Yet there is another, more insidious reason why the ancient religions, which taught fear of God, have morphed into modern religions and spiritual practices that teach surrender or love of God. The reason concerns free will. If that deeply human element can be won over, if the heart and ability to choose can be wholly offered to “the divine,” those on the receiving end no longer have to siphon humans for their energy, they can simply assimilate us. We become one with their system, with their collective consciousness. Our personal energy signature – the soul or ego, individual self– that which makes us creative, original, reasoned, deliberate beings of action – that is taken from us. Or more precisely, we give it away.
We give ourselves to “the divine,” and in so doing, align our personal frequency with those who have fed on humans since the dawn of history. We become entrained with them, like a tuning fork that hums the pitch of the humming forks around it or a soldier that marches in step with his army. As in the military, the surrender of personal choice results in a strengthening of the collective. Soldiers fall out of step when they cross a bridge, because the power of marching in unison is great enough that it could break the structure. Assimilation strengthens the collective that is the gods. If the “Star Trek” image of The Borg comes to mind, the parallel is not inappropriate. The Borg in the sci-fi TV series were a civilization of beings half biological and half cyber. Like a hive, they were ruled by a central queen, whose will ran the collective. They thrived by discovering new planets and assimilating their inhabitants. Assimilation was accomplished by mind-controlling a person and then inserting, in place of the individual’s mind, the mind of The Borg. The victim’s will became the will of The Borg, his actions entrained, like an ant’s, to work for the collective’s purpose.
Cosmic consciousness is not what we are told: a state where the individual mind merges with its own interior pure consciousness. Cosmic consciousness (“enlightenment” or “Brahman”) is a fusing of one’s personal self with the force that has hijacked the universe.
A loving and unlimited creator of individual awareness would not create life forms only to destroy them. That is the act of a farmer, not of an artist or innovator. Creative people don’t make things in order to feed off their creations. They make things to express what’s inside them: the joy or beauty or humor or wisdom. We know this from our own life experience.
Happy people create good things around them, and cherish and take care of those things. They don’t decide to blow them up or devour them. If we as humans naturally behave like that, how could the Infinite Being from whose cloth we were cut think and behave like a savage? How could It be unfeeling or uncaring, when we by nature are feeling and caring? How could the children be greater in character than their own Creator? It’s not a very reasonable premise.

Computer chips embedded in your head by 2020: firm

Lucky for you, there's a Montreal research company called 5Deka Inc. that forecasts -- in striking detail -- some of the things we might expect to happen in the coming decades.
Much of it is good, if a little unsettling. For example, 5Deka predicts that within the next decade, we'll see widespread use of communications technology that is "embedded" right in our bodies, and gadgets that immediately identify us to businesses as we arrive.
About 20 years down the road, expect DNA-scanning technology that will almost eliminate fatal genetic diseases in newborns in the industrialized world. As well, athletes, artists, scientists and other gifted individuals will find a new revenue stream by selling their sperm and eggs to aspiring parents.
Many of these predictions are found on the firm's website, www.5deka.com.
If you're seeking specific details and a chance to ask questions, the company is giving a presentation in Montreal on June 14. That's the group's first conference open to the public. Until now, its presentations have been private affairs. At $275 a head, 5Deka CEO and co-founder Rejean Bourgault recognizes the presentation is not geared toward the average person.
"I would say a lot (of the expected audience) are middle management to leaders of different large companies across all company types," he says.
Bourgault is a technology professional who spent more than 20 years at Nortel Networks Corp. and continues as a vice-president with Avaya Inc., which bought part of Nortel after it went into bankruptcy protection in 2009.
Bourgault says business leaders want to hear about the future so they can adapt to the realities created by changing technology and attitudes.
For example, dramatic changes are expected in the way people use mobile communications as early as 2020. By this time, devices invisibly implanted behind one's ear are expected to replace Bluetooth headsets for hands-free communications, 5Deka says.
As well, that era's smartphones are expected to identify users and their shopping profiles to businesses the minute they walk through the door.
Bourgault expects people will have control over such functions, being able to turn them on or off.
Privacy-related qualms many of us have about such things don't resonate with many of the young adults who will, at that time, have grown up in the era of social networks, he says.
