“Image” Technology

14 And he (the “false prophet”) deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak …

– Revelation 13:14-15


Andrew Niccol slide

In the “last days,” during the days of the Antichrist (Rev. 13), there will be the creation of an “image” of the antichrist which will deceive the world by way of its perfection as a replica. In today’s advanced technology, this replica can be both robotic and virtual. On this page, we will show evidence of this technology and its evolution to perfection.


Human-like Computers Near At-Hand

home_brain“Computers have entered the age when they are able to learn from their own mistakes, a development that is about to turn the digital world on its head,” reports the Dec. 28 edition of the New York Times. “Not only can it automate tasks that now require painstaking programming —
for example, moving a robot’s arm smoothly and efficiently — but it can also sidestep and even tolerate errors, potentially making the term ‘computer crash’ obsolete.”

“Instead of bringing data to computation as we do today, we can now bring computation to data,” said Dharmendra Modha, an I.B.M. computer scientist who leads the company’s cognitive computing research effort. “Sensors become the computer, and it opens up a new way to use computer chips that can be everywhere.”

What this means is that the nextgen computers will have the ability to not only learn from errors, but, as a result, change their minds as humans do.

“In coming years,” NYT reports, “the approach will make possible a new generation of artificial intelligence systems that will perform some functions that humans do with ease: see, speak, listen, navigate, manipulate and control. That can hold enormous consequences for tasks like facial and speech recognition, navigation and planning, which are still in elementary stages and rely heavily on human programming.” ~ Read more …

“Our future is a race between the growing power of technology and the wisdom with which we use it. The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” – Stephen Hawkins

Kevin Kelly “The realm of the born – all that is ‘nature’ – and the realm of the made – all that is humanly constructed – are becoming one. Machines are becoming biological and the biological is becoming engineered. Technicians are conjuring up contraptions that are at once both made and alive … Our future is technological; but it will not be a world of gray steel. Rather, our technological future is headed toward a neo-biological civilization.” – Kevin Kelly (founder: WIRED magazine)

About therevelationfile

The Revelation File is hosted and edited by Wally Wood in Houston TX. It began as a daily radio news commentary over the Sonlight Radio Network from 1980 to 1984 and, in 1985, over KSBJ in Houston, as part of the Christian News Network that Wally had started at the time. The “RevFile” eventually became a nationwide subscription news service to the body of Christ in the late 1990s ... and has expanded still further to include the quarterly "Revelation File News Forum" at Encourager Church in Houston. To receive The Revelation File newsletter by email, send your request to: info@revelationfile.com. For more information about the Forums, see details on the "Events" page of this website, or go to the "Contact Us" page to schedule a Forum event for your church.
