As technology continues to advance at an exponential rate, will we someday find ourselves living in a “scientific dictatorship” where virtually everything that we do, say and think is monitored and controlled by technology?  To many of you that may sound like a wild assertion, but just keep reading.  Our world is changing faster than ever before, and scientists have some absolutely wild things planned for our future.  As you read this, they are feverishly developing edible microchips, cutting edge biometric identity systems, and mind reading computers.  Many futurists envision a world where someday nearly all humans are embedded with microchips and have thousands of tiny nanobots living inside of them.  The idea is that we can “take control of our own evolution” and use technology to “improve” humanity.  But very few of those futurists address the potential downsides.  The truth is that all of this technology could one day be used by a totalitarian government to establish a dystopian nightmare where nobody has any liberties and freedoms whatsoever.


The world of tomorrow is not going to be anything like the world of today, and most people have no idea how dramatically the world is changing.

For instance, many people have never even heard of “edible microchips”.

Unfortunately, they are not some wild idea that some wacky scientists are hoping to develop in the future.

They are already here, and they are about to be marketed to the public in the UK.

The idea is that these edible microchips will help doctors monitor your health conditions and the medicines that you are taking.  The following comes from a recent article in the Daily Mail….

The sensor, which contains no battery, antenna or radio, creates a unique digital signature that is picked up and recorded by a patch attached to the patient’s shoulder.

The patch, which also monitors bodily functions such as heart rate and temperature, sends this encrypted information to blue-tooth enabled smartphones or computers owned by the patient and their doctors and carers.

In this way, both patients and their doctors can work out exactly which pills have been taken. Medics can also interpret whether the patient is sleeping well, or taking enough exercise using the information transmitted from the patch.

But could such edible microchips be used for more nefarious purposes in the future?

Of course.

And scientists are developing many other new ways for you to be tracked by technology as well.

For example, do you remember in the movie “Minority Report” how Tom Cruise had to cover his eyes because he was being tracked by them wherever he went?

Well, it won’t be too long before that becomes a reality in our world.

IBM is aggressively developing new biometric identity systems that could significantly change the way that we live our lives.  The following is from a recent IBM press release….

You will no longer need to create, track or remember multiple passwords for various log-ins. Imagine you will be able to walk up to an ATM machine to securely withdraw money by simply speaking your name or looking into a tiny sensor that can recognize the unique patterns in the retina of your eye. Or by doing the same, you can check your account balance on your mobile phone or tablet.

Each person has a unique biological identity and behind all that is data. Biometric data – facial definitions, retinal scans and voice files – will be composited through software to build your DNA unique online password.

Referred to as multi-factor biometrics, smarter systems will be able to use this information in real-time to make sure whenever someone is attempting to access your information, it matches your unique biometric profile and the attempt is authorized.

When biometric identity systems become widespread enough, authorities will pretty much know where you are and what you are doing at all times.

But even more frightening is something else that IBM is developing right now.  IBM scientists are actually working really hard to develop mind reading computers.  The idea is that someday we will all be able to control various electronic devices simply by using our thoughts….

IBM scientists are among those researching how to link your brain to your devices, such as a computer or a smartphone. If you just need to think about calling someone, it happens. Or you can control the cursor on a computer screen just by thinking about where you want to move it.

Scientists in the field of bioinformatics have designed headsets with advanced sensors to read electrical brain activity that can recognize facial expressions, excitement and concentration levels, and thoughts of a person without them physically taking any actions.

The following promotional video from IBM describes some of these emerging technologies in more detail….

But IBM is not the only one working on mind reading technology.

Several video game makers have been attempting to develop games that you control not with a joystick or a gamepad but rather with your brain waves.

This all sound fascinating, but could such technology someday be adapted for other purposes?

Instead of us controlling the electronic devices that we connect our brains to, could they instead be used to control us someday?

Being more “connected” is not necessarily a good thing.

People have been looking for ways to stay more “connected” to the Internet for a long time, and many futurists are now suggesting that we should find a way to directly connect our brains to the Internet.  An article on the website of the Science Channel put it this way….

What if it were possible to connect your brain to the Internet, either wirelessly or through a cable, download digital information at high speed, and then translate it automatically into a chemical form that could be stored by your brain cells as memory?

The same article explained what some of the benefits from such a connection might be….

If you could pump data directly into your gray matter at, say, 50 mbps — the top speed offered by one major U.S. internet service provider — you’d be able to read a 500-page book in just under two-tenths of a second.

But wouldn’t this be potentially dangerous?

If we found a way to connect our brains to the Internet 100% of the time, couldn’t someone potentially “download” damaging programs or “viruses” directly into our heads?

That is something to think about.

A British researcher named Mark Gasson infected an RFID chip in his hand with a computer virus and found that the virus-infected chip implanted in his hand was able to contaminate external systems.

So wouldn’t the danger be far greater if we connected our brains directly to the Internet?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t plan on ever connecting my brain directly to the Internet and I don’t plan on ever letting anyone put an RFID chip inside of me either.

Unfortunately, the use of implantable RFID chips in humans and animals is rapidly spreading.  A lot of employers now require that their employees take them for identification purposes.  Some cities in the U.S. are actually making it mandatory to put microchips into your pets.

Increasingly, RFID implants are being injected into thousands of elderly Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease who are at risk of wandering off and getting lost.  In addition, RFID chips are being implanted into many people who are chronically ill so that doctors can access their medical information quickly in an emergency.

And many companies are working hard to make it even easier to implant RFID chips into humans and animals.

In fact, one company called Somark has developed a stunning breakthrough in chipless RFID ink.  Their “RFID tattoos” are applied using a geometric array of micro-needles and a reusable applicator.

Somark says that it is incredibly easy to apply one of these RFID tattoos.  They say that it only takes about 5 to 10 seconds to tattoo an animal or a human.  Once the tattoo has been applied, an RFID reader can read it from up to four feet away.

Frightening stuff.

But some say that there might be an even easier way than that to keep track of everybody in the future.

IBM is actually working on a “bar code reader” that can read your DNA.  The following is from a Fox News article about this project….

The DNA Transistor is a project from IBM Research that aims to advance personalized medicine, by making it simpler (and much cheaper) to read an individual’s unique DNA sequence — the special combination of proteins that makes you unlike anyone else.

The technology isn’t finished yet, but its potential is tantalizin enough that IBM wanted to share it with the world. And the company claims researchers are making progress.

Essentially a bar code reader for genes, the DNA Transistor is part technique and part device. It consists of a 3-nanometer wide hole, known as a nanopore, in a silicon microchip. A sensor in the pore can read DNA and determine its unique makeup.

Our world is changing at a mind blowing pace right now.

The decisions that are made now are going to have a dramatic affect on how the future plays out.

That is why so many of us are speaking out about how the government is watching us and about how our liberties and our freedoms are being taken away.

If we don’t stand up for freedom and liberty right now, our children may one day wake up in a world where they are so controlled by technology that they are unable to do so.

Right now we are not too far away from the kind of world that authors such as George Orwell once warned about.  This article will conclude with a quote from his famous work 1984….

“It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself–anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face…; was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime…”

  • Cinderella Man

    This is some scary, sick ******!!! So they want us to be freakin’ cyborgs? Im always wary when Big Sis comes up with something new and declares that is safe, and its for our own good because they care about us so much. Like that microchip so the doctors can diagnose our problems? In your last article I thought the doctors could care less about us. Something stinks here. Another Orwell quote “In a time of universal deceipt telling the truth had become a revolutionary act.”

  • Cinderella Man

    Remember the Nazis tattooed their subjects/victims too… Lets see what else is similar, hmm… railroad cars with shackles, taking away free speech and citizenship if declared an “enemy”, death I mean FEMA camps, mesemerizing speeches from leaders, eugenics, What am I missing? Oh yeah crematoriums!

    Certainly the advances made so far are overhyped (I studied biomedical engineering, with a strong interest in Brain-Computer Interfaces). While a good EEG can capture brainwaves with enough fidelity to recognize changes in level of mental concentration, they can hardly read your thoughts. Getting the kind of signal necessary to accurately identify “thoughts”, whether as intention of a physical movement, image of visual data, or perhaps eventually higher-level conceptual thinking, currently requires a directly-implanted prosthesis – that is, electrodes in the brain. Those are currently expensive, somewhat dangerous (they require cutting or drilling through the skull), and don’t last more than a year or two.

    I do think that neural implants will become commonplace, however, once the technological hurdles are overcome. In many years, we may have implants that allow us to use neural signals to control devices. It is much more difficult, however, to reverse that control flow effectively. But the comment about the potential of viruses or other attacks (electromagnetic pulse weapons, for instance) to disrupt the function of these devices is worrying. If we rely on them too heavily without taking appropriate security measures, it may be at our peril.

    A question – could the fears you express be allayed by changing the stakeholders? The phrase, “If you’re not the customer, you’re the product” comes to mind. If these technologies could be truly useful for individuals in their daily lives, and not just as surveillance tools, how do we ensure that the technologies are integrated into products that are designed with the end user’s interests in mind? There’s no reason that these devices can’t be built with privacy and security as a #1 concern, unless the government specifically prohibits it. But such interest alignment can only occur if the public is willing to commit resources.

    Good article Michael.

    I was at the DMV to get my license re-instated, and they had 3 TV monitors, and one of the displays was “See Something Suspicious, Say Something” from homeland-security…

    I have to admit, this was my 1st time actually seeing one in public, and it really does make you nervous…

    As for the RFID chips… If people are really that gullible to let them put one of those in them, they get what they asked for…

    Stay Strong and Keep Up the Good Work!

    • Michael


      Yes, that “See Something, Say Something” campaign is more than a little bit creepy. I definitely agree with you there.

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17

    “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath.” Revelation 14:9,10

    We are definitely living in troubled times my friends, may each and every one of you enjoy and cherish each day, as we are literally on the cusp of dramatic change……

      Your statement is so third grade. I see you keep things very simple, i.e. “tax the rich hard”.

      • Gary2

        If I comment at a higher level all the right wingers will not be able to comprehend it.

  • Dan Upton

    Forget George Orwell. Look at the prophecy in the Revelation of Jesus Christ written by the apostle John in the book of Revelation nearly 2000 years ago: “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17. This requirement is coming soon. Technology is now up to date with that prophecy. It won’t be long now.

    Edible microchips? Cool!
    Do they taste like chicken?

  • Emily

    As a Jew,reading this article made me cry… Histroy my friends is never old, they try for the same results with different tactics and procedures. I WILL DIE BEFORE THEY SUCCEED

  • Loveless One

    Hey everyone,

    Although I don’t normally reference the bible or am a big believer in, I find this RFID stuff to be very reminiscent of the mark of the beast. What’s even more frightening, is that the media will laud it as the “newest thing to have” and the sheep will be clamoring in droves for it.

    Dark times ahead my friends…

  • A.S.

    All of this is pretty cool, but ALL technology is NOT FULLY SECURE. There is ample room for data-crashes and hacking. It is time to go back to low-tech:
    1. work for cash, pay with cash
    2. drive an old, non-computerized car
    3. stay away from any teckie toys if possible
    4. when you go on vacation, only places accessible by car only
    5. eat your own home-grown food
    6. learn to write a letter by hand
    7. go to social functions to discuss politics, economics, math, science, history, language, anything other than brain-dead social-media.
    8. there is more, but most people will not be able to keep these 7 for a single day! (I challenge anyone out there to do this).

    • Loveless One

      Nice list A.S., but in the age of hyper-reality most “normies” can’t be bothered with anything that isn’t digital and isn’t HIP.

      I’m trying to sell my modern car and find a classic car I can learn to take car of, or start walking everywhere.

      My ideal job would be working labor or general help every day for cash, having nights and weekends free for fun and social stuff.

      Number 7 on your list I fear is pretty much impossible here in the states. Unless your rubbing shoulders at some high-class party which us drones aren’t welcome at, the best you could do is discuss art history with some hipsters. Yuck.

    There are already companies that claim to be able to use MRI brain scans as sophisticated lie detectors: http://noliemri.com and http://www.cephoscorp.com/
    “No Lie MRI, Inc. provides unbiased methods for the detection of deception and other information stored in the brain.
    The technology used by No Lie MRI represents the first and only direct measure of truth verification and lie detection in human history!”
    60 Minutes did a piece on this:http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5119805n

  • highspeedloafer

    These are really interesting times. I just saw a segment on nightline where a well known physican said that in 10 years, all they will need to do is scan a patient and can diagnose even the rarest diseases in seconds.

    Its like the internet, it does some tremendous goods and it does some horrible stuff too. For centuries men have tried to use things for evil as God uses the same things for good.

  • p here in space
    Im looking down on you
    My lasers trace
    Everything you do

    You think youve private lives
    Think nothing of the kind
    There is no true escape
    Im watching all the time

    Im made of metal
    My circuits gleam
    I am perpetual
    I keep the country clean

    Im elected electric spy
    Im protected electric eye

    Always in focus
    You cant feel my stare
    I zoom into you
    You dont know Im there

    I take a pride in probing all your secret moves
    My tearless retina takes pictures that can prove

    Im made of metal
    My circuits gleam
    I am perpetual
    I keep the country clean

    Im elected electric spy
    Im protected electric eye

    Electric eye, in the sky
    Feel my stare, always there
    Theres nothing you can do about it
    Develop and expose
    I feed upon your every thought
    And so my power grows

    Im made of metal
    My circuits gleam
    I am perpetual
    I keep the country clean

    Im elected electric spy
    Im protected electric eye

    Not only do they have the ability to read your mind but also produce voices in your head. For two years now I have been tortured 24/7. This happened just after my youngest daughter turned 18 and got into some sort of prostitution bussiness and I found out about it. Believe it’s ran out of Ney York. They not only orginize the prostitution but also drug traficing and gun traficing. Goggle electronic tourture and mind control. They also use techniques they have termed “gas lighting”. Our world will all be controled by these evel people unless we take drastic steps to stop them

  • Annelies

    Hi richard,
    I have the same thing. I don’t understand it, and i don’t know much about technology.
    But the can read your mind every step, and i also heare voices. It is a real torture. It is terrorisme.

    There are people here, who are trying to help me, but the aren’t allout to make directly contect whit me.

    It is a real hell, the feed themself on your despair. I have trouble whit it, every day.

    And when i’m trying to do something about it, i’m running into walls.

    They really can almost read every thought. The police and other people in my neighborhood knows, but the can’t make directly contact with me. I think there is a tread above there head.

    And do so, stay strong, hang on!! There are times i wanne die, but it is true what the people here are saying. We have to put out warnings, and help eachother true this.

    I’m a pretty sceptic person, my mother was a preacher. Neither i believed in ghost ore technology that can read your mind.
    Now i believe in both of those things.
    I was just a student, who was almost finisht with school. Now my hole live is upside down!

    Not knowing what to do, who is gonna believe you!
    They really can read your mind and put it on the internet.

  • All these are described in detail in the bible and in the book of revelation, almost 2000 years ago. Hard to believe it but so true.
