Digital Fears Of A New World

CAPTURED by DEATHZ HEAD A.K.A. THE CHILLER on Monday, April 16, 2012 at 3:13 AM

One thing that nobody wants to think about is something I saw in a movie once. In the movie "Johnny Mnemonic" Henry Rollins played a doctor describing a virus that infects people through inanimate objects. I'm guessing that would require some sort of nanotech to really make possible. This fear is real and even in games it's been highlighted. In "Deus Ex: Invisible War" for the Xbox they mention a nano storm that carried a new sort of virus. In another game, "Nanobreaker"...


One thing that nobody wants to think about is something I saw in a movie once. In the movie "Johnny Mnemonic" Henry Rollins played a doctor describing a virus that infects people through inanimate objects. I'm guessing that would require some sort of nanotech to really make possible. This fear is real and even in games it's been highlighted. In "Deus Ex: Invisible War" for the Xbox they mention a nano storm that carried a new sort of virus. In another game, "Nanobreaker" for the PS2, they use nanotech to create a nanite that helps clean the blood only to end up taking over the blood cells and create a monster. That monster was able to thrust its hand into a tank and have the claw come out the others side to grab a soldier. That's really scary tech. If ever came a time when people could contract a virus through an electronic object bought at a store then I would be scared. In that same movie aforementioned were also t.v. pirates that would show up and blast a message just like on "Dark Angel". That's a hard future to imagine when there's all this higher technology all around and still people living in poverty just like now. Some things don't change. Nanotech is indeed capable of changing the make up of an object by either permeating it with something or implanting some kind of bad nanite that could pass through to humans. It's a freaky idea that only higher technology could create. And we thought the future would be free of so many things, when in reality it may get rid of some while creating new fears. That would be hard to counter too because you'd have to create an antidote of nano origin to fight it. And in that same world if someone was downloading to their brain the fear of a computer virus would be real. The outcome of which could be quite fear inducing, as seen in "Strange Days" when a guy gets his brain fried and sees just digital fuzz. Ouch!
