The whole project I have in mind is rather major - at least for a doctor, it would seem that way. But I can’t approach anyone with an outline of the entire thing.
I need to play the credibility escalation game: first implant minor subdermal stuff (that’s done), then a few things more substantial (that’s in a month), build credible human enhancement-oriented applications around them (that’s done), write up a true project - you know, with requirements, objectives, procedure, estimated risk/benefit assessment, possible future applications to help disabled people, and possibly a powerpoint to go with it (that’s done, save for the powerpoint), then approach a serious doctor with the entire package to prove that 1/ I’m committed and 2/ I’ve done my homework.
In short, I need to try and be as professional as a real researcher, without actually being a researcher, and slowly force my way into that particular world through the backdoor without having gone through years of medical school, by doing rather than proposing.
Once I have that first magnet in and the first application around it developed, I should have little difficulties getting the other ones in - because I’ll have become even more credible for having turned that first step into reality.
The real challenge is bootstrapping that process: getting that first magnet in. I’ve been trying for years - not just with magnets - and it’s not happening. But I’m a patient man
