Yet will the future allow such a possibility? Must technology really take us down some dystopian path...like a double-edged sword it can both enhance and entrap. Yet these are old debates: what is happening though is an acceleration in technological possibilities that are outstripping the spiritual, ethical, and mindful leadership that humans are employing to oversee the technology. Never deny ourselves; we hold the key.
This article titled 'One generation is all they need' is by an associate professor of criminology and discusses human implanting and chipping in a very realistic way:
'By the time my four-year-old son is swathed in the soft flesh of old age, he will likely find it unremarkable that he and almost everyone he knows will be permanently implanted with a microchip. Automatically tracking his location in real time, it will connect him with databases monitoring and recording his smallest behavioural traits. '
There should be no fear of freedom or human apathy. We make the choices and walk the Way.
May 2007 bring us all Health, Happiness, Spirit, Wisdom, and Compassion.
