We continue with part 2, where the ultimate goal of transhumanists is to create an inorganic-organic humanoid platform into which human consciousness can be downloaded. After all, the physical body has a limited life span; robots, androids, and meta nodes can last virtually forever.
The next step if the Utah Array chip which involves the “human cortex for brain-computer-interfaces.” According to Musk, the Utah Array is already in some humans “despite severe drawbacks.”
“Yeah, it looks like a medieval torture device, but is nonetheless currently used in many human studies! Not hard to be way better,” Musk stated on Twitter.
The governments of the Netherlands and the European Union have funded the first pilot study testing the Utah Array. It involves three human locked-in patients to communicate via the brain implant. Called “deafferent,” these patients are awake and conscious but they cannot speak and have no limb or facial movements. The study, slated for completion in June 2022, will gauge whether we can record and decode neural signals obtained directly “from the brain for control over a computer.”
Of interest, the Utah Array is brought to us by BlackRock, a cabal with more than $10 trillion in assets under management. CEO Larry Fink also happens to sit on the board of the World Economic Forum.
Another company, Synchron, is also working on brain chip implants and already has FDA approval. Apparently, they used two chips implanted against the monkey’s skull to send brain signals from the monkey through a 1,024 electrode transmission device. The signals are then decoded and calibrated; they predict what the monkey wants to do.
Neuroscientists at the University of Pennsylvania affiliated with Nia Therapeutics (Cortera Neurotechnologies) have implanted “hundreds of human test subjects” with advanced neurological devices based on wirelessly controlled nanotechnology. They are conducting a wide array of experiments on these humans within the DARPA Restoring Active Memory (RAM) project and other “neuroscience-related efforts.”
Finally, I also came across an invasive surgical technique called Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) involving the implantation of a neurostimulator in the thalamus. Boston Scientific apparently obtained FDA approval and DBS is now increasingly used as a treatment for essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Human guinea pigs as ‘Early Adopters.’
MuckRock, a non-profit collaborative news site, suspects unethical or illegal conduct being committed within the scope of UPenn neuroscience-related research projects. Interestingly, their requests for comment or feedback have garnered no response.
“The high-resolution neurological datasets being gathered via these experiments are being privately distributed to researchers at different institutions, often under the guise of epilepsy or brain-computer interface (BCI) research.”
(MuckRock also listed a link titled “Implantable Graphene Nanotechnology Investigational Device Exemption Approval Documents,” however the page is 404’d, and no one from MuckRock has responded to my calls or emails). But look at this: Nanotechnology for implantable sensors: carbon nanotubes and graphene in medicine
Following the exposure of Neuralink’s mutilations and cruelty by the nonprofit advocacy group Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM), humans came forward, claiming their brains have been messed with, without their consent. While it’s easy to brush these folks off as ‘crazy’, but are their stories so hard to believe, knowing now what we know about these research efforts?
Not all incidents reported by PCRM or individuals involved Neuralink. Most who have come forward do not necessarily know the entity or company behind their purported brain damage.
“I was the victim of human experimentation without informed consent,” Andy Pearson wrote to PCRM. “These crimes against humanity are being committed by the United States through federal agencies like the NIH, state agencies, and the top universities across the country. I cannot be the only one who is claiming these types of crimes against humanity.”
Mining The Mind: Cognitive Liberty & The NeuroTechnology “Revolution”
There’s a reason why transhumanists & Luciferian elitists like Yuval Noah Harari and others are telling us that we’re now “hackable animals” and that our days of free will “are over.” A neuro-techno future is underway. This is reconceptualizing our human rights laws and prompting the need for new ones.
Is anyone paying attention?
People are having a misguided glee toward the Metaverse during a time when cyber intrusion into our body and our mind is at an all-time high. The transhumanists want to read and monitor everything about you so they will know how you will react and respond, even before you do it. This will identify “Thought Crimes” aka 1984.
Several multinational companies including Google, Disney, CBS, and Frito-Lay are already using brain imaging for ‘neuromarketing’ to understand consumer behavior so it can elicit desired responses from customers.
“As neurotechnology improves and becomes commonplace, there is a risk that the technology could be hacked, allowing a third-party to ‘eavesdrop’ on someone’s mind,” writes a 2017 article in Neuroscience News. With advances in neural engineering, brain imaging, and pervasive neurotechnology, the mind and your thoughts will no longer be private. Neither will they be your own.
A brain-computer interface used to control consumer technology will put the user at risk of physical and psychological damage caused by a third-party attack through the technology. Will there be also ethical and legal protections against the data generated by these devices?
“The mind is considered to be the last refuge of personal freedom and self-determination, but advances in neural engineering, brain imaging, and neurotechnology put the freedom of the mind at risk,” writes Marcello Ienca, lead author and Ph.D. student at the Institute for Biomedical Ethics at the University of Basel.
The Neuroscience News authors suggest that four new human rights laws need to emerge – immediately – to protect against exploitation and loss of privacy: 1) the right to cognitive liberty; 2) the right to mental privacy; 3) the right to mental integrity: and 4) the right to psychological continuity.
These proposed laws would give people “the right to refuse coercive and invasive neurotechnology, protect the privacy of data collected by neurotechnology, and protect the physical and psychological aspects of the mind from damage by the misuse of neurotechnology.”
Potential threats that could be prevented by the right to psychological continuity also include new forms of brain-washing. Malicious agents, for example, could use neuromodulation to exert malevolent forms of mind control. Dr. Marcello Ienca, an affiliate member and lecturer at the Health Ethics and Policy Unit, Department of Health Sciences and Technology, in Zurich, Switzerland, gives a final warning:
“Science-fiction can teach us a lot about the potential threat of technology. Neurotechnology featured in famous stories has in some cases already become a reality, while others are inching ever closer, or exist as military and commercial prototypes. We need to be prepared to deal with the impact these technologies will have on our personal freedom.”
