When I heard Elon Musk was starting a company to connect the brain to computers, I was pretty excited. I really like computers and believe that sentient beings could eventually move from biological to non-biological entities. Our very own late biological metamorphosis would be nice way to look at it. I have had a little time to think about it, and I've realized, I have some habits when it comes to technology that might not play out well if the technology was ME.
1. I tend to take my devices apart just to see the insides.
I can just imagine getting home with my new robot self, and immediately I start taking things apart just to see how I work. Equally disturbing would be changing the Operating System, although...if I'm the Operating System and I change me, am I still myself? Then...being the guy who wants to see what will crash my system might also be something that should discourage me from eagerly anticipating the whole Neuralink thing.
