Default Mind Control

YouTube - That's Impossible Mind Control (2 of 5)

Text messaging with the mind, moving things with our minds, etc. The technology is and/or is being developed. It is all right around the corner.

It also shows that the government has the technology to brainwash, and control the minds of the population. It's pretty scary stuff, and i think more people should be aware of it.

If mind control actually worked you wouldn't have started this thread.

Couldn't be bothered with watching the whole thing, but what I saw was about controlling things with the mind - such as controlling a robotic arm with thought. You need to have electrodes registering the activity in the brain and when these pick up brain activity that would normally move an arm (f.ex), the machine moves the arm for you. The applications for this sort of technology are of course many, for example for people who are paralyzed or missing limbs.

However, there's a pretty big leap between you controlling something with your brain and someone taking control of your brain. Reading brain activity does not equal controlling it.

edit :

It was interesting enough, so I saw the rest. Although I realize it was 2/5, there was nothing in there about people or machines controlling minds. It was all about reading it, such as being able to look at the brain to tell if someone's lying during a trial. Big diff!

Hrm. I agree with previous posts in that creating technology that allows you to do things like text message with your mind or moving things with your mind is completely different from the government being able to brainwash and control minds...

Mass brainwashing is rampant. Did you know that woman never smoked until the Hollywood film starlets were puffing in every scene?
And people were fine washing their hands with other soaps up and till commercials like these were coming out.

Mind control is simply getting someone to believe a lie.
Happens all the time.

Manipulation through lies and advertisement is obviously not the intended topic for this thread, nor is it brought up in the video.

Can't we just let this one rest now?

Yeah we've already had this tedious discussion once before.

So disregard the possibility of a realistic conversation that's based on a topic that's eerily centered in a conspiratorial pool of thread ideas started by a serial poster of such often closed subjects...

Check.
