For years, many have mocked the idea of
implantable microchips and cyborgs as both conspiracy theories and
Anyone who so much as mentioned these
possibilities to their neighbor risked being labeled either as a
religious fanatic or delusional and paranoid. However, as they have
become more and more prevalent in everyday society, it has become
increasingly difficult to ridicule these concepts.
For instance, with stories like the recent Singularity Hub article
entitled, “Revolutionary New Brain Chip Allows Monkeys To Grasp AND
Feel Objects Using Their Thoughts,” these emerging technological
possibilities are almost impossible to ignore.
This article discusses how scientists have recently announced the
creation of an implantable device that can be placed in the brain
and which will allow for the control of computers by thought.
Dr. Miguel Nicolelis and company have already tested these devices in
monkeys with stunningly accurate results. In addition to allowing
the user to control the computer by thought, it also allows the user
to feel the virtual object it is manipulating.
Of course, this device is not the first of its kind. For years,
implants have allowed monkeys to control computer cursors and even
robotic arms in laboratory settings.
In the most recent experiment (Active
Tactile Exploration Using a Brain-Machine-Brain Interface), two macaque monkeys were trained to
control a virtual arm represented on the computer screen and use the
arm to “grasp” virtual objects. The difference between this latest
experiment and those that have preceded it, however, is that these
monkeys were able to actually feel the objects they were grasping.
The good news is that this could provide individuals who have lost
limbs with more than a mere prosthetic replacement.
Indeed, it would
be able to offer them a prosthetic that comes complete with the
sense of touch. As the quality of prosthetics continue to improve,
this technology could no doubt go a great distance toward replacing
lost limbs with something more than simple equipment that allows
merely for basic mobility.
Yet mobility, for some, is still the main goal. Miguel Nicolelis and
his associates who conducted the experiment have expressed desire to
take the technology to the next level.
In conjunction with
Again Project, there is allegedly a concerted effort to,
full mobility to patients suffering from a severe degree of
Nicolelis’ lab at Duke University is already working toward this
Because the ultimate goal of a return of full mobility to a
person experiencing such paralysis will require support for the body
itself, the scientists are also developing what they call a
“wearable robot” to encase the person who is being implanted.
Yes, I said a wearable robot.
And yes, a wearable robot can also be described as an exoskeleton.

The brain chips - if they work -
will be a technological triumph by themselves. Custom designed,
the brain chips will be low-power and wireless, transmitting
their signals to a processing unit worn on the patient’s belt
about the size of a cell phone.
That brain activity will then be
translated to digital motor signals which will control the
actuators across the joints of the exoskeleton. Force and
stretch indicators throughout the exoskeleton will signal back
to the patient’s brain the whereabouts of his or her joints and
That technology is being created which
may enable the lame to walk again is obviously good news.
However, for everything good in the world, there is an evil twin.
This technology not only provides for the possibility of some darker
applications, but, considering those who are currently guiding the
destiny of the world, it almost ensures them.
If we allow society to
continue to move in the direction it is currently headed, these
technologies simply do not bode well for the future of humanity as
we know it.
For years, shadowy and nefarious agencies like
DARPA have openly
discussed creating drones designed to look like
other animals. Largely, these creations have been robotic, with the
appearance of being an insect, but actually being nothing more than
a sophisticated remote controlled or pre-programmed drone.
Going one giant step further, and in direct relationship to the
style of brain tampering spoken about early in this article, DARPA
has unveiled other projects as well. As far back as 2007, DARPA
announced that it was planning to not only build but grow cyborg
moths and other insects for spying purposes.
The program, Hybrid Insect
Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (HI-MEMS), involves the
construction of a,
“tiny lepidopterine infiltration
borg by growing a living moth around a ‘micro-mechanical
Essentially, DARPA is implanting a
“metallic core” into the moths which will function as a cloak for
the metal center.
This is something that bears repeating. Instead of functioning as an
exoskeleton like what was discussed in Nicolelis’ project, the cores
will actually wear the bodies.
As Lewis Page
wrote for The Register,
“If Dr. Lal [DARPA scientist
involved in the project] was using vast Austrian bodybuilders
rather than moths, we’d be talking Terminator yet again (this
happens rather a lot when one starts looking at the US defense
Of course, there is little doubt that if
DARPA is releasing this much information on HI-MEMS, the project has
already been attempted, tested, and perfected a long time ago.
only new to the general public and the few scientists who have been
chosen to release the information to the population for the purposes
of prepping them for the coming
New World Order.
As Rod Brooks of MIT’s computer science and artificial intelligence
lab (CSAIL) was quoted as saying,
“This is going to happen. It’s not
science like developing the nuclear bomb, which costs billions
of dollars. It can be done relatively cheaply.”
He goes on,
“A bunch of experiments have been
done over the past couple of years where simple animals, such as
rats and cockroaches, have been operated on and driven by
joysticks, but this is the first time where chip has been
injected in the pupa stage and ‘grown’ inside it.”
“First time.” Yeah right.
Nevertheless, Brooks continues to discuss the future of
technological implants in humans when he says,
Biological engineering is coming.
There are already more than 100,000
people with cochlear implants, which have a direct neural
connection, and chips are being inserted in people’s retinas to
combat macular degeneration. By the 2012 Olympics, we’re going
to be dealing with systems which can aid the oxygen uptake of
There’s going to be more and more technology in our bodies...
there’s going to be a lot of moral debates.
Moral debates there may be, but there is
also no doubt that the world is more and more readily coming to
accept biological intrusion and top-down control as a result of
their constant training at the hands of the television, video games,
and indoctrination at the hands of the education system.
only take a look at the behavior of anyone under the age of thirty
in the presence of any modern interactive technology to see the
writing on the wall.
In this regard,
The Singularity Movement is a perfect example of the
coming scientific dictatorship and the enthusiasm of some to accept
Singularity can be defined, very simply, as the moment when
human and machine merge together. It is a philosophy that is gaining
more and more steam with the general public as a result of its
gradual introduction and promotion by the media (television, games,
etc.) and prominent individuals like Ray Kurzweil and
TIME magazine’s Lev Grossman
Singularity in this way:
Maybe we’ll merge with them to
become super-intelligent cyborgs, using computers to extend our
intellectual abilities the same way that cars and planes extend
our physical abilities.
Maybe the artificial intelligences will
help us treat the effects of old age and prolong our life
indefinitely. Maybe we’ll scan our consciousnesses into
computers and live inside them as software, forever, virtually.
Maybe the computers will turn on humanity and annihilate us. The
one thing all these theories have in common is the
transformation of our species into something that is no longer
recognizable as such to humanity circa 2011. This transformation
has a name: Singularity.
Singularity is obviously a movement that
has been promoted from the top-down.
This is easily seen by the fact
that the backers of the Singularity movement are the usual suspects
including NASA and GOOGLE, as well as individuals like
Bill Gates in
Ray Kurzweil. Not only that, but major governments have
been preparing for the eventuality of a massive merger between man
and machine for some time.
For instance, in a report by Richard Norton-Taylor, written for The
Guardian in 2007, entitled “Revolution, flashmobs, and brain chips
A grim vision of the future,” Norton-Taylor relays the findings of a
90-page report administered and released by the British Ministry of

By 2035, an implantable 'information
chip' could be wired directly to the brain. A growing
pervasiveness of information communications technology will
enable states, terrorists or criminals, to mobilize 'flashmobs,'

Singularity is also a movement that has
its roots in eugenics and the desire of the ruling elites for
complete control over the mind, body, and soul of every human being
on the planet.
Oddly enough, while some may dispute this claim, this
movement’s roots in eugenics is relatively open.
comments made by the RAND corporation in its 2001 report,
Technology Revolution - Bio/Nano/Materials Trends and Their Synergies
with Information Technology by 2015.
The results could be astonishing.
Effects may include significant improvements in human quality of
life and life span... continued globalization, reshuffling of
wealth, cultural amalgamation or invasion with potential for
increased tension and conflict, shifts in power from nation
states to non-government organizations and individuals... and
the possibility of human eugenics and cloning.
With this in mind, the developments
presented in the Singularity Hub article which I discussed early on,
take a more sinister tone.
As the RAND corporation states in its report, the introduction of
Singularity will most likely involve a great improvement in living
standards for the handicapped. At least it will at first.
Eventually, the movement will begin to encompass convenience and
will come to be seen as trendy and fashionable. Once merging with
machines has become commonplace and acceptable (even expected), the
real tyranny will begin to set in. Soon after, there will be no
When discussing the coming technological
fascism, author and
Alan Watt stated:
It [technology/internet/etc.] has
many purposes but one of them was never to free the people, it
would be used as an incredible tool of data-collection and
using, like television and repetition of different topics, or
the same topics or phrases again, it would be used to condition
the public in their opinions, until, really, they’d be addicted
to it, they could never do without it.
That’s the intent,
because you will go cashless eventually and it will be used as a
form of social approval and disapproval, if they cut you off
from the net: you won’t be able to do your banking, get money to
pay your rent etc.
Bertrand Russell talked about this sort of
technique to be used in the future and it’s coming now. 'Cloud'
will come in and that will take over and be THE one for the
planet and everyone will rush into it thinking ‘my God I don’t
have to worry about spyware or viruses or upgrades, it’s all
done for me, out there somewhere in the big 'cloud.'
Cloud, eventually, will be censoring your emails and actually
popping up windows to tell you 'are you sure you want to use
this word, this politically incorrect word in this email?' Then
it might give you a little list of fines or punishments etc.
This is all planned folks, that’s how you do it.
The advancements in the quality of human
life as a result of this new technology have never been intended for
the average person.
The good that could be done by virtue of its
development is only meant as a tool to sell it to the population in
the beginning and to control them in the end. Indeed, the control
that can and will be exerted through its acceptance is the ultimate
