We observe that the main technologies have always been developed by hierarchical structures that want to strengthen their own position. There is a lot of examples of negative scenarious, for example the mind control towers from the novel "Inhabited Island" by the Strugatsky brothers. How can we avoid such a scenario for the application of neurotechnology? Technologies that transform human identity have a significant influence on possible future scenarios and may alter them from the most positive to the most negative. We can not stop the continued evolution of technology new technologies will always appead. Instead, we see this laboratory as a space to develop a different approach — one of personal responsibility — to the use of technology. This approach asks us to be conscious of the image of our desired future and use technology toward that end.
