“Skynet was a computer system developed for the U.S. military by the defence firm Cyberdyne Systems. Skynet was first built as a “Global Digital defence Network” and given command over all computerized military hardware and systems, including the B-2 stealth bomber fleet and America’s entire nuclear weapons arsenal.”

Skynet is of course the fictional creation in the Terminator franchise but please welcome onto the stage….Google! Oh no it’s just another blog post containing the ramblings of a conspiracy theory crackpot….but is it? Because as we all know Google is a very powerful company, it’s hard to believe that it only came into existence in 1998 and it is impossible to remember life without it. The company has come on leaps and bounds since its humble beginnings as a research project of Larry Page and Sergey Brin, it is now a monolithic multi-national powerhouse that probably knows more about ourselves than we do. Does Google partnership with the NSA and share this precious information? We can only speculate on that which leads us nicely the theme of today’s blog, it is speculation based on facts, Google has had a very busy year making some revealing purchases which I am going to examine and question.

Google has a long history of acquisitions which fitted in-line with what Google is all about, perhaps with the exception of them purchasing YouTube in 2006. But enter 2013 and then things get freaky:

  • March 12, 2013- DNNresearch, a Deep Neural Networks company
  • April 23, 2013- Wavii, a Natural Language Processing company
  • June 11, 2013- Waze, a GPS navigation software company.
  • October 2, 2013- Flutter, a Gesture Recognition company.
  • December 2, 2013- Schaft Inc, a Humanoid Robots company.
  • December 3, 2013- Industrial Perception, a Computer Vision company.
  • December 4, 2013- Redwood Robotics, a Robotic Arms company.
  • December 5, 2013- Meka Robotics, a Robots company.
  • December 6, 2013- Holomni, a Robotic Wheels company.
  • December 7, 2013- Bot & Dolly, a Robotic Cameras company.
  • December 8, 2013- Boston Dynamics, a Robotics company.
  • January 13th 2014- Nest, a Home Automation company.

Now it wouldn’t take a genius to see that Google are clearly going to enter the business of Robotics, why is this a scary prospect? Well for a start I have seen iRobot! I am not a luddite by any means, I welcome all advances in technology but when it is powerful technology in the hands of powerful corporations then questions must be asked. The purchases that have raised flags for me is the purchase of Boston Dynamics which makes robots for DARPA, acronym for Defence Advancement Research Projects Agency, it’s part of the Department of Defence of the USA and their job is to create Robocop and other such futuristic killing machines. The purchase of the company Nest is also a cause for concern.

If we are to believe what we read in certain books and on certain websites then there is a plan to control and enslave the global population, one of the big questions that is always asked regarding this scenario is how would a human being be the enforcer of evil on fellow human beings, well history shows that this hasn’t been a problem in the past but replace humans with robots and the problem of morality and enforcement of evil is not even on the radar. Like I said this is not me prophesising but simply speculating, with the technology we have available we are in the position to turn this earth into a heaven or a hell but I cannot help feel that with the money masters spearheading the charge the future is going to be a dystopian nightmare rather than a utopian dream, this is why we need to act now and make all the changes that will allow goodness to thrive.

The announcement of their purchase of Nest reminded me of a story I read at the end of last year, this is a passage I read out on my radio show on 15.12.20131:

“And speaking of privacy the engineering director of Google Scott Huffman this week told The Independent that in his vision of the future Google users would have microphones fitted inside their homes. Huffman envisages houses with microphones fitted to the ceiling that act like personal assistants; responding to voice queries and connecting to phones, tablets and other smart devices, I’ve seen an episode of The Simpsons which involved one of these type of houses, it didn’t end well. According to a patent submitted by Google-owned Motorola, the firm also has plans for electronic tattoos that could be used to read fluctuations of muscle or tissue in the throat and register what the wearer was saying along with microchips that could be used to send data straight to a person’s brain. Maybe the conspiracy theories weren’t so crazy after all.”

Add smart meters into the mix and for me this is a very worrying prospect, we are talking about total control here people. It is clear to see how the powers that be view the people of this earth and if you are to believe in Agenda 21 then the future is not so bright. For me we are at a T-Junction, to the left is road one which leads to unprecedented freedom and to the right is road two which leads to unprecedented slavery and control. The powers that be have the blinkers on the majority of the world’s population, they are blindly being led in the direction of road two whilst a few vigilant citizens are trying to point out we can just as easily walk down road one to happiness and freedom. Think about it.
