Recently, the World Economic Forum has garnered an intense amount of attention as their plans for a transhumanism future with a smaller population has become common knowledge. Although founded back in 1971 by billionaire Klaus Schwab, the organization has grown to include members like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and one of the WEF’s top advisors, Yuval Noah Harari.
Being both a historian and philosopher, Dr. Harari has fantasized what the future of the world might look like. At the same time, the WEF is eagerly pushing forward with machines and humans becoming one. While that might be hard to imagine without the help of Hollywood, the video below is from the 2018 annual WEF meeting. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic and the government overreach that followed, Dr. Harari was discussing the possibilities behind being able to hack humans.
Take a look.
Explaining the problems of the past, the Doctor noted, “Until today, nobody had the necessary computing power and the necessary data to hack humanity. Even if the Soviet KGB, or the Spanish Inquisition, followed you around everywhere, 24 hours a day, watching everything you do, listening to everything you say – still, they didn’t have the computing power and the biological knowledge necessary to make sense of what was happening inside your body and brain, and to understand how you feel and what you think and what you want. But this is now changing because of two simultaneous revolutions.”
Those revolutions included, “On the one hand, advances in computer science, and especially the rise of machine learning and AI, are giving us the necessary computing power. And at the same time, advances in biology, and especially in brain science, are giving us the necessary biological understanding. You can really summarize 150 years of biological research since Charles Darwin, in three words, organisms are algorithms. This is the big insight of the modern life sciences. That organisms, whether viruses, or bananas, or humans, they are really just biochemical algorithms. And we are learning how to decipher these algorithms.”
Dr. Harari didn’t forget to mention how beneficial this could be: “Once you have enough such biometric information, and enough computing power, you can create algorithms that know me better than I know myself. And humans really don’t know themselves very well. This is why algorithms have a real chance of getting to know ourselves better.” He added, “Imagine the situation in 10 or 20 years, when an algorithm can tell any teenager exactly where he or she is on the gay straight spectrum. The algorithm tracks your eye movements, your blood pressure, your brain activity, and tells you who you are.”
As for those who might fight against this idea of the future, it appears to be almost impossible: “Even if you walk away, and even if you keep hiding from your classmates or from yourself, you will not be able to hide from Amazon and Alibaba and the secret police. As you watch videos or check your social feed, the algorithms will be monitoring your eye movements, your blood pressure, your brain activity, and they will know. They could tell Coca Cola that if you want to sell this person, some fuzzy, sugary drink, don’t use the advertisement with the shirtless girl, use the advertisement with the shirtless guy. You wouldn’t even know that this was happening. But they will know and this information will be worth billions.”

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
