Brain implants could make telepathy a reality

A leading surgeon believes that we will gain the ability to read each other's minds within as little as 20 years.
It might sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but researchers have already managed to create brain-computer interfaces capable of reading and interpreting human thought patterns.

According to Dr Eric Leuthardt of Washington University, it is likely that in the future such technology will make it possible for two people with neural implants to communicate with each other telepathically.

"A true fluid neural integration is going to happen. It's just a matter of when," he said. "If it's 10 or 100 years in the grand scheme of things, it's a material development in the course of human history."
In addition to sharing messages, such a system could also make it possible for two people to communicate emotions, images and even memories.

"At the pace at which technology changes, it's not inconceivable to think that in a 20-year time frame, everything in a cell phone could be put into a grain of rice," said Dr Leuthardt.

"That could be put into your head in a minimally invasive way, and would be able to perform the computations necessary to be a really effective brain-computer interface."

"It's going to happen. This has the potential to alter the evolutionary direction of the human race."

I don't want anyone to read my mind. However, this technology could work in another way. Say you wanted to selectively communicate some emotion or feeling or thought to another.  I write little fictional stories, but I always have doubts that a reader actually understands what I have written. If I could compose a story in such a way that the receiver of the story could experience it as I want them to through some similar technology... One of my fictional characters has a Dumb Luck Brain Implant. That may be a better idea.

Just... no.

Cool idea, but it's a slippery slope... What would keep governments, movements, cults, etc from broadcasting raw emotion and "stirring up the masses"? Instant riot, or revolution, or mass acceptance of some rather dodgy ideas and ideals... My rule of thumb (about tech anyway) is always assume the worst possible applications...

It could remove ALL civility.  OTOH, it would be the ULTIMATE in anti-PC

The implants are actually to explode heads Kingsmen style.

Telepathy is already a reality.
