Gotta find a guinea pig somewhere, I mean they already tested real pigs.. now they need to test other pigs. I mean people. Can they implant Elon as a test? Clone him first obviously, they need a backup at least.

The neuralink subreddit is filled with guinea pigs, it's insane lol

I think a backup Elon (or a fleet of them) is exactly why he’s doing this. That old idiom about a man and his wealth (“you can’t take it with you”) may be nearing its expiration date. Imagine Elon-droids still utilizing that fortune 200 years from now, on Mars, in space, fistfighting Bezos-bot, the possibilities are endless

Sweet! Mars robot boxing. Judging by their space companies, I'll take Elon.

Bezos is likely lex luthor.

They'll open a facility in some country with terrible regulations.

The good news is that this is neuralink we are talking about. With the amount of monkey brains they went through the most likely outcome is a painful death, not eternal enslavement to twitter.

Yeah, I get the excitement there is for this tech, but it seems to me that even the slightest scrutiny reveals grave risks at practically every level from immediate health hazards to potential societal problems. I think there are some non-technological challenges that really ought to be addressed before we consider incorporating this kind of technology into our lives.

The fact that we don’t have a miracle cure that can cure neurons?
