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 the pit.

"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 months.

"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)." (Revelation 9:1-11) [Please see Appendix 1 for a more intelligible translation of these verses from the Concordant Literal Translation of the New Testament.]

There's 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.


The cyborg soldier

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.

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 transformation of the soldier into a cyborg, a part of a weapon system.

  • The insanity of total war. The most effective nanoweapons can no more be used (except by the insane, and eventually they will get such weapons) than can nuclear or biological weapons.

  • The shift in casualties from soldiers to civilians.

  • 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.

  • Offense has the advantage over defense.

  • The danger of nanowar could lead to One World Government; even a horribly effective one.

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.

Insect warriors

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:

  • Tiny spies everywhere, even in the form of mists or clouds.

  • Drug and DNA analysis could be performed on people without their knowledge just as the passed by.

  • Tiny machines could measure bioresponses and become effective truth machines.

  • New nano technologies could produce new ways of doing drugs or committing murder that remain ahead of the police (offense trumps defense).

  • There will probably be new ways to harm the environment using nanotech to extract valuable elements from the land, sea, and even air.

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!

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."
