Henry’s commentary. Here’s my link to Revelation 13:

    Shall get over there asap.

    A couple of brief excerpts:

    ‘Both our commentators — 18th century and 21st century — say that the mark is not physical but spiritual or one of allegiance. In either case, it is a mark of damnation because the person with the mark chooses to ally himself with the beast.’

    In Luther’s time, the Antichrist was (and according to their catechism is) the Catholic Church. As Luther explained it:

    ‘By disfranchisement, allowing none to enjoy natural, civil, or municipal rights, who will not worship that papal beast, that is, the image of the pagan beast.’

    The Lutheran pastor wrote:

    ‘But, this is key: The number 666 has no relevance for us today! It was the number of Nero and was given to St. John in this vision so that he, and we through his testimony, would know what Satan looks like when he is manifesting himself as the beast in the world.’

    The plethora of apocalyptic websites can really mislead people, which is why I did a series to educate myself. The rest is on my Essential Bible Verses page at the end.
