Discussion Forum: Living with a Brain Chip
The next generation of cranial chip implants enables data transmission directly to the brain during rest without interfering with sleep. This data feed feature dramatically decreases the amount of time needed to assimilate new data each day, in fact the chipped person will just wake up knowing what was streamed into their head the previous night. The presence of the chip interferes with REM sleep, but the new data feed does not actually disrupt or alter in any way the sleep of the person with the implant.
The new disruptor cage is constructed out of more advanced materials that are lighter and more comfortable for the wearer. No longer is it necessary to lock head, neck and torso in to a rigid structure, the new generation of disruptor cages need only to lock to the head and upper vertebrae of the neck. This new format still provides the same protection against magnetic damage to the brain, advances in real time processing now allow for emergency shut off if the magnetic pulses are not directed exactly at the chip. The use of rare earth magnets in a wider net around the cranium makes for a more thorough disruption of the chip (even while undergoing data feed). This improves sleep by removing annoying dream sequences, restlessness, or need for sedatives previously common in past cranial chip implants.
These advances in cranial chip disruptors will work with all cranial chips. However, those with the newer (Gen. 3.4 or higher) cranial chips will see the most improvements and those who receive the soon to be released Gen. 4.0 will be able to take advantage of many new options. The 4.0 chips, like those before it, are a sandwich of carbon nanotubes, and gate molecules that are covered in neural growth promoters. The 4.0 chip features advances in neuron-to-chip interface, allowing for more neurons to contact the chip in more functional ways. This in turn increases the rate of information in and out of the chip, further increasing cognitive ability.
With this increase in connectivity of brain to chip and chip to brain comes increased assimilation and learning time. After implantation (still an outpatient procedure) it will take 30 to 90 days of neuron growth around the chip for it and the brain to become fully integrated. Upon chip integration, the newly chipped person will need to attend nine months of intensive classroom based courses, where they are taught new ways to think, process thoughts, and to categorize memories and data.
It is during this time, as the chip becomes enabled, that they will begin to feel the effects of the continuously running chip. As the brain becomes dependant on the chip the implantee will find it difficult to sleep. The first effects will be tossing and turning at night, followed by repetitive dreams, and finally inability to sleep. It is at this point that the cranial chip disruptor is needed and technicians will work with the chip implanted person (and spouse if necessary) insuring proper technique in fitting the disruptor, allowing the user to have the best nights sleep ever.
- Thoughts on this brain implant technology:Is data represented the same way in each individual human brain and by the same symbols? for instance is the symbol for say , a chair in my brain, represented by the same symbol in someone elses brain? and how would you find out?Until you find out the answer to these questions, you will have problems building a chip to upload data into the human brain, that a) works at all and b) that works for everyone.If data is represented in each individual human brain the same way, or a method of translating the data into symbols used in each individual brain can be devised, then could a chip like this be used to extract data from one brain and pass it over an internet connection to another brain or brains?What is the function of sleep? running a chip which loads new ‘data’ into the brain may prevent the ‘purpose’ of sleep from being carried out properly , with health problems appearing for the ‘chipped’ person.Potential for misuse, what stops some ‘Manchurian Candidate’ type behaviour data being programmed into the ‘chipped’ brain, which will allow that individual to be triggered as a weapon at a later date?What stops this chip being run during the day to upload a false version of ‘reality’ to the user in real time in order to control them to get them to buy something or vote for a particular political party?If you have a brain chip to internet interface, could you ‘log in’ to someone else’s brain and experience their life, thoughts and emotions or bypass their brains muscle systems control centre and control their bodies.
