It seems that the intrusion of technology upon our lives continues to grow each day. CBS catalogued another encroachment (Control) today with a feature on human implants. Technology Kills.
We live in a sea of consciousness. Everything from objects, to words, to concepts, to form and movement and more is merely consciousness. It is the interplay of consciousness that creates the material world.
The sea of consciousness is filled with our thoughts. And thoughts exhibit certain behavior and patterns. Our thoughts look to grow and get stronger by having us think about them, dwell on them; think of an ear worm and a song you cannot get out of your mind. Basically thoughts look to control and manipulate us. (See my Power of Thoughts)
Our thoughts also morph and become something more over time, like the human body and all of life they grow and get stronger. The Bhagavad-gita describes how thoughts morph, grow and mutate:
"While contemplating on the objects of the senses, one develops attachment to them. Attachment leads to desire, and from desire arises anger." 2.62
Technology as I noted in The Way Home is a thought form that has been mutating and morphing for millennia and like all thought forms it looks to control and manipulate us. So what looks like a simple and innocuous effort to implant small chips to better help us perform our jobs, or supposedly make life easier becomes something else. Something bigger and much more insidious. Are cyborgs not far behind?
