Unfortunately, We’ve Been Assimilated
“Resistance is futile.”
“We are Borg”.
The Borg are TV aliens in Star Trek’s sci-fi series. Borg is a collective that thinks as one through the process of ‘assimilation’ transforming individual beings into drones by injecting nano-probes into their bodies, and surgically augmenting them with cybernetic components. The Borg’s ultimate goal is ‘achieving perfection’. The master race. Sound familiar?
Is there a correlation in human society? Certainly. We are where sci-fi writers get their information from – just the names and visuals change. We are watching our own imprisonment by assimilation.
‘Injecting nano-probes’ = ideas about a false reality, ingesting them through innocuous products*.
‘Augmented with cybernetic components’ = attached to smart technology and machines.
‘Achieving perfection’ = do and say what the others do and say, and be predictable.
If we think we are not Borg,
we think as the collective.
The Borg is not allowed to protest.
Resistance is futile diligence.
All we have to do is recognise that we are stuck a collective loop,
and then we are free in the moment of seeing.
*Nanotechnology, and specifically single wall carbon nanotubes, have already been successfully applied in hundreds of other applications including supercapacitors, lead-acid batteries, anti-icing coatings, scratch-resistant sunglasses, wind turbine blade composites, lightning strike protection, frying pan coatings…
Solvents: The solvents found in many glass cleaners, carpet cleaners, hard-surface cleaners, and oven cleaners contain EGBE, or 2-butoxyethanol, which evidence links to fertility problems in lab animals.
BPA (Bisphenol-A) is a chemical compound found in many consumer products including polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins used in food and drink packaging. However, evidence is accumulating that suggests that BPA may contribute to a variety of health problems.
Men who have been exposed to common chemicals known as parabens have lower testosterone levels and more sperm that are abnormally shaped and slow moving, according to a study that suggests these ingredients may contribute to infertility.
Adrenaline, cortisol, melatonin, and other hormones can affect your mood or even influence the health of your brain. Cortisol is a hormone released when you’re stressed. It’s helpful at times, but too much of it for too long can cause memory loss as you age.
The neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) are specifically believed to be linked to mood and anxiety disorders. These neurotransmitter are in charge of regulating various bodily and mental functions.
We know that antipsychotics shrink the brain in a dose-dependent manner and benzodiazepines, antidepressants and ADHD drugs also seem to cause permanent brain damage.
Antidepressants may trigger hypomania or mania in some people. This may stop if you stop taking the antidepressant, but sometimes it may be a sign of bipolar disorder. In this case, you may be given a new diagnosis and different medication.
