With respect, Buddha
It's not pointless. Being able to focus and amplify the thoughts of yourself or others will open up a level of understanding far better than the
worlds best psychologists and brain surgeons.
Knowing what the brain is thinking in the sub conscious (particularly in an operation procedure) would give the surgeon unparalleled knowledge of the
state and condition of the patient during the procedure.
Psychologists would not have to spend months on end listening to someone inane babble. Instead they plug the patient in and read/record/view the
images and/or responses the brain gives upon a question being asked.
Legal systems would have the ultimate lie detector. No more being smashed about and tortured or hooked up to an archaic device that measures your
heart rate, perspiration and other bodily functions.
What better way for two people deeply in love to completely share each other than to be able to mingle their minds to see each others thoughts and
feelings whenever they please. Would be a great addition to the bed chamber on a cold winters night after a few glasses of your favourite tipple.
Imagine the device being able to communicate with your computer... no more keyboards or mouse. No more typing. Full essays could be written in moments
and could be just as fast to read them. Data compression would be way beyond anything we have now. Microchips would not need to be any smaller. The
brain is the computer.
On the down side, you have all the usual corrupt uses of such a device, both in the criminal world and the military.
But, if such a device existed, then that may possibly be the end of all criminal activity and wars as everyone would be able to find exactly what's
what by setting up brain pattern receivers all over the place. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. No excuses.
