Won’t humans learn from their mistakes? Despite Ian Malcolm’s many warnings in Jurassic Park, Max Hodak (co-founder of Neuralink) hopes that humanity will be able to create dinosaur parks within 15 years.
Basically, Jurassic Park’s message is: Nature always finds a way and takes back its rights no matter what human beings cannot control. Even if Jurassic Park is a dream on paper, there are dozens of reasons why opening such an amusement park would be a bad idea.
However, Neuralink co-founder Max Hodak estimates that within 15 years, humanity will be able to recreate dinosaurs and open up a park like the one Steven Spielberg imagined. On Twitter, the businessman detailed his thoughts: “Maybe we could open up a Jurassic Park if we wanted to. It could take 15 years of breeding and engineering to get some new super weird species.”
“Why stop there?”
As a reminder, by creating Neuralink, Elon Musk and his friend are trying to create the first brain-machine interface (ICM) to help people with disabilities, for example. We understand that they strive at any cost to advance science and humanity. Moreover, in a second tweet, Max Hoodack thinks a way should be found to generate new biodiversity. Because, as he put it: “Why stop there?”
In any case, Neuralink has already managed to get relatively conclusive results by implanting their brains on pigs and Monkeys recently. But from there to creating Triceratops, we’re still far from it. And honestly, does the world really need to see dinosaurs again?
