The year 2015 brings a new kind of American, one that is largely unconcerned with anything other than the most basic needs of sustenance and entertainment. While, in 2007, Americans who were willing to engage the ruling class in the idea of microchipping humans were still a distinct minority, the seven years after the report has seen a major increase in the population of individuals who are indeed willing to consider the possibility.
But, while those actually concerned about the idea of a microchipped population are often bombarded with misinformation such as rumors that the AHCA contains provisions to forcibly implant microchips, the concerns over microchipping (mandatory and otherwise) are very real. Indeed, not only does the technology exist, it is currently being implemented. Indeed, the goal is to gradually expand the frequency and ubiquity of such technology until it becomes the norm and, eventually, a procedure enforced by law.
As the report mentions, forms of biometric identification for payment and ID have been used for years, with relatively warm reception amongst the general public despite the fact that the majority have yet to join the bandwagon.
Regardless, such technology has expanded at a rapid pace over the last ten years, intensifying its presence over the last five especially. For instance, in June 2012 it was announced by Homeland Security News Wire that researchers at the Biometric Technologies Laboratory at the University of Calgary have improved upon current commercially available biometric identification technologies to the point of creating a form of artificial intelligence capable of making decisions regarding biometric information received from a variety of different sources.The new biometric security program works by simulating the “learning patterns and cognitive processes of the brain.” The system was developed by the research and application of “neural network-based models for information fusion.”
For years, many have mocked the idea of implantable microchips and cyborgs as both conspiracy theories and science fiction. 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.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.
In a testament to just how fast the coming cyberization of mankind has progressed, a new report published by the Daily Mail entitled, “Hitler would have loved The Singularity: Mind-blowing benefits of merging human brains and computers,” reaffirms most of what has been written about on this subject. Namely, that the merging of man and machine is much closer than the average person is willing to believe.
