Collision of Worlds

While reading an article on Google Glass in Wired I was struck by one idea:

I wore the future across my brow… The future is coming to your face too. And your wrist. (emphasis added)

The “brow” is obviously a reference to Google Glass. The wrist is easily a reference to the iWatch. Both of these products are expected to be available this year. What struck me though was remembering the words in Revelation 13 about the mark of the beast:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. (emphasis added)

Google Glass and iWatch

The forehead and the right hand…

I thought of being more blatant by adding “666” to the image on or above the respective devices but my intent isn’t to disparage either of these companies or even to honestly suggest that such devices constitute the mark of the beast. (For one thing, the passage in Revelation 13 seems to imply a mark that isn’t removable.) My intent was to share the connection my mind forged while reading the Wired article.
