That is a very scary progression - and I really wonder whether humans should attempt to develop this kind of technology in our current evolutionary
The mind-control and mind-image-harvesting utilization of this technology will be absolutely frightening if wielded by the wrong people.
The article goes on to state:
However, researchers point out that the technology is decades from allowing users to read others' thoughts and intentions, as portrayed in such
sci-fi classics as "Brainstorm," in which scientists recorded a person's sensations so that others could experience them.
Decades away? Only decades? Why - that means that within my lifetime my sensations could be recorded to be experienced by others - truly
Reminds me in a sense of a sci-fi short story that I read some years ago. Cannot remember the author or the exact title, and a quick Google doesn't
provide me with info. I think the title was "Dreamers" and basically dealt with a future scenario in which people's thoughts and dreams could be
recorded, and replayed by others from within their minds for entertainment value. Some people were more gifted in the ability to "dream" - they were
called "dreamers" and were employed for their ability to visualize colourful and vivid day-dreams which also involved the full array of senses, for
others to experience.
Even so - it still remains a scary prospect. Will we then yearn back to today as the time when "our brains and thoughts were still our own"? S+F
