Creating Waves of Awareness
Scientific technology inches closer toward science fiction every day. I just read about the giant squid that mimics '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea' by Jules Verne. Then, I read about the child who was required to wear a micro-chipped school uniform 'badge' in order to enter school. Now, I find out about the progress of micro-chipped drugs, which will share your interior with doctors and probably the government.
One quote which I found telling, "We've got to be careful about the guesses we make on things like preserved specimens. We do the best to infer what's going on based on the info we have, but a lot of the times we're wrong," Vecchione says.
I'm simply wondering why we need to collect information from a mechanical data collector that travels inside the body when we have people who can provide information through their sensations, words and life experience? I wonder why we can't collect the information using the time tested observations of tongue, pulse, reflexes, color, countenance and observations of those who live with the person in question?
In a time when spy cameras can be found everywhere and anywhere, when people visit the airport for their insides X-rayed and scanned for implants, contrabands, narcotics, weapons and what-not, do we really need more invasive devices to seek and destroy?
As technology develops smaller nano technology, the possibility that humans will carry, ingest or be injected with nano-devices without consent and become walking targets, just like the squids carry cameras becomes evermore evident. This foretells a total loss of autonomy and perhaps forced medication. I don't know how society will prevent negative applications of technology and promote only positive applications.
Natural News says:
The age of pharmaceutical microchipping is now upon us. Novartis AG, one of the largest drug companies in the world, has announced a plan to begin embedding microchips in medications to create "smart pill" technology.
The microchip technology is being licensed from Proteus Biomedical of Redwood City, California. Once activated by stomach acid, the embedded microchip begins sensing its environment and broadcasting data to a receiver worn by the patient. This receiver is also a transmitter that can send the data over the internet to a doctor.
The idea behind all this is to create "smart pills" that can sense what's happening in the body and deliver that information to the patient's doctor. Novartis plans to start microchipping its organ transplant anti-rejection drugs and then potentially expand microchipping to other pharmaceuticals in its product lineup. This same technology could soon end up in pills made by other drug companies, too.
Your views, comments and questions welcome
Put on your thinking caps and tell us how these 'marked' drugs can be used for or against you?
What problems can you predict when many chips get into the body?
Do you feel these chips (I just love the name, you'd think they were yummy potato chips), have been thoroughly tested and composed of safe inert materials?
Where in the body do these chips travel?
My thought, "Is too much information of no good?" states that sometimes we can proceed more humanly, more respectfully, more honestly in medical sciences by investigating the basics using our senses and our intellect, rather than probing to a level that just gives 'data' without any basis of understanding.
I believe it is time for Medical Ethics Experts to help guide the actions of pharmaceutical companies and the medical profession. Sometimes we must say, "No, we have gone too far." Have we released a monster?
