That sounds like psychosis. Were you getting enough sleep?

As for the tech, I have no doubt it is out there. I just want to know how they can intercept neuron synapses remotely....

We need tin foil hats!!!

Go Science! This could be useful as well as intrusive and scary. I know for myself, I usually have at least 2 songs going on in my head at any given time.

I think that not only would we see a lot of mean and negative thoughts coming from people as others have pointed out, but we would be surprised to find out just how insecure we are with social anxiety and poor self esteem.

I think a lot of those thoughts would be quite sad as we discover just how lonely we are as individuals, always wondering if we're liked or are doing the right thing.

It's also funny to think about all the sexual thoughts that would be evident. Some people spend a lot of time with thoughts like "Oh, I wanna bang her/him" or well I'm just not going to delve into that any further, but imagining the constant thoughts of that being made apparent in social situations cracks me up.

This stuff is totally possible. People think about it in terms of needing to know the firing of deep neurons, but you don't. Its really about big computational models acting on mountains of input data. For instance, a cell phone with a brain wave reader, could correlate endless hours of conversation with recorded brain data, to find patterns where repeated brain waves match repeated things said. Also, an eye tracker on your phones front camera,
www.cnet.com...
could watch you read web pages and correlate each word you read with brain states. With enough data, they can get statistically significant correlations, to the extent where they can know thoughts with brain waves alone with a certain degree of statistical confidence. Its not about perfection, just data mining.

I think people in the distant future are going to look back at this period of time as the era of human rights abuses based on technologies that the government and society wasn't able to understand at the time.

No I argue too much and they are MINE to resolve.
THEN the art guy shows up then the what will you do about stuff rolls in...who really needs to hear ALL that?

Dreaming would be ODD too.

CHEAP TRICK LYRICS
"Dream Police"
www.azlyrics.com...


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

one of his short stories turned movie Minority Report instead of a Thought Machine

Nothing to be paranoid about. You just start quoting Andrew 'Dice' Clay in your head. Or something that will scare the crap about them. It helps if you like writing fiction.

No, technology to convert music you hear in your head into external sound has been commonplace for decades.

That sir, is the beginning of a horror movie script if I've ever heard one.

Imagine using this technology during election time. We could get sub-text mind reading of our candidates lying to us.

It could speed up the judicial process much like the lie detector test.

creepy stuff.

I'm not saying I'm totally against it for me personally. If they want to monitor my thoughts, they wont compare to the sick depravity tptb engage in. I have no shame.

As for algorithms, they already have "Minority Report." Phillip K Dick is some kind of genius.

I'm willing to compromise. In exchange I would like to be able to tune into music or pod casts at will. Selectively. Make it happen freaks.

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.

They might have been more right than we think they were.

Read this article and immediately thought of this place. You want something to be paranoid about, this is it.

www.engadget.com...



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.


Give it 2 years and an iphone app will be out. That's scary.

I'm drunk but I recently had an attack, either I went crazy for a short perioperiod of time, or I was being experimented on with this tech which is more advanced than you believe. I heard voices it was intelligent, it could have been my own mind that a how smart it was but there were too many anomalies to explain this quickly. All I can say is that if they are touching the tip of the iceberg now, someone has already done it.

While this is a big development with oodles of potential just waiting to be abused, they can't actually read an individuals thoughts unless the individual complies with the tailoring of the algorithm

At least, that's how I imagine it'll go. Just like with cell phones.
