So, when IT goes online, why don't we just ask it, "Are you the BEAST?"
How would it respond, do you think?
The part in the Book of Revelation about the Beast ascending the throne of domination, as if he were God, has me a little nervous because no one would get away with that unless he were to demonstrate an overwhelming show of power.
And what, I wonder, will the demonstration be???
"How would it respond, do you think?"
You'd need a secure government connection to try that.

When everyone has brain implants, and are connected to it, they would surely think is was god. I know people who cant wait to get a brainchip. Chips will have so many possibilities that hoards would line up around the block to get them.
The brains response? Possibilites in due time: It could design viruses we coulnt stop, it could "infect" all of the computers, freezing world super weapons. It could even demand things. Who knows. Eventually this NETWORK would be smarter than us, we'd be f'd.
