Do you have any opionion on the idea, other than a passing whim to vaguely question the possibility?
Anything that can be thought of can be possible in some capacity - even if the existence is only possible in a fictional writing or movie about the
I do not see why there couldn't exist a potential for such a parasite to exist. Evolution could bring about such a life form.
Maybe nature will find that human beings are no longer needed, or they have become a detriment to Earth and it's future. Nature may choose to engineer
a parasite that is capable of controlling individual minds, as a way to gain more control over the entire species.
This type of parasite may also be a possibility in a less than natural form.
I am sure the ruling elite of Earth would find much use in a mind controlling parasite.
Until recent times, entertaining the idea of engineered parasites, designed specifically to control the population, was a waste of time.
This may no longer be the case, as with the introduction of nano technology and the ever increasing power and possibility offered by the rapid
advancement of this incredible technological breakthrough we are brought ever closer to producing artificial parasites designed to do many things,
such as what you have questioned - if it is not already beeing done.
So maybe your question offers and answer that is inevitable, considering the 2 driving motivators that could be responsible for producing such a
parasite - either natural evolution or scientific, technological advancement may be responsible for the parasite, if ever it does become a tangible
part of our reality.
