CI is connected to brain via nerve. period. Same for advanced prosthetic leg with electrodes.
Hmm, well, yeah, same for my iPad, the lightbulb overhead, the sun. All "connected to" our brains, all stimulating our nerves. The universe is a sea of energy. Don't hurt yourself though, messing around too much with Vij˝āna and quantum theory to prove a point like you are doing can cause migraines.
I'm joking with you here, but it's not a big deal. Everybody makes mistakes, misstates things at times. We are all human. Including the cyborgs among us, one asleep on my lap at the moment when she should have been practicing Kung Fu, the slacker. I am giving you a hard time about it instead of ignoring it bc i know you are smart and suspect that deep down you realize that you supported smeone else's not so smart contention, but you are so stubborn. I've done it too and have acknowledged it on this forum. We learn from one another. This just happens to be what I'm sure is a rare occasion for you, maybe you thought there was some direct attachment of electrode either to brain or nerve -- one of pfh's 2x4s from his previous analogy nailed in there -- when that isn't the case.
Look, I'm doing some research at the moment that might require me to eat some crow on another topic n this forum, so I'm aware of how nasty that tastes. Just let this go.
