The Internet is the most amazing piece of modern technology and yet it came about in a simple fashion. During the Second World War the inventive brains worked to develop a decoding devise so that the enemy's plans could be deciphered. This was not the first as many came before it. After the war employment turned to industry and technology and machines came into their own, along with calculators and such.
The term 'computer' was first recorded in 1613 to describe a human. He is possibly the trigger for thoughts that a machine could be developed to do what he did. Over the next 400 years' various types of machines slowly came into play.
One can see by the series of events that the production of the communication device we now take for granted was part of a plan. As with any invention or progress it does not happen overnight and other things have to also come into play.
Along with the steps required to bring about the Internet others were developed to allow it. Some worked on electrical components, others on the telephone and wireless, still others on construction of cabinets to house them, and finally the technology behind televised images added to the mix.
Along with these innovations came other ideas. How to store information led to the development of memory while RAM allowed graphics and images. Companies started that brought the computer from the massive 'colossus' of the British decoding machine to that of the desk top in 1964 by Olivetti.
After that the computer was ready to become a household name. The first micro-processor was developed by Intel in 1971. That was quickly followed by the first micro-computer in 1973. Each of these machines came from people of different nationalities and situations, including the last from a Vietnamese-French engineer in partnership with a Frenchman.
The first personal computer turned up in 1975 and the first portable one, developed by IBM, later the same year. The first Apple computer arrived on the market in 1976.
With security a primary concern, the military of many countries worked on ways of passing information secretly via phone lines and then other devices. What they required was wireless transfer that could be coded and computers that could talk to each other without interference from outside influences.
In 1976 a couple of researchers named Kahn and Cerf published a blueprint of their idea of wireless transmission of information. Then it started working when a computer passed typed information and sent it to a source for transmission as radio signals. Picked up by an antenna they were then passed to another computer where it could be read.
The Internet was born and it is just 41 years old. All that was required after that was to use the phone technology to marry the two into the convenience of today's communication system.
Only the Spirit of the Universe, the real God, could do this by putting ideas into the minds of those who worked over four centuries and many countries to do it. My reincarnation and link to the Spirit has allowed insight into the plan that is so detailed in Old Testament prophecies. In there is a promise that at the end of the day God's mountain will appear and from it the world will hear and understand all things.
" In the last days the mountain of the house of God will appear in the top of the mountains and all people will flow unto it." Micah 4: 1.
Few will dispute the fact that we have reached that time and the Internet is the tallest mountain in the world. It is the place of teaching and the depository of history from virtually man's arrival on earth. Bit by bit over the last few millennia progress has taken us from hunter-gatherers into people who can talk to others anywhere in the world instantly.
It has also drawn interest from all who are flowing to it with their mobile phones, tablets, computers, and other devices. The wars fought over have given us incentive to do things better, which explains why they happened. Other things like disease, famine, and natural tragedies have all added to the development of our current systems.
God is talking to the world through these words and others listened to by the billions who can now tune into them. Terrorists and those who intend to destroy everything are part of the framework to deliver the final blow. We don't know when it will happen but like the Internet the promise will come true.
