Artificial Intelligence is an oxymoron that suggests that a creation of man can exceed the intelligence of its creator. This has also been the Biblical debate of the ages: If God created man, can man become more intelligent than God?
The science fiction proposition that brain implants can deliver computer assisted knowledge that can achieve superpower status is just that: science fiction. Technocrat dreamers believe they can do anything that their minds conceive, and when they find that the reality falls short, they fake the experience and call it real. This article reveals that the dream-machine is alive and well, and still spinning out scientistic propaganda. ? TN Editor
Brain-boosting electrodes will soon become "like plastic surgery" as all we race to get cybernetic enhancements.
Humans will be turned into cyborgs — with scientists sticking AI implants deep into their brains.
Brain-zapping electrodes have treated seizure patients with promising results, and bizarre and unexpected side-effects of calmness and positivity means they are now being probed as a radical treatment for depression.
It's even theorised that the electric implants can be manipulated to make users max out their brain power — similarly to how amphetamines like Adderall are abused today.
Science power couple Kelly and Zach Weinersmith explored the exciting advancements in their brand new book "Soonish – Ten Emerging Technologies That'll Improve And/Or Ruin Everything".
The pair reckon that brain-boosting electrodes will soon become "like plastic surgery" — with people spending shedloads in order to become smarter and stay ahead of the pack.
One in four top academics currently abuses amphetamines, according to the Weinersmiths.
"As brain-computer interface technology becomes more reliable, it may have implications in many industries," they wrote.
"An ideal brain-computer interface can make you smarter, better at remembering things, more focused, and perhaps even more creative.
"You can't think about the possibilities without the possibilities without picturing some sort of cyborg diaspora and yet given the opportunity to suddenly have a better memory, we'd probably all take it."
Even weirder is the possibility of a human hive mind — we will be able to share each other's thoughts like an army of ants working in unison.
Lab rats had their brains linked via a brain-computer interface in one set of experiments.
"The results do appear to be a sort of brain-to-brain connection," the Weinersmiths said.
"We don't know whether these lab rats were literally sharing thoughts, but their connected brains seem to get together and work together more efficiently.
"At some point in the future, it may become possible to literally combine minds with other people, either for recreational or business purposes.
