What are microchips? How and why could they be implanted in humans? How are they used in developed countries? And what would that have to do with 5G technology and, more recently, the COVID-19 pandemic? The moderators of the show Bună Dimineaţa (Good Morning) broadcast by the TV station Moldova1 together with their guest – Dinu ȚURCANU, Vice-Rector for Informatization, Partnerships, Institutional Image and Communication, intend to destroy the myths about microchips.
Referring to what microchips actually are and how they could be implanted in people, Dinu Țurcanu urged viewers not to believe conspiracy theories. These integrated circuit “pills” (according to DEX, microchips are small semiconductors in which an integrated circuit is or is to be inserted) have been widely used until the COVID pandemic. An example would be pacemakers, which are used by many patients globally – they are modern implanted microchips that can collect certain data about the patient, based on which the doctor can help/save him. By the way, the technology industry, including the micro-one, has been using them for a while, but the world has somehow panicked now, in 2020. What caused this fear and anxiety?
The situation intensified with the development of 5G mobile communication technology, followed by the pandemic – people began looking for a link between 5G technology, COVID and microchipping. Which is absolutely wrong! There has been a lot of news lately that such microchips had already been implanted in a lot of humans, including in European countries, which is partially true. Sweden – a developed country with an advanced information technology culture, where Skype, the first Internet communications application, had its start, but also the first Ericsson mobile communication systems were initiated, is the country in which an audio streaming platform was invented, through which Spotify is trying to increase the consumption of podcasts; a country that uses the lowest number of banknotes and coins (less than 1%), making various purchases with the help of technology. Referring to microchips, the Swedes implanted them widely in pets, so that they can be located when they are lost. Microchips are also used for online purchases. In other words, the microchips represent an evolution from the mobile phones, which not long ago were a huge leap in the field of technologies, if we are to make a comparison.
This chip that is talked about so much is nothing but the identity of a person in the world of technology. It allows us to use technologies more easily. For example, lately, Swedes have been talking a lot about banking through bank cards, noting that every citizen has more than 10 cards, and these can be joined with a chip that would integrate all the information about that person’s cards and could be very easy to use. In other words, it is not about population control or phantasmagoric transformations.
Can we expect a large-scale implementation of microchips in various countries, following the example of Sweden?
Yes, it is natural, but this will happen out of necessity, not by force. It is up to each citizen to make a choice regarding the use of certain services and to achieve a certain level of efficiency. For example, there has been a lot of talk lately about security, and the implanted microchip represents a higher degree of security compared to the wallet card, which can be lost, or the smartphone that is always exposed. On the other hand, we must also take into account personal data, which must be secured, and an effective way will be researched in this regard. What is certain is that the implantation of the microchip could never be imposed, just as even now it is not mandatory to have a smartphone, and if you have it – it’s just an argument in the favour of wanting to keep up with new technologies, to have the opportunity to communicate anytime, anywhere.
The story of man and technology dates back to the industrial revolution, when people feared that machines would take their place. Over the course of 100 years, however, people have managed to adapt to new technologies and evolve. Thus, the phantasmagorias about evil vaccines, microchip implants with total control over the population and that we will all soon become Cyborgs – are just deceptions, and the highly technological time we live in should teach us to distinguish the difference.
