  14. Well it’s very dangerous as well as could be hacked and it’s not going to be beneficial for those who have that chip!!
    It’s what I am talking about people must understand the side effect as well and should value if it’s worth it!!! Because can be worse than before chip!

  20. As expected the ignorant are fearful of the new tech and attributing it to various boogieman concepts such as; the mark of the beast or the loss of free will or an inevitably faulty/hackable device which will destroy the brain.

    All assumptions with no evidence. Fearful speculation.

    I've watched other videos where the patient discusses in depth their experience and their account is that the surgery they had to get it was done within 2 hours without complications. They were able to go home the next day. (they couldn't wear anything on their head for like 2 weeks)

    They've adjusted to it well and its had a fantastic effect on their quality of life.

    Its okay to have concerns but people need to be more reasonable.

    I commend all those involved in developing seems to be a revolutionary bit of technology and its only going to improve. In time we will see if there is any long-term negative effects of having the implant and whether the implant is prone to having fatalistic breakdowns. I don't know the ins and outs of the tech either, but I'm not going to start spitting out doomsday scenarios to arouse fear when we are witnessing something truly marvellous.

  21. Easy to control the masses if this becomes worldwide

  22. So this is Elon Musk's reponse to AI… that humans have to be ready to combat the fast learning AI..

  23. He say I was released days later but sweetie we clearly see your still there

  24. This is great and the most important technology, which will bring the next chapter of human development!
