Vaccine status stored on a microchip? Science fiction becomes reality
The implant can be read by any device using the near-field communication (NFC) protocol – technology used for contactless payments and keyless entry systems.
PASSPORTS UNDER THE SKIN
The world has taken its first glimpse into a future in which vaccine passports are implanted under the skin, culminating decades worth of research on RFID on an international scale.
Swedish start-up hub, Epicenter, says it has designed a scannable microchip that can be implanted in arms to display people’s COVID vaccination status, along with controversial company Biohax.
In a recently released video, we see a woman unlocking doors with her hand, while the presenter shows an implanted microchip in his upper arm that is linked to a smart phone device:
The company already implants its employees with microchips, and now hopes to share this type of technology with the world to ‘assist’ with the COVID-19 recovery.
“Right now it is very convenient to have a COVID passport always accessible on your implant,” chief disruption officer, Hannes Sjöblad, told the interviewer.
Who are the ‘conspiracy theorists’ now?
Two years earlier, Sjöblad told ITV, “I want us humans to open up and improve our sensory universe, our cognitive functions … I want to merge humans with technology and I think it will be awesome.”
The idea of having your hand chipped to access public goods or private property — to receive a mark in order to “buy, sell, or trade” — should alarm anyone, regardless of religious persuasion.
The same goes for using an implanted brain-computer interface to access the digital realm, as Elon Musk plans to do with his company, Neuralink.
Yet for a growing fringe, this invasive tech isn’t just desirable. It’s already normal.
Naturally, this push has begun in the heart of implanted microchips: Sweden.
Presently, some 5,000 Swedes use implanted radio frequency identification (RFID) chips to open doors, pay cashless, present medical records, access concert venues, and ride public transportation:
In 2018 — the same year Biohax gained international attention for chipping thousands of Swedish hands— MIT Technology Review boosted it with the fawning headline: “This company embeds microchips in its employees, and they love it.”
According to Ars Technica, as of 2018 an estimated 50,000-100,000 people worldwide have microchip implants, primarily in their hands.
Furthermore, a 2019 analysis in Nature reported about 160,000 people have deep brain stimulation devices implanted in their heads. Currently, this is only done ‘out of necessity’ to treat disorders like epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease, or even addiction and depression.
Of these devices, only 34 are true brain-computer interfaces.
However, with current advances in technology, enormous injections of capital, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) recent approval, that number will rapidly climb.
Enthusiasts say they aim to propel these technologies from healing to enhancement.
THE TRANSHUMANIST PUSH
Since the first human-grade RFID implant was patented in 1997, followed by FDA approval in 2004, subdermal microchips have become just another device in a growing cyborg toolkit.
The ‘Internet of Bodies‘ has also gained enormous traction among the medical establishment.
At the ultimate end, the concept of natural-born humanity is to be abolished.
For more than six decades, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has funded Human 2.0 projects, with particular interest in human-computer interfaces.
Citing these and many other human-machine hybrids, the World Economic Forum’s chairman Klaus Schwab recently spelled out his vision of civilizational transformation.
His widely read books, “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” (2016) and “The Great Reset” (2020), both describe inexorable progress toward total technocracy.
The same idea emerges in a 2019 government analysis by Policy Horizons Canada, entitled “Exploring Biodigital Convergence.”
According to the authors, “Digital technology can be embedded in organisms [and today] biotechnology may be at the cusp of a period of rapid expansion—possibly analogous to digital computing circa 1985.”
Its success will hinge on sweeping surveillance.
The document goes on to describe tracking chips, wearable bio-sensors, internal organ sensors, web-connected neurotech, swallowable digital pills — merging body with the digital beehive.
Last spring, the UK’s Ministry of Defense published the jarring study, “Human Augmentation: The Dawn of a New Paradigm.”
The authors promise this “will become increasingly relevant, partly because it can directly enhance human capability and behaviour, and partly because it is the binding agent between people and machines.” Surveying today’s cyborgs, they write:
“Once inserted, these ‘chips’ can … replace many of our keys and passwords, allowing us to unlock doors, start vehicles, and even log onto computers and smartphones.”
All the above authors fret over how we must accept the “inevitable” fusion of man with machine.
If military strategists, corporate elites and governments are taking this prospect seriously, so should we.
‘NEW NORMAL’ = TOTAL DIGITISATION
For people with any sense at all, the notion of having a microchip jabbed into your hand (or your head) triggers animal revulsion. Disturbing as it may be, a more immediate concern is the widespread use of non-invasive biometric systems.
Wherever the ‘new normal’ takes hold, access to society is granted or denied on the basis of arbitrary “health and safety” concerns. Today, it’s masks or vaccine status.
Tomorrow, it could be ideology. Authorities don’t have to chip you if they can simply scan your smartphone and tell you to get lost, or lock you in your dwelling pod whenever “the numbers” rise.
Do you think it will simply stop at these measures?
As Biometric company Clear’s CEO, Caryn Seidman-Becker, told CNBC in 2020:
“Just like screening was forever changed post-9/11, in a post-COVID environment, you’re going to see screening and public safety significantly shift. But this time it’s beyond airports. It’s sports stadiums, it’s retail, it’s office buildings, it’s restaurants.”
Now, as predicted, the surveillance will begin being pushed inside of you.
And it won’t stop there.
Taking a more cerebral angle, tech mogul Bryan Johnson recently founded ‘Kernel’ to develop non-invasive brain-scanning helmets to enhance your health and happiness.
The devices can also gather users’ neurological data. Last summer, Johnson told Bloomberg Businessweek that by 2030, he’d like to put his BCI helmets in every American household.
These people want to completely transform our mental and physical spaces. It isn’t even a secret.
The Untact program in South Korea is specifically designed to replace human interaction with social robots and the Metaverse. Truly a Brave New World manifested.
At the pandemic’s outset, American writers at The Atlantic and CNN urged U.S. leaders to adopt Chinese authoritarianism. Their wish is beginning to come true.
They want transhumanism, whether they use the term or not.
It’s past time to smash their devices.
One by one across the globe, canaries are falling dead in the digital coal mine.
We see implanted vaxxports in Sweden, lockdowns for the unvaccinated in Austria, Germany and Darwin, and yes, quarantine camps in Australia.
While I doubt any population will be forcibly chipped like wayward housecats — at least not in the near future — no nightmarish policy is truly off the table.
In the past 21 months, Australia has seen mandated mRNA gene therapies, QR code-based vaccine passports, mass deletion of supposed “misinformation,” and increased surveillance.
If the biosecurity state can mandate an obedience mask to buy groceries, what can’t they do?
Resist their measures at every turn. Dismantle the structures they’ve already put in place.
I’m no absolutist. Tools are tools, and every naked ape needs one.
For the most part, I couldn’t care less if techno-fetishists chip themselves or refashion their appendages.
Had their subculture remained on the fringe, I’d still find such people fascinating.
But that’s not what’s happening.
Riding waves of germaphobia — the ultimate organic disruption — tech titans and their think-tank ministers are establishing a secular religion.
The world’s wealthiest men, wielding the most powerful tools on earth, are erecting inescapable systems of control. We can’t combat them if we don’t acknowledge what they are.
Scientism is their faith. Technology is their sacrament. Their cult is a cyborg theocracy.
Even if they rain fire from the sky with the press of a button, never bend the knee to their silicon gods.

Hey… look into who funded Epicenter! You won’t be surprised….
I thought they could include all the info they want on an invisible nanochip. Does this microchip need to be relatively large in order to accommodate “the termination centre”?
