00:00

hello guys and girls me mudahar and

00:02

would you get a brain chip put inside

00:04

You Now ladies and gentlemen today I

00:06

actually have seen something that kind

00:08

of blew my mind today I'm a huge fan of

00:10

Technology I'm a huge fan of cyberpunk

00:12

singularities one day I think that we

00:15

probably will be half machine half human

00:18

beings okay now before we get to that I

00:20

just want to stress I'll be long dead

00:22

okay I don't think that's going to

00:23

happen for a little bit of time so

00:25

ladies and gentlemen today I'm looking

00:27

at neuralink okay now you might know

00:30

this company uh Elon Musk owns it like

00:32

many companies he owns Tesla Twitter

00:35

sometimes you get a bit of a mixed bag

00:37

now I'm somebody that just likes looking

00:39

at things objectively so I'm going to

00:41

give a little bit of credit over here

00:42

what I'm about to show you is some

00:44

pretty cool stuff initially when I saw

00:47

it okay and then I went down a rabbit

00:48

hole of brain uh interface companies so

00:52

let's actually look at what's going on

00:54

now neuralink for some quick context and

00:56

history has had a pretty tumultuous

00:59

reveal for instance if you go to their

01:00

website right over here they're pretty

01:02

simple all right they'll actually tell

01:04

you their mission is to create a

01:06

generalized brain interface to restore

01:08

autonomy to those with unmet medical

01:10

needs today and unlock human potential

01:13

tomorrow so for now it's about fixing

01:15

people up who have actual medical

01:17

problems that you know are unmet and

01:19

then tomorrow we download entire [ย __ย ] to

01:21

our brains okay now look I cover

01:24

computer malware and all this crazy

01:26

stuff so anytime a piece of technology

01:29

gets installed in my head if I got to

01:31

start firmware updating a piece of tech

01:34

in my brain that's scary okay this is

01:36

coming from the same guy whose company

01:39

updates a vehicle and has severe issues

01:41

okay let me tell you something right now

01:43

as one of those owners updating a car

01:46

from Elon Musk is kind of a mixed bag at

01:48

the toss of the coin you could take it

01:50

to a service center or actually manage

01:52

to drive it so I can only be scared at

01:54

what a brain interface Chip is going to

01:56

do now looking at the chip it actually

01:58

looks mostly like a watch battery almost

02:00

a a bigger watch battery with these like

02:02

small little threads that I believe

02:04

they're supposed to connect into your

02:06

brain through a surgery that requires a

02:08

robot because no human hands could

02:10

apparently do this and here they like

02:12

show you what's in here they got the

02:14

biocompatible enclosure they've got a

02:16

battery that needs to be charged uh from

02:19

the outside so I assume you just connect

02:21

a little charger to your brain or head

02:24

and and let it wirelessly charge using

02:26

induction which which sounds weird

02:28

almost sounds a little

02:30

painful in a way too I mean that that

02:32

generates heat like crazy and then of

02:34

course you've got like the chips in

02:35

electronics over there low power chips

02:37

and whatnot and then of course the

02:39

threads that Connect into your brain now

02:42

if you're wondering whoa muda can I get

02:44

a brain chip bro they literally have

02:46

first clinical trial is open to

02:48

recruitment so if you're part of the

02:50

United States or Canada and you're 18

02:52

years of age and you're able to consent

02:54

and you got quadropolis parolia vision

02:57

loss hearing loss the inability to speak

02:59

or major limb amputation then please

03:03

feel free to sign up and maybe one day

03:04

you can get brain chipped in your head

03:07

now again one of the actual interesting

03:09

things is if you look into the history

03:10

of it back in the end of 2022 it was

03:13

Reuters that was reporting that the

03:15

company neuralink had killed 1,500

03:19

animals more than 280 sheep pigs and

03:23

monkeys and then of course that was

03:25

experiment since 2018 according to the

03:28

records reviewed by Reuters and they had

03:30

sources with the uh company's animal

03:32

testing operations now the total number

03:35

of animal debts does not necessarily

03:37

indicate that neuralink is violating

03:39

regulations or standard practices many

03:42

companies routinely use animals and

03:43

experiments to advance human Healthcare

03:46

and I'll say right now animal testing

03:48

happens in a lot of Industries the

03:49

automobile industry even in the skincare

03:52

industry like we have oneup now which is

03:54

a great brand by the way go to got one

03:56

up.com uh absolutely do your skincare

03:59

routine in literally one pump a day

04:02

absolutely designed for somebody that

04:04

has stuff to do on a daily basis okay

04:07

but again ladies and Gentlemen even

04:08

dealing with something like this when we

04:10

actually talked to our formulator and we

04:12

actually had discussions internally

04:15

animal testing there is a lot of red

04:17

tape involved with the United States

04:19

federal government so obviously

04:21

neuralink having to get themselves

04:23

tested having to get themselves

04:25

constantly into this trouble didn't look

04:27

that great and then like months later

04:29

after that Elon musk's neuralink

04:32

actually got FDA approval and the FDA is

04:35

like the scariest US Federal agency

04:38

after the Internal Revenue Service okay

04:40

the last agencies you want to [ย __ย ] with

04:42

is the IRS and FDA I would be more

04:45

scared of these two agencies than the

04:47

FBI and the CIA and all these other

04:49

three-letter agencies busting down my

04:51

door I [ย __ย ] you not and of course it was

04:54

actually insane because they got the

04:55

first inhuman clinical trials which is

04:58

what has led to an actual human being

05:00

getting the brain chip into their head

05:03

now if you go to the actual uh neuralink

05:05

YouTube channel literally like 12 hours

05:08

ago they uploaded the neuralink live

05:10

update March 2024 an actual person has

05:14

this chip in their head now the reason I

05:17

have to mute this is because they

05:18

decided to put like I think copyright

05:20

music in the background they just had

05:21

music running this is filmed kind of

05:23

like Mark Zuckerberg crapping on the

05:25

Apple Vision Pro inside somebody's house

05:28

it's got kind of this homey vibe to it

05:30

so again this was literally just shot to

05:32

show people what they actually have

05:33

going so here he's got like a MacBook

05:36

with like chess running on it and of

05:37

course like steam in the background and

05:39

what's interesting is he's actually able

05:41

to move the mouse around through this

05:44

unfortunately the actual image is

05:45

uploaded in like 240p for some reason

05:47

but yes he is actually controlling chess

05:50

uh the actual interface is he's

05:52

interfacing from his brain chip to the

05:55

actual computer so this man is actually

05:56

able to control a computer now and do

05:59

again tasks that you and I normally

06:01

could do uh using the power of their

06:03

brain with telekinesis I guess you could

06:05

say unlocked he actually installed

06:07

telekinetic Powers into their head okay

06:11

can you explain a little bit just to

06:12

people who maybe don't have any context

06:14

on this field or what's going on here

06:16

how are you able to actually move the

06:17

cursor yeah so we started out with a few

06:20

trying out a few different things um we

06:24

basically went from what we call kind of

06:28

differentiating like imagine movement

06:30

versus um attempted movement so a lot of

06:33

what we started out with was attempting

06:35

to move so I would attempt to move say

06:38

my right hand Left Right forward back

06:43

to and um from there I think it just

06:46

became intuitive for me to start

06:49

Imagining the cursor moving um basically

06:53

it was like uh using the force on a

06:56

cursor and I could get it to move

06:58

wherever I wanted just stare

07:00

somewhere in the screen and it would

07:02

move where I wanted it to um which was

07:04

such a wild experience now obviously for

07:08

Nolan over here I'm pretty happy that he

07:10

actually has his quality of life

07:11

improved as I think most people are now

07:14

what's interesting is when he talks

07:15

about like I just imagine I'm doing

07:17

something and he's basically using the

07:18

force yeah I mean I guess that's as

07:20

close to telekinesis as we're kind of

07:22

getting he imagines where he wants the

07:24

mouse to go and the mouse just goes

07:26

there so again this is a pretty huge

07:29

step for this company that I kind of

07:30

expected to just sort of sit down Elon

07:32

Musk is the kind of guy that promises a

07:35

lot of things but I really don't see

07:36

them materialized to the point you know

07:38

like things like the Tesla Robo taxi

07:41

right like the idea of like the Tesla

07:43

fully uh you know autonomous driving

07:45

system not requiring you to constantly

07:47

jiggle the wheel because at that point

07:49

it's not an autonomous driving system I

07:52

might as well just drive the [ย __ย ] car

07:54

myself so it's weird that you know

07:56

you're looking at a guy whose companies

07:57

involve Tesla which you know great

07:59

luxury car brand for EVS but their

08:02

autonomous driving system isn't to the

08:04

level it should be or as promised and I

08:05

think there's other car manufacturers

08:07

like Mercedes that have actually

08:09

superseded Tesla when it comes to that

08:11

Boon in their wallet uh you've also got

08:14

things like Twitter which is you know B

08:16

Down Under the [ย __ย ] and bio crap so

08:18

again there's a lot of Misses but this

08:21

seems like an actual genuine success

08:22

over here right it seems like this is

08:24

something awesome for them to show so

08:26

again I'm glad to see that you know

08:28

people like Nolan actually have their

08:29

quality of life improved and like the

08:31

next steps apparently is to actually go

08:34

beyond and start focusing on fixing a

08:36

lot of people with paralysis maybe one

08:38

day reigniting a lot of these synapses

08:41

and natural like you know um natural

08:44

like currents in their brain in order to

08:46

actually move again or possibly see and

08:49

do things right actually cure a lot of

08:51

medical conditions that exist now to me

08:53

this is kind of weird because I've

08:55

always learned about the brain being

08:57

this like Beast that we still have yet

08:59

to understand I think when you talk to

09:01

anybody right like with in in the terms

09:03

of like neurology uh in terms of

09:05

Neuroscience the brain is still very

09:07

much in a a misunderstood creature we

09:10

still don't know entirely how the brain

09:13

properly works and it's going to take a

09:15

lot more research so maybe this kind of

09:17

stuff can accelerate it may I think

09:20

we're a long ways away from installing

09:22

intelligence and installing stuff into

09:24

our head much like a smartphone but for

09:26

now it seems like what you can do is

09:28

actually control a computer right maybe

09:31

one day he can type things out you know

09:33

write emails all without even touching a

09:35

keyboard or Mouse now do I think you

09:37

should get a [ย __ย ] neuralink should I

09:39

get a neural link I think unless you are

09:41

actually physically debilitated or

09:43

mentally or whatever and you need this

09:45

device to function again in society that

09:48

is the only reason you should go for it

09:49

I don't think you should cosmetically be

09:51

getting this just for the sake of

09:53

getting it okay the last thing I can

09:55

ever trust is a big tech company

09:57

constantly involved into my head that's

09:59

like that [ย __ย ] thing from South Park

10:01

okay don't don't don't be doing that

10:03

don't install the [ย __ย ] to your head

10:06

now I went down the actual Rabbit Hole

10:07

of BCI companies which is brain computer

10:10

interface organizations and you got

10:12

neuralink you've got cognition you've

10:14

got paradromics you've got synchron

10:17

kernel brain gate Black Rock neurotech

10:20

neurable and emotive systems and it just

10:22

keeps going on and on and on so there's

10:25

a lot more companies that are involved

10:26

in the brain interfacing game for

10:29

instance since you've got companies like

10:30

again the cognition which you're

10:32

creating these like brain computer

10:34

interface programs which I guess you put

10:36

this on your head like a standard like

10:38

you know head-mounted device and it's

10:40

got like these little prongs that are

10:41

able to read the brain activity in your

10:44

head you've got brain gate who have been

10:46

around for a while too where their

10:48

actual like uh brain technology for my

10:51

understanding may be slightly less

10:53

invasive like I think you still need to

10:55

get chipped into your head but they use

10:57

like a special Rod that connects up

10:58

there just to actually read brainwave

11:01

patterns for instance one actual clip I

11:04

saw from Seven Years Ago by Stanford was

11:06

actually like an individual who had this

11:09

thing installed to their head and was

11:11

actually typing around in here so again

11:13

they were looking around typing things

11:14

into it and for people who are

11:17

completely disabled getting access to

11:19

technology getting access to accessible

11:21

Services is probably the best thing you

11:23

can actually hope to see so using this

11:25

device that obviously reads brain wave

11:27

patterns they're able to move this dot

11:29

around and interact and typee things out

11:31

for people right now one thing that kind

11:33

of makes me wonder about this too is

11:35

like if this is where we're at where

11:37

we're moving a mouse around I don't

11:39

understand if we necessarily need Super

11:41

invasive brain technology either I

11:43

really think this could probably be done

11:45

with like a

11:46

$237 ey tracker this is the Toby ey

11:49

tracker which if you're like a gamer

11:51

this is one of those like special

11:52

devices you buy if you want to like you

11:54

know show people where you're looking at

11:56

on your monitor or there are certain

11:58

games where you can have like like head

11:59

tracking eye tracking I wonder if this

12:02

could be used instead of actually

12:04

chipping your brain at least for the

12:06

functionalities we've kind of seen I see

12:08

a lot of people getting blown away but

12:10

the more I go down this Rabbit Hole the

12:12

more I realize that brain interfacing

12:14

Technologies and a lot of this stuff has

12:16

already pretty much existed the ey

12:18

tracking stuff is in like from what I

12:20

understand most actual like VR headsets

12:23

these days I think even PlayStation has

12:25

it I think Apple Vision Apple Vision Pro

12:28

has a great ey track ER obviously it

12:30

costs a fair bit I would still say less

12:32

than a neuralink or any of these brain

12:34

interfacing devices and I think even the

12:36

Oculus Quest 3 has ey tracking as well

12:39

too so again I don't understand if we

12:41

necessarily need this stuff to use a

12:43

mouse and keyboard on our system anyways

12:46

but I guess that's like the big

12:48

breakthrough point for a lot of these

12:50

brain interface companies and then it

12:52

gets even insane over here ladies and

12:54

gentlemen back in 2021 I I looked up

12:57

this thing called the neuros Swarm 3

13:00

which apparently it's insane if you read

13:02

about it the researchers behind neuros

13:04

swarm 3 say they're gold coded Nano

13:07

sensor which is about the size of a

13:09

single virus particle a virus particle

13:13

you can even see that with the naked eye

13:15

can travel through the bloodstream and

13:16

across the bloodb brain barrier once

13:19

inside the brain they act like some sort

13:22

of antenna converting neural activity

13:24

into Optical signals that can be sent

13:26

wirelessly to external devices

13:29

now one of the things that I could

13:31

imagine is like actually having like

13:32

full telepathy in this like full

13:35

telekinesis like actually being able to

13:37

talk to somebody like imagine dming

13:38

somebody with a neuralink like you're

13:40

just looking at each other and you can

13:42

just communicate back and forth through

13:44

your like head devices nobody else needs

13:46

to hear it's like the codec from Metal

13:48

Gear Solid the tiny bones in your ear

13:50

only you can hear each other it's crazy

13:52

[ย __ย ] then of course you got other

13:54

devices like synchron for instance where

13:56

again like the the big breakthrough for

13:59

some of these companies is obviously

14:01

interacting with like actual uh devices

14:04

like right over here this person

14:06

apparently has the actual synchron

14:08

device into their head and they're just

14:09

interacting with again the keyboard

14:12

moving a mouse around again I feel like

14:14

a lot of the stuff could possibly just

14:16

be done with ey tracking instead of

14:18

these like super expensive and invasive

14:20

techniques but then again this is also

14:23

meant to interact with numerous devices

14:25

and not just one in general but yeah the

14:28

actual case that every single person is

14:30

showing and it's not just Elon it's like

14:32

all these other companies I feel could

14:33

be done in a much cheaper less invasive

14:36

manner but then again I don't run a

14:37

Brain Company one Brain Company I did

14:39

see though was this one right here it's

14:41

called prophetical and they have a tool

14:44

called Halo the Halo is a tool for

14:46

humans to explore their
