Mind control via internet

From Russia Today website:

Pentagon's DARPA researchers learn to control rat's brain over Internet

Government mind control may not be as farfetched as it sounds: after 15 years of research, scientists have found a way to transmit information from one brain to another, thereby controlling the thoughts of its test subject.

Scientists have successfully captured the thoughts of a rat in Brazil and electronically transmitted them through the Internet to the brain of a rat in the US. The Brazilian rat had been energetically running around in a lab. When the American rat received the brain waves of its South American counterpart, it immediately began to mimic the behavior – despite the thousands of miles between them, Reuters reports.

Scientists refer to the technique as a “brain link”. The $26 million study of brain-machine interfaces was funded by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which ultimately hopes to have this technology available to humans.

By linking human brains together, scientists believe they can combine brainpower to solve problems that are too difficult for one person to handle alone, Duke University Medical Center neurobiologist Miguel Nicolelis told Reuters. Nicolelis refers to this link as an “organic computer”, and said scientists will first test it out on monkeys to determine its feasibility.

But not all researchers are excited about the prospect of brain manipulation.

“Having non-human primates communicate brain-to-brain raises all sorts of ethical concerns,” one neuroscientist told Reuters. “Reading about putting things in animals’ brains and changing what they do, people rightly get nervous.”

This sort of technology raises the concern about the possibility of using humans or animals as soldiers in battle, the scientist added.

While the idea may be unbelievable to some, neurobiologists claim that brain-machine interfaces have actually moved far beyond what is publicly known. Andrew Schwartz, a University of Pittsburgh neurobiologist, says that the experiment with the rats “is of limited interest” considering other advances in the field.

“It’s cool that the stimulus came from another brain” rather than an electrical device,” bioengineer Douglas Weber told Reuters. “[But] many labs have shown that animals can detect electrical stimuli delivered to the brain. This paper simply shows that the animals can detect electrical stimuli… from another rat’s brain.”

The same team of DARPA-funded researchers have also been able to send rats brain signals that caused them to press a lever a the sight of a red light, distinguish narrow openings from wide ones, and poke water a water port with their nose.

But by granting $26 million to scientists to develop this sort of technology, DARPA is likely expecting the research to be of use to the Pentagon at some point – whether it’s for problem-solving or other uses not yet defined.

They'll have to start slowly, what might be the first task for a brain link with humans? All run round energetically?

It might work for the NHS - just think how many plump people they could get to exercise by wiring them up to the brain of an athlete. oooh I'm looking forward to my Matrix microchip - the only microchip I have at the moment is covered in salt 'n' vinegar.

A scientist at the University of Amsterdam found an easier solution re plump people.
Her research is in the same 'rat' stage. She worked it out by 'poep' = shit 'transplantation'.
Dripping down the good * down the throat of a plump rat, or even putting it up the plump one's a**e
did result in a change of metabolism and 'created'' nice proportioned, happy rats.

The story is from 'het Parool' a Dutch/Amsterdam daily paper.
'poeptransplantatie'

Oh I just loved this bit:
"But by granting $26 million to scientists to develop this sort of technology, DARPA is likely expecting the research to be of use to the Pentagon at some point – whether it’s for problem-solving or other uses not yet defined."

Oooh, now that's a hard one - laughat

I used to reference '1984' by Orwell, but behind the scenes I think we've gone beyond that already - call me paranoid or cynical (many have!), but I really don't think it will be used for 'problem solving' (unless the 'problem' is those who refuse to believe all they are told winkwink
