Brain chips, micro-computing, RFID chips, microchips, smart phones, and virtual reality all of this is leading to something, and according to Brain Johnson of Kernel and the founder of Braintree, the next phase of this “something” is placing technology inside the human brain.
Rapidly approaching the Human race is a decision, and in large part, that decision will be based on this question, do we place technology inside of our bodies? In 2007, many news outlets cried conspiracy at the fact that the RFID chip would be placed within people, and as of today, several thousand people across the globe have begun embedding RFID chips into their bodies.
A recent interview on Wired.com with Bryan Johnson, the founder of Braintree and CEO of Kernel, proves that within as little as ten years, people will have altered their brains.
There are several key quotes from Bryan, out of those here are two really important notes;
-Humans currently reign supreme on planet Earth, because we are the most powerful form of intelligence. So therefore, we decide who we eat, who we have as pets, who we allow to go extinct, who is saved, who is neutered, who can reproduce. We are currently developing a new form of intelligence in the form of AI that is increasingly capable, whether it’s conscious or not. For humans to be relevant in a matter of decades there is no choice other than to unlock our brains and intervene in our cognitive evolution. If you try to imagine a world where we are happy 30, 40, 50 years from now, there is no version of that future where we have not been able to figure out how to read and write our neural code.
