Elon Musk, Part 4🧠✨☄️🔥

Elon was on Lex Fridman’s podcast not too long ago, and I wanted to share some of the amazing advancements he is making. I am fascinated by his company, Neuralink. This is a new company that will solve problems such as brain disease.

I mean, how many people in the world have brain related diseases? Everything from Alzheimer’s to brain injuries from accidents to anyone who suffers from any disease (paralysis effected by strokes) anything that affects the brain, even genetic diseases, will be cured. We are looking at least 5 to 10 years out, in my opinion maybe even twenty, before this technology becomes available–but they are already discussing trials!

There will be a ‘robotic sewing machine’ that will insert these “threads” into the brain. Omg, limb function will be restored and even organ functions that have been damaged. You see the brain controls everything. This makes perfect sense. When the messages from the brain to the spinal cord/other parts of the body are corrupted–all kinds of stuff can enter: infection, inflammation, dead muscle, memory loss, damaged nerves, etc.

They want to “trigger” a neuron and see what the response is in the brain. We know our body is full of electrical signals. Everything you see and experience is basically an electrical signal. The human (brain) cortex is constantly trying to make the body (lymbic system) happy. It is the foundation of “human intelligence.” When messages get damaged from the brain to the body it causes a number of issues. Neuralink will restore people’s motor control!!!

This technology is especially important to me because I have a spinal cord injury, and I’ve had one ever since I was a teenager. I know how wonderful this technology is going to be for so many. It will alleviate suffering and one day brain disease or injuries to the brain/body due to accidents will be comparable to catching the common cold. They will be healed through this technology. Quality of life will be better.

They will insert a tiny electrode that will last as long as a person that won’t damage neurons. A number of engineering disciplines are going to be involved. The electrode is what will send the signals. This won’t be done by a neurosurgeon. It will have to be like LASIK surgery. It will have to be done by a robot (or AI). But the surgeons will be there.

If this concerns you just keep in mind that everything comes to you through an electrical signal. EVERYTHING. Everything you see, taste, feel, and experience comes to you through it. Neurons (also called neurones or nerve cells) are the fundamental units of the brain and nervous system.

They are the cells responsible for receiving sensory input from the external world, for sending motor commands to our muscles, and for transforming and relaying the electrical signals at every step in between. “We will not fail to be smarter than a digital super computer.” ~Elon Musk♥️

Elon Musk on Lex Fridman’s podcast. Wowie wow!🔥

Elon Musk (one of my favorite innovators) was on the Lex Fridman podcast (a world renowned and famous podcast show). He gets A LOT of listeners! I would LOVE to be on his show!

Apparently Elon thinks that one day AI (artificial intelligence) will be just as ‘smart’ as us and even difficult to discern. What I mean is one day it will be hard to tell whether you are dealing with AI or a human being.

AI safety is the goal. Right now they are making driverless cars completely driven by a computer. Elon argues that driverless cars are safer. For example, one day you may get a pizza delivered by a driverless JET’s pizza driver!

AI will be responsible for helping relieve Alzheimer’s. Or a ‘chip’ will be I should say. There will be a chip one day that will help those with Alzheimer’s remember their birthday, names of their loved ones, and other important things, etc.

‘We’ve got a monkey brain with a computer stuck in it,’ Elon says. Elon also says it should be that the ‘smart thing controls the dumb thing.’lol But the dumb thing, being us, controls the smart thing (AI).🤣😂

Neuralink (Elon’s company) will solve a lot of critical damage that has been done to the brain or spinal cord due to disease or accidents. He will solve brain related diseases even simple memory loss. At some point we may all experience it. His company has just been launched in 2016. That is not long ago!

It will improve quality of life! They will implant ’brain machine interfaces’ that will be embedded ’threads into the brain!’ It will cure TBIs and motor function issue due to spinal cord injury! Why couldn’t he have come out with this 20 years ago? I’ve had a spinal cord injury since 1994!

If you want to watch this AMAZING interview, I am still mind blown, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smK9dgdTl40 I hope you enjoy it and learn a lot like I did!
