The US Navy has been in meetings to discuss highly controversial technology that could, one day, allow the government to track the movements of each and every one of us, according to The Sun.

A large number of naval officers visited the home of "transhumanist" Zoltan Istvan, who believes that all humans should be fitted with the microchips to boost either their brain power or enhance their physical attributes or both.

Istvan says that they discussed the possibility of implanting humans with chips that have GPS built into them.

The Sun was even shown some of the conversations between Istvan and Vice Admiral Wisecup, a retired member of the Chief of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Group, who has been dedicated to creating "revolutionary warfare concepts."

In one of the letters, Wisecup said that the meeting broadened “our understanding… of the merger of humans and machines.”

“Your personal perspectives were interesting and timely as we begin our research process,” he wrote. “You have had a direct impact on our viewpoints for future concepts.”

Istvan believes that by fitting humans with chips or computers into our bodies and/or brains, human life would be enhanced.

He even said that one day people might be able to live forever. He's travelled around America on what he has deemed an "immortality bus" that looks like a coffin.

“A bunch of navy officers came to my house and one of the main topics was this chip implant strategy,” Istvan said.

He said that the Navy is worried about soldiers entering the service who already have chips in them. They are "struggling to create policy" about the issues.

“You can imagine how challenging that would be if someone had a non-authorized chip implant on a nuclear base, so policy has to be created and created soon. I helped the US Navy do some policy work on this issue.”

It is unlikely that anyone involved with the Navy will be willing to say why they are interested in fitting humans with microchips.

But is microchipping humans a bad idea?

Istvan believes that microchipping humans could be beneficial. He claimed that it would allow parents to monitor children, and could even help people find bodies of murder or accident victims. He even mentioned Lane Graves, the young boy who was killed in an alligator attack.

“As a father of a two and five-year-old, I’m a big believer in the future that all children will get chipped, perhaps like all children get vaccines in the US,” he continued.

The same thing could happen to soldiers so that "they can be tracked."

“This technology has been used in various ways with animals for over a decade,” he said. “It’s crazy to me that we don’t develop it and use it in ourselves (humans) more, and especially in our children. I’m looking into getting my children chipped after this alligator incident and because as a controversial presidential candidate I have security issues myself to worry about.”

Microchips can be as small as a grain of sand, and will be virtually undetected when injected into the skin.
