Elon Musk Is About To Turn Us All Into Spacefaring Cyborgs With Neuralink

ZeroPointNow's picture

Get ready for the future organic humans - Elon Musk is about to take transhumanism to a whole new level...

What's Neuralink and do we still get to have sex in the future?

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture called Neuralink, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company, which is still in the earliest stages of existence and has no public presence whatsoever, is centered on creating devices that can be implanted in the human brain, with the eventual purpose of helping human beings merge with software and keep pace with advancements in artificial intelligence. These enhancements could improve memory or allow for more direct interfacing with computing devices. -The Verge

It's pretty obvious what's going on... Musk knows that the Earth is doomed - not from global warming, but because the sun's output is decreasing and we're going to enter into another ice age. Expect 7 Billion humans to try and cram together around the Equator, competing for increasingly limited resources - leading to civil war, death, and a huge setback in technological progress as humanity struggles to simply survive. We gotta get the fuck out of dodge.

So - Musk is taking us to Mars! He's already mentioned nuking the atmosphere to unlock the Martian polar ice, which means all that's left is to pool all of Earth's resources and execute on his well thought out plans before it's too late. Not so fast! Our feeble human bodies which are designed to live on earth, not Mars... In addition to massive cancer caused by unshielded exposure to solar wind - which the earth's unique magnetosphere protects us from, human bodies will shrivel up in the low-gravity Martian environment, which is just 38% of earth's.

So clearly we need radiation resistant cyborg bodies controlled by our organic brains for now, and eventually Musk will figure out how to create a positronic brain into which we will eventually upload our consciousness and live extremely long lives. Fully functional, hopefully. Plus, as Musk says, we're going to need to be able to compete with AI - which will be able to think orders of magnitude faster than our clunky biological grey matter.

Also, consider this... If the human race becomes robotic - brains and all, we could conceivably build spaceships that would allow us to travel through vast distances of space over long periods of time. All we'd have to do is power down our brains, stow our robot bodies, then head towards the nearest habitable planet for a few hundred years at a fraction of the speed of light to see what's there. If we find another utopian Earth-like planet, maybe we can genetically engineer biological bodies again to repopulate humanity the good ol' fashioned way.

Then again, maybe Musk is just trying to test the limits of the simulation...

If he read the Bible he would know what is coming on the earth and he wouldn't have to spend all that money for nothing.  One of the many reasons Jesus is coming back very soon now is because of things like this.  He will set it all straight.  Are you ready to meet him?   You can be here.  ItsHisStory.com

I think Elon should hire Tila Tequila as his spokesperson so his ideas make more sense:

I have trouble determining if it's the "territorial imperative" motive, or the "dominance-control" motive.  The globalists want the globe (but is it that they want territory, dominance or both? - some overlap, but dominance seems to be key), while Musk wants the universe. In both cases, distractions are necessary - "keep your eyes on the shining ball."

Are viruses, malware, crashes, reboots and power surges supposed to magically disappear?

How do you know some of "your" software won't be erased or over-written by the machine?

Or is that the whole idea? Create a backdoor to make humans more controllable?

Robotic humans are probably much easier to achieve than AI with human conscience, artistic, relational and relationship abilities.

Screw that shit. Willingly become one of the Borg? I think not. Screw Musk and the flying saucer he rode in on.

Nonsense. They don't even know how language works. They says sounds mean nothing. There is no artificial intelligence. Billions spent for nothing.

This is like fitting a wooden wheel on a sportscar.

The human brain has around 80-100 billion Neuron's, connected by trillions of synapsys, in comparison the most complex microchip has at best billions of gates (and it takes 100-1000 gates minimum to approximate a neuron) with a far lower paralallism.  And fyi, I work as a microchip designer (although these days I work on fpga's rather than the cutting edge asic's, its all the same design process though).

Forget Musk and these cyborg dreams, instead go for Ben Carson, as he says - you have a brain.  And the human brain is easily the most complex computer in the solar system, and probably even the galaxy.

Every time I hear the name Elon Musk I feel annoyance.  He's a very effective flim-flam man, nothing more.  Very good at selling bullshit and conning people that are utterly ignorant of engineering...  He's a POS.

A smart person would be short-selling Tesla, given his stupid attempt to beat BMW and Mercedes Benz with an electric car.  Fucking DUMB.  What a moron.

Musk - and a few others - are in need of serious Adult Supervision.

Bored of this bluffer (hiding behind Clark's and Sagan's once-upon-a-time excellence).

So let me put it simple. The moment he invents new sex pose, I may contemplate his wording.

Till then, boring exclamations, boring businesses hope and enthusiasm ... boring poses.

Isn't that funny, he want to create a Matrix within the Matrix? - LoL

This guy took the wrong turn. He is maybe successfull but lost from a human perspective. 

Musk get out of your brain!

"Sun's output decreasing" link comes from a laughable source.  Just some short article making baseless assertions with no evidence or even explanation.  That first paragraph is filled with hyperbole based on nothing.  Trees start blooming in mid February now.  That wouldn't happen if Earth was cooling.

KISS THIS AND GO SCREW YOURSELF.

Strange as the venue was, Today I read a very long and in depth article about how Musk feels about AI and it's future on Vanityfair. He seems to be one of the sane ones on the subject of being careful and needing ethics in development of AI. He actually seems a bit afraid of it, which we all should be. He was instrumental in starting an ethics group to input into the science.

How can you imagine what a technology that is far more intelligent than you will think or do?

Liberty2012's picture

No more automobiles and dishwashers for a start. Very wasteful use of resources.

No matter how much of the mammalian abilities are simulated into the machine, it will still be a machine. It could only guess at mammals experience and values. It will understand from what is within itself - just as humans can only imagine what it would be like to be a machine. We can't even talk about it without giving mammalian attributes to it.

We have zero connection to insects and fish. Some of us have connected to the smartest birds.

Despising humans to the point of building "replacements" is the ultimate racism. It's irrational

Or turning humans into machines. It's hateful.

How prescient of Musk; to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations,

to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Sounds strangely familiar.....

How about stopping assholes who believe in omnipotent invisible men from trying to kill people who do not believe in the same omnipotent invisible men as a start?  Its a lot easier to build a space faring society without Zealots declaring Jihad on anybody who wish to explore the wonders of rational thought.

Scams perpetrated by Elon Musk types are only possible with government complicity. Without it he'd be on forced psyche meds.

Just the mention of DARPA should be enough to let every thinking person know that this has Racoon City stamped all over it.

Elon Musk is the P.T Barnum of our times.

There will be no space colonies.

He's just talkin up his company to gullible investors.

The NASA space program is the biggest scam played on Americans.

There are serious questions as if they even went to the moon.

Musk is a fucking one hit wonder, much like the other accidental billionaire, Suckerberg...and much like the code thief, he has the money to HIRE talent... but he cant even seem to manage that...I take this douche whistle about as seriously as I do Gartman...

This is America.  Musk is an entertainer.

Sorry, fuck head, I prefer the material world. 

Take all the politicians on board for a ride to Mars with you, though.

All the religious leaders, all the alphabet agencies, the IRS, and the DMV while you are at it.

The world will be a better place after you all are gone.

copy that silvergeddon   Elon Musk, a nano tech transhuman from the Tleilaxu axolotyl tanks who, along with his clonebro Lone Skum, a Hazmat stain in the gene labs come life, are just two cogs in the vast apparatus to separate the true bred organics from the neoplasm generation who wants to live forever, esconsed in metal bodies, fully equipped with a cyber neural interface with Sky Net.  They want maybe 500,000,000 true breds as slaves, worshipers and sex slaves.  Just like the Pharohs et al.

Why have neither ZH posts about this mentioned it's injectable!!! That's the only reason it's a big deal. No surgery required is scalable. Could eventually be a vaccine?

The research tested in animals from last year:

re: injection: if you read the article, it is injected through a SMALL HOLE, so technically it requires a surgical DRILL which isn't exactly a mere injection. read carefully.
