The Neural Lace Tour


Stevie Nicks and Elon Musk finally together in this stunning collection...

Elon
You have the limbic system, 
the cortex 
and a digital layer above the cortex 
that could work well and symbiotically with you



Stevie:
Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself

--Dreams, Fleetwood Mac




Stevie:
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me
My lace

--Leather and Lace, Stevie Nicks


Elon:
If you assume any rate of advancement of AI,
um.......
we will be left behind
by a lot

--We are already cyborgs | Elon Musk | Code Conference


Stevie:
It's only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and...
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell?

--Dreams, Fleetwood Mac


Neural Lace

The concept was first thought up by Iain M. Banks in his Culture novels. In these novels, a neural lace is a mesh-like device that would be implanted in a person directly through the bloodstream, controlling the release of certain neurons using the power of thought.

Musk’s version of the neural lace doesn’t work exactly like that. Musk’s lace seems to be a mesh that would allow such AI to work symbiotically with the human brain. Signals will be picked up and transmitted wirelessly, but without any interference of natural neurological processes. Essentially, making it a digital brain upgrade. Imagine writing and sending texts just using your thoughts.


Stevie:
And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own

--Edge of Seventeen, Stevie Nicks


Elon:
You have a digital version of yourself
a partial version of yourself
online
in the form of your e-mails and social media
and all the things you do...

--We are already cyborgs | Elon Musk | Code Conference


Stevie:
The clouds never expect it
When it rains

--Edge of Seventeen, Stevie Nicks


Elon:
We're IO bound
particularly output bound

--We are already cyborgs | Elon Musk | Code Conference



Stevie:
Heartless challenge
Pick your path and I'll pray

-- Gold Dust Woman, Fleetwood Mac


Elon:
Something
I think
is going to be quite important
— I don't know of a company that's working on it seriously —
is a neural lace



Stevie:
Give to me your leather
Take from me
My lace
Take from me
My lace
Take from me
My lace 

--Leather and Lace, Stevie Nicks


Scientists Just Invented the Neural Lace

A group of chemists and engineers who work with nanotechnology published a paper ... about an ultra-fine mesh that can merge into the brain to create what appears to be a seamless interface between machine and biological circuitry. Called “mesh electronics,” the device is so thin and supple that it can be injected with a needle — they’ve already tested it on mice, who survived the implantation and are thriving. The researchers describe their device as “syringe-injectable electronics,” and say it has a number of uses, including monitoring brain activity, delivering treatment for degenerative disorders like Parkinson’s, and even enhancing brain capabilities.
