Elon Musk has been making headlines once again amid his recent Twitter acquisition. Woke brigades are slamming the shareholder and claim he is ‘extremely dangerous to our democracy‘. Supporters believe the billionaire will swiftly restore free speech to platform users. Simultaneously, the polarizing investor remains focused on his plethora of business ventures. From autonomous electric vehicles to 5G-beaming surveillance satellites, the entrepreneur undeniably keeps busy. While most of society is intentionally diverted with ever-evolving social media news coverage, something far more important continues to insidiously progress. An unprecedented cerebral fusion of organic biology and artificial intelligence is transpiring behind closed doors.
Neuralink Corporation was launched by Musk in 2016. The company is developing ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces which connect human beings and computers. Such a feat will supposedly endow mere mortals with previously unimaginable abilities. These robotically-inserted microchips aim to one day restore vision loss and mobilize paralyzed individuals. Complex math equations could be solved in milliseconds. Downloadable languages would instantly enable recipients to speak any foreign dialect. However, theory and practicality are two entirely different entities. All that glitters is not necessarily gold. Seemingly benevolent gifts can be utilized for nefarious purposes. Some of mankind’s most horrific atrocities have unfolded beneath the guise of altruism.
As the Tesla CEO inches closer to mass cyborgenic production, preliminary trials are currently underway. University of California faculty received $1.4 million in funding from Neuralink to conduct studies on primates. Researchers drilled into the skulls of cognizant monkeys and electrodes were inserted into their brains. Freedom of Information Act documents obtained by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a national nonprofit comprised of 17,000 doctors, provides disturbing insights into these gruesome experiments. The sentient mammals endured highly invasive and agonizing procedures. Protocol directed scientists to restrain uncooperative animals with a steel rod screwed through the cranium. They suffered from rashes, seizures, facial trauma, severe infections, esophageal ulcers, and brain hemorrhages.
