I saw this the beginning of this technology on through the wormhole.
Kind of like the matrix where any information you need is instantly sent into you. You could do most any type of math as fast as your brain can
input the figures, you could know how to fly a helicopter without ever having been in one, you would know the steps required to perform the most
complex brain surgeries. The only thing missing will be the practical applications that only comes with experience.
The Scientist was talking about implanting other people's memories into someone else's brain in order to learn a new skill. So, you can download
medical school, residency and carrying out heart surgery into someones brain who never did any of these things.
This is what technology can do. Shorten time. I remember how hot dogs would have to cook longer to make sure they were cooked. Today we get them pre
cooked and can throw them in the microwave for a few seconds. I was watching a movie where it took days to send people a telegram, today we can send
an instant text to a cell phone.
Imagine going through medical school and carrying out heart surgery in 5 minutes vs. 20 years. You go in, sit down, the information is downloaded and
5 minutes later you're a Doctor.
If a Doctor performing surgery has a specific network of neurons firing and you can implant that pattern in someone else's brain and they have that
memory, that would be amazing. That would mean our brains use the same network of neurons to form the same or similar memories.
It would be amazing to me if our memories are monolithic in the way they're processed. In other words, if I bring in 2 test subjects and I tell the
1st test subject to think about Halle Berry while I'm mapping his brain. I then give a list to the 2nd test subject of 5 actresses and I'm blind to
the order of the list. He then marks on the computer everytime he thinks of an actress on the list. I can then tell by the 1st subjects pattern when
the 2nd subject is thinking of Halle Berry. Could every memory have a different pattern of neural activity but that activity is the same with every
human. So when two people think about Walter White on Breaking Bad, the same neural activity occurs.
They could literally read peoples thoughts. Could they read people minds who are about to kill someone? Would we share the same neural activity when
thinking about murder? How would you know when someone is thinking about murder on their favorite TV show vs someone whose actually thinking about
I guess more research and mapping the brain while begin to answer these questions.
