If you want to know what the military industrial complex is, it’s composed of these different structures: institutes of technology, benign sounding unheard of corporations, and other institutions that work in lock-step with defense contractors and the Pentagon. At the center of it there is the Pentagon’s mad science division DARPA.
DARPA has developed such things recently as self guided “smart bullets” that follow targets, several things pertaining to artificial intelligence, robotic, insect-like legs for helicopters to land on uneven terrain, ect. They literally created the Internet, formerly known as the “ARPA-Net.”
Now, as they pour funds into anything they want and corrupt academics and scientists with their unlimited money, they are trying harder to replicate the human brain and actually record information from inside the brain.
Reaching the deepest depths of invasive, it seems the future might see a technology that allows surveillance to literally penetrate people’s thoughts.
The Department of Defense chose a San Jose, California based corporation called Paradromics Inc. to lead 6 consortia it is funding with $65 million: to develop technology capable of recording one million individual neurons inside a human brain at the same time.
According to Technology Review:
“Recording from large numbers of neurons is essential if engineers are ever to create a seamless, high-throughput data link between the human brain and computers, including to restore lost senses.
That goal has been in the news a lot lately. In April, Elon Musk announced he was backing Neuralink, a $100 million company working on a brain-computer interface. Facebook followed up by saying that it had started work on a thought-to-text device to let people silently compose e-mails or posts.”
Many people think Elon Musk is a genius and put faith in him as well, but is he really trustworthy?
Which side of the transhumanism debate do you find yourself on?
