What is telepathy?
I don’t want to startle anyone, but telepathy, or the act of transferring ideas into another person’s mind, is now a reality.
People may now speak telepathically with one another, monkeys can solve issues as a connected hive mind, and people can even control a rat telepathically.
Messages are sent by the brain as electrical impulses via nerves, but we can’t merely join everyone’s heads via a massive network of nerves; even if we could, it would be impracticable.
However, we can use technological instruments to read the electrical activity of brain cells.
Undoubtedly, computer-assisted telepathy, which uses small modem-like devices implanted in our brains, is poised to become a large industry.
The signal is then sent, much like the internet, and converted back into brain cell activity at the other end.
Interestingly, when we speak of telepathy, consider a future where you don’t have to type, touch, or swipe on your smartphone screen; instead, your gadget responds to your thoughts.
At best, you don’t even need a cellphone; you simply choose a brain-to-brain communication service.
This is going to put a massive drop in the magician card-trick business.
Using Noninvasive Telepathy
Humans control cockroaches or rats using surgically implanted brain interfaces by using noninvasive methods similar to those used in the BrainNet research.
Researchers Point Of View
In Scientific American, research pharmacologist Robert Martone, who has spent 20 years heading neuroscience research and technology teams, discussed the dystopian possibilities of what may go wrong.
It may seem strange that a legitimate business could be built out of a technology that appears to increase human capacities by “hooking into” the brain itself – Dr. Jason Perge, one of the many brilliant researchers at BrainGate.
Long story short, this technology will not be confined to clinical trials indefinitely.
