“Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull.” -George Orwell, 1984

The quoted sentence conveys the idea that the mind is a kind of last refuge of personal freedom and self-determination. While the body can easily be subject to domination and control by others, our mind, along with our thoughts, beliefs and convictions, are to a large extent beyond external constraint. Yet, with advances in neural engineering, brain imaging and pervasive neurotechnology, the mind might no longer be such an unassailable fortress. Today, pervasive neurotechnology applications include brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) for device control or real-time neuromonitoring, neurosensor-based vehicle operator systems, cognitive training tools, electrical and magnetic brain stimulation, wearables for mental wellbeing, and virtual reality systems. Mental decoders are capable of decoding mental states and translating them into observable outputs such as text, verbal signals or graphic images. For example, Herff and Mirkovic have independently demonstrated the effectiveness of a decoder capable of reconstructing speech from brain waves. While these advances can be greatly beneficial for individuals and society, they can also be misused and create unprecedented threats to the freedom of the mind and to the individuals’ capacity to freely govern their behavior.

Rapid advancements in human neuroscience and neurotechnology open unprecedented possibilities for accessing, collecting, sharing and manipulating information from the human brain. Such applications raise important challenges to human rights principles that need to be addressed to prevent misuse or unintended negative consequences. This proposal assesses the implications of emerging neurotechnology applications in the context of the human rights framework and suggests that existing human rights are not sufficient to respond to these emerging issues. After analysing the relationship between neuroscience and human rights, we identify four new neuro-specific human rights that will be vital in the effort of protecting the human brain: the right to cognitive liberty, the right to mental privacy, the right to mental integrity, and the right to psychological continuity.

The volume and variety of neurotechnology applications is rapidly increasing inside and outside the clinical and research setting. The ubiquitous distribution of cheaper, scalable and easy-to-use neuroapplications has the potential of opening unprecedented opportunities at the brain-machine interface level and making neurotechnology intricately embedded in our everyday life. While this technological trend may generate immense advantage for society in many ways, its implications for ethics and the law remain largely unexplored. We argue that in the light of the disruptive change that neurotechnology is determining in the digital ecosystem, the normative terrain should be urgently prepared to prevent misuse or unintended negative consequences. In addition, given the fundamental character of the neurocognitive dimension, we argue that such normative response should not exclusively focus on tort law but also on foundational issues at the level of human right law.

This proposal of neuro-specific human rights in response to emerging advancements in neurotechnology is consistent with and a logical continuation of the proposal of developing genetic-specific human rights in response to advancements in genetics and genomics as set out by the Universal Declaration on the Human Genome and Human Rights, and the International Declaration on Human Genetic Data.

The freedom of thought, freedom from slavery, torture and inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment are regarded by international human rights law as not subject to any exceptions and, therefore, as absolute rights. Absolute rights cannot be limited for any reason. No circumstance justifies a qualification or limitation of absolute rights. Absolute rights cannot be suspended or restricted, even during a declared state of emergency. The right to cognitive liberty, the right to mental privacy, the right to mental integrity, and the right to psychological continuity should also be enacted into law as absolute rights.

  2. 8:14 … "I know this sounds like science fiction" …. No, it actually sounds like very serious crimes, assault, theft, torture, rape, etc. How the hell are these people still alive, free and continuing their sick crimes? That is the question I want an answer to. These people are not God and have no rights or authority over another humans life, the earth, nature, etc. WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO PRISON?

  3. I got to 10:00 and couldn't listen to this criminal anymore and his insanity is not tolerable. I know exactly what they're doing and I know they belong in prison, not in front of a crowd talking about how they think their God, and will control everyone and their bodies. They're mental illness is dangerous. THIS IS NOT TOLERABLE!

  4. Imagine the interrogation techniques. And also a database of thought patterns leaking and someone arbitrarily taking any info they need, through which ever communication method this would use.

  5. Terrifying INDEED….Modern eugenics….They always start with something nice like the monkey will walk….but hide the real intent like a cockroach at night.

  6. For all you TI's out there Two documents that broadly outline the stuff gangstalkers do and how (the psychological abusive aspect)

    you can find these on the internet

    The-Ellipsis-Manual-analysis-and -engineering-of-human-behavior by chase hughes

    and

    Biderman's Chart of Coercion

    Just a tip for people new to this experience goodluck.

  7. You have to clean the body in order to defend yourself. Probiotic supplements, burdock root, Iodine, powerade mixed with distilled water half of both, and a clean environment with something that kills bacteria and fungus.

  8. Thank you so much for the passionate delivery of this subject – AI is so interesting – and its great that your company interacts globally – one scripture comes to mind – 'Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens…' in the end times there will be a proflieration of knowledge which will lead to eternal salvation, (probably not the application you were expecting but very apt).

  9. I sure hope most people will not get one. I dont know about anybody else, but if they ever try to make those mandatory, i will fight to the death, gladiator style, to prevent them from putting one in me. They also better not design society in a way where you have to have one or you cant do anything. Not for health reasons,tracking reasons, crime prevention reasons, NO reason is good enough.

  10. Dude, we dont need to create "reality/-ties". We already are living in one. Why are people who are for this(medical/mental health reasons, ok) not thinking about the consequences. How many sci-fi movies do they gotta make before you realize where this is goin?

  11. We are not and never want to be a "hive mind". Hive minds are usually stupid. Everyone doesnt need to think or act the same. People in groups act more primitive. Individualism is the way to go. Not totally complete individualism, only being collective say in case of reacting to an alien attack for example.

  12. Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons
    influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron
