Elon Musk is the epitome of a Technocrat and Transhuman, both of which are based on Scientism an which rejects all truth outside of ‘science’. Beyond that, it is a fine line to reject truth outside of science-fiction.  TN Editor

Billionaire Elon Musk is known for his futuristic ideas and his latest suggestion might just save us from being irrelevant as artificial intelligence (AI) grows more prominent.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said on Monday that humans need to merge with machines to become a sort of cyborg.

“Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence,” Musk told an audience at the World Government Summit in Dubai, where he also launched Tesla in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“It’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output.”

Musk explained what he meant by saying that computers can communicate at “a trillion bits per second”, while humans, whose main communication method is typing with their fingers via a mobile device, can do about 10 bits per second.

In an age when AI threatens to become widespread, humans would be useless, so there’s a need to merge with machines, according to Musk.

“Some high bandwidth interface to the brain will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem,” Musk explained.

The technologists proposal would see a new layer of a brain able to access information quickly and tap into artificial intelligence. It’s not the first time Musk has spoken about the need for humans to evolve, but it’s a constant theme of his talks on how society can deal with the disruptive threat of AI.

We all need to resist this 5G. There are two initiatives that are dangerous to each of us. First the wireless industry is lobbying to “streamline” the siting of 5G small cell infrastructure. They want to put their infrastructure down our streets – every 300-500 feet. Some may be small antenna’s on light post or utility poles. Some may be 65 feet mini cell towers in our rights of ways on our properties.
