"Big Bro will start to scan our brains for their own not so good intentions. I think it is a brave new world, but as usualy this kind of technology
shall end up in the wrong hands at the end and it will probably be used for something more scary then just video games.
One more thing; we usually receive this kind of "New" technology with a certain delay, since the big bad corporations have this kind of
revolutionary inventions for themselves and do not want to share them with general public for a long time. Image how long has this been around, before
it was neatly packaged as a "Toy"? For what was it used? Now there is something members of ATS should focus on..."
proposed to read peoples minds at
airports after 911, - What else they might have in store. Dizziness results from video gaming in women; hormonal and biological differences. Men
perceive screens differently, they don't get nauseas playing video games. The middle ear is impacted for women. Women get sick quicker and better
faster than men. More frail and more resilient in frame and immune systems.
Presumably damaging trends show up second in the female population, children being most vulnerable, are first. The cell phone industry is completely
unregulated, running up absurd $700 and more dollars a month phone bills. People compliantly pay them - less demand for legislation than when the
phone contractor's starting stealing customers from the somewhat predictable monopolies from whom they contracted cables.
The point being, with legislation protecting the consumer more flaccid than the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) - No way of tracking damages or
logging a central data base of possible side effects of privatized medicine - (Pharmacology
) - and less from genetically modified foods: It's
likely there will be little way of regulating any ethics marketers will be tempted to ignore.
There are vast armies of psychologists working on ways to sell your children toys they don't need containing plastics that are probably harmful to
them. Foods that aren't good for them, but they've been told taste delicious. One study conducted, revealed the efficiency of the nag factor. So
commercials are now being produced that encourage children to nag their parents. Apparently the longer the nagging goes on the more likely the parent
is to give in. There are far fewer psychologists hired to expose or protect the public against practices that threaten the moral character of a
The potential for abuse by creating a toy that might stimulate a pleasure center
is present. Also, this is the perfect vehicle for insinuating
the technology into a culture. A young audience is a loyal audience. People remember the corporate logos of youth like family. Essentially creating
a compliant market in 20 or 40 years for interactive brain chip surveillance. Nasa already proposed it for 2002. It's part of the rising Total
Private companies currently comprise the predominance of intelligence gathering and research into profiling, aggregating data and predetermining
potential likes, dislikes and behaviors. Private companies can now track every financial transaction an individual makes. The artificial intelligence
tools provided by Searchspace permit banks to extract divergent profiling information about customers such as - Is their behavior abnormal, do they
have appropriate associates, are they a likely terrorist, etc.
Lockheed Martin Corporation's division - Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance has a long history of working with the government on secret
projects. Biometrics, language analysis, non obvious relationship awareness, artificial intelligence (Novel Intelligence from Massive Data) are all in
use right now, not only a an anti-terrorist tool, but as a market determinant. Billions of dollars and dozens of companies are bidding for government
contracts in the new 'war on terror world'.
Some scientists are calling for a public moratorium on the ethics of the researched brain technology. Public awareness can at least increase the
chances of demands for protective legislation against the potentials for abuse. Awareness is up for sale these days:
The potential for abuse is sweeping.
