The definition of “power” in this context is fuzzy.But Kurzweil and others are sure we’re about to uncover the “algorithm” that underlies all brain activity. Neuroscience has barely scratched the surface of understanding how the brain operates. Most importantly: how would a brain-computer interface work?The Avago APDS-9960 offers ambient light and color (as clear, red, green, and blue) measuring, proximity detection, and gesture sensing.

This is not something that can be deleted with a program or a committee tasked with making corrective changes.

For example, and here is just one area, medical science is rife with fraud, at many levels, as I’ve demonstrated over and over again for the past 30 years.

By swiping your hand over a sensor, you can control a computer, microcontroller, robot, etc.

One manufacturer has even created a touchless toilet that flushes when you move your hand over the tank.

AI wouldn’t even know where or how to begin analyzing this problem, because…who would set the parameters of such an investigation? He maintains a consulting practice for private clients, the purpose of which is the expansion of personal creative power.

Who would even believe such an investigation is necessary? It uses, accesses, collates, and calculates with, false information. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, he has worked as an investigative reporter for 30 years, writing articles on politics, medicine, and health for CBS Healthwatch, LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe.

The best model I can think of for THAT is mainstream news. The World Health Organization has a vaccine available. WE USED TO CALL IT OPERANT CONDITIONING AND MIND CONTROL AND HUMAN PROGRAMMING.

Yes, you’ll have access to instantaneous floods of “mainstream news” info. “Recognized authorities” would be feeding you data, by way of their vaunted super-computer. I just received three tons of data from ‘the evening network news’…uh, I mean the wonderful super-computer of all-truth and all-knowing that is leading us into a paradise of wisdom. Your IQ will rise by twenty points in the next two minutes…excuse me, this just in: a pandemic is breaking out in the UK, Canada, Australia, and the US. See your doctor as soon as possible, or visit a pharmacy in your area. Sixteen trillion dollars went into the research project to create a brain-computer interface, and this is the result.

There is another problem, even assuming a computer could magically fill your consciousness with usable data.

A human-computer interface, endowed with access to a hundred galaxies of stored data, would run up against the problem of vast chronic misinformation in those cosmic warehouses.

Each one of them proliferates false information in cascades. Each and every false datum generates a wider and wider stream of lies, and the streams, becoming rivers, overlap and produce oceans of contaminated information. ALL THE LIES AND HALF-TRUTHS AND FAKE NEWS WE’VE BEEN FEEDING YOU THROUGH YOUR SCREENS ALL THESE YEARS? YOU WON’T KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING, SO YOU WON’T BE DISTURBED.
