Elon Musk's Plan To Make 'Superhumans' Certainly Seems Like The Beginning Of The Apocalypse 😳

Elon Musk may be in the middle of a legal battle about his Tweets, but he is still making time to do the thing that he is best known for — inventing.


Last week when Musk joined Joe Rogan on The Joe Rogan Experience, he didn't just smoke pot.

He also told Rogan about a company he founded with 8 other people two years ago. That company is called Neuralink.

According to their website, Neuralink is

"developing ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers."

About 20 minutes into The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan and Musk began discussing Artificial Intelligence.

Rogan asked Musk,

"Do you think that it's likely that we will merge somehow or another with this sort of technology and it will augment what we are now? Or do you think it will replace us?"

After some discussion, Musk spoke about his work with Neuralink.

"I think we'll have something interesting to announce in a few months that's better than anyone thinks is possible. Best case scenario, we effectively merge with AI.

It will enable anyone who wants to have superhuman cognition. Anyone who wants. How much smarter are you with a phone or computer or without? You're vastly smarter, actually.

You can answer any question pretty much instantly. You can remember flawlessly. Your phone can remember videos [and] pictures perfectly. Your phone is already an extension of you. You're already a cyborg.

Most people don't realize you're already a cyborg. It's just that the data rate, it's slow, very slow. It's like a tiny straw of information flow between your biological self and your digital self. We need to make that tiny straw like a giant river, a huge, high-bandwidth interface."

Musk also discussed the fact that he

"tried to convince people to slow down AI, to regulate AI. This was futile. I tried for years. Nobody listened."

Rogan proceeded to laugh nervously saying it sounded like a scene in a movie where robots take over.

Many people are drawing major parallels between Rogan and Musk's conversation to Skynet and The Terminator.

AI Apocalypse, anyone? Twitter seems to think so.











Others think Musk is the key to saving us.



Excuse me while I find someplace to live off-grid 😳.
