Known as “Building 8,” the research and development venture involves manipulating the human central nervous system in order to build so-called “augmented reality” technologies that blend real life with fantasy. And heading it up is none other than former DARPA executive Regina Dugan, who will spearhead the program’s success – “in the style of DARPA,” of course.
In case you aren’t aware of what DARPA actually is, it’s a program of the United States military-industrial complex. Known in full spell-out form as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, DARPA is basically the U.S. military’s “high-tech” division, some of its other projects including a $100 million “genetic extinction technology” that involves weaponizing genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) as part of a global eugenics program.
Building upon these and other technologies she learned about while still at DARPA, Dugan will apparently work towards exploiting the human brain in order to input its functionalities into AI systems that, should Zuckerberg one day get his wish, might be used to merge the Facebook application directly into people’s minds.
“You’re going to just be able to capture a thought, what you’re thinking or feeling in kind of its ideal and perfect form in your head, and be able to share that with the world,” Zuckerberg stated about the endgame of the project.
Facebook to become permanently embedded into users’ brains
By merging human thought into Facebook’s augmented reality (AR) technology, users will never have to log in or log out of Facebook, as it will always be “on” inside their heads. Facebook applications will also presumably one day have the ability to deliver whatever users want to see directly into their “newsfeeds,” which of course will be broadcast 24-7 directly into their eyes and even into their thoughts.
“In the future, you’ll be able to snap your fingers and pull out a photo and make it as big as you want, and with your AR glasses you’ll be able to show it to people and they’ll be able to see it,” Zuckerberg has also stated about the technology.
“As a matter of fact, when we get to this world, a lot of things that we think about as physical objects today, like a TV for displaying an image, will actually just be $1 apps in an AR app store. So it’s going to take a long time to make this work. But this is the vision, and this is what we’re trying to get to over the next 10 years.”
Such technology will spell the official end of privacy for Facebook users – not that they really have any privacy as it currently stands. But let’s face it: Facebook users who continue to use the service once these future “improvements” are fully implemented will likely have already completely lost their ability to have an original thought.
Facebook itself will essentially become the new “reality” for all Facebook users, with Mark Zuckerberg as their permanent mind-controller. Real life will no longer exist for such people, as Facebook will have the power to completely seize control of their brains, as well as everything that goes on inside them.
Just take a look at what “Q” posted about Facebook and building 8 in China.
