I couldn't resist the fire hydrant comment. Got a great chuckle. Thanks for that.
I was talking with a friend and although he too was resistant in wanting to engage in the "what ifs", i pressed him further.
I offered the idea of: what if we were of course born with these abilities? But instead of 2 eyes you had multiple receptors. He suggested a way to
filter in and out more naturally so we settled on that with blinking as the trigger.
Besides, what's wrong with a little drink from a fire hydrant now and then?
The NSA is presently buried under a mountain of useless data as a result of its Spy Gate program. It's useless because it's literally impossible for
anyone to filter out what's important from the piles and piles and piles of crap that their bots grab and store. If that system was a human brain,
it'd be completely frozen in place and incapable of further processing. The filters that they devised were still no match for the constant barrage of
data that the system inhaled from second to second to second. In short, they blew it and they blew it magnificently.
Filters allow for "weighting" of data sets, and without that weighting as part of any data process system, then a cough becomes as important as a gun
shot. A smile becomes the same as a weapon being raised against you. Without any filters at all, your brain/mind survival system is completely
If you want a really accurate example of a person whose brain is only slightly more "open" to perceiving everything at the same level, check out a
profoundly autistic person. That's what it's like for a person who's only slightly more receptive than you are. All incoming stimuli - unfiltered - is
like pain for these poor folks. The brain just isn't equipped for wide open access, and short of inventing a new brain, that's what we're stuck
Hell, even a computer needs an operating system (a structure of filtering protocols) in order for it to be functional.
