Mind reading, both voluntary or against your knowledge or consent, is a topic that by the very nature of the subject, raises many more questions than answers afforded. Here are some of the urgent points of discussion that need to see the light of day, the questions to be asked … and answered …
The thought of someone being able to read your mind by pointing a remote beam at your head, or by intercepting an omnidirectional transmission of your origin, is a very scary concept and one most of us would immediately push back against! In this day of tyranny when we are fully aware of the fact that our own government eavesdrops on our (supposed) private communications, including our phone calls, tweets, text messages, emails, cable box selections, and internet (social media) conversations, we are well aware that if the technology was available to them, it would be utilized without reservations or limits … IS IT?
Now we are told that rudimentary mind reading is not only possible, but is a reality being practiced by as many as 90 companies globally. This process is in its infancy, cumbersome and by no means an exact science yet. BUT if we are being informed of this via the very complicit mainstream media, just how long has our government, via black ops and highly classified research programs within DARPA been working on, or with this? Is this a conspiracy theory, or by past revelations a possibility that cannot be discounted or ignored? And if so how advanced is this technology in actuality?
I personally spent three decades working for the Military Industrial Complex and by default the DOD, involved in high tech projects. I am aware that the military and intel agencies have access to technologies years if not decades in advance of the technology we use as a society today … and think is the epitome of technology (NOT). Once technology is advanced enough to replace their secret toys, or their toys are compromised by other technologies … the replaced tech now becomes available to you and I through the big tech companies that are locked at the hip of this government. This is not a guess … it is an observed fact.
How long will it be before this process finds its way into our legal system? Do we in fact have any rights to deny a brain scan to determine our thoughts via our Constitution, Bill of Rights, or our existing legal system? Consider that your blood, DNA and sperm can already be used against you in a court of law. Will your thoughts be next? And to answer my first question in this paragraph … NO, there is no Constitutional or legal protection for your thoughts as we speak … will there ever be?
Privacy is defined as – The ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves or information about themselves and thereby reveal themselves selectively. The boundaries and content of what is considered private differ among cultures and individuals, but share basic common themes. Privacy is sometimes related to anonymity, the wish to remain unnoticed or unidentified in the public realm.
With these new technologies under development, and the very real prospects that our government must by default already posses much more advanced mechanisms (DARPA) for this type of intrusion into our privacy, will your ability or desire to be unique in your thoughts be in danger of evaporating? Will what makes you stand apart as an individual also put you in danger of being accused of being a danger to society, and who defines “a danger”?
This is a very slippery slope we are imparting on and one that must be considered in manners of the extreme. Is society ready for this, or will it foment another major push-back against those who would rule and control us. These are all unanswered questions, but the answers need to be found and well defined before this mechanism becomes common practice in both the commercial and legal aspect. The question presented to us all is “Will they be?”
So in summation … A thought is an expression of self, a manifestation of conscience, and of existence as put in the famous sentence of Decartes: “I think therefore I exist” Our understanding of fundamental civil rights are far behind technology. As mind reading science advances at an alarming rate our most fundamental right of developing and maintaining a thought is under siege. Please watch this short film below about this, life imitating science fiction, research that if unchecked is guaranteed to destroy our fundamental notion of being human. No one has the right to pry into the mind of another human being and read his private thoughts.
Still think we aren’t living in the Matrix? Sadly, this isn’t science fiction but science fact and it’s coming in the next decade as part of the Internet of Things smart surveillance grid they want everyone swept up into. Technology is about to openly bring us an era where government authorities can read people’s minds without their permission and use it against them including in court, pre-crime, thought police/thought crime and labeling people including children as potential criminals based on their brainwaves… and all of this was discussed casually at Davos this year like it’ll be a rip roaring roller coaster of rose-colored awesome instead of the Orwellian Nightmare 2.0 we all know is coming under the technocrats in charge. Hey, why watch a horror movie when you can watch a panel at Davos instead?
Philip K. Dick and George Orwell are spinning in their graves…
