Brain Implants: Doing the Unimaginable

Would you like to have a memory chip implanted in your brain giving you perfect recall? Or would connect your brain directly to the Internet? Scientists say brain implants may be as common as laser eye surgery in 10 years. Neuroprosthetics will become part of us, enhancing performance, changing how we perceive the world, and opening up possibilities heretofore unimaginable.

I couldn’t help but see the spiritual analogy. You and I already have an implant—the “mind of Christ” (1 Cor. 2:15). And although we ‘have’ His mind, we are responsible for employing it: “let the mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus” (Phil 2:15). That is, think as Jesus does, with “your mind on things above, where He is” (Col. 3:2). Just like those neuroprosthetics, the mind of Christ becomes part of us, changing the way we perceive the world, doing things heretofore thought unimaginable (1 Cor. 2:9).
