Feds investigating Musk’s brain implant company

One of the great contradictions of the conservative hive mind is its coronavirus vaccine denialism–claiming falsely that Bill Gates was using the vaccines as a way to inject tracking chips into unaware dupes (they claim)–compared to its worship of a man who makes no bones about wanting to insert computer chips into people.  Now the addled conservative mind will think this is part of The Deep State Conspiracy:

After receiving internal complaints about animal cruelty and other issues, federal regulators have opened an investigation into Elon Musk’s medical device company, Neuralink, which Musk foresees implanting chips into people’s heads, Reuters reports.

Neuralink hopes to develop implants that can be inserted into the nervous system or brain of human patients as a potential treatment for neuromuscular disorders.  But we all know Musk wants to turn everyone into social media posting drones who pack Twitter with praise of the South African’s gelatinous physique. 

The investigation was initiated by complaints from people who work with the company, claiming that trials are being rushed resulting in animal trial subjects being tortured and euthanized for faulty scientific processes.  Sources with knowledge of the investigation say authorities cited the Animal Welfare Act as basis for the probe.

According to Reuters, Neuralink has killed about 1,500 animals, including more than 280 sheep, pigs and monkeys, following experiments since 2018.  Employees and outside observers note that Neuralink’s process depends upon animal testing.

Musk himself has been pushing employees to move experimentation along faster.  After reading a report of a competitor in Europe that developed an implant to help a paralyzed man walk, Musk emailed his employees, “We could enable people to use their hands and walk again in daily life!” he wrote to staff at 6:37 a.m. last February.

Ten minutes later, he sent a follow-up message, y’know… in case anyone was in the office before 7 a.m.: “In general, we are simply not moving fast enough. It is driving me nuts!”
