The determined ‘advances’ that society makes always come cloaked in the lie of inevitability. What is ‘inevitability’? It is an outcome that is sure to happen, one that cannot be avoided, evaded or escaped (dictionary.com). Like Judgment Day. Not like death and taxes, because death is not inevitable, not for everyone, and taxes have been proven by many to be as un-inevitable as death.
The purveyors of the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) want you to believe that it is inevitable in the sense of Judgment Day. What is the 4th Industrial Revolution? Well, it is what I fondly refer to as the age when man took leave of his senses completely. Others describe it as: “ongoing automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices, using modern smart technology.” (Source: Wikipedia) Or as techradar.com benignly explains it, “This primarily focuses on the use of large-scale M2M [i.e. Machine to Machine] and Internet of Things (IoT) deployments to provide the likes of increased automation, improved communication and monitoring, as well as smart machines that can analyse and diagnose issues without the need for human intervention.” Allow me to translate that for you from propagandese into English: These Industry 4.0 or 4IR or i4.0 proponents are saying that they are working towards a world that is primarily dependent on digital technologies, interfaced with machines, instead of it being dependent on people. In other words, they are rendering human beings redundant in the process of… everything. The Internet of Things goes beyond the production process to everyday life and living as they plan to fully integrate data, computing and everyday devices like your refrigerator, microwave, car, lights, security system, allowing them to communicate with something somewhere. Remember communication is two-way. It is already in progress. Has been for some time. And they (the proponents of i4.0) want you to be very excited about the possibilities.
Let’s tackle the issue of the word ‘revolution’ in 4th Industrial Revolution because it is central to the head games being played with you and I. The first three industrial ‘revolutions’ were: the shift from production by hand to mechanization by steam or water power (so, I guess hand-powered production was the zero revolution), then there was a shift to mass production, here electricity was the champion, then there was automation, computers were introduced along with robotic arms and other gizmos. Now it’s IoT and even the convergence between man and machine as the next evolution of man. (Excuse me for a moment while I roll my eyes and drum my fingers on the table in irritation). Okay, I’m back. This is what they call ‘inevitable’. Utterly and completely ignoring the deliberate choices that have been made by man over time to carefully implement all of these so-called ‘revolutions’. A revolution is an overthrow of the ‘old’ and replacement with the ‘new’. Usually pegged as a good thing in technology terms, but not always in political terms e.g. Mali. But, if you have been paying attention over the years, you will quickly see that it is not so much a ‘revolution’ as it is a deliberate, meticulously planned, strategically well-funded strategy which is being implemented step by step and with a clear end in mind. So, again, it is not so much ‘inevitable’ as it is premeditated. ‘Inevitable’ would mean that the creators of new technologies or systems or policies absolutely cannot stop or help themselves but to just sit and create them. That it is out of their hands and that it could even happen without them.
The other day, I watched a documentary where the ‘experts’ speaking swore that we have absolutely no choice but to embrace robotics and AI as our future. That it is the inevitable next step in human evolution. Therefore we just have to do it. Now! Even if machines are eventually able to evolve beyond our own understanding and to lock us out of their interactions. Let me ask you: Who designed the programs? Who designed and built the machines? Can they run without electricity? Is there no ‘off’ switch? So what is inevitable about their eventual domination in man’s journey on this planet, except that man has made up his mind to follow through on his selfish interests yet again? But because man decided to board the Artificial Inevitability (that’s my name for AI) rollercoaster ages ago and to stay on it and has also decided that it is the only path to follow, here we are.
Yes, modern technology has its benefits. But when this same technology is used to walk many out of gainful employment, condition man into linear thinking, convince people to stop learning and using their mental and physical skills and to defer instead to computer programs, robots and other machines, then I say, con game! Look, don’t breathe a sigh of relief that you were not made redundant during the last restructuring program. Due to this focused path that they have set their minds to, you need to be prepared for it to go in any direction, whether you ‘upskill’ or not. Don’t buy the hype that you have to revise your skillset in order to remain relevant in the rapidly transforming technology environment and the ‘inevitable’ 4th Industrial revolution. Stop and think first about where all this is going. Consider and reflect and understand where the global herd is being driven to.
On Friday, 28th August 2020, Elon Musk unveiled, through his startup, Neuralink, technology to build a digital link between brains and computers. This was demonstrated using a device implanted into a pig’s brain that showed its brain activity through a wireless link. Musk and his company have been working towards an implantable device for humans that he likens to a ‘fitbit for your brain’, which would come in the form of an implant that would fit in a cavity of the human skull, with over 1000 electrode ‘threads’ piercing the outer layer of the brain to form a link to a computer.
As disgusting as all this sounds to me, I know that there are those who, hypnotized by sci-fi comics, cartoons and movies are thinking to themselves, “Cool! I wanna try.” Because the idea of escaping death through the healing some scientists believe these devices will bring about or being able to control machines or equipment using your brain and this device overshadow its greater implications. They believe that these are ‘advancements’. Musk’s efforts are not ‘revolutionary’ nor are they pioneering as it were. Scientists have long been trying to link man and machine in order to ‘enhance’ him in some way. It’s a mystery to me that this amazing body that self-heals and rejuvenates, that withstands some of the most toxic environments and food that man has created, that reproduces according to kind, that man has been hopelessly unable to replicate, science believes needs ‘improving’ with weird devices that will have equally strange side effects.
What some of them fail to realize is that they are playing right into the hands of Scripture and the fulfillment of prophecy, by their choices. The issue of choice is critical here, because, though the end will come as prophesied, each one needs to choose which side of the divide to stand on. The book of Daniel Chapter 2 talks of the kingdom of the ten toes of iron mingled with clay. This is the final kingdom of men. See what the scripture says “As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.” Daniel 2:43-45. NKJV.
But what is the meaning of this mingling of iron and clay? Simply put, the clay is man, the iron is technology and the ten toes are the ten super-nations that are being put together by the new world order agenda of the globalists, in preparation for the rule of the Anti-Christ or the Beast. And also, this age of the mingling of the clay and iron, speaks of the age where the human mind will be highly and viciously targeted in order to create an unholy dependence of man on artificial intelligence. It is a direct attack on man who is the image of God and thus a direct attack on God the Creator. It is a direct pointer to the reality many hyper excited scientists are pushing towards i.e. a time when machine and flesh will be commingled to create a new race, but they will not mix. This kingdom’s ultimate demise and destruction will come via the rock cut out without hands which is the Kingdom of Christ that will come on the earth. Many people don’t like to hear it, because they think that they are making choices independent of a grand plan and purpose. But the truth is, there is nothing on this earth that is de-linked from eternal realities and that is what each one must remember. The day man decided to uncouple his earthly reality from spiritual matters was the day he embraced his doom. But that can be remedied.
A culture of inevitability that builds in a determined and focused manner towards its own destruction is not only dangerous, but it is just dumb. As in stupid. And those scientific geniuses and financial giants who contribute towards the ‘success’ of Artificial Inevitability have willingly joined themselves to a disaster-in-waiting. Yes, there are those driven by forces of darkness towards the building of this co-mingled abomination but that is all connected to the grand end of the story, and they don’t win.
The claim of inevitability tries to take away your choice about what to do as well, as your feeling of control in the direction of a matter. As someone said to me the other day, “But guess what? Everyone is doing it, therefore we have no choice but to join them.” What they haven’t realized is that that is the kind of mindset that will guarantee that you will take the name, the number or the mark of the beast. You are not an unthinking mindless prisoner!
The claim of inevitability only creates a necessary divide. Those who will stand for what is right and those who will succumb, sell-out even their own family members in a timid act of utter submission to the most wicked acts ever known to man. It doesn’t mean you should be either their willing or unwitting slave and be complicit in their wicked undertakings. It means you should wise up, study what is happening and build an effective and powerful counter to what they are doing, that will allow those who are of like mind to be able to successfully navigate their way through the troubled waters that are coming.
