Elon Musk's masterplan for humanity's future is beyond your wildest sci-fi dreams

Elon Musk is about to become a CEO of another company. Yes, the guy who's already the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX will take on lead duty at a new company called Neuralink, which (ultimately) aims to merge the human brain with a computer. We knew a tiny little bit about Musk's new venture thanks to last month's WSJ report, but now, WaitButWhy's Tim Urban has an in-depth report on what Neuralink is about. And we do mean in-depth. This thing is colossal, starting with a course (I wish I could say "short course" but this part of the text alone has more than 10,000 words) on the evolution of the brain and human invention culminating with the computer.
