Just had some thoughts about neural lace that I'd like to run by you guys to try to add different ideas to how or what may be laid out in the future concerning this. Obviously to the people who have an IQ of over room temperature this is a game changer. Unfortunately, most of the ppl in the world don't have an IQ that high.
So, my first thought is..... I know chris says that Elon musk and ray kurtzweil may already have implanted this lace within themselves. Which could very well be true. But.... if they did this, there's no way that we the sheeple would get the same quality neural lace. I can't imagine that we would be privy to the same technology that could, in some people, make them smarter than Elon musk. He would have to know that the possibility of this being more compatible in some people, giving them an extra advantage could happen. Which could strip the power away from him. So this in itself makes me wonder if he really did implant this in him yet. Will he actually implant something like this inside himself, knowing the ramifications? He I said a pretty smart dude, I can't see him falling victim to his own creation. He would also have to know that this technology can be hacked eventually. So does he and his elite buddies get the best protection, the best encryption, the best firewalls? While we just get norton antivirus? Who knows, something to think about.
I'm also just wondering about the logistics of this. When you get your neural lace implanted, yes you get uploaded to "the cloud" or whatever they call it. Is it that you just know everything all of a sudden and your IQ skyrockets and you basically just get superpowers right away? Because I really can't see it working that way. The way that I see it, is that the neural lace is basically just the hardware, so you get that implanted, (seems at this point you've given away your individuality and humanity) and so you've got that done, so I imagine that you would have to start buying the "apps" that will give you the superhuman power. Example: if you wanted to learn martial arts, you pick the martial art you want to "upload" from the hypothetical "App Store" (matrix style) and pay for it, and now you know it. Does that seem plausible? I really can't see this being a one time payment just for the neural lace that gives you everything all at once. This begs the question if there's going to be "classes " of cyborgs, the same way we have lower, middle and upper classes, political class, religious class. Will they all get the same lace? I doubt it.
The only thing I can actually see this thing doing is enslaving humanity. I have it envisioned that they may put out an offer that if you get the neural lace now.... you'll get it for a super discounted price, making a lot of ppl get it right off the bat. When its first implanted, it races through your bloodstream, flows through your brain releasing dopamine and seratonin, muscles may grow larger, eyes may dialate a bit, ppl that were on the fence will ask their friends who just got the injection how it feels, and of course the friend will say it feels amazing, and I'm sure they will be smarter and their friend will feel that's all they needed to see, that it didn't initially kill them, so with fear of loss in mind, they too, quickly get the injection. But you can all see, when there is enough ppl that get this, there will be a shutdown. A button will be pressed. That's when everyone literally turns into a drone. With no empathy, no thought of their own, no individual conscience.
I think this will be heavily marketed to the younger generations as the older generations can see the potential dangers, and I think we really need to educate the young ones today, the children that are being born, up to 15 years old, because they are incapable of making a natural decision based on logic and wisdom and common sense. They will be heavily peer pressured by their peers, and... if there is a program to give these out for free at the beginning, there will be pressure from their uneducated parents. You know as well as I do that the masses will line up for this just like the new iPhone release, just like the h1n1 vaccines, and just like the newest Xbox. Without asking questions, without knowing what's in it, without knowing side effects, and truly without caring.
I have children that will just be under the age of 16 if this gets rolled out by 2029, so it truly scares the hell out of me. Especially since my oldest is super intuitive towards robotics and engineering. I will not be getting this, but trying to talk my kids out of this I believe will be impossible. And that truly saddens me.
Just a thought, what do you think?
