A quote from Isaac Asimov

Post by Bruhlo (Zain) on Sat Jul 18, 2015 8:43 pm

This is a quote from Isaac Asimov's book "Second Foundation".
(ellipsis ... means a part I removed because it's not relevant)

"All the suffering that humanity ever knew can be traced to the one fact that no man ... could really understand one another. Every human being lived behind an impenetrable wall of choking mist within which no other but he existed. ... Because they did not know one another, and dared not trust one another, and felt from infancy the terrors and insecurity of that ultimate isolation - there was the hunted fear of man for man, the savage rapacity of man toward man."

In the book where this example was from, there was a group of people that were the exception to this. They completely understand the emotions of everyone around them, and can infer what they are thinking. Psychic basically.

it's a reason why I think it's important that scientists make some kind of mental computer interface. then people could understand each other.

but for all I know, it could also be dangerous.

i think a mental connection online would be responsible for a large scale destruction of life,hacking is horrible as is,if someone could invade your mind and shut off the ability to breathe or something,it'd be horrible.

I think the brain is a little too complex for that to happen. but yeah, if something like that had a deep enough connection then things could go bad.

I'm less worried about hacking, and more worried about something TV does already. Fill everything with ads. Corporate messages.
