    Humans being valuable! You are not helping in medical field as noble with Neuralink there’s a lot others ways to invest and make money.Reputation is important I thing so!
    As example Implanting a heart in human being from one to one studies shows how it has huge impact for the one who care it even emotionally, and do not survive a while! So do not even though about the because is way complicated than you thought and humans being are not rats for failure experiences . You are each upgrading the features of your Businesses as an approve the taste of perfection is way far. No anyone of you want to make dirty money talking about Neurology!! FDA you stop you to as well !
