Your Dream is being seen: Beware

Hi all.

 

So what is the most private moment of your day? For me it is the time when i am dreaming. 

 

Whatever is running in your mind and in the core of your heart, you visualize those things in your dreams.  No one can ever find out what you have dreamt, unless you reveal it. But not anymore. The ghost is watching whatever is on your dream screen.  I am not joking. I recently read an article saying that dreams can be observed with the help of a brain monitoring scanner.

 

Scientists in the United States led by Professor Jack Gallant of the University of California, Berkeley, have built a computer that can “decode” the brain activity signals from a scanner and match them to photographs of what a person has seen.

“Our results suggest that it may soon be possible to reconstruct a picture of a person’s visual experience from measurements of brain activity alone,” Prof Gallant wrote in journal Nature.

The study raises the possibility in the future of the technology being used to visualize scenes from a person’s dreams or memory.

“Our data suggests that there might potentially be enough information in brain activity signals measured using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to do this in the future… In fact, so much information is available in these signals that one day it may even be possible to reconstruct the visual contents of dreams or visual imagery,” Prof Gallant stressed.

According to experts, the technique could also be useful for understanding the mental state of a person who is in a coma. However, it inevitably raises the fear that such a technology could be used for interrogating a person for “thought crimes”.

 

There are so many wrong things for which this technology can be used.  So, please think about it –  will we really use this for the good of humanity? Tell me………

  1. I believe that while we have the opportunity to use it for good. Humanity as a whole will not. It will be just like Minority Report.
