VeriChip And VeriPay One And The Same, Related Technologies Digital Angel And GPS - Global Positioning Satellite System, DARPA, Kevin Warwick, Human Enhancement And Project Cyborg, Multiple Micro Electrode Array And Brain Machine Interfaces, Magic Or Advanced Technology?, Deciphering Nerve Impulses, Thought Communication Over Internet, Transfer Of Emotions, How Modems Work, Computer Binary Code, Record Nerve Impulses I Want To Be A Cyborg, Robocop, The Terminal Man, Terminator Crowd Control Through Pain, Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange", Techno-Happy - "Soma" And Aldus Huxley's "Brave New World" Future World Dominated By Robots, Babylon And Souls Of Men

Allow me to also mention, that from everything I've read, it seems to me that VeriChip and VeriPay are basically one and the same microchip. The only difference appears to be in the actual application of the device; that is, in how it is used. In other words, in one case, the encoded ID number is used to access one's medical records; while in the other, a similar code allows one to perform various banking transactions. In short, this chip appears to be a multi-purpose device, and its uses are probably endless, and Applied Digital Solutions is sure to financially exploit this device as much as they possibly can.

While I have mentioned VeriChip and VeriPay in this series, please note that there are less intrusive ID products which basically perform the same functions as these ADS implants. These other products are likewise based upon Radio Frequency Identification technology -- RFID -- and include Smart Cards and related bank cards, earrings, pens, key chains, wrist watches, etc. However, being as these other products provide a less secure environment, I wouldn't be surprised if they are eventually phased out, and implantable subdermal chips become the primary way in which people choose to secure their personal data.

While I say "people", I am not referring to Christians, as I hope that God's children are smart enough to realize that we must firmly reject this satanic "666" system with all of our strength. As I point out in my article "666: Patience Of The Saints", one of these days, we're all going to be forced to draw the line regarding exactly how far we are willing to go with the children of the world, before we say "This far, and no further". The Bible makes it very clear that accepting the Mark of the Beast will result in one's damnation, as we see here:

"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."
Revelation 14:9-11, KJV

As I mentioned in part one, Applied Digital Solutions' third product is a location device dubbed "Digital Angel". As I point out in the article "666: Patience Of The Saints", in their December 1999 press release, Applied Digital Solutions announced that they had bought out Digital Angel Corp., and had acquired the patent rights to their flagship product. In fact, it would seem that VeriChip and VeriPay are different applications of the very same product. Similar to VeriChip and VeriPay, Digital Angel has been promoted as a subdermal implantable chip; however, it appears that since that time, it has found both internal and external implementations. In other words, in addition to being implantable in a person's body, Digital Angel technology can also be integrated into other electronic components. Thus, this kind of technology can be built into watches, into devices hung on one's waist, into hand-held devices, into navigational devices which are found in cars, boats, aircraft and other vehicles, etc.

Unlike VeriChip and VeriPay, Digital Angel's usefulness is quite dependent upon another important technology which was specifically designed for, and which is in fact operated by the American military establishment. I am referring to the GPS system. GPS, or the "Global Positioning System", is a satellite-based navigation system which is both funded by, and controlled by, the US Department of Defense. While it was designed for military use, there are now thousands, and maybe even millions, of civilian users all around the world. The GPS system is comprised of both Earth-based, as well as space-based components. The space-based portion consists of a "constellation" of about twenty-four satellites, which, in the course of their precisely-defined orbits, cover every single part of the globe, everyday.

The entire GPS system is rather complex, so I am just going to offer a simple explanation here, so that you can see how Digital Angel uses this technology. If you would like a more thorough explanation, you will find plenty of information on the Internet; but I think the following explanation will be sufficient for our purposes here.

In order to take advantage of the GPS system, a person must possess a GPS receiver. In this case, this is precisely what the Digital Angel device is. Actually, it is a transceiver, or a transponder, because it acts as both a transmitter and a receiver, all in the same unit. A transceiver/transponder is a device which automatically transmits a signal whenever an anticipated incoming signal is received. I am reminded of how one downloads a file from a server. The host server which contains the file will transmit so many bytes of data, and then it will wait for the receiving computer, that is, you, the client, to send back a verification that the data packets has been successfully received without errors. This is called the "checksum". If the host server doesn't receive that verification, it will assume that data corruption, or perhaps some other problem, has occurred, and the download may be aborted. So a transponder like Digital Angel works in a similar way. It's activated by an incoming signal; and this holds true for VeriChip and VeriPay as well.

In this case, Digital Angel receives radio signals from four different orbiting satellites, which it must then process in order to compute the position and the velocity of the host, as well as the time. If a human being happens to be the host, meaning that they have a Digital Angel microchip embedded in their body, then if they become lost, or are kidnapped, for example, a signal can be sent out which will activate their chip. Digital Angel will then transmit a radio signal which will reveal the person's location. But what if a person does not want other to know where they are located? Too bad! Once a person is embedded with the chip, they are no longer in control; the master controllers are! They will be able to activate the Digital Angel microchip at will! I hope that you are in good standing with Big Brother Beast!

One thing I discovered as I was conducting some research for this series, which I find a bit disturbing, is the fact that being as the GPS system was really designed for military use, civilian usage of the system has purposely been crippled to some degree. In other words, the accuracy of the readings is purposely distorted, so that if a signal is sent to a host, the resulting coordinates which are sent back by the embedded microchip, will be off by perhaps a few hundred feet. I also read that the accuracy of the receiving device, such as ADS' Digital Angel in this case, may also be pre-determined by the manufacturer of the device. This leads me to suspect that if one is willing to pay the money, he may be able to purchase a more accurate GPS receiver; but this is only speculation on my part.

While you may have already been aware of the VeriChip device, what you may not know, is that while everyone's attention has been diverted by this obviously demonic device, the American agency DARPA, has been engaged in the development of another technology called BMI and MMEA. DARPA is an acronym for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which happens to be the central research and development organization for the US Department of Defense. At the time of this writing, this secretive agency is headed by Admiral John Poindexter.

Similar to VeriChip, MMEA is also an implantable microchip; however, it is considerably more advanced than the VeriChip. MMEA was created by British inventor Kevin Warwick. Warwick is the Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading in England. As his title implies, Mr. Warwick is involved in research which deals with artificial intelligence -- or AI -- robotics and cybernetics; that is, the field which seeks to close the gap between the human-machine interface.

In fact, Professor Warwick has written a book entitled "In The Mind Of The Machines", in which he warns of a future in which machines are more intelligent than human beings. It is for this very reason that Warwick has embarked on a campaign to enhance human performance through the vehicle of microchip implants, and he is quite serious about it. Warwick's vision is to contribute towards the creation of a future society in which "super humans" will be able to naturally interface with a computer network. In other words, computer brains and human brains will become one. When asked if he felt if cyborgs were going to be the next step in human evolution, Warwick gave the following unnerving response:

----- Begin Quote -----

Genetic changes offer short term, slight modifications. However the step to Cyborgs offers humans a natural, technological upgrade in the technological world we have instigated. Yes I feel it will be the next evolutionary step. Indeed we will need to do it if we are to compete with intelligent machines.

----- End Quote -----

As I first mentioned in the article "666: Patience Of The Saints", on August 24, 1998, Professor Warwick shocked the international scientific community when he became the very first human recipient of a microchip surgically implanted in his upper left arm. According to information located on his website, the implanted microchip allowed Warwick to "operate doors, lights, heaters and other computers without lifting a finger", at the Department of Cybernetics at the University of Reading. The way that the professor was able to do this was very simple. In an article published by "Wired" magazine in February of 2000, Warwick explains the process with the following:

----- Begin Quote -----

In August 1998, a silicon chip was implanted in my arm, allowing a computer to monitor me as I moved through the halls and offices of the Department of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, just west of London, where I've been a professor since 1988. My implant communicated via radio waves with a network of antennas throughout the department that in turn transmitted the signals to a computer programmed to respond to my actions. At the main entrance, a voice box operated by the computer said "Hello" when I entered; the computer detected my progress through the building, opening the door to my lab for me as I approached it and switching on the lights. For the nine days the implant was in place, I performed seemingly magical acts simply by walking in a particular direction.

----- End Quote -----

Notice how the professor used the phrase "seemingly magical acts". As I said in part one, due to their not being able to understand scientific technology of the far future, John, as well as other Prophets of old, would indeed view such things as "acts of magic", or more appropriately, as things which must surely be the result of great spiritual power; and that is exactly what they wrote. So again I ask: Are some of the events described in the Book of Revelation easily explained by our modern technology, or future technology yet to come? What do you think?

Professor Warwick has been designing "intelligent buildings" for over twenty years; and thus, each time that he would walk through a doorway in the Cybernetics Department at Reading, a radio signal would activate the transponder which was located in the less-than-one-inch capsule which was implanted in his arm. The transponder would then signal back the professor's personal ID code. A positive identification would result in the antennas communicating with the main computer, which in turn would then initiate the automation sequences in whatever room Warwick happened to be in at the facility. This phase of the professor's experiment was called "Project Cyborg 1.0".

For different reasons, Warwick and his team were being rather secretive regarding the identity of the source which provided the microchip implant for the Cyborg 1.0 experiment. All they would say was that it was a known commercial product, which used commonly-known technology. However, it seems that a big hint was purposely posted on Professor Warwick's website. On one certain page where a list of news articles is displayed, there was a link to an article from The Miami Herald, which discusses the Jacobs family, whom I mentioned earlier. I was a bit mystified at first, as these articles were supposed to be interviews in which Warwick was involved. However, right near the bottom of the article, I discovered the Professor's bit of humorous trickery. The article states in part:

----- Begin Quote -----

Only two adults have been implanted with the microchip, one in Europe, and a doctor working for Applied Digital Solutions, the Palm Beach company that makes the microchip, called a VeriChip.

----- End Quote -----

So as it turns out, Professor Warwick was in fact the first person to be implanted with the VeriChip. Not only that, if one compares a photo from the professor's site, with images of VeriChip from Applied Digital Solutions, they look very much like the same implant.

As I mentioned in part one, VeriChip is a simple device which consists of a microchip, capacitor and an antenna coil, which are enclosed in a glass capsule. Having achieved success with Project Cyborg 1.0, Professor Warwick and his team were ready to move on to bigger things. Thus, since March 14, 2002, the professor has been conducting additional experiments with his wife, Irena. During this phase of the experiment, which they have dubbed "Project Cyborg 2.0", a more advanced microchip with one hundred electrodes was inserted into Warwick's arm just below the elbow joint. This more complex microchip has enabled Warwick to link his nervous system, via radio waves, directly to a computer. His website reports that among other things, the daring professor was able to control an electric wheelchair, as well as a cybernetic hand. On his site, there is an image of a cybernetic hand delicately holding an egg between its fingers.

This reminds me of other experiments where monkeys, lab rats and people, have been trained to move various objects, such as a cursor across a computer monitor, or a mechanical arm, or a lever, by means of electrodes implanted in their brains.

But, returning to Professor Warwick's microchip, MMEA stands for Multiple Micro Electrode Array. From looking at several images of the device, I was given the impression that it may be an enhanced version of VeriChip; meaning that it not only has more than one circuit board inside of the glass capsule, -- it has three -- but it also has the addition of the "collar" which contains the one hundred electrodes which made contact with Warwick's medial nerve in his upper left arm. In the very same "Wired" article that I mentioned earlier, Warwick describes the MMEA capsule, and its placement, in this way:

----- Begin Quotes -----

The next device will be connected to the nerve fibers in my left arm, positioned about halfway between my elbow and shoulder . . . Most of the nerves in this part of the body are connected to the hand, and send and receive the electronic impulses that control dexterity, feeling, even emotions. A lot of these signals are traveling here at any given time: This nerve center carries more information than any other part of the anatomy, aside from the spine and the head (in the optic and auditory nerves), and so is large and quite strong. Moreover, very few of the nerves branch off to muscles and other parts of the upper arm - it's like a freeway with only a few on- and off-ramps, providing a cleaner pathway to the nervous system.

This implant . . . will be encased in a glass tube . . . One end of the glass tube contains the power supply - a copper coil energized by radio waves to produce an electric current. In the other end, three mini printed circuit boards will transmit and receive signals. The implant will connect to my body through a band that wraps around the nerve fibers - it looks like a little vicar's collar - and is linked by a very thin wire to the glass capsule.

----- End Quotes -----

As Warwick explains above, the MMEA microchip, is actually a bidirectional device; meaning that it can both receive and transmit radio signals to and from the human body -- similar to the three Applied Digital Solutions products. The chip is controlled by a software package referred to as BMI. BMI is an acronym for "Brain Machine Interfaces". As I noted a moment ago, this hardware -- MMEA -- and software -- BMI -- is being used by the professor to intercept nerve impulses from his brain. One of his goals is to download these impulses to a computer, where they can be decoded, so that a program can be written, which will allow the user of BMI to re-transmit signals back to a person who has the MMEA microchip implant; and assist them if they suffer from certain maladies such as paralysis.

But Professor Warwick is much more the visionary than that. He has also said that one of his goals is to attempt thought communication at some time in the future, because he insists that human speech is a rather outdated, insufficient mode of communication. Warwick believes that it may be possible for people to communicate by thought alone, across the Internet.

Professor Warwick also wishes to experiment with "exchanging emotional signals", as he states on his website. He believes that it may be possible to use the MMEA chip to transmit his feelings to the computer as radio signals, and then beam the same signals back to his wife, where they will be recreated as feelings again. He is particularly interested in pain, and believes that MMEA technology may someday develop to a point where it can be used as a tranquilizer to reduce pain, or to even induce pleasure.

Is it possible that MMEA technology could some day be used to control what people actually think, as well as what they are feeling emotionally or physically? It certainly seems that this is what Professor Warwick believes, and I do find this very unsettling. How about you?

What I just described to you is similar to how a modem works. As some of you know, the word "modem" is simply an acronym for "Modulator/Demodulator". This means that a computer will read data stored on a hard drive, or on another device, and then send that data as digital impulses, either by way of a cable, or via a wireless network connection, to the modem. Upon receiving the digital signals, the modem converts them into analog signals, which can be sent through the telephone network, to the modem which is waiting on the other end. In turn, the second modem converts the analog signals back to digital signals which the receiving computer understands. In this way, two computers are able to "talk" back and forth to each other via the telephone system. Now you know what is actually happening when your modem starts making all of that clatter; unless, of course, you have its volume disabled.

So what Professor Warwick has accomplished over the past two years is basically the same thing. His MMEA microchip has a set of tiny electrodes which intercept nerve impulses which are traveling through his medial nerve. Upon intercepting these impulses in his arm, the electrodes pass the impulses by way of a tiny wire, to the circuit boards located in one end of the glass capsule. The circuit boards then transmit the impulses to the computer via radio signals. Through performing various physical actions over a period of time, he and his colleagues have been able to determine what some of those impulses mean, and how they affect the human body. This is more or less like trying to translate some unknown language from scratch. By trial and error, they have been able to slowly convert body language, that is to say, nerve impulses, into computer language, and actually write a sort of code you might say.

If you know anything about how computers operate, this isn't really that surprising. After all, computer code, or binary code, if you prefer, is really simplistic in nature. Data is really just a determined arrangement of bits, which possess either a positive charge, meaning a value of one, or else a negative charge, meaning a value of zero. Eight bits form a byte, which, depending on the arrangement of zeros and ones, represents a particular character which you can type on your keyboard. So just as your computer reads a continuous flow of digital signals consisting of a combination of zeros and ones, our brain is likewise sending out a continuous flow of nerve impulses to the various parts of our bodies. Depending on the nature of those impulses, our bodies react to them in a certain way. Warwick is saying that just as data -- those zeros and ones -- can be recorded to a hard drive, our nerve impulses can likewise be transmitted to a computer, stored there, be deciphered, and even be re-transmitted to someone else, where they will be re-created as feelings, reactions, or whatever. Now, is that spooky or what?

This is not just some tale from a science fiction novel; and Warwick obviously knows what he's talking about; because they are making progress with this technology. Professor Warwick's website states that by stimulating certain electrodes, they have been able to produce artificial sensations in his arm. At this current time, they are conducting certain experiments whereby when he touches his arm, the generated nerve impulses are intercepted by the electrodes on the MMEA microchip, and then transmitted to the computer via radio signals, which in turn relays the same impulses to a less complex MMEA implant which is embedded in his wife's arm. The end result, is that when the professor touches his arm, she feels the very same sensation, as if she had touched her own arm, even though in reality, she has really done no such thing.

While this type of experimentation could quite possibly lead to some amazing developments for individuals who suffer from such things as paralysis, or who may have lost a limb, quite frankly I find the entire project rather eerie. Even reading all of the material which is found on Warwick's website, and looking at the various images there, made me feel unsettled. This man has a crazy obsession with wanting to be a cyborg, and he makes absolutely no attempt to hide this fact. Quite to the contrary, he is very much in-your-face about it. In a commentary written in late January of 2000 for the British newspaper "Guardian Unlimited", Professor Warwick stated in part:

----- Begin Quote -----

"The future is out there; I am eager to see what it holds. I want to do something with my life: I want to be a cyborg".

----- End Quote -----

One month later, in an interview with "Wired" magazine in February of 2000 where he discusses his Cyborg 1.0 Project, Professor Warwick also made the following very disturbing statement:

----- Begin Quote -----

"I was born human, but it was an accident of fate".

----- End Quote -----

In another interview which is posted on his website, Warwick also states:

----- Begin Quote -----

Humanity can change itself, but hopefully it will be an individual choice. Those who want to stay human can, and those who want to evolve into something much more powerful with greater capabilities, can. There is no way I want to stay a mere human.

----- End Quote -----

So as I noted before, Warwick firmly believes that evolving into a race of "super human" cyborgs is our destiny. I can truly understand his desire to want to help people who may suffer from a variety of physical limitations, but I find his degree of fanaticism alarming. I don't know about you, but I have no interest in seeing human beings evolve into some kind of race of "robocops", or "terminal men", or God forbid, "terminators"; and there is a serious potential for misuse of this infant technology once it develops further.

Note: "Robocop" was a 1987 sci-fi movie which takes place in the near future. Peter Weller plays the role of Alex Murphy; a police officer in Detroit. After an encounter with the bad guys, Murphy is brutally disfigured, and basically left for dead. But, thanks to cybernetics, he is "re-in-cyborgated" as the tough, super-duper, crime-fighting super hero cyborg "Robocop". He is probably everything that Warwick would like to be.

"The Terminal Man" is a sci-fi novel written by famous author Michael Crichton -- Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park -- which was also released as a movie in 1974. In that movie, the main character has an electrode implanted in his brain, in order to try to control his rage. Of course, it's a movie, and so things have to go wrong. Instead of helping him, the man goes on a murderous rampage in the downtown streets of Los Angeles.

As to the "Terminator", I am sure that most of you reading this are familiar with the series of movies starring the new governor of California, and former movie super star, Arnold Schwarzenneger.

But returning to the idea concerning the potential for abuse, can you begin to understand what kind of demonic developments this kind of experimentation could possibly lead to, were it to fall into the wrong hands? When microchip implants become popular, and I have no doubt that they eventually will, this kind of evil technology could theoretically be used to make people think, or feel, whatever those in charge want them to; perhaps even cause them to experience pain if they get out of control. Are you having a problem with an unruly crowd? Well, if they are chipped, just transmit the right signals, and they will instantly be writhing in pain. Instant crowd control in a flash. The need for riot police will become a thing of the past. Even the most dangerous criminal will be reduced to being an obedient sheep.

I am reminded of a Stanley Kubrick movie which I saw many years ago called "A Clockwork Orange". While my memory is faint, in the film, the social behavior of the leader of a group of unruly hooligans is modified through the use of pain, so that eventually, he is forced to act against his will, and even act in a civilized manner. As I said, it has been many years since I saw the movie, so I really cannot recall much more about it than that. The point is though, pain was used to modify human behavior; and it may become possible to do this on a wide scale, if Warwick's implant is perfected.

This technology could also be used to do the exact opposite. If an MMEA-implanted person is feeling sad or depressed, he or she could be automatically made to feel happy again, just by beaming the right signals to their implanted microchip. Big Brother will make all obedient citizens "Techno-Happy". It reminds me of the "happy drug" called "soma" which noted author Aldus Huxley writes about in his prophetic-sounding book about a future eugenic society called "Brave New World". In the enslaving system of the coming world leader known as the Beast, it will be very important to keep everyone happy, particularly as the world's woes continue to increase due to God's Judgments; so that personal productivity remains high, and work quotas are met. After all, that is what the "666" Mark of the Beast global credit system will really be about; that is, slaving away, whether one is happy or sad, while earning a profit for the masters; that is, the International Bankers and the powerful technocrats who will control it all.

In consideration of all of this, Professor Warwick's warning concerning human beings being reduced to nothing more than second-class citizens in a future world controlled by robots, seems all the more prophetic; and I will have more to say on this in another article. Let us not forget that in describing the merchandise of the mysterious Babylon the Great found in the Book of Revelation, the Prophet John did include "slaves, and the souls of men"; as we see here:

"And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men."
Revelation 18:13, KJV

Exactly who will be the masters over these slaves and souls of men? Will it simply be more powerful humans such as the rich International Bankers and the technocrats? Will it be a race of cyborgs? Or is it possible that it might even be a purely robotic race which has surpassed us in intelligence, and which deems us as inferior creatures, as the professor has claimed?

With these words, I will bring part two to a close. We still are not quite done yet. We have covered a lot of territory; but there are still a few more important things I would like to share with you; so I trust that you will join me as we conclude this series in part three.

Please go to part three for the conclusion of this series.
