MASSDEVICE ON CALL — A handful of consumer tech companies are selling neural stimulation devices that they say can improve cognition and sharpen focus, but the tech may pose unexamined risks to users.
Brain stim maker Foc.us markets its headsets primarily to video gamers, saying that their device can help "overclock" the brain and make synapses fire faster, but the technology is based on medical devices that come with downsides, especially for some users who are making their own devices at home, NPR reported.
The devices build on technology used medically for everything from epilepsy to depression. Medical and military researchers have experimented with the technology in non-medical purposes, and many have found significant improvements in learning retention associated with transcranial direct current stimulation, or tDCS.
Even proponents of the technology, however, warned that the devices need FDA oversight and proper controls to ensure people aren't getting hurt, NPR reported.
Phil Chuppa Mindclones are alive, just not the same kind of life that we are accustomed to. They are functionally alive, albeit with a different structure and substance than has ever existed before. Yet, that is the story of life. Before there were nucleated cells, eukaryotes (of which we are comprised), such things had never been seen before – not for nearly two billion years. That is time duration that bacterium had an exclusive claim to life on earth. Before there were multicellular creatures there were only single cell creatures – from their perspective, the first slime molds were not so much a life form but a community of single cell creatures. And so the story goes, down through the descent of man. We must judge life based upon whether it streams order upon itself – self-replicates pursuant to a Darwinian code and maintains itself against the tendency to dissemble – and not get picky over what it looks like or what flavor of Darwinian code it uses. Using this objective yardstick, vitology will be alive.
Phil Chuppa that article takes forever to get the point but there it is.^^^^
Jason Otjens I believe this to be true when we are already living in a virtual world just a copy of the one that haves been destroyed we are just a bunch of avatars programed into a so called life on a time line
News World-first experiment achieves direct brain-to-brain communication in human subjects BEC CREW THURSDAY, 04 SEPTEMBER 2014
Donald Marshall Been done... Mindvoice. You can do a lot with it.
Dee Saunders its gone "official" . they getting braver...
Bella Donna Marie This is freaky ...
Phil Chuppa The team achieved this world-first feat by fitting out one of their participants - known as the emitter - with a device called an electrode-based brain-computer (BCI). This device, which sits over the participant’s head, can interpret the electrical currents in the participant’s brain and translate them into a binary code called Bacon's cipher. This type of code is similar to what computers use, but more compact.
"The emitter now has to enter that binary string into the laptop using her thoughts,” says Francie Diep at Popular Science. "She does this by using her thoughts to move the white circle on-screen to different corners of the screen. (Upper right corner for "1," bottom right corner for "0.") This part of the process takes advantage of technology that several labs have developed, to allow people with paralysis to control computer cursors or robot arms."
Phil Chuppa I think theyll use this to promote getting a person chipped, try to make it look like an advantage to using this tech.
Adair Dfwtf Sheppard Fuuck..
Danny Dion All the info don has said is slowly being released drip drip
Tracie Eden Mcenroe Validation.
Donald Marshall Yep
Tracie Eden Mcenroe And why you could make the music, !
Donald Marshall I've used mindvoice as a tool to make songs yep. Sometimes not.
Tracie Eden Mcenroe This info wouldnt be around without the letter from you. They used it in programming visuals and red herrings for the new age but nothing close to your info. So glad its gathering steam, some people won't except the truth even if a fish slapped around the head .
Donald Marshall I'm so relieved.
Donald Marshall The stuff sounds so Star Trek. In the beginning I thought I would fail.
Donald Marshall Figured I would be dead by now.
Tracie Eden Mcenroe Believe it or not it's relieving for us , too hard to watch and listen to websites and still be in the dark, not now. and more happens , its all in relative.
Celine O'carroll exactly Tracie...it is a relief to have the missing pieces of the jigsaw.
Phil Chuppa DARPA's new Ground X-Vehicle Technology project aims to design tanks with less armor, but are faster and more agile as a result. Now, in the movies, we always see these beefy military vehicles rolling along slowly to action, so faster, grenade-dodging tanks might be a bit hard to imagine. Thankfully, the agency released a concept video that shows how exactly its advanced tanks can avoid getting shot at. Apparently, they will have the capacity to duck (fold low into the ground) and swerve out of the way the moment they detect threat coming their way. DARPA will work on designing these vehicles for the next 24 months, so hit play on the video below, because it'll take a long time before you see the real deal.

“A very interesting book just hit the market. Written by Martine Rothblatt -- apparently she is America's top paid female CEO -- its title is Virtually Human: The Promise -- and the Peril -- of Digital Immortality. The subject is digital clones, and Rothblatt goes into depth about what they are, when they are coming, and the likelihood they eventually will have equal human rights.
The premise is fascinating, and I now can foresee a future when we won't be able to survive successfully without one -- and that future is coming damned fast.
A Digital Clone
It's interesting thinking about this. As you might recall, a few years back there was a lot of talk about creating biological clones and the need for huge bans preventing the practice for any reason except, possibly, organ harvesting. I think people were scared that these things would become monsters or some such.
The thing is, if you were to print a 3D copy of yourself, it basically would be a vegetable that was good only for organ harvesting, because it would be an adult without any skills -- couldn't walk, talk, feed itself, comprehend, etc. Even if you taught it all of those things, it wouldn't be you, which I think was kind of the goal -- to create a form of immortality by creating copies of yourself.
Granted, if you could transplant the brain, then having a brand new body every 20 years until your brain failed could be a superset of plastic surgery. It might slow down dementia, but eventually you'd have to deal with the brain problem. Otherwise, you'd just be a demented person with a young body.
A digital clone is an electronic copy of your personality. Virtually Human describes how one of the first digital clones was created and interacted with.
A digital clone wouldn't be built as you were built. It wouldn't come into existence biologically and then duplicate every one of your experiences, interactions and learning moments. Instead, it would be created to emulate you and to learn largely by observing or being programmed to act as you now do. Strangely, the end result would be far more likely to be a match than if you tried the impossible task of growing it as you were grown.
Advantages of a Digital Clone
One of the big advantages of a digital clone would be that since it would exist in a computer, it wouldn't have hormones. It wouldn't have the animalistic parts of the brain that often drive humans to be inconsistent -- to do what, in hindsight, are stupid things, because of emotions. One of the interesting things is that without those aspects, it isn't a perfect clone either, so the more stable it is in relation to you, the less like you the clone is -- the less it actually is a clone.”
Hippie Lovegods They think they are writing about the future ~~~
Hippie Lovegods Jacking and snatching someone with a chip seems easier ~
Hippie Lovegods Just before she’s killed, she successfully downloads herself into the most intelligent machine she has available – the prototype for the ninth generation of Sexbots. Now, Susan is Number Nine, dead but somehow alive, -<<<CHIPHEAD
Hippie Lovegods Dead but somehow alive ….Or Undead Chiphead per Donald….
Lee Ann Hand Hmmm, maybe we are just like this to the aliens. We were created to be experimented on and to be played with...
Dolly Valentine Would'nt the soul have to be the same size as it is in a human regular size and if so how tiny can a human be made to be and still have a human soul? Isn't there a difference between a human soul and the soul inside a small animal? And when these gm micro humans first breathe don't they get a soul? I think of these things right away and so had to ponder about it out loud cause wow... this is so crazy like really playing God.
Donald Marshall No, I've been in oversized and miniature clones.
Dolly Valentine I read the article now and it says they would be the size of micro chips. You were never made that tiny right? I don't know maybe the soul of a human is or can be reduced in size or expand; its all so mysterious.
Donald Marshall Not that small lol

Freaky: The Department of Defense has awarded a research contract to the University of Texas at San Antonio for brain-controlled drone research. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.
Per the university’s release on these brain-controlled unmanned aerial vehicles:
Current UAVs must have a ground station that relays instructions from a human operator to an aerial vehicle, but ground stations are static and can restrict soldiers and their units from moving freely.
Using new electroencephalogram (EEG) equipment that UTSA recently acquired through a separate Department of Defense grant and working cooperatively with Yufei Huang, UTSA professor of electrical and computer engineering, [Daniel] Pack, Huang and their teams hope to eliminate the need for ground stations by extracting vehicle control signals directly from brain signals of a soldier operating one or more aerial vehicles.
That’s right — they’re talking about not just one drone, but groups of brain-controlled drones, too.
Believe it or not, UTSA isn’t even the only university working on brain-controlled drones — watch the videos below. If any of this weirds you out, just be grateful that nobody’s working on drones that control brains. OR ARE THEY?
Phil Chuppa And incredibly, it worked. The researchers successfully restored the monkeys' decision-making skills even though they were still dealing with the effects of the cocaine. Moreover, when duplicating the experiment under normal conditions, the monkeys' performance improved beyond the 75% proficiency level shown earlier. In other words, a kind of cognitive enhancement had happened.
Phil Chuppa neuro-scientists are not right thinking people they need a hug or smack to the head or somethin jeez......

The collider complex is initially designed to smash together electrons and their anti-matter counterparts, and later more massive protons, at velocities approaching the speed of light. This process hopes to recreate, inside the accelerator, the hyper-energy conditions that dominated following the Big Bang, physicists aim to explore the origins of matter, energy, and space-time. China's bigger collider will ultimately be able to reach higher energy levels than CERN; this might help physicists discover a new range of particles beyond those already charted in the Standard Model of Particle Physics.
Phil Chuppa ^^^^ A proposal by China to build a “Higgs factory” by 2028 - a 52 km underground ring that would smash together electrons and positrons - has raised the possibility of the country coming to the forefront of particle physics.
If approved, the project could overtake the 27 km Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Europe’s particle-physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland.
Collisions of these fundamental particles would allow the Higgs boson to be studied with greater precision than at the relatively smaller LHC, Nature reported.
According to the scientists at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) in Beijing, the proposed $3 billion machine is within technological grasp and is considered conservative in scope and cost.
China hopes that it would also be a stepping stone to a next-generation collider - a super proton-proton collider - in the same tunnel.
The machine would be a big leap for China. The country’s biggest current collider is just 240 metres in circumference.
But China now has “the confidence, for the first time, to propose an ambitious new machine,” said Ian Shipsey, an experimental physicist at University of Oxford.
”China wanted to work towards a more immediate goal than a super collider by 2035. You cannot just talk about a project which is 20 years from now,” IHEP director Yifang Wang told the gathering at the International Conference on High Energy Physics in Valencia, Spain, recently.
According to Wang, China would welcome international funding contributions and if there is a lot of support, the ring size could be expanded to 80 km.
”But the country will not wait for collaborators before pressing ahead,” he added.
Phil Chuppa MINORITY REPORT.......... RNM works remotely to control the brain in order to read and detect any criminal thought taking place inside the mind of a possible perpetrator. Research studies have shown that the human brain thinks at a rate of about 5000 bits per second and does not have the capacity to compete with supercomputers performing via satellites, implants and biotelemetry. The human brain has a distinctive set of bioelectric resonance system. For the RNM system, supercomputers are being used and, thus, with its help, supercomputers can send messages through an implanted person's nervous system in order to influence their performance in a desired way. RNM has been developed after about 50 years of neuro-electromagnetic involuntary human experimentations. According to many scientists, within a few years it is expected that DNA microchips will be implanted in the human brain which would make it inherently controllable. With RNM, it will be possible to read and control a person's emotional thought processes along with the subconscious and dreams. At present, around the world, supercomputers are monitoring millions of people simultaneously with the speed of 20 billion bits per second especially in countries like USA, Japan, Israel and many European countries.RNM has a set of certain programs functioning at different levels, like the signals intelligence system which uses electromagnetic frequencies (EMF), to stimulate the brain for RNM and the electronic brain link (EBL). The EMF Brain Stimulation system has been designed as radiation intelligence which means receiving information from inadvertently originated electromagnetic waves in the environment. However, it is not related to radioactivity or nuclear detonation. The recording machines in the signals intelligence system have electronic equipment that investigate electrical activity in humans from a distance. This computer-generated brain mapping can constantly monitor all electrical activities in the brain. The recording aid system decodes individual brain maps for security purposes.
