It’s that creepy ideas time again…

Recently a basic level of telepathy was achieved. It was possible to encode brain activity into a binary signal or file, email it far away and apply it to a receptor, who received the brain activity and reconstructed the original thought.

If thought can be encoded as brainwaves… Can’t we create a device, that using a machine learning algorithm, learns to recognize hate-thoughts and even, using the same technology in reverse, replace them? Eventually… We could ban from certain realms people that refuses to wear the device.

It would be a peaceful world. Because we won’t be really at control, anymore.

Many people object to “wasting money in space” yet have no idea how much is actually spent on space exploration. The CSA’s budget, for instance, is less than the amount Canadians spend on Halloween candy every year, and most of it goes toward things like developing telecommunications satellites and radar systems to provide data for weather and air quality forecasts, environmental monitoring and climate change studies. Similarly, NASA’s budget is not spent in space but right here on Earth, where it’s invested in American businesses and universities, and where it also pays dividends, creating new jobs, new technologies and even whole new industries.

Not all women are monsters?
Here’s a pack of skittles.

10% are poisoned.
No. 5% of them are poisoned.
Have a few!
