Micro World (Part 1)

The year was 2073 and the world was evermore evolving.

Disease was a thing of the past. Not that people didn’t still get sick but more that things like cancers, and major diseases such as heart and kidney disease had been done away with. Through the use of genetic engineering and microchip implants.

The implants are inserted under the skin of a human infant, in the nape of their neck. Its job is to constantly monitor and correct problems that occur within the human body. In some cases even notify health officials of injury and severe disease.

In the case of minor ailments, the microchip can produce antibodies that will fight things like the common cold or flu. It even has the ability to seek help for those with mental illness, should the need arise.

The theory is that thanks to these devices the human race is expected to live 20 years longer. But that has yet to be proven since this program had barely left the pilot phase that started just over 20 years ago and is now available to the public. Of course, by made available I mean mandated by the government. Just like those Convoy-19 or what is Covet-19 shots, so many years ago.

But just like all technology it is ever-changing and adapting to fit the world around it. These microchips will forever need updates and replacements as the host ages and lives their life. As of recent, it has become more apparent that asking individuals to update their chips or keep them up to date was even more of a task than when we asked everyone to come into pharmacies to be chipped.

Lately, there have been some interesting malfunctions in regards to the chips that threaten to end this project entirely, this is the story of one of those cases.

    Excellent! I loved how you set this up and Happy belated Top Story!

  • An interesting beginning just enough to pique my curiosity. Great job. On a side note sorry I've been absent for a while my personal life had a lot going on including fitting to this story another bout with covid.

    Hey!! You made top story!! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³

  • Stephanie Hoogstad5 months ago

    Nice prologue. I can't wait to see what kinds of malfunctions are going on with these chips. (I do not trust these kinds of implants as it is.) Congrats on the Top Story!

  • Alex H Mittelman 5 months ago

    Great work! I don’t want to be chipped, though, lol!

  • Real Poetic5 months ago

    I knew this one was coming! Congratulations!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ

    I think I need one of those chips right now Donna. I know that Elon Musk is way ahead of you on that though. This is a phenomenal story, great idea. Can you make some of it real right now, I would be grateful. Great job on this one.

    Cliffhanger!!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ©΅

    Reads like planned obsolescence. I can understand total preventative/productive maintenance, but needing something to get updated. Yeesh, that's a stretch. There are some tools which receive certain electromagnetic signals and they function just fine because they don't require any external source of energy. Check out Dr. Stone for some real science on an ear piece that was just meant for receiving and relaying messages through the air. If they wanted to, maybe not a computer chip, but a program nonetheless in binary starting a manufacture sight of antibodies. The factory would work based on the binary as DNA like binary is all about repetitive pattern.

  • I was still feeling so sad after your last piece regarding the deletion of your story! Then I saw a notification that you have a new story and my mood was immediately lifted! The implants reminded me of the implants in L C SchΓ€fer's Glass Dolls series! No don't worry, her implants and your implants have totally different functions and your stories are not the same. Just that the word 'implant' made me think of her series because I just recently read them. I'm so happy to hear that your implants are malfunctioning. Lol! I love when things go wrong. Can't wait for the next part!

    I'm completely hooked! I eagerly await the next installment of this series, Donna! Loved your exploration of how people are unlikely to actually follow through on their updates and replacements. Even if they're benevolent

  • Mark Gagnon5 months ago

    It's a great story line but big pharma would never let it happen. A chip like that would put them out of business. Looking forward to seeing where you take it.

  • Rachel Deeming5 months ago

    Ooo, my interest is well and truly piqued!

  • Donna Renee5 months ago

    The not-so-far-off future! 😲 I loved how you said "the host"...portents of things to come in this story?

  • Rob Angeli5 months ago

    Great reflection on our world! Convoy-19, etc. Interested to see where this goes!

  • Mohammed Darasi5 months ago

    looking forward to see where this one goes :)
