Some are seeking to improve their lives and some are taking the ideology further into the area of DIY and open source modification.

But in the pursuit of smart bodies, what are the boundaries and what are the medical safeguards that need to be considered?

  1. Impressive that while this is new and exciting to these people almost every Christian in the planet have known most of this for decades if not hundreds of years. Praise his mighty name!!!

  2. 2:30 take notice he is holding a monster energy drink which in roman numerals translates to 666 and he is taking a chip or mark in his hand. Christians wake up people are already taking the mark of the beast do not take it ever.

  3. I find it troublesome when people say "…individuals are taking their evolution into their own hands." In truth, evolution only occurs between individuals, on the species level. Individual development, now, that I can live with. But nothing that I add to myself will affect evolution.

    Oh, and please don't try to connect your nervous system to a piece of junk from some website, or something you cobble together. That's a terrible idea.

  4. Interesting thing. The name of the road on top of her clinic is "34 Leicester". I found out Leicester means : A sheep of a BREED often CROSSED with OTHER BREEDS to produce lamb meat for industry. Does that sound creepy?👀

  5. Nobody will have to be forced to get 'chipped.' Angelina Jolie or Beyonce will get chipped (if they aren't already) and everyone will line up to receive the 'mark of the beast'. They'll be climbing over each other. This is a near-total capitulation of the rights of the individual in our society.

  6. It is not merely the devices one might think of having implanted, but companies that gain power over you. Having upgraded skills sounds great, but it is difficult to imagine a scenario in which you do not give up autonomy.

  7. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Revelation 13:16‭-‬17 KJV

  8. The things that you can just do manually the chip does it instantly. But I don't see how that makes you any different it's not like it's uploading data into your brain that's making you into a superhuman

  9. Any woman who employs manmade bio-modification for the purposes of birth control is not a biological female but trans-human. They are already amongst us.
