Have you ever considered running electrodes into your own brain? Like to say stimulate sensations of well being or other custom sensations?
What do you think would be involved? Is this something that could be done outside of a lab?
Ancient peoples survived trepanation, and the brain itself feels no pain, it seems to me the major problem would be placement and blood vessel avoidance.
I have a dream of being able to enter a lucid dream state, mechanically. I think this could be achieved by running a lead to the area of the brain responsible for spacial or social orientation and stimulating it when I enter rem sleep, so that when I’m in a dream state my awareness of my location is enhanced, so that I would pick up on where I am and what I was doing and hopefully realize I’m dreaming.
In any case I’ve always said that the extreme body mod crowd are budding transhumanists. You are the first to make that claim a reality.
By existing you prove my point.
I appreciate that.
Keep up the good work.
