The dream police, they live inside of my head
The dream police, they come to me in my bed
The dream police, they're coming to arrest me, oh, no
You know that talk is cheap And those rumors ain't nice
And when I fall asleep I don't think I'll survive the night, the night
'Cause they're waiting for me They're looking for me
Every single night They're driving me insane Those men inside my brain

I've read that as recently as 3,000 years ago people did not recognize their own internal monologue as themselves -- but rather the voice of "God". In these times, no one read aloud. People would sort of just wander around and when in times of crisis hear "RUN!" or something in their heads. They would then praise God for saving them, not realizing the entire time it was their own internal voice.

Read this article and immediately thought of this place. You want something to be paranoid about, this is it.
Text Building the thought decoder began by developing an algorithm tailored to each individual subject. The participant was asked to read a passage, for instance John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, aloud to get a base reading. Then they were asked to read it to themselves. And finally, to just sit and do nothing. That allowed the team to isolate which neurons were firing when vocalizing the text. Then a visual representation of the sound waves is created and those sounds are matched with particular brain patterns. Then while the participants read silently to themselves the decoder is able to reconstruct the words based purely on what neurons are firing.
