As if solar-powered homes, and cars, and gigawatt factories along with his #SpaceX ventures werenโt enough already, billionaire entrepreneur #ElonMusk has another outlandish plan for humanity โ a wizard-hat you might say, for our brains. #Tesla and Space X are already redefining humanityโs future, but #Neuralink , a platform that would use futurist technology to augment our brains could alter our world even more.
With a 36K explainer showing us exactly how #Neuralink supported #brainhacking will work, Elon Musk has laid out plans to bring us to the future in a few short years. Among other claims, Neuralink promises to make human to human #telepathy possible. This news makes some very excited, but others are wary. Is Neuralink going to be bigger and better than Tesla, and Space X combined, or is it a sneaky ploy to convince us to embrace a #transhumanist future?
Musk has already laid the groundwork for this endeavor by saying that #artificialintelligence (AI) is smarter than us, and thereby dangerous, so we must become cyborgs to some degree ourselves to survive. He is arguing that we must merge with machines to continue human civilization. Sounds about as transhumanist as it gets, but before we assume the worst, letโs dive a little deeper into Neuralink.
How Would Neuralink Work?
Muskโs concept is shared with sci-fi writers like Iain M. Banks in his novels about a galactic civilization. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency ( #DARPA ) is also investing at least $60 million over the next four years to develop implantable neural interface technology. This program called the Neural Engineering System Design (NESD), aims to โdramatically enhance research capabilities in neurotechnology and provide a foundation for new therapies,โ at least according to DARPAโs website.
Muskโs Neuralink works much like the sci-fi version. In the sci-fi version, a mesh-like device called neural lace would be implanted in a person directly through their bloodstream, controlling the release of certain neurons that control thought. โ๐พMore in comments๐๐พ #Transhumanism
Those that search for that #divinespark of #conciousness will find it from whatever instrument they use... using the #senses or #eyes they will see the light of that spark in nature, creation, light, darkness and beauty... they will see manifest layers of that thread forming #creation ... they will see it within their #intellect ... those that look within their minds will see it reflected in their #mind#thoughts both light and dark... those that seek it within their heart will feel it as manifested emotions the purest of it being #divinelove ๐๐ผโค๏ธ๐โ๏ธ๐
