Elon Musk, Part 3🧠⚕️🤖

Today I thought I’d write again on Elon Musk and Neuralink because ever since I learned about it I am just fascinated. Not only is Musk interested in resolving sustainable energy, but he works at that tirelessly. And his awesome Neuralink Corporation is a neurotechnology company developing implantable brain–machine interfaces founded by him and others.

The company’s headquarters are in San Francisco sharing offices with OpenAI. Neuralink was recently launched in 2016 and first publicly reported in March 2017. It had received $158 million in funding (of which $100 million was from ‘Musk,’ or ELON MUSK himself). It was employing a staff of 90 people including the top neuroscientists in the world!🌍

At that time, Neuralink announced that it was working on a “sewing machine-like” device capable of implanting very thin threads into the brain, and demonstrated a system that read information from a lab rat via 1,500 electrodes. They had anticipated starting experiments with humans in 2020; but have since moved that projection to 2021. Musk says he will initiate human trials by the end of this year.

There is a very low potential for rejection and the implant is not more serious than receiving a heart monitor or hip replacement, for example. There actually are people who have primitive devices in their brains now. People with deep brain stimulation with Parkinson’s Disease, for example, already have a ‘chip.’ So it is already happening on some level, and it has improved their lives!

Not only is Elon getting rockets to the moon through Space X; he’s also the CEO of Telsa. He says that a Tesla is the most fun thing anyone could ever have!😄 But back to Neuralink. The main purpose of it is to cure or atleast make the quality of life better for people with brain injuries or disease that is caused by the brain.

Diseases like Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, and a number of others will be cured. Injuries like Spinal cord injuries will be healed and having a spinal injury one day will be comparable to catching the common cold. It will be curable.👏

The threads will be implanted into the skull and become flush with the skull. So no one will know. It will more than likely be AI who inserts the threads (because they never mess up!)🤖 And you wouldn’t even know that someone has had it done.

It could return eyesight and restore memory and solve hearing issues. It could alleviate the effects of almost anything that is WRONG with the brain. It could restore limb function (back to curing the spinal cord)!

Believe it! With God ALL things are possible. The greatest physicists in the world even say that in an “eternal universe anything can happen.” This universe is eternal. It is comprised of rebirth after rebirth and it never ends.

We are living in a cosmic bubble bath of universe(s), or ‘Big events,’ actually. I refuse to say ’Big Bang’ because when a universe is born there is no noise or bang. In the beginning God said, ’Let there be light.’ There was light!✨

In this cosmic bubble bath comprised of more than 100,000,000 galaxies (or star systems) that we know of so far, why wouldn’t God create a Neuralink? Why wouldn’t God create an Elon Musk? Yes. People. And it doesn’t have to be the “chip” that comprises the “end of the world” that many of you falsely believe we are heading towards.

It is only around 2,000 AD. We are not even close! Open your mind. There will be the year 5,000, 10,000, and 20,0000 AD, maybe even 500,000, etc. This is not even the beginning. Michio Kaku, a world renowned physicist says that weddings will take place on the moon🌛 in 5,000,000 years!

We are a new planet. Think Star Wars. You never know with all this space exploration. Elon also says the end goal is to travel from planet to planet–think space civilization!🪐🌏✨🌙⚕️🤖🌏🌟

Be a winner!

Winners take full responsibility for everything that happens to them – even when those things seem remote and are not directly attributable to their actions. To achieve superior health, you must take 100% responsibility.–David Wolfe

This is true. But hard. It’s hard to take 100% responsibility. Even for people who walk “normally” it’s hard to exercise and always eat right. Imagine you could not walk? Or walked and it was a struggle? It’s that much harder to get up, get out. You may not even want to get out of bed sometimes.

The spinal cord is like a tree trunk, with nerves and fibers representing branches and stems. The vertebral column is a bony structure, like wood. When the spine breaks, the nerves and fibers are damaged. Just as if you took an ax to a tree trunk, all of the stems, branches, and twigs would start to wither away.

I’m up to 20 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the elliptical–forty minutes of cardio combined. A goal my physical therapist set for me several weeks ago. I’ve reached it!  Now I need to set a new goal for myself.

I’m walking faster and getting around better. It’s paying off! I just need to relax. Sometimes I get down on myself for not being able to move around like everyone else. I expect to be able to do what others are, not taking into consideration all of the injuries I had. I not only have a spinal cord injury at L1-L2. But several of my bones were broken. My left femur broke, my right tib fib, and left tib fib broke as well. I not only have a rod in my spine, but rods in my legs. My C1 was fractured. That’s not even all of my injuries. I’m lucky it wasn’t worse!

David Wolfe says, to feel like a winner you must be 100% responsible. It’s hard to feel like a winner when you can’t walk. After a severe injury, your self esteem is compromised. What makes us winners? The perfect job? The perfect mate? A nice big house? I think winning is in your attitude. We all have obstacles. Tragedy can strike all of us. I believe the winner has to be within, to not give up on life! Even on bad days, you have to bounce back.

One strategy that works for me is thanking God even when I feel bad. It’s not easy to do, but as I start to thank him for what I have, my mood starts to turn around. I feel better. The other stuff doesn’t seem so bad. Being a winner is not what you have, it’s who you are. And who you are, is what you make of yourself!
