1 min readElon Musk shows off Neuralink’s brain-computer interface using pigs

We have come to the point where the human being is starting to play god, creating devices in the hope of creating more intelligence.

In an update released August 28, 2020, Elon Musk has finally showed the world what Neuralink can do. Featuring the three pigs Joys, Gertrude, and Dorothy, Musk hoped to show how safe Neuralink is, and how it interacts with live neurons.
Even though the pigs are happy-looking and normal-acting, some experts are not convinced. Timir Datta-Chaudhuri of the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research in New York say that the presentation does not prove that the devices are safe. “They downplayed the potential damage to the brain, but the damage is sometimes not easily observable even in humans, let alone pigs.

Editor’s Note: We have come to the point where the human being is starting to play god, creating devices in the hope of creating more intelligence. The problem with Neuralink is not only with its safety, it also disregards the other capacities of the human mind which goes beyond the physical.

If the brain is manipulated to host an artificial device, it could affect how the brain, being a receptor of unseen signals, receives data from non-physical realms [see Updates to the Orch OR theory of consciousness to understand this statement better].
