Multiple new technologies are peeking over the horizon, supposedly in response to various crises. The U.S. government has been printing money like mad to finance, first, people staying home during the pandemic and now, the war in Ukraine. This will destroy the economy sooner or later, and when it does, it will usher in a centralized bank digital currency, ending financial privacy.
Many governments tried introducing health passes in response to the Covid pandemic, which would have ended health privacy. These developments seem overly intrusive to many people, but they are just responses to emergencies, right? “Desperate times call for desperate measures.” Maybe that’s all it is?
I don’t think so.
These technologies are complicated and could not have been created overnight. They involve massive data ecosystems with large amounts of computing power. They both would ultimately require digital identification, a digital counterpart for each of our own physical bodies.
Most of us may instinctively dislike the thought of being physically tracked, having our financial transactions monitored, and our conversations recorded, but we’ve been on this path for years.
Think about your relationship with your phone.
I’ll be the first to admit it: I carry my phone everywhere, bank electronically, and talk with friends on the phone all the time. I wish I didn’t need to, but let’s face it, most of us have to live that way. I want to be able to communicate with my teenagers, so yes, we have phones. Without regularly checking bank accounts, theft goes unnoticed. I learned this the hard way in my early 20s. And I wish my loved ones and I were all in some sort of pod-village, but we’re scattered all over the globe, so yes, I say things over the phone all the time.
And, of course, people like Edward Snowden have been warning us for years about the massive amount of data harvesting being done via smartphones. Some people think Snowden is a villain. Most just ignore him. But he was proven right when Colorado Gov. Jared Polis admitted to using phone data to determine whether or not people were complying with lockdown orders. Snowden was proven right, again, when we found out that the CDC had been buying cell phone data to determine lockdown compliance.
We could leave our phones at home if we needed to break quarantine rules. We can turn the phones off, put them in a faraday cage, and move them to another room if we want to have a sensitive conversation. We can conduct business transactions in cash if we don’t feel like the IRS needs to know about them.
Lest you think I’m some horrible criminal, I’m not. I needed to break quarantine rules to get animals processed. If my ex-husband wants to give me extra money because the kids need braces, we’re technically supposed to report that to the IRS. The rules are ridiculous; they make it difficult to run small businesses and to be kind to each other.

So what will happen when we can’t leave the phone at home?
Well, it turns out that Klaus Schwab and the Davos crowd have been thinking about this for quite a long time. Developing an implantable phone predates our current crises by more than five years.
In November 2015, the World Economic Forum published a paper called Deep Shift: 21 Ways Software Will Transform Global Society. And the very first Deep Shift they discuss is implantable technology.
The WEF introduces implantable technology as the next logical step in medicine. They compare it to pacemakers and cochlear implants. This is extremely disingenuous. A pacemaker is a mechanical device that sends electrical impulses to the heart so that it will beat at the desired rate. The first pacemaker was implanted successfully in 1960. Pacemaker technology has been around a long, long time, and while modern pacemakers can be digitally connected and monitored by doctors, they certainly don’t have to be.
Implantable smartphones would use different technology.
A small number of people worldwide have already been chipped with devices that work using the same technology as contactless credit cards. People wave their hand close to a terminal, and a small amount of data is exchanged, allowing the chipped individual to buy their drinks or open their doors.
The first implants were in 2017, and then in Sweden in 2020, about 4000 people were microchipped. In these cases, the people microchipped were sold on the technology for the sake of convenience and safety from catching Covid via surface transmission. The microchips replaced credit cards and cash and, in some cases, allowed Swedes to enter their office buildings rather than having to carry their electronic cards with them.
Personally, I don’t find it that inconvenient to carry cards. I like cash. I don’t see a big difference between pulling out my wallet and swiping my hand in front of something. An adult should be able to keep track of a wallet or purse; if you can’t, then maybe you shouldn’t be driving or allowed access to office buildings.
And as far as safety from disease is concerned, even the CDC admitted that surface transmission of Covid is highly unlikely. Neither convenience nor safety from germs makes me interested in getting a data-sharing device (what your phone is) transplanted into my body.
I have not gotten the impression too many other regular people are interested in implantable technology, either.
In 2010, PositiveID decided not to pursue an implantable device that could store medical records due to negative press and the fact that no one really wanted it.
But the technocratic class is hugely enthusiastic about implantable technology. Indeed, they consider it inevitable. The desire to be able to scan people and immediately pull up all kinds of information about them has never gone away. And our technology, now, has gotten better than ever.
Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, gave an interview at the World Economic Forum in which he discussed biological chips being placed in tablets. “Once you take the tablet, it dissolves into your stomach, and then it sends a signal to say you took the tablet. So, imagine the implications of it, the compliance.”
"Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla explains Pfizer's new tech to Davos crowd: "ingestible pills" – a pill with a tiny chip that send a wireless signal to relevant authorities when the pharmaceutical has been digested. "Imagine the compliance," he says…. pic.twitter.com/EzGcapbuC5

And this, I think, is where Mr. Bourla lets the cat out of the bag. The Davos crowd has been trying to sell us plebs on safety, convenience, and medical technology, but it’s all beside the point. It’s about compliance, and I’m not even sure how hard they’re trying to hide it anymore.
In 2017, the Washington Post ran an article about “nudge units” in the U.K., U.S., Germany, and Australia. These nudge units employ behavioral scientists to find solutions to problems by nudging the general population. Problems to address included convincing people to take flu vaccines (this article came out pre-Covid) and to attend college.
Recently, the Army released a recruitment video for its PSYOPS unit. It boasts, “Have you ever wondered who’s pulling the strings?” As someone with many military and ex-military friends and family members, I find this bizarre. You’re not supposed to brag about PSYOPS. PSYOPS is supposed to be under the radar, and a few decades ago, it was largely about convincing people from foreign nations that Americans were the good guys.
This changed, quietly, in 2013.
The legalization of the propagandizing of Americans
For sixty years, the Smith-Mundt Act prohibited the U.S. Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors from disseminating government-produced programming within the United States over fears that the federal government might propagandize the people.
In 2013, the Act was repealed, and the modest protections the American people had enjoyed were removed. The federal government has far more flexibility with the truth now. They have admitted to taking liberties with the truth regarding the war in Ukraine. Officials claim to release intel that may or may not be true in order to throw off the Russians; unfortunately, Americans watch the news too, and we are now being propagandized just as much as the Russians are.
You are being pushed.
Powerful actors, both within governments and the World Economic Forum, are pushing us toward a world in which objective truth doesn’t matter, only the digital narrative. The “best and brightest” are being recruited to help pull the narrative strings. Everyone else is expected to just go along.
Apple released its first iPhone in 2007. Over the past 15 years, while smartphone technology has made communication easier than ever, it has also caused a host of problems, particularly in children. Nevertheless, the relentless push to put everything on digital platforms continues.
Young adults and children are overwhelmingly dependent on smartphones for socialization. I know this because I have teenagers, and I’ve been watching it happen for years. A phone is constantly glued to their hands. I’ve seen adults eagerly tell my children about how they live in the digital world. And while most of the over-40 crowd is still comfortable socializing in person, we all depend on the digital world for income. Even the farmers and artisans that are so often idealized usually depend on the digital world for advertising and payment processing.

The move into the digital world has been gradual, but things are speeding up.
The past two years have seen a huge push toward digital identity, digital currency, and social credit systems. Existing powers want to push everything onto digital platforms as much as possible because digital platforms are easy to manipulate and control.
Nudge units and social credit systems make it clear that the ruling class sees it as their job to dictate to the rest of the world exactly how we ought to live. Digital currency and digital identification will give them a great deal of power in enforcing their ideas. When our digital identity merges with our physical identity via smartphone transplants, it will be practically impossible to opt out in any significant fashion.
In 2015, the World Economic Forum predicted that the first implantable smartphones would be available commercially in 2023. Perhaps something like the BBC show Years and Years discussed?
2022 is just about halfway over, and the WEF’s predictions have a funny way of coming true. We need to be watching for the rollout of this new technology.
It will be framed as inevitable, as the next logical step.
We don’t have to accept that. In the Deep Shift WEF report referenced above, more than 85% of respondents predicted that by 2025, 10% of reading glasses would be connected to the internet. Google has, indeed, tried rolling out smart glasses a few times, but they’ve never caught on. One of the main reasons has been privacy concerns.
The ruling classes may think of the plebs as nothing but material to be molded and shaped into whatever they find useful, but a lot of people are catching on. While many countries rolled out vaccine passports during Covid, many also scrapped the programs within two years.
Smartphone implants will be available soon, probably next year. I don’t think governments will start by mandating them; they will just be advertised as super cool and convenient and the Next Big Thing. Don’t be fooled. The public has stalled some of these tech projects before simply by refusing to engage. We can drag our feet as long as possible this time, too. We have to at least try.
What are your thoughts?
What do you think about smartphone implants? Do you think this is just another “conspiracy theory?” You know, like vaccine passports and the like? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
About Marie Hawthorne
A lover of novels and cultivator of superb apple pie recipes, Marie spends her free time writing about the world around her.
My husband has just been diagnosed with borderline psychosis.
One thing that played a big part in him literally falling apart was having a smartphone. He was convinced it had been hacked but didn’t dare turn it off….
As part of his recovery the phone stays switched off.
Imagine if that was implanted in his body!!??
Crypto Currency, NO THANKS, implantable phones? Over my dead body! Nothing good can come from all of this interference in our lives! Let’s go back to the good old days, circa 1984 anyone?
Yes please. Over my dead body.
I have no social media, do have a smartphone but it goes on airplane or off or away from me more than not. I am not addicted to it and want the old days.
I grew a baseball sized tumor in my left ovary for God knows how long before it was found. 10,000% KNOW it was because of my Razor (remember those?!) phone that rarely left my back left pocket. Like an idiot, I put it then in my right pocket after surgery to then form fibroids on my right side.
For the love of all things intelligent, keep ur phones off AND out of ur bodies.
Some differences between smartphone tracking (whether implanted or not) and court-ordered ankle monitors would be that 1) local court-mandated ankle monitors on people guilty of “something” and have therefore given up their 4th Amendment right to privacy, and 2) smartphone tracking turns everyone (guilty or not) into serfs under the rule of central planning tyrants — who have long despised the freedoms once guaranteed by the US Constitution.
Whatever one otherwise thinks of Warren Buffett, I do admire his refusal to carry a smartphone.
It’s also worth recalling the words of the ancient Roman historian Cicero who before he was murdered wrote that the more corrupt the government, the more numerous are the laws.
In addition, the privacy rights to your personal medical information that the HIPPA law once guaranteed will eventually be trashed once such implants eventually replace the private relationship between you and your chosen doctors. Patents for such implant technology have already been granted.
The notes below are just about current court-ordered ankle monitors. You can use your imagination to visualize how central planning tyrants will use vastly more intrusive technology to turn us all into their slaves despite the illusion of being occasional free range explorers.
I don’t even know how to put into words how concerning this is. Yet I see how easily we, the world, are just sliding into this simple mind set, “mother knows best. do what your mother says. follow the rest of the lemmings. the cliff is just ahead and there will be freedom in the falling.”
At 70 I’ve seen and heard a lot. There have been times I was a part of the forward moving tide, but I’m so glad I stopped and got off that crazy merry-go-round. Once I did, I became aware that it was all a movie prop made out of paper. Most of it wasn’t real.
I really feel for those who are mesmerized by such stupidity. To give up all personal privacy, is to give up your life.
My thought is that this site has gone “full-on conspiracy wacko.” After a few crazy “Jeremiah” posts yesterday and now this article, y’all need to step back and catch a breath.
Look, just because some org like the WEF comes out with a post (like 7 years ago) about implantable software doesn’t mean it will happen, nor will they force anyone to get it. So what if volunteers to try it as part of a study. Why haven’t your heard anything about the vaunted success of this pilot program? Because it’s a flop. I’d bet most test subjects want that crap out of them. But it wasn’t the WEF or the Bilderburgers (Burgerbuilders?) who did it.
Remember when we’d all have Google Glass and could tell everyone everything we did in a day because it’d be on the cloud? Another failure. It wasn’t just privacy. They just sucked.
I know times are tough, and the Brandon administration could make things better by going on vacation for the next two years, but just don’t jump on every crackpot rumor you see on the internet. It reminds me of the paranoia so many seem to have for the Masons.
Have you noticed that in the past, say 3 years most if not all conspiracy theories have happened? Nothing is conspiracy anymore, just Future Thinking.
I think that’s a bit hyperbolic.
Seems odd to me, that they are pushing all these techno based things, when they also seem hell bent on going green which cannot sustain our current population, at our current lifestyle. Which would include all their techno gizmoids.
Of course one could argue that is their intent: Population reduction.
Looking back at the Arab Spring, no one saw that one coming (to include our three-letter agencies). No one could of predicted the current geo-political realignment, energy realignment, food crisis (there already was a food crisis pre-Russian invasion), from the Ukraine/Russian war.
The WEF might try to never let a crisis go to waste, but trying to control a riot/social unrest/civil war is like trying to turn a incoming cat 5 hurricane with a box fan.
Case in point: The Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO), issued a warning that the state of Illinois and parts of the Midwest, could experience brownouts and significantly increase in rate costs.
While soaring prices in coal and natural gas have been to a degree linked to the global energy realignment from the Ukraine/Russian war, one of the biggest factors is coal plants are going offline/retiring. The green energy production that is supposed to replace those plants are not in-placed now to pick up the lost capacity.
Last year the state of Illinois passed what was called the most aggressive climate bill in the nation, the Clean Energy and Jobs Act.
So, what was the result?
Lack in investment in the fossil fuel industry in the state.
Coal power plant owners looked at the possibilities, crunched the math and came up with they would not see an return on investment for continuing maintenance and upgrades in the foreseeable future.
So, they are shutting down. No point in investing if you are going to be forced to shutdown anyways.
Where does that leave Illinois and other parts of the Midwest? Rolling brown/blackouts and higher energy costs.
How much fun is that going to be during a heat wave or snow storm?
Go long on Merino wool.
Not 5 minutes after I posted my last, just read an article about an Axios interview with Biden climate advisor Gina McCarthy. Yeah, watched the vid. She is calling for censorship of people questioning the transition and cost to green energy.
Lets wait a year or 5 and see what things look like.
I have no doubts that they would love to implement something like this but I don’t believe it will be successful. On the other hand the more people accept and rely on tech the more control they (gov and big tech) have. My husband and I don’t partake in social media. Our phones go on airplane mode or turned off at night. I keep any cameras on phones, laptop, tablets covered. You can cover your cameras using a drop of dark nail polish. It easily peels off if you need to remove it to use for any reason. I do this all the time and remove it when my parents FaceTime our son. Also I know there’s a lot of money to be made in digital currency right now but we refuse to partake in that as well. That’s just one more step to handing over control. Maybe I don’t know enough about it but that’s my opinion with what I know. Yes I realize the dollar is losing value so we are investing in tangible assets that will always be in demand.
Getting 50m individual Americans to sign up won’t be hard. Just make it a condition of SNAP.
They don’t need to convince the rest. They only need a few business sectors on board and life will swiftly become almost impossible for anyone that fails to comply.
Insurance will be a key one.
Soon the only way to demonstrate your eligibility for life insurance and car insurance will be by having a digital ID that can be queried. Otherwise your health status cannot be determined and you might be “too great a risk” to be given a mortgage, or get behind the wheel of a car.
We’ll end up as Edgar Friendly.
Of course if they start a universal basic income, that will get the poor on board too….
Completely unconcerned about this. I would just say…”no.” And that would be that.
You don’t HAVE TO carry a phone on you. Honest. The fact that you do, even though you dont have to, doesn’t mean there is a conspiracy. Baskin Robbins wants me to buy ice cream. They put out adds “nudging me” to go buy some. Is this some malevolent force at work? No. Its just business. I don’t have to buy it.
Prepping is also, for some, a business. It is an industry. I will occasionally read an article “nudging me” in some direction or other. To click a link. To buy some shitty food bucket. To believe that the world is out to get me and I better be prepared to not get got.
Is it a psyop from the article writer or site owner? No. Its just business.
Relax. Its all just business. ????
Misreading The River,
Powerful is not the word, “No.”
Some will argue that their all encompassing power to force each and every one of us into their dystopian mega cities is absolute.
Something tells me at least half of us look at that and say, “No.”
So will we all be as Ivor puts it, Edgar Friendly?
Better to Edgar Friendly, than ” . . . a 47-year-old virgin sittin’ around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake singing “I’m an Oscar-Meyer Wiener”.
Granted there will be those who will run, willingly, toward the WEF FEMA camps for their approved meal rations, Big-tech censored free Wi-Fi, pronoun virtue-signaling, anti-Semites and you will own nothing and be happy.
For the rest of us, “No,” sounds good.
This the beginning of the Mark of the Beast. And yes eventually everyone that’s left alive will HAVE to pledge their allegiance to the Beast system. Get to know the Lord Jesus Christ before you can no longer do so! Your life depends on it!????????
This article is SPOT ON! As Barbara Doulas pointed out, the Mark of the Beast has been ‘creeping in’. It all starts out as fun or convenient; then it will be suggested, highly suggested, and then mandatory. Expect tax breaks for those that ‘comply with the suggestion’.
Mark of the beast.
