Implants & Technology — The Future of Healthcare? Kevin Warwick at TEDxWarwick

Translator: Fran Ontanaya
Reviewer: Capa Girl We’re living in momentous times. Now, I don’t know whether you know but this is a world first — the TED conferences go all over the world, all different countries — this is the very very first time — normally you take a place name, normally you take a university name — this is the very first time a TED has ever been named after a person and — (Laughter) (Applause) I just wanted to say, it’s a fantastic honour. We mentioned before Sheldon, and I just want to say there’s never yet been a TEDxCooper so, Sheldon Cooper, eat your heart out. What we’re gonna be looking at today — yeah, plugging your brains into a network, what’s the possibility both from a healthcare point of view and in terms of — maybe some of you feel quite bored being a human, quite limited in what you can do and particularly your brain doesn’t perform how it should, so, what are the possibilities of an upgrade. We should start tho, on the back of healthcare but as we gonna see it’s a lot more than that — implants and things like that. Class II sounds quite technical. In fact, what the Class II implants is for those of you that don’t know — This is a younger version of me, way back, the last millenium and my G. P. so this is was all done in the National Health. And what I’m having implanted is this little device — not the thing on the left hand side. (Laughter) This is this quaint currency we still have. The thing on the right hand side — a radiofrequency identification device. I had this implanted, because various people, Peter Cochrane, who’s a head of B. T. research labs was saying, “In the future we are not gonna need passports, we are not gonna need credit cards — What we will have is a little implant under the skin.” But nobody had actually tried it until this particular experiment. Now what it did for me was, in my doorways — I’m from Reading University. Is there anybody else here from Reading? Audience: Yeah! Kevin Warwick: Oh, come on! (Laughter) Anybody else here from Reading? (Clamor) Yay, there we go! It needed a bit of warming up there, I think. In my building, Cybernetic building at Reading, we’ve got coils of wire in the door frames. and if you have an implant of this type and you walk through the door frames then current is induced in the [implant], transmits a singal back to the coils, which are linked to the computer. And what it did for me was, as I walked down the corridor, the lights came on, just for me, walking to my laboratory, the door opened — I mean, it’s really cool stuff. Coming in the doors, says, “Hello, Professor Warwick.” All fantastic stuff. And various people said, “Uh, who’s ever gonna want to have anything like that?” No! Is anybody here got a cat or a dog with a chip implanted? It’s all right, you can speak! Is anybody out there? You can rest assured, that this was fully tested on humans before your animal — (Laughter) So no need to worry at all. There’s actually a night club — I know in the academic world we can’t afford those things — but, there’s a night club in Barcelona, there’s another one in Rotterdam, called the Baja Beach club, and if you go there they actually send you around the corner and you can get one of these things — a smaller version, don’t worry it’s not that big — implant it, and then when you go in the night club you don’t have to pay for your drinks directly. It’s automatically charged to your implant. I’m serious! Try it, try it. Good advert for the Baja Beach club. That’s implant number 1. I’m going to flick on to “Regulation” because some of you may think this isn’t going anywhere. Well, in the United States, they have, for people with diabetes and with epilepsy, they can have this thing implanted. And now, under Barack Obama, the healthcare rules that you have to have it regulated. Even with the possibility that you may have to have one implanted. We’ll see where that goes. But I’m going to take you, right up to date, to what some of my students are doing. This is the sort of implant you could try yourself. This is Jawish, he’s one of my students. I’ve got three students now, that have had magnets implanted in their fingertips for part of their degree courses that they are doing, my students. (Laughter) We have to get ethical approval from the university to do this sort of thing. And you may notice — I’m supposed to stay on this red carpet but I’m going to zip up for a moment, ‘cos you may notice here the guy who’s doing the implant has tatoos on his arm. That’s because he is a tatoo artist, that’s what he does. And he goes by the name — this is serious he goes by the name of “Dr. Evil”. (Laughter) Now, we have to fill in a form for the university (Laughter) that says who is carrying out the medical procedure. Yeah. I mean, they can be really awkward over it, I have to say. This is an X-ray of Jawish’s fingertips. You can see the magnets implanted. Now what we are doing — now, on the baseball cap he’s got ultrasonic sensors and the output from those sensors is fed down to a little coil of wire around the magnet. And what happens, as an object comes closer, the current in the coil is changed, so the magnet vibrates more the closer an object is, and less as the object is further away. So essentially Jawish can feel how far objects are away. So it’s sensory substitution. Now, Ian Harrison, one of my PhD students with me now, he’s linked up to an infrared sensor. So he has magnets implanted. Now, infrarred is like a heat signal. So what he can do is remotely feel how hot objects are. So if you can get the audience, you can point, “Ah, you are hotter than you, you are hotter –” (Laughter) I mean, in a temperature sense. Don’t sort of stalk me or something like that, because I’m — particularly the guys here, I really didn’t mean it. (Laughter) But, you see, the military aplication for this is immediate. If you are a soldier and you are about to go into a room, and you don’t know whether there’s anybody there or not, you can simply push your finger around the corner and scan, “Ah! There’s somebody over there!” You know exactly where they are, but also how hot they are, for what use that is. (Laughter) This is Ashley and he’s doing some work — a guy, Paul Bach-y-Rita, originally did this — and it’s actually sending little stimulating pulses into his tongue, to communicate in a new way. This is interesting, because people have never tried this before. If you actually tried it, very quickly you’d be able to pick up and pick up letters and signs — So it’s a new way of communicating. But the interesting thing is, if he sends a particular — let’s say, a triangle — a particular shape, then the person even if they haven’t tried it before, will say, “Yes, that’s a triangle.” But if we ask them to draw the triangle, then some people will draw it the right way up, some people draw it upside down and sideways, all sorts of different dimensions to it. We are not sure why. It is the routing from the tongue up to the brain is very very rapid and people can learn to use it to communicate very quickly. But there seems to be a particular way that it’s wired that we have a lot to learn about. So it’s one of those things with the research, you end with more questions than you started with. Now, some of you — this is where if you want to go ahead with this, it could be dangerous for you now, but it might be something you want to do when you are technically dead. So, it’s the sort of thing to put, not before, but as I die, could I try this, please. And that is, when you think of a robot, you think of either a computer-controlled device, or perhaps something that’s remote-controlled. Well, what we are developing are robots with their own brains. And, what we do — you see, on the right hand side of the picture here, is the physical robot. I mean, typically, because it is a laboratory and there we use a little robot on wheels. It has ultrasonic sensors. just like we saw on the baseball cap. But the brain of the robot is not a computer. The thing that says MEA is Multi-Electrode Array that’s all right, you don’t have to learn this. I’m not gonna test you on it later on. What does it say? (Laughter) About two people. Yes. All right. What is Multi-Electrode Array? What it actually is, is a little dish on the bottom of which are electrodes. What we do is take brain cells from rat embryos, separate them, and then squeeze them into this little dish, and grow them. We have to feed them using minerals and nutrients — a little pink liquid that is amazingly expensive in comparison with Lucozade — oh, advertising again I shouldn’t say it. But it does roughly the same stuff. And they are kept in an incubator, at 37ºC That’s where they grow. And then we link them up to a robot body. So the physical body of the robot is a technological body, but the brain is a biological brain that’s growing. And what we are looking at, is trying to figure out particularly how memories appear in the brain. How it learns and adapts and so on and so forth. We can see — witness it learning simple tasks at the present time. Importantly, at the moment, the rat brain robot, as it were, has about 100,000 brain cells. Where us humans have — how many brain cells do we have? Audience: Six. Kevin Warwick: Six! This is a Manchester United supporter, obviously. (Laughter) (Applause) Don’t clap on this stuff, isn’t scientific! So, any advance on six? Audience: A billion. KW: A billion. I mean, it depends. Most of us have a hundred billion. I thought, “No, who counted this?” Americans say it’s two hundred billion, but that’s — you know — that’s them, obviously. (Laughter) For the rest of us is a hundred billion. So we are talking here of 100,000. We’re now growing these things — this is the little dish on the left hand side. That’s where they grow. We have to keep it moist and so on, it can’t let it dehydrate. The right hand side are the electrodes, there you see. And the neurons grow in there, link up with each other. It’s quite amazing, these brain cells! You put them down, they’ve got no connections. Within a few minutes you can see them putting out what look like tentacles. And these tentacles then start linking up — You have to try this! Take a few of your brain cells out tonight, try and see — They start linking up with each other very quickly to form the dendrites and the axons, the inputs and the outputs. And with just over a week gone, we’ve got this brain-like activity that we can use for the robot. And what we are using now, not just rat neurons but we are growing in three dimensions, which takes the number up to 30 million, and we are also using human neurons, because it links more closely to memories and things like that. So it’s exciting research, and something you could do in the future, if you want. Deep Brain Stimulation is a medical process that’s used to help people with Parkinson’s Disease. You can see, it actually involves electrodes positioned in the central area of the brain. And what we are doing — This is typically the sort of information that we have. The top line is the electrical activity in the brain as a patient — this is from an actual patient — experiences the sort of tremors that occur with Parkinson’s Disease. So the bottom line is the muscular activity. And what we are trying to do is use artificial intelligence to learn to recognize the electrical activity so that, with the stimulators — At the moment the battery only lasts about two years and it has to be replaced. We are trying to make the battery to last lot longer by making the stimulator intelligent, so it only stimulates when it needs to stimulate. So what the artificial intelligence system does is actually predict from the electrical activity when tremors are going to start, and then it stimulates just when it needs to. if you see what I mean. So it’s to save the battery. Now the final area — you may be all been waiting for this. Those of you that are already enhanced, probably would say, “Oh dear, we know all that.” But there’s other possibilities, if you thought, “Why should I bother with enhancement.” I’ve just gone through them quickly. Memory, obviously, we forget all sorts of things. Communication is the big one, because, I’m sure anybody, all of us here, anybody [who] uses a computer is really embarrassed in how they have to communicate. Because, compared to technology, how we communicate is absolutely pathetic, isn’t it, we have to admit. Highly complex electrochemical signals — thoughts, images, concepts, emotions — and when we want to communicate those to somebody else, what do we do we convert them into mechanical pressure waves. Oh dear — And then (Laughter) those signals travel very slowly and somebody’s ears will pick them up, convert these mechanical signals back into electrochemical signals — What century are we living in here? (Laughter) The possibility of communicating directly from brain to brain — we have to be working on that sort of thing so we can communicate not in terms of this simple coded messages but in terms of images and thoughts and emotions and feelings. Anybody that’s been married now twenty, thirty years, you have no idea what it is your spouse is trying to tell you. If your brain was linked up you’d know exactly. If she’s saying to you, “Yeah that’s great, that’s great.” Now you’d actually know whether it’s great, it’s great. (Laughter) What I’ve done about this — well this is the Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. That’s me on the operating table. This was two hours of neurosurgery to have this little thing implanted into my nervous system. It’s called the Utah Array, because that’s where it comes from –that’s Utah, not Array. There’s no place called Array. And it’s got one hundred spikes on it. The electrodes [are] two micrometers — they are very very small, but that’s same sort of size as nerve fibers and brain cells, that sort of thing. And this was fired into the median nerves of my left arm and it was there for just over three months for the purpose of the experiment. Now, what could we do with it, in terms of the different experiments, ‘cos partly was partly looking at, could we use this technology to help people who are paralyzed or have difficulties in that way. But also where could we go with enhancement. And we saw earlier, Jawish feeling ultrasonic signals, feeling distance. One of the things that I was able to do, was to feel distance, but this time more directly. It took me six weeks to learn to recognize pulses that we were inputting into my nervous system and when we did this experiment, as an object came closer, my brain was receiving pulses of current that increased in frequency the closer an object came and then decreased as the object moved further away. So with a blindfold on, I was able to detect objects and could detect pretty accurately if they moved closer or further away. This is my wife, Irina, who is with me today. She helped in a number of ways with the experiment the jewellry was put together by a student of the Royal College of Art. So you see, students can do useful things. (Laughter) Just, you know, take it as an inspiration. The jewellry changes color from red to blue. It was linked to my nervous system which I could, open and it’s blue, close my hand and it’s red. But if you can imagine now the best way — If I’m calm and relaxed the jewellry is blue and if I get excited, the jewellry starts flashing red. Now she didn’t work in the university and if you could imagine there, she’s in her office and she’s working around, and the jewellry is blue, “Fine, he’s not doing anything he shouldn’t,”and then (Laughter) it starts flashing red, “What is he doing?! And more importantly, who is he doing it with?” (Laughter) How she could be so suspicious, I don’t know. This was taken at Columbia University, New York. And, if any of you have been there — A film box here — What film was filmed at Columbia University? Ah! Brilliant! Got it. Yes. Be louder. Audience: Ghostbusters. Kevin Warwick: Thank you very much, excellent. You win a Jamboree bag, ready for you are the back. Ghostbusters was filmed — they also do research there. (Laughter) Sometimes. Sorry, Columbia. What we did was plug my nervous system live into the Internet, and linked up to a robohand which was back at Reading University in England. So when I moved my hand in New York, my brain signals went across the Internet to move the robohand. When it gripped an object signals were sent back across the Internet, so that I could feel how much force the robohand was applying on another continent. So one thing with this technology, you extend your body. Your brain and your body do not have to be in the same place. So, go for it. The final clip, which for me was the biggest thing This is my wife again, now what she had — you can try this tonight, just push some electrodes into your nervous system. (Laughter) It goes by the name of “microneurography”, so it sounds great. What it is, though — is you will find it’s extremely painful. (Laughter) We thought that she was going to have some anesthetic but the doctor said, “No no no, I need to make sure I made a good contact.” So he pushed the electrode in, she screamed, and the doctor said, “Ah, I think we made a good contact there.” (Laughter) We actually pushed two electrodes in, went back to the lab, and linked our nervous systems together electrically. So when she moved her hand, my brain received the pulse. So what we did was a telegraphic communication. She went, tick, tick, tick, and my brain received, tick, tick, tick. So it was a telegraphic communication directly nervous system to nervous system. That’s what we actually achieved. Now where we go from here, clearly is brain to brain communication. Implants in one person’s brain, another brain, and let’s communicate in a much more effective way directly brain to brain. I have to say my wife Irina, for some reason feels that’s a little bit dangerous, I’m not sure why. So presently I’m looking for a volunteer, so if there’s anybody (Laughter) anybody there that doesn’t mind having a brain implant and would like to communicate in a whole new way — I know it’s only my thoughts that you are gonna be receiving, but that’s just the start. So I will leave you, thank you very much, and if any of you want to volunteer, please let me know. (Applause)

  1. I' ve got implants, and I liked it,
    cyborg vision's fantastic,
    I've got implants, don't deny it,
    Hope my government don't mind it..
    I feel so strong,
    I feel so bright,
    my memory is ze-ta-byte,
    I've got implants and I liked it
    I liked it.

  2. This man should do his homework on telepathy research. All the things he craves for are possible without mechanically interfering with the body.

  3. we cant use our brain because we've been poisoned by our own civilization to pretty much kill the pineal gland. we also are making ourselves fat, and not to mention we lowered our IQ's.

  4. I dont know about that. It just means I liked it in the past, it does not specify if i like it now or not. Besides, if I got implants back then, chances are I would upgrade further, and become uploaded posthuman, meaning, that I would be "liking" something else;D

  5. unlikely. My government is so hilariously inept, that they would not know how to control a toaster, let alone a cybernetic microchip 😀

  6. Hello Jean!
    I'm glad that you're interested. I've been digging into such areas for long time out of personal curiosity. Perhaps you'll want to check out "The Source Field Investigations" from David Wilcock. Depending on your frame of mind, some of the material may put you off, but there is a huge amount of hard scientific data there – only the reference section runs for about 60 pages.

    Some of Heartmath's research papers are also very interesting – you can find a 100 page pdf on their site.

  7. There’s only one real pussy here and that is Putin, who is intimidated by the power of the people and their music. As Nadezhda (Nadia) Tolokonnikova said from the cage before sentencing, “You may imprison us but our minds are free.” Spanked that ass, Nadia.

  8. Rev.4:7 states that the 3rd beast has the face of a man…Rev13:18 AND his number is 666…3×666=1998 hmmmm was it not August 24th 1998 that this was first implanted in a human????

  9. Rupert Sheldrakes work seems more appropriate specially for people who are not used these discoveries.
    David Wilcock: from the less then 2 hours I saw/heard it seemed too much off into "new age"/"esoteric" type stuff, plus he seems a bit too much like he's trying to sell the ideas instead of sharing them. Just my personal preference

  10. Yes, the movie tries to convey the book's 500 pages, which sometimes gets confusing. If you still feel like it, I would recommend you the book.
    Rupert Sheldrake is great, in my opinion he is trying to reach people with a more "ordinary" frame of mind, but ultimately with similar ideas. Just a matter of packaging to me:)

  11. I can't wait to these implant technologies to progress. I wan't to able to hook myself to computer and in Virtual Reality. When that happens i'll move to cheapest house I can find and sell all my belongings and spend my life in there. Of course I'll eat and exercise time to time but i wouldn't care what happens in real world anymore. 😀

  12. I'd rather have my brain put a prosthetic body like Motoko Kusanagi's when I'm 70 to 80 and possible brain backups assuming that one of both will be available within my lifetime.

  13. Aren't any of you concerned about this. This is no joke. Now let's hear about the negative side of being controlled and continuously monitored by this tracking device. Not to mention side effects of having an electromagnetic device in your body. Oh. and there is the possability of terrorist hacking into the system and ruining your profile and getting into things like your bank account. No thanks…

  14. I agree. I did say "I'd rather have my brain put into a prosthetic body like Motoko Kusanagi's when I'm 70 to 80" after-all. A backup is a last resort attempt to preserve ones mind.

    Here's an example of Motoko /watch?v=l_gvp_wu8BQ Notice how her head–and vastly of greater importance being her brain-case (the housing, shielding, life support, and human machine interface for a living transplanted brain)–was not damaged(/killed) by that massive robotic suit. She also swaps prosthetic bodies.

  15. we need to solve the problem of the fragility of the human body. any shit we try to interface it with has to be accepted by the immune system.

  16. if you're not a moron, you won't modify your body unless you have complete control over the processing of ever implanted device. I'm talking a secure firewall on all the incoming/outgoing data in your implants( just like a computer's firewall). And you would always have the option to cut off from the internet.

  17. Moron? Excuse me? The bill that was passed did not contain the implant law. It however was in the initial bill that got deleted but someone wants it in there. I t will more than likely rear it's head again. Personaly, I will die before they put a chip in me.

  18. have you seen those bionic eyes. and legs stronger then that of a humans letting crippled solders go back to the army. the future is coming and it's big

  19. I feel so sorry for his wife…. Really freaking cool stuff, and I love it, but oh his poor wife.

  20. Well i have interest in Enhancement of human body and i have this obsession since long time and it is my dream to dedicate my life to discover new things , so Dr Kevin Warwick im ready to volunteer in this project to upgrade human body and life .

  21. Warwick is a terran MOSH, and a cosmist cyborgist. LOL How many people here knew that?! (Sign me up for being a cyborg, to hell with the conformist idiot MOSH masses!)

  22. I've had acupuncture needles in my popliteal nerve and other branches of the sciatic nerve with little or no discomfort. Maybe that the route to go.

  23. This is sick! So you would like to be a robot? Anyone who thinks this is a move forward should really switch their brain on and start thinking about the long term consequences. Yeah, lets all get chipped so we can all be turned OFF!

  24. Then everything is a robot, no? Ok let's take that path then. For a start we would be 'biological' robots and what is happening here is 'mechanical' robotics. All sounds good at first but you need to look deeper and more long term… For instance, what if it got to a point where we depended on this machinery just to survive, lets say, just to have our brain functioning… And one day the powers that run the world decide there are too many of us on the planet, they would just 'switch' us off 🙁

  25. The transhumanism are not without problems. But I´m more at the cyrborg stand than the terrans stand. (See Hugo de Garis inteviews)

  26. Revelations 13: 15 he had power to give life unto the image of the beast..and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads

    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    "So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause." -Star Wars

  27. What happens to people who do not trust Dr. Warwick and do not want to ride off into the sunset He is promoting? I do not want this in my life and I do not care what other people label me. You implant things in your physical body that can malfunction and be manipulated by 'hackers' and others of this ilk. Who is funding this man and I have heard the disdain he has for those that do not want this way of life and reject it.Following this path will alienate one further from nature and its SLOW moving processes .

  28. And her hand went dick, dick, dick and his brain went dick, dick, dick – the future, ladies and gentlemen.

  29. hey kevin im kevin too! can you turn me into a full cyborg or a full machine??? i want to live forever. i dont want to die and meet a mythical "god"… 

    i want you to be my creator. 

  30. Around 6:20 It accrued to me that this extra sensory occurring at fingertips would be heaven sent for blind people. It would be equivalent to what reading in Brazil (sp?) Is but amplified into many aspects of the natural world.

  31. Those who fear death will run to the scientist to be their creator. Ironic isn't it? The scientist who rejects the concept of a creator will offer to be your creator or Demi God. Those who buy this lie of man made immortality will be on the wrong end of history, as history will repeat itself again. Man was worshiped as Gods in the ancient world. This time when Yeshua/Jesus returns to claim his own, the walking Cyborg viruses will not be able to pry their human DNA out of the machine they allowed to take over their soul.  

  32. Warwick quote "I was born a human but this was an accident of fate…since childhood I have been captivated by the study of robots and cyborgs. Now I am in a position where I can actually become one."

    Does this not raise a red flag to your conscience? Warwick is a threat to humanity (literally). 

  33. Amazing! Thank you TEDx for posting & overall sharing this. This type of advance really cuts the path in the world for human advances. It's simply wonderful to see what was once upon a time a mere science fiction dream finally start become reality. 

  34. I have a hypothetical question. He is talking about chips being linked together eith his wifes and the use of jewelry showing her, his emotion. Ehat if: 2 ppl were chiped int the brain and linked together technologically. Lets say, one of these people dies. At the point of death does yhe other person get to experience what the other one, whom is passing on, experiences in the brain at the point of death? Is this possible with yhis technology in place?

  35. surely I can't be the only one that finds this technology terrifying, and the fact he's obviously so intelligent and driven by his passion for this technology even more scary, we live in an age where phones,tv's,cars and even bloody microwaves can be hacked, need I say more? one programmer decides to make everyone on the earth his slave, writes some code and we all loose control of our thoughts and actions, count me out, I'll stick to communicating with sound pressure waves

  36. This is very impressive. Although i wouldn't choose to implant robotics things in my body, i can't deny this man's work is astonishing. If those studies may come up to healing diseases and other handicaps(like being blind, deaf, etc) it will certainly be a great scientific breakthrough

  37. this sounds like a gov lie, trying to trick people into implanting chips in humans, they can be easier and better controlled.

  38. The idea of wiring pieces of a mouse's brain into a computer chip is horrifying…

    And the steps that will have to be taken to go from there to Robo Cop like he's saying are even more horrifying… Entire brains wired into robotic interfaces during fetal development.. Creatures that never knew the touch of their own body, living in a mechanical shell.


  39. The idea of this is terrifying. Where would the right to autonomy be? How can it be ethically acceptable to connect nervous systems to where only one person would be receiving motions and thoughts. This idea sounds like a way of allowing one person to have complete access and control over another. Privacy, independence, and autonomy would be destroyed. Potentially it could be used to help patients with diagnoses such as Parkinson's, but at what cost? There are other health risks to this too that was failed to be mentioned in this video. Infection would be huge considering the implant would have to be changed every couple of years. Also, what if the implant is placed incorrectly? The brain signals could be interfered and cause other side affects if the wrong neurons are being interfered with. However great this idea is, it should be highly considered before people shove implants into their brain. If all this information is being accessed, transmitted across the country, and the messages cannot be filtered, imagine what else the government or healthcare can access and monitor.

  40. Prof. Warwick should feel very content with his lecture, it was as entertaining as it was informative. When choosing an ethical issue, I needed to delve into the actual relationships that can be observed between the healthcare system, and the community of people needing its services. For that reason, beneficence seems to be an apt choice, due to the principle's focus of acting to benefit others. When Prof. Warwick commenced with his lecture, and began talking about various technological advancements, I was relieved to find that there is
    continuation in trying to find aids for patients with disabilities. At the point where he discussed the purpose for the utarray experiment, he did a great job at pointing out that it is always possible for further improvements. A
    downside to that section, however, is that I would have liked to see an example of a patient using the utarray implantation, and seeing the proposed effects. Anyhow, I enjoyed Prof. Warwick's presentation, and I commend him for showing the medical-technological side of acting to benefit the patient.

  41. What the proponents of cyborg technology are suggesting is that humans are capable of incorporating bits of machinery into biological tissues. These bits of machinery (fibre optic pieces being the favoured material) are then to take on an electronic charge. Problem: biological tissues cannot be ‘grounded’ to control the amount of charge to be captured by the receptor. And an electronic charge on a receiver cannot be ‘directed’ – the laws of physics dictate that the charge will disperse in a spherical form, burning and boiling tissues (nervous tissues, pieces of muscle fibre, connective tissues) in an uncontrolled way. The injuries caused by the electronic charge to the receptor will not likely be noted immediately – however, over time the scarring will be evident and irreversible. Receptors placed in the throat and the chest to ‘digitize’ speech or to capture ‘speech’ will gradually burn away the vocal cords and tissues in near proximity to the receptors. A receptor placed near the eyes to capture ‘visuals’ will burn the sinus cavity, the corneas and the corners of the eyes until the eyeballs lose integrity (wow, what a way to go). Receptors placed on the spine (to capture or dictate the movements of arms and legs) will burn the tissues on the spine (why would anyone want this to happen?). The electron load at the receptor sites, of course, increases the rate of calcium depletion at the sites – osteoporosis is inevitable. Receptors placed at the ears will eventually result in an eardrum incapable of responding to sound as nervous tissues deteriorate. Now, let us begin with the effects of all these relentless electronic pathways in close proximity to the brain: at first, the increased electronic charge will result in what appears to be heightened creativity, a sense of euphoria and a feeling of invincibility; these will gradually give way to a breakdown of neurons and fibres in the brain resulting in an accelerated run to full on madness and dementia. And god help you if you have these receptors plugged into you and someone ‘hacks’ you: they can inflict horrendous pain, muscle cramping, screaming sound in your ears (seriously, try to find the nasty emitter – you just cannot). You think you want to live with that? And just wait until someone finds out how to carefully insert a piece of receptive fibre optic glass into a victim, bide their time, and then direct a radio wave of sufficient magnitude to cause contractions and pops in flesh with sufficient force to kill (note to public: proven possible while you sit there enamoured with a fiction about a ''mind meld'). Anyone attempting to promote the ‘safe’ installation of ‘microchips’ into human flesh is lying or stupid or sadistic.  Research into 'microchip implants into human flesh' is more like Weapons Research masquerading as a Medical Study.  Professor Warwick:  you know that a microchip implanted in the throat and near the ears will translate to words coming out of the mouth under the correct frequency set. you know 'the 'mechanics' of visuals'.  How do you claim that the effects of electronic impulses on biological tissues are benign.

  42. ok, so Kevin is looking forward to the day when we have a REAL LIVE BRAIN powering the robot.  Excellent.  some of us are in the dark ages of eating what is commonly known as 'food' to nourish our brains, with an entire circulatory system available to deliver what is commonly known to the lay person as 'oxygen' (etc).  the robot 'REAL LIVE BRAIN' tissues that Kevin imagines will not be needing those things because the (very strong) vinegar that the brain is stored in will kind of supply everything that the future brain will be needing (there may be some need for a small brain toilet in the robot gadgetry somewhere, but that kind of detail is for the robot plumbers to work out).  FANTASTIC.  I like vinegar on chips, which can only mean that my brain is now pretty much good to go in terms of transplanting it to the robot – and until the robot plumbers work out the small toilet, my brain could wear  a small diaper (adult sized, to save the embarrassment of 'accidents' like the verbal accidents coming out of Kevin's brain).  Seriously people.  it is not possible for brain cells to remain as anything other than 'biological mush' when removed from the living mammalian casing.  shall I move on to trash 'Artificial Intelligence and a Learning Computer that yearns for freedom' now Kevin?

  43. Хотите вызвать у себя рвоту – посмотрите это видео. Особенно – фотки с операции.😝😰😨😱😲😵😕😮😝😝😝

  44. I read this and of course my first reaction is that no, they wouldn’t do to another woman what they have done to me.  So if you story is real, I sure as shit know your nightmare.  Yes, boring dull minds in a never ending screaming dialogue.  Sodomized nerves by receptor on tailbone, raped on the clitoris by receptor stuck between the legs.  In Ottawa Canada, they have designed a never ending emission of what they call ‘orgasmic bliss’ coming out of every emitter they can get their goddamned hands on….it is nothing but another pornographic game for loser old men hoping that a hypersexual young female will jump their bones.  Combine this with a video game
    platform to manage the emitters directed at each receptor and a life observed on wireless LED (women of the world, you will never again sit on the toilet alone), and you have a dying human toy that prays for escape.  And they have done these things to a
    child.  This technology is nothing but a pedophiles wet dream.

  45. This man must love Ghost in the shell…technology i love it , as long is removable , if i can put a "hat" which will grant me learning of new language in 10 minutes. Super i will love to have it , but if they want to drill my brain out to put some chip in it where i do not know what are the "true" capacities of that thing , no way ! do you realize if they can send you one kind of electronic signal which can make you feel some kind of sensation, they can also send you different kind of signal to make you feel something else and you are not able to "disconnect" from it ? Well no thx

  46. RFID reminds me of Leon Theremin's "The Thing", a batteryless electronic eavesdropping device discovered hidden in the U.S. Embassy's Great Seal gifted by Soviet children.

  47. I liked the magnetic implant that allows you to sense how far things are away from you. I have no depth perception and it’s be very useful.

  48. you are doing propaganda for the sickest criminal elite in the world.. this is dangerous.. total slavery.. research how this has been used to enslave
