Not only the President, but everyone should have their brains mapped once the science and tech is avaliable, so that each may know their strengths and
weakness, as well as limitations, and learn to either overcome them by greater consciousness or technological/science enhancements to be an
enlightened individual and medically/mentally fit fellow human.
However, much will be discovered, and that's when moral and ethics guideline will have to come in to play, to ensure all mankind are protected from
abuses if such knowledge falls upon the wrong hands.
Like all science, I doubt if we will be able to FULLY comprehend the workings of the mind, even though we may map the mind one day and find each and
every neural path not only in the mind, but in the entire body as well. Thus we must not accept those findings as absolute truths until we advance
further in COMPREHENSION and honeslty evaluated data, not just mapping.
For example, even today, we discover brain scans can show who has a criminal mind and who doesn't. Should we then ethically use such scans as evidence
in a court of law to convict an arrested felon?
Point is, how conclusive can such evidence be? Mapping will further help, but it will be comprehension and conclusive data that only can be
conclusive. Today, we are still far from it.
Thus, we must be careful with such partial knowledge, and do not misuse it the way we mankind did with nuclear energy and any other tech/science that
had been sadly and detrimentally wrought havoc on humanity in the past century. We cannot afford to behave like kids with new toys, play it without
understanding its use and functions as well as its long term effect upon civilised societies.
