Elon Musk’s Neuralink brain chip has killed yet another monkey. Nonetheless, steps toward human testing forge forward.
A total of 15 macaque monkeys out of 23 have died at U.C. Davis in a Neuralink-funded project titled “Development of a Large-Scale Brain-Machine Interface in Rhesus Macaques.” By now “the others may be dead too,” says Ryan Merkley, the director of research advocacy for the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
In addition to monkeys, Musk’s company whose slogan is “breakthrough technology for the brain” has also implanted Bluetooth-enabled chips in pigs and sheep in order to connect and communicate with computers via a small receiver.
This technology is brought to us courtesy of NanoTech King and former Harvard professor Charles Lieber who awaits sentencing – not for colluding with the CCP or his 66-plus ethically questionable patents, but for tax evasion.
Neuralink, which began experiments in 2017, has admitted to animals dying, but they deny cruelty. In one 2020 video titled “Animal Care,” employees affirm their pigs are treated properly. Yet if you actually pay attention, you’ll notice the featured hog looks mangled and has a horrific vertical scar down his forehead. It’s macabre and sickening.
If you treat an animal decently before and after you implant machinery into their brain, does that somehow make it proper or humane?
