Number 17: nanotech
don’t think that one has been covered on this site but it hit me hard this morning! I am reading a book, “The Return” by Ben Bova and he tells about the nanotechmachines that live inside of some people: these tiny machines were designed to constantly repair internal organs and some even constantly repaired the person’s skin and bones structure… to keep a person looking young and ‘being’ young and healthy for 200 or more years. Anyway, these nanomachines are forbidden on earth (they might be dangerous) but some of the rich inhabitants of the moon and asteroids use the nanotechnology ….. (and the very rich on earth)
they also devised nanomachines that could be dropped on the facilities of an enemy…. the little machines would eat up the facility and leave it as a pile of dust…. people and materials…… the little machines were programmed to stop eating after about 36 hours or so….
anyway, I tell you this because this book was published in 2009….. this nanotechnology is more advanced than we’ll ever know…. writers do stretch the truth, but more often than not, they are very close to the truth…. our government probably has its hands already dirty with nanotechnology. The article in the list above is worth reading.
Also, Ben Bova has written many books about the earth and its adventures on the moon and asteroids and Saturn’s circles… they all connect.
This book, The Return, tells about the dumbing and controling of earth’s people and how it has affected everyone.. in a fiction story way……. scary reading… the ‘sheep’ have been lulled and terroized into complete submission… but a hero has returned and he might give them a solution…
I haven’t finished it yet….. so I can’t tell you.
