In the 1980s there was talk about cellphone implants that wouldn't require hand-held devices.

Musk wants to eliminate driving by humans, and require that ALL vehicles be "driverless".

You canít. Phones canít even be shut off when it comes to constant processing and sending your information to the parent companies. It sends information regardless, even if you turn it off in the settings.

But itís good because it can process your likes and interests and moods throughout the day and modify it to your preferences. Think about wanting a burger? Get recommended Uber eats

This technology is not benign.

Nobody knows what it will do to your brain chemically or physically. Brains are not even fully developed prior to the age of 25.

It is a way to monetize your brain even more so than electronic devices monetize your eyes-- for someone else's profit.

This is a very scary idea and one which ethical considerations have to come into it in which case it should never happen. No one should be playing around with anyone's brain.

I neither like nor trust technology much but given most of interactions seem to be online eg bills, some shops are only online etc it is unavoidable, particularly during lockdown where even social interaction had to be online along with food shopping.

It's from Star Trek. The Borg merged technology with biology, creating a tyrannical hive mentality. Very scary!

Also, they forced it on people, it wasn't a personal choice.

Re: Elon Musk says he will have chip implants in our brain to listen to music!

It's originally from Star Trek, The Next Generation. The Borg are a blend of humans with major technological implants and parts. They have no individual identities apart from the collective. Their goal is to assimilate the other cultures they encounter.

Too bad if you don't wish to be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

We're all living in a halodeck with the safety protocols turned off. It's a manufactured version of real life.

I looked it up and itís literally just a sci-fi version of communism. Like in north korea youíre only allowed to do or say one thing.

Or christians basically, the more devout they are in their communities the more they enforce these weird rules like only wearing certain types of underwear or have that weird plastic smile.

it seems to have creped into astrology somehow too. how pisces means to connect to one source and you need to be a part of it and erase your individual identity/ego

What privacy? If people truly cared about it, they wouldnít have allowed companies to gather sell and use their data.

Governments have all of your information and are freely allowed to gather info about you.

Privacy is an ancient and archaic concept.

It's an in-joke, Bunraku. Nobody claims that Star Trek is a credible news source. But it is full of metaphors that are widespread in our culture.

No conspiracy theory: just sensible questions and precautions.

Thatís just an average. Some peopleís brains develop quicker some later . Itís not like your brain fuses the midnight of your 25th birthday.
