An Honest Portrait

Today’s Daily Post was “A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?” Coincidentally, I was watching a TED talk this morning on how close to mind reading chips we are. The synchronicity was too strong not to share it.

As for whether I would take the chip?

I probably would. Some studies have shown people have a tendency to impute malice where there is only accident. While I try to avoid assumptions it would be useful to have more information.

Also, a brain chip! I would be proper cyberpunk with one of those.

    1. Apart from closing our eyes, humans can’t turn off their senses at the moment.

      It might be very odd at first, but I anticipate my unconscious would start to filter the thought-data in the same way it filters hearing and so forth at the moment.
