I have zero issue with this. Even though my life and spirituality has a heavy focus on following the natural order of existence, I see this as a good thing.
No matter your path, if you believe we are creations, you probably believe we are created in a creator's image. If so, we are creators ourselves and are meant to evolve and have a say in our growth as a species. Augmenting our physicality with our own science is an expected bridge we will cross sooner or later.
Conspiracies about chips and governments and what-not are not an issue with the technology and does not make the concept itself bad or evil. If new science comes out and our thoughts are of spying and government control, that's a different issue and has nothing to do with science. That has to do with society and government which we need to fix. Until we do, we will be afraid of every new breakthrough in technology and science we make.
I even just came up with a slogan for them just now: "Can't give Big Brother the slip, may as well just get the chip!"
Yeah well YOU SUCK and you can shuv your slogan right up you stupid A$$!!!!!
Thats the way
This was exactly the point in my post. "Hey don't take the chip, but if you want to see a doctor or visit an emergency room, well then, stick out your hand." It could spread to other things as well, like withdrawing cash at a bank. The trip down the rabbit hole started a long time ago. We're just now seeing the sci-fi aspects we read about or saw in a movie. But it's happening. ~ Pablo Picasso: 'Everything you can imagine is real.'

The issue that deeply concerns me is...over time as this technology is tested and developed...will (we the people) still have a choice to be chipped or not?
If (we the people) do have a choice...will TPTB make it next to impossible to survive without being chipped. In other words...there will be a guise of having a choice...but by the way chipping may be implemented over time... perhaps people will not be able to purchase things; won't be able to do banking etc. unless they are chipped.
Perhaps TPTB may zero in on the people on SS and Veteran benefits etc. ...test the retired and disabled...either be chipped or you won't get your money.
Is this really going to be societies future?

The mark of the beast is: by thought/forhead, or deed/hand, you sin, or fall into lower beast mind. Not Higher Angel Mind. Which is the whole test of earth to become like Christ or Christed. As Paul said that the Christ be formed within us.
