Intel Wants Brain Implants in Its Customers' Heads by 2020
Published on 04-12-2010

Source: Popular Science

If the idea of turning consumers into true cyborgs sounds creepy, don't tell Intel researchers. Intel's Pittsburgh lab aims to develop brain implants that can control all sorts of gadgets directly via brain waves by 2020.

The scientists anticipate that consumers will adapt quickly to the idea, and indeed crave the freedom of not requiring a keyboard, mouse, or remote control for surfing the Web or changing channels. They also predict that people will tire of multi-touch devices such as our precious iPhones, Android smart phones and even Microsoft's wacky Surface Table.

Turning brain waves into real-world tech action still requires some heavy decoding of brain activity. The Intel team has already made use of fMRI brain scans to match brain patterns with similar thoughts across many test subjects.

Plenty of other researchers have also tinkered in this area. Toyota recently demoed a wheelchair controlled with brainwaves, and University of Utah researchers have created a wireless brain transmitter that allows monkeys to control robotic arms.

There are still more implications to creating a seamless brain interface, besides having more cyborgs running around. If scientists can translate brain waves into specific actions, there's no reason they could not create a virtual world with a full spectrum of activity tied to those brain waves. That's right -- we're seeing Matrix creep.

Inside the Mind of a Madman--In His Own Words

Quote :

“No sharp line can be drawn between scientific technique and traditional arts and crafts. The essential characteristic of scientific technique is the utilization of natural forces in ways not evident to the totally uninstructed.” – Bertrand Russell, 1931 (p137)
From The Scientific Outlook:
[Italicised text is original emphasis and bolded text is added by author.]

“As we approach modern times, the changes deliberately brought about in social structure become greater. This is especially the case where revolutions are concerned. The American Revolution and the French Revolution deliberately created certain societies with certain characteristics, but in the main these characteristics were political, and their effects in other directions formed no part of the primary intentions of the revolutionaries. But scientific technique has so enormously increased the power of governments that it has now become possible to produce much more profound and intimate changes in social structure than any that were contemplated by Jefferson or Robespierre. Science first taught us to create machines; it is now teaching us by Mendelian breeding and experimental embryology to create new plants and animals. There can be little doubt that similar methods will before long give us power, within wide limits, to create new human individuals differing in predetermined ways from the individuals produced by unaided nature. And by means of psychological and economic technique it is becoming possible to create societies as artificial as the steam engine, and as different from anything that would grow up of its own accord without deliberate intention on the part of human agents.

Such artificial societies will, of course, until social science is much more perfected than it is at present, have many unintended characteristics, even if their creators succeed in giving them all the characteristics that were intended. The unintended characteristics may easily prove more important than those that were foreseen, and may cause the artificially constructed societies to break down in one way or another. But I do not think it is open to doubt that the artificial creation of societies will continue and increase so long as scientific technique persists. The pleasure in planned construction is one of the most powerful motives in men who combine intelligence with energy; whatever can be constructed according to a plan, such men will endeavour to construct. So long as the technique for creating a new type of society exists there will be men seeking to employ this technique. They are likely to suppose themselves actuated by some idealistic motive, and it is possible that such motives may play a part in determining what sort of society they shall aim at creating. But the desire to create is not itself idealistic, since it is a form of the love of power, and while the power to create exists there will be men desirous of using this power even if unaided nature would produce a better result than any that can be brought about by deliberate intention.” – 204

The public is already so damn brainwashed I'm not even sure why they think they need these next generation toys.

PS. Bertrand Russell is just so great, because he totally gives away the game in such a direct and non-deceptive manner.

Yeah, good point. :-(

What astonished me was the great gap between his public reputation ('a great philosopher') and reality!!
Simulacrums are everywhere, it seems; the more I learn the more I find this clash between truth and what is proclaimed as truth. Pretty damn disturbing, to say the least.

Interesting news

Alan Watt's program today, 4/23/10, opens with him providing very interesting commentary on Bertrand Russell, almost directly from the pages of the Knowledgedrivenrevolution material displayed at the KDR site, and linked to from this forum. It's the "Impact of Science on Society" portion of the material, and is very enlightening. :-)

So, how does Watt vector russell's material? Either he limits his audience's perspective by skewing understanding, or he's simply leaving-out content germane to any comprehensive understanding.

I don't really want to listen to Watt's NLP speak, so can you decipher the above? Watt's very good, so it's going to be a challenge, but would be an interesting exercise.

I haven't figured that out yet. Actually, I was hoping YOU could, as the "spin" hasn't been apparent to me.

So far, the best I've been able to conjecture is: that the theme is, "There's no way out, and resistance is futile. They are too powerful to stop." Sorry, but this is all I've been able to arrive at in the way of what the vector is. His material is always seemingly accurate, and, believe it or not, his moral compass seems to also be intact. And I don't think I'm that easy to fool.......

I have to say, it's a puzzle to me; --I've been asking myself that very question for a long time.

I think you should use it as a case study, and see what you can see. I think you're a lot more advanced than you realize.

With regard to the "there's no way out" theme, is that something that you see Watt doing in general, or is that what he is doing when presenting Russell, or both?

Thanks.

Will reply soon; I have some additional thoughts about this.

I don't know about all those brainwashed masses.
But I know Imma Bee a human.

They will properly agree with all the brainwashing about being a cyborg is cool and stuff.
I just hope they make the right choice and not try to alter god's creation.

I couldn't agree more.!
Who is this 'Imma Bee' ?

It is a song by "black eye peas" trying to promote the transhuman agenda and the NWO.

The first part explains transhumans and the second analyze Imma Bee.
