Well actually it's interesting about neurons. Neuro transmitters, the things that control who you are, are more numerous than you might think. I want
to find a paper on it, but basically what My medical friend told me is that the total number of neurotransmitters exceed the total number of people
that have ever existed (106 billion). This allows for every human to be a truly unique individual. So I beg to question how any nanite can have
signatures to control over 106 billion items. I mean, the super computers at my school can only render 50,000 molecules. I've heard a few million at
other places. But we are talking about 106 billion here.
Now I have no doubt that the technology will one day be available. But one thing I have noticed is that government ALWAYS does things too soon. or too
late. So if they try this nanobot technology too soon, then many people will be immune and stop it via building an EMP. And if they do it too late,
well we will already have some form of protection.
And really I can tell you that when I "flash" my brain, the thoughts come so rapidly I can't see any first or second gen nano machines to be able
to keep up with the speeds.
We also must realize that there is some evidence that the brain and mine, yes, are different, But that the mind takes precedents. Not to get into the
soul or anything, but user bigfatfurytexan posted me with some evidence that people with either half of the brain removed still retain all their
memories some times. Ask him for the same data. I don't remember where it is.
What I'm saying is that you'll be surprised how the brain adapts and can, in fact, reconfigure itself to resist things. yes we can sway the opinion
of the mind. This will always be true. But maybe I've got a unique perspective on this.
I had an allergic reaction to the chemical aspartame. No I don't have Phenylketonuria, but definably something like it. Never really bothered to get
tested for it. Anyway, some of my earliest memories are being at the hospital getting brain scans trying to figure out why my brain was degrading and
why I had all these mental problems from ADD-like conditions, to other crap. Eventually they realized that the children's vitamins I was taking for a
few months had aspartame and that I was allergic to it. But the damage had been done. My brain was fried.
As a child, the intense burning urge to touch things an even number of times or repeat a sentence was indescribable. I mean, it was like I had two
versions of me in one brain. I was the slave, it was the master. I HAD to do it, or else. But eventually I challenged it. I said NO. I rebelled and
eventually all power that part of me had was gone. Now, only when I am under stress do I listen to it.
My point is simple. My brain learned to adapt. The pain from going against those rituals was intense, but once my brain connected the dots, the power
was gone. I've since learned how to use that part of my brain, and order it around. It can run math simulators during math tests or play a song while
I write something. I can hear music in my mind as if it is playing from a speaker, in full quality.
You have to realize something. The brain is absolutely amazing at adapting. I have full faith that it can, in time, adapt to anything. Even nano bots.
So when, if ever, it happens, I already have the will power to deny it. So I will be immune to the first and maybe second generation of the
And for an added interesting note. I do occasionally eat aspartame these days. I mean, how can you not. It's in so much crap. It does still give me
twitches, but it takes a lot less time to heal from it. It's as if my brain learned how to heal from its poisonous qualities.
A lot of your links depend on the human willingness to listen. It's no different than hypnotism. If you do not accept that it has power over you, it
Have faith friend. We will always win. Evolution ensures it.
