‘Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has made several bold predictions regarding the future of humanity both here and on Mars, the influence of artificial intelligence and even the possibility of humans meeting with extraterrestrials.

“Apple will be around a long time, like IBM,” Wozniak said in an interview Friday, as cited by USA Today. “Look at Apple’s cash. It can invest in anything. It would be ridiculous to not expect them to be around. The same goes for Google and Facebook.”

Wozniak previously made a bold prediction regarding the emergence of laptop computers way back in 1982, so he has already shown somewhat of a knack for divination.

In relation to Apple, he’s backing the tech giant to succeed in the field of self-driving cars.

“Apple is such a large company it has to go after big markets,” Wozniak told NBC on Monday. “And self-driving cars is one that we’re all reading about every day…So I’m hoping Apple goes the same way with autonomous cars.”‘

‘Predictive behavior technology is all the rage in everything from advertising to policing to medicine, and is something that we have covered extensively at Activist Post (see our archives here). Technocrats everywhere believe that the supreme being of the universe should be a computer algorithm; because, after all, in its perfection it knows us better than we know ourselves.

The following research from the University of Southern California is a chilling example of how the State could easily employ this technology for literal interventions where potential violence could occur. Beyond the micromanagement of adult relationships, note the final direction at the end of the article: parent-child relationships.

Are we really this lazy to turn over our most intimate interactions to the advice of a computer and hope that it can help manage our every emotion? Are we really that eager to completely eradicate human free will?’

‘An individual who is in a “locked in state,” reports ZDnet.com, is one who remains fully mentally active, but has lost the ability to move. The person experiencing this state is fully cognizant in their mind, but “trapped inside an unresponsive, paralyzed body.” There are varying degrees of this challenging diagnosis. As reported by ScienceDaily.com, some stroke patients who live with Locked-in Syndrome (LIS) may even lose the ability “to swallow or even breathe on their own.” However, with technological help, “a remarkable level of independence” has been achieved.

In 2013, ScienceDaily.com reported that with the use of “sophisticated computerized interfaces,” combined with neurological rehabilitation and a “strong will to live,” LIS patients with nearly complete paralysis had been able to learn to use a joystick or a wheelchair with ever so slight movements of their head. If a one to two degree of movement is manifested as a twitch of the eye, then these movements can correlate with letters or symbols, opening up a world of communication, as documented in the movie The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, a film based on a book written with that method by Jean-Dominique Bauby, a man whose own stroke precipitated LIS.’

‘How upgrading humans will become the next billion-dollar industry. Investors searching for the next transformative technology destined to turn a bunch of Ivy League dropouts into billionaires, and half the market into a loose slot machine, need only look in the mirror.

“The greatest industry of the 21st century will probably be to upgrade human beings,” historian Yuval Harari, author of the fascinating new book “Homo Deus,” told MarketWatch.’

‘The syringe slides in between the thumb and index finger. Then, with a click, a microchip is injected in the employee’s hand. Another “cyborg” is created.

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 injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted.’

‘The robot uprising could be complete in just a few centuries.

That’s according to royal astronomer, Sir Martin Rees, who believe machine life will eventually replace humanity.

He predicts their reign could last billions of years beyond our time on the planet.

Life on Earth has already taken billions of years to evolve, from the proteins and nucleic acids that were the building blocks of life through to more complex mammals and homo sapiens.

But machine intelligence has developed at such an extreme pace, that Sir Martin believes the likelihood is alien life will also take this form.’

‘Computers and brains already talk to each other daily in high-tech labs – and they do it better and better.

For example, disabled people can now learn to govern robotic limbs by the sheer power of their mind.

The hope is that we may one day be able to operate spaceships with our thoughts, upload our brains to computers and, ultimately, create cyborgs.

Now Elon Musk is joining the race.

The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has acquired Neuralink, a company aiming to establish a direct link between the mind and the computer.’

‘The latest technological revolution will make existing technology look like the Stone Age, yet few people outside of academia and industry are even aware of it. Many, if not most, of the people who are driving these technologies are Technocrats who intend to connect the world into a single global entity. Think, ‘hive mind’, ‘global city’ and 2030 Agenda.

Three particular technologies were prominently featured at the prestigious 2017 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from February 27 through March 2.

The first disruptive technology is 5G, or Fifth Generation, cell phone communication protocol. The first keynote speaker was Mats Granryd (Director-General of the Groupe Spéciale Mobile Association, or GSMA). His bio on the Mobile World website states,’

‘Imagine you arrive home after work to discover a new microwave antenna tower stationed at the edge of your backyard fence? How would you respond?

If you’d had non-existent mobile phone reception for years prior (or if you were a techie ‘hooked on faster downloads’) then you might find reason to celebrate!

You might respond as an ambivalent disempowered citizen, “I really wonder about those things but there isn’t much I can do about this anyway.”

You may be in the growing group of empowered action-takers. You’ve either experienced microwave radiation sickness attributable to exposure or you’ve read books and articles on the topic which resonate with your own truth.’
