 February 9 - This Technology Could Finally Make Brain Implants Practical
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:
Man's attempts to connect computers with brain tissue will continue in the future as a way to turn humans into robots. The question is, will these hybrid beings eventually change the nature of what it means to be human?
In labs testing how brain implants could help people with physical disabilities, tales of success can be bittersweet. Experiments like those that let a paralyzed person swig coffee using a robotic arm, or that let blind people "see" spots of light, have proven the huge potential of computers that interface with the brain. But the implanted electrodes used in such trials eventually become useless, as scar tissue forms that degrades their electrical connection to brain cells (see "The Thought Experiment").

Next month, tests will begin in monkeys of a new implant for piping data into the brain that is designed to avoid that problem. The project is intended to lead to devices that can restore vision to blind people long-term.

 February 11 - Vatican appoints pastoral envoy to Medjugorje
 Article: Roman Catholic Church And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
If Pope Francis was really concerned about pastoral direction at Medjugorje, he would tell the priests to teach the Bible and warn the poor people that they are being deceived by apparitions and apparitional messages. The Bible warns about such appearances of spirit beings that masquerade as agents of truth.
Pope Francis on Saturday appointed Archbishop Henryk Hoser of Warszawa-Praga as a delegate of the Holy See to look into the pastoral situation at Medjugore, the site of alleged Marian apparitions in Bosnia and Herzegovina. "The mission has the aim of acquiring a deeper knowledge of the pastoral situation there and above all, of the needs of the faithful who go there in pilgrimage, and on the basis of this, to suggest possible pastoral initiatives for the future," stated a Feb. 11 communique from the Vatican Secretariat of State.

 February 14 - NASA: A peanut-shaped asteroid might bang Earth!
 Article: Signs Of The Last Times

Comment from UTT:
There are numerous asteroids passing near the earth that have the potential to bring about the destruction that is coming on the planet according to the Bible. It is not a question of if this will happen, but when.
The NASA has lately warned about a potentially dangerous, peanut-shaped asteroid which may slam Earth one day. Dubbed as 2015 BN509, the asteroid is 200 meters (660ft) wide and 400 meters (1,310ft) long. The space rock was found to pass by Earth at a distance of 70,500km (44,000mph) last week. The closest proximity between the Earth and the asteroid was equal to 14 times the distance between the Moon and Earth.

 February 9 - Could we one day make babies from only skin cells?
 Article: Cloning And Genetic Engineering

Comment from UTT:
Where will genetic manipulation of human life go in the future? Read this article and find out about a Pandora's box filled with horror. Science sells these ideas in the name of progress. Surely the God of the Bible sees what man is doing. The question is, how long before the judgment?
In the not-so-distant future, research suggests, eggs and sperm may no longer be needed to make a baby -- at least not in the traditional way. In 2016, scientists in Japan revealed the birth of mice from eggs made from a parent's skin cells, and many researchers believe the technique could one day be applied to humans. The process, called in vitro gametogenesis, allows eggs and sperm to be created in a culture dish in the lab.

 February 10 - Cash No Longer King: Europe Begins Elimination of Paper Money
 Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System

Comment from UTT:
According to this article, a cashless society can and will not be avoided. Globalism depends on a one world currency that can be monitored by a central agency. This also agrees with the system that the Bible warns is coming.
Technocracy requires a cashless society so that everyone is included. A digital system can then be converted into an energy currency. This requirement was set in the 1930s by the original designers of Technocracy.  TN Editor


In the shadow of Donald Trump's spree of controversial actions, the European commission has quietly launched the next offensive in the war on cash. These unelected bureaucrats have boldly asserted their intention to crack down on paper transactions across the E.U. and solidify a trend that has been gaining momentum for years.
