It is easy, as a result of know-how can be utilized for good issues, and never so good issues. What is nice? Should you consider in your faith, and you’re a religious follower, you may see no downside with this, since you are serving to folks attain their full potential, and serving to them to be good – getting them into maybe heaven as an illustration. Nevertheless, you’re additionally altering their mind, then in doing so you’re modifying the particular person, and altering their notion of free will – is that good I ask?
Sure, science fiction authors discuss issues like this on a regular basis, it is actually nothing new, and Arthur C Clarke did focus on one thing comparable with the mind caps that folks wore in his well-known work “3001”. So what if the way forward for mind chips, and pc/thoughts interfaces for on-line social networks turned the way forward for thoughts management? It is a related query, and maybe one thing we have to focus on it had been going to speak in regards to the future applied sciences, I am certain you’d agree.
Positive, and we are able to see the resultant in Gattica, 1984, and different well-known works and what of the Borg? Simply as mass media is misused, Marshall McLuhan famous, TV is a mass thoughts manipulator, advertisers instantly began utilizing “subliminal adverting” and branding and propaganda, use of schooling for indoctrination and let’s not even get into the Catholic Church’s millennial of non secular dominance (spectacular) or these large political management billboards and brainwashing of populations in so many elements of the world.
Think about a mind chip to help in controlling the plenty for no matter cause, it could put the most well-liked books of all time to disgrace, and outpace something a TV or social media website may ever hope for. Not that every one these issues aren’t doing effectively within the current interval, it is simply a few extra generations of those applied sciences and it is an entire new ball sport certainly.
Obama’s marketing campaign was an excellent use of “branding” and PR, and China and so many different nations are utilizing censorship fairly effectively, sadly it is principally US based mostly know-how. “What if a regime deemed sure actions immoral, and thus prevented the person from the free-will and stopped their brains proper then and there,” was one other query my acquaintance had requested. That is an excellent level. Positive, thoughts management might be used on this manner – however as a lover of freedom, that situation of mind-control to restrict human selection is relatively bothersome to me (to say the least).
Now then, since it is a potential eventuality, and it may grow to be a major problem the longer term, I might actually such as you to please think about all this and assume on it. There could also be some causes to have thoughts managed gadgets to assist with severe challenges, or prison exercise, however I feel you’d agree that utilizing it for spiritual indoctrination and management is effectively past what anybody may legitimately think about pretty much as good.
