In the world of Star Trek, specifically Star Trek, the Next Generation, the Borg are a fictional pseudo-race of cybernetic organism. They use abduction and “assimilation” i.e. forced cybernetic enhancement and connection to the hive mind as a means of “achieving perfection”. In their “mind” it is for your own good that you assimilate, give up your individuality and honor the “common good”.
Although the Borg are fictional characters in a fictional world we are surrounded by this sentiment in the real world of 2012. And to that I offer a very loud…raspberry!
Pronunciation: ‘raz-“ber-E, -b(&-)rE
2 : [short for raspberry tart, rhyming slang for fart] : a sound of contempt made by protruding the tongue between the lips and expelling air forcibly to produce a vibration; broadly : an expression of disapproval or contempt .
As a Believer in the One true God and His Son Yeshua/Jesus I have no other choice but to resist assimilation into the 2012 collective hive mind whether it is politics, social morals, the media manipulation of beliefs and accepted practices and the general dark dogma I see everywhere these days. You see, I know first hand that resistance is not only NOT futile it is required.
7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
At the end of the movie The Matrix the character Neo makes a final statement to the powers that be – i.e. the Matrix – ” I know you’re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you’re afraid… you’re afraid of us. You’re afraid of change. I don’t know the future. I didn’t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it’s going to begin. I’m going to hang up this phone, and then I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see. I’m going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you. “
Neo proved that resistance wasn’t futile. It was required.
I will disagree with Neo on some points. The real architect of the Matrix is the fallen cherub we call Satan (the adversary). Satan is too psychotic to be afraid of the outcome of his actions. I do however know his future and the future of his cohorts. It involves a lake of fire, some chains and a deep dark pit.
His world will end as predicted and we must stand in resistance to his plans on every level!
But, just like Neo, I will continue to work show a world without him in it! To do that I will remind you of this weapon of resistance that helped to do that.
