My previous post discussing the excerpt I chose from the article, my nugget, was on the subject of telepathy. I questioned why Bush was able to predict so many advances in technology accurately, with the exception of one. Well I had not done my research, and quickly discovered that we are on the verge of telepathy. In 2014 an experiment was done to prove that direct brain to brain translation is possible. A message was taken non-invasively from a brain thinking of the words “hola” and “ciao”; this information was emailed to a person in France and was decoded into flashes of light which could be interpreted by the brain to mean “hola” and “ciao”.
Although Bush only mentioned this concept as a suggestion, or a shot into the dark, it looks like the wheels are finally turning. Who knows how many years it will take for scientists to harness this technology, and then years upon that to actually implement it into a daily instrument. Until then we are stuck using old fashioned mechanical forms of communication.
