The conclusion to this detailed explanation of the Internet of
Bodies (IoB) correctly states,
"Be warned that this technology may make your
life easier in the short term, but its long-term
purpose is to make you a dehumanized slave."
The Internet of Bodies (IoB) and Hacking Your DNA
The age of the Internet of Things (IoT), and soon to follow the
Internet of Bodies (IoB), is now upon us.
RAND Corporation, the think tank behind some of the world's
most influential and
frightening ideas and technologies, has released a report titled
'The Internet of Bodies
- Opportunities, Risks, and Governance.'
You should be wary
of any reports issued by the RAND Corporation.
Alex Abella, author
of Soldiers of Reason - The RAND Corporation and the Rise of
American Empire, explains why:
RAND was, and is, the essential

been at the heart of that interweaving of Pentagon concupiscence
and financial rapacity that President Eisenhower aimed to call
the military-industrial-legislative complex.

understanding, there is much cause for alarm with the issuance of
this new report.
What is the Internet of Bodies (IoB)?
RAND defines the IoB as,
"a growing industry of devices
that monitor the human body, collect health and other personal
information, and transmit that data over the Internet."
order to qualify as an IoB device, the technology must:
An IoB device must

Hollywood has presented over the years in dystopian sci-fi fantasies

overlords of science, health, finance, and Big Tech, desire humanity
to go from wearable devices to devices embedded
within our bodies.

Needs Advanced Technologies for Peak Usefulness
If you're wondering
what will power all of this forthcoming technology, the answer lies
in a combination of,

automatically can regulate the temperature in her home.
