Are You Working Next to a Transhuman Cyborg?
April 04, 2017
(VERO BEACH, FLA) The next time you show up for work, take a good look around, because you may not know it, but you could be working next to a transhuman cyborg.
Microchip impants are now becoming the norm for many businesses around the world as companies and organizations move forward to take advavantage of global tracking technology.
The motives seem innocent enough. Businesses are seeking ways to improve effeciency, provides more security for employees, or to offer extended benefits for human resource purposes.
However, the trade-off for such benefits is the diminishing of privacy for individuals.
Would you trade your own privacy for additional paid time off or vacation time?
According to SFGate:
What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.
The chip is supposedly biologically safe, but continued concerns are being brought up that not enough data has been generated to justify that point.
The biggest point in favor is convenience for employees and business owners.

Can the chips be hacked? Once again, according to SFGate:
Ben Libberton, a microbiologist at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute, says hackers could conceivably gain huge swathes of information from embedded microchips. The ethical dilemmas will become bigger the more sophisticated the microchips become.
“The data that you could possibly get from a chip that is embedded in your body is a lot different from the data that you can get from a smartphone,” he says. “Conceptually you could get data about your health, you could get data about your whereabouts, how often you’re working, how long you’re working, if you’re taking toilet breaks and things like that.”
Christians have raised concerns that the microchip insertion in humans will lead to control in the Last Days, fulfilling the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast:
Revelation 13:16-17 King James Version (KJV)
16 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:
17 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.
