BIOLOGICAL AND ARTIFICIAL “NEURONS” LINKED

BIOLOGICAL AND ARTIFICIAL “NEURONS” LINKED

If you're following the wonderful wacky world of transhumanism, you'll be interested in this story spotted and shared by V.T. (and as always, thank you to all of you sharing articles). The reason? According to the article, technicians took another major step forward toward the transhumanist goal of merging man and machine, or to be more specific, the human brain and computers, by creating a network of biological and artificial neurons, and getting it to work:

Scientists Linked Artificial and Biological Neurons in a Network—and Amazingly, It Worked

What happened is, indeed, breathtaking when one considers what has actually happened:

Scientists have linked up two silicon-based artificial neurons with a biological one across multiple countries into a fully-functional network. Using standard internet protocols, they established a chain of communication whereby an artificial neuron controls a living, biological one, and passes on the info to another artificial one.

Whoa.

We’ve talked plenty about brain-computer interfaces and novel computer chips that resemble the brain. We’ve covered how those “neuromorphic” chips could link up into tremendously powerful computing entities, using engineered communication nodes called artificial synapses.

As Moore’s law is dying, we even said that neuromorphic computing is one path towards the future of extremely powerful, low energy consumption artificial neural network-based computing—in hardware—that could in theory better link up with the brain. Because the chips “speak” the brain’s language, in theory they could become neuroprosthesis hubs far more advanced and “natural” than anything currently possible.

...

The three-neuron network, linked through artificial synapses that emulate the real thing, was able to reproduce a classic neuroscience experiment that’s considered the basis of learning and memory in the brain. In other words, artificial neuron and synapse “chips” have progressed to the point where they can actually use a biological neuron intermediary to form a circuit that, at least partially, behaves like the real thing. (Emphases added)

If you're a regular reader here, or have read my and co-author Dr. Scott DeHart's Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas you'll recall that one goal of the transhumanists is to re-create that rung on the alchemical ladder that represents "mineral man," i.e., the merger of man and machine. Transhumanists speak of downloading a person's "neural net" to a computer, storing it, and then uploading it (perhaps) into a clone, or a robot, thus allowing a kind of virtual immortality.

Here comes some more high octane speculation. In that goal, transhumanists are focused on the human side of this merger. However, when reading stories such as this, it becomes apparent that the technicians and scientists involved in such research are focused as much, if not more, on the machine side of the merger. This leads me to my high octane speculation, for the research suggests that if any such merger is possible - as the current article suggests - then it leans more heavily on the machine side than the human one, and thus, one may expect that computers will be "tweaked" with biological additions, than humans will be with machine ones, leading to the idea of the "biologically" or "neuronally enhanced computer" as an interim phase or step to the "computer enhanced human."

And that interim step, as Mr. Elon Musk suggested years ago, may not be an interim step, but a final one, for a distributed network utilizing the internet, and such "neuronal enhancements," might indeed become some kind of quasi-conscience, independently acting entity, a "global brain" with the internet for its "circuits", distributed everywhere, and centered nowhere., a beast which can only be turned off by removing electrical power, and dismantling the circuits that enable its existence...

See you on the flip side...

  1. Please no more Elon Musk worship. The man is simply a charlatan and has been all the back to lying about being accepted at Stanford.

    After my Awakening only 5 1/2 yrs ago…..it has been interesting to try to connect all the dots after my narrowminded religious upbringing!! 😉

    Seems to me if we start with the premise that each of us is already an Eternal, Sovereign Being having a physical experience…..then what these people are trying to do is copy what is already the True Reality of what IS……each of of us is ALREADY a part of The One, therefore a part of whatever The Whole IS!!

    Why the need to duplicate what already exists??? I have found the work of Billy Carson most enlightening…….was it Set that put his consciousness into 3 different beings down thru’ the ages???

    The sum total of it all??? I AM!! 😉

    Realizing the existence of the imperial hive mind, is man waking up, to see the papal Satan, and his brainwashed slave followers. Throughout history, the empire is the Satanic manifestation.

    Classic Doctor Who is revealing. Cyberman is the bureaucrat, the Baal worshipper. Dalek is the moneylender, the Moloch worshipper. Zygon is the feminist, the Astarte worshipper.

    The ancient solution was to torch Sodom and Gomorrah, and begin selective breeding, to avoid bad blood, a precaution that eventually failed. Today, the Runes are the program, to destroy the empire.

    The Runes are a closed system of natural principles, that alters the brain, in alignment with blood of kin, therefore Cyning.

  4. ..”You will be assimilated,”. . . resistance depends on the construction of the neuro-network the Borg manufacture and whether the hive mentality of the competing Wraith queens approve. . . Better be flawless! . .

  5. Pick your version of Hell the state alchemist of the Fullmetal Alchemist universe with their Homunculus. The Borg of the Star Trek universe how about the Cybermen or Daleks of the Dr.Who universe. When will these children finally grow up never it seems.

  6. A circuit you say?
    A global brain?
    Didn’t Gabriel Kron say something about all circuits being as one?
    Or could be configured that way?
    And now we are applying this to a human being?
    This is like The Borg and their hive mind.

    Far more advanced? For whom, pray tell?
    Now “they” tell us artificial is really natural, when mixed together[… where by an artificial neuron “controls”
    a living biological one…
    [“they” have climaxes when “their”control ups its game]
    Then their artificial is really natural when mixed; becomes… far more advanced and “natural” than anything currently possible. [Except, of course, when controlling nearly all the narratives by “their “natural” human media monopolies].

    Ok. Lets step back to the glory days of “flow”. What is the flow state? An optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best[remember, not my definition; their definition]. It’s a state of peak performance, that’s producing all six of the chemicals[the dopamine crew, brain’s primary natural pleasure drugs]. Oh, and this flow is achieved by entering a VR world. You see VR[virtual reality] is the full cocktail of feel-good neurochemistry, hard drugs delivered via headset[chips coming soon/like today’s post?]. And that’s just the tiny weeny baby steps. Tomorrow’s going to be out of this world[and into virtual cyberspace?]!
    Flow science & VR are converging.
    What this means is that the ability to create these alternate realities that are both pleasurable and meaningful will replace our so hum drum current reality.
    Oh forgot…
    These brain drugs like dopamine, make us feel an engagement, an excitement, a desire to investigate, to make meaning out of the world.

    I could go on about the VR world where humanity is moving in vast numbers and making money like that 2nd City millionaire w/virtual money that’s convertible. While humanity works and play in VR land; robots, AI and 3D manufacturing “live” & work in the “real” world.
    But the VR world is heading into the kinder version of that Star Trek meta-intelligence, The Borg in the cloud.

      Debated orgasms or climaxes.
      Both were probably AI verboten.
      Unless AI’s already meshed w/the living biologies and controlling the monopoly narratives, including this ghosted post.

      [above biologies is underlined in misspelled red]

    Plans by cosmic critters have been building for a long time.

      Daniel 2:45: “Stone cut out of mountain without hands” is the vegetative seed (stone), that “draws sword from stone”, in vegetative resurrection (sprout).

      Solving the Rune poem – from the Druidic sundial – is applying grassroots democracy of natural principles, that break down the imperial parasite.

      Samuel’s anointment of flawed kings was always the problem, since the first was disobedient, the second was jealous, and the third was greedy.

      Runes apply science, in selection of cyningas:

    In church architecture, apse is extension of choir, that originally is Chora of chorus in amphitheater.

    Therefore, the hub of sundial is central synapse in the Runic brain, and son of Kairos is a state of mind in center of Chora.

    Since rynstafas (runes) are derivatives of sundial, deified as Yahweh, their diametrical oppositions balance triad in center.

    Center of brain is third eye.

  11. Imagine the earth as a white room, no pathogens of any sort. Finally disease and death defeated. Only machines are alive, the humans are gone…transcended by transhumanists.
    Glory be to the scientists, their work be done. The triumph of the Devil reigns supreme. Oh humans you know not what you do.

  12. There is an ‘assumption’ in transhuman man-machine interfacing that man will be on top; the final decision-maker. I believe that is an unwarranted assumption, especially if we are dealing with an ancient AI (Earth-based or alien).

    A couple of old comments on this subject (the whole comment-column is interesting):

    In addition to those musings, there is the metaphysical side. In some SF stories, the AI is aware that it has no Soul, and is basically trying to “backdoor” a Soul for itself. By blurring the boundaries of what it is to be human, the AI hopes to entice/entrap a Soul which would normally not be interested in ‘interfacing’ with a silicon-based being. “Using a biological neuron intermediary to form a circuit that, at least partially, behaves like the real thing” could be an example of this blurring, when scaled-up to a complete-identity ‘circuit’…
