USA - Neuralink Chip Streams Music Directly to Brain

Arno Froese

Elon Musk’s mysterious Neuralink startup is working on a brain-computer interface that will allow wearers to stream music directly to their brain, the technology entrepreneur has claimed.

Mr. Musk, who also heads SpaceX and Tesla, is set to reveal new information about the mysterious startup but has been slowly releasing details over Twitter.

Responding to computer scientist Austin Howard, Mr. Musk confirmed that Neuralink’s technology would allow people to “listen to music directly from our chips.”

Since its founding in 2016, Neuralink has only held one major public presentation about how the technology will work.

Speaking at the 2019 event, Mr. Musk said the firm was working on a “sewing machine-like” device that would provide a direct connection between a computer and a chip inserted within the brain.

Mr. Musk made a request for people with specific expertise in wearables.

“If you’ve solved hard problems with phones/ wearables (sealing, signal processing, inductive charging, power management, etc.), please consider working at [Neuralink],” he tweeted.

Arno's commentary

South African national Elon Musk, with Canadian citizenship through his Canadian mother, obtained US citizenship in 2002. Doubtless, he is one of the super-successful people on planet earth which, incidentally, shows internationalism is a contributing factor to success in the global world.

The Neuralink chip connecting directly to one’s brain is just another stepping-stone for technology to take dominion of mankind. That is nothing new, since sensational reports about progressive science and technology is presented to the world through the news media, with much-hyped results.

Think about it: only a few decades ago, if someone wanted to research a certain subject, one had to consult the available printed resources such as encyclopedias, historical documents, scientific papers, etc. Today, this is all at our fingertips. On the internet, one can get information from literally all around the planet. Thus, we see the world has changed dramatically since the day when food was the decisive objective of man. Nourishment would guarantee existence, but that has become an unimportant sideline. Mankind has developed the technology to produce food in such abundance that a major portion of produce, for example, is being wasted in the field, in warehouses, retail stores, and at home.

Today’s most important issue revolves around technology; in particular, communication. In many of the most primitive countries on planet earth, people are walking around with cell phones in their hands. In the most remote dwelling places, a TV antenna or satellite is seen crowning the residence. Technology has become king; and, as previously stated in this column, technology will become man’s self-made god. Revelation 9:20 has this to say: “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk.” Note the words, “repented not of the works of their hands.” The product (merchandise) becomes the object of worship.
