Future Tech Possible Right Now
What You Don't Know Can Definitely Help or Hurt You
What we know and what is held in secret are two different things. That which the civilian society has access to is often technologically behind what is top secret by at least 30 years and in some cases, by a century. This same division between the powerful and the powerless is the formula that has been used throughout history in the conquest of one society over another. If numbers or intelligence did not win the war, then it was a difference in technology that won the day. We are learning about electromagnetic pulse, sound and microwave weapons, but there are far more that we have only glimmers of or about which we are totally ignorant. There are a large array of new technology and weapons out there and with a little knowing, anyone of us could likely accurately describe the targeted secret super technology or weapon right on the head. Here are a few samples of such possible technologies and weapons based on what we know is possible from commonly available referenced material.
1. A directed EMP weapon to target selected electronic locations.
2. A multi-gigawatt laser assembly capable of generating anti-matter from the quantum vacuum.
3. A cloaking invisibility device, capable of hiding people, groups, buildings, aircraft or whole ships.
4. Artificial intelligence (AI) robots that can out think and out strategize human beings, are stronger than most animals and can run as fast as a car. Some are built to fly or swim.
5. Remotely fuelled vehicles that can travel easily at mach 10 or faster.
6. A wireless power grid hardened against EMP.
7. Thought controlled devices and devices that can manipulate thought.
8. Live video streaming full colour transmission holography.
9. The military's space plane, a true multi-use escape and re-entry vehicle.
10. Nanotechnology capable of assembling anything atom by atom up to large visible structures.
11. Programmable implantable RFID chip sets.
12. Cybernetic organisms, a fusion of machine and biology
13. Made to order “chimera” combined DNA animal to animal or animal to human crosses
Let us look at each one in turn.
A directed Electromagnetic pulse weapon already exists that is superior to the dumb EMP device that takes everything in its range down. The directed weapon can select a precise target and only shut down the electronics of the target with no harm to anything out of the focused beam. In addition, this device does not require the copious amounts of power to be effective as it can send a focused beam of EMP much as a laser sends a focused beam of light. A rather light duty and easily transported weapon is capable of taking down no hardened jets or stopping selected vehicles. In addition, it can be used repeatedly without having to replace parts. An extension of this device is an electromagnetic swamping energy source that cancels electrical circuit fields by phased induction rendering the affected circuit seemingly dead. Despite having a good battery, the device under such influence will behave as if the battery is dead of the plug has been pulled out. When the electromagnetic swamping field is shut off, power is restored to the target provided the circuit has not been burned out.
There already exists extreme high intensity lasers that are in use at the Lawrence Livermore Research facility for the first fusion reactor. But such lasers are also installed on military jets for the purpose of destroying incoming missiles in flight. One scientific paper suggests that a sufficient number of these lasers focused onto a very tiny point in space (the quantum level) can drive virtual particle pairs apart and that the anti-matter part can then be collected and held in a magnetic bottle for later use. Just one of these lasers is powerful enough to cut through a twelve foot wall of stainless steel in an instant. The only tricky part is hitting the fast moving missile while the missile and laser or on separate flight paths.
A lot of buzz exists concerning an invisibility or cloaking device. Many heard of these ideas on Star Trek in the 70's and later. Invisibility came to the fore again in the movie lore of Predator and Harry Potter. The military has certainly been interested since the 1940s with the Philadelphia Experiment and Project Montauk. The original ideas begin with camouflage and radar invisibility and have evolved to visible ligh invisibility. There are plenty of movies and videos concerning these possibilities, but almost none of them can be verified with any reasonable assurance. Perhaps invisibility devices exist, but we do know how to make something radar invisible.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been one of the holy grails of robotics for as long as they have been in development. Among the first
applications for AI were in deep space missions where the velocity of light limited communication with robotic probes. These probes were given software to help them make their own decisions in absence of human input that was infrequent and slow at best. This line of thinking is still under development and now covers robotics on earth, such is drone applications and walking machines that have to make instantaneous decisions in the field without human input. “Without human input” is somewhat a misnomer, for someone had to write a perfect the code for all of these robots to begin with. Despite what we have been told about robots not harming people, we have to now answer the question of hunter robots, smart bombs and drones made for the theatre of war. Robots do what they are told, even and especially if they serve the military.
The military has a research and development (R&D) budget that is part of the much larger one used for foreign policy enforcement. This is sometimes referred to as the black budget because it covers anything top secret. There are sightings that now form common experience that cannot be explained with reference to known technology. These are top secret, high speed jets, rockets, saucer technology, lights, power transmission, mind control technology and the like. There are hints that remote fuelled craft are now in operation travelling at extreme speed operating in the atmosphere and low earth orbit. Some people even suggest that a covert lunar and planetary colonization is well underway, suggesting that people being abducted and disappeared are being taken off planet for work projects.

Most of us in the developed world is already using wireless technology via cell phones and WiFi computer networks. There are patents in the US and international archives covering a far more vast wireless network based on the technology of Tesla such as HAARP, GWEN and some projects related to DARPA. Some of these technologies are able to disable others with Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) while remaining intact themselves. They can do a wide range of other applications in addition such as blocking attacking missiles, transmit to depths under water or map the interior of the earth, Some suggest that they can manipulate thoughts by resonating with the Schumann cavity and natural human frequencies.
Another holy grail of technology is to interface human and machine via thought only. A person in such a relation would need only think to get a machine extension to respond in the desired fashion. Some of this us true in a limited extent with modern prosthetic limbs. But there are other developments such as a mind reading machine that can now distinguish words from a brain to machine interface when a person merely thinks them. If not already a fact, the day is close at hand where not only can we command machines by thought, but security surveillance can read our thoughts.
Developments in Japan and the UK already tell us that live streaming, full colour transmission holography is a fact. The information is already available via news releases and videos of such events. This type of video transmission can be used for any purpose, some of which many say, are for sinister purposes in part of the “strong delusion” as a fulfillment of ancient prophecies. In the theatre of war, such a device can promote the idea of an invasion where there are no actual troops on the ground or in the air. Coupled with drones, this could be a show that causes whole peoples to surrender without risking a single attacking soldier or pilot. This could be a psychological warfare operation unlike anything yet seen.
The USAF has a working space plane as part of their arsenal. This plane according to some, has been in test for over a year and was in place before the shuttle programme was decommissioned. This is a true space plane that can launch itself into near earth orbit without the aid of a rocket, using a combination of on board jet and rocket technology. Further, it can remain in orbit for sustained periods and presumably re-enter anywhere the pilot wishes and land in any military base. No information exists as to whether or not it can dock with theInternational Space Station (ISS) that for public consumption, now relies totally on the Russian space program. It is also unknown if it carries any payloads.
Nanotechnology has been in development for a long time and has numerous patents and applications. One idea suggests that it can now build structures on the microscopic scale after collecting raw materials available around it. This technology can be used for medical applications, for making micro machines, or as in one described case in sci-fi, quickly assemble radioactive materials together to make a critical mass bomb for a small nuclear explosion. These ideas are already in operation or are now in the realm of possibility. Like any other technology, it can be used for benefit or for sinister purposes.
Over the last decade and increasingly in the contemporary period, the idea of an implantable computer chip within a human host, has been gaining a lot of ground. Some people have already had a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip implanted. For now, the chip acts as a GPS locator that can tell where the implantee is within a square meter anywhere on earth. Not so distant future applications include a persons medical record along with an electronic banking account. Some people readily accept them including the scientist who recently came down with a computer virus according to one report. Others dread the implementation of the technology, suggesting that these things can be made to kill anyone who is a dissident in an authoritarian society. Still others refer to the chip as the “mark of the beast” that will be a one way ticket to hell if you accept one. Whatever way this device goes, the fact of the matter is that we are seeing an increasing trend to the creation of a true cyborg that is part living organism and part machine. An electronic mind activated prosthetic are just one step in this direction. We accept this readily, so, why not a chip as long as it can be verified that it will not be used for sinister purposes. As for the sinister, that has long been a reality without the RFID chip. Today, many of us carry driver's ID and credit cards that have an RFID chip. Most people think nothing of it, accepting it as part of today's technology. The chip set of tomorrow will likely be nanotechnology manufactured inside us without having to surgically get an implant and they will be programmable, receiving updates, just as today's cell phones.
The Cybernetic organism has been a developing reality for decades. It began with something simple, yet remarkable as artificial joints made of stainless steel and heart valves. It has since expanded to prosthetic devices controlled by the mind and mind computer interfaces implanted into a persons arm. There is work going on to create an artificial eye and ear to give sight to the blind and sound to the deaf. Preliminary trials have been successful. As we include more and more technology into our bodies, we will change into what has been called cyborgs. Eventually, with extrapolation of knowing how to do it, our bodies will become completely “machined”. The brain will slowly be replaced after being augmented with a quantum computer. Our eyes will be far more capable of seeing far more wavelengths at any time of day including pitch dark. Our limbs could well be replaced by something more efficient. Eventually, we will not rely on food and water, but only energy that can be tapped directly from space. We will also be able to live as easily in a hard vacuum as in the atmosphere. Robots of all kinds exist, and they do not follow the three laws of robotics penned by Isaac Asimov, so much as what they are programmed to do including in a theatre of war. Robots are made to serve, entertain, police, do surveillance and to function as a soldier of fortune in war. They can run, shoot, fly, swim and do most anything else plus some antics people cannot do. Robots have already been to Mars and the gas giant planets and human being are still debating if people should go there. They have bored their way to the bottom of the Antarctic ice shelf to reach a lake under the miles of ice. Robots and people are separate entities today, but at some point, there will be a fusion for good or ill.
The most famous recombined DNA animal today, is the spider goat. The milk of such recombined DNA animals, sometimes called chimeras after the mythical beasts of ancient cultures, contains the spider silk protein placed there by combining goat and spider genes. Spider silk is strong, so it has a lot of interesting uses, but spiders do not produce enough for use. Spider goats, however produce sufficient milk with enough of the protein to be of use for various applications. Strong, light, biodegradable thread is ideal for surgical applications among many other situations. But spider goats are not alone. There are experiments underway to create a host of “useful” chimeras. The mind boggles with the ramifications of the the permutations and combinations of possibilities. No longer do we need to rely in cross breeding such as for lions and tigers to create a liger. There is even a plan to revive the long extinct Mammoth from frozen mammoth DNA that is at least 13,000 years old. This will likely be done via a chimera recombination process where elephants will play the host. Many animals are being recombined with human DNA to produce organs suitable for direct animal to human transplantation. The idea of eating an animal will take on a whole new significance. Some success in this field has already been achieved. The animal selected for human DNA is the pig. Successful pig – human DNA grafts have already been done and there are plans to use pig liver transplants to human beings. The making of chimeras has already caused an ethical firestorm among many communities of various persuasions.
Recently, one of the holy grails of computing was achieved with the development of a quantum computer gate that allows binary computations to be done with atoms. This is as small as it gets as far as compact computers are concerned. A typical computer that most of us use, can now be made that is smaller than the head of a pin and be far more powerful. Power use in these machines is minuscule and the signal to and from them has to be amplified so we can program and see results. A quantum computer built form atom gates to the size of a typical tablet today would be the most powerful computer in the world, exceeding the speed, bandwidth and capacity of the totality of what exists today. That computer is not far off as they can be built using nanotechnology and will likely be used as a central hub for every conceivable application that exists now, plus others yet to be written. Such a computer can either liberate humanity into a utopia of freedom of expression or creation, of bind them to a dystopia outstripping every nightmare that has bobbed up in the creative minds of writers and dictators. The choices are ours and it is best not to face them in ignorance!
