I'm a little scared of this.

Re: Thought Controlled Computing

namaste Arjunah.

I was thinking specifically about this implication:

If the brain can be made to communicate with the computer so the brain waves can be digitally read, then it should be possible to read a person's thoughts. And if this communication could eventually be made duplex, then the person can be brainwashed! If this technology matures into use of tiny wireless devises like those we see in a TV serial such as '24' or 'White Collar', many practising people will have a field day, the Hindu astrologers among them!

The mind (brain in your parlance) can not only be controlled, but nourished, so autistic children could reap the benefits. Scientific studies into the spirituality of a person could become more and more credible, uniform and authentic. Eventually the entire human nervous system can be brought under control, and that, coupled with the researches in DNA for tissue replacement, could rejuvenate a person. And then there will be the inevitable wrong uses of the technology...

Hari Om

Namaste Arjunah, think this scares me as well. Following Saidevo's outline along with his ending..."And then there will be the inevitable wrong uses of the technology..."

Even her type of "zeal' makes me uncomfortable. So much benefit and harm wrought by technology as utilized. Think this path continued is not good. Just another challenge.

Om Shanti

Re: Thought Controlled Computing

Namaste All

It is interesting to observe her casual sweep of the hand through her hair as she announces her newly coined word, there is much pride and ego there. This is the fuel of Western Science. If as much thought went in to the bigger picture and the consequences of science, as goes into the desire for name and acclaim, science would advance so much faster.

I am a little concerned for her health as it would appear that she may be suffering from an eating disorder.


What worries me are the implications from within the field of advertising; considering that a large majority of the Western World are brainwashed to consume and compete. In a world that is already suffocating.
