“HI, EVERYBODY. MY NAME IS BRYAN JOHNSON, AND I WOULD LIKE TO PUT A CHIP IN YOUR BRAIN.”
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJV)
NTEB EDITOR’S NOTE: Remember when people were so afraid of “being tracked” and swore to not be a part of “the system”? That lasted right up until 2007 with the iPhone smartphone revolution, now billions of people carry the most sophisticated tracking devices known to man in their pockets all day every day. The first step was the get everyone in front of a computer, 1993-2007. Step 2 was to get the computer on people, 2007-2017. The third and final step will be to get the technology none of us can live without inside of us via microchip implants, 2018-2025. When Antichrist shows up, his mark will just be the latest and coolest implantable device sold to a lost world filled with people already wired. And oh, Bryan Johnson is a former Mormon who became a devout atheist who believes his is his own god who controls his own life. Amazing, isn’t it?
Bryan Johnson isn’t short of ambition. The founder and CEO of neuroscience company Kernel wants “to expand the bounds of human intelligence”. He is planning to do this with neuroprosthetics; brain augmentations that can improve mental function and treat disorders. Put simply, Kernel hopes to place a chip in your brain.
“My hope is that within 15 years we can build sufficiently powerful tools to interface with our brains,” Johnson says. “Can I increase my rate of learning, scope of imagination, and ability to love? Can I understand what it’s like to live in a 10-dimensional reality? Can we ameliorate or cure neurological disease and dysfunction?”
It may sound far-fetched, but Johnson has a track record of getting things done. Within his first semester at university, he’d set up a profitable business selling mobile phones to fellow students. By age 30, he’d founded online payment company Braintree, which he sold six years later to PayPal for $800m. He used $100m of the proceeds to create Kernel in 2016 – it now employs more than 30 people.
BRYAN JOHNSON, WHO FOUNDED THE COMPANY, PRESENTED THE IDEA OF A “BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE”, WHICH WILL ALSO ALLOW US TO COMMUNICATE WITH MACHINES.
It would also give people the capabilities to solve incredibly complex problems in a matter of seconds.
Johnson said: “I’d argue this is a necessity for the future and for our relevance.”
This is due to fears mankind will potentially be useless in a world dominated by machines that can basically do most jobs.
He explained: “My definition of human is the fact that I can be anything.
“I consider myself to be cognitively impaired because I am limited by my biases, by my blind spots. I don’t want the limitations, I don’t want those constraints, I want to break open. What is everybody so scared about losing? Do we not spend our life trying to correct ourselves? I’m incredibly frustrated being human.”
