The latest technological revolution will make existing technology
look like the stone age, yet few people outside of academia and
industry are even aware of it.
Many, if not most, of the
people who are driving these technologies are Technocrats who intend
to connect the world into a single global entity.
Think, 'hive mind',
'global city' and
Three particular technologies were prominently featured at the
prestigious 2017 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain
from February 27 through March 2.
disruptive technology is 5G, or Fifth
Generation, cell phone communication protocol. The first
keynote speaker was Mats Granryd (Director-General of the
Groupe Spéciale Mobile Association, or GSMA).
His bio on the Mobile
World website states,
Mats is a strong
proponent of sustainability and led the mobile industry in
becoming the first sector to broadly commit to the United
Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2016.
He is now
spearheading initiatives to amplify and accelerate the mobile
industry's impact on all 17 of the SDGs, across both developed
and developing markets.
5G is widely expected to
power the Internet of Everything (IoE), which includes all
citizens of the world as well as all devices in the Internet of
This new standard will be
common by 2020 and ubiquitous by 2025. It improves current 4G
performance by orders of magnitude. 5G is expected to provide mobile
users within every metropolitan area with at least 100 megabits per
When you consider devices
associated with people - mobile phones, fitness wearables, etc. -
and with inanimate objects such as smart meters, cameras,
thermostats, light bulbs and a myriad of sensors through homes and
neighborhoods, then the entire conglomeration will be viewable and
manageable in real-time.
Incidentally, there are many critics warning about the
radiation dangers associated with 5G, but industry
proponents are basically ignoring, if not suppressing, these dangers
while moving ahead at breakneck speed.
Speakers at Mobile World reiterated their goal of creating a 'global
mind' that would be enabled by 5G in conjunction with Artificial

rocket booster to AI, where decisions and outcomes will be
made and delivered in real-time, as if the system as a whole
is a living, breathing person.

Although scientists had
an awareness of it for decades, Graphene was only rediscovered
in 2004. Since then, global academia and industry have dumped
hundreds of millions of dollars into R&D because it will
revolutionize several entire industries at once, from IoT to
wearables to energy to computers and data communications.
Graphene is a two-dimensional (e.g., one atom thick) atomic-scale
hexagonal lattice made of Carbon atoms. It is 200 times stronger
than steel and yet is flexible like skin. It conducts heat and is as
conductive as silicon used in semiconductors.
The University of Manchester, where Graphene was re-discovered in
2004, states that,
"combining all of
graphene's amazing properties could create an impact of the
scale last seen with the Industrial Revolution."
It goes on to say,
electronics, energy, defence, desalination; the range of
industries where graphene research is making an impact is
This is only the
start. These are only the first steps. The potential of graphene
is limited only by our imagination.
Thus, it was not
surprising that the Graphene Flagship was front and center at
Mobile World 2017.
Some of the further applications it defines include,
...and the list goes on
Did I mention sensors?
Think, Internet of Everything...!
If you need more proof, consider this. According to the brochure,
the bottom line was seen in the Graphene Connect Workshop
Datacom to IoT - Enabled by Graphene".
Taken as a package, these three technologies,
...are fully expected to
bring about the new one-world scientific order. A global
brain. A hive mind. Symbiotic command and control...
Like Mats Granryd stated above, the mobile industry supports not
only the broad idea of the
United Nation's 2030 Agenda, but
every single one of its so-called Sustainable Development Goals
It's all about connectivity and control. It's Scientific
In one word, it's
