Exactly. It's able to recognise a strong emotional state in the mind, but it can't see what is inside it. It's like a metal detector for emotions, in
a way. an emotion detector.
It can recognise when you experience the feelings of intense love, dreaming about someone you love, but it can't see her face, or the smell of the air
the first time you saw her, or any of the things that we dream about.
It seems they are able to detect complex combinations of these feelings by the regions of the brains that light up, and when we associate some things
in a sort of mass consciousness where certain things relate to certain negative fears or positive desires, a pattern is likely to form. Like reciting
the alphabet, I would imagine that would spark up specific regions of the brain if they checked for it.
It's all a little bit clockwork orangy though, if they can detect when someone is feeling desire to murder, off goes their thinking cap and rings the
That is more scary to me, really, as a potential problem than being able to record someone's dreams or memories.
I agree and think this is the most important observation in your thread. I also think just being able to see which areas of the brain are activated
and trying to apply some algorythm to that as though this gives an accurate set of data for a computer to then interpret a picture is not exactly
accuracy in any scientific way, anyway.
Plus, where this is going is exactly what you allude to above. Does anyone really want their thoughts visualized by everyone or anyone? And really,
I am not convinced about the machine interpreting with the method described, and certainly 60% accuracy isn't all that great, especially when you
think how this may be applied.
A line out of your brain, accurate or not in what a computer interprets is going on while trying to interface with it computationally to produce what
it interprets with 0s and 1s as a data set, is also a line into your brain.....
If it can read your brain, it can give your brain what it wants it to read as.
I am very surprised that the more I read about things like this, that so few are concerned about the plundering of their minds possible, the
implications of this, the lies possible out of it, and that no one feels their mind should be their own last private place, for the reasons above just
as TSA putting their hands all over you before you get on a plane, and doing everything they can to assess your motives just to travel.....Not the
best analogy but it's late, and I am sleepy. Sorry. I'll come up with a better analogy at some point.
