While the title sounds similar to something that would appear in a science-fiction movie, this is not a joke, or fictional. Scientists at HRL laboratories have discovered how to actually upload knowledge to the human brain just like we do with computers.
Soon, it could be just as simple as changing clothes, to change and expand your intelligence. Researchers revealed a simulator which aids in adding information to the human brain, which in turn provides them with the ability to learn new skills in an extremely quick manner. This technology could become a complete game changer for knowledge, as well as mental health.
The company that is responsible for this, HRL laboratories, is based out of California. According to them, they have found a way to amplify the way that the human brain learns on a smaller scale. Basically, they have studied electrical signals, and discovered a way to manipulate them.
The referenced study was published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience actually found that when the brain was stimulated with electrode-embedded head caps, their piloting abilities quickly improved and thus their learning abilities had increased by 33% as well.
In the video which has now been removed from YouTube, the science itself is explained in detail, and it is beyond fascinating what these scientists have accomplished. The method itself has apparently been around for centuries, as far back as the Ancient Egyptians who used electric eels to stimulate and reduce pain.
If scientists can discover a manner in which it becomes a simple task to upload information to the human brain, imagine what else could be possible. Could we see a massive uprising in the genius population in the near future? Probably not, but one could always hope.
