WoW! This is just… Wow!
I know it is not much now but it has such far reaching implications.
Harvard’s Medical School has created a prototype of what researchers are calling a
“noninvasive brain-to-brain interface” between humans and rats, which allows a person
to control a rat’s tail using only their thoughts .
Using the human brain to influence/control another brain.
That’s pure science fiction right there.
I am excited about this because it means we are learning more and more about this slab of meat between our ears and how it works.
Which it is about time, I mean, its been there for a while now we ought to know more about it.
The relationship we have right now with what we know about the human mind is akin to having a distant relative move in with you and never even learning much more past their name.
Scientists can clone entire beings
Scientists can create meat
Scientists can grow body parts
And now we are well on our way toward neural to neural control.
50 years from now, ok maybe a hundred, entire armies of perfect soldiers controlled by 1 mind.
Or, even better, Have you seen the movie Surrogates?
Where you can buy/create the perfect you and just connect to it via mental wi-fi and have it live your life like an avatar?
Yeah, I’m not against that at all.
