The transformation of the soldier into a cyborg, a part of a weapon system
The danger that nanotechnology may ultimately pose
for us all can be gleaned from a cryptic passage of Scripture
from Revelation 9:1-11:
"And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star
from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key
of the bottomless pit was given to him.
"And he opened the bottomless pit; and smoke
went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace;
and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of
"And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon
the earth; and power was given them as the scorpions
of the earth have power.
"And they were told that they should not hurt
the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any
tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God
on their foreheads.
"And they were not permitted to kill anyone,
but to torment for five months; and their torment was
like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man.
"And in those days men will seek death and
will not find it; and they will long to die and death
flees from them.
"And the appearance of the locusts was like
horses prepared for battle; and on their heads, as it
were, crowns like gold, and their faces were like the
faces of men.
"And they had hair like the hair of women,
and their teeth were like the teeth of lions.
"And they had breastplates like breastplates
of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound
of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle.
"And they have tails like scorpions, and stings;
and in their tails is their power to hurt men for five
"They have as king over them, the angel of
the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and
in the Greek he has the name Apollyon (i.e., Apollos)."

an unprecedented multidisciplinary convergence of scientists
dedicated to the study of a world so small, we can't see it
-- even with a light microscope. That world is the field of
nanotechnology, the realm of atoms and nanostructures.
In order to understand the unusual world of nanotechnology,
we need to get an idea of the units of measure involved. A centimeter
is one-hundredth of a meter, a millimeter is one-thousandth
of a meter, and a micrometer is one-millionth of a meter, but
all of these are still huge compared to the nanoscale. A nanometer
(nm) is one-billionth of a meter, smaller than the wavelength
of visible light and a hundred-thousandth the width of a human
hair [source: Berkeley Lab].
As small as a nanometer is, it's still large compared to the
atomic scale. An atom has a diameter of about 0.1 nm. An atom's
nucleus is much smaller -- about 0.00001 nm. Atoms are the building
blocks for all matter in our universe. You and everything around
you are made of atoms. Nature has perfected the science of manufacturing
matter molecularly. For instance, our bodies are assembled in
a specific manner from millions of living cells. Cells are nature's
nanomachines. At the atomic scale, elements are at their most
basic level. On the nanoscale, we can potentially put these
atoms together to make almost anything.

Nanotechnology is part of the wave of new technoscientific
discovery that is washing over the beginning of the Twenty-First
Century, and it is clearly an integral part of the contemporary
Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA many military commentators
have discussed in the past few years.
The cyborg soldier
In one sense this isn't new, as the pseudo-nano war technologies
of biochem war and nuclear war are also based on "getting small"
and so is the electronic battlefield. All of these are producing
the cyborg soldier and they have also produced the fundamental
contradictions that frame postmodern war. As a result, nanotechnology
enjoys some of the same paradoxes that CBN (chemical/biological/nuclear)
has; and some of the ironies and illusions of information war
specifically and computer war in general.
Among the most salient are:
The expansion of the territory of the battle (space).
Now it isn't just World War, it is war at the bottom of
the oceans, war in the upper atmosphere and in space, it
is also war at the microlevel. As the high ground (space)
and the deep sea (for boomer subs and secret passage) confer
great military advantages. He who controls the micro world
controls the normal world.
Now, all things being equal the army that effectively integrates
the new weapon(s) into their battle system will win. This is
why Germans won the first half of World War II. They didn't
spread their tanks out, they made Panzer armies. They didn't
use the best part of their air force for strategic bombing,
they used it to support the ground armies. So with tanks, trucks,
radios and Stukas they invented Blitzkrieg.
In terms of actual nanotech, the most interesting weapons proposed
are the insect warriors. Roboroach is clearly the grandfather
of such weapons eventually. And note in the RAND report that
the weapons won't just be aimed at people. A spider that spins
conductive webs would be great to "bug" computers. In fact,
most nanoweapons I've seen proposed, microbots of different
types, are really aimed at machines more than humans, after
all, and folks have been working on them for some time.
In the far future, if war survives, one could imagine a complex
nanowar fought entirely on that level by beautifully sophisticated
machines, capable of everything current human-machine weapon
systems are, but in the interim we can expect that most effective
nanomachines will be surveillance or targeting devices, not
weapon platforms. Many will be inert, waiting for something
to come to them, not mobile. And that small, but not nano, machines
will become more common and some of these will have kill potential
and many will be tele-operated.
Postmodern War is starting to blur the line between business
competition, and politics/war and crime, and vice-versa. Nano-surveillence
technologies and nano-sabatoge can easily be deployed between
companies as well as between political institutions.
The dark side of nano isn't just from crime, it also includes
the danger of over-effective government and other institutions
using nanotechnology to eliminate the last vestiges of privacy
in our society in their zealous "wars" on crime and drugs. These
large irresponsible institutions will have the best nanotechnology.
With nanotechnology one can imagine:
At a minimum we can expect traditional
surveillance will increase drastically; prisoners and parolees
will be monitored continuously; homes will be turned into effective
prisons; mind and emotion reading will improve tremendously;
undetectable assassination will become feasible.
God bless you all!
IN ADDITION, WE URGE YOU TO DOWNLOAD THE NEW ANTIPAS PAPERS,
PRINT THEM OUT YOURSELF, AND STUDY THEM CAREFULLY; SHARE THEM
WITH YOUR FRIENDS.
FINALLY, WE URGE YOU TO DOWNLOAD AND PRINT OUT THE FLYER
WE SENT TO YOU RECENTLY.
Then make copies and take these copies out to the campuses
where you live; pass them out; OR if that seems
too "daring" for you right now, post them on telephone
poles, the sides of buildings, on campus bulletin boards; post
them in union halls, in the neighborhoods of the poor and downtrodden,
near employment offices, wherever you can.
Once again, we URGE you to read (or re-read):
Revelation 9:1-11 is rendered more intelligible in the Concordant
Literal Translation of the New Testament:
"And the fifth messenger trumpets. And I perceived a
star fallen into earth. And to him [the star or fallen angel]
was given the key of the well of SUBMERGED CHAOS. And
he opens the well of the submerged chaos, and fumes ascend
out of the well as the smoke of a large furnace, and the sound
and the air are darkened by the fumes of the well. And out
of the fumes came out locusts into the earth, and license
was granted them as the scorpions of the earth have license.
And it was declared to them that they should not be injuring
the grass of the earth, not any green thing, nor any tree,
except those of mankind who have not the seal of God on their
foreheads. And it was granted to them, not that they should
be killing them, but that they shall be tormented five months;
and their torment is as the torment of a scorpion, whenever
he should be striking a man. And in those days men will be
seeking death, AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL BE FINDING
IT. And they will be yearning to die, and death is fleeing
from them. And the likeness of the locusts are like horses
ready for battle, and on their heads are as it were wreaths
like gold, and their faces are as it were human faces. And
they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth are as
if they were lions. And they had cuirasses [body armor], as
it were cuirasses of iron, and the sound of their wings is
as the sound of many chariot horses racing into battle. And
they have tails like scorpions, and stings, and their license
is to injure mankind five months with their tails. They have
a king over them - the messenger of the submerged chaos. His
Hebrew name is Abaddon, and in Greek he has the name
Apollyon (i.e., Apollos)."
We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the
eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR
HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN"
WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank"
insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned
- a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY
trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN
rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners
in the abject poverty that American corporations have
imposed on the peoples and nations the American military
machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE
THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME
OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles,
