Thought Leaders

Technology implanted in a brain is not an original idea; yet, when someone actually tries to create such technology they are considered either insane or a visionary. Does this mean they shouldn’t follow those ideas? If they end up making major technological advances it could potentially pay off in the end. However, there is definitely danger in doing things without enough information. Fearing the worst case scenario leads to inaction and no new innovations. The question remains of whether the worst case scenario is worth upsetting the status quo. As an individual it likely would not be; but someone else, somewhere else, may not feel the same way which creates an existential crisis. To be the one on the breaking edge, ensuring your standards are met for the technology of tomorrow; or to be a non participant, ensuring that come the worst case scenario your name at least won’t be a part of it. Standing on a moral high ground never felt so wrong.
