The World Economic Forum is promoting “augmentation technology” to morph humans into cyborgs and recommends children be implanted with brain chips.
The brain chips will not only improve health by eradicating impairments like learning disabilities and depression, but pave the way for humans to attain superhuman capacities, contends an August 16 article published on the WEF website.
“Superheroes have been dominating big and small screens for a while, but there’s a subtle change happening. Many children expect to develop superpowers themselves. These expectations may sound unattainable, but we’re already making the first strides towards an “augmented society,” writes WEF “agenda contributor” Kathleen Phillips in the blog post titled, “Augmented tech can change the way we live, but only with the right support and vision.”

While brain chips or augmentation, like “cochlear implants” or “prosthetics” are used to remedy cognitive impairments, the technology will be used to enhance everyday life, particularly for children who would benefit from developing ultra sensory perception, the article argues.
“The augmenting technology will help in all stages of life: children in a learning environment, professionals at work and ambitious senior citizens. There are many possibilities,” Phillips notes.
“Should you implant a tracking chip in your child? There are solid, rational reasons for it, like safety,” the scientist writes. “Many children with attention deficit struggle in school. In the best case, they get special education services or classroom accommodations. However, with extra visual and audio guidance that blocks off excess stimuli, an otherwise-enabled child can cope with a standard school environment. And when class is over and playtime begins, they can just take the aids off.”
Brain implants will provide health benefits “equivalent of a dog’s nose” in a gadget “that can be handy to sniff out COVID-19,” the WEF agenda contributor assures. But unlike phones that “might feel like part of your body,” the augmentation technology “will become more intertwined with the body in the form of implants.”
The article features a video produced by the WEF outlining “an ethical framework for a technologically augmented society.”
Phillips surmises an “augmented society” is inevitable and points to global elites who are are establishing a monopoly over brain implants to “ethically” regulate the technology that soon be pervasive across the globe.
“The Council of Europe recently launched a strategic action plan tackling issues raised by the application of neurotechnologies. Another example, Rathenau Institute founded by the Dutch government, operates as an independent institution to reflect on questions related to the impact of technology on our lives,” Phillips writes. “Chile is already a step ahead. Last year, the country pioneered a bill to amend its constitution to protect personal brain data. Several countries are now exploring how to address these issues surrounding (brain) implants. The task is daunting as ethicists will not only need to scrutinize blooming technology but also potential future applications.”
“Technology has always had the potential to transform society and improve our daily and professional lives. So does augmentation technology,” the WEF article concludes. “It goes hand in hand with an evolution from health care to ‘well care’, where it’s not just about solving an impairment anymore. It’s about technology that supports you and improves your overall quality of life.”
WEF chief Klaus Schwab contends transhumanism, or merging man with machine, is imperative to achieving the “The Great Reset” or “fourth industrial revolution.”
“What the fourth industrial revolution will lead to is a fusion of our physical, digital and biological identities,” Schwab told the Chicago Council on Global Affairs in 2019.
