    10:34 ” We are no longer will be this Isolated human been, we are going to be connected to everything ”
    Wow, are we now ?
    The question is how much you know about nature ser ?

  2. aaronc158 on November 5, 2018 at 6:56 pm

    These egg heads really think this is great , this is not for the benefit of society it is for more control and power, this has to end before were put into a technological prison from which we can’t escape!!!

  3. Sam Rapp on November 5, 2018 at 6:56 pm

    scary stuff. this is the beginning of the end of humanity as we know it. all decent people need to put an end to this before we turn ourself’s into The Borg

  4. Yea buddy on November 5, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    I agree with Elon. Since we are now discovering this tech, more than likely we are already in a simulation, Russian doll theory so to speak.

  5. bbd 666 on November 5, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    shut up please

  6. Tom Razzle on November 5, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    This guys a monkey that will destroy us all.

  7. Kenneth young on November 5, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    As someone deeply religious I am excited…not disturbed. I find most people on here are paranoid and have watched too many movies. The Terminator and the matrix are movies! Not reality people. Technological innovation is good!

  8. Koko Popart on November 5, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    If being part of the universal VR hive mind means sharing mindspace with this shouting guy, then no thanks.

  9. 01111011111101etc on November 5, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    Even "low-intensity" smartphones are harming the minds of people, so that they cannot stand to spend five minutes thinking by themselves any more. This future technology will totally wreck people!

  10. Ami Rajpal on November 5, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    Can someone say the Borg

  11. 여준 on November 5, 2018 at 7:04 pm

    Crime and control. No more humanity. Only suspicion and depression.

  12. shyhil deo on November 5, 2018 at 7:04 pm

    Wont that be cheating in fornite?

  13. Entity Cube on November 5, 2018 at 7:05 pm

    How to fix bricked brain?

  14. Dheerendra Singh Choudhury on November 5, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    I am from India and world know about me very well, world practices on me through this device, on my experience I forget how to live in present, I only think about past past past☠️☠️☠️

  15. higgs on November 5, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    Did he say we as gods like god?

  16. Lou Skunt on November 5, 2018 at 7:07 pm

    im laughing and crying at the same time, idk if im happy or sad

  17. Stephanie Kay on November 5, 2018 at 7:08 pm

    Sounds potentially dangerous and gives me pause IMHO.. I can see ppl wearing this tech up for injuries and alts dimensia diseases but think a moment… a hive mind? Hackable? No ty.. I’ll wait for the millionth sec patch not to mention 0 day exploits that’ll manifest like cockroaches.. lemme know how this works out!! (^.~)

  18. IS - BE on November 5, 2018 at 7:10 pm

    …sounds like a can of worms. Mind control is the future our children can look forward to. Yikes

  19. Claudio Diffuccia on November 5, 2018 at 7:10 pm

    So… You can transfer memories and data. That also means you can delete memories and data. That means that only a few will decide what we know and what not. Right now, media is already playing with us by feeding partial or wrong information. But we’re still able to think of our own. With the tech he describes so passionate, you won’t be able anymore to define what is true and what not. This tech basically means end of individuality and freedom when applied to a society as ours. Should be prevented.

    NON INVASIVE TECHNOLOGY ONLY, see Emotiv. We need this. The brain emits signals a few inches from the scalp with every thought, easy old stuff to operate anything hands free. Pair that with optical tracking + fitbit style/heartrate monitoring + optical cortex broadcasting (which I know can be done) and you can simply wear some sort of minor smart device and perform ‘phone’ operations hands free. No implants, no magic, everything but the visual part is here. It would be exactly like using a phone. Integrate 5g stuff, the cloud and optional data collection/sharing, can you imagine? Ever used Lark, S Health or etc. fitness trackers for a few months? It can help show you bad habits and such, right? Well this could show you over time what colors soothe you, what clothes you’d like best when shopping online, what people/places/situations cause you stress, life and habits advice, and so on. Know when your boss is crabby before you get to the office, if they choose to share data. Know exactly what your husband wants for christmas. Turn it off or adjust at will, it would have settings, lol. Emotiv has proved through a lot of work that implants are not needed, that’s silly. Humans emit fields.

  22. John Pelfrey on November 5, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    The fact that this guy is excitedly oblivious to the detrimental ramifications of this technology. Scary naivety equals oops!

  23. John Smith on November 5, 2018 at 7:17 pm

    the monkey! 4:46

  24. WholeTruth on November 5, 2018 at 7:20 pm


  25. JCT on November 5, 2018 at 7:21 pm

    Christ this is getting scary.. when we evolve past simply downloading memories what will we become? Just consciousness inside machines? will we become bodyless and simply exist as information?

  26. stonah94 on November 5, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    How is this not terrifying to everyone

  27. Dennis Crosby on November 5, 2018 at 7:27 pm

    What happened to the old Brian?

  28. Martureo Martus on November 5, 2018 at 7:29 pm

    I have never heard of such a gloomy and scary revelation come true, and with such an excited messenger revealing the horrors yet to come, – wow – just wow.

  29. Genealogia Polaków on November 5, 2018 at 7:30 pm

    why do you screaming ?!?!?!?!??!

  30. Dallin Johnson on November 5, 2018 at 7:30 pm

    nothing says I’m perfectly sain like yelling at strangers about telepathic robo monies

  31. nathan bell on November 5, 2018 at 7:31 pm

    Those poor monkeys

  32. Kerstin on November 5, 2018 at 7:32 pm

    batshit insane.. *WE COULD LIFE MULTIPLE LIVES*… hahaha.. somewhere in some meaningless augmented reality..

  33. Julien Pierre on November 5, 2018 at 7:34 pm

    we need ETHIC !!!

  34. drand co on November 5, 2018 at 7:34 pm

    this dude is high as a kight. its one thing to get a bug on the computer; imagine your mind getting a bug. google ceo left to join facebook project that will allow brain Facebook interface. she says they will only be able to read your thoughts that you have intention to share; BS. she is wearing a chip tatoo that supports the interface. people, it isn’t in the future. it is now. i don’ think our society is evolved sufficiently to ethically take care of each other with this technology.

  35. Christian Newman on November 5, 2018 at 7:35 pm

    Why is he yelling if he has a microphone?

  36. CarimboHanky on November 5, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    8:07 yeah right…

    lets have everyones brain chipped so governments can control people even easier.

  37. Still Here on November 5, 2018 at 7:41 pm

    Who is ‘They’?

  38. corysagaming on November 5, 2018 at 7:41 pm

    I cant wait to watch Jesus destroy all of this. Armageddon is going to be quite the show. Ill be eating popcorn with the Amish while it all goes down.

  39. Sira Mike on November 5, 2018 at 7:42 pm

    if brain infection from foreign germs can be stop, i’ll be down to get that brain chip.

  40. Anya Mae on November 5, 2018 at 7:42 pm

    Those who think this is the answer to their lifes problems and think it will make humanity better don’t understand the full scale of change it will bring.. and not in a good way

  41. Michael Tierney on November 5, 2018 at 7:43 pm

    Problem is that our technology will out pace our spiritual development/maturity. Facebook is a perfect example. This would be fine with a peaceful, loving and benign species. But humanity??? Mind control via human brain/computer interface will bring untold terrors and horrors to this planet. And the rise of the "thought police"! BTW, even as there is no more private property, neither will our minds be privately owned/controlled by "us"! The "mind eaters" are here!

  42. manuel sanchez on November 5, 2018 at 7:44 pm

    H. Clinton needed this implanted on every one head back on 2016.

  43. Hiram Abiff From Sirius on November 5, 2018 at 7:44 pm

    If you can’t get a single positive comment on a youtube video then where is the support coming from?

  44. Sirius Magus on November 5, 2018 at 7:45 pm

    2 things. 1 – who is the gate keeper for the data and which group can afford the chip??
    2 – he has to realise that in that scenario everyone would then know exactly which sextoy he used with his boyfriend the night before and unfortunately experienced it too. Yauk

  45. Matteo Comastri on November 5, 2018 at 7:46 pm

    I think this guy watches too much StarTrek (Borgs)

  46. Lucas Cagle on November 5, 2018 at 7:49 pm

    technologies are neutral the investors are not and it is costly stuff urban operations will never be the same scary stuff like the bank robber diamond heist card trick n what not except real time stratagy

  47. Tiffany Contreras on November 5, 2018 at 7:50 pm

    1st 30 secs and he says globe, the earth is flat stationary and enclosed

  48. White Night on November 5, 2018 at 7:51 pm

    Make me a God !

  49. Jonathan P on November 5, 2018 at 7:54 pm

    1:30 “Old Brians”

  50. Lucas Cagle on November 5, 2018 at 7:54 pm

    he certainly goes on to go the extra 9 yards in the future potentials of this tech some of it seem more than a bit out of reach to some degree however much of it is being tested on random people already who gain nothing but torment and absolutely no benefit
