In a recent study, researchers implanted an electrode chip — the size of a baby aspirin — into the brains of two patients. Both had suffered strokes in their brainstems that left them in a “locked-in” state. While their brains worked normally, connections to the muscles below had been severed, leaving them quadriplegic and unable to speak.
Now, a chip placed onto a sliver of brain that controls movement — the motor cortex — is able to listen to signals generated by the patients’ brain cells as they thought about moving their own arms. A computer reads the signal, interprets it and sends movement messages to the robotic arm. Voila!

So why is this so important? In Chapter Five of Saved By The Light, I described the contents of all of the Boxes of Knowledge that I viewed in my first near death experience. Specifically, Box 12 provided information regarding the manufacture of computer chips to be implanted in people. I explore the significance of this topic in depth in my self published articles called That Ain’t Nothin‘!
