THE BEAST COMPUTER
There are those technophobes who speculate that the Beast is a computer that will be set up by a future one-world leader. This computer is purported to already exist. One of its servers is online in Belgium. The computer is called "Beast 6-06-6." It was programmed to control all monetary transactions in the European conglomerate countries (EEC) who now function on one monetary unit called the Euro.
Many theorists have hypothesized that some time in our near future, the world will be dominated by one world leader who will run Earth through the Beast computer. No one will be allowed to buy or sell without the mark of the Beast in their hand (a money card or implanted microchip or fingerprint ID) or their forehead (remembering a PIN number or having a microchip placed within their forehead). People will, literally, be scanned at check-out counters, banks, etc.
