I can’t wait to get my bionic arm, legs and my bionic eye !

It is interesting in this post of this breakthrough that the statements, at least from this article, the communication that they get from the person is just about as rudimentary as the beginning of writing itself, it seems.

They weren’t able to glean from his brain, for example, the contemplation of existence is emotional ambivalence. They glean from his brain the most basic and rudimentary communication there is for humans. When you think about writing itself, they weren’t busting out Democraten profundities about the nature of the universe. On the contrary, they were saying I have five oxen over here and 3 bushels of rye. 

Got to start somewhere.

And what an amazing blessing that this science offers to those a couple generations out.

Still, I am just glad that I will be way far gone by the time this stuff takes off.

One response to “Transhuman”

    Serious question. In the mid-1970s there was a TV show, The Six Million Dollar Man. $6MM US dollars in 1978 would be worth about $25MM in 2021. However, give the lower cost of technology, how much would it cost to build the main character, Steve Austin? And what features could I expect to build in a $25MM cyborg?

    FUN FACT: In the 1980s, the Cray supercomputer was all the rage. Today, an iPhone has more computing power as the 1980’s-era Cray. The Cray-1 cost just under $8MM in 1977. As overpriced as iPhones appear to be, they seem to have benefited by substantial tech cost curve movement.

    OK, so not serious, but enquiring minds want to know. 😉
