"The smarter supply chain of the future"The digital and physical infrastructures of our world are converging. Thanks to the falling price and rising reliability of sensor technologies, practically any activity or process can now be measured. Objects can communicate and collaborate directly, without human intervention. Entire systems can be connected – not just supply chains with other supply chains, but also with transportation systems, financial markets, electric power grids and even natural systems like rivers and weather patterns. Every insight derived from a world of smart objects can lead to action – and more value. With so much embedded intelligence, supply chain management can progress from decision support to decision delegation and, ultimately, to a predictive capability. As the world begins to work differently, we see a different kind of supply chain emerging – a smarter supply chain with three core characteristics: Instrumented Supply chain information that was previously created by people will increasingly be generated by sensors, RFID tags, meters, actuators, GPS and other devices and systems. In terms of visibility, supply chains not only will be able to “see” more events, but also witness them as they occur. They will rely less on labor-based tracking and monitoring, as objects like shipping containers, trucks, products and parts report on themselves. Dashboards on devices perhaps not yet invented will display the realtime status of plans, commitments, sources of supply, pipeline inventories and consumer requirements." 
I'm up past my bedtime and decided to check Daniel Taylor's oldthinkernews.com. I found a startling article about alleged EU decisions to push something called "The Internet of Things." Daniel Taylor wrote an excellent article which I commend to all of you. I didn't just take his word for it, however. I did my own research and checked recent news stories. What I have found, in my opinion, is terrifying. Indeed, work for the night is coming when we can work no more! It appears that things are well underway for total interconnection -- perhaps the prophesied "hour of temptation that will come upon all that dwell on the face of the earth."
Read this from Telefonica, one of the primary backers of the IOT project about its possibilities and potentialities. Then go get your Bible and read Revelation 13!
Due to my personal research over the past 13 plus years, I find it even more fascinating that Telefonica is the communications company that was headed by Javier Solana's older brother, Luis Solana for many years. Luis Solana was reportedly the first Socialist to join the Trilateral Commission.  From the years 1977 through 1982, that corporation he headed had a virtual monopoly over Spanish and Portguese speaking countries' communications.
"If all objects of daily life, from yogurt to an airplane, are equipped with radio tags, they can be identified and managed by computers in the same way humans can. The next generation of Internet applications (IPv6 protocol) would be able to identify more objects than IPv4 which is currently in use. This system would therefore be able to instantaneously identify any kind of object.
"The Internet of Things should encode 50 to 100,000 billion objects and follow the movement of those objects. Every human being is surrounded by 1,000 to 5,000 objects.
The planned all-in-all system has several tentative names: "Ubiquitous Computing"; "Internet of Things"; "Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing"; and Internet of Senses.
A search of today's news stories revealed that it was known as an EPCglobal network. An internet search revealed an updated "Big Brother Revisited" report expressing concerns. I noted with no small degree of interest that Quaker.org was sponsoring a Statewatch speaker and issuing a report. As the Quakers have long tilted New Age -- it substantiates my thinking that Javier Solana's new order could well be a cruel joke on even the New Agers themselves! Here is a link to their report. I also found internet reports directed to Javier Solana on the subject.
Basically, it calls for all things by definition to be interconnected. This is also consistent with a primary tenet of the Alice Bailey books, material I have read many times contained in THE EXTERNALISATION OF THE HIERARCHY by Alice Ann Bailey. "Everything is interconnected and related" -- a key teaching, she said, for the world to accept their New Age "Christ" and the "Masters of [er, ah] 'Wisdom'".
Hardly surprising to me, I have read that the EU has been a primary mover behind this. Here is a report to Javier Solana himself on the subject. What a surprise -- NOT!
Daniel Taylor has compiled materials that must be considered. You may read him by clicking the underlined link. He reports that the European Union is getting ready to push for a greatly locked down internet -- one that will presumably curtail our freedom to report the news. This is a link to his excellent November 2008 article on same.
It appears from my cursory research that the Obama administration and US military may be fully on board as well.
At any rate, this is disturbing and VERY SOBERING news. Pray that we might be counted worthy to escape these horrors. Pray that we are granted the grace and strength to stand against them.
"Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of tempation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10 (KJV)
