MUSK LAUNCHES COMPANY TO INTEGRATE PEOPLE WITH COMPUTERS

Just when you thought the insanity of the modern age could not possibly get any kookier, along comes another billionaire busybody with another billionaire busybody-pet-project to make life more miserable for the bulk of humanity. But of course, that's not what he's saying. No, this time the "selling point" is even crazier than that, according to this article shared by G.L.R.:

Elon Musk Launches Company To Hook Up People To Computers

By this juncture, I'm certain most readers of this website, and of my book Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas co-authored with my friend Scott deHart, are aware of the transhumanists' plans to merge man and computer, to download and upload "personalities" from one clone to another, and, for the really ambitious, to skip the cloning part altogether and just "live inside a computer."

What could go wrong?

Well, I can think of a whole lot of things that could go  wrong; taking but one possibility from recent news memes from the lamestream corporate controlled media, this would obviously open up the whole procedure to the Evil Criminal Mastermind Supergenius Dr. Fu Manchu    Vladimir Putin and the always-byzantine-never-to-be-trusted-Russians-who-are-behind-all-the-hacking-in-the-world.

Apparently, however, Mr. Musk has thought of a couple of new "selling points" for the whole cyborg agenda:

In case revolutionizing the transportation and energy industries while colonizing Mars wasn't enough of a challenge for Elon Musk (or perhaps taxpayer subsidies for Musk's ventures in those fields have dried up) in his latest venture the billionaire entrepreneur now "wants to merge computers with human brains to help people keep up with machines." Specifically, the WSJ has uncovered that Musk has launched another company called Neuralink, which is pursuing what Musk calls “neural lace” technology, which is shorthand for a brain-computer interface and consists of implanting tiny brain electrodes that will one day be able upload and download thoughts. (Emphasis added)

And if "keeping up with machines" isn't specific enough, it's spelled out more specifically. First, there's the predictable "health benefit", followed quickly by avoiding slavery to machines:

And, the WSJ notes, somewhere in his packed schedule, he has found time to start a neuroscience company that plans to develop cranial computers, most likely to treat intractable brain diseases first, but later to help humanity avoid subjugation at the hands of intelligent machines.

Of course, the article continues by detailing the current benefits of neural implants in combating various neurological disorders, and notes that the "neural lace" and "virtual immortality" are a long ways away.

But my high octane speculation of the day concerns the selling point, for I suspect Musk has hit upon something that the vast majority of the public would buy into, notwithstanding the dangers that become apparent on just a little reflection on that selling point. Basically, that selling point boils down to "Buy our neural lace and protect yourself from rogue AI(s)." Presumably, however, if one wants to download and upload things to and from that neural lace, one has to be connected to some kind of network, and with that comes precisely the danger of "rogue AI," not to mention the Evil Criminal Mastermind Supergenius Dr. Fu Manchu    Vladimir Putin and the always-byzantine-never-to-be-trusted-Russians-who-are-behind-all-the-hacking-in-the-world. And all they would have to do to break down communications completely would be to implant a "Babel virus" to have us all making up our own pronouns and defining words any way we choose without regard to prior common usage.

Just a thought.

See you on the flip side.

  1. Followed Dana’s link below, very telling. Musk’s father was psychologically abusive. In an interview taking about his own children; It bothers Musk a bit that his kids won’t suffer like he did. He feels that the suffering helped to make him who he is and gave him extra reserves of strength and will. Yeah well, you know, heritability of traits is much greater than I thought. I mean, what are you? You’re hardware and software, right? So the difference between one person and the next must either be a hardware difference or a software difference. Well, then it must be the hardware that’s different.

  2. I’m going to take the Deep Time view on this:

    Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away, a species came to consciousness. Developing technology, they came up with a version of ‘neural lace’ and implemented it. Sometime down the road, they had their “Battlestar Galactica” (redux) moment when they discovered that not only was their technology hacked but THEY were hacked, also.

    Further down the road, the survivors summed-up what went wrong and determined never to have it happen again. They went into their DNA and scrambled their basic biology so-that ‘humanoid’-computer blends would be really hard to implement.

    Even further down the road, that civilization also had their “Battlestar Galactica” (redux) moment when they discovered that not only was their technology hacked but THEY were hacked, also. Their own cleverness had overcome their ‘safeguards’.

    Further down the road a bit more, those survivors summed-up what went wrong and determined never to have it happen again. They went into their DNA and soooo-scrambled their basic biology that ‘humanoid’-computer blends would be REALLY hard to implement.

    Spin and rinse a few more times…

    Is it any surprise that human-computer blends (at the thought level) are so d@mn hard to implement? Maybe our distant ‘ancestors’ were/are trying to tell us something…

    1. P.S. I’m putting my money on the ‘awakened human’ side. When you can do all the ESP-ish things, get out of SpaceTime and operate on it, and all the other goodies available with moving ‘up’ in consciousness, why bother with the limited/limiting consciousness of the computer world?

      Now, we just have to get there before WE have our Battlestar Galactica” (redux) moment and the civilization around us goes down. Hmmm. That might be the AI’s pacing item…

      The survival value of human intelligence has never been proven, and may in fact be more of a liability than an asset. Once a species reaches a certain level of intelligence, it has a survival advantage until such a point that it develops sufficient power to destroy itself and everything around it. And it may be, then, that it always does. The universe may be full of planets of which high intelligence at the high technology level has not yet developed, and also full of planets bearing the ruins of high technology civilizations that no longer exist.

        2nd try…
        The above was meant as a reply to Goshawks;
        despite AI or other nefarious instruments gone rogue.

      2. As long as people keep following tptb programmed reality – they aren’t able to “create” their own reality. AI is limited by its form, it’s limited by boundaries, it needs to work with matter. Spirit is our thoughts and thought is everywhere at every point in space simultaneously. We are the creator’s and have the power to create. Once the veil is lifted you can see the other side, all sides. The ptb are working overtime on programming their reality, built on lies and fear and serve evil and suffering because it’s what they are. It’s all a facade, they paint a picture and people create it for them. We evolve as a species together in unity as one, we find truth and ascend to highest knowledge and goodness. They can only create FAKE, fake news, fake medicine, money , wars, religion, education.

  3. No doubt the MLA will be completely on board with this: they will be able to program electrode implants to cause a mini-stroke every time somebody fails to use a gender-neutral pronoun!

    Earth’s crazy daydreamers are we,
    with blazing hearts and furious eyes; the unredeemed thinkers, the tragic lovers. A thousand suns course through our blood and visions of infinity pursue us from all sides.
    Form cannot master us.
    We have fallen in love with the essence of our existence
    and in all our loves that very essence is what we adore.
    We are great zealots and great deniers.
    Within us, we contain the cosmos,
    and without it we are nothing.
    Our days are fire and our nights a sea.
    Human laughter surrounds us.

    We are the heralds of chaos.

    -Yorgos Makris, “we few…” [1950]

    Part human/Part machine is a cyborg; and the main problem therein, is that cyborgs are the illegitimate offspring of DARPA & unfaithful to they’re origins.
    Remember, our descendants might well know when we failed to make a choice – if they recall there was a choice.

    In SCUM Manifesto they break it down thus:
    To call a man an animal is to flatter him;
    be a machine, a walking dildo.

  7. I’m always amused at the fact that these incorrigible dreamers like Musk, who place so much wondrous faith in technology to solve humanity’s problems, consistently entertain the possibility that the first action taken by a genuinely self-aware AI would be to immediately eradicate the noisome, vapid, self-absorbed, cancerous species that created it from the face of the earth.

  8. Take your pick the amnesia helmets of the Buck Rogers serials, Cybermen, Daleks of Dr.Who, Terminators, Cylons or STNG the Borg. Do these jerks know what life and living is really all about full spectrum slavery is all that gives these Godmen meaning. And yes the pod people of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers or the evil alien of Who Goes There.

  9. Our ‘gods’ could then beam their commands directly into our computer chips. Then when their is a cosmic war and their technology fails we’ll probably lament how the gods have left us and how we have to take responsibility for our own lives. Gives a whole new meaning to partaking of the tree of life and free will.

  10. As many sci-fi writers and philosophers of metaphysics have pointed out, it is entirely probable that advanced civilizations would die out eventually but their AI would live on, self-replicating, to fill their niche. So ultimately, life leads to a machine world (which however advanced, will never be true life).

    So, might it very well be — if one is open to the idea that mankind (and idiotkind, to be fully gender inclusive) is being influenced or even ultimately ruled by an alien hidden hand — that those aliens could very well be machines?

    It would certainly go a long way to explaining the lunatic embrace of something so obviously inhuman and dangerous as trans-humanism. The trans-humanist god is a machine.

    Oh, and I guess this means we’ll need yet another two genders — “manchine” and “fembot,” perhaps?

    And as for Musk, well I think he was incubated and raised on the same CIA pod farm as Obama.

  11. Soon the only place you will be able to find a sane person in the west is in a mental institution/re-education camp. Unlike the episode “Mirror, mirror” in the original Star Trek series it may be more difficult to hide in a world gone mad. Without signals from a neural network identifying each other by IP address it will be much easier to determine who is with the programme–and who is not.

    1. Speaking of Star Trek: the Next Generation, we have a “race” of beings called the Borg Collective. This wasn’t really a race as much as it was a hive of various races. The Borg had the habit of finding civilized planets and integrating them into the collective hive mind. The hive had to start somewhere. Perhaps that race had their own Musk, et. al., who developed their own neural lace and an AI took over. AI assisted evolution. Now that is a brilliant idea! Not!!!

    2. Today’s science fiction truly is tomorrows’ science. (And the apostrophe is placed correctly, for we may very well see multiple tomorrows in play as human civilization spreads throughout the galaxy.) If you want to see the future you might want to go to at the movies. Right now there are several competing “templates” being proposed with neither holding much promise. You can bet you bottom dollar though that some of these people want planetary environments to try out their ideas–where the survival of the fittest version wins.

  12. It’s becoming more obvious every day that Musk is just another Intelligence project. One designed to sell the total surveillance and control state to the idiot masses. Hence the hurried roll out of 5G and the Internet of Things with little regard to the safety of mankind.
    I’m in agreement with Dana here, there is something non-human, almost demonic, about all of this.

      MUSK is an acronym for something associated with the Dark side of NASA/CIA and other shady acronyms.

  13. Let’s go back to the Cosmic War scenario according to which present-day humanity was somehow created/engineered to act as a race of servants (sounds nicer than slaves). Now we have the anti-human cyborg/”AI” agenda. Who is pushing it? Well we have some names in the corporate and quackademic world. Who or what is pushing them? While we might have doubts about the actual feasibility of what is being proposed (why have implants when you can have EMF or scalar wave entrainment?). Now the anti-human aspect is much more blatant than in mere old-fashioned wire tapping to build control files. So we might take it a step further and equate “anti-human” with “non-human”….
