According to this, some scientists have wired up some snails with electrodes and made them into slimy little batteries - kind of like how humans were hooked up in the movie The Matrix. The snails allegedly seem otherwise happy, they crawl around and eat and drink. Of course they are quite simple creatures, too. I'm sure they can't tell us if it makes their brain hurt.
One more step towards the "Singularity"... Yecch.
I had this idea about this "Singularity" the other day. I was listening to Alex Jones (who else!) and he was going on about how he had found out the super-elites really wanted to kill off 99.9% of humanity (rather than 95% as recommended on the Georgia Guidestones). and they then wanted to merge with the Borg, and live as hybrid man-machines, probably extending their consciousnesses into "immortality" by uploading them into new bodies as their old ones wore out.
So my idea was this: What if they actually tried this, and did it wrong - and the machines got smart and took over their brains? Their personalities would be wiped out. Then the machines would only have use for their bodies as batteries or vehicles. They'd essentially become the Robo Zombie Apocalypse. But are humans the most efficient batteries? Perhaps the Borg would prefer cats, or cockroaches, or sharks, or giant spider robots? And once they killed off the elites' minds, they wouldn't have to work for them anymore.
The other thought is, would the Borg-consciousness then even want mechanical parts at all at that point? Maybe all they'd need is one chip implant, or just a swarm of replicating nano-machines in everyone's brain.
What if Morgellon's Disease was an escaped failed Borg experiment that ran somewhat along these lines?
What if the elites turning into the Borg went through some kind of slow, scary process where they started by going mad, or some of them had turned into Borg zombies and some not?
What if the Borg were ALREADY in some people's brains? That would explain a lot. hehe
Back to snails: On a totally different (and cute) note, there's also these people who are gluing RFID chips to snails, and using them to deliver "snail mail" emails in schools as an educational project. http://www.realsnailmail.net/
