Deus Ex Machina aka “God from the machine” is actualising before our organic, currently unmodified irises. Would you or a loved one enjoy the novelty of neuralink? Described on their website as follows:
Our brain-computer interface is fully implantable, cosmetically invisible, and designed to let you control a computer or mobile device anywhere you go.
It’s not for me, dear readers. Your author will gladly be left behind, unenhanced, mental faculties intact, and under the sole control of consciousness, the spirit, and good old fashioned neurological brain biochemistry.
This is a long overdue article, following on from a piece I wrote on brain-chips and the buzz around legal eagles ‘needing’ the procedure, lest they get left behind - apparently.
Mod cons and safety concerns
Imagine a world, where instead of hype around the latest iPhone or operating system, the lemmings salivate over their next upgrade. Firmware and hardware, installed and hard-wired into their skulls. Implants connecting them to the internet of things, the internet of bodies, and a plethora of information, notifications, and stimuli.
Always connected. Forever engaged. Never truly present.
Before the recent FDA approval for neuralink’s human clinical trials was granted, the regulators had some concerns. A report by Reuters in March 2023 outlined safety issues with neuralink:
Migrating wires can induce inflammation, impair function in critical areas of the brain and rupture blood vessels, said Victor Krauthamer, a former FDA official for three decades, including a stint as acting director of the office that reviews human-trial requests for brain implants. A migration problem can also erode the device’s effectiveness, leading to the risk of surgical removal, he and other experts said.
Inflammation, impaired cognition (brain fog?), ruptured blood vessels too? This is Deja vu; a dreamy list of ailments not dissimilar to something else we were told was safe and effective.
There are also concerns over the intended lithium battery potentially damaging brain tissue. [Since all those spike proteins crossed over so many people’s blood-brain barriers in mass transhumanist experiment 1.0 - the Covid injections) - it just seems like a free-for-all at this point.]
Reuters had previously reported on the body count of animals arising from neuralink’s testing as follows:
In all, the company has killed about 1,500 animals, including more than 280 sheep, pigs and monkeys, following experiments since 2018, according to records reviewed by Reuters and sources with direct knowledge of the company’s animal-testing operations. The sources characterized that figure as a rough estimate because the company does not keep precise records on the number of animals tested and killed. Neuralink has also conducted research using rats and mice.
A total of 15 macaque monkeys out of 23 have died at U.C. Davis in a Neuralink-funded project titled “Development of a Large-Scale Brain-Machine Interface in Rhesus Macaques.” By now “the others may be dead too,” says Ryan Merkley, the director of research advocacy for the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
In addition to monkeys, Musk’s company whose slogan is “breakthrough technology for the brain” has also implanted Bluetooth-enabled chips in pigs and sheep in order to connect and communicate with computers via a small receiver.
Even more startlingly, Henein says she has personally been approached by people who claim they already have nanotech in their brains:
“I am getting abused…. I mean really really bad. I have a lot of tech in me; I have wifi chips in my ear and skull through which they are assaulting me horrifically with 5G, nano, and more.”
When I probed (no pun intended), he responded:
“You want definitive proof? Cut this crap out of me. Find someone to cut this wifi chip out of me.”
Don’t shoot the messenger. The goal is to test on humans so why is it so far-fetched to believe they’ve already begun?
The lure of altruism
Here’s where it gets tricky to scream into the wind, warning about hackable humans and mind control, whilst placating ethical and moral considerations surrounding life-changing improvements to help the severely disabled become able-bodied. Or at the least, being able to control their environment by using their minds connecting to devices.
Garnering public support for such unchartered territory as we move into the realm of human trials understandably zeros in on helping people with little to no mobility, with the promise of enhancement.
It’s difficult to argue against withholding such pioneering technology that could change the lives of those suffering a life of immobility.
Another incredible story from 26th May 2023, told of a man who had been paralysed for 12 years, is now able to walk again thanks to a brain-spine interface. The story from the Epoch Times via Zerohedge:
Put simply, the device restored the neurological link between the brain and the spinal cord, which is typically severed during accidents such as Oskam’s.
The device was implanted into Oskam’s skull, meaning it is not visible to the naked eye. When Oskam thinks about walking, the implant detects electrical activity in the cortex, the outer layer of the brain, and sends brain waves wirelessly to a computer that Oskam wears in a backpack.
The information is then transmitted to a pulse generator inserted into his spinal cord, effectively switching on muscles and allowing him to produce specific movements.
As amazing and uplifting it is to read about such a feel-good story, do we think the tech drive for mass adoption would stop there? It is reminiscent of the vax drive from 2021 to date. It starts off with the most vulnerable in society, then on to the next cohort / demographic / age group, and on and on, until we are brain chipping humans straight out of the womb, perhaps? For their safety…
We haven’t even touched on ‘Neuro-rights’ yet, which could warrant a separate piece on this topic alone. Quoting from an article by The Economic Times written in May 2021:
…according to experts in Chile, who have moved the security debate beyond burglar alarms to safeguarding the most valuable real estate people ever own: their minds.
The South American nation is aiming to be the world's first to legally protect citizens' "neuro-rights," with lawmakers expected to pass a constitutional reform blocking technology that seeks to "increase, diminish or disturb" people's mental integrity without their consent.
When life imitates art
Let us glance at predictive programming from Hollywood, subliminally seducing us into getting augmented. Whether it be a brain-spine implant, our consciousness uploaded to the cloud, or gaining superhuman abilities.
This is a well crafted dystopian sci-fi flick, in which the paralysed protagonist is offered the chance to walk again, following a mysterious invitation for a consultation with a tech billionaire.
The ‘upgrade’ is a brain-spine interface that gives the character - ‘Grey’ - full mobility and physically enhanced fighting abilities with one small catch. The chip comes with a sentient AI that has plans of its own.
Other scenes are relevant to forthcoming realities in our real world, such as driverless vehicles being hacked for the purposes of maiming and assassination. There is also a scene depicting bleakly dismal immersion into virtual reality, embraced by emaciated addicts hooked up to intravenous drips, so that they can spend hours or even days in a VR environment - think of Zuckerberg’s Metaverse!
Transcendence (2014) *mini spoiler alert*
The title of this film could just as well be ‘transhuman’. The plot could be the culmination of every transhumanist envisionment from neuralink to the WEF’s fourth industrial revolution.
Depp’s character - Will Caster - uploads his consciousness to the internet after being fatally poisoned with radiation sickness.
The most striking (and pertinent?) scenes come towards the end of the film. Will has had a brain-chip interface built into half of the townsfolk, where he has had a huge underground laboratory complex constructed, along with self-assembling nanotechnology-based solar panels on the surface (that can regenerate from being damaged).
In the penultimate scenes, a queue of local people stand outside the facility doors - at first we are shown disabled people in wheelchairs, blind people, and other afflicted. Then soon after we see healthy children. The chip cures all disabilities and ailments, gives everyone superhuman strength, as well as the ability to heal / regenerate from any wound.
Everyone who takes the brain-chip is connected to Will, who can control them to do his bidding.
Transhumanism end game
Immortality is the ultimate goal of transhumanism and eugenics. For the
elites parasite class. Tinkering with the useless eaters is both for sport and to research the path to realising longevity of life, knowledge, and power.
Maybe the mRNA injections were designed to find out what percentage of the public can tolerate repeated boosters and genetic modifications. The public will once again be used as lab rats to be experimented on with the brain-chips, to gauge enhancement potential, then eventually mind control feasibility, persuasion inducement, behaviour, and actions.
The funny thing is that before you show your normie friend that clip they'll call you a barking mad conspiracy loony and dismiss the very idea of brain chips, but after you show them that clip they'll give you fifteen different reasons why brain chips are an obvious and laudable evolution in technology.
They will then assure you that there's nothing at all untoward about the concept of WEF-approved tech being implanted directly in your cerebral cortex and that it's perfectly reasonable for Klaus Schwab to be talking about turning the human species into an army of brain-chipped cyborgs.
Finally, they will solemnly affirm that they will be the first in line to take the transhuman upgrades as soon as they're commercially available and that you must be an insane wing-nut if you wouldn't jump at the opportunity to be chipped by Klaus and his cronies.
Could you count on one hand the number of people you know that would likely take the chip? Would you need more hands? Are homo sapiens soon to be extinct?
