The “Internet of Bodies” — The WEF’s Proposal to Control Human Behavior Through Authoritarian Surveillance
The central theme of the Great Reset agenda is the manipulation of human nature to advance globalist corporate-state power-merging and the erosion of individual rights and liberties-oriented policies.
“The Great Narrative” by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret doesn’t contain a single great narrative. There is a set of five interconnected narratives about technology, society, the economy, geopolitics/governments, and ecology/ climate change.
These narratives are designed to influence human behavior through pride, fear, shame, guilt, and greed in order to persuade ordinary people to accept the unelected globalists' objective for a major resetting of society and the world economy (while incentivizing governments and companies).

“Narratives shape our perceptions, which in turn form our realities and end up influencing our choices and actions” — The Great Narrative, Klaus Schwab & Thierry Malleret, 2022
The "you'll own nothing, and you'll be happy" philosophy requires public-private partnerships, a closer union of company and state, and public-private decision-making over the future of humanity which blurs the line between elected and unelected decision-making over the future of humanity.
The first step was putting the Great Reset into action in June 2020, which called for new social contracts, more powerful governments, and a newer kind of capitalism that would make stakeholders richer and more powerful while leaving individuals like you and me with absolutely nothing and no power to change it.
The unelected globalists' technocratic ambition for a Great Reset of society and the global economy is now presented as the Great Narrative for humanity, and they can do this without ever citing any real-world data to support it.
But why is that?
Because, according to the WEF's own (now deleted but archived here) blog post from 2015, "A good narrative soundly beats even the best data," and "In the battle for hearts and minds of human beings, narrative will consistently outperform data in its ability to influence human thinking and motivate human action."
“In the battle for hearts and minds of human beings, narrative will consistently outperform data in its ability to influence human thinking and motivate human action” — Davos Agenda, 2015
Likewise, the Great Narrative book by Schwab and Malleret asserts that "narratives affect our perceptions, which in turn form our realities and ultimately influence our choices and behaviors."
Two key lessons can be drawn from this to comprehend the Great Narrative for what it is:
The Great Narrative needs not be founded on any verifiable information, facts, or truth, but rather on an unaccountable globalist belief system.
The Great Narrative seeks to shape and control human behavior.
“A grand narrative functions to legitimize power, authority, and social customs.”
Authoritarians utilize great narratives to support their claims, and they accomplish this by asserting that their knowledge and understanding pertain to a universal truth.
While doing so, authoritarians “attempt to translate alternative accounts into their language and to suppress all objections to what they themselves are saying.”
A grand narrative that, for example, Marxism creates is that it fosters "a society in which all individuals can develop their gifts to the maximum."
The final sentence of Schwab and Malleret's book provides a reasonable summary of what the unelected globalists' Great Narrative for their Great Reset actually aims to accomplish:
“We must be prepared to change ourselves at the micro level and to have enough selflessness to accept new policies (in the broadest possible sense of the word) at the macro level.”
Which term, if any, is meant in the fullest sense? Change? Micro? Selflessness? Macro? Accept?
“The coming convergence of the physical, digital, and biological worlds is the defining feature of the Fourth Industrial Revolution” — The Great Narrative, Klaus Schwab & Thierry Malleret, 2022
To modify oneself on a micro level can indicate a variety of things, including altering one's thoughts, values, attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs.
On the other hand, it may also entail altering your biological and physical characteristics thanks to synthetic biology and gadgets connected to the Internet of Bodies (IoB) through so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution Technology.
Greater connection and the commonplace packaging of IoB in cellphones and appliances—some of which may collect data without the user's knowledge—will lead to a rise in digital surveillance of users across a range of behaviors, claims RAND.
Despite being well aware of the significant ethical issues raised by having "an unprecedented number of sensors attached to, implanted into, or eaten into human bodies to monitor, analyze, and even modify human bodies and behavior," the WEF favors widespread adoption of the IoB.
“It’s now time for the Internet of Bodies. This means collecting our physical data via devices that can be implanted, swallowed or simply worn, generating huge amounts of health-related information” — Xiao Liu, WEF.
The Davos elite "urges stakeholders from across sectors, industries, and geographies to work together to mitigate the risks in order to fully unleash the potential of the IoB," according to a WEF report from July 2020, knowing that the Internet of Bodies can be used to control human behavior while gaining access to the most private health, financial, and behavioral data of every person on the planet.
“After the Internet of Things, which transformed the way we live, travel and work by connecting everyday objects to the Internet, it’s now time for the Internet of Bodies,” wrote Xiao Liu, Fellow (whatever that is supposed to be) at the WEF’s Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. “This means collecting our physical data via devices that can be implanted, swallowed or simply worn, generating huge amounts of health-related information.”
If you think that the idea behind contact tracing apps is just for tracking people infected by viruses, think again. The RAND Corporation stresses that the IoB might also "allow a surveillance state of unprecedented encroachment and consequence," even while having access to vast torrents of live-streaming biometric data "could inspire advances in medical knowledge or behavioral understanding."
According to RAND, “Increased IoB adoption might also increase global geopolitical risks because surveillance states can use IoB data to enforce authoritarian regimes.”
This is the same environment, for instance, that enables the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to gather DNA information from its Uyghur population, enabling the totalitarian government to further surveil, arrest, and sterilize an entire ethnic group, among other heinous atrocities.
Look no further than China's social credit system, which, according to RAND, "uses enormous amounts of aggregated data, including health records, on individuals to determine their trustworthiness and to incentivize desired behaviors," to see how the IoB fits into the Great Reset that the WEF is eagerly pushing.
When a population is aware that it is being watched, it will adapt its conduct to fit social norms, and its residents will enforce social norms.
Though, the IoB is a tool that can be used for a variety of tasks, including revolutionizing healthcare for everyone, tracking and preventing global crises before they occur, our beloved Swiss think tank is very cautious to mention that below these perceived positive selling points lies nothing other than manipulating people's behavior to achieve the goals of the world's elite.
The WEF now actively encourages contract tracing apps, digital health passports (CovidPass), and the adoption of the IoB. (CommonPass).
Think again if you believe that contact tracing apps are just used to track sick individuals.
According to the WEF "Global Risks Report 2019," the CCP created an app using the same technologies that warns citizens when they are 500 meters or fewer away from someone who is in debt.
According to Chinese state media, the app has developed what is effectively a map of "deadbeat debtors," which reveals the debtor's precise position but does not appear to include a name or a picture.
The technology is therefore not only for monitoring the transmission of a virus, notwithstanding the WEF's superficially viewed altruistic calls for increased IoB usage and contact tracing to “benefit the greater good.”
Contact tracking is another instrument for total social control that monitors a country's supposedly undesirable or despicable individuals.
Consider contact tracing for social justice policing, which includes tracking chips implanted in human beings, not just in smartphones.
“Widespread IoB use might increase the risk of physical harm, espionage, and exploitation of data by adversaries” — RAND Corporation report
The RAND report also warns that “widespread IoB use might increase the risk of physical harm, espionage, and exploitation of data by adversaries.”
In fact, if state-sponsored hackers or criminal groups managed to get access to a medical device used by a prominent target, they could easily turn the device off and kill their intended victim. You no longer need to be CIA and issued a gun in order to assassinate someone; you just need to acquire access to the medical devices that are keeping that person alive.
In addition to the geopolitical dangers, the IoB could "create health result gaps, where only persons with financial means have access to any of these benefits," according to the RAND analysis.
Due to the WEF's dislike of one country gaining excessive influence, this situation is implausible. The WEF favors balance. It desires that all nations abide by the laws. It desires a technological utopia.
“Authoritarianism is easier in a world of total visibility and traceability, while democracy may turn out to be more difficult” — WEF report
As a result, the WEF and the Davos elite frequently demand for the IoB to be distributed and regulated evenly and equally around the world, but that doesn't imply the surveillance would end. In no way.
It simply implies that after consenting to the Draconian measures disguised as benefiting the greater good, everyone will be subject to equal surveillance.
The WEF Global Risks 2019 report states that the IoB is fundamentally reliant on gathering massive amounts of biometric data, which would "allow new forms of social control."
In a world with complete exposure and traceability, the WEF stated two years ago that "authoritarianism is easy, but democracy may prove to be more difficult."
As part of its Great Reset Agenda, the WEF now wants to take advantage of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and it has a lot of backing from the media, international leaders, and business titans.
The Great Reset was first proposed by WEF founder and director Klaus Schwab in 2014 (see above video), but he decided in June 2020 that this was the year to put it into action, since the coronavirus epidemic had created a "unique but short window of opportunity."
And it will take universal trust in the increasingly intrusive applications of developing technology for the globalized utopia of the Davos elites to become a reality, hence the Davos Agenda Meeting in 2022 took place under the banner of “rebuilding trust”.
Your bodily autonomy, physical privacy, and mental freedom may be compromised for the greater good if you are willing to accept that a global, unelected group of bureaucrats with headquarters in Switzerland has your best interests at heart. After all, it took the Great Reset 6 years and a global crisis to exploit in order to be put into action. Yes, that is how amazing that idea is.

One of the things that concerns me about these things is the immense pressure people will likely be on to adopt these 'upgrades'.
Social media is already a faustian bargan of entertainment in exchange for mind control, now people will be expected to be 'upgraded' in exchange for real or perceived productivity gains.
