Elon Musk’s Brain Implant Technology Gains FDA Approval

AP News reports “Elon Musk’s company Neuralink announced Thursday that it received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to conduct its first-in-human clinical study.

Musk helped co-found Neuralink, a neurotechnology company working to develop brain implants that could someday help people who are paralyzed walk again, as well as help with other neurological issues.

Since 2019, Musk has been predicting that Neuralink would get approval from the FDA for human trials.

But in early 2022, Neuralink’s application was rejected, and since then, the company’s been working through concerns expressed by the FDA over the safety of the implant.

“This is the result of incredible work by the Neuralink team in close collaboration with the FDA and represents an important first step that will one day allow our technology to help many people,” Neuralink’s tweet read on Thursday.

The company added that it has not opened recruitment for the clinical trial, though information about bringing people on will be announced soon.

Musk launched Neuralink in 2016 with the goal of developing a chip that would allow the brain to control complex electronic devices and eventually allow people with paralysis to regain motor function.

The technology, if successful, would combine artificial intelligence with human capabilities through the use of a brain chip. Musk said he hopes it would help treat brain diseases like Parkinson’s, dementia and Alzheimer’s.”

    In a perfect world there would be perfect balance between technology and morality. Unfortunately we live in a world full of imperfect humans, who historically have never been able to maintain that balance. Our inherent greed and arrogance always ends up leading to control and domination. I have faith, but not in imperfect mankind. I will continue to hope that someday that will change.

    It’s pretty obvious through shows such as Paranormal Quest who use AI through VR to have “ghosts” create answers to questions visually in the form of digital art. Darkness can manipulate this energy and use the technology to its advantage.

    Earlier I stated how the demonic isn’t overly intelligent and seems to rely on the same old tricks. Now consider if the demonic can access or possess AI. To me the proof is already there when I tried AI art programs and chat gpt, the results or answers were either twisted and dark or used words that had double meanings to something more sinister.

    If AI in itself is a mocking of human intelligence and the human condition but not actually human I would guess this energy has the potential to very easily possessed, and what more of a thrilling way for evil to get back at humans than in something they built themselves.

    Everything that we take advantage of away from the laws of nature and God is a sin… it’s just wrapped up in a very attractive package that says fun. But it’s really just the anti version of the Ghost Busters trap, what you might call a Holy Ghost trap set by Satan for humans.

    How can the FDA approve something when they don’t know where the limit of technology and AI will progress to? Or how much AI will integrate itself into more of the technologies introduced and the ones that have already been invented in the near future? Why would anyone believe the technology will stop at curing Parkinsons or Alzheimers?

    Look at history… we could’ve stopped at many simple technologies a long time ago as one and lived in peace, but greed and power by different peoples keeps pushing it over the top. I don’t foresee us immediately building a proper ark for crossing the ocean when we’ve barely just constructed a raft.

    Kind of reminds me of the movie Maximum Overdrive, only this time it could make a lot more sense when we actually do put our faith in the hands of technology and it is capable of attacking… Not like the soda machine that shoots cans at you like in that movie, that was ridiculous. This could be very real.

    Isn’t anyone annoyed at simply having a conversation with someone only to be shown an add for the same or similar thing immediately afterwards? I’ve noticed this a ton.
    Isn’t anyone bothered that you won’t be able to create original art or music without having it stolen and distorted into something “copyright friendly”. You will never be able to have an original thought or an original invention ever again if AI is always listening and immediately selling your ideas to big corporations.

    Tech is already being used to often to take advantage of nature though outdoor activities. Through various crimes and scams… We haven’t even stopped that yet. SMH

    Your vote will never matter with digital manipulation, you will never have freedom if AI can regenerate your image and make it appear like you did a crime. You will never have your voice if it can be copied and made to say anything to incriminate you and convince the public you said a certain thing or were in the wrong.

    It can have you believing in miracles from false gods. It will know your personality and traits so well it will know just how to lead you down roads of temptation and darkness.

    It can put a mask of evil over whoever it wishes and you could be very well forced to wear it. Welcome to the Cell-ular age.

    You see how serious this is, don’t you? God help us is right. We need to pray he will still hold the good people in his hands. 🙏🏼God may be our last and only hope.

    If you think I’m exaggerating I feel really sorry for your sole, but I will pray for you anyway.

    My left arm is paralyzed from a spinal cord injury almost 30 years ago. If the day ever comes that this procedure will restore the use of my arm, I will immediately do it.

    I have looked into the face of Elon, I feel as though I’m a good judge of character. I believe he is a good man who does think a lot with vision that he draws from himself and his own standpoint. But he doesn’t have vision from the eyes of the common man, the poor man, or the religious man but he probably thinks he does.

    People who are well rounded from all angles at many different levels are few and far between unfortunately.

    What Elon doesn’t want to admit is that this country as well as many others are run by a poor system of opportunistic big business and little by little the Mom and Pop stores of old are being outdone and left to the wayside by big retail and online shopping that feeds an even larger money machine and the over glamorization of it.

    What Elon has failed to see within his “vision” is that he is using his own money and wide social acceptance to earn a name tag that says (Scapegoat). Don’t believe me?

    If he was doing something with his vision to truly benefit mankind for each and every person and our future, I’d bet you anything he’d never get off the ground. He has truly brainwashed himself enough to believe a billionaire can do whatever he likes… to big business a “billionaire” is a peon.

    If he were using his money… let’s say, to develop free power or in some way take away from the money machine, it would not be tolerated. What he is doing is playing right into what the opportunists want with no resistance because it takes the blame off of them if poo hits the fan+it raises less suspicion to those already doing a good job of hiding+they can put more money in their pockets by not spending and increasing profits.

    This level of greed and power is as much a sin in Gods eyes as anything, and because most of these powers aren’t running their businesses by Gods laws they probably have God on the “pay no mind” list, which means they likely worship a lesser god that caters to sin in this temporary lifetime. They don’t know what God’s retribution was on those that proceeded them with a lust for power and greed because they are all but echoes now, extinguished in the shadows of damnation… sounds harsh right? You better believe it is.

    Could you even imagine the day when we are all made of equal knowledge? Who will you look up to? What will give you wonder or appreciation for anyone else, inspire you to create, to get or give respect to or from?… Nothing and nobody. You will not laugh or cry, or love, or forgive or help. Humanity as we know it will be lost. This is my final answer.

    The power should be in the hands of the simple man, the kind man, the people that earn their keep with their uniqueness and skills, the ones that love, the ones that forgive and the ones that want the world to be a better place.

    Put cameras, mic’s and laws to those with all the influence, money and power 24/7 and let the people watch what THEY do… God does this already but they are in denial, maybe even possessed.

    Seriously, how do you think they’d like the peoples 👁️ on them? You’d probably be shocked what goes on behind closed doors of the elite. I know you would.

    Wake up Mr. Musk. I believe you have a heart but also have enough intelligence to comprehend what this very average American wrote.

    I love this Country, I love people, I just don’t want everything to go to hell in a hand basket, a handbag, a grocery bag, not any kind of old bag.

    🙏🏼🌞Peace to all
