    If you like to be controlled, then that's the pill for you. No, thank you. Your body dies but your brain lives due to a micro chip, no way. Sounds like a shadow of the mark of the beast. 👎😎

    Key words, if Elon Musk allowed you to. What about the people that are being experimented on with complete disregard to human rights. Sad this started off so shady to begin with. If only you knew!

    Sounds wonderful. All of humanity as one single robot hive mind. No individuality. No privacy. A world where nothing is sacred, not even your experiences or thoughts. He acts like you would have the choice to share your thoughts and experiences. Do you not think that this could be hacked by criminals just like everything else has been? Or your own government or other governments? Nobody should have this kind of power. They'd have access to your most intimate moments, all of your ideas, passwords, financial information. Basically everything you think about. This is beyond sick and this guy yells like he has zero social abilities. Maybe he has Asperger's or something. Sure acts like it.

    If the minds can access the internet, the internet can access the minds. Teaching rats at a distance via networking is cool, but all you need is one switch - called Order 66 - and bam...all the Jedi neurons die and you are effectively a hive mind for Big Corp. Oh, but just one more bite of the apple hyperboloid toroidal field of information? “You could be like God.”

    This guy is actually WARNING everyone to stay away from this technology. Especially at the end. His warning is disguised as a promotion. But he is really telling everyone that this new technology is very dangerous, and we should STAY AWAY!

    They have already did it to almost everybody, they didnt even need a chip, but they certeainly use the electromagnetic frecuencies to code and decode neurosigns. We have to find a way to garantee the free will of the individuals.
