Mind ReadingThis article continues the subject of Achieving Immortality – Becoming a Hologram.

Our thoughts may not be safe much longer. Research is already under way to read our thoughts. Not only our thoughts, but our INNER THOUGHTS. The prospect of someone else being able to read out thoughts is frightening. Can we get convicted for thought crime? When we are upset with someone? How can we guard our thoughts? Is there a way to train our mind so we only ever think about what is noble and nice?

We find many examples in religious books when a deity is able to read the minds of people. In the light of current development such stories are no longer far fetched.

Of course, the reading of our thoughts is a necessity if we want to have our mind transferred into a powerful quantum computer. But who will command these computers? Once we get transferred into them, don’t we lose all control over our destiny? Who can we trust with maintaining and preserving our very self, our mind?

Here are a few links to consider:

Bionic sight

bionic eyeWe do not fully appreciate the treasures we have with our senses until we lose them. We take our sight, hearing, feeling of heat and pressure granted. Generally, we take our health granted… until it gradually slips away. It is only when you lose what you had that you realise the value of it. Continue reading

Control objects with your mind

mind controlled vehicleNot long ago mind control still belonged to the realm of science fiction, but science has advances so much that it is now a reality today.

At the laboratories of biomedical engineering at the University of Minnesota professor Bin He and his associates developed a 3D brain-computer interface that allows the controlling of object by brain waves, without implanting a chip in the brain. Continue reading

Sensor may lead to artificial skin that senses the environment

Listen with webReader

Artificial skinScientists at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have developed a flexible sensor utilising nano technology, an array of inexpensive, low voltage nano sensors that may lead to the creation of artificial skin that can feel touch, humidity and temperature. There has been earlier attempts to develop such e-skins, but they could only detect touch. These sensors are ten times more sensitive than earlier touch-based e-skins.

This artificial skin, once developed, could be attached to prosthetic limbs enabling amputees to sense their environment.
