DARPA, the Department of Defense's research arm, is paying scientists to invent ways to instantly read soldiers' minds using tools like genetic engineering of the human brain, nanotechnology and infrared beams.
The end goal? Thought-controlled weapons, like swarms of drones that someone sends to the skies with a single thought or the ability to beam images from one brain to another.
This week, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) announced that six teams will receive funding under the Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program. Participants are tasked with developing technology that will provide a two-way channel for rapid and seamless communication between the human brain and machines without requiring surgery.
"Imagine someone who's operating a drone or someone who might be analyzing a lot of data," said Jacob Robinson, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Rice University, who is leading one of the teams.

Microsoft, which has taken the ethical implications of AI so seriously that president Brad Smith met with Pope Francis in February to discuss how to best create responsible systems, is reconsidering a proposal to add AI ethics to its formal list of product audits.
Microsoft has several internal working groups dedicated to AI Ethics, including Fairness, Accountability, Transparency and Ethics in AI (FATE), a group of nine researchers “working on collaborative research projects that address the need for transparency, accountability, and fairness in AI.” They also have the advisory board AI Ethics and Effects in Engineering and Research (Aether) which reports to senior leadership.
dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/fate FATE something that happens to a person or thing, esp. something final or negative, such as death or defeat: The fate of numerous smaller buildings is under debate. Attendance has not picked up, and the fate of the show is still in doubt.
Fate is also a power that is considered to cause and control all events, so that people cannot change or control the way things will happen: When we met again by chance, she said, "It must be fate."
GREEK & ROMAN MYTHOLOGY three goddesses who presided over the birth and life of humans. Each person's destiny was thought of as a thread spun, measured, and cut by the three Fates, Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos.
Aether According to ancient and medieval science, aether (Ancient Greek: αἰθήρ, aither), also spelled æther or ether and also called quintessence, is the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. The concept of aether was used in several theories to explain several natural phenomena, such as the traveling of light and gravity. In the late 19th century, physicists postulated that aether permeated all throughout space, providing a medium through which light could travel in a vacuum, but evidence for the presence of such a medium was not found in the Michelson–Morley experiment, and this result has been interpreted as meaning that no such luminiferous aether exists.
αἰθήρ in Greek mythology was thought to be the pure essence that the gods breathed also personified as a deity, the son of Erebus & Nyx

The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 9
Used 49 times in Scripture, the number 9 symbolizes divine completeness or conveys the meaning of finality. Christ died at the 9th hour of the day, or 3 p.m., to make the way of salvation open to everyone. The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is the only one of God's annual Feast days of worship that requires believers to fast for one day. This special day, considered by many Jews to be the holiest of the year, begins at sunset on day 9 of the seventh Hebrew month (Leviticus 23:32).
The number 9 also represents the fruits of God's Holy Spirit, which are Faithfulness, Gentleness, Goodness, Joy, Kindness, Long suffering, Love, Peace and Self-control (Galatians 5:22 - 23).
How is the number 9 related to Old Testament Sorcery? In the Old Testament there are at least 9 groups or individuals who practiced sorcery. Although modern culture and entertainment tends to paint those who practice such 'arts' in a benign or even positive light (e.g. stories and movies directed at children), the motives of Old Testament sorcerers was evil to the core.
God promised to punish the Egyptians and to destroy the counsels of their charmers, conjurers, magicians and those who cast spells (Isaiah 19:3,11 - 12)
Egypt's Pharaoh called upon his sorcerers and magicians to confront the miracles God was doing through Moses and Aaron (Exodus 7:11, 22; 8:7,18)
Balak employs the services of Balaam, who is a well-known soothsayer, to curse the newly freed Israelites (Numbers 22, 23)
Jezebel, the wife of Israel's evil King Ahab, used witchcraft and the evil arts to get her way (2Kings 9:22)
God promised to punish Nineveh for enticing a number of their neighbors like a "mistress of witchcrafts" to indulge in idolatrous practices (Nahum 3)
The Babylonians were well-known for using the services of magicians, astrologers and sorcerers (Isaiah 47:9 - 13, Daniel 2:2,10, 27)
Belshazzar called upon his astrologers and wise men to interpret the "handwriting on the wall" done by the finger of God (Daniel 5:7,15)
God warns his people not to be troubled by "the signs of heaven" as the pagans are with their astrologers (Jeremiah 10:2, Micah 3:6 - 7)
False prophets use divination to deceive others into thinking that they are speaking for God (Jeremiah 14:14, 27:9, Ezekiel 13:6 - 9).
*There are also 9 gifts of the Spirit: the Word of Knowledge, the Word of Wisdom, the Gift of Prophecy, the Gift of Faith, the Gifts of Healings, the Working of Miracles, the Discerning of Spirits, different Kinds of Tongues, the Interpretation of Tongues

“It’s increasingly hard to tell where I end and where the computer begins,” Yuval Harari, a professor of history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, told the audience at the Fast Company European Innovation Festival this week. “In the future, it is likely that the smartphone will not be separated from you at all. It may be embedded in your body or brain, constantly scanning your biometric data and your emotions.”
“Humanity has always remained constant – with the same bodies, brains, minds – through the Roman Empire, Biblical times, and the Stone Age,” said Harari, who has authored several bestselling books that are beloved in Silicon Valley, including "21 Lessons for the 21st Century."
Harari continued: “If we told our ancestors in the Stone Age about our lives today, they would think we are already Gods. But the truth is that even though we have developed more sophisticated tools, we are the same animals. We have the same emotions, the same minds. The coming revolution will change that. It will change not just our tools, it will change the human being itself.”
raindrop: Not to mention that the RC church removed the commandment forbidding us from making images of anything, in heaven or on earth, and bowing down to pray and worship. It is SO messed up.

Joecool: Yes Thank You God for Tacos, also Thank You our salvation doesn't rely upon us.
Jul 16, 2019 9:29:32 GMT -6
mike: Amen Joe. I like to think that our salvation was dependant on us. Adam & Eve changed that. Not that the Lord want prepared

bernie: I was raised in the cult of Rome, but my 17th B-Day I joined the military and was gifted a Gideons NT at the induction center. I left the rituals & superstitions of Rome shortly thereafter, when God's Word revealed the truth to me.

mike: Isa 11:10, John 3:14, John 8:28, John 12:32 - and many indicate that it is the SON and only the Son who should be the focus of mens hearts. Unfortunately there are those who believe otherwise in many, too many other belief systems
Jul 16, 2019 10:41:13 GMT -6
bernie: Salvation is not in rituals, good works, or anything else. It's a free gift wrapped up in a whole lot of grace, mercy & love, and it' available to all freely by simple faith in Christ crucified as the perfect & complete payment for the sins of the world.

bernie: The Roman Mass violates the book of Hebrews which says there are no more sacrifices for sin. It claims the priest calls down Christ from Heaven and re-sacrifices him at every mass they perform. If that's not blasphemous, I don't know what is.

EnochWalked: Basically, someone who knew Luther wrote an ambiguous, out of context, half-remembered supposed quote of what Luther said to him one day. Luther was probably talking about Christ's unfairly maligned reputation, and how God "made him to be sin for us".

bora: There was a point that the Father withdrew his spirit from Christ. Perhaps it was then that sin was upon the Savior and he died as an eternal payment.

EnochWalked: "Included in this will be an international court based on Biblical principles." They really do plan for a One World Government, run from Jerusalem, under Rabbinic law. I think we know what sort of person they want as the leader of this government.

EnochWalked: “Even in a benign AI scenario we will be left behind,” he said. “With a high-bandwidth brain-machine interface, we can actually go along for the ride. We can have the option of merging with AI.”
