A number of naval officers visited the home of an American presidential candidate and “transhumanist” called Zoltan Istvan, who believes human beings should be fitted with technology.  In his letter, Vice Admiral Wisecup said the meeting broadened “our understanding… of the merger of humans and machines”.

“Your personal perspectives were interesting and timely as we begin our research process,” he wrote.

“You have had a direct impact on our viewpoints for future concepts.”

Istvan believes human life could be enhanced if we all agree to have computers or chips fitted to our bodies and brains.  “A bunch of navy officers came to my house and one of the main topics was this chip implant strategy,” Istvan said.   For some people, the thought of being “chipped” conjures up an image of a nightmarish world where the state carries out constant surveillance on its citizens.

But Istvan believes microchipping humans could have some major benefits. He claimed it could allow parents to know if their child was in danger and could even have allowed investigators to find the body of Lane Graves, who was killed in an alligator attack, in a matter of minutes.  He said the military had already experimented with chipping soldiers “so they can be tracked”.  With the chip a person can be tracked and monitored without their consent.

“This technology has been used in various ways with animals for over a decade,” he said.
