Neuralink and Dr. Peter Breggin
Dr Peter Breggin, a psychiatrist, fears the human race could become subservient to artificial intelligence. He believes trans-cranial direct current stimulation and Neuralink, a trans-cranial implant designed by the Elon Musk Company, is hazardous. He believes it is worse than the psychiatry we have now.
Dr. Breggin has written more than a dozen bestselling books on psychiatry and the drug industry. He’s frequently referred to as “the conscience of psychiatry” because he’s been able to successfully reform the psychiatric profession, abolishing one of the most harmful practices, namely lobotomies, and other experimental psycho-surgeries.
He was the first to take a public stand against lobotomies as a young man, and was able to change the field as a result. He’s featured in Aaron and Melissa Dykes’ excellent documentary, “The Minds of Men.”
Neuralink and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
The FDA has approved electrodes on the heads of children to leave them on all night long to give them low voltage stimulation, which is going to go through the skin, back up the nerves, all the way to the frontal lobes in an entirely disruptive hammer-like, crushing way. It’s going to blunt the kids. It’s horrible. They studied it for four weeks and approved it, if you can imagine that.
It’s low voltage, but we know it disrupts brain waves. It’s bizarre that they approved this. I started to take this on and then, or actually through Aaron and Melissa [Dykes], I found out about what was being done by Elon Musk. What’s interesting to me is that while Musk is so brilliant, he’s stupid about the brain. That’s probably because the neurosurgeons and psychiatrists he consults are stupid about the brain.
I mean they’re just stupid. He wants to put in multiple threadlike electrodes into the brain, into webs of neurons, and put in low voltage stimulation. This is insane. The brain can’t tolerate this. He hopes to [be able to] communicate but there’s not going to be any communication.
The brain isn’t going to talk to these electrodes. That’s not how the brain works. The brain talks to itself. It’s not going to talk to Elon Musk [or anyone else] and he’s going to disrupt the brain talking to itself. It’s a terrible thing to do.
I wish somebody who knows Elon Musk would say, ‘You ought to talk to Peter Breggin. He says your consultants are stupid.’ He’s already planning to try to get FDA approval for some neurological disorders and that’ll be the beginning of the onslaught.
Darpa and Neuralink Development
Here’s the really deadly part — a part to really think about and close with — and that is that the defense department, DARPA, is funding Musk.
The Dykes found out that the machine is going to be used to sew in electrodes … through the funding of DARPA and work through UCLA, which has always been murderers of the brain. We shut down programs at UCLA going way back. We shut down a lot of different kinds of programs in my anti-psychosurgery campaign.
This is the new cutting edge that I’m trying to get across to people… If you go to my YouTube channel and look at [my interview with] the Dykes … I’m focusing on [the impact of] all the electronics.
Elon is probably developing Neuralink because he’s concerned about the integration of artificial intelligence, which is coming. He thinks one of the preservation strategies is to allow us to sort of keep pace with these advances.
A reporter who works for Elon Musk posted an article about Neuralink along with an interview of Musk done by Joe Rogan in 2020. You can access that HERE to learn more about Neuralink from Musk’s point of view.
