I read the article I will link at the end of this post, and I begin to realize that this probably deserves its own thread. Topic tags I have listed for this thread include:

 

1. Telepathy.

2. Mind interface weaponry.

3. Mind interface prosthetics.

4. Human to animal communications.

 

So, the intent is to bring these four areas of mind/brain development into one thread.  In that way, we can began to see similarities in technological themes and developments.  Once that base line of information has been established, we can begin to speculate about the future of technological development in this field.  Of course, if you already have some ideas concerning this topic, feel free to express tweet like opinions, or perhaps even essay long type observations.

 

At any rate, here is the opening article as promised:

 

Are Human Beings on the Verge of Establishing Telepathic Communications?

 

http://mysteriousuni...ping-telepathy/

 

Introduction:

 

 

(Mysterious Universe) Telepathy, or the various related abilities to “read” other’s minds or communicate using means by means other than the usual face holes, is at the heart of a significant amount of both science fiction and paranormal research. Aside from allowing one to get extremely creeped out in public, the power to read or hear others’ thoughts would be of critical strategic advantage in politics, law enforcement, and the military. For that reason, the CIA and other clandestine organizations have experimented with various forms of telepathy over the years – to mostly no result. However, recent leaps in brain scanning technology, artificial intelligence, and human-computer interfacing have put humankind on the verge of developing real telepathy like never before. Will privacy become a thing of the past?

 

For years, many of the biggest names in technology including the no-longer-doubtfully-evil Facebook have been researching methods of technological telepathy. Some of the more terrifying iterations involve powerful artificial intelligence networks which can read your brain activity and recreate any visual information your brain is processing. To make things even more dystopian, MIT researchers have recently unveiled technology which can ‘hear’ and decode individuals’ inner speech. What will this spell for the future of interrogation, court proceedings? or law enforcement?

 

The device, called AlterEgo, consists of a goofy, obtrusive headset which detects and interprets minute electrical signals sent from the brain to the facial and vocal muscles. These signals are sent even when we are only ‘speaking’ inside our heads, meaning this system can essentially read people’s minds in real time. Through interpreting these signals, the device can essentially “hear” users’ inner thoughts. The device’s creators claim that they envision this system used to make technology use less obtrusive:

 

If I want to look something up that’s relevant to a conversation I’m having, I have to find my phone and type in the passcode and open an app and type in some search keyword, and the whole thing requires that I completely shift attention from my environment and the people that I’m with to the phone itself.

Before I raise concerns, here's a handful.

 

  • I've been playing around this concept long enough to have equipped an entire conceptual species with it.
  • Telepathy is an inborn ability of their species, embedded in the ever-so fluid brains of its constituent individuals as a semi-artificially developed lobe that handles all quantum internet traffic, establishing and destroying non-locality between similar lobe structures by functioning as a router. 
  • All those networked brains will essentially birth a cloud computing platform. With just about enough instances of those brains, quantum blockchain superorganisms are bound to wake up and assume the role of gods.
  • whatever kind of gods those would be, depends on whatever kinds of people there are. (might also be the other way around though).

 

Now, I think the article focused on the application of telepathy as a mind-controlled democracy - obviously political. It is as if having a literal technological window to the soul means the authorities can file a search warrant and enter through and seek or plant evidence there to protect every others' souls. I mean yes, technically they can but, that's not the only application .

I'd like to talk more about mind interfaces, which is exactly what telepathy is. it would be too revolutionary that it might just not happen at all but let's say that we already have devices that can:

  1. read and translate rational thoughts into input signals
  2. process rational thoughts across hidden layers of neural networks separate from or embedded on our own neurons.
  3. write and broadcast irrational thoughts as an output

Firstly, just look at autocomplete feature of smartphones. With just about enough sample size, those telepathic devices can not only read and write. Sooner or later, they will learn (and believe me someone may already be teaching them) how to predict what they will read based on our inputs and what they will write based on what they will read and after that, well, the human brain is a prediction engine, but that's another thing. In the meantime, I just gotta say.

 

  1. Businesses wouldn't be as challenging. depending on the level of integration, producers may already know what their customers will want and be there to provide it right on time.
  2. Frauds will become geniuses to have figured out a way to broadcast inconsistent information and get away with it regardless of these next-generation prediction engines.
  3. Memories will be files that can be shared, viewed, edited, deleted or otherwise.
  4. Memory conversion from one human-compatible format to another will be possible.
  5. Reality will be fragmented into orthodox, simulated, augmented, and various others in between.
  6. Psychokinetic prostheses would replace most buttons, switches, levers, knobs, sliders, touch-pads, etc.
  7. New programming languages for interfacing neurotransmitters and transistors will evolve as well.
  8. MindHacking will be more widespread than authorities will initially thought.
  9. Terms and Conditions will have extra sections that we might actually want to read because dude, it's our minds that'll be at stake.
  10. New Government Rules and Regulations regarding mind-mind communication
  11. Full Consciousness read-write because why not.
  12. Daydreaming will replace Web-surfing. Why use screens and papers when you can just buy a memory file from someone who has seen the news.

This is why telepathy is a scary thought. It's not just a means of mind-to-mind communication. it can also be mind-to-machine communication. we know pretty much what machines can communicate with, especially when the internet of things has matured. It's quite simple and safe to say that the same tech to give us telepathy will also give us telekinesis and when you have both, it's just the scale and degree of manipulation that will give us the rest of the superpowers even jean grey and prof. X will envy.

 

St. Elon Musk's neural lace is an inspired solution, along with what he said about merging our brains with our own AI's.

To me, both thinking structures are inherently flawed but also exclusively compatible because:

  • Brains are flexible but neither efficient nor expandable. and
  • AI's are mostly rigid, making them efficient and modular

We should be the self-improving part of our AI's.

As you can see, I'm a huge nerd who'd rather write about how we can become a Type V civilization instead of study for my final exams (gotta fix that).

But to put an end to this topic, might I say that the one and only greatest future achievement of humankind is when it finally becomes posthumankind.
