    Was thinking about how Neuralink maybe able to directly transmit thoughts to one another (last bit of the video is on this). Do you think this is possible? If so, how would it change us? Would we be more empathetic? I'm a little skeptical

    Not a chance. We all need something to STOP our thoughts being directly transmitted to others.

    hell man
    I still think of a telephone as that thing that hangs on the wall in the kitchen with a rotary dial

    if you could read my thoughts, we'd most likely both be insane
    and, then, add in millions of other's thoughts in many different languages, and
    its the end of the world as we know it

    people are attracted to looks, style, fashion

    what it looks like will probably be dominated by what people want it to look like.

    good example
    cell phone sizes
    they became ultra small
    then people realised they didn't want a small cell phone
    then people wanted to have larger video screens on their cell phones and face to face became the compulsory standard
    the personal nature of the cell phone makes it a personal item

    like someone underwear and equally as private if not more

    lol
    nuclear weapons of communication
    what happened to the global chemical and biological weapons race ?
    what happened to the global nuclear weapons race ?

    you have very good reason to be nervous about its development and deployment

    universal health care would seem a mandatory 1st step

    the idea of being "ok" with ideas around ability to influence peoples lifes i such a private way while they do not have basic humans rights, health care or unemployment or mental health care is a bit hitler-esque for a purely capitalist society

    such technology needs robust social regulation with a stable platform of human rights and social economic equality
    otherwise it is just another fiscal genocide tool
    the mental gas chambers for liberal thought & diversity

    naval gazing opulent wealthy privilege thinks many ideas are great
    that doesn't make them great when they are rolled out to public working class application
    like compulsory free machine guns for teenagers when they pass their driving license
    it must make logical sense in all directions
