Elon Musk’s Neuralink Monkey Test Subjects Face “Extreme Suffering,” Go Insane and Die

Elon Musk has allegedly gone full Fauci against monkeys.

But I don’t remember the “Occupy Democrats” Twitter account calling for beagle rights when Fauci’s sick behavior was revealed.

The monkey plays pong with its mind, then dies a horrible death.

Elon Musk gets angry at the other oligarchs.

But the reason he does that is because he thinks they’re not doing utopian futurism correctly.

The Guardian:

Elon Musk’s brain chip company Neuralink is defending itself against claims that its researchers abused monkeys in the testing of its products.

Neuralink – which hopes to create a revolutionary interface that would allow humans to control devices with their brains – said in a statement on Monday that its research animals were “respected and honored by our team”. The company was responding to allegations that the animals were tortured and left to die in horrific experiments at its facilities.

In a lengthy complaint filed with the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) said the research caused “extreme suffering” in its test subjects, who “had their brains mutilated in shoddy experiments and were left to suffer and die”. PCRM is a non-profit advocacy organization that promotes a plant-based diet and alternatives to animal testing.

The complaint targets a partnership between Neuralink and the University of California, Davis that was carried out between 2017 and 2020, in which researchers implanted a device “approximately the size of a quarter” into the skull of macaque monkey test subjects.

PCRM obtained hundreds of pages of health records, necropsy reports and other documents related to the $1.4m partnership through California’s open records laws. It said the documents reveal the monkeys suffered “extreme psychological distress” from the “crude surgeries”.

In the complaint, PCRM said Neuralink used a substance known as “BioGlue” that destroyed parts of the monkeys’ brains. It described animals exhibiting substantial psychological effects from the experiments, including anxiety, vomiting, poor appetite, hair loss and self-mutilating behavior including removing their own fingers.

Musk has previously stated that Neuralink’s brain chip technology could have major implications for people with disabilities, tweeting it would “let a paralyzed person tweet faster than a person using their thumbs on a smartphone”, for example.

Imagine being so naive that you believe powerful people invest billions to do this kind of research in order to improve the lives of paralyzed people.

It’s like believing those sign languagers on political speeches are about the deaf.
