GODLESS: DOES TECHNOLOGY EFFECT OUR BELIEF IN A HIGHER POWER

Silhouette of Person Standing Beside Cross during Sunset

“Why is it being replaced?”


a new form of worship

For the past few thousand years man has worshiped a higher power. but what happens the more people become not only aware of self, but are deep into our gadgets. So much so that we begin to follow the practices not in alignment with our cultural backgrounds. We are ritualistic when it comes to our need to always be connected to our digital devices. We carry devices around like it’s our bible, and we can’t help but to look down even if it’s for something very mundane.

belief system in jeopardy

How could ones belief system be in jeopardy because they are into technology. Well, the things that beliefs have challenged for so long are being made possible today. So people are less interested in the intricacy of the idea and more about the burden of proof. And the more technology we have the more information is out here, the more people challenge what is it they believe in.

is it going away

Religion is going away, but is technology really an aspect of the decline? Or, are we just more aware? But that awareness comes as a result of having so much technology readily available.

MICROMANAGE OFFSPRING: HOW SOCIETY FEELS ABOUT IMPLANTED CHIPS IN CHILDREN

Green Ram Card Collection

“We need to monitor them.”


track your child

As a parent, you want to monitor what your child is doing at all times. That means you have to constantly be on the up and up, especially in these ever changing times. So as time progress, the idea that we could possibly implant chips into our children could be something of the future. This way parents not only can track their child in case of an emergency,they can tell where they are at, at all times. Kids wouldn’t like being tracked, but they don’t understand the hurt a parent feels when that phone call is made that their child is missing. How do you go about this process?

government intervention

For this to be something that could get put into place, you’re talking years and years of fighting lawmakers. Because you have to take into consideration the health effects. But also the rights of the child being chipped. You are their parents, this is obvious, but they are also individuals themselves to a certain age. So if a parent chips their child, at a certain age that kid now has right to know what has been put into their bodies. And if they are not fine with that, it is to be removed. Why, well it’s because a human is not your property even if it is your child. They have the right to know. And also back to the health effects, what, if anything can attributed to the long term implant in your body?

what’s it really built for

Are these chips we’re embracing being used to only track where our children are going? Or will there be other data connected to the child that can be used. Meaning, Facebook has affiliates that advertise to the users when certain keywords are constantly used. Now you are wondering why so much about a certain model car is being marketed to you. It all has to do with what you are typing in that search box on the internet. Could this information also track not only kids movements but their frequented visiting spots for marketers looking to brand to children? This would be a perfect way to turn a profit.

benefits

What are the benefits to being able to chip your child? Well, the upside is that besides tracking their movements, maybe the chip has been connected to figuring out any health problems. Parents would love knowing what is wrong with their child before going to the doctor’s office so the doctor’s job is that much easier.

HEALTH DETECTIONS: HOW A CHIP IN THE BODY COULD CHANGE MEDICAL HISTORY

Central Processing Unit

“Tracking your health.”


digital doctors

Understanding your health is crucial in being able to live a long health life. But as time progress, what will the standards for tracking health become? Will we start to see microchips implanted into the body that will be able to track with 99% accuracy a health problem is on its way before we get the sickness? Because think about it, a chip placed in the brain, which is the central nervous system of the body, so that it can detect cancer in its very beginning stages. This would mean that the disease wouldn’t stand a chance of growing, must less spreading throughout the body. And thus allowing people to live longer disease free until they pass away.

cost

As with any clinical trial, the cost associated with this type of development would be staggering. The initial cost would have to be raised by through public, but more so the private sector. And this sector could most likely be from already wealth individuals who have the ability to give $100 million, $500 million, or even $1 billion for research. Only downside for society is that these are the people who would be the beneficiaries first. But with them putting up so much wealth, why not. But with anything else in our society, the initial cost are always high before it plateaus and comes affordable for everyone.

socially responsible 

In developing something so ground breaking, we have to make sure that we are holding ourselves to a certain level of decor in dealing. Because having such information about another human being can be an upside when treating them. But the information about patients can also be used to the benefit of the doctor and/or hospital. Because with hundreds of patients, or even thousands of visits in a year at a hospital, medical reps looking to sell products could make a killing if they have information about a hospital and their job is to sell products and services. It now becomes a race for more and more information about another human being. So morals and ethics will come in to play eventually.

externalities

The good over the long haul could easily outweigh the bad. Because imagine what this will do for the productivity of society. People living longer because they don’t have diseases. We could work for longer periods of our lives and retire much much later on. And it could contribute to the overall growth of of our existence.

UPLOADING MEMORIES: WILL THERE BE A WAY TO REPLICATE PEOPLE’S EXISTENCE

Green Ram Card Collection

“Uploading Memory.”


saved data

A day will come where all of our memories will be able to be accessed and used to keep an aspect of us going throughout society. Meaning a Stephen Hawking brain could really benefit the world after he is dead with holding on to his intellect. That would mean technology to scale from the likes our planet has never seen. Accessing all the data of the mind of some of our smartest so that we can have an advantage as a nation. And with so much brain power, what could a nation do with such information for its infrastructure?

opportunities

A Henry Ford comes along and is born into this country. Or better yet a Steve Jobs is born and we want his mind to continue. Imagine if we could have kept everything that Jobs did and managed to keep Apple going the same as if he had never left. You’re talking technology rolling out year after year from the vault of Jobs. And since we have everything he wrote down, we could compile this information to build his ideas the same way he would have built them. The uncertainty of where a company is heading after someone as important as him dies wouldn’t be lingering over the heads of the organization’s leaders. But is there a more sinister aspect of the technology?

sick twisted system

Manipulation is the main reason why something like this will be halted for a very long time. You would need a large scale oversight into the matter because not everyone is born equal. Some people just have that thing others don’t. So can you imagine a mundane thinker accessing the data of a genius and building their own futures off the backs of someone else. Or better yet, our government laying claim to the mind of this person for their own benefit. That means your family member that died is now property of the government to be used however they please. And who is to also say that someone won’t try to kill you for your mind. Because you are now worth more dead than alive.

reality is reality

This will be something of the future, but in a different context. I don’t know hat the context will be, but the information of people will be left behind because we document so much today. And it will be for more research purposes if anything.

CODING: THE IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING HOW TO

abstract, business, code

“The need is now.”


programming

The weird writing behind the computer screen is what so many are too intimidated to try to figure out. There is actually big business in learning to code. The problem is that so many people don’t know how to do so. It’s not as easy as just go out and learn. You have to have the tenacity to stick it out over time. And when I say over time, I mean can you sit down and learn and work it out for years; that’s right years. Coding is constantly changing and you have to change with it. If not, you will be working for years just to know the basics. You will defeat the purpose of learning all that time. So you have just wasted maybe 3-5, 5-7, or even more years.

what’s it all for

Some people learn for fun, but those are the people that are very few and far between. The majority of people learn coding for some economic gain. And if you are learning for the economics, then you need to understand that the word computer programming is a broad term. You have to familiarize yourself with the terminology. Because just saying coding will only make you more confused until you breakdown where you want to aim at understanding in coding. Now me myself, I am very unfamiliar with coding. I have tried and given up numerous times over. Hopefully I will try at it again some day.

benefits

Learning how to code opens the door for all types of career advancements. You can either work within an organization or you can work for yourself from home. You also can broaden your horizons in being able to troubleshoot for your computer as well. Imagine having software problems you don’t have to to pay for, for expert opinion. You can just flip the coding and find out if there are any errors you can fix for yourself. Saves you time and money that you may not have in life. Other benefits is that if you are a parent with a child, you can now educate them. It’s an early stage of learning and a way for you to bond with your child.

STOLEN IDENTITY: THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE CRIMINAL

Rear View of a Silhouette Man in Window

“When data is no longer in your hands.”


taken information

For the longest, information has been used to people’s benefit. No matter if it’s organizations or for personal use. But what happens when that information gets into the wrong hands? When someone who is an opportunist seeking to take your personal data and create an entire alternate identity. And what’s sad is that there is nothing that can be done. If the person is not caught they will be able to run up a bill in your name. Unless the authorities capture them, they will continue to live as you. That will only become more of a problem the more tech creeps into our lives.

internet police

Are we going to see less police on the streets and more behind desk. I wrote something similar to this topic in the past where cops will become more desk duty. Because the violent crimes are becoming too risky. And the odds of getting caught are higher. So you will start to see more digital crimes because the anonymity on the internet gives you the ability to hide behind a fake profile. So now you can do as you please without much attaching you to your crimes. Now, there is a paper trail, but that trail is one long string to nowhere. So that means protecting yourself even more in the future.

getting better

So, when the technology increases, so will the capabilities of the criminal. Eventually, there will be a need for hand and thumb prints, then using alcohol to wipe down the print. But of course someone will figure out how to manipulate the machine used to do so. Then there will have to be even more measures for the these people so that others don’t follow suit. But is there ever a way of getting better so that criminals can’t penetrate. And the answer to that would be never. Because all security is created by humans, so of course another human will be able to work around the system.

punishments

The laws and the punishments for breaking those laws will of course be stiff. As a matter of fact, the laws may be so stiff that the punishment could be worse than the majority of the crimes in the future. Why, well because if you can steal an identity, you can implicate people in other crimes they know nothing about. So you might see digital crimes up there with murder, rape, and strong armed robbery.
