Monkey Brain Control: The Future of Robotic Prostheses?
It's always good to hear encouraging words telling us that the future is real. Particularly in concrete, empirical terms. The article in the above Time.com link explains a futuristic breakthrough which implies not only that we may soon be able to develop cyborg capability in humans, but the more important idea that we may soon live in a day and age which is as technologically advanced as cutting edge science fiction.
The world is often adrift with a plague of negativism even by the most careful adherents to doctrinaire ideas. If we capture the spirit of our time and incorporate our yearning for a sci-fi world with our down to earth spiritual side, we may transcend a rough era of man where we are challenged to come up with an infinite world...a world where we would conceptualize and materialize in a dimension so fantastically futuristic, even Jean Paul Sartre would learn to smile.
