Elon Musk might announce Neuralink any day now…
What is Neuralink? It is a way for our brains to directly interface with the machines. Essentially, it’s a way to merge with AI Technology and allow the human brain to take on some of the characteristics that we would typically associate with Artificial Intelligence algorithms.
Elon Musk has been quietly developing Neuralink in some secret laboratories as his way of helping the human species survive our encounter with AI Technology. Elon Musk believes that we must join with the AI rather than try to beat them. From his perspective, this is the only way forward.
I tend to agree with that sentiment. Merging with AI Technology is clearly the most beneficial and “safe” way forward. At this point in human history, we can either destroy AI technology, be destroyed or replaced by it one day, or we can merge with the AI through a modality like Neuralink.
Oddly enough, all of this coincides with some profound psilocybin mushroom experiences I had years ago. On those experiences, it was revealed to me that the human species was evolving and that soon a sort of technology would arrive that would allow us to have more instant access to the internet… Essentially, hyper-accurate cliff-notes for all content.
This seems to be Neuralink.
When he was on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast, Elon Musk explained that there’s two problems with the merge with AI Technology: bandwitdth and user interface. In other words, we had to solve the issue of speed of how quickly we can gather data… and we also have to give ourselves a platform or portal via which that data can be viewed, collected, and engaged with.
He said Neuralink seeks to solve the bandwidth issue.
Ever since the experience with the mushrooms, I’ve been working with a team on the user interface piece… unknown really to the details about Neuralink.
Here’s the thing: it’s not just me.
Since starting on this journey, I’ve encountered many who are developing similar platforms… All of us heading towards some sort of light at the end of the tunnel. We are always bouncing around ideas and collaborating where possible as we head towards this supposed end-state.
The collective species is evolving. Neuralink is the missing piece of the puzzle that will jumpstart the human species way beyond Homo sapiens.
