Brain-computer hookup equals mainstream news

The fatal flaw in the human-computer interface

by Jon Rappoport

July 17, 2017

There is a great deal of “utopian research” going on in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) merging with the brain.

Exuberant cheerleaders like Ray Kurzweil are quite confident we are approaching a moment when a computer will exhibit all the power of the human brain.

The definition of “power” in this context is fuzzy. But Kurzweil and others are sure we’re about to uncover the “algorithm” that underlies all brain activity.

They couldn’t be more wrong. Neuroscience has barely scratched the surface of understanding how the brain operates. Cracking the code is not on the horizon.

Most importantly: how would a brain-computer interface work? Hook up your brain to a super-computer, and how does your brain absorb the computer’s data, and how does it make the data known to YOU, the user?

We aren’t talking about a quiz show where you ask a computer a question and it spits out an answer. And we aren’t talking about crude signals to the brain that can provoke physical reactions. This is about the transmission of detailed information.

There is another problem, even assuming a computer could magically fill your consciousness with usable data.

A human-computer interface, endowed with access to a hundred galaxies of stored data, would run up against the problem of vast chronic misinformation in those cosmic warehouses.

This is not something that can be deleted with a program or a committee tasked with making corrective changes.

For example, and here is just one area, medical science is rife with fraud, at many levels, as I’ve demonstrated over and over again for the past 30 years. AI wouldn’t even know where or how to begin analyzing this problem, because…who would set the parameters of such an investigation? Who would even believe such an investigation is necessary?

There is an inherent self-limiting function in AI. It uses, accesses, collates, and calculates with, false information. Not just here and there or now and then, but on a continuous basis.

Think about all the entrenched institutions and monopolies in our society. Each one of them proliferates false information in cascades.

No machine can correct that. Indeed, AI machines are victims to it. They in turn emanate more falsities based on the information they are utilizing.

Each and every false datum generates a wider and wider stream of lies, and the streams, becoming rivers, overlap and produce oceans of contaminated information.

The oceans of false information that circulate in this world—and are loaded into the super-computer—would be yours. The best model I can think of for THAT is mainstream news.

Yes, you’ll have access to instantaneous floods of “mainstream news” info. Congratulations.

“Recognized authorities” would be feeding you data, by way of their vaunted super-computer. This is exactly where the human-AI interface is heading, like a team of horses being driven toward the edge of a cliff above an ocean.

The human-AI connection would be fatally compromised. In journalistic terms, your brain would AUTOMATICALLY be subjected to untold numbers of “mainstream reporters obeying the parameters laid down by their editors and corporate owners.”

The result? Absurdly limited context, deception, fatuous presumption of authority.

If, instead, you want to look for a program that would discount such a presumption and would reject institutional secrecy, a program that would undertake a relentless investigation of the quality of data, there is a potential candidate.

It’s called a human being.

And it’s not a program.

It’s called you.

There is nothing like it.

I’m not writing to inform a super-computer.

I’m writing to individuals, whose consciousness is their own and surpasses what any computer can do by light years.

Super-computers of the future will be nothing more than the super-evening-news.

“Hello, Mr. Smith. I’m your brain. I just received three tons of data from ‘the evening network news’…uh, I mean the wonderful super-computer of all-truth and all-knowing that is leading us into a paradise of wisdom. I will commence transmitting now. Your IQ will rise by twenty points in the next two minutes…excuse me, this just in: a pandemic is breaking out in the UK, Canada, Australia, and the US. There are already six cases. The virus is called X-23-6. The World Health Organization has a vaccine available. See your doctor as soon as possible, or visit a pharmacy in your area. Shots are free.”

I can’t wait.

Sixteen trillion dollars went into the research project to create a brain-computer interface, and this is the result.

It’s sublime, I tell you. Sublime.

HELLO, CITIZEN. WE’RE YOUR LEADERS. ALL THE LIES AND HALF-TRUTHS AND FAKE NEWS WE’VE BEEN FEEDING YOU THROUGH YOUR SCREENS ALL THESE YEARS? NOW WE’RE SHOVELING IT INTO YOU DIRECTLY THROUGH YOUR BRAIN. WE USED TO CALL IT OPERANT CONDITIONING AND MIND CONTROL AND HUMAN PROGRAMMING. NOW WE CALL IT COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS. DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY. THE PROCESS IS AUTOMATIC. YOU WON’T KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING, SO YOU WON’T BE DISTURBED. YOU WON’T KNOW THERE IS ANOTHER REALITY. THEREFORE, WHY WOULD YOU CARE? IT TURNS OUT THAT IGNORANCE IS ACTUALLY BLISS. THIS IS ACTUALLY THE BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS.

    The idea is total fantasy. These people are nuts about turning over their consciousness, what’s left of it, to some external controlling authority. Technology is already supplanting brain function through smart phone dependency, car warning systems, social media. They just can’t get to their ultimate destination fast enough!

  2. Vetch says:

    Thing is, what they call “brain” is not what the real brain is and does. They mean something like mind, intelligence – and that is not restricted to the actual brain. Eg. muscles store memories, intelligence is working in… made by… flowing through the whole human body. (I don’t know that from New Age sites, I learned that in biology and in ergotherapy-school.)

    So this idea of the brain being the container and producer of human intelligence, the master control centre is utter BS. It’s hierarchy all the way, and we’re trained to believe in it and function in this utterly limited way. So yea, what you describe would work. 😛

    Tim Urban wrote a rather lengthy explanation of how Brain Machine Interface would work in a blog on “Wait But Why” website. He was quite thorough to explain how Elon Mush was starting up a new company heading that way, but Tim did have some reservations and one his fears was that our BMIs could be hacked. We laughed because he had no clue that our minds are already being hacked in so many ways, from the insidious thought projection technology which we must assume is now coming through the TVs, and projected at night while we sleep, to the individual attacks by psyche warriors at the beck and call of certain shadow forces within our nation.

    We explained to him about those of the Alien Mind who are empaths and who could enter into our minds to plant Wernickes or bad thoughts to create chaos.

    However, there is another mind at work on our planet who we call the Mind of Man, JeSus said he was the Son of Man. Man can hack our minds, too, but they always do it with Reason and to help and Man has shown us what He can do.

    One day a Man was poking us here and there about some problem we had to the point that we became very irritated and in a fit of annoyance we called Him a “dickhead”. We were totally upset we had done this and apologized profusely, but then this small thought said, “Dickhead is not one of our swear words.” It was then we knew that Man had spoken through us empathetically and called Himself that to show us what He could do, and really what the empaths on the dark side could do and have done.

    Humanity does not have any clue about its true enemy, or the truth of God and how He continually helps us to evolve.

    AI and BMI are places where no one lives; in other words, they are not the “mansions” God has provided for us. They are only tools of the Aline Mind.

    The pressure to conform will be tremendous. You’ll hear, “What!?! You’re not plugged in yet! How on earth do you know anything, shop, drive, bank, think? What are you worried about? The science is settled. Come on, you’re a dinosaur, you’re being a baby, you’re irrational, AI-aphobe, Neanderthal. And more importantly, your nonconformance is putting your life and all of our lives in danger! Yes, nonconformity should be a crime!

  5. John says:

    The original 1956 Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers with Kevin McCarthy is the perfect film which exemplifies humanity today. The only things missing from this movie are the puppeteers who pull the strings.

    The freaks bathing in narcissism who think they know what is best for all of a mankind. The scumbag elites like Obama, Merkel and Macron who believe they are gods and every action they take is a gift to us. What a diabolical and sick society we live in today. Trump is up against a living hell. His actions tell me he is trying to stem the tide of globalism. The ideological liberals are so lost in their group thought they can’t see the huge difference between Trump and the above globalists I mentioned.

    We now live in a society incapable of using logic. These psychopaths are actually rooting for machines to control every aspect of their lives. At no other point in history have people gone so willingly to their enslavement. To buy into the technocracy means buying into statism and conformity. The individual is nearing extinction, the society of human drones have taken over. Does it really matter if they merge with robots? They already exhibit every characteristic of a robot. I am afraid you have missed the transformation Jon, it has already happenened.

    • Jennifer says:

      These psychopaths, John, are people who are lost to the Alien Mind that has been attacking humanity since the beginning of our species and where we seem as each separate individuals, their minds work together, not unlike the hive mind of the Borg. They are many years ahead in their planning to destroy us.

      We see them as actually wanting to be God, thinking that, in their robot-like minds, they want to control everything and will find every avenue to do so, and because of the technology they have given us and using against us, they are making it possible to control our thinking processes and decisions.

      But what Vetch says is true. Our minds are not our brains. Our minds are part of our Speciel Mind which is a part of God unless we allow ourselves to be dissimulated and separated from Him, which drugs of abuse, fluoridated water, and many fluoride containing medications cause to happen.

      There is still hope because there are people like these who comment on Jon’s blog, like yourself, who can gain guildance from God, by asking, and asking, and asking and listening for His guidance. If it happened to us, then it can happen to you. It is the individual who through God will be able to makes changes for the future, so we will have one.

    For an outrageous sum, Kurzweil’s idea promises to make you super intelligent by frying your brain. It parallels Big Pharma’s business model.

  7. Jon, good article, as usual.

    However (underlying) there is a much deeper problem. I outline it as follow in my latest article (which gives you a number of healthy plugs too):

    “…Overrated opinions require a muted discovery tour that is only (or primarily) committed to validating existing belief systems. As all belief systems are responses to rooted guidance (whether progressive symptoms of subservience or bloody-mindedness or not), plausible denial of (contradicting) truth is the commonest and easiest way of anchoring beliefs. Those of sweet tooth would find it implausibly possible to reject chocolate given correct educational stigmata or, should I say, stimuli. Anyone refusing to taste chocolate under any circumstances is in no position to make rational product judgement (though, perhaps, better highlighted by underage sex hysteria), so ignorance capitulates a fait accompli. Rhyme champions reason and that’s why proverbs were used to sell morality in ancient times. Modern day politicians expand erosion of intellect tyranny by their incessant promotion of oversimplifications geared only to skewing truth in favour of commercial objective goals (also usually “verified” by stacked statistics as well). The modern way of labelling or branding is just as effective as proverbs used to be and, perhaps, better.

    The net result is people have woken up as slaves, powerless to think outside their masters’ terms of engagement. Annoying rebels regularly identify the flaws, but, because they are trapped in the same conspiracy bubble as the rest, their rhetoric is largely limited to after-thoughts or musings. Let us take money, for instance. The brightest and best recognise it is “worthless”, but I have failed to find anyone that doesn’t use it. In fact, everyone I know of (without exception) clambers after money as though it was their end salvation. Fixing this, fixing all those prior unnoticed problems (the consequence of deliberate ignorance) that are now apparent takes sacrifice. Indeed, it might take the ultimate sacrifice. Therefore most people, even when vaguely aware, chose the path of relative ignorance and ambivalence to remain plausibly safe. “Affairs of state” are the banes of orated opinions for most people, though many would claim otherwise, are devout cowards. Bravery is not going to war. Bravery is peacefully refusing orders facing a loaded gun. You can generate as many labels and statistics as you like, but truth will never succumb to overrated opinions.”

    Have you noticed that recently, most of the new innovations are here to destroy humans.?

    -:Big Pharma: poison: pills and vaccines.

    – Agriculture:., GMO and pesticides.

    – NSA: Chemtrails who makes you sick.

    – Wi-Fi: who fries your brain.-

    – Scientists: Nuclear bombs to blow the whole world.

    – AI: Robots to render working people poor and irrelevant

    – Self driving cars: You have no power.anymore, Might as well buy a horse.

    – Etc…….

    And now, they want to create a brain-computer interface? This is the sherry on the cake.

    Count me out. I have never been so happy to be in my seventies, I hope I will never see that coming true in my lifetime,.

    This World has gone bat crazy!

    AI could be a blessing in disguise. If you could take any processing program that the brain can run, and run it under AI, then we might come to the realization that some of us, anyway, just run programs all the time in our head. We process info, we handle people using layers of rules and conventions, we set priorities. We make lists and check them off. We guard against the future in light of past or imagined hurts. We make rules for ourselves to follow, set limits. These are all programs that could run under AI. For some of us, that is the totality of our experience. There is no real adventure, no opening up to possibilities that are not firmly grounded to our present experience and knowledge. Because it is not possible to run that as a program.

    What we need is a way to shut down most of the unnecessary programs that keep us busily running on the hamster wheel of life. Maybe dreams are an attempt to do just that. Computers do not dream.

  10. All that money really could have created a paradise for all on this planet….

  11. name hacked by Russian hackers says:

    Ahhh…the techno triumphalists and their technology über alles fantasies.
    Humanity better hope it never happens.
    Lest you think these techno triumphalists come up with these gadgets for your convenience or pleasure, it is for your surveillance and enslavement.
