Are you ready to have a microchip implanted into your brain?  That might not sound very appealing to you at this point, but this is exactly what the big pharmaceutical companies and the big technology companies have planned for our future.  They are pumping millions of dollars into researching “cutting edge” technologies that will enable implantable microchips to greatly “enhance” our health and our lives.  Of course nobody is going to force you to have a microchip implanted into your brain when they are first introduced.  Initially, brain implants will be marketed as “revolutionary breakthroughs” that can cure chronic diseases and that can enable the disabled to live normal lives.  When the “benefits” of such technology are demonstrated to the general public, soon most people will want to become “super-abled”.  Just imagine the hype that will surround these implants when people discover that you can get rid of your extra weight in a matter of days or that you can download an entire college course into your memory in just a matter of hours.  The possibilities for this kind of technology are endless, and it is just a matter of time before having microchips implanted into your brain is considered to be quite common.  What was once science fiction is rapidly becoming reality, and it is going to change the world forever.


But aren’t there some very serious potential downsides to having microchips implanted into our brains?

Of course there are.

Unfortunately, this technology is not as far off as you might think, and most people are not even talking about what the negative consequences might be.

According to a recent article in the Financial Times, the pharmaceutical company of the future will include a “bioelectronics” business that “treats disease through electrical signalling in the brain and elsewhere.”

Diseases such as diabetes and epilepsy and conditions such as obesity and depression will be will be treated “through electronic implants into the brain rather than pills or injections.”

These implants will send electrical signals to cells and organs that are “malfunctioning”.  People will be totally “cured” without ever having to pop a pill or go under the knife.

It sounds too good to be true, right?

Well, the Financial Times says that British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline is working very hard to develop these kinds of technologies.  Moncef Slaoui, the head of research and development at GlaxoSmithKline, says that the “challenge is to integrate the work – in brain-computer interfaces, materials science, nanotechnology, micro-power generation – to provide therapeutic benefit.”

If a brain implant could cure a disease that you have been suffering from your whole life would you take it?

A lot of people are going to be faced with that kind of a decision in future years.

And this kind of technology is advancing very rapidly.  In fact, some researchers have already had success treating certain diseases by implanting microchips into the brains of rats.  The following is from a recent Mashable article….

Stroke and Parkinson’s Disease patients may benefit from a controversial experiment that implanted microchips into lab rats. Scientists say the tests produced effective results in brain damage research.

Rats showed motor function in formerly damaged gray matter after a neural microchip was implanted under the rat’s skull and electrodes were transferred to the rat’s brain. Without the microchip, rats with damaged brain tissue did not have motor function. Both strokes and Parkinson’s can cause permanent neurological damage to brain tissue, so this scientific research brings hope.

In addition, the U.S. government has been working on implantable microchips that would monitor the health of our soldiers and enhance their abilities in the field.

So this technology is definitely coming.

But it must be very complicated to get a microchip implanted into your brain, right?

Actually it is fairly simple.

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, the typical procedure is very quick and it often only requires just an overnight stay in the hospital….

Neural implants, also called brain implants, are medical devices designed to be placed under the skull, on the surface of the brain. Often as small as an aspirin, implants use thin metal electrodes to “listen” to brain activity and in some cases to stimulate activity in the brain. Attuned to the activity between neurons, a neural implant can essentially “listen” to your brain activity and then “talk” directly to your brain.

If that prospect makes you queasy, you may be surprised to learn that the installation of a neural implant is relatively simple and fast. Under anesthesia, an incision is made in the scalp, a hole is drilled in the skull, and the device is placed on the surface of the brain. Diagnostic communication with the device can take place wirelessly. When it is not an outpatient procedure, patients typically require only an overnight stay at the hospital.

But is it really safe to have a device implanted into your head that can “talk” directly to your brain?

Many large corporations are banking on the fact that in a world that is always hungry for new technology that most people will not be bothered by such things.

For example, Intel is working on sensors that will be implanted in the brain that will be able to directly control computers and cell phones.  The following is an excerpt from a Computer World UK article….

By the year 2020, you won’t need a keyboard and mouse to control your computer, say Intel researchers. Instead, users will open documents and surf the web using nothing more than their brain waves.

Scientists at Intel’s research lab in Pittsburgh are working to find ways to read and harness human brain waves so they can be used to operate computers, television sets and cell phones. The brain waves would be harnessed with Intel-developed sensors implanted in people’s brains.

The scientists say the plan is not a scene from a sci-fi movie, Big Brother won’t be planting chips in your brain against your will. Researchers expect that consumers will want the freedom they will gain by using the implant.

Once again, this is not something that will be forced on you against your will.

These big corporations are banking on the fact that a lot of people will want to get these brain implants.

Even now, some video game makers are developing headsets that allow users to play games using their brain waves rather than a joystick or a control pad.

Other companies want to make it possible to directly connect your brain to the Internet.

As I have written about previously, IBM is aggressively working to develop this kind of technology.  The following is from a recent IBM press release….

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 potential “benefits” of such technology are almost beyond imagination.  An article on the website of the Science Channel put it this way….

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.

How would the world change if you could download a lifetime of learning directly into your brain in a matter of weeks?

The possibilities are endless.

But so is the potential for abuse.

Implantable microchips that can “talk” directly to the brain would give a tyrannical government the ultimate form of control.

If you could download thoughts and feelings directly into the brains of your citizens, you could achieve total control and never have to worry that they would turn on you.

In fact, you could potentially program these chips to make your citizens feel good all the time.  You could have these chips produce a “natural high” that never ends.  That would make your citizens incredibly dependent on the chips and they would never want to give them up.

This kind of technology has the potential to be one of the greatest threats to liberty and freedom in the history of mankind.

At first these implantable microchips will be sold to us as one of the greatest “breakthroughs” ever, but in the end they could end up totally enslaving us.

So I will never be taking any kind of a brain implant, and I hope that you will not either.

  • This article reminds me of a movie I saw when I was a kid (which is probably before most of everyone else here was born). The main character had suffered a severe injury in a car accident and after he had recovered he began to assault his wife and children. He volunteered to have a chip planted in his brain to see if it could return him to the person he had been before the accident or, at least, cut down on his criminal behavior.

    Whenever this character began to have an evil or violent thought his brain would receive a small electrical pulse. The problem was that his brain liked the pulse. Since his brain was being essentially rewarded for having evil thoughts, it kept coming up with more instead of less and he began to kill people. He ended up lying in an open grave suffering in a fit of status epilepticus…

    …since his brain was hooked and would do nothing other than think evil thoughts just to get the electrical “fix.”

    My favorite line from this movie was when the lead doctor character was asked by a reporter at a press conference if that this surgery and brain implants was not a form a mind control. The doctor responded, “What do you call twelve years of mandatory education?”

  • Laura

    Future Mark of the Beast technology maybe?

    • Not maybe, Laura, it is part of the Mark Of The Beast system.
      Been in development plan since the 50s. Now with the technology
      they can do it.

    • lee

      I agree with that too, definitely a beast marking to come.

      Not sure if anyone else sees that as a mark of the beast, end times coming; but it’s got my radar up. Add to that, extreme weather, Israel standing again as a country and the mid east about to blow up; you got a whole lot of end times stuff going on.

      If it turns out i’m wrong on that, put me in the no thanks to implants too. I can spare the extra time to hunt and peck a keyboard vs. letting anyone that can hack the US defense department, access to what’s in my head. The people that agree to this voluntarily are complete suckers.

  • @ David Turner I won’t either take this death chip either. I’ve known
    about the microchip since i was 10. Read the bible and it was foretold.
    There is one problem? There already in some of the vaccines. Some people
    are already been chipped. These Psychopathic Eugenists want to track and
    kill anyone who does follow there sicking agenda. Putting these chips
    in you is like putting a gun to your head, in my opinion.

  • VegasBob

    It’s really too bad we can’t just turn the clock back about 60 years to a time before technology started allowing mankind to freely play God.

    This includes all of man’s God-playing activities, such as advanced medical life support techniques, abortion, organ transplants, implantable microchips, stock market manipulation using high frequency trading, TSA body scanners, etc. etc. etc.

    I think all of it is just plain wrong…

    • Randome-11

      Your deity is not really a deity if it had to use technology…

  • Tatiana Covington

    No surprise here. I knew about these before 1965.

  • Rodster

    Hmm the thought of a brain micro chip which turns Gary2 into a hardcore conservative would be be rather intriguing. :)

  • Dave Webb

    The mark of the beast was just that. It was a way to control trade. If you didn’t have the mark then you could not buy and sell things in the marketplace.
    Think about that. You can no longer go to a store and buy groceries without this mark. Or anything else, like buy gasoline for your car. Make payments on your house. I think you get the picture.
    The chip is like the Visa and Mastercard out there. If there is no money supply, how do you trade for what you need to live?
    The chip in the head could be part of that. I am more inclined to think the governments of the world are going to do away with currencies all together and go to a system of credit cards. In order to trade you have to have one of these chips in order to live.
    I have bad news. It is already here. They simply haven’t tightened the controls so there are no alternatives.

  • Gary2

    Conservatives have no fear–you have nothing to implant the chip in.

    • seanipie

      Dude…come on, is that really necessary?

    “If a brain implant could cure a disease that you have been suffering from your whole life would you take it?”

    Well, yes, of course I would!
    If I was suffering from Parkinson’s disease or the debilitating effects of a stroke or epilepsy, I would consider a brain implant if I thought that it would improve my quality of life.
    You need to remember that the alternative for these disorders is to be treated with drugs that are largely ineffective and have many side effects.
    As with anything else in modern medicine, it is all about making making informed choices and balancing risks and benefits.
    Once again we need to be reminded that technology is neither good nor evil. It is what we choose to do with that technology that matters.
    As for augmenting the capabilities of normal humans, this will happen, whether we want it to or not.
    Many people will choose to inhance their capabilities.
    It is easy to imagine a future where employers will preferentially hire people with augmented capabilities, because they will be more productive.
    So if you want to remain competitive in the workforce you may need to get one these implants just to remain employable.
    This, of course, is the potential dark side; but I fear that this is coming, whether we want it or not.

      then instead of throwing up your hands saying “theres nothing i can do, i must accept this”, try not accepting it and doing your best to do something to increase awareness of its potential negatives while lauding the obvious potential positives.

  • Chris

    You say no one will be forced but what if all the jobs that are available in the workplace that exists at that time can only be taken by people with the implant? You would then have to choose to get an implant or not get a job.

  • Kevin

    Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? The series Star Trek showed a lot of future technology that has became available in the present. The cell phone is the offspring of the communicator and the ear device Spock and Uhura used is the bluetooth.

    The above being said “The Borg” in the Next Generation series shows a group where individuals are incorporated into an all controlling collective with mechanical implants.

    I wonder where some of these techno knuckleheads get their inspiration from?

      Not going to happen. They would drawl a line in the sand on that one. I have no doubt that several states would leave the Union over that.

      It’s stuff like this that makes the reality that is happening not believable.

      • K

        Kevin, I think you underestimate how evil these folks are. There is a human equivalent of mad cow. What if they tampered with it. Made it a little more contagious, possibly airborne. As the general population loses control of their own bodies. Suddenly there is a chip, which cures this horrible disease. How many would refuse the chip now?

  • GA

    Skynet is closer than you think! No chips here. I think I will stay a knuckle dragger.

  • LM

    I wouldn’t let my dog take a medication made by GlaxoSmithKline. GSK is the source of Paxil, an evil drug that almost destroyed my life and has totally destroyed the lives of countless people. GSK lied and falsified data and they continue to lie about the dangers of Paxil. If they did it with Paxil, they would do the same with chip technology. The other pHARMa companies are no better. I wouldn’t take a chip or anything else from them. I’d rather live my life naturally and go when it’s my time.

  • I used to think this was for sure the mark of the beast; however, as of late I’m not entirely convinced. I definitely, obviously, think this technology is going to be used for control and evil as we approach the last days, albeit I’m not sure if it’s going to be the mark even though it has the potential to be. Either way, some scary stuff is happening all over the world. God is about to remove his hand and let the judgment of sin go forth throughout all lands. America is for sure next. The world is formulating into a true one-world society just like that have been planning for hundreds of years. Jesus come quickly!

  • DownWithLibs

    Wow, this sure raises a lot of ethical questions. Great if it can help someone with Parkinson’s, not so great if “someone” can control you…and make no mistake, if someone can have that chance, they will take it.

    You also have to take in consideration if we have an EMP. Would the test subject just slump to the floor like a dropped puppet?

    • Chloe

      Good point!!!

  • Gary2

    if this is the mark of the beast then Gog and Magog are gonna be pissed…

    In 1976, a man named Dannion Brinkley was dead for 20 mins afte being struck by lightning. He was shown events to occur in the future. Many have happened, but one that is still to come is the implementation of a compulsary micro chip for identification that would have a lethal virus in it to be slowly released and kill you the person.

  • Cheepnokoff

    Why hasn’t anyone around these parts had a stab yet at the “Tavistock Institute” and one of its many “subsidiaries”, the “Rand Research and Development Corp.”?

  • Cheepnokoff

    Hello Michael,

    Since this article is ostensibly about mind control, may I coerce you into researching “Tavistock” & “Rand” & doing a separate piece about the same?

    I would happily do it (actually, have already researched) but, this is your blog, not mine. :)

    Kindest regards!

  • Sue

    In 1976, a man called Dannion Brinkley, was dead for 20mins after being struck by lightning. He was shown the future and most things have happened,except the mandatory implantation of a micro chip which contained a lethal virus.

  • For more on transhumanism and the “brain chip” that the US government states that it wants to implant people with, see my following article, particularly Sec. 8.2.2: “The Mark of the Beast”. This article details physicist and mathematician Prof. Frank J. Tipler’s Omega Point cosmology, which is a proof of God’s existence according to the known laws of physics (i.e., the Second Law of Thermodynamics, General Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics), and the Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum gravity/Standard Model Theory of Everything (TOE).

    This website is amazing it’s every paranoid and unsubstantiated conspiracy from the USA rolled into one website from vaccines causing Autism, China slowly purchasing the US (its Obama’s fault), to how survive and EMP attack. incredible how many people but all this rubbish you americans need to pull your head out of your ass and have a look around your global joke, the rest of the world sees you as the enept fat petualnt child sitting in the corner thumping his big stick on the gound.

  • When the mechanical loom was first invented, it promised the potential of producing huge amounts of cloth in the amount of time it used to take to make a single bolt. It delivered on that promise. The result was a full scale revolution in part of early industrial England when cloth artisans got all butt-bent because it was digging into their exclusivity as producers of linen products.
    Specifically, it inspired one alleged individual to go postal and destroy a bunch of the earlier prototypes used to loom cloth mechanically. Although the reality surrounding Ned Ludd is somewhat clouded by abundant over burdoning of mysticism that begins to rival what the Christians did with the Jesus stories, what is known is that Mr. Ludd was made a symbol of the corresponding revolutionary (terroristic) acts taken on by the protesting cloth artisans who were rendered into obscurity by the new advances in technology. They even painted Mr. Ludd as a contemporary version of Robin Hood – made all the more easy to do since many of the initial protests occurred in the area of Nottingham.
    History remembers both Ludd and the protests as a result of his name being attached to the protests and the protestors via the coined phrase ‘Luddite’ or “Ludditism” as being a word meaning ‘one who resists technology’.
    Of course, any new technology has just as much potential for misuse as it does for good. It’s all in how you choose to utilize it. But after reading your blog entry here and examining the kinds of examples you bring forth and using that examination to discern the intention of writing such a piece, I am left with only one thought:
    Welcome to the long rank of the Luddites….

  • Ewen Cameron

    Thought about this quite a bit recently, obviously it’s not happening quite yet, but next 20 years or so then this will be a REALITY!

    iTunes for the mind downloaded via the cloud direct to your brain, you could purchase the Surgery pack for £20,000 or master chef pack for only £10,000, or what about the financial/banking pack. We would soon have a 2 tier system of people who could afford the surgery and download packs and those that would be totally against it for religious/moral reasons or could just not afford it.

    Worries about thought control, brain damage, stealing ideas and memories would just scratch the surface as the human race transcends into a non-organic species.

    No doubt there will be movies coming out over the next decade highlighting the fears and benefits of having this technology in your mind, I need to go on a writing course, there is so much meaty material available in this subject and its coming soon to a brain near you!

    20% of benefits and 80% of threats, I would never let to implant that peace of junk in to my brain.

    They will do it anyways, if I could place a bet on this topic…..the stupidity and ignorance of humanity as a whole…..always wins..they are the house. You want a house. Shame on all of you.
