I mean, you have to admit that a brain microchip is a pretty outlandish explanation. Possible, but extremely unlikely. If you’re willing to accept that possibility, how could other unlikely explanations be less valid?
It could be any number of things unsupported by evidence:
Tiny covert agents taking residence in your body via shrinking technology
Ancestral DNA being activated and telling you how to live your life
Whispers leaking from another dimension beyond our perception
Or even an unaddressed mental health issue you’re not aware of
In a universe full of impossible things where all of these explanations are apparently equally likely, why microchips? There’s even more evidence about microchips not being able to do what you describe than any other explanation. Why latch on to that?
As a rule, the folks here (myself adamantly included) are the type who would line up and pay for that, if it existed. Many of us follow these technologies closely and with great hope. That said, it is not even close to working, as @Eriequiet has already pointed out.
For what it’s worth, that exact use case in that meme is literally one of my greatest wishes from a technology growth standpoint. I’d absolutely LOVE an implant that allowed me to play music or transmit noises without headphones. In addition to the fun of not needing headphones, I have very bad tinnitus and deteriorating hearing and such an implant would be a big quality of life improvement for me. I say all that to hopefully maybe lend a little credence to my above statement that we here are the folks who do follow these technologies closely, and actively hope this stuff was true. We aren’t getting any pleasure out of saying this technology doesn’t exist.
So this may be the wrong thread for this, but your comment has made me think about more unintended use-cases for neuralink and correlated products. There are plenty of young people who are interested in biohacking (I’m not even technically in college yet). If neuralink becomes as ubiquitous as it might among aspiring biohackers, school testing and other “secure” places will need a massive policy update. My high school wasn’t even prepared when I had a smartwatch with me when I took AP tests a few years ago.
Not necessarily, Sleep Paralysis could also account for a lot of the listed symptoms, including hearing voices. Either way that is something for medical professionals to determine, and the first step to getting that help is to ask for it.
I am not saying that either of us is right (or wrong) just that neither of us is in a position to accurately diagnose and then help her. This is why it is most important for them to seek the help that they need from someone who can actually provide it.
Hey James, that sounds really scary and I’m sorry you’re dealing with it! I’m willing to bet there are lots of physical illnesses could cause these sorts of symptoms so I’m glad you’re talking with a doctor. I know you have your own theories but it’s important to get checked out by a professional because it’s sometimes impossibly difficult to figure out what’s going on inside your body without help. If your doctor can’t help you it might be worth talking to a psychiatrist. Brains are extremely weird organs, and they’re capable of misbehaving in some very wacky ways. I’m not trying to say you’re crazy. I’m just saying that your own physical brain might be doing weird stuff to your mind, if that makes sense? That’s really all “delusions” are. One part of your brain fighting another. I say all this as someone who also suffers from a misbehaving brain, though it tends to mess with my moods and emotions more than my perception of the outside world. Psychiatrists can be an amazing help though.
currently no implants than can do anything like this,
Even the touted “neuralink” is only capable of recognizing rough movement after presumably lengthy calibration at the moment
And before you say “but so and so keeps it secret”
We are the idiots who implant things in our bodies in as soon as it’s viable, long before government is usually aware of it
Currently microchips can’t do send anything to your brain,
Are easy to see on X-ray
Easy to remove
Easy to locate yourself because they hurt going in and are easily felt thru the skin
Are completely inert when not directly next to a badge reader since they have no batteries
All we can do is tell you what microchips can and can’t do, we can’t make you believe us
A friend had similar symptoms to yours. She went through being titled crazy and all, until eventually she got a blood test done. She needed blood thinner.
…just a tip, not a medical…
Good luck, and all the best!
