 Brain Chips To Make People Super-Intelligent

Northwestern Neuroscientist Researching Brain Chips To Make People Superintelligent

CHICAGO (CBS) — What if you could make money, or type something, just by thinking about it? It sounds like science fiction, but it might be close to reality.

In as little as five years, super smart people could be walking down the street; men and women who’ve paid to increase their intelligence.

Northwestern University neuroscientist and business professor Dr. Moran Cerf made that prediction, because he’s working on a smart chip for the brain.

“Make it so that it has an internet connection, and goes to Wikipedia, and when I think this particular thought, it gives me the answer,” he said.

Cerf is collaborating with Silicon Valley big wigs he’d rather not name.

Facebook also has been working on building a brain-computer interface, and SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface called Neuralink.

“Everyone is spending a lot of time right now trying to find ways to get things into the brain without drilling a hole in your skull,” Cerf said. “Can you eat something that will actually get to your brain? Can you eat things in parts that will assemble inside your head?”

It sounds mind-blowing. Relationships might be on the line.

“This is no longer a science problem. This is a social problem,” Cerf said.

Cerf worries about creating intelligence gaps in society; on top of existing gender, racial, and financial inequalities.

“They can make money by just thinking about the right investments, and we cannot; so they’re going to get richer, they’re going to get healthier, they’re going to live longer,” he said.

The average IQ of an intelligent monkey is about 70, the average human IQ is around 100, and a genius IQ is generally considered to begin around 140. People with a smart chip in their brain could have an IQ of around 200, so would they even want to interact with the average person?

“Are they going to say, ‘Look at this cute human, Stephen Hawking. He can do differential equations in his mind, just like a little baby with 160 IQ points. Isn’t it amazing? So cute. Now let’s put it back in a cage and give it bananas,’” Cerf said.

Time will tell. Or will our minds?

Approximately 40,000 people in the United States already have smart chips in their heads, but those brain implants are only approved for medical use for now.

 Re:

What about a chip to keep folks from having impure thoughts, or to always want to be faithful to your spouse, or God even? What if every human has a chip to make the golden rule their default mindset?

 Re:


yea todd that's on their short list.
NOT

chips in the brain? to me, its a way to control people. To get them to act on impulse, to destabilize normative brain function and over-ride it in order to do the bidding of the guy putting the chip in you.

 Re: just some imagination


I'll have a little fun with this.

Inventor Moron-Slave is inventing a device to enslave you. The device works on the premise that you have no soul, therefore as an animal trying to survive you need to get one of Moron-Slaves enslavement devices. This device is being set up by billionaires with their own agendas. These agendas are not public, these plans are not being revealed.

So, in order for you to buy and sell, in order for you to become a part of a mega-system and profit from it, you simply take the mark and pow...youre in.

Now, it could be one agenda is loyalty to the megasystem. Who would instill such loyalty? A spokesman for the megasystem. That spokesman would pipe into your chip to make sure you were acclimated to the demands and needs of this mega-system. In short you become a servant to the mega-system, and in turn the mega-system sees to it you profit under that government.

Loyalty to the megasystem is also loyalty to the spokesman and whom ever the spokesman says you should be loyal to. In reverse, whoever is disloyal to the megasystem and disloyal to the spokesman cannot be tolerated.

This sets up a two kingdom mindset, one loyal to the megasystem and spokesman and the other loyal to a subversive system as well as an unapproved spokesman.

But, as believers we know we do have a soul, and they that take the mark in order to comply with the Beast and his false prophet are equated with worshipping a Devil and rejecting God's Son.

It is no stretch of the imagination to equate a mark in the forehead and a chip in the brain are the same. If such a mark is loyalty to the beast and the chip is access to a 'provider', would not that provider want some control?

Under the guise of medicinal purposes, all we would need to do is conduct numerous random experiments.
In this group of 1000 we gave the impulse to sleep early...then check sleeping patterns. Or, to eat a chocolate chip cookie...then check what they ate. So, you see under any number of innocuous experiments something like this is created to give the provider of the chip what he is really interested in. It's not sleep patterns or eating habits, its human interactions, its loyalty to an impulse over against altruism or kindness. Will they steal when told? Will they murder when told? Will they worship when told?

What a better and more convincing way to deceive people than empty secularism or humanism. No, it is the worship of man-made gods with instant approval of the god, and, instant reward for doing so.

Maybe the last deception for mankind is no different to the first deception. “You will not surely die,” the serpent told her.“For God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
