In the News (USA Today): “Welcome to the future?
“A Wisconsin technology company is offering its employees microchip implants that can be used to scan into the building and purchase food at work. Whether or not to get a chip is up to the employee to decide.
“Three Square Market, a company that provides technology for break-room or micro markets, has over 50 employees who plan to have the devices implanted. The tiny chip, which uses RFID technology or Radio-Frequency Identification, can be implanted between the thumb and forefinger ‘within seconds,’ according to a statement from the company.”
My Comment: This indicates universalism; instead of holding cards in a pocket, one has the possibility of connecting directly. Cards can be lost, someone else might take it, while here everything is accurate and safe. Undoubtedly, this is what is awaiting everyone in the future. They will implant chips in children as soon as they are born. There will be nothing special about implantation; they will simply insert a chip like an injection, and that is all.
Question: Why would someone agree to that?
Answer: It is for no other reason than making life easier.
Question: Where are we heading with this?
Answer: We will get to the point where there will be a passport in which all of the data about a person will be burned, including insurance, medical cards, all of the information about him. It will be possible to record everything on the chip and then read everything from there, for example, the results of the medical examinations of a person and more. This is very good and convenient.
Comment: In addition to this, the person agrees more and more with them following him, no matter where he is, at any location.
Answer: What is it that we need to hide!?
Comment: I have a personal life! I am married….
Answer: Is it a personal life? What is not understood and recognized about this personal life?
Question: Does this mean that you are saying that a person has nothing to hide?
Answer: Absolutely not! These are all of our weaknesses. It is our nature and we have no reason to hide it. On the contrary, when we rise above everything, it will be much simpler for us. We will no longer play like little children. What difference does it make to me if they can read everything about me?
Comment: A person hides a lot of things like these and others….
Answer: This is because the people around him look at him as if there are conditions in which it seems that it is necessary to hide something.
Comment: A person lives in a locked house, behind walls. He has a bath and a toilet….
Answer: Imagine that there is a camera that sees everything about you everywhere and everything that is happening. So what? Let them look! What can they see? The anxiety is only if I am trying to pretend something to others, if I am trying to put on a show for them, if I am exploiting others; then I have something to hide. But if I relate to others with an open heart, then what do I have to hide? I am sure that we are developing toward a situation in which people will be completely open and exposed to one another.
What is there to hide?! I don’t understand; about what can you denounce me? That is how I was created! If I am not harming anyone, then look at me from all sides. Come in, check me out all that you want and however you want. Only if you can denounce me for harming someone, then yes, I have a reason to be anxious.
Question: And I hide this….?
Answer: Hide or don’t hide, it makes no difference; I can be afraid or be ashamed only if I harm someone else. And if not, then why should I be ashamed?
Question: What does the wisdom of Kabbalah say about this?
Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah says that a person doesn’t need to “hide” from others about anything that touches upon his actions; it is up to him to hide his Masach (screen) and hide from his ego and not from other people. On the contrary, it is up to him to relate to other people with an open heart and to himself, only by way of a Masach.
Question: If so, all of the psychology that you are talking about leads to a person approaching an anti-egoistic Masach?
Answer: The person will be interested in other possibilities and problems, like how truly to discover the same unique thing that is found in it.
Question: What is the conclusion one can derive from this?
Answer: The conclusion is very simple, aside from not carrying out the principle, “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18), there is nothing more to be concerned about. That is all.
