A Computer that can read your mind

“A computer has been designed to tell what words a person is thinking of just by looking at images of their brain.

Experts from an American research centre trained the computer to ‘read’ minds by teaching it the unique brain activity patterns for 60 concrete nouns and analysing more than a trillion words.”

Thanks to Metro.co.uk for the story: Computer that can tell what your thinking

A few questions to put this news into perspective:

  • In what ways does this benefit humanity?
  • In what ways is this a potential hazard to humanity?
  • Who will be in control of this technology
  • When will this become the standard “Lie Detector Test”?

Technology such as this developed a little further would enable whoever controlled it to submit the masses of people by literally reading their minds. No longer would the dark recesses of the human psyche be a hiding place for plans and ideas. All would be laid bare before an omniscient ruler, who could then act accordingly. To believe that power hungry people wouldn’t use this on other weaker people is naive and foolish. So I ask again, who will be in control of this technology? The military? The corporation who developed it? Is there a way that We, as a people, can provide access to High Tech so that it benefits everyone?
Clarke’s 3rd law states “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” It appears that we are nearing that stage. A computer that can read human minds is surely close to Artificial General Intelligence. Giving a computer that much insight into the human psyche will bound ahead A.I. research. Soon, if not already, computers will think for themselves. At that point, they will not only be able to link upwirelessly into a ” Hive Mind“, they will also be reading our minds….
The Question of the Day is:

  • Does knowing that a computer that can read your thoughts has been developed make you want to be more honest?

“Floatin By” by The Omega Project

Sorry for the void of entries these last few days.  I have been a very busy bee trying to prepare the way for my new Prince or Princess.  A big job opportunity is on my horizon, so please take a moment and send out a prayer for my success in this matter.

The song of the day is “Floatin By”.  Recorded during the summer of 07 in New Orleans, this song is about the remorse of getting older with lingering goals unaccomplished, and the eventual acceptance that comes with change.

I Dedicate in order to Dream
Universalizing Intuition
I seal the Input of Abundance
With the Crystal tone of Cooperation

Incarceration – By Tilly

1 metal shelf
I lay
2 metal shelves
Lie here
Shelved we wait,
numbered days.
Hoping not to collect dust

The Omega Project on NORMLs Daily Audio Stash

Big Thanks to “Radical” Russ & Cannabis Karri @ NORMLs Daily Audio Stash for featuring The Omega Project as their musical guest on 5/24/08.  No one can say enough good about NORML and this daily podcast is the largest of its kind in the world.  The war on “drugs” is a vicious cycle in which ignorant, uneducated, soldiers are persecuting innocent civilians.  It is based on outdated ideas and science.  Prohibition only worsens the problem.  Pushing “drugs” to the black market, making them expensive and unsafe.  Thanks to NORML for giving The Omega Project support and allowing us an arena to speak our minds and share our music.

NORMLs Daily Audio Stash for 5/24/08
