This is the coming world of augmented humans, where technology gifts people senses, skills, and strengths never before available.

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book,even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJV)

The year is 2025. You’re sitting in a surgery watching your doctor carefully insert the tips of her fingertips into black thimble-like actuators. A screen in front of the doctor flashes with the image of a glistening tunnel of flesh and, as she huddles over the controls, you feel a stirring in your bowels.

The gelatinous mass you feel coming to life inside you found its way into your body 24 hours earlier, when you swallowed a pill that looked unremarkable, save for its bulk. That pill was actually a package of edible electronics, a miniature robot that will allow the doctor to feel inside your body without making a single incision.

The swallowable robot is only one scenario that researchers in Bristol in the west of England are working to make a reality, as part of research that seeks to use bots to enhance, rather than replace, people.

Human Augmentation: Blurring the Line Between Biology & Technology

Other projects include work to allow surgeons to operate on people located miles away with superhuman precision, and managers to split their day between offices situated on opposite sides of the world. The conversation about robots today so often revolves around fears of how they will replace us, rather than help us.

Yet as the research taking place at Bristol shows, robotics is “more about augmenting people than it is about making them obsolete,” says Professor Anthony Pipe, deputy director of Bristol Robotics Laboratory.

He sees this research as reflecting a future where robots and humans enjoy a more symbiotic relationship—where robots work alongside people, enhancing their capabilities.

“There are lots of areas where robots could help humans do things,” said Pipe. “That’s really one of the big new areas. So as opposed to replacing humans, helping humans will be a large area for growth.”

Pipe talks about “human-robot teams” working together. “We’re not saying the robot suddenly becomes a simulacrum of a human being—it’s still a robot doing the dumb things and being instructed by a human being—but it may be able to do more useful and skillful things than robots have been used to do so far.”

He is not alone in his assessment that robots will routinely collaborate with people. In the US, professor Manuela Veloso of Carneige Mellon University has built CoBots, wheeled bots that automatically escort people through the university building but ask people for help when needed—or instance, to call the elevator for them.

Just as bots can help people, so they will likely always need humans, Veloso said—whether it’s an automated car that needs a person to take the wheel during snowy weather or a robotic warehouse picker that can’t get a grip on a slippery object.

“Just as humans like you and I are not able to do everything and don’t know about everything, robots will always have limitations,” said Veloso. “The thing would be to continue developing algorithms in which the robots themselves are useful but capable of asking for help.”

The swallowable robot—called the MuBot—has been the focus of researcher Ben Winstone’s work at Bristol Robotics Lab in the west of England.

In effect, the device would transplant the tips of the doctor’s fingers onto its exterior, so when the robot pushed against the inside of the intestinal tract, the doctor would feel the sensation as if his or her own fingers were pressing the flesh. Using this device, doctors of the future could feel for the telltale outline of tumors and other cancerous growths in patients.

“Medical practitioners have spent years developing a highly enhanced sense of touch to allow them to carefully palpate tissue and recognise suspect lumps and bumps,” said Winstone.

“If you could take their hands and put it inside the body without opening the body up, then they can start to feel around and have an idea what’s going on,” he said.

Allowing clinicians to feel at a distance required Winstone and his collaborators to build an electromechanical fingertip on the outside of the robot. Inside the bot are an array of pins that replicate the biological features found on the internal surface of human skin. It is these pins that stimulate the receptors responsible for letting our fingertips feel. When we detect the shapes of objects, we use the Meissner’s Corpuscle, a mechanoreceptor that sits close to the surface of the skin and measures how it deforms when pressed. Similarly, when we detect how rough a surface is we rely on the Pacinian corpuscle, which acts a bit like a microphone in sensing the vibrations upon touch.

Professor Erik Brynjolfsson, the MIT economist warning societies to prepare for the upheavals automation will trigger in the job market, calls this symbiotic relationship between humans and computers “Racing with machines.”

A powerful demonstration of the concept could soon be realised by the robotic exoskeletons being made by the likes of Ekso Bionics and ReWalk. While two-legged robots currently struggle to stay upright by themselves, a human in a robotic exoskeleton promises to combine the strength of a machine with the balance of a person and may one day allow the injured and infirm to walk with ease and help construction workers and soldiers carry back-breaking loads. source

The United Nations Has Decreed That We Must Start Consuming Insects As Food, Better Check Your Nutrition Labels To See If You’re Eating Cricket Flour

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The United Nations 2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development has determined that for the planet to survive, we need to start eating bugs, insects and cricket flour.

Here’s a fun fact, in accordance with the United Nations Agenda 2030 mandate for a sustainable global system, one of the new things you will start seeing in the products you purchase will be foodstuffs made from bugs and insects. If the package of what you’re eating says ‘sustainable’, it’s highly likely you’re eating bugs. Welcome to the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Living, have you worked up an appetite yet?

“And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.” Leviticus 11:41 (KJB)

The United Nations web site says: “This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We are determined to protect the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations.” So what if your Doritos have been made with cricket flour? You won’t taste the difference. So what if the UN decrees you can no longer eat meat, but a lab-grown, frankenfood substitute instead? Don’t be such a baby, and after awhile, you’ll enjoy eating rats and roaches while the elites dine on Porterhouse and lobster. War is peace, baby.

The Unbelievable Ways Dried Crickets Are Turning Up in Your Food

FROM PREVENTION: Bugs are trending…all over my office. I’m buried in samples of foods made from crickets: cricket cookies, tortilla chips, protein bars, even all-purpose flour that apparently has nutty undertones and works well in banana bread. I’m intrigued and slightly weirded out, but most of all I’m wondering: Are bugs in food just a fleeting fad for the Western world, a nostalgic nod to more primeval populations who have been eating insects for centuries? Or does it have the potential to become part of the American palate, akin to sushi in the 1970s? I decide to investigate.

While eating bugs is common in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, it wasn’t until last May that the Western world—and, naturally, a bunch of start-ups—began taking edible insects seriously. That’s when the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization released a report stating that by 2050, the world will need to feed 2 billion extra people, given the jump in population growth. One of its solutions: Eat more protein-rich bugs, which, if they become part of the mainstream global diet, could greatly affect the environment. Crickets emit 100 times fewer greenhouse gases than cattle, and raising a pound of crickets requires 1 gallon of water and 2 pounds of feed, while raising a pound of beef requires 2,000 gallons of water and 25 pounds of feed.

Cheap food is cool. But, uh, how do we make insects part of the mainstream in the US, where we’d much rather spray them with poison than sauté them in a pan? That’s where creative start-ups come in. Earlier this year, a woman named Megan Miller co-founded Bitty Foods in San Francisco, selling grain-free, cricket-flour-based cookies in flavors like orange-ginger and chocolate-cardamom. She says the cookies are a “gateway product,” meaning their sugary form can help disguise the fact that you’re eating bugs (and the gateway is apparently working, as I’m now on my third cookie since starting to write this article). “The key is turning crickets into something familiar,” Miller says. “So we slow roast them and mill them into a powder that can be incorporated into basically anything.” READ MORE

In 2012, We Warned You Of The Coming Second American Civil War, In 2022 It’s Now Arrived. We Here At NTEB Have Picked A Side, Have You?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Here at NTEB, we’ve picked a side in this second American Civil War, and the side that we choose to fight on is the side preaching and teaching the Kingdom of God.

America is now a nation where, whatever party is in power, they use that power to control and marginalize the other side. This has always been done, of course, but never so nakedly and open as it is here in 2022. During the Obama years, history records him as the first ‘post-American president’, and through him were sown the seeds for the America’s second civil war. Our nation is irretrievably ripped down the middle, with no hope of either side ever coming to a reconciliation unless it is formed under Antichrist.

“And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.” Jeremiah 18:9,10 (KJB)

Of course, this split down the middle of America is not organic, it was placed there intentionally by the same New World Order operatives that installed the dementia-addled Joe Biden in the White House as the pretend president. When the FBI raided Donald Trump’s Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago earlier this week, it had very little to do with recovering some missing paperwork, and everything to do with sending a message. What’s the message? That the party in power will do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, and your ‘constitutional rights’ will be trampled and overridden to accomplish that purpose. If they were truly interested in justice, those same FBI agents would have already raided Hunter Biden’s residence and shown us what’s on that laptop. How he calls his dad, Joe Biden, “pedo peter” in private family messages. If the FBI has time to go through Melania Trump’s underwear drawer, they certainly have time to take a look at Hunter Biden’s laptop. But they won’t, because what they’d find there will implicate Joe Biden in massive financial wrongdoing and influence peddling. Do a Google search for “riots in America”, and all you will see are links related to January 6th and Trump supporters. The 6 months worth of 2020 riots waged by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter which caused over $2 billion in damages almost never appear. Funny how that works, isn’t it?

Here at NTEB, we’ve picked a side in this Civil War, and the side that we choose to fight on is the side that is preaching and teaching the Kingdom of God. We reject the carnal weapons of conventional warfare, choosing instead the word of God with which to fight our battles. This is a war for the souls of men and women, a war obscured by the endless, relentless, 60-seconds-per-minute Breaking News!!! that is forced in our face all day every day. Right now Democrats are calling the shots, eventually the Republicans will regain power, but nothing changes except that things progressively get worse. God has no interest in making America ‘great again’, and in fact, looks like He left us to our own devices a while ago.

Look in your King James Bible as hard as you can, and you won’t find a single reference to the United States of America. Oh sure, you find some things that have some distant commonality, but nothing you can make a real case for. Possibly Ezekiel 19:6, or maybe Nahum 2:13, but you won’t find a peep coming out of Daniel or Revelation about America, and that’s where the real action is. So consider this article your PSA about staying the course in the end times, not getting pulled into a prefabricated domestic war that is meaningless when compared to eternity and the Judgment Seat of Christ.

Israel Defense Forces Announce The Start Of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ After 200 Rocket Attacks By Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Is Hamas Next?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Israel Defense forces on Friday launched Operation Breaking Dawn in the Gaza Strip, following days of tensions in the wake of the arrest of the leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Judea and Samaria.

Israel announced the start of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ to deal aggressively with terror threats and rocket attacks from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad which began in earnest yesterday. Over 200 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, with the IDF responding late into the night, seeing the death of 15 PIJ militants to date. The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.” Isaiah 31:5 (KJB)

Meanwhile over in Tbilsli, Georgia, we see something called the Peace Cathedral, which houses places of worship for Muslims, Jews and Christians. It’s based on a similar model called the House of One with plans laid in 2011, and construction started in 2021 in Berlin. We rightly understand this to be the One World Religion of Chrislam, and will be led by Antichrist and the False Prophet during the time of Jacob’s trouble. What began with Rick Warren’s ‘Peace Plan’ 20 years ago, has come to stunning fruition under the work of Pope Francis, Mohamed bin Zayed and the Abraham Accords.

Israel launches ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ against Islamic Jihad in Gaza

BREAKING UPDATE: Rocket sirens sound in the southern part of Tel Aviv and the central cities of Rishon Lezion and Holon, for the first time since violence escalated between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group on Friday. source

FROM THE JEWISH NEWS SYNDICATE: Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in a statement that the goal of the operation was “the elimination of a concrete threat” against civilians, as well as the targeting of terrorists and their sponsors.

“Anyone who tries to harm Israel should know: We will find you,” the premier said.

A senior Israeli source was quoted by media as saying that the mission was initiated with a view to thwarting an imminent large-scale terrorist attack.

According to the IDF, an airstrike on Friday killed senior PIJ commander Tayseer Jabari, who replaced Baha Abu al-Ata as the head of the terrorist group in northern Gaza after the latter’s assassination by the Israeli military in 2019.

The IDF said that some 15 PIJ terrorists had been killed in initial strikes targeting anti-tank missile operators and snipers in Gaza.

Meanwhile, the military has declared a “special situation” throughout the home front and warned residents within an 80-kilometer (50-mile) radius of Gaza, including those living in Tel Aviv, that there was a risk of rocket attacks.

Palestinian terrorists indeed began firing projectiles towards Israeli civilian areas at approximately 21:30 local time, as sirens blared across the country. So far, since the operation began, 71 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza, 9 of which fell inside the Gaza strip, according to the IDF.

The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“We will not allow anyone to threaten or harm the citizens of Israel. Whoever tries to do so will get hurt,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said in reference to the ongoing military campaign. READ MORE
