The Patent Of The Beast

And now for something completely different -- the patent for the "mark of the Beast."

Okay... the inventor doesn't call it that, and there's no way in heck anyone would do it, but he's proposing "invisible tattoos" that could be scanned at any checkout counter and would automatically deduct money from wherever.

(I love the X-Files citation in the patent application.)

(and no, I don't believe in the "Mark of the Beast" or in Revelations (which was a very controversial book. Many of the bishops who put together the collection of books that we now call the Bible argued AGAINST its being included.))

The funny thing is somehow or in someway. There does need to be developed a system which allows, for a safer way to transfer funds than exist today.

Any suggestions??

Yes but solution depends on the paranoia level.


Your personal 'Mark of The Beast' is your eye. Iris recognition is based on the most mathematically unique biometric the iris of the eye. The human iris is absolutely unique, even between twins or an individual's right and left eyes. That is why all urban legends about to-be-implanted-soon chips make no big sense. Iris can be scanned even remotely with absolute accuracy. This technology is already used for example on the airports.
Money are on you account, 'credit-card' is always with you. No PIN to remember. But bank should be credible.

Dr. John Daugman, Ph.D. is the inventor of the iris recognition process and his eyes



Electronic pouch - your money are stored as a ciphered code in the chip and you can anonymously transfer to other user of compatible device. Not very anonymous but ready to be used is Visa Cash


-- no -- solution -- or Liberty Dollars or piece of gold

There isn't enough Gold in the world to be used as an effective means of currency.

And not enough REAL assets to cover all printed money

Actually I do have a pet theory on returning to the gold standard. That is there is enough Gold in the solar system (Asteroids, Mars to mention a few) to keep us on the gold standard for quite some time. Not to mention Platinum, Silver as well as other precious metals. All we have to do is establish a viable and
reliable means to access, it and bring it to Earth.

Once it was established then modest estimates of how much is actually out there (in the solar system) could be applied in relation to net worth. (Again that is in relation to realistic estimates based on our technology to access it).

One problem that does exist is our proclivity to wage war against each other. The type of vessels that would be needed most certainly would run on Nuclear power (especially in the beginning). Imagine some terrorist getting a hold of one of those?

If it were possible the abundance of mineral wealth would be astronomical.

What are your thoughts?

People are losing faith in the fiat money system - money that is backed by 'nothing' rather than the age-old standard of gold.

The U.S. government and the private debt of its citizens will never be paid off. The dollar will continue to lose value - even if the treasury tries to impliment deflationary measures, and it is inevitable that the U.S., like most Weastern nations, will go the way of Argentina.

How long did you expect this system to last? Until a can of Coke cost $80.00?

Savonarola Argentina went the way it did because it privatized everything except the Military and Government agencies from the judicial on up.

That was a big mistake as private industry reacts to losses by hiding their losses in a never-ending hope that somehow some way something will workout. And when that does not happen well, we all know about Enron.

A can of coke for $80 is stretch water, high fructose
Corn syrup, caffeine, coloring and tin (as well as other ingredients) are in abundance. The implication that "the public trust" was meant as the new standard (mentioned in the Nixon days) is misinformation.

In support to your suggestion would point out that in relation to mineral wealth is general we are starting to loose ground. And this is more due to the irresponsibility of certain nations (USSR and Communist China).

Fact of the matter is it is too expensive, to build a home with a steel frame. Cars are mostly tin now and plastics are slowly but surely replacing every product that used to be made of glass and metals. At our current rate of consumption its likely that by the year 2050 your will see the first plastic car in the United States (actually you can by one like that in Russia and it has a porcelain engine).

We are running out of recources Savronela but all hope is not lost. We just need to get our act together and grow up (as a world society).

What are your thoughts?
